But I have a confession to make. I actually hate scrapping Halloween! I know, I know…don’t call the scrapping police on me. But when the same thing happens year after year I get bored. So that is when I turn to mini albums. I created this album a few years ago and we love it! It is super simple to keep up with, gives my boys something to look at, and doesn’t zap my creative spirit. :)

Every year I follow a similar format, to keep things simple. In fact, I’ve made enough layout bases to last through their 18th birthdays. That way all I have to do is print the photos, write a bit and I’m done. Love it!

Last year my oldest was obsessed with football. Well, actually, he still is. :) So he went as a Cheifs player. I was glad his team was red and white for baseball. Made the costume easy!

My youngest was hooked on the Wolverine costume because of the claws! I just loved seeing him strike poses. :)

I may not love scrapping Halloween, but I do love looking back through the album and seeing my boys costumes through the years. It’s the best of both worlds!

Week in the Life 2014 {Wednesday}

I’m still hanging in there with Week in the Life. Although the number of photos I take are way down from normal, I’m still glad I’m participating.

Here is my Wednesday:

Week in the Life 2014: Wednesday #scrapbooking #weekinthelife #everydaylife #photography

Me and the morning are not friends. :)

My oldest practicing piano. Always a battle, but worth it in the end.

Walking back from the bus stop. Love a beautiful sunny day!

And I actually got a bit of scrapping in. Yay!

And after working for a bit I chose to take a break for some TV time. I’m addicted to Switched at Birth right now!

Getting ready to watch the World Series game 7!

Week in the Life 2014 {Tuesday}

I think I need a photo of the fact that I have now blogged 2 days in a row! That’s like a record after my long summer off. :) And I’m even doing a bit of scrapping today! Miracles do happen.

Tuesday was a bit of a crazy day. School projects due, errands to run, work to do, piano, basketball practice, and a Thirty-One facebook party for me to do. Not to mention an amazing Royals game to watch! I’m loving that Week in the Life just happens to fall on the same week as the Royals playing in the World Series for the first time in 29 years! Such a fun week to document!

But on to the photos. Here is my Tuesday:

I bought the boys Count Chocula cereal for Halloween. You better believe I’m eating some too!

I love waiting for the bus on sunny days.

With a school project this large we drive to school. Youngest went on the bus, but Mommy drove the oldest and helped him carry in his simple machine Goblin Trap.

Then I rushed home to get in a bit of computer work done in the hour before excercise class. And yeah, I should have focused more on work and less on Facebook. ;)

Usually I LOVE yoga. Today I couldn’t get focused or relaxed. Spent a little extra time in child’s pose.

And then I was off to the post office and Costco. Still needed to get some Halloween candy!

Grabbed myself lunch at Panera. Sometimes I need a reward too!

Boys are home! Love this time of day, even on days like this where it begins the evening rush!

Today was older brother’s piano lesson, so my youngest got some rare screen time.

After a super fast dinner it was time for basketball practice. First one child and then the other.

My oldest is in a stage where he doesn’t want his picture taken. I take one anyway.

And then I put my phone on mute and act like I’m checking facebook. Yeah, I’m sneaky like that!

Week in the Life 2014: Tuesday #scrapbooking #weekinthelife #everydaylife #photography

I started selling Thirty-One bags at the beginning of Sept. Tonight I had a facebook party to run. But I couldn’t turn off the Royals! What a great game!

After a LONG day at work the hubs needs a little down time. iPad, Facebook, and Netflix are his favorites right now.

But he still has a little time for me. Even when he is “out of words” for the day.
