A year of Sundays

I am starting to see a theme with me. I like projects, but I rarely finish them when they should be finished, or at least I procrastinate until the very. last. minute. and always seem to pull it off. Somehow. Well, I am starting another project that I can't procrastinate. I am going to start taking a few pictures every Sunday to document our lives. I like this idea for a multitude of reasons. First reason, life changes so drastically sometimes week to week, and other weeks it stays the same. It will be fun to see what little bits of life I capture. The second reason is that I NEED to learn how to take pictures indoors WITHOUT the flash on this camera. I HATE the flash, and I have up until now been too lazy to take pictures (or try and learn to take pictures) the way I WANT to take pictures. So, I figure after awhile I will get embarrassed of posting these blurry weird photos, and I will make myself learn how to make them look good! Now I am not going to take a bunch of artsy fartsy pictures. Just pictures from my every day life, and who knows maybe some weeks will be artsy fartsy, maybe some weeks will be big blobs of blur! I am excited to see if I can keep up with this, and I hope I make at least SOME effort to make the pics look better over time. Whew! What an explanation!

And now, week 1.

Brady with his breakfast of choice for the last week or so (waffles with peanut butter and syrup) and my breakfast of necessity (yogurt and pain pills). Oh, and the church bag all packed and ready to go.
Natalie's new dress (and socks and shoes).
First real season Cowboys game: today! Cowboys vs Browns. 28-10!
Playing nicely. For the moment. Brady finally got to open his new digger toy, bribery for sleeping in HIS bed, and staying there all night, for more than one night at a time.

Thats a way cool idea! I wanted to do a 360 days of sleep...taking pictures of them while they nap... hard to do w/o waking them up, though!!
And cute dress on Natalie!! Where did you get it? The girls are both needing new Sunday dresses and I never know where to go!

Oh, I love the idea of taking pictures when they are sleeping, they look SO peaceful! And the dress is from Target, where else? LOL, it wasn't too expensive and she loves it, and I do to, it is such a simple KID dress, not all fancy pants and looking way to old for her age!

Don't forget to make prints. And, you should print out your digiscrap blog, too. Otherwise they may not be there when you are old. Love. Dad
