ten on ten :: December 2014

Ten photos over ten hours today (the tenth) capturing beauty in the ordinary:
All is Calm...
 merry and bright
 late drop off
 Christmas cheer while folding laundry. :) 
(catching up from having had a broken dryer last week.)
Coffee break. Always coffee.
"I made surprises for you today in class. Five of them...for Christmas!!"
Tic-Tac-Toe while waiting on after school steak-n-shake snack.
home sweet home
 straight to homework
 what's for dinner :: comfort food

Happy tenth. December is going quick! The kids are counting down the days
and getting SO excited for Christmas.
Our day today was a normal school day with
all but one making it out the door on time...
our middle schooler needed a bit more time!
Lot's of extra laundry for me in between the school drop off/pick up.
Finishing our day with a promised play date for our two littlest
ones at the next door neighbors while our oldest two have homework.

Hope you had a good tenth
and a Merry Christmas.



November :: 2014 :: ten on ten

 Today capturing the beauty in the ordinary (a link up) with ten photos over ten hours...

morning dog, Hershey, cozy on the floor
(it's cold outside!)
 drinking hubs left overs
 it's sheet changing day!
sweet blue eyed girl, with a miserable cold, hardly slept last night 
heading to get the school kids
(minus our oldest who is taking himself to physical therapy)
 after school gaming
 homework girl and ipad boy
 (then outside playtime before the sun goes down!)
crutch fixing
sunset tree climbing
 bringing the kids in for dinner + a neighbor friend joining us (fun!)

Happy tenth of November.

Monday is cleaning day around here.
 It was a bit slow going
today as girlie was up for a good
portion of the night sleeping off and on by my side
with a miserable cold.
By mid afternoon, after resting most of the morning, she 
was good to go! 
We were especially excited to have some nicer
after school weather to play outside 
especially as the colder weather will be here by the
end of the week.

Hope you had a nice tenth!


ten on ten :: September 2014

ten photo's over ten hours capturing today's beauty:

 morning sky
 coffee and a cookbook
 peanut butter toast (not cut in half!) loving girl 
pausing and answering text(s) 
grocery store prep
 after school Children's Museum while brothers are at practices
post soccer pick up (he got braces a few weeks ago!)
 carrying in (dry goods) groceries
brother earned a new lego set
and what's for dinner; Amish casserole and tater tots

Happy tenth of September.
Today started for me with a repair man ringing my doorbell at 7 a.m. while I 
was working on getting the boys out the door for school. 
I had completely forgotten he had moved his appointment from Friday to today 
yesterday afternoon...
It was a quiet rainy morning for girlie and I as she worked
on her school and I taught a bit mixed in with making
a much needed grocery list.
Then we surprised brother picking him
 up a bit early from school 
to take a little field trip to the Children's Museum.
While we were there I got the panic
phone call from our middle one as school had just 
let out and he realized his soccer bag was left in the car!
I told him I'd text his brother while he should go wait by the car for
five minutes. After five minutes if his brother didn't show he needed to wear 
his P.E. uniform and head to practice. It all worked out in the end as 
it nearly always does. :)



10 on 10 :: July 2014

Happy Friday! Yesterday was ten on ten; ten photos over ten hours capturing the beauty in the ordinary. Hubs and I were to fly out for a long weekend trip to NYC for a little bit of adventure mixed in with hubs attending a sinus conference today and tomorrow to get his CME credits for this year...
Our day:

 self timer airport photo 
 flight delay airport brunch
 (au bon pain, coffee, water and chocolate covered almonds)
 connecting flight, Chicago
 grounded for a bit while we wait for the traffic to clear
 heart clouds
 window seat 
 yum! (they seated us under Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas pics)
 kind gentleman taking our photo as he saw me lining the camera up for a self timer shot
Aladdin was fantastic! Hubs says he thinks it's his favorite ever. 
I'm saying it is a very close second to Lion King.
