365 Project

So I read about this 365 Project...I have heard it being used as a photography challenge but this is right up my alley! I think it will be really cool and will make a great book in the long run. I read through some of the ideas and I am so excited and am already making a list of which I want to do first. It will take a long time...about a year:)
Think you could take on a project like this? Maybe we can share our end results!

Here are a few pictures of the kids, opening gifts, playing with gifts or just being happy cuz it's Christmas!













Here are a few new pages. I am really getting into learning how to use photosop as my mainscrapbooking program but that is not an easy program to just "pick up". Slowly but surely I am making progress - I think I learn something new everyday. I have a book but that is just too hard so I prefer to use tutorials which make it much easier...how does anyone follow along in those stupid books?!?!

This is the dinosaur that Lucas got for Christmas...it is huge and loud! It's so cool tho cuz it picks things up and roars and lights up. When he was unwrapping it he got scared and refused to finish unwrapping it! We finally got him to open it and Daddy put it together. Then it took a few hours for the batteries to charge but once it was all done this is what we got!

My mom took the kids to a friends house to exchange their gifts. Ninny (Cindy) got them both new puupy dog stuffed animals which they adore.

OK so there was another storm that passed by last night and we are expecting more today. Here are a few shots of my front porch - it was so windy that it covered the front door which rarely ever gets snow on it. The backyard is just one big pile of snow...too bad the temperatures are so frigid - that means no playing in the snow today!

It was a slow day here, recovering from last night and finishing our Christmas shopping. We only have one gift left to buy and that will get done tomorrow. These are pictures of the kids playing with Daddy after their bath tonight, betime soon I hope:)

We had Ray's family over for a Christmas get together tonight. You can always count on a loud time when they all get together but in the end it's usually a good time:)

I have been following the case of this little girl from the moment that I heard about it. I am saddened to hear that she is in fact gone and I pray that she may rest in peace.



This is what I woke up to this morning. I don't have a problem with it as I have no reason to even venture outside today...it seems to be slow right now but from what I saw of the storm on weather.com it looks like this is only the beginning!

Abby just had to wear my Mom's boots...she fell face first almost as soon as she took her first step in them!

Abby wanted a picture in front of the tree...I must have taken 15 pictures, do you think I could get one where they were all looking at me???

These are not new pages but newer, lol.




It snowed for most of the day today so there is a nice white blanket of snow on the ground right now. It rained for a few days straight and melted most of it. It is nice to have a bit of snow, makes it feel more like Christmastime!

We did some shopping today and stopped at LJS for lunch. I LOVE the malt vinegar and we don't get to that side of town very often. The kids were asleep in the car but they enjoyed the hats that I picked up for them. Lucas refused to get his picture taken in his hat hence it is only Daddy and Abby. But I couldn't leave him out so there is a picture of him being silly.

Here are a few of the newest scrapbook pages. I wish I had more time to do them but I take every second that I can get!

This is my first attempt at doing something computer/internet/site related. I guess it helps to have step by step instructions!
