Daily Life Week 36: So Blessed!

I just love looking over my photos at the end of the week. After a long hard week, it is just what I need. Looking back at my pictures make me realize how blessed I am: 5 kids that wake up loving me every morning even though I don't deserve it, delicious food on my table 3x a day (well, mostly delicious), a home where we are making lots of memories, a God who loves me and a husband who makes me laugh (although I didn't even include him in this page!). Every Saturday night I look through my photos of the week and I'm reminded of why I do what I do. Look at those faces. Every hard moment is totally worth it.

Now a note on my actual scrapping. With this template I actually added an extra photo spot and adjusted a few photo spots to fit my photos (really, it's okay to do that!). I even used some not-so-great phone photos because they really showed a big part of our life (the B&W photos you see there). I made those photo spots a little smaller and made my photos B&W because the quality was pretty bad....but hey, they look okay on my page. Don't you think? You would think that since it's such a big part of our life that I would take better pictures. Sometimes you are just in the moment with your kids and you ask your husband to snap a photo with his phone. No time to go get the big camera...it would ruin the moment and then you would lose the photo and the moment. And you don't want to do that.

I'll stop chatting and let you take a look at my pages. Don't forget to grab the free journal template below.

Journaling:  On this page, we have Lydia and Kyla playing a homemade game while Emmie does Lydia’s hair.     Emmie made a delicious meal for us. I got my camera out to snap a photo of the stuffed shells that she made, and I ended up forgetting about snapping a photo of the food and started snapping photos of us around the table....and Kyla photo bombed this one.    The picture to the right was just a few brief moments in our van. We stuffed 9 kids in the van to drive about 500 feet on a back-road so that we wouldn’t have to trek up the mountain.

Journaling:  Matthew loves to build things with his Legos, especially airplanes.    The 2 black and white photos were of some of our nighttime activities. Reading and playing ASL games.    Emmie brought the Ukulele to co-op for a demonstration in the history class.    And Lydia being silly while she ate her lunch (a very common site)...and it looks like Emmie is photobombing this pic.
