My Week(60) in iPhone Photos

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

I might as well skip this considering how VERY VERY LATE it is, but 60 is such a nice even number I’m just going to go with it. Plus I don’t have the energy to recap all of last week with real words, so pictures and captions will have to do.


E entertained the kids while I considered dying from exhaustion, a sore throat and a cough

Wonderful surprise cup coozie from my friend @emilybilbrey

This is what packing and cleaning the house looks like when you're sick - Twitter & football


Cookies for breakfast?! It must be someone's birthday!!

The kids LOVE my Understanding Exposure photography book

Even though we did NOTHING all day, she was happy to be ONE!


Totally entranced by this stupid toy at the car repair place

This is in front of the post office, a few days before Christmas. Our town is kind of sad.



Woke the kids up at o'dark thirty to get on the road

Playing with his Aunt Carolyn, who lives in Africa so we NEVER see her



Jam and bread? Don't mind if I do!

I ate so many waffle fries I didn't even have room for a peppermint milkshake. TRAGIC.

Helping Carolyn pick out a new (old)(really really old) camera

Puking toddler landed us in the ER at 8 pm because the doctor was worried about dehydration. Thank goodness for Zofran.


Vintage trains & Legos

Watcha doin' Caroline? Oh just hanging out.

Still recovering


Forced festiveness at Reston Town Center

At least WE liked ice skating

This is how you juggle two napless kids so your wife can chat with her friends

Santa came!

I think I am finally over my cold/respiratory infection and Little Evan hasn’t thrown up in a couple of days (although he did ask for medicine for his hurt tummy a couple times) so MAAAAAAYBE we will get to enjoy a few days of relaxing family time while E is off of work. Of course there are also a zillion decorations to put away, two fridges to clean, a mountain of laundry and way too many new toys to find homes for, so “relaxing” is a relative term. At least I can check my week in iPhone photos wrap up off my list!


My Week(58) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Also known as the week my iPhone died, came back to life, died again, started working EXCEPT for the camera and then died. I suspect Caroline had something to do with it, but there’s no visible damage and I tried the dry-it-out with rice trick without success. I was going to get a new phone in January anyways, but I’m kind of annoyed I won’t be able to give the toddler the old one (deactivated) as an iPod touch for his apps & junk. I’m MORE annoyed that after more than a year of daily photos I missed half of this week. The good news is my iPhone photos are VASTLY improved thanks to the new phone!


Candy cane sugar cookies for Caroline's party...except I ate them all. Oops.

This game is called "squish the baby".

This game is called grab the baby with your legs. She gets pushed around a lot but she's really tough.


Who is this big girl?!

This is considered a really bad traffic jam in my town.

Crafting! So messy!

Mommy's crafting mess is even bigger.


The baby gate makes it petting the kitty like going to a zoo!

True fact: I'm going to just throw this whole mess in boxes and hide it in the basement for the party.

Sibling loves

Missing: Wednesday, Thursday



SERIOUSLY, SO CRISP AND BRIGHT! (Caroline's first year book from Shutterfly)


E is not as excited about the new phone as I am


At the 7th circle of hell aka Walmart for Ball jars and Dr. Seuss

Closeup baby is CLOSE

Practicing my DIY snowglobe project. That animal is actually a baby cow from a Toob.

It turns out that piping melted chocolate into fancy gorgeous snowflakes is a LOT HARDER than the internet makes it look. Shocking, I know.

 I suspect next week’s photos will all be of cookies. I’ve got so much to do before Caroline’s party – luckily cookies can be frozen so I’m not trying to do ALL my baking on Saturday.

Did you take any camera phone photos this week? Link up with one or lots using the linky below and grab the code (so it shows on your blog too!) over at Amy’s . It’s really fun!

Thankful Day 13: Tea & Cookies

Yep. That’s about all I’ve got today.


My Week (51) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Despite the fact that this WASN’T a typical week (hellooooooo single parenting) it was about as typical as any of our weeks are. Stroller Strides, playground, errands, cooking, lots of sleeping babies. But we survived and had fun and no one’s eyes rotted out because of too much Nick Jr. or starved to death because all they ate was Goldfish crackers.


Yes, Hello, We will buy ALL the pumpkins.

The portabello mushrooms were really just a goat-cheese-face-delivery device.

Late night toddler party


I ruined a beautiful morning by exercising.

Playdough playgroup

It is a universal truth that water from a faucet tastes better than water from a cup.


Does this LOOK like the face of someone being naughty?

I refuse to let him even try the big kid swings. He's not allowed to not need me!

Bebeh toes



So close, yet so far away. Victims of a cruel mother.

Dreaming of a quiet bath of his own


No YOU were just dancing to the Olivia theme song

She loves this book.

Riding dirty (on the side of the shopping cart).


Too busy playing dollhouse to get dressed.

I like this.

Fine, if you won't let me eat those Oreos you snuck into your cart I'll eat my shoe.


My husband brought me a nice healthy salad for lunch...

...and then I went shopping for CARBS AND MEAT. Caaaaaarbs.

Caroline says "Gimme the boobs or I'll pop a cap in you, Mama".

The coming week is going to be ALL CRAFTING ALL KNITTING ALL BAKING ALL HALLOWEEN ALL CLEANING ALL THE TIME. It’s E’s last week before he starts design school (spoken lots of time out of town in a hotel) and I have a Halloween party that miiiiight have gotten a little out of hand to prepare for. It’s going to be super fun (and super bad for my diet) and if you’re reading this you should definitely come too. I’m forcing my whole family to wear Halloween costumes. Come back on October 31st for some EPIC pictures.

p.s. I’m also probably maybe sort of thinking about upgrading my iPhone so these weekly roundups aren’t such a blurry mess. I think that would be a good way to end my FULL YEAR of iPhone photos.

My Week(50) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Despite Caroline starting the week with a 103+ degree fever, we held things together pretty well. Since she never developed any other symptoms, I’m pretty sure it was due to the FOUR teeth that are trying to break through and making her miserable and sleepless, but we skipped Stroller Strides on Monday just to make sure. Then to make up for skipping we went ALL THE OTHER DAYS. I’m exhausted.


That's my favorite part of a workout too.

We stopped at a yard sale where I bought NONE of these things. I actually own that white tray in the front and mine is in better condition.

Sleepy baby

It looks like all I buy is junk, but I promise the fruits and veggies are under the soda


I made a rookie mistake and left a tube of vaseline within reach of the toddler while I put Caroline down for a nap. SHINY!


6 pm - still in our jammies, playing angry birds


I knit a cowl. I hate it. I ripped it out again.

Evan INSISTED on wearing his sandals with his socks. Maybe he thinks he's European.

Last pick up at our CSA

Whoa, check out my HANDS, MAN. They're so BIG.


I was late for Stroller Strides because I was stuck on a 2 lane road while a pilgrim unloaded 40 kids from a school bus. New England is weird.

Handsome little man

I can't even stand it. WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BABY?

"Hey I found this in Mom's purse. Check it out." "Nope, no money in here. Guess we won't be running away today." "But she's buying BRUSSELS SPROUTS!"


So big!

Mama, I PUSH IT!

Halloween yarn wreath from @babybabylemon


The line for the new iPhone at the mall. I resisted the urge to join them.


Modesty bubbles


Up with the baby. Again.

"Mom, mom, mom, mom, mama, mom, mom, mom, mommy, mom, mom, mom, mom,mom!" "WHAT?!?!" "......Hi."

No watch news, OK, mama? Watch TV! No news. Okay.

Entrelac. It's interestesting, but not very fast.

 The entire plan for today is to knit and to eat things, maybe with a nap thrown in for fun. If I get really ambitious we might go for a stroll this afternoon but only because then I can pretend I’m wearing sweat pants for a workout instead of just because I’m lazy. Tomorrow’s plan is exactly the same. Yah weekends!
