365: Week Two

I have really enjoyed getting out and taking pictures this week.  It was quite a busy one so taking a break to take a few pictures of the things that we've been doing was a welcome distraction.  And so the trail continues

Day 12

Jan 12th.  This is my TV.  With the power off.

Day 13

Jan 13th.   The icicles that hung down from my mom's roof began to melt creating the most lovely little puddle that caught the drips from the slowly shrinking ice.

Day 14

Jan 14th.  This is what happens when Kira wanted to play target practice with the squirt bottle.  Please ignore the dust, I do.

Day 15

Jan 15th.  My very good friend Mimi sent me this essential oil that smells like bottled Christmas.  It's wonderful!  It took a little longer than we both expected, arriving on Friday.  After seeing the package I am impressed that UPS found me at all.  Hurray for Brown!  I love it Mimi!  Thank you!

Day 16

Jan 16th.  Flowers from my husband.  Aren't they beautiful, I love gerbera daisies.  They are my absolute favorite.

Day 17

Jan 17th.  Nothing compares to the thrill of sleeping on the hard floor with nothing but a pillow and a blanket.  And of course Grandma usually makes pancakes in the morning.  Yay, for sleepovers!  Did I mention that I slept in?

Day 18

Jan 18th.  A trip to the dentist is the best when they make you a cute little poodle to bring home.  But the 7 cavities between the two of them wasn't so fun.

Day 19

Jan 19th.  Kira is taking her 5th year of dancing.  She has graduated to the barr this year, she is so excited for the day that she gets to start pointe.  She is so graceful when she puts her mind to it.
 She just moves like a ballerina.

Day 20

Jan 20th.  The crap craft that I get myself into.  These were the handmade tissue paper flowers that I made for a formal etiquette dinner that we held for all the young girls at my church.  It was a ton of fun, so I think I may do a post on it later this week.

Day 21

Jan 21st.  Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.  But will it ever stop?

OH.MY.GOSH! That is a LOT of snow! WOW! (it does look pretty though!)

LOVE the ballet photo and those flowers you made with tissue paper are adorable!

Thanks so much for stopping by my photo blog :)

ps The photo in your header is making my mouth water!

Chris said...

Woohoo! Nice pictures! Your puddle IS lovely. The toilet paper is much too familiar.

Your husband gives you flowers? He's a quality individual indeed :)

I love the mirror image on the ballet shot -- great perspective!

Emmy said...

I was afraid the toilet paper got wet another way :)
7 cavities! I can't even imagine.. my son hates the dentist and screams and cries when they are just cleaning his teeth. He does great brushing at home.. so I don't know what his deal is.

Mimi said...

Fabulous pictures, Heidi.
You are such a creative person! The paper flowers are just lovely, I can see that how the top is open on the oil bottle, so not surprised it spilled, miracle that there's any left and also that it found you (hurray for UPS!), and your little ballerina is just so wonderful.
I'm thoroughly enjoying your 365!

funny how I didn't see that puddle in front of my house--all I saw was mud. Kira looks sweet, did her teacher let you watch that day. The sleepover was tons of fun and the flowers did look nice. You are so creative.

I love those tissue paper flowers and the flower your husband brought you!

Now I know the answer to my previous question. Love the idea of the etiquette dinner. But they REALLY, REALLY need one for boys too!

Gerberas are my fav too!
