Week 4
She has been picking her own outfits from her closet. She must be ready for warmer weather, since she keeps picking summer dresses, but needs to wear long sleeves & pants since we do live in Wisconsin. I caught her spinning in circles around the kitchen, dancing. I love innocent moments like this.

I know this is not the most 'artistic' shot, but it makes my heart swell. I love knowing how much my babies love to be together. I tucked them into bed in their own beds and when I went to check on them before I went to sleep - they were snuggled together. This is a common occurance around here. But I know it won't last forever, so I wanted to capture the memory while I still can.

52 Project: Week 2

We were finally getting some snow this week. Ben's preschool class made some pinecone bird feeders to hang on the tree out front then got to play with shovels in the snow.

Week 1 of my 52 Project.

I love taking a few minutes every night to snuggle with my babies before tucking them into bed. I know they are not going to want to rock with their mama forever, so no matter what kind of day it has been, I try to relish a peaceful moment.

52 Week Project

Happy New Year! Today is a fresh start, the beginning of a new year. A year filled with hopes, dreams, and goals. Part of my New Years Goals is to complete a 52 Week Project.

A 52 Week Project is this:
"Challenge your artistic skills and commitment to your craft and walk away with a year worth of memories and an experience that will last a lifetime. Take a photo a week of your every-day life and post it. One photo a week for a whole year."

All too often I am busy taking pictures of everybody else and do not take the time to snap some of my own kids. This will be a wonderful way to capture those little moments that may otherwise be missed and forgotten. Nothing fancy, nothing posed, not a planned & thought-out moment. Just life as it happens. At the end I will put them together into a book for my kids.

My week will go from the Saturday through Friday. Then I will post that week's photo the next morning. So look for a new picture every Saturday this year!
