Week in Pictures - November 8 - 14, 2008

Week in Pictures

Join my lonely meme and create a running, photo diary of your week. It can contain your favorite picture of the week or a picture for everyday. Whatever you like as long as their is a story or description to go with it.

I am trying to create a legacy for my children and Photos are the best way. When I look back at my childhood photo albums I wish my mom was around to tell me the details of the photo like:

Where we were going?
What was happening?
How old was I?
Who are those people?

Scrapping is a great way because you get some photos and some journaling, but who has time for that these days?

November 8, 2008 - We headed out to a really fun, gymnastic party. The kids had a blast with their classmates as the entire class was invited. It was very controlled and everything was organized to the T. I guess when you have over 25 kids in a big facility that has to be. In this photo they are all waiting their turn to jump into a big pool of foam blocks. I really wish I was still a kid sometimes.

November 9, 2008 - Handsome loves his boxing gloves. He wears them all the time. In this shot he was actually pretending to hit himself in the head and was in the process of falling.

November 10, 2008 - I have been using Ortonish a lot in Picnik. I love the effect. This shot cracks me up. The steps are so steep and Goddess was basically just walking up them but you can see the effort it takes for her to accomplish this in this picture.

November 11, 2008 - Handsome was doing his "homework" from his OT instructor. He had problems holding his pencil, now we are working more on control. Up until this year he was using a 5 finger hold. I was so proud of him as I watched him work to control his movements.

November 12, 2008 - This is the calendar we use for the kids. They love doing the weather song, days of the week and month of the year songs every morning. Handsome pretends he is the teacher and Goddess plays the student. I love watching them. He sits in a chair like his teacher and she sits on the floor. He speaks as his teacher does asking her to raise her hand and "who is listening, I need listeners." Cute!

November 13, 2008 - Last month I won a giveaway from Life Is Like Champagne from Frill er Up Couture. The one Goddess picked out is called Chocolate in the Sky. It is a very fitting name for her. If you know us personally, you know what I mean. More of this cute Tutu to come. This was right after we received it and she wasn't in the mood to pose as she was watching a movie with her brother. Notice the forced smile.

November 14, 2008 - This is the Toobeez that I just reviewed today. In this photo the kids are singing at the top of their lungs, Hard Knock Life from Annie. Be glad I don't have sound on here.
