Seven People Twelve Times February

Last month I showed you a little project I am doing for my family where I take a picture of us all every month. This is last months.Β And here is this months. My LCD monitor on my camera isn’t working… so I had no idea if we were all looking or if for instance my 10 year old was making a silly face…. and after two shots Eli wouldn’t participate anymore. So this is the best we got. I’ll take it! All of us at Dad’s office weighing Norah for her 1 month.

Seven People Twelve Times in 2013

My friend Heather has done a project I am going to do this year. Every month I’m going to take a picture of our whole family. Hopefully some of them will be doing things that our family will do together. Not all of us just lined up on the couch. But this month, since Norah is new and small, lined up on the couch was just right. (And MAN my kids were being stinkers….. well Lucy was a stinker and Eli was mostly sleeping!!) I am going to try and post them on the last day of the month. Or at least close too the last day.


Highlights from January:

  • Norah’s birth πŸ™‚
  • Dad taking a week off to be at home after Norah’s birth
  • getting the bedrooms all ready for Norah’s arrival
  • Visiting with family and friends
  • Celebrating Ukrainian Christmas at Brad and Whitney’s
  • Hanging out at Grandma and Grandpa Davis’
  • Having Grandma Davis come and sleep over at our house
  • Surviving the flu (went through almost the entire family)
  • Sledding with Steed cousins
  • Alden reading the book and then getting to watch Harry Potter 2
  • Eli and Lucy having a sleep over in HillSpring
  • Celebrating Grandpa Steed’s birthday
  • Visiting Grandma Steed at the hospital
  • Lots of playing outside in all the snow

Foto Friday: Our Year in Photos

Month 3 Week 4: Favorite Character or Movie.

For the fourth week of each month we’ll focus on details.

To know more about this project you can read my first post here.

Well this week I had a lot of fun taking my pictures πŸ™‚ Lucy could never decide her favorite character or movie. She just kept saying but I love this book and this book and this book. So I never did take one of her but Eli and Alden both decided.

First up Eli. And this is his response. πŸ™‚ Totally Inspired by my friend Caryle who did Superman pictures with her adorable son Jeran.

Our Year in Photos: Superman

We had some fun taking these this week πŸ™‚

And Alden. Alden LOVES Mario. Love love love loves him and his silly games. This is totally inspired by one I found online.
I had wanted to do the whole family wearing a mustache…. but Eli would NOT wear it and Oliver was crying sooo no family Mario picture but here are the four that actually play the game πŸ™‚

Our Year in Photos: Mario

My favorite part of this picture??? Regan’s face! And man, how a paper mustache makes my nose look big. Good thing I can NOT grow a real one. (whoops left out that not at first πŸ™‚ )
