Project Life - April 6-19

Well, it's Tuesday, and as luck would have it, Emma's CRCT session for this morning is a no-go, due to an error on the part of her teacher. So, that's hopefully good news to all my Project Life followers. So, put on your seatbelt, because I have 2 weeks worth of pictures to catch you up on.

Today was my Dad's birthday, so we celebrated at Texas Roadhouse, then had a mini "party" out of the back of our car.  Lame I know, but the table was already so crowded with food and it's just not easy to spread out, so we took our party to the car after dinner was over.  Happy Birthday Daddy!

One of Ike's co-workers Pepper has a garden at home, and grows tomato plants and peppers I think.  Anyway, Emma has been wanting to grow tomatoes for the longest time, so Pepper sent home a plant for her.  We potted it, and have been attempting to take care of it.  I think it looks pretty good so far.  I really hope it produces at least one tomato.

Our office has been a mess for a while now, and I really just haven't had the time to clean it up like I wanted to.  I finally decided enough was enough, and just made time.  It may still look a little messy to you, but you should have seen it before. LOL

This picture was taken in my mom's yard.  This is one of her knockout roses I think.  Isn't it pretty?  I love this time of year, with all the flowers blooming.  We have such pretty flowers in the South.

Emma loves to play outside.  Here is a pic of her on the swingset at Mom and Dad's house.  We have the exact same one at our house.  The thing she is on is called the star cruiser. Funny name, but it looks like fun.

After Sunday lunch, Mom took the girls on a wagon ride around teh neighborhood. They had a great time!

On Saturday our Friends Lauren and Clayton had their beautiful baby boy Michael Solomon.  We decided not to go see them at the hospital and just wait until they got home.  They came home on Monday around lunch, and Lauren called us as soon as they got settled so I could come for a visit.  He was just precious and tiny, and Emma couldn't get enough.  Doesn't Lauren look great?  I always look like death after I give birth, but after only 2 days, she looks awesome!  Congrats Clayton and Lauren!

Emma has started back with her piano lessons, but the time, we are taking from an individual, instead of in a group session.  This seems to be working out better already, and Emma is even wanting to practice!

We had steamed carrots, crescent rolls, sausage on the grill, and rice-a-roni for dinner.  Ignore the green beans...Madeline loves them, but I already had some ready for her, and didn't need this can.

Mom ordered some flip-flops from LL Bean a week or so ago, and got a clearance catalog in with her order.  I saw these "summer sneakers" in it, for $12.99.  They are normally around $40, but this was last year's version, so they had them on sale.  Mom also got a $10 off coupon with her order, so I ordered 2 pairs of the on-sale shoes and used the $10 off. What a deal.  These shoes are made to dry really fast, so you can get them wet and it's not a problem.  I figured these would be great for a trip to Wild Adventures, the zoo, or any other summer activity.  They look like old lady shoes in the pic, but actually look really cute on.

Isn't my hubby cute?  I sure think so!  In August we will have been together for 10 years.  I took this pic while we were waiting for our dinner at Sonny's.

I joined a website called Booksneeze last week.  It's a site that gives away books, in exchange for book reviews.  I've never done anything like this before, but thought it sounded like fun.  I had been wanting to get this book when it came out (May 4th), so when I saw it was going to be available through Booksneeze, I went for it.  I got it in the mail today, and I can't wait to read it. Pete Wilson is the pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN.  You should check this book out on Amazon.

Apparently I'm a tard, and let Madeline's 1st birthday go by without putting it in the paper.  So, I got on it this week, and got her info submitted, and her announcement was in the paper today.

Emma loves to play "babies".  She gets a few of them out, and lays them in the cradle, dresses them, wraps them in blankets, you know the drill.  Emma walked out of the room for a minute, and came back to this.  I think Madeline wanted to play too!


  1. These were great pictures for two weeks. My dad just had his bday too, that's a good idea to open presents outside. Love the floweres everyone has been posting, happy to see spring is here. So nice to visit with your mom and spend time with your girls. The baby is so so cute and tiny and your friend looks great, nice color on her. That's a yummy dinner. Green beans are my fave veggie. I like the shoes as long as they're comfy that's all that matters to me. Have a great week.

  2. Hi Leslie,

    I saw the comments you left me and just want to tell say that getting the wii fit back out is hard. I only got it out twice over this week. We love going to red lobster on our anniversary to treat ourselves ( dinner without kids) and one other time during the year. It's so sweet just to be with my guy and have him to myself. Enjoy your week.

  3. I would love to read Plan B! It sounds like a great book.
