2013 Blue Jeans Week 1

I am continuing my work of documenting our lives with one picture a day.  This starts my 5th year doing this.  I use Becky Higgins' products to help me do this.  This year I am using the Clementine edition of Project Life. I got it for Christmas :)  So these are my pictures from last week--the last two days of 2012 and the beginning of 2013--our year of Gratitude.

Sunday:  Mr J and Miss E got lots of cool Lego sets for Christmas.  They spent Sunday afternoon with Ben getting them built.  Legos are so awesome!

Monday:  Our rip-roaring New Year's Eve bash :)  We went to my parents' earlier for delicious homemade Chinese/Japanese food, and then came home, watched a movie, did a puzzle and tried to stay awake until midnight.  Miss A didn't make it.  She is asleep behind Ben on the couch.   Happy New Year!

Tuesday:  New Year's Day we spent putting all the Christmas stuff away.  What a chore!  Love getting it out, but by now I am sick of it and ready to have my house back to normal!

Wednesday:  We started our 2013 Blessings Books today because for our family 2013 is the year of Gratitude.  More about that here.

Thursday:  Mr J wanted his room rearranged.  He had a plan of exactly how he wanted it.  We weren't too sure about it, but it actually left him with more floor space which is what he wanted--more room for train tracks!

Friday:  Miss E enjoying her break and enjoying her book.  She is reading the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage.

Saturday:  One thing Santa left us was a new basketball standard.  The kids were super excited, and despite the cold have used it quite a bit already.  Mr J loves that it is adjustable.  

Thanks for visiting!  Hope your new year is going great!  Come back and visit often!!


  1. Looks like a fun relaxing week--except for the packing up of Christmas stuff. I hate that chore too. I don't think I knew your kids' actually names until now. Kind of funny to think about. They all have lovely names. You know we love Legos too. I seriously should own stock. Our whole upstairs is like a Lego museum up there. and we are running out of room. They worst part is keeping them dusted!

  2. Looks like a great first week! Those blessing journals are wonderful.

  3. I have clementine too - love it!! :) Happy New Year Jen!!

  4. I feel the same way about Christmas decorations - it's wonderful to get them out and I'm so excited to put them away. Love seeing my house again :)

    We NEVER make it to midnight anymore. We try - but it just doesn't happen. Kudos to you guys!
