Our Week in Instagram

It is that time again!

Our Week in Instagram, all of my personal favorite pictures from my Instagram account this week. But unlike weeks before, there is a cool new way people can check out photos on Instagram without being a member or even owning a smartphone!

There are actual Instagram profiles now! My is linked up here, feel free to check it out.

This past week we did some fun stuff and had a big historical event. The Presidential election. I brought my kids with me to the polls to vote, and my oldest son was the most interested in the process by far. I think it is because he also talked about it at school. Ben and Addison just wanted to touch stuff they really shouldn’t have been. I felt like a ninja voting.

We also had a snow storm, the first week of November. I am kind of worried as to how much school we will miss this winter if we are getting started this early!

    Dye Time
    I dyed my hair. I had left over manic panic in my hair from the summer time that I just had to get out! I feel refreshed to say the least!

    We Voted
    On election day we hit the polls as a family. My oldest son was really interested in learning. Addison, not so much.

    Addison was enjoying a blueberry donut in the car, until she fell asleep. With the donut in her hand. I think its the cutest thing ever.
  • Re-Election 5 of 14
    I stayed up, late. Watching all the news coverage of the election and was proud to be part of the election process.

    We took the kids to visit with their late Uncle. We try and bring them as much as we can to keep his memory alive.

    Then it Snowed
    October snowstorm last year. This year we had a November snow storm that kept the kids out of school after Sandy closed the school district for an entire week, the previous week. I was not ready for all that! But it was pretty!

    Toddlers Vs. Cat
    The cat lost, toddlers won, and Legos were the method of torture. "You can cover me in LEGOS! But you cannot take my remote!"

    Oh Just a Clean Desk
    My desk... well, it ends up covered in everything from kids stuff, to papers, mail... you name it and it ends up on my desk. I took some time to clean and re-organize this week and it re-charged me completely.

    I brought the kids for our first frozen yogurt bar experience this weekend. We got all kinds of stuff. Mostly fruit, and shared it. They loved it!

    I can't believe my baby boy is almost a big boy. Ben is three, and will be four next May, but every day that goes by, he is just... so grown up. I love this picture.
    "Mommy, Lets take a nice picture"

    Veteran's Day
    Veteran's day was not a holiday in our school district this year, but they did celebrate in school with activities and a school program in the afternoon. I loved having my oldest come home with this.

    Long Lost Etsy
    I bought this on Etsy years ago. It was my very first Etsy purchase, and I adored the artist. Everything he made was 100% hand drawn and handmade. Sadly, before I could grow my collection, he passed away unexpectedly and his family closed up his Etsy store. TR Mack Studios will always be one of my favorites!

    My Dad... In the Navy... In the 1970's
    Last night I came across a stack of old photos of my dad. Some were of him in the Navy so I thought it would be fitting to share on Veteran's day. Well apparently, my Dad looks like Brad Pitt? At least that is what a ton of my friends on facebook, and Instagram said. I was kinda shocked by all the cat calls! I love my Dad!
