In the middle are some very dark and far from perfect pictures I took in a hurry of E's room after a big clean up. It was a huge mess, seriously you couldn't see parts of the floor! There had been a big influx of things at the holidays and we hadn't taken the time to find new places for everything. It was so good to finally do a reorganization.
If you are from Michigan you might have heard of how we celebrate Fat Tuesday. We all eat paczkis, which are heavy filled donut like Polish pastries. I think it's a Michigan thing or at least a regional Midwestern thing. When Brad and I lived in CA and NM no one had heard of them and didn't know of the tradition we grew up with. We really missed them and always felt something was missing at the beginning of Lent season. Now that we're back we've discovered a really good local source and introduced the little guy to them this year. We didn't give him the traditional prune filled ones but he sure liked the cream ones!
The last picture is of E with a Valentine package her Godmother sent her. She really loved it and we painted her nails with the glittery purple polish right away.
At the top are pictures from a Daisy meeting, the girls are showing team work to get up from the floor with arms linked. Underneath is my son successfully drinking from a straw for the first time while at our early Valentine dinner out. My husband hates crowds, especially with kids so we go out the night before. It's still busy but not as bad, we let E choose the restaurant and she picked the Olive Garden. The bottom has two pictures from that Friday, E had the day off of school and we just hung out.
The back of the first insert has pictures from ER's Valentine party at school. I went in and volunteered at it and we had a lot of fun eating ice cream and doing crafts. At the bottom she's holding her heart pocket filled with cards from classmates.
The entire backside of this insert is devoted to a family dinner we had with my God family that Saturday but I decided to keep it private because I'd have to blur so many faces. It was one fun week! Did you notice I think I may have figured out a good way to photograph my PL pages? Only took more than a year of taking pictures and sharing but I think this way is a greatly improved over the way I used to.
