{mantooth 365} more February 2012

Just yesterday I started actually printing out some of my {mantooth 365} photos.  It feels so good to get them into the book.  I am loving how it is coming along. 
I have to say that this year I went pretty simple, with just the 4x6 photos and the journaling cards. 
The album and inside pages I got at the end of 2010 for the 2011 photos.  That didn't happen so I am using it for this year.
However now Becky Higgins has created some really awesome new inside pages for the albums. 
You can see a video on her blog HERE about all of the new pages they offer.
I am pretty excited for them for next year. I figured since I comepletly failed at this last year, it was better to start the project with a more simple version to actually get it done. 
Then next year I with the new pages I can add all the fun memorabelia stuff to go along with it, and maybe even make some fun week titles for each page as well like Nichol Magouirk does.

Now until then...
I will just continue to share my individual photos with the journaling.  

so here we go...
It snowed today. Nothing major that even sticked to the street but it still was snowing. Love it.

Happy 7th Birthday to our little Jacob today. We are headed to Las Vegas to take grandma and grandpa to the airport. So he got to open his presents first thing this morning. He got 2 nerf dart tag guns from mommy and daddy.

We decided to splurge for lunch today in Las Vegas. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe. It was seriously the BEST food ever. It was so much fun in there and such a cool place to eat lunch. I am so glad we got the chance to get away for a few days and spend some good family time together. Do we really have to go home tomorrow...

We ♥ Las Vegas. We stayed at Circus Circus which was so much fun. We had the greatest time playing in the carnival upstairs and the kids got to see the little circus show they put on too. It was a much needed mini vacation that didn't last long enough..

This is our dog Mickey. Hes a pain in the butt.

The kids were all out of school today so we went to Big Bear with Debbie and George and Jamie and Casey and all the kiddos. It was a nice drive and alot of fun. We had McDonalds for lunch up there and then headed home. We stopped a few times to play in the snow too.

I have yet to figure out how the kids ever even get clean with the amount of toys that are always with them in the bathtub. This isn't even as many as usual.

Crab tostadas. These are so good and we love them. I usually don't like fish type foods but I often crave these. They are so simple to make too.

This is our dog Minnie. She is pretty yappy. We got her for an inside dog, but she doesn't like to listen so she is now an outside dog.

Back to Las Vegas we went today. But only a turn around trip. We went to pick up grandma and grandpa from the airport. We stopped at state line and had dinner and I won $20.00 from a $5.00 bill I put into a machine on our way out.

Today was little Jacob's 7th birthday party. We did it in a monster theme in bright colors. I made these funny eyed chocolate cupcakes for the party.

Caleb is learning to dress himself. He NEVER gets matching socks. I used to make him change, but really this is SO Caleb.

The kids love to watch Netflix on my cell phone. Even though we have 3 tvs and 2 computers they can watch it on, they still like my phone, broken glass and all.

My view tonight as I cook dinner. I love when the kids play together without fighting.

Chloe loves to help me cook dinner. I really think its just the sitting on the counter that she likes, not the helping.
