Pictures (or lack of)

So when the first of the year came around I decided not to do Project 365 again. After two years I needed a break. I also forgot to take pictures on the 12th so I thought I figured out something I could do as an alternative this year. But when it came time to put together the collage, I realized I couldn't come up with 12 good pictures. I've seriously been slacking in the picture taking department this year. I definitely need to challenge myself to try harder.

Today when I was in the waiting room for Garrett's dentist appointment I scrolled through the pictures on my iPhone. What an odd assortment of pictures! I usually take them and email to Chris so he can get a peek at our day. Here's a few to share.

*Finally (and I mean FINALLY) got to go with my friend to the Alameda Antique Fair. This was one of my finds that needed a little TLC.
*Just a pretty sky.
*Back at the gym and no that's not Morgan, it's Garrett!! He and a friend attended a clinic to learn out to do a flip throw in for soccer. Let's just say he has a new appreciation for his sister's sport.
*Jack after a haircut, this is the shortest it's ever been cut. He looked adorable!

*Any guesses about this? This is Garrett's soccer jersey, pulled out of his bag, oh, I don't know, 1 month after the last time he wore it. All those black spots? Mold. And this is post wash and bleach!
*Another Christmas project. Seriously, what was I thinking?
*Jack at his dentist appointment. The first time he went they just "counted" his teeth. This time he got the full treatment. He was so good, I think it shocked the staff, he just chatted away the entire time.

*Morgan turned 12! Went out to her restaurant of choice-Red Robin.
*Got tracks? We do. And they are often set up and can make a track around our family room.
*Why did the turkey cross the road? To get to the mall, silly!
*Words With Friends...been playing since early summer I think. I always have at least a few games going. I may or may not show my kids mercy :-P. This was a screenshot of my biggest word (117 points)*. No, I did not play "ghazi" (I don't have a clue what that is). But I played "spiv" and the "s" landed on a triple word tile. That made my day!

*Morgan at her jazz class. She really loves it.
*And the little guy getting his papers from his mailbox at school.

And there you have some terrible pictures of the goings on from the last couple months.

those are awesome! not terrible at all... when I do my project 365, it's not about getting that great picture, it's about telling a story. capturing those everyday moments. the reality is that even our "terrible" pictures are a lot better than most, and being in an album with your words are going to be such a treasure years to come. and I will honestly admit that some days I get more somedays none... I just fudge it in the end. but shhh... don't tell.
