This Everyday Love

Lately my photo of the day selections have not been anything too special. For example, Saturday’s photo is a picture of my clean living room. I am still working on Spring/Summer cleaning, and although I detest cleaning, there is really something to be said for having a super clean house. (This was taken with no flash. I’m practicing using natural lighting more.)


On Sunday, I walked into the kitchen after cleaning up in my bedroom and found this stuck to my refrigerator. The girls are fascinated with things that have magnets in them lately. I did not even know that the My Little Pony was magnetic, and honestly I can not say why it would be, but it made for an interesting photo. (Another one taken with natural light, although in hindsight it appears a bit blue toned.)


On Monday Ronnie was running late coming home from work, so the kids sat down to eat dinner before we did. Here is a photo of the three of them chowing down. They all love peanut butter sandwiches, and it is just about the only way Jordan (my little semi-vegetarian) will eat any protein. I did a little bit of editing on this one… not too much though.


The next photo needs a lot of explanation. Yesterday morning I let the kids play in the sprinkler before it got really hot. When it was time to come in, I got Brandon undressed and dried him off, then I sent him inside to wait for me. I dried Jordan off and walked into the kitchen to throw the dirty towel in the laundry hamper, and I found this. I grabbed my camera and snapped away. He was eating the rest of his dried cereal that he had asked to eat for breakfast. I could hardly take the photo because I was laughing so hard. Do not worry! I sanitized and scrubbed the table right after I got clothes on his crazy butt! (Edited within an inch of it’s life in PSE.) He is going to love this one when he is older don’t you think? LOL


We have not been up to much around here. Keeping three kids occupied is a pretty full time job! I have been scrapbooking of course, but my online time has taken a hit. I had to prioritize a lot, and decide what was most important. Not easy!

I have also been working on my guest design team work for the June Scrapperie kit. It is a gorgeous kit full of rich colors. I am so excited to reveal what I have done with it, but I can not until reveal day on the 14th. If you are interested, you can check out all of Sandi’s fantastic kits at

Until next time….

watch those magnets - they can ruin computers, tv's, and speakers. my husband is always preaching to my daughter and I about magnets and how dangerous they are. honestly I would never think twice about them if he hadn't told me. I guess they can zap the memory on computers and break other electronics if they are strong enough. just thought I would share since your kids are going thru that phase of facsination.

I like the way you tucked the date on the chair that's a nice touch, and Brandon on the table! What a lad you have. Great catch with the camera, they outgrow this time so fast.

I have one of those magnetic My Little Ponies! I love keeping it sideways on my fridge! Look so silly. :p And I think it's magnetic because of the play centers... like the houses and stuff that go with the Ponies. The magnets make stuff move and stuff! LOL. :D
