week 20 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans


I've accepted Carin's challenge, as a Mom, to get back into the picture. The idea is that once a week you take a picture of yourself with one or more of your children. It's that simple. If you'd like you can post your picture on your blog. You can let me know you posted so I can check out your pics. You can check out my previous weeks or Click the button to add your name to the Mr. Linky. So, have fun!

This week there seem to be some profile views. I figure you are probably getting sick of looking at my face by now anyway!

In this first one we are cleaning "The King" in preparation for spending a lot of time in there on vacation. While we were at it we gave "Doc" and Allen's car a good vacuum and shampoo, too. I showed Samuel how to buff out wax.

And this was Monday when Kaitlin and I spent all day trying to perfect a scallop detail on her sewing project. We designed it ourselves so don't have an actual pattern to work with. It took some time but we had fun trying and I think she was happy with the results.


And this is a picture that Allen snuck in while Elisabeth and I were weeding the gardens Tuesday morning.

  2. What fun pictures! I wished I knew how to sew...my mom sews, but I never learned more than with a needle and thread to mend!

  11. Kat,

    That just reminds me that I need to fertilize our roses and weed our gardens as well. Lately with triple digit temps and smoke, no one has been in the mood to go outside.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  17. You look like you have very busy days! Sometimes I feel like I can't ever quite accomplish things...but I think if I took pictures of all of the things that I do in a day I might feel a little better. :)
    Sorry it has been so long since I commented. I do love looking at your blog.
    PS Chris and I did have a lovely trip to Steamboat and the kids did great.

  18. I didn't participate this week since I am time-challenged - or just so unorganized I can't get to the things I want to do! But still dropping by to see what I missed :) What a full week you had with car detailing, sewing and gardening!.... have a great vacation!

    Have a nice holiday,
