Project Life: February 16-22

Well, I'm back again for my weekly Project Life Update.  I really can't believe that I am still keeping up with this, and it's been 2 months already.  I think what keeps me going, is that we will have an awesome book to remember our year by when it's all over.

Madeline loves my iPhone.  She grabs it every chance she gets.  Here she is in Ike's office trying to chew on the case.

Look what I did today! I cleaned out the pantry.  It may not look that strait in this picture, but you should have seen it before.  This area always seems to get so messed up, and I had been ignoring it for way too long.

Look at this bathing beauty!  Ike had already left for the day, so after I got a shower, I decided to just give Madeline her bath in the sink.  She looks like she isn't too sure about it, but she loves to splash in the water.  I can't wait till summer and I can get her out in the pool.

One of the things that I have been really trying to get to is actually decorating our house.  We have lived her for 2, going on 3 years, and there are still blank walls everywhere.  I am just no good at decorating and accessorizing.  I just don't "see" it.   But, I am not letting that stop me.  I have finally decided to make use of all the wonderful pictures Kelly has taken for us, and I am finding places to hang them.  Here is a wall in between my kitchen and dining room that will soon be getting some decoration.

I've mentioned Emma's love for puzzles before, and she is at it again.  I found this cute 100 piece puzzle in the Dollar section at Target.

Madeline's first birthday is fast approaching, and I am trying to figure out the decorations and menu.  Here is a birthday banner I am working on for her party.

Today, for school, we did a ton of history.  We have been slacking on this area, choosing to focus on Math, Language Arts and Reading a little more.  Emma seems to be most interested in History and Science these days. I'm not sure if she is truly more interested, or if she is just avoiding the others.  Either way, an interested student makes a happy teacher.


  1. You have some great pictures for this week, a nice variety. I love puzzles too. I'm jealous of your pantry since I don't have one, it looks clean and neat to me. I'm not good at decorating either, my new house had white walls for 6 years before I was brave enough to paint the walls. I am always amazed at what Becky Higgins does to her house, she has no fear but it always looks good no matter what she does. Keep us posted when you do something. Have a good week.

  2. Great pictures! I hear you on the decorating thing - so very hard to do. I like the idea of taping where the pictures will be on the wall.

  3. Hey Leslie! I just got caught up on your blog! I like the project you're doing...pretty cool; casues you to pasue and take pics of things you wouldn't normally; which will in turn be appreciated down the road! I can't believe Madeline is one, where does the time go?? Also, so sweet to have celebrated your Granny's 80th birthday. I know my Granny has always loved her! Take care my friend!
