10 on 10

I found out about this challenge called 10 on 10 last month. Basically, on the 10th day of the month you take one picture every hour for ten hours to document your day ( and see the beauty in the little things).
I thought this month I would give it a try, so......

8:00 AM
Good Morning! Ava was fussing at me for bringing my camera into her room this morning. Such a silly girl! :)

9:00 AM
Lucy (our dog) finally chewed a hole into this elephant toy. I spent the next few minutes of my morning picking fluff off of the carpet.  

10:00 AM
Finally time to get ready! Every time we run the bathroom sink, our cats come running (yes both of them). They love drinking from this sink. I guess I can't blame them. I wouldn't want to drink room temp water from a bowl that may or may not have dog drool in it either!

11:00 AM
Ava and I had some errands to run this morning, unfortunately it was a waste. We went to the post office in hopes that our Christmas cards (which shipped 3 wks ago) were finally in. They weren't! Then we took Lucy to the community center in hopes to photograph her with Santa (my plan was that this would help Ava be more comfortable when it is her turn with Santa this weekend), but Santa wasn't there. Ava told me that Santa was gone because he needed to eat his "kiss miss kookies"! 

Anyway, I can't lie, we didn't drive this car today. This is my car but it doesn't have winter tires (which is dangerous and illegal), but my husband works nights and of course recently drove the Explorer so the amount of snow on it wasn't as nice. So I ran across the parking lot to snap this shot before we drove off in the other car!

12:00 PM
Lunch time! Yummy! Ava had tomato basil wheat thins, cheddar cheese, pb&j sandwich, and grapes. In this picture she is licking the flavor off of her wheat thins! 

1:00 PM
It's getting close to nap time. Ava is picking out the books she wants me to read to her before she lays down.

2:00 PM
 Ava is asleep, so now it's my time! Yippee! And how did I spend it today? On Facebook of course! :P

3:00 PM
Whoops, no shot! I laid down for a few minutes too! 

4:00 PM
 After snack time, we decided to complete another one of Ava's Christmas crafts. Today she worked on a penguin wreath. It came out so cute! She loves crafting!

5:00 PM
Today was our first trip back to physical therapy since Ava's surgery. I took this shot while we were on the elevator. I had planned on taking a few shots during the therapy session but they hired a new therapist while we were gone so I was busy with "get to know you" stuff. Anyway, Ava seemed to like the new lady, Lana, which is really awesome since we will be seeing her twice a week! 

6:00 PM
So usually I like to have dinner on the table by 6:00 pm but that didn't happen today. By the time Ava and I returned home from therapy it was almost 6:00! Tonight we made pizza (Ava LOVES making pizza). This is the dough!

30 Days 1 Thing

Set 6
November 26-30 

Well this is it folks! The 30 Days 1 Thing challenge has come to an end. Don't worry, I am sure that you'll still see Hemi around!

Day 26
Under the tree seems to be a favorite hiding place for all of the pets, including Hemi.

Day 27
Hemi sitting in the Christmas tree. She was drawn to the lights like a moth.

Day 28
Hemi is looking out the window at one of our first decent snowfalls of the season.

Day 29
When the weather outside is frightful, sometimes you just have to find someone warm to cuddle up with!

Day 30
Well we made it! 30 days of Hemi! Now time to celebrate!

In case you missed the rest of my 30 Days 1 Thing Project, here are the links:

November Photo Hunt

Another month complete! Yippee! Hope you enjoy what I ended up with.
1. Home Sweet Home
Our apartment is the one on the bottom right. This is the first time that we have ever lived on base and it definitely has its ups and downs!

2. Thankful
I am thankful for LOVE and LAUGHTER!

3. Family
I set up the trusty tripod to capture a few shots of us decorating our Christmas tree.

4. I Ate This
(the first shot is my actual entry)
Yes I did cheat and cook my family a turkey in a bag! But what started out like this........
 Ended up like this! And it was yummy delicious!

5. A Turkey
Ava and I made these cute little turkeys out of rice crispys

6. Something Handmade
My little sister, Megan, knitted this scarf for me

Our radiator! Over here there really isn't central heat and air. You get radiators and fireplaces.

8. Something Cold
Ice, enough said! :P

9. Something Orange
This is an orange ape that my husband sent me a couple of years ago, during his first deployment.

10. Anything Goes (A shot from November)
