week in the life 2015 : monday photos & words

August 18, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… The story of Monday morning started Sunday night. I put Meredith to sleep in her bed and decided to go to my own bed, which I hadn’t slept in since last week. I don’t know what time, but at some point she came into my bed and I didn’t resist it because I don’t make rational decisions when I’m sleeping. I woke up to Liam wanting to nurse at about 4:30 a.m. and once he fell back asleep I got out of bed around 5:30. I had a nice quiet morning…

week in the life 2014 : sunday in the album

April 17, 2015

Finally, the last update of my 2014 week in the life album! I’m so glad to have this in the books. More of my overall thoughts about the project at the end, but first here is a typical Sunday for us. Sunday mornings involve finishing up whatever chores I didn’t quite get to the day before (this day it was washing diapers) and lots of playing and lounging with the kids before getting ready for church. Then we all head to church! We meet in an elementary school currently. Liam goes in the nursery and usually Meredith sits with us for a few minutes to hear the songs and then will go to her preschool class. This particular Sunday was…

week in the life 2014 : saturday in the album

April 8, 2015

Recently I had a day off without the kids so I powered through and completed this album! It took me most of the day but it feels awesome. I had a lot more photos to deal with since it was a weekend, and I had to leave quite a few out but the ones I chose tell the best stories. Saturday started out a little rough because it was the morning after Halloween. I was kind of expecting it but it was still hard! Once I powered through the morning with the kids (which did have its fun parts), however, David took over and gave me a good chunk of time to myself. I used it to knock out all…

week in the life 2014 : friday in the album

March 17, 2015

You guys I’m so happy about this album update! I think it’s actually my favorite day so far (see the others here). I think because I left room for simple filler cards, and there is a bit of a color scheme. I never use orange in my scrapbooking, but since it was Halloween I went with it. On this page I actually used a flip page protector. I wanted to include most of the Halloween pictures, but I needed just a little more space to document some quotes and a favorite moment. It worked out great! I love this last series of photos of Meredith jumping into David’s arms. She slept in her Spider-Man costume also. <3 I’m re-inspired to…

week in the life 2014 : thursday in the album

March 11, 2015

Over halfway done with this album!! It’s only four months past my original “due date” for finishing it…but I¬†will finish! Like I said last week, I’m bored of the black and white and I’m just trying to get the pages together. I’m sticking with the same elements and trying to add just enough detail so that I know what’s going on. All morning photos. The journaling card can be found here. Left hand side of this page has photos from work, a screenshot of a text I got from David (blurred for privacy), and a couple of observations.   On the right are photos from a Halloween party we went to at the nursing home David’s grandfather lives in. I…
