Project Life: Week #5

It's Week 5 of Project Life! This time I have my weekly pages and two pages of inserts with scapbook pages and some of ER's kid work.  I've also used pictures to fill the slots at the bottom for the first time.  I normally just journaling cards in these and it's fun to change it up a bit. 
Oh whoops, just noticed I forgot to add the title to my week card.  Will have to add that in a moment.
  • Sunday: E went to a Rainbow Fairy Birthday party filled with fairytale touches!  Top picture is of her with the birthday girl.  I had so many pictures from this event that I added photos of the cupcakes and ER with the fairy wings, ribbon wand, and book that she got as a favor at the bottom.  There are even more pictures of the decorations on my first added scrapbook page.
  • Monday: No school and as it ended up no dance either, ER was acting oddly and complained of a stomach ache.  She spent most of the afternoon curled up on the couch.  But felt well enough to do some face painting on Mommy.  I ended up with a colorful assortment of hearts and snowflakes all over my forehead and cheeks.
  • Tuesday: Unlike ER, LB will actually play in the swing.  He is a lot more interested in toys than she was as a baby and loves to make things spin, give things a shake, and of course...put everything in his mouth!  Great Grandma Emma Jane sent him this little lamb from Missouri and these are the pictures I took to send her of him playing with it.
Here is the second half of the week:
  • Wednesday: I had two pictures I wanted to include for today.  The heart shaped pieces of bread for our traditional first day of February heart shaped breakfast and one of our neighbor who came over to play after the bus dropped the kids off.  Together hey whipped up a yummy feast! 
  • Thursday: Groundhog's Day!  For the first time ER was really interested in this tradition, I wrote about it on the card for today and included two of her Groundhog worksheets in the inserts (see below)
  • Friday: Valentine's Day card picture!  It wasn't until after I uploaded the pictures that I noticed LB is making quite the gesture in his photo, too funny!
  • Saturday: We celebrated Valentine's Day with my parents and they watched the kids so Brad and I could have date night.  While we were out LB tried rice cereal for the first time.  He's still not too sure about it but is willing to try it each time it's offerred.  More ends up on him than in him.
Insert #1: The birthday party - my friend went all out decorating her house for her daughter's Rainbow Fairy themed 6th birthday party.  I had to take pictures of all the details!
 I saved ER's Groundhog story and the poem with litttle puppet she did in school.
 Insert #2: Valentine's Day with my family, including the tickets to the movie Brad and I went to with my brother, Underworld Awakening.  I know, not the most romantic but hey my little brother was also along with us at this point.  I wanted to see a fun movie that wouldn't try to educate me about social issues or depress me with a deep meaningful message.  Underworld was perfect and hey who doesn't like to see a strong female who's the toughest one in town?
This week was my most elaborate, but one of my favorite addtions, was also the simpliest, these little self adhesive tabs for my inserts, an idea I got from Steph's Stuff.  I'm so enjoying the community feel of this project, and love seeing what everyone else has been up to and their pages!  If you're a Project Lifer, make sure you leave me a comment so I can come see your pages or photos!
