Twelve on Twelve

Yesterday I took my 12 on 12 challenge.
It seems that lately I really need to push myself to get something done. Knowing that if I blogged about the 12 on 12 challenge then the chances of me doing it would be much better… otherwise I would have you guys to answer to. ; )
The pictures I chose to take were more about what my kids do then what I do but that doesn’t really make sense because we all do it together. But what I am trying to say is it’s more about them than me… isn’t that what being a mom is about anyway? The above picture is some hot chocolate that Quincey made me. Which really was luke warm and watered down. Don’t be jealous that you didn’t get to pretend drink it for a while. She apparently liked hers.


These two are best buds. That “puppy” I got Collin for his birthday? Yeah, he won’t stop growing. ; )


Working on my December Daily album with my little elf. I’ve never done any pre-work but thought I would give it a try. I usually just enjoy making it as I go but this will help streamline the process. I am using an AC Handbook, SC Wonderland inserts, Crate goodies & wood shapes.

My favorite lipsticks right now: MAC So Chaud (a bold orangish red) and Impassioned (a perky pink) Some days when that’s all the make up that graces my face I feel a touch more like a woman and not a dead mommy.


This is one of my favorite parts of the day. Man, I miss her during the day!! Kindergarten was only half day… just enough time to take a shower or throw in some laundry. But a whole day is looong. She still thinks I’m cool so I try to visit her once a week for lunch or a quick squeeze during recess.


This picture pretty much hurts my heart but I have 3 girls… 4 including me so there’s a bit of drama in our home!! Lola is generally such a cheerful sprout but she has her moments. Yesterday it was something tragic like I opened her yogurt when she wanted to do it… xoxo


The window sill above the kitchen sink… pretty much stare at this all day long.


Homework time with Dad


Yes I gave in and put the pink Christmas tree up. The snow made me do it. I swear, it’s not my fault!!!

Such a pretty glow though…

Happy day!! xo, Lizzy

    I absolutely adore the photos of your homelife and your little girls. I am not a mom but I do have a surrogate child in my 8 year old niece. Little children’s hands and feet and necks are just so irresistable. I especially love the photo of Lola sitting with her back to the camera. Her little toes are just adorable!

    Lola is adorable…wish I had thought of taking a photo of the times mine were upset with the cup I chose to put their drink in :) I get into so much trouble over cup colours and we’re not aloud kiddy spoons anymore when we are 7 … incase you’re takin’ notes ;)
    So what’s 12 on 12? I missed what that is?
    Hope you are feelin’ fabulous. :)

    First of all I love all the girls hair! Whether it is a mess or a neat top knot. And the sunglasses on Avery’s head during homework is just so diva! What is the puppy’s name? Is it really that crazy name Collin posted on FB? I hope Cleetus will give us a Xmas greating or a Thanksgiving re-cap. Miss him.

    THANK you for such a nice perk of the day!!!!! Your pics are darling, your new scraproom is to die for, your hot cocoa looked amazing exspecially since your little beauty made it for you (how prescious) watered down or NOT:) My little lady is 18 WHERE or where did all the time go. At college only see her when she comes home on the weekends:( SO enjoy, they grow up real fast. OH and two more things, the lipstick is awesome and that puppy OH MY he has grown…wow. Does he shed:(?
