Well, I ended this year with a participant as willing as he was way back when I started this...



A whole year ago -

The project didn't come out exactly as I was hoping for -

A 365 Project - a Project in pictures...of ME and my kids in pictures.
Every day, a photo of me and a kid, or the kids...

Moms NEVER get in the pictures...
Regardless of how you feel about yourself in pictures - (I can't stand myself in pictures) - I think it is so important to get out from behind the camera and get in the pictures once in awhile.

While I was hoping for a shot a day - regardless of how brilliant or frumpy the picture might be, it just wasn't meant to be. I was off to a GREAT start - but soon realized that because I was snapping all of the pictures myself, they were all looking the same.
A shot of me and one kid, the camera held out at arms length, sometimes a willing kid, sometimes not...
And that...got old.
I didn't want to abandon the project all together though - and I managed to pull of 164 posts - not too shabby.
Not 365...but more than we had the year before to be sure...in fact, probably more than we had ALL the years before combined...
Do I love the pictures? Certainly not...but I love the idea of them...
And I love that maybe one day - my kids will look back on these photos and know that I existed...that I tried...

So...with that, I'm going to continue this project into 2011 -
Asking random strangers (or one of the kids) to snap a picture of me and the (other) kid -

Again, they won't be glamorous - but they will be...and to me...
that is the only thing that matters...

Pardon the cell phone pictures -

not that they would have been much better via the camera!


HA!

Tried to get a shot of the kids & I before heading out to a local production of Junie B. Jones -

As usual - my participants weren't as willing as I'd of liked them to be...
but...whatever...right?

We had the opportunity to take the kids to Disney on Ice, Mickey & Minnie's Magical Journey...

Tried to get a family photo during the special meet & greet with Mickey & Minnie that we were lucky enough to be special guests at...but...The kids were a bit shy of Mickey & Minnie ~

WHAT?
I couldn't believe it...but, it is what it is...

If at first you don't succeed - try, try...and try again!
Tried to snap a few pics of me and the kids at our weekend away this past weekend...
This is about the best I got! HA HA!

You'd think that on a two day mini vacation - with so much togetherness & so many fun things to do -
I'd of been able to get a good shot or two...

But there was just too much other stuff to look at besides the camera! {likely excuse - seeing as how ALL of our pics look like this right? ;) }


This one - this one right here - the rare family photo where EVERYONE is looking!
What FUN we had playing Laser Tag!
