A Week in the Life...Monday

This year I decided to hop on the Week in the Life train. It seems to be a pretty popular and fun thing to do. Plus it gives me something else to do besides all the other things I need to do. lol  For those of you who have absolutely no clue as to what I could possibly be talking about, AWITL is a really fun project where you chronicle your every day life for a week using photos, journaling and maybe even a few scrap supplies.  It is all about recording the every day moments.  Visit Alie Edwards blog for more info and to sign up.
 Here is my first day.

10:00-11:00 am
Time for a little My Little Pony, Transformers and Wii games for the kids.
Mommy took the quiet time to take a shower and get dressed
Kale is a great little babysitter.  He sat and watched Kaitlyn while I was in my room.
Kiara colored at the table.

Lunch time
Kale had Pasta with butter and Kiara had Beanie Weanies
Kaitlyn fell sleep on the floor in the living room with her milk.  So cute.

1:00 - 3:00
Blissful quiet.
All of them asleep at one time.
Mommy is resting, too.

Precious peace is interrupted by Kale running in my room to tell me that Kiara had colored all over her carpet with a marker.
I thought for sure it was the Sharpie I left on the counter.
Thank goodness it was a washable marker and came right out.
Really wish I had gotten a picture but all I could think of was getting the marker out of the carpet while it was fresh.  I am sure there will be plenty more naughty things to take pictures of over the next few days.  They always find something to get into.  :)

The floor is clean, mommy is calm and Kiara has been properly scolded for her behavior.  Order has been restored once again.

Making Chili Lime Tilapia and fries for dinner.

Daddy heads off to softball and the kids and I get packed up to go to the little playground at Kale's old kindergarten.

Make it to the park.  It is still 100+ outside so we don't stay long.
I did get a few pictures of them at play.

Kaitlyn's first time in a real swing.  She had a very fun time.

7:30- 8:00
Got ready to shower but the hot water heater was off.

Still no hot water.  The water heater turned off again.
Guess they will have to shower tomorrow.

That is pretty much it for Monday.
We don't lead the most exciting life but it is the life we have to live so we make the most of it.  Every day is a gem to be discovered be each of us and it is the discovery of the day that makes life so exciting.  I am so glad to be making this WITL journey so I can stop and appreciate the joy in each day I live here with my babies.

Your pictures are wonderful and the park ones are gorgeous, such great lighting. They are so cute playing and having fun. Naps are the best for everyone!! I also like beanie wienies, this made me laugh because I'm the only one that calls them this, so nice to see another one. Great job capturing your day.
