Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2011! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay awhile. I'm Jessica and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins who has put together a wonderful kit to make this challenge easier.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving traditional scrapbooking behind. This just gives me the opportunity to focus my scrapbooking on trips and things that are important to me right now and not get all bogged down with every birthday, dinner, and holiday that comes along.
Each Tuesday, I will post my pictures/journaling from the previous week. Project Life Tuesday was created by Jessica Turner over at The Mom Creative and she hosts a linky for readers to link up their pictures. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the Project Lift button at the top of this post.
And finally, my POTW:
Saturday - My bestie, Shannon, came to visit and meet little Maddie and we took advantage of the weather and headed to the Arboretum.
Sunday - Look at these two cuties! Maddie is finally smiling and even laughing once in awhile. She had a blast with Auntie Shannon.
Monday - Two more cuties here! Shannon and I at the pumkin patch. I'm so glad she came to visit. It was wonderful having her here!
Tuesday - My dad and his wife, Sheryl, finally came down to meet little Maddie. We took them to the Arboretum today along with Jeff, Jakob, and Ashlyn. It rained this morning, so we had to detour to the mall for a couple of hours; but this afternoon it was beautiful. Since it was a week day and it had rained, we had the entire place to ourselves!
Wednesday - My dad and Maddie.
Thursday - When Shannon came last weekend, she brought Maddie an amazing gift, this treasure box! It is absolutely awesome and has so much meaning. I am a sucker for handmade personal gifts and I literally cried when I saw it. I am sure Maddie will treasure it always. Thank you Aunt Shannon!!!!
Friday - ccrd had planned me a baby shower, but Maddie's early arrival messed up that plan so they threw us a "Sip-N-See" today. We took Maddie to meet everyone and they had food, cake, drinks, games, and marvelous presents. I was in awe of their generosity and it was fantastic to see everyone again!
Thanks for visiting me this week!
