week in the life of us...

picture a day style.
I am still on track with taking a photo a day(something that represents our world for each day this year). I am even caught up on getting those photos in the album with the journaling to go with each day. I am loving this project. While I still love to scrapbook, I love that these photos have a home even if they don't ever make it onto an actual layout.

Here is a glimpse of what we have been enjoying this past week.


Brody watched Toy Story and Toy Story 2 for the first time this month. He is a HUGE fan of the movies. He now has to have Woody and Buzz tucked into bed with him every night. He has been walking around the house & quoting the movie. His favorite line is "Reach for the sky".


This is a favorite after dinner past time at our house. The boys love to head out into the back with Dad. John is so good about getting out and playing with the boys. Whether it's a game of catch, throwing the football, or playing goalie as the boys practice their shots on goal...everyone gets involved.


A big happy birthday to our favorite husband/daddy! We celebrated his big day with a baseball game, a soccer game, dinner, cake and presents. Whew....and to think we accomplished all of that between 5-9 pm.


Tanner got to take the mound for the first time this season. He was excited and so nervous. he has been waiting for his chance to pitch. He has wanted to show his coaches that he could do it and he did. He struck a couple of batters out and there were no RBI's while he was the pitcher. Way to go Kruppy!


I have been enjoying taco Thursdays...or Tuesdays at my friend, Moe's(Moe is in the bottom picture w/her new man) house. She is the hostess with the mostess. She makes yummy tacos and we all get together to visit and enjoy her home cooking. Tonight we played Go Fish, Old Maid, and a round of Memory. So much fun and something to look forward to each week.


It has been two days now & I still get giddy when I think about this. I had heard that a local radio station was giving away John Mayer tickets this weekend. I wanted to try and win some. I thought it was a long shot and planned on listening all weekend in hopes of winning. The first set of tickets were going to be given away at 5 pm. I heard the DJ announce that it was time to start calling. I picked up the phone and dialed. After two calls that ended with busy signals...the phone started to ring on my 3rd try. The man on the other end just said "hello". He didn't say "thank you for calling The End". I so thought I had dialed the wrong number. Then he asked if I wanted concert tickets. I started jumping up and down while screaming "No way". John thought I was totally joking and goofing around. So, long story short, I won tickets to see Owl City and John Mayer this summer. I am so excited and hope August gets here fast.


We finished tying our fleece blankets for the Binky Patrol. We signed up for the Disney "Give a Day, Get a Day" service project. We let the boys help pick out the fleece. It was fun to see what/why they picked it. For instance, Carter picked the fleece that had dogs on it. He picked it just in case there was a boy or girl who might love dogs just as much as he does. It was a great little service project for our family. It will be fun to hit Disneyland sometime this year...for FREE.


Carter received a note in the mail with $20.00 cash. It was from Grandma Shore. The note attached said that Carter had won her drawing. She had entered every family member and then she randomly picked winners in remembrance of Grandpa. She is always doing fun things like this. She is the best. Carter's name was drawn and so the $20.00 was his to spend. He picked out a new Giants jersey in honor of Grandpa who loved the Giants. We love being part of a fun, loving family.

So how are you? How has your week been?

p.s. as a side note, thank you to all of you who have dropped money off in support of my Mom and the Rape Crisis Center. You are awesome. I will be collecting money until Wednesday morning and then I am heading to the Bay Area to participate in the Walk a Mile and Cheer on the good men who will be walking in their heels :-). If you are out of state and mailing money, just let me know how many tickets you need so I can let my Mom know before the drawing. I will hand deliver the money then.
