#CatchTheMoment365; Week 47

post-day326-nov22.png

Checkout that date. December 4, 2014. D.E.C.E.M.B.E.R. The 12th Month of the Year.

I love December, it’s the best month of the year, well after August!  I love all the decorations, festivities, time with friends & family, music, remembering Christ, and the presents aren’t that bad either! But before that I have a crazy December ahead of me.

I will be working 60+ hour weeks for the next couple during the busiest time of the year at Eastside Baby Corner.  One of my biggest jobs is coordinating collection drives and 80% of them care delivered in December.  Actually let me rephrase that, 80% of them come in on one day and this year that date is December 18th, the last day we accept donations for 2014.  On top of that we have to do a full inventory of our 8,000 +/- square foot warehouse which always brings out the best in me.  And this year I’m helping the local food bank during their holiday giving program.  Work during December is going to be insane, but before I know it it will be gone, Christmas will be over and we will be waking up in 2015 and that is crazy talk!

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 46

post-day321-nov17_thumb.png

Look at this, I am posting week 46 during week 46!  Yay!

Week 46 included The March of Dimes’ World Prematurity Day on November 17th.  Over the past several years I have participated as a blogger for the event, but this year I wasn’t able to join in.  However, I made sure I participated on Twitter and my picture of the day was four, well eight, of the closest preemies to me.  If you want to read more about these preemies and their stories check out the links below:

Each one of these preemies left a lasting impression on me and my heart.  It’s amazing to see how such fragile babies can grow up to me such strong and amazing little people!  These are some amazing success stories and I love each one of them!

Hey look, two #CatchTheMoment 365 posts in 48 hours! I told you I was determined to get caught up!  The positive is I am almost caught up (just need to post the current week’s post up), the downside is nothing new has happened to chat about here

Lucky for you, my big mouth doesn’t have much to say tonight! Oooohhhh, actually one cool thing that happened this week – we hit day 300 in this challenge!  Yes, day 300!  Take that Kim Alvarado, I made it to day 300!

Here’s what week 43 looked like in my life ….

Pumpkin Poop

DSC_0004.jpg

or more commonly known as pumpkin guts!

Sweet Emmalee was excited to scoop out the Pumpkin Poop tonight when they came over to carve pumpkins!

I think this was the first year that the girls actually partook in the actual pumpkin carving process.  In the past they have enjoyed the idea of scooping out the “pumpkin poop” and carving the pumpkin, but once the tops were cut off the pumpkin and they looked inside they quickly changed their minds!  Chickens!

2014 was a whole new year for them.  This year they were all in!  The both scooped their pumpkins and then assisted in the carving of them!

Emmalee chose to draw a face on her pumpkin and Brandi carved it out, while Maddie & I each picked a pattern off the internet and carved them.  In the end I think all three turned out pretty darn well!

Mason didn’t help, but did enjoy emptying out my mom’s linen napkin drawer, throwing the napkin rings all over the kitchens and watching them roll across the floor!  He did join in for a couple of photos on the front porch after they were done.

Pumpkins from left to right: Maddie’s witch, my owl and Emmalee’s queen!

Every loved the final products, especially the girls when we lit the candles and turned off the lights!  Mason enjoyed the pumpkins until we turned the lights out and then he panicked.

I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and DRY Halloween!

#CatchTheMoment365 ~ Week 39

post-day274-oct1.png

Well, I’m chuggin’ right along trying to get all caught up.  Who cares that we are currently in week 41?  I continue to plug along and still haven’t missed a photo yet!  Slowly but surely I will get caught up!

For those of you who read about my last blog post, I’m excited to announce that the event brought in over $18,000 in donations!  That money will be cherished and allow Eastside Baby Corner to purchase more car seats, diapers, Pack ‘N Plays, formula and much more for kids in need living in King County Washington.  I’m so honored to be a small piece of this amazing organization!

Week 39 was another great one for me!  Here’s what I did that week…

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 35

post-day242-aug30_thumb.png

I had to do a double look when I typed Week 35.  How are we already through Week 35?  Well technically now Week 36 since I’m behind (again).  September is here and summer is coming to an end.  Crazy.  Absolutely crazy!

Week 35 was a fun one.  I took another trip to Eastern Washington to visit my Grandma.  Brandi, Jaime and the kids all came too so it was a lot of fun!  The rest of the week involved preparing for my big work Pants Party which was happening the following Saturday.  Between Kennewick and Pants Party my week was extremely busy!

Ooohhhh and my sweet niece Emmalee started Kindergarten….that’s almost crazier than it being September and Week 35!

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 31

post-day-215-august3_thumb.png

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind for me and my blogging took a backseat.  My Grandma passed away on August 7th after a long and courageous battle with cancer, leaving behind an amazing legacy and memories.

With the passing of my Grandma, an unexpected trip to Salt Lake City and her funeral, Week 31 never got written or published, actually at this point I’m late with Week 32 as well.  Family is much more important than my blog, but while I am delayed publishing Week 31 and 32, I didn’t miss a day of photos.  Stay tuned over the next couple of days for another catch-up post plus Week 33.

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 25

20140627-225028-82228606.jpg

Week 25 brought beautiful weather with lots of outside fun!  A trip to Safeco Field, a small hike, daily walks and sno-cones.  I love summer!  However, after several weeks of gorgeous weather today the weather began to flip and is supposed to rain all weekend.  My light at the end of the tunnel is I leave for Las Vegas on Friday morning for the long holiday weekend!  Bring on more summer fun!
