I had seen this idea on another moms blog and had tried to file away a memory to do it someday with the girls. "The one hour challenge" The mom took about an hour and snapped a picture of her kiddos every 5-10 minutes. I thought it was such a fun idea and would be a good way to capture just a sneak peak of what it looks like in our house with the girls....
so here ya go.....
This morning I snapped the first picture of the girls cause they were being so sweet and innocent. Giggling on the stairs as they would go in to kiss each other. I had no sooner put a picture on Instagram and walked out of the room when I heard some more giggles....
Five minutes later I'm snapping this second picture to send to my mother n law. The girls think they are big stuff now that they can master the two small stairs at our front door. Apparently Kynli thought it would be a great idea to give her mother a heart attack by trying it on the big stairs. And Montana was right behind her just a giggling....
So the idea hit me... two pictures in five minutes... sounds like a great day to do the 1 hour challenge.
This is where I found Kynli a few minute later. She wasn't very impressed with the camera I think I interrupted some serious business going on inside that box... if you know what I mean... Pe hew!
And then we hit our annual snack time. And of course both girls want to wait on their stools while mom got their fruit snacks.
Oh dear... here comes that silly camera again. I'm pretty sure I better hurry up and get down before I get a swat.
Putting our Magnets from the front of the dishwasher into the bowls we just apprehended from the Tupperware drawer. Makynli was very organized and had hers all nicely placed.
Can you see the extended hand. That would be a fight over those nicely organized magnets getting thrown all over the floor by her sweet sister.
And yes can you believe it... we are 15 minutes into playing with the very same magnets (I told you they are a phenomenon at this house. But now instead of being strewn all over the entry way... they are all placed delicately inside the boots that had previously been on the drying mat.
Whoops.. mom was doing laundry and the time elapsed a little... But never fear... Montana is still on the magnet kick.. thankfully those ducts are magnetic!
And it wouldn't be an appropriate hour without a mention of "Daddy" So I had to smile when I want to find them for their last picture. The quietness had me a bit worrisome. But no big deal... Just up on their new favorite ledge watching "daddy" (pretty sure it was someone else entirely) work on the sprayer. Either way it made their day.
Thanks for reading. I was a little nervous that the girls would disappoint when I started the challenge. I feel like all I ever do is share how busy they are and how little I accomplish around this house. But I guess who can expect me to get much done when I'm walking around the house taking pictures for an entire hour.
anyway... I think they showed their true colors pretty well.
Hope you enjoyed and all you other mommy bloggers... I challenge you! It really is pretty fun!
