So things that have been going on with us. I have been doing a lot of crocheting lately. I have just been in that mood. Other projects are in the works as well and I will try to update as I get them done. I got last years photo book in the mail. I also change my blog header every year and have been using that as the cover for that year. I am really loving how it turns out.
This was the previous years:
When my mom was here one thing I got done was I had half of a paper scrapbook and all of Elvin's first year scrapbook that I wanted to get scanned and then printed in a book like these others. There was a few different reasons for this. One: I am OCD and it was buggin'. ;) Two: I had taken so many photos of EVERYTHING from Elvin's first year. And as is often the case with first kids, I had a ton of like two page spreads that had like 8 pictures of him in his santa suit... for example. The kid was only 2 months at the time so you can imagine how in all the pictures it is not like he had a different expression. Needless to say, the scrapbook itself was not holding. It was falling apart. And then I had only like 7 pages from Camden's first year. So I took them to Staples and they scanned all the pages and I uploaded them to snapfish and ordered another book. I was really worried about what the resolution would be. But they turned out really good. They just were not as sharp as the others, which was to be expected. But I am happy with it. Here is the cover.
And now comes the OCD... yep. I am proud to say that all of our memories are all digital. Here are the last 3 books.
I am still working on my mission scrapbook. I think it will be a work in progress for awhile as I don't work on it as often.
