Project 365 - Week 1

Project 365 button designed by

Wow - a brand new year. And one of my goals this year is to be more diligent in this effort (and to not lose any pictures!!). I LOVE my new fancy camera so it shouldn't be too hard *grin*!

But, since I waited til the last minute and we have to leave for church in under two hours ... here we go!

Monday - Playing with my new camera, I somehow managed to capture this shot. I am SURE it will never happen again, but I LOVE how her face is the ONLY thing in focus!

Tuesday - SNOWBALL FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday - My girlies enjoying a princess movie in the VERY wee hours of the morning. Well, OK, it was like 7am. But, hello, this IS still Christmas vacation!!!

(Did anyone else just think of Chevy Chase right then? Christmas Vacation? No? OK ... carry on.)

Thursday - The last day of the old year ... and the ONE time sweet Hattie WILLINGLY posed for a picture! It was even her idea.

Seriously - how stinkin beautiful is this child? I mean, I know I'm a smidge biased, but COME ON!!!!!

January 1 - Packin' it up. Fresh clean house for a fresh new year!

January 2 - Two girls in a bucket ... watchin a little Elmo while mama finishes a tad more cleaning.

So that was OUR week. Sara is hosting us again and I cannot thank her enough. I absolutely LOVE this project and the memories it is making for my family.

Please, feel free to join us. After all, we are only 2 days in to this new year!!!

15 of ya left some love:

I always loved when my kids would snuggle together to watch TV, so sweet.

the bucket is hilarious and really looks quite uncomfortable!!! :)

Awe! The girls together are so sweet! What kind of camera did you get? You nailed that first picture, for sure!

Welcome back!

very sweet - I have two daughters close in age too. I love the together pictures like the ones you shared when they were younger.

Happy New Year

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to create that blurred-all-around effect. Not.easily.achieved! Very nice – and so appropriate for a busy rushed morning.

Hattie – GORGEOUS eyes! Gorgeous girl. ... ‘course (seriously...) I have one too

Girls in a bucket: too precious! It was a sad day when my two littlest ones could no longer fit in the laundry basket together.

You do have a very good camera – the snowball fight is another great shot!

It’s great to have you with us again, BeckyJo!

Happy New Year!

Looks like you are rightfully enjoying that new camera! Awesome shot of just Hattie's face in focus...and love the simple sister moments you captured. That's what life is all about! Looking forward to next week's shots already! :)

My sweet friend. Why have I not been to your blog in like...NEVER?!? I guess I didn't know or forgot or something.


I'm here now and love it and you. I love the Project 365 idea and I'm going to do that this year...although I'm already behind. Oh well! I'll snap one this afternoon.

Have a great day and I hope you are feeling better!
