Day 1 Project Life

Camden has recently discovered these drawers in the kitchen. The only real surprise is that is has taken him this long.
The poor kid got into two fights... and lost. One with a balloon that was blown up too much and he received his first black eye. (thanks Daddy) Then he lost the other fight with Elvin and Elvin pushed him into a toy outside. But don't you worry. Camden is a tough guy. And he got even by sitting on Elvin's leg in the bathtub tonight. (Imagine an elephant sitting on an ant)
Oh the silence that these bring is so sweet and peaceful. The boys love them!
John has been working a LOT this week. And today, it was one of those days. Yep, its still 11am and my kids are not dressed. Yep, they are playing outside in their PJ's. Guess what folks, they were happy. And lets face it, it will probably happen again tomorrow.
Elvin did not want to be photographed today. But I got his legs! :)


I have updated my Whetten Photography & Design Blog. Go on over and check out its face lift! I added new pages that correspond with the event. Little by little folks, I am getting the hang of blogging. :) I have also added the Bingham's and Guzman's family photo shoots. Yay!

Project Life

I found this thing called Project Life. I love this idea. Although it is basically just another scrapbook at heart, this particular one is centered upon doing a week at a glance or month at a glance book. Really, its kind of like a journal. And me, being a horrible journal keeper (meaning I don't really keep one) I really liked this. I would do the digital version, but you get the idea. For a number of reasons I really want to do this.
1. To have a journal. We all know that its important and why. I don't think I really need to go into all the nuts and bolts of why.
2. It would help to inspire me to get out my camera more and practice my skills between photo shoots.
3. I like the idea of making it a "reasons to be happy and grateful". And taking a picture a day, or two a week, focusing on things that would fit into the aforementioned category. For example, something that the kids did, a frame, a special flower (the big pile of wilted dandelions that Elvin brings me in droves), but you get the idea. This could even be a separate book from the personal journal one.
4. It is already layed out. I already scrapbook. I make my own pages and it takes time. As this Project Life would be more journal oriented, I want to spend my time on the other things besides the layout and design aspect.
So there you go. There are a lot of other reasons, but these are the main ones. I also was inspired by THIS GIRL, Cierra Owens. She is a girl I just recently got to know a little better and she is a photographer too! She is doing something she calls "Project 365" and she takes a picture each day. I love this idea! But check her out.

Elvin's Tonsillectomy

He is doing pretty good. All things considered. He is a little trooper though. I have found that it is easiest when we distract him from the pain.
This was that night. We ended up having to stay the night. So Elvin got his new surprise toy early. He was trying to be excited about it, but he was so out of it.
This was after. My poor boy. He did pretty good though waking up from the anesthesia.
You can kind of see. Sorry. It was hard to get a good view.
This was just before they took him back.

Camden 11 Months

Camden loves to swing.
And unlike his older brother, he LOVES to eat.
And last but not least, he is walking. I cannot believe it. I guess he just wanted to keep up with Elvin. They are playing more and more together. And Elvin still likes to bully him. We are just waiting for the day when Camden will get even by sitting on him. :)

Aunt Leslie comes to town

Aunt Leslie, Jimmy, and Adrian came to visit for their spring break. We had so much fun with them. We love you guys!

My two lucky charms. I got these on sale at Old Navy.
