saturday evening i made spaghetti & meatballs for dinner… (none of us are real big meatball fans in this house but i do have to say that these were the best meat balls i have made, they were super simple & super yummy!!)

anyway, mikayla & sopha sat down for dinner, shane wasn’t home from work yet but the girls were hungry & couldn’t wait any longer & jarred was at work….  sophia got so frustrated trying to pick up those long strands of spaghetti & when she finally got a piece on her fork it would fall off before it made it into her mouth, ooooooh my goodness she was frustrated & when she get’s like that she just starts screaming. so she was screaming & i was trying to cut her spaghetti into smaller pieces & then mik started to show her how to twirl the spaghetti onto her fork, shove it into her mouth & slurp it all up… soph loved it, she was laughing so hard!!! mik is good like that, instead of getting frustrated when sophia is frustrated & upset & screaming (i tend to get frustrated in these moments), mik can usually find a way to divert sophia’s attention somewhere else, she is able to get her to move on & i am so thankful to mikayla for that!! sophia still couldn’t quite get the spaghettin into her mouth so she just started picking it up with her hands, shoving it in & then of course, her favorite part, slurping it all into her  mouth.

i wrote on facebook “big sisters are always there to teach you the important stuff in life like how to properly slurp spaghetti”,  it is so true.

i am doing a project this year called PROJECT LIFE which is an AMAZING product created about 5 years ago by a popular designer/scrapbooker, Becky Higgins. it is a streamlined version of scrapbooking, there are pages with different size ‘pockets’ in them for photos & journaling & ‘stuff’ & you fill these pages for every week in the year. i have been wanting to do it for a few years now & this year i decided to jump in & give it a shot… my point was… because PROJECT LIFE is all about our every-day lives i have been taking more photos of our normal days & the stuff that we do & i love it!! i love that many years from now when sophia is in grade school & jarred & mikayla are off living their lives we will be able to look back & see & remember these days.

it is funny because here is sophia saturday night loving eating spaghetti with mikayla & the next day jarred came home with some chicken Mcnuggets & fries & sophia was all over him to share. every once in a while i will get sophia a happy meal with chicken nuggets & fries & it is her FAVORITE!!!

the first picture she is saying,  “Jarred, please share with me” & the second pic she is getting a little impatient, a little less polite & she is saying, “AAAAAAAHHHHHHH, give me a french frie, NOW!!!!!”

the third picture she is just so proud of herself, she has a frie in one hand a nugget in the other & she is so Happy!!  then look at jarred’s face, he is like “damn, buddha just worked me over for my lunch” so funny…
