Friday Photo Journal - Week 1

Thursday, January 3, 2013

Hello my friends! Welcome to the first edition of Friday Photo Journal. I am so happy to see you here!

This is my first attempt at hosting a meme. I have joined in on many over the years, and I finally decided that I wanted to host the party for a change. This little project is my way of collecting memories of everyday moments throughout the year, and journaling our journey as a family so that we can reflect on it later. Time seems to pass so quickly and I want to make sure that I don't forget all those precious little moments we share.

I hope to spend a little time at the end of each week gathering my favorite photos and jotting down some highlights from our week. At the end of the year I will compile all the pages into a sort of family  year book.

I invite you to join me and share as much as you wish. You are welcome to post just one image from your week, or an entire journal entry for each day. Just include my button in your post and link up here (link directly to your post only please). Then visit other bloggers and encourage each other!

About the images:
Little Miss is in the "I can do it myself!" toddler phase and loves to help with chores. Lately she's been feeding the dog and helping to unload the dishwasher. Too bad this phase rarely lasts past 4 years of age.

We have been enjoying lazy mornings throughout the holidays, but that came to a stop today as we're back to homeschooling after winter break. 

Our great dane Bella keeps watch over us.

It has been chilly this week, but we haven't seen any snow. 
Little Miss likes to watch the big kids play outside.

Those curls! I swear I don't enhance them in any way.
 They just air dry into perfect ringlets. I have to capture them!

Hubs and I are joining millions of other folks in renewing our healthy lifestyle and I have been stocking up on fresh fruits and veggies. I love, love, love fresh berries and fruit salad. Yum!

That's it for this week. I do have 4 children, I swear.
 It's just that only one of them lets me snap photos of her on a regular basis ;)

look at all her gorgeous curls! My little ones used to be like that - now her hair is so long the curls fall right out with the weight of her hair. I miss them so!

Hi Melissa, I love this collage you did, and yes, those curls...sigh!

My kiddos are now 15 and almost 18 and neither one lets me photograph them any more with the exception of my son when playing sports. I had to make sure to get his permission for the post I linked, haha!
