Project 365-ish: Week 2

Today I'm sharing my summary of our second week of 2011. I meant to have this posted earlier in the day, but it hasn't been a good 24hrs in the Hickson household. Both of my kids came down with fevers, tummy aches, sore throats and general unhappiness overnight. I took them to the after hours clinic today and I'm still waiting to hear for sure whether they have strep throat or not, but my bet is they do. The doctor thought it was probably a fun mix of strep plus flu! Oh joy! My poor sweeties.

Despite the last 24hrs, we did have a rather fun week...

Courtney started her dance classes back up - this time with an actual dance studio that holds classes in our neighborhood, rather than Kinderdance. So far she's loving it, and I'm excited that she'll get to be in a real recital at the end of the semester at Ballet Austin!

As you may have heard, I made homemade pop tarts this week...

Carter spends most of his time these days playing with his superheroes, especially the new Batcave that Santa brought him...

My sweet girl asleep on the couch... (she is nearly always in either a tutu or a princess dress!)

I rejoined a wonderful CSA and this is what came in my first box of locally grown organic veggie goodness. Yum!

Carter got an ant farm for his birthday and the batch of mail order harvester ants arrived this week. He was soooo excited!

He even decided to make a scrapbook about ants... (His first scrapbook! Mama is proud...)

Courtney watched one of her favorite movies. Again.

Remember I mentioned the superhero obsession. This was dinner attire on Friday.

Yesterday we spent the morning at the Austin Children's Museum. It was mega crowded but the kids had a blast. Here they are tinkering in the Tinkerer's Lab.

And finally, life gave us lemons... I'm thinking about making lemonade!

(Ok that was actually a care package from my in-laws tree in Arizona!)

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Your kiddos are sooooo cute!! I love her sense of style! ;D Think how fun it would be to wear tutus and princess dresses everywhere! If she has an extra tiara, I will totally hang out with her!! :D
    Hope everyone is feeling better soon, lots of crud going around and we are just getting over some of it here too.

  2. Darling photos, wow, I cannot believe how much they have grown, time sure does get away from you as they little granddaughter "Kendall" is 4, and believe it or not its her 3rd year in dance...I cry everytime I see her perform as I am sure you will with Courtney! PS: When I need a superhero I will for sure "Call Carter"! LOL!

  3. Love this. I think I would love to meet you in person because if you are even half as fun as your kids seem, you must be awesome!...and do the adults get to wear that sort of dinner attire too? :)

  4. So much fun getting a glimpse into your life, Libby. And, of course, Carter and Courtney couldn't be any cuter if they were Burrages! :)

  5. I love these! I am patiently waiting and taking pics even though I don't have my Project Life stuff yet, LOL! And yes, you MAY have even heard me whine about that this past week :D Sorry :) I am loving the lemons-what a great care package!

  6. I've decided that YOU are my super hero! Just watching all you do AND you manage some creative time!
    Great post and the wee ones are absolutely adorable!

  7. Wow looks like you all had a busy and fun week, Libby! Brilliant photos of Carter and Courtney. I hope they are better now - sounds like they had an awful dose altogether.


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
