Project 365 - Days 24-31

 Day 24 -  Kylie wanted me to take a picture of her and her pink bear on the rocking chair.  

Day 25 - We celebrated a co-workers birthday where I work.
Day 26 - This is the view if you stand outside my door and look to the west.  I took this picture early in the morning.  I thought the sky looked really cool.
Day 27 - It was a little chilly as we were getting ready to leave for the morning.  Kylie wanted me to wrap her up in a blanket.  Of course, chilly in San Diego is like 45 degrees, LOL.
 Day 28 - I was on my way to go pick up Kylie after work and as I was stopped at this intersection, I noticed the moon was visible and I thought it was a cool picture with the flag in the foreground.

 Day 29 - Kylie does not wear glasses, but she does have a pair that she uses for dress up.
 Day 30 - I am now on book 3 of the Twilight saga and I am hooked!
 Day 31 - This is the angel that hangs on the wall near my front door.

Project 365 - Week 3 Layout

I am on a roll!! I am having so much fun taking my photos and creating the layouts. I can not wait til the end of the year!! I will have a complete year in pictures, as long as I keep it up, :)

Project 365 - Layout Week 2

I decided to go with a more simple layout and I will probably redo week one to match.  This makes it easy to have everything coordinate and it's much faster to put together, :)

Project 365 - Days 18-23

Day 18 - Pat with some of his buddies that got out of the Marines a few years ago and one who is still in and working on the V-22.  John, Max, Charlie, Pat and Kylie

Day 19 - Self portrait

Day 20 - Heidi, our Jack Russell Terrier, "sitting pretty" as we like to call it.

Day 21 - I gave up drinking soda, mainly because of the carbonation, not so much the sugar, so now, when I need something sweet, it's sweet tea, preferably Chick-Fil-A, :)

Day 22 - I have been carrying my "point and shoot" camera with me, just in case I see something interesting and I saw this "HUGE" cloud rising over San Diego.  It was to the east and most of the rain had passed us that day, but it was not your typical San Diego sky.   I wish I could have had a better angle, but I was in my truck and stopped at the light, so this was the best I could do.

Day 23 - My lovely black eye.  No one punched me, but I did have a fight with a booster seat.  I was picking Kylie up from her grandparents, we always have to transfer the seats, I was carrying her booster seat down the hill to put it in my truck.  It still has the back part attached and it "unhinged" and was hanging straight down, so to get it back to the "L" position, I swung it forward, hoping the seat would latch in to place.  I used more force than I intended because the seat was above my head and to the front of me, I grabbed with my other hand as quick as I could, but wasn't fast enough, down comes the upper portion of the seat back right on my cheekbone.  I instantly felt it swelling up.  At this point, I just wanted to get back to our house.  I put ice on it when I got home, but this is how it looked the next morning I woke up.  I hope it doesn't last too long!!

Project 365 - Days 13-17

Day 13 - Kylie thought she would surprise me by trying to hide among the coats on the coat rack, but as she popped out, I had my camera ready!

 Day 14 - Kylie found my BIG sunglasses and was playing around with them, she wanted me to take some pics of her posing with them.

Day 15 - Today was pajama day at school for Kylie, and as usual, she had me take a picture, it's a good thing for me that she enjoys having her picture taken and she really knows how to ham it up too.

Day 16 - Pat and his big boy toy.   I bought him a remote control helicopter for his birthday, because that is what he said he wanted.

Day 17 - Kylie was "singing" and putting on a show for us.

Project 365 - Days 8-12

Day 8 - Pat will be gone during the week up until the end of February, so he was getting some play time in with Kylie.

Day 9 - Emily made these cute little penguin appetizers for my niece Jillian's birthday party.  There were so cute and tasted great!

Day 10 -  I took a picture of my "space" at work.  I use three different microscopes, the far left is my compound light microscope for identifying mold spores, the one to the right of my computer is my polarized light microscope used to identify asbestos fibers, and the scope under the hood at the far end is my stereoscope.

 Day 11 -   I used the Grab application on my Macbook to capture the image of one my favorite digital scrapbook site, you may also notice the tab for my other addiction, facebook, :)

Day 12 - My keys!!  Once a Marine, always a Marine, and my keychains reflect that.  Whenever I think things are bad, I just remember what basic training was like and realize that it just isn't all that bad, if I can make it through that, I can make it through anything!!

Project 365 - Days 4-6

Day 4 - Kylie is on this "cleaning" kick, she has a spray bottle with water and she grabs a dish towel and helps me clean.  Oh, I hope she likes to do this when she is older!!

Day 5  - I decided I would take a picture of my "crabs", LOL, yes, we have hermit crabs as pets.  It started out with one we bought last July while camping in Delaware, and now we have three.  One of the crabs is under the sand, I think he/she may be molting, but the one in this picture is named "Shelly", Kylie gave them their names, :)

Day 6 - Here is our biggest crab, Rocky!  This is the first one we bought and I am happy to show him off, because he had a successful molt.   Most people assume hermit crabs are easy to take care of, but they require alot more than just a tiny container.  More on that another day, LOL!!

January 2 - We went up to Palomar Mountain and spent the night in a cabin for rent.  The kids decided to make a slide indoors.
