28/365 Let the Potty Training Fun begin! This time it was their idea. Alex was ready and did not want to wear diapers any longer! Except it didn't seem like they knew what to do with their new undies!  photo 1_zpsbae370bc.jpg  photo 2_zps01b44d74.jpg That night we went on an exciting car trip! Well, you can only see the boring part now but right before then we went to eat dinner at Carino's with the in-laws! That's always fun!  photo 3_zpsc2a15488.jpg  photo 4_zps2c87f98d.jpg 29/365 Tuesday morning I was trying to practice some lighting techniques and it was a total bust! You cannot look for Rembrandt triangles with a wiggly three year old! But I'll take these!  photo 5_zpsaf669bbe.jpg  photo 7_zpsd60063a8.jpg  photo 6_zps9f6ddddd.jpg 30/365 The oh so awaited day finally came! Emma's ballet class! She couldn't think of anything else for days and Wednesday was no different! She was so excited! And of course, I had to snap a picture right before we left for class!  photo 9_zps58fd068d.jpg She was so into it! She really was the cutest girl in that class! I know I am the mother but really, she was the cutest one!  photo 10_zpsea058890.jpg  photo 11_zpsdc83a19e.jpg And here is a little video I was able to take during class. That night I went to check on the boys and this is what I found! It was pitch black in their room but my trusty IPad light always helps!  photo 8_zpse2d32ff8.jpg 31/365 Thursday came and I was still not feeling well. Yeah, I have had some low blood pressure or something and I have been more than exhausted! So, my days have been spenty mostly laying down and the kids playing by themselves and watching TV. But I did manage to get this one that day! My kids spend IPad time in my closet for some odd reason.  photo 12_zpsf65353c6.jpg And that same afternoon Ryan surprised me with a new IPhone 5! So my phone less days were over! 24 days without a phone! That's a record! So, the first shot with my new IPhone would of course be one of my sweet husband! He's just so good to me! And good looking!  photo IPhone1web_zpscf516d75.jpg The kids spent the afternoon coloring and wasting my notepads!  photo IPhone2web_zps62305d8c.jpg  photo IPhone3web_zps741c0457.jpg 32/365 February is here! I cannot believe I did so well my first month of my project! I stuck to it for one whole month! And as proud as I was feeling I realized that I did not pick up my camera that day!Sarah and Jesse were in town, we were busy and I just forgot to pull my camera out. But I did find this shot on my IPhone from that day!  photo IPhone4web_zpsb050f19a.jpg 33/365 It has been bitter cold. I do not remember being this cold in a long time. I hate it. Emma has a hard time waking up in the morning.  photo IPhone5web_zpsa23f39d5.jpg Ryan took us to see Wreck it Ralph! I only snapped a couple shots at the arcade area.  photo 13_zps64f79102.jpg 34/365 There was no church on Sunday for this momma and her kids. Exhaustion has taken over me. But we did have a good dinner with the in-laws. And this closes one more week!  photo 14_zps51be9970.jpg  photo 15_zps92426339.jpg Looking forward to what this new week has to offer!
