Week in the Life 2015: Saturday

IMG_1204001

Ah Saturdays! Saturdays run at a much different pace than the rest of the week. If you think that means sleeping in, you would be incorrect. There’s no such thing as “sleeping in” with my two early bird munchkins. But we do get to hang out in our jammies a LOT longer. I’ll take it! Saturday’s mean there’s more time to make breakfast. When I ask the kids what they’d like for breakfast in the morning, the answer is almost always pancakes!

I mentioned yesterday that I’m running low on page protectors. The Week in the Life 6×8 digital templates  were the perfect solution to still be able to include lots of photos and journaling.

This is just one of 7 collage options included in the set (a selection of digital word art comes with the templates too that you can mix and match with different arrangements). I used this grid template to make a hybrid page, printing my journaling onto patterned paper and sticking it onto my printed photo grid, adding a bit of stitching and the “Saturday” washi strip.

Our go-to pancake recipe came from one of my best friends a few years ago. We stayed overnight and she made us these pancakes for breakfast. They were the best pancakes I’ve ever had so she wrote down the recipe for us. It’s been very well used, as you can see.

I scanned the original paper, tears and stains and all, shrunk it down a bit and printed it on matte photo paper to include in my album.

This wasn’t an overly eventful Saturday. My parents took the kids out for a fun afternoon at the Bronte Creek playbarn. I remember having such an awesome time there as a kid and I think it’s really cool that they get to go enjoy it now too. I stayed home to try to catch up on some other projects (without much luck!). They brought dinner home with them and we had a good time just hanging out for a bit. Emily distributed stickers as body art to everyone, including herself. Liam showed us all his “tricks”.

And then it was time for bed! Emily was completely zonked from her fun filled day and fell asleep while I was still rocking her. Liam and I hopped into my bed with some popcorn and watched a movie.

What is not to love about Saturdays… seriously! So thankful for this day.

One more day to go! I’ll be back tomorrow to share our Sunday. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

    I haven’t commented yet, but I have been really enjoying your week long series! Your album is gorgeous – even though it wasn’t the happiest week of your life. I think you found a really nice… balance in your documenting (I’m Dutch, not a native English speaker – it’s a bit hard to find the right word for it, hope you understand what I mean).

    And… you have totally inspired me to start my own WITL album. I was so far behind with everything (I have a nine month old son and we moved recently…) but last week I sorted all my pictures, and made layouts for PL. Now I just have to do the journaling and I am caught up with that – then onwards and upwards to my WITL 2015 (I have the pictures, and some of the journaling..). So… thanks!
