My album is officially done (and overflowing)! Today I’m sharing the last few pages of our 2015 Week in the Life album. Here’s what Sunday looks like…
Sunday was actually the first day I started with as I was putting my album together because it was still fresh in my mind.
I used some elements from the Build digital Story Kit, enlarging another 3×4 card to 6×8 and cutting out some “+” signs to show the events of a 20 minute span. It’s kind of a norm around here. I’ll start off folding laundry in my room and I’m usually joined by Liam or Emily very soon after. Today it was Liam, climbing the posts of my bed. He spotted the camera up on my dresser and wanted to take some photos. But he needed to roundup some of his favourite things first 🙂 His colouring binders, his bunny, and his Halloween bag. Emily came in to see what was going on and wanted in on the pictures too… and so it goes! It’s just a little thing, but I love that it’s been captured.
Another little norm right now…Emily playing in the bathroom sink. She pulls the little potty over to the bathroom counter and goes to town. I normally would have been shooing her away, but today I just hung out and watched her having fun. Seeing your kids happy is one of the best parts about being a mama. (“little details” from this digital brush set)
“She is quick and curious and playful and strong”. A Kate Spade quote that fits Emily so perfectly.
I spent a bit of time cleaning the bathroom and getting myself ready for the day. My make up routine hasn’t changed since highschool, ha! …and as I was doing that, they were “wrapping presents” in the living room. True Story.
We needed some groceries and some breakfast. I let the kids pick where we would go and they decided McDonald’s was the place to be because “there’s toys there” 🙂 (“hello breakfast” from this digital brush set) Watching Emily walk down the front steps is the reason my hair is turning grey. Well not entirely…but I always find myself holding my breath and saying a little prayer that she makes it down safely, preparing to lunge for her… and at the same time, trying to give her the space to practice her independence.
A few shots from the grocery store. By the time we arrive home, Emily’s ready for a nap. She falls asleep in my arms again (love that part!).
Liam and I get to hang out, just the two of us, while Emily naps. We play cards and eat cheesies 🙂 After Emily wakes up, there’s MORE playing…play-doh and forts. (Those tags from the GO Story Kit are my favourite!)
Sundays are usually catch up day for laundry and dishes and garbage. (I printed some digital art on the back of the tag from this set.) And when the kids start to really drive each other crazy, a bath is a pretty effective distraction 😉
And that’s our Sunday!
In the last 5 years I’ve attempted this project, this is the first one that really feels “complete”, and it’s got me super excited to start tackling some of my unfinished December Daily albums next 🙂 Stay tuned for those!
Thank you so much for stopping by today 🙂
