Day 14 of 365

Whew, caught up on posting. This is a lovely little statue at the playground, not creepy at all eh. You'd think if they are going to put a giant snake at the playground they'd make it look a little less menacing.

Day 13 of 365

Yeah we'll see about that!

Day 12 of 365

So I wasn't supposed to use pictures of my kids for this, but this is the only picture I got all day on this day. So I'm semi cheating I guess, oh well I didn't figure I'd make it a full year and not use at least one picture of the kids lol. This is my youngest Hailely, learning to walk. This is such a fun age, it seems like she learns something new everyday. Ignore the mess in the background, we move in 2 days and the place is a disaster right now.

Day 11 of 365

Here are a couple desert pictures. These 2 were taken back in August at my current place of residence, Las Vegas. We moved here just last year so I don't have a whole lot of pictures from here yet, my husband is in the military and we have about 3 years left here so before we go I will make a trip out to death valley!

This one was taken at our previous station, Tucson, AZ. We were there for about 4 years and this picture was my favorite of all the ones I've taken there. This was actually taken with my point and shoot from inside a moving car lol.
And here is my shot for the day. My 4 year old decided to put on a shadow puppet show for me and her little sister today. I had horrible light in there and couldn't use the darn flash or I'd lose the shadow so it's extremely grainy and the textured wall doesn't help much either I guess.

Day 10 of 365

My youngest daughter has started to take an interest in books, especially lift the flap books. I love the cubby hand pictures. It didn't come out exactly how I wanted it so I think I'm going to have to attempt this picture again. The focus is off and she wasn't really interested in sitting still for pictures, maybe another day.

Day 9 of 365

Nothing special. We went to the park today and I was excited to see grass, living in the desert I don't get to see much of this.

Day 8 of 365

I am struggling with this already lol. I wondered around the house for nearly an hour today trying to find something to take a picture of (other than the kids). This is all I could come up with. These belonged to my oldest daughter and I'm waiting for my youngest to grow into them because they are just too cute.

Day 7 of 365

I am kicking myself right now. We took the girls to the Forum Shops at Ceasar's Palace and I forgot my camera!! The whole time we were there I kept thinking "that would have been a cool picture"...doh. Oh well, it's not like I can't go back another day. So today you will have to settle for a picture of Eddie's motorcycle, it's a close up of the rear wheel. I've been meaning to take some shots of this for a while, I just love all the lines and details. I need to get it out of the garage next time though, I really didn't have much room to move around to get these shots.

Day 6 of 365

I promise I took this picture yesterday, I just didn't get a chance to sit down at the computer all day. We had to take Hailey for her 1 year shots yesterday, poor thing got 5 shots and had blood taken, so she was not in a good mood at all. Anyhow, this is a picture of my very first lunchbox. I found it while I was packing up. I used to have an obsession with these things. I have probably about 30 total now that just sit in a box and collect dust, I can't bring myself to part with them though. Maybe we'll find a nice spot for them at the new house.

Day 5 of 365

The impending packing is starting to stress me out. We move in a week and half and I have packed about 2 boxes so far. Everyday I look at these boxes waiting to be packed and just sigh. I HATE moving!

Day 4 of 365

My daughter watching Wow Wow Wubbzy. The bulb on our good TV burnt out so we busted out the garage TV. I know I said I was going to try take pictures of things other than the kids but she looked too cute laying there, I did try to do something a little more creative with the composition and played with depth of field a little bit.

This is what my husband decided to do tonight and he is an extremely annoying drunk.

Day 1 of 365

This is a photo of one of my new favorite things to do. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I enjoy playing Rock Band. As you can see, from the splintering on the ends, these drumsticks have taken a beating. It's a great way to get some aggression out, just beat the crap out of the drums, and it helps that both of my girls love watching me and Eddie play.

Here I am

Ok to everyone who insisted I do this, I am here. I'm going to give this very ambitious project a go! I will be taking a picture a day for the next 365 days. I'm going to do my best to be creative with this, it seems like all I ever bother to photograph is my children and I feel like it is time for me step it up and start seeing the everyday things in a more creative light. I'm going to play with lighting and composition and just have fun with the whole project. I just hope I can stick with it!!
