Why does it seem like nothing goes right? Why do I just keep telling myself "why can't we just catch a break?" Lately with this, that, and the other it seems like everything has been snowballing down hill. I keep asking myself what else we need to be doing... So am I the only one? Or does anyone else ever feel like this? And if so, what do you do that helps?

So this is totally random and some of you may not care. But I have been plagued with which direction to take with this problem and my poor OCD soul is divided and unable to decide.... which means its plainly buggin' me. :)What should be a small mole hill has turned into a Kilimanjaro! for me So here is the problem/dilemma/whatever:
I want to do a project 365, which is a picture a day for a year. Like this lovely lady, or this awesome guy Basically a photo journal. I have been wanting to do this and have started to many times. I first thought of doing it with like Shutterfly/Becky Higgins and other sites like that and print a book-EXPENSIVE. I also tried to print them off on my own with my handy dandy photo printer and just doing like a mini scrapbook-again Expensive and time consuming to try and do each day. So I thought I would just do it on my Photography blog as a daily entry. OR I could start another blog specific for this, OR just do it here on the family blog. So what all is YOUR opinions. You may not care, but again it is bothering my overly organised OCD self. I want to do this for many reasons. Namely to have a form of journal, as we all know that is important. So tell me what all are your thoughts?? Would you want to see them here, a different blog, or on my photography blog? Or would you really not want to see them at all and think I am totally wasting your time asking stupid questions...
Thanks for all your opinions and advice in advance...

I got this idea from another blog and I loved the idea. I am doing the 25 days of Christmas for John. Each day he gets to turn around another one (I had to make him promise not to cheat!) Some just say something that I love about him, some are a service or something that I will do that day for him, and others are where I am giving him something (like a small gift). I liked this idea for many reasons. John is super hard to shop for, and he usually knows what I am getting him for Christmas. So this was something that helped us to draw closer together. And it looks really cute on my wall! I am not going to lie people. :) No, but seriously, I love this. I think it will become another tradition to do each year.
Don't mind Elvin, he sure was not bothered. He was making me "something" to eat and could not be bothered. :)
I lucked out and found an Advent Calendar Kit from Joannes and I just used the elements from that kit with some scrapbook paper that I have. Super easy and inexpensive!

Me and a neighbor of mine wanted to get a few family pictures that help to capture how beautiful it is here with the fall colors out. So last night we decided we would take some last minute family pictures. This morning, we loaded everyone up and headed out! These were some of our family favorites. One of these will be our Christmas card this year... so act surprised when you receive yours. :) And look-there I am! I am usually the one behind the lens. :)
I gotta just say it! I have the cutest boys in the world! How can you resist these faces! :)

John took Elvin to his first movie. They went and saw Alpha and Omega which Elvin LOVED! John....not so much. But it was so fun to see how excited Elvin was. I get to take him to the next one. :)
We had a Car Cupcake Cake. He loved it. There was a boy there at the park that said "Wow. That looks so cool. I wish my mom would do something like that for me." It melted my heart. And of course... I gave him a cupcake. :)
He had a little accident on the way to the park... poor guy.
The spoiler was up on some kitkats, but they broke on the way to the park. Also, there was supposed to be a few more chocolate pieces. But it was really humid and we were in a hurry.
Elvin got this cool vacuum which he uses all the time. He also got a cool dog from his buddy Anna, some stickers, Thomas Trains, crayons, an airplane gun, silly string, and a train track set. All in all he is LOVING everything and trying to keep Camden from it all. Thank you so much everyone.

So I found this CD as I was going through my mission box. Dedicated to Jessica...hehehe. She risked getting robbed and had a digital camera, so while we were companions, she did a few short videos. I just thought that I would share. It brought back so much! WOW I miss it.
We were singing happy birthday to my companions brother. My companion is the one talking and holding the camera (just in case you could not tell:)

I had fun making these monster cupcakes. The boys sure loved them.
Camden went straight for the "eyes".
This was just funny because it only had one while Elvin was eating it... sort of a funny morbid. :)
Our neighbors the Binghams came over and had dinner with us to help celebrate.
Our pre dinner entertainment. Elvin has discovered his talent for singing. He loves to sing in this microphone. Especially (thanks mom) "Old misses witch" and "Once there was a snow man". He is so cute.

Collision on Interstate Elvin. No fatalities.
Sorry that they are a bit out of order. :)
