2012 Blue Jeans Week 37

A couple more 'things' that we love now and lots of volleyball for our pictures this week.  It is finally beginning to feel a little like fall, and we are so grateful!    
This is a picture of a few of the shelves in Miss O and Miss E's room.  They share a room.  They have their Harry Potter Lego display and then below that is Miss O's shelf of favorite books with her uncle's poptropica toys.  A few of her favorite things. . .

Lots of volleyball games this week for Miss O #26.  She is doing awesome on her serves. Yeah!

Sept 11--we will never forget

A got a picture of a few of Mr J's shelves in his room.  Cars and trains, trains and cars, and legos that make trains and cars.  Life is good as a 7 year old boy :)

More volleyball games this week. . . Miss O served for 10 points!  yeah!

Miss A is on the HS cross country team, and to make money for the team, they man carnival games and a picnic for a local factory and their employees.  The team needed lots of helpers, so Ben and I volunteered with some other parents and all the CC runners to man the picnic and carnival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Ben and another dad ended up grilling over 800 hot dogs, boy did he smell good after that :)  but the team got plenty of money, and we don't have to wash cars or sell things people don't want :)  It was a long day, but worth it.  

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great week!

  1. Funny you should take pictures of book shelves. I'm in the process of going through ours to weed out what they have outgrown and make room for current favorites. It's hard to get rid of the books from the younger years. Sounds like great volleyball days. It's important to be a good server. We have to help out in the snack bar for HS sports. My first shift is Thursday--joy! You had a good week.

  2. Love the pictures of the shelves. It's wonderful to remember all the treasures kids display. I wish I had a shelf for Harry Potter Legos...and the new Lord of the Rings Legos.

  3. That's a lovely photo in memory of September 11...
    Thanks for sharing these shots with us Jen.

  4. Love the 9/11 shot & the words. Such an important day for us all to take at least a moment & remember.

  5. Darling shelves! My boys were fascinated with the pictures :)
