1 Book a Year

Each year I take tons of pictures. Rarely do I have any of those photos printed. They just stay on my computer. The girls get to see them whenever they ask or if they are around when I download new pics from my camera. Sometimes they give me a hard time about my always taking pictures of them. They are pretty happy to see them though. Each January I start on a new yearbook for the previous year. Each January I also pledge to start the current year's yearbook as soon as the previous year's book is done. So far I have never followed through with that pledge, I just feel guilty about it knowing how much time it will take to do the book in January. This year I have decided not to make that pledge, part of my go with the flow mentality. I'm just going to accept the fact that I don't want to get started on the current year. After I don't know how many hours I finally finished 2012. My project world kind of comes to a stand still until the yearbook is done.The stand still is now over. I'm smiling really big right now. This year's book has 216 pages with 1155 pictures. I have a very difficult time editing out pictures so I have lots of small pictures and a few big pics. Keep in mind that I really am leaving lots of pictures out of the book. It should be in my hands on March 8. I'll make sure to post a picture of it when I get it! The girls get really excited to see the book too. It's a very popular item in our house for about 2 weeks and then it goes on the shelf until someone remembers something from their past and needs to see a picture. I love looking through them. One day, many years from now, Brian & I will have a big party and the entertainment will be looking through the yearbooks to see what fun things you remember.
