Hi friends! Project Life Tuesday again. I’m sorry. I know you’re all probably getting tired of seeing endless pages of my girls’ PL books. I’m assuming you feel this way because I’m already getting tired of posting endless pages of my girls’ PL books. BUT the only reason I’m getting anything done is because I know I have a Tuesday deadline each week! Maybe I should just share a few pages once every other Tuesday? Then I know I’ll totally put off working on these books until the Monday before and won’t get near as much done. Well see. I’m feeling good about the fact that Addie’s book is now caught up to 2010! YEA! I know as soon as I get these books caught up they will be so easy to stay on top of. Then I’ll have to start thinking about Kole’s baby book again…
I was looking at Addison’s blanket the other day (poor thing has been dragged all over the place) and it made me think about my grandma. She made all of us (her grand kids) several blankets (Addison inherited one of mine). All beautifully hand stitched. She was an amazing quilter and would die a second death if she knew that I’ve taken clothes to the tailor just to have a button sewn on! I clearly did not inherit her talent or patience when it comes to sewing. :) The blankets she made me are so special. They are something tangible that remind me daily of the love she had for me. I guess that’s what I’m hoping these books will be for my kids. Something tangible that they will always have to remind them of their happy childhood and how much they were loved. Cause my kids sure as heck won’t be remembering me for my hand stitched quilts or my famous noodle casserole! HA! ;)
The picture of Addie in the green bows is one of my favorites which is why I put it in its own page protector. In front of one of her many sunshines. :)
Journaling: You are taking swimming and ballet lessons. You LOVE ballet and are the cutest little ballerina! I love watching you dance. You’re not too sure about swimming and don’t like putting your head under. I have to bribe you with ice cream. :)
Added more of their quotes. SO glad I recorded these on my blog.
Looks like a duplicate of Ellie’s book in some places, but in other places this book is very unique to Addison.
A lot of people have asked me where I got the 12×12 pockets that hold miscellaneous school stuff (shown on the right). They are from Becky Higgins original school kits. They go from pre-school to 12th grade. You can’t order these kits anymore, but if you follow her blog you know she has a new school kit in the works!
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
