Yes, you read it right :) We are busy over here with bedtimes & birthdays!! After just finishing up celebrating Ryan's birthday at the end of December, we were on to my father's and then Nicholas'. December & January are busy months for us!! My plan was to move Nicholas into the bed the week after his birthday. Yes, I know, he's turning three, and in a crib. Not to mention he fit the crib end to end. But he never tried to get out & he liked it & all mommies know how much easier it is when the kiddos are confined to a crib :) Less worrying about rolling out, or getting stuck in the crack between the wall and the bed, or running around in the middle of the night :) Unfortunately, Ryan put our plans in fast forward as somehow he managed to break the front of the crib Saturday morning. Nicholas' crib had a small front portion that folded down when taking kiddos out and then pulled up & clicked shut on either side with latches when putting kiddos in. Don't ask me how, but he not only broke one of the latches, but also a chunk of wood came off - BOYS!!! Anyways, we spent the day safety-proofing the room for any late night wanderings and getting the bed ready. This little man LOVED it & did so awesome - YAY!!
The next day we celebrated his birthday - Mickey Mouse style!!
And of course a birthday of my boys wouldn't be complete without some lego building :)
Amidst all the celebrations, I have tried to squeeze in some scrappy time :) Finally I was able to get my Project Life cover page done. I recently purchased the Cocoa Daisy Day in the Life January kit and used it to start my album. I loved the mix of colors against the black & white pics. Unfortunately as I was looking through my photos, I realized the ONLY family pic I had was from Halloween - totally sad!! And we are not even all looking the same direction :) Classic!! Anyways - I still used it, along with 2 of my favorite pics of the boys. I kept it pretty simple - which by the way is my goal for the year with Project Life. I didn't stress about non-rounded and rounded corners. My favorite card is the yellow one. I added some hand-stitching and those gorgeous October Afternoon script alphas!!! A little bit of tone on tone action :)
I shared a sneak peek of this layout last week - but here's the full reveal!! This is my first layout with the January Noel Mignon Fresh Start kit. For details you can head over to the blog post HERE :)
I will be posting this Thursday at Noel Mignon on my Project Life organization and tips so be sure to stop on by :)
