#ZOOCREW2014 Days 54-67


I missed my Wednesday deadline (I also misnumbered pictures this week too) to get my pic-a-day post up so yet again, you’re getting two weeks worth.  Why not see what my life has been like for two weeks all at once?!?  Mundane reality has hit, but Spring Break is not TOO far away.

IMG_8732Day 54: Seriously, this kid.  Love him!

IMG_8749Day 55: Conferences were Tuesday-Thursday, which meant a Spring Book Fair.  I love them, but too stressful to run one and still have the library functioning too.

IMG_8779Day 56: In true fashion, I started packing for our weekend away days before we were leaving.  Nothing but sweat pants and relaxation were in sight.

IMG_8794Day 57: And we’re off! Car is packed and we’re ready to head off to the north woods.

IMG_8832Day 58: Seriously this kid, love him, but he refused to nap ALL weekend.  It made me CRAZY!

IMG_8851Day 59: Last day in the north woods.  I could stare out this window all day long.

IMG_8915Day 60: Home again and in idiot mode watching the Oscars.

IMG_8926Day 61: While I love the Olympics, I was happy my shows were back on.  Thank you Apple TV for keeping all my shows in one place.

IMG_8960Day 62: National Pancake Day! Henry loves them

IMG_8968Day 63: Carol does the best art projects with the kids.  Each time they melt my heart.  This one is getting framed.

IMG_8973Day 64: Started reading this book earlier this week and cannot put it down.  Sadly, I have to when I start nodding off, but it’s definitely good so far

IMG_8995Day 65: For the first time since our year hiatus, we had family dinner again with the Cates.  Looking forward to starting this back up.

Day 66: Never fail, emotional distress gets me a speeding ticket.

IMG_9056Day 67: Henry’s working on nursing GRANDPA back to health

While the next few weeks and months will prove to be difficult for our family, I look forward to a bit of normalcy


#ZOOCREW2014 Days 40-46


Can I just say how thankful I am that this week is over?  Talk about busy, unexpected sickness and just chaos.  Happy to be moving on to a less busy time in our lives, wait….

IMG_8389Day 40: I was so happy to see this sweet package in the mail from my aunt via my Grandma.  I can’t wait to hang it outside Henry’s window so he can watch the hummingbirds.

IMG_8403Day 41: Henry’s valentines for all his friends at Carol’s. I was excited that I didn’t have to wait until Kindergarten for fun moments like this.

IMG_8421Day 42: The birthday party took on a whole new level at pone point this week.

IMG_8469Day 43: Our ‘little’ boy turned one on Thursday!!

IMG_8493Day 44: Party planning is EXHAUSTING! Seriously need a vacation after this

IMG_8522Day 45: Nothing like celebrating your first birthday with a little cash smash

IMG_8562Day 46:  After a crazy weekend it was nice to relax and be silly, just the three of us.

We actually have a pretty free week and weekend upon us.  I anticipate that will change.  Oh how I look forward to doing nothing, for a long time.

#ZOOCREW2014 Days 27-39


Time gets away and while I’ve managed to keep my picture a day series up, I’ve not been do great about documenting it via the blog.  Low and behold, the Olympics are on and I have more than a few minutes to get caught up.

IMG_8055DAY 27: This kid is a trip.  We had more fun putting the ‘c’ on his head and watching the confused look, than he did taking it off each time.

IMG_8090DAY 28: We have food day at McKinley on Wednesday’s.  Each grade or group is responsible for signing up for a day.  Tried this new chocolate buttercream recipe.  YUM, is all I have to say about that.

IMG_8109DAY 29: How cute is Henry and his new haircut?  Seriously, can he get any cuter.  He’s had more haircuts in his first year of life than I’ve had in his first year!

IMG_8111DAY 30: America the Beautiful.  Such a beautiful sky the morning after grandpa made his way to heaven.

IMG_8165DAY 31: Sometimes things get stressful and you just to drink, by yourself.

IMG_8188DAY 32: Henry LOVES to watch out the window when the guys come to plow.  I like to call this one “Hey Guys! It’s me Henry!”

IMG_8231DAY 33: Last weekend was a long one for all of us, especially Henry since he had his one year photo session.  Kid was EXHAUSTED come Sunday.

IMG_8250DAY 34: Friends first, family second! Love this girl.  Pretty sure I’d be locked in my closet crying, without her.

IMG_8262DAY 35: “Perk” to having a few unplanned days of work; breakfast with the bestie.  So sad she had to leave us after three weeks of on and off time with us.

IMG_8288DAY 36: Just another sneak peek into the big birthday bash this weekend.  I need a serious party planning intervention.  #stopthemadness

IMG_8293DAY 37: Starting making breakfast smoothies and I’m in love.  Getting fruits and veggies, all the while not being starved five minutes after finishing breakfast.

IMG_8344DAY 38: Typical Saturday running errands.  Grammy let Henry take over the cart.  Wonder how much he’d scan for 🙂

IMG_8382DAY 39: Celebrated my BIL’s birthday with these delicious cherry pie bars and root beer floats.  One bite and I took mine home for later.  Didn’t want to look like a fat kid having a float and a bar!

This week coming up is a BIG week.  We’re celebrating Henry’s 365 days of life.  I’ll probably end up crying all week.
