My 365 day photo blog!

Ok, So blogging last year wasn't a great success. Here's to trying again. My goal this year - Blog a new picture everyday for a year. Don't go looking for portraits here (other than the great one to the left taken by Katie White) - These photos will be snapshots of our life. Snapshots being the key. I'm going to try and not worry about getting the perfect picture, or whether or not it is technically correct. I'm not going to spend an hour editing each photo. I'm just going to try and capture a photo a day for a year. Sometimes I'll blog every day, and sometimes I might do a whole week at once. You'll never know what you are going to get. Some posts will have just a picture and sometimes I'll write a little bit about it. Thanks for joining me on this new adventure!

I'll start with a picture from last night...

It doesn't snow very much where we live. It can snow all around us, but we don't get much here in our little banana belt area. So when it does snow, the kids have a great time. Yesterday it snowed all morning. The kids had been playing outside for a couple of hours when I made them come in to warm up. Then Dad came home and back out they went in the dark to play in the snow some more. It had started to warm up a bit, and rain. That warmer weather and rain made for some great sticky snow. The kids quickly rolled out some very large and very heavy giant snow balls. It took both D. and I (along with a ramp) to get the middle of Frosty up and in place. It was really heavy!

At well over 6 feet tall, this is a record breaking snowman for our family! Too bad it rained most of the night and we didn't get any better pictures. Even with all its imperfections, I love this photo. What a fun way to spend New Years Eve!

What a cute family! I love how you all stand out in your colors and the background is very neutral! Enjoy your 365.
