My OCD-ness

I am going to try to post more often here. And I discovered a handy new app that lets me post from my phone. So lucky you guys that will probably see more pics and video from my phone! ;) I will still post my scrapbooked pages here so friends and family can see them too. But my hopes are that I will post more about what is going on with us with the phone app as it is more at hand to use.
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.
