Project Life: April 20-26

Tuesday, April 20, 2010
After work today, we went to visit Ike's mom, who lives in a nursing home.  She is completely "with it" in her mind, but physically can't take care of herself anymore, due to a injured shoulder, that can't be repaired.  Here is a picture of her and Madeline.  Emma was too busy playing on Ike's iphone to get in the picture.

Ike had to go out of town for the day with work.  Here is a pic of him and his co-worker Andy before they left.  Emma wanted Ike to take along her dinosaur so that he would have something of her's with him, and Andy decided to hold it up for the picture.

Madeline's new thing, is to climb up into the furniture.  I was in the kitchen doing dishes, and I came back to this.  I guess she wanted to relax and read a book.

Madeline is getting so many teeth, and she loves to show them off!

Ike went to the drag races in Cecil all day today, and left me and Madeline at home. We had a great relaxing day, and I did just a good amount of things done around the house.  Mostly though, we just played and cuddled.  I really needed a day like today.  Here is a picture of Ike's ticket to the races. I forgot to ask him for a picture from the race.

Here we are at Walmart, checking out.  We had to get some groceries for the week.

Emma is taking the CRCT this week, so I have time to kill in town in the mornings.  My grandma lives with my mom now, but still has her house in town, so I have been going there to hang out and wait. One of the things that always sticks in my mind about my grandma's house is what we all call "the wedding wall".  This wall above her couch, is where she hangs up pictures of the weddings in our family.  There are a few pictures that aren't from a wedding, but they are the exception.  Our is the gold frame with the round mat, to the left, and mom mom and dad are in an identical frame to the right of us, and my sister is in the frame to the right of that.  The one on the far right is my aunt and uncle, and the pictures on the far left aren't from a wedding.



  1. Great pictures! Your daughter is adorable.

  2. How sweet? Asking her dad to take her stuff animal so he would have something of her's. Very nice that he posed for a picture!

  3. Love the wedding wall. My grandparents had one in their home too. Have a great week!

  4. Your blog background is so springy and pretty. Great pics of the week!

  5. I love the variety of your pictures this week. The wedding wall is a great idea, my grandma has a graduation wall that I love to look at. Have a good weekend, hoping to have my new pics up tonight or tomorrow.
