The great semi-annual uploading of the pictures

Every year in our family we take tens and tens of photos. We like to let special events pass, let plenty of time go by so it is not fresh in our memories, and then months later empty the camera to see if we happened to record on film any of the moments of that special occasion in our family's/children's lives. It's a crapshoot.

To illustrate, take our honeymoon. We actually did bring our camera, and posed for plenty of pictures on our honeymoon; but then I opened the camera and exposed the film, so we actually have no documented proof that we spent that fun week in Carmel/Monterrey, California. Oh, and then we threw away our marriage certificates, so maybe we're not really married anymore. There's little proof.

Here is a little proof that the last four months really happened. Norah got bigger and looked like her Nana and got a new cousin. Isaac continued to perfect his rock star persona. We had friends and family over after Norah was blessed at church. Someone took a rocking family photo of us, personalities intact. We celebrated Christmas. Elliot played the piano at the mall. We pawned Aaron off on a scary dude at Legoland. Good times, all around.

Hi. I found your blog through C Jane. Just thought I'd say that you have cute, cute kids.

Looks like you've done your share of scrapbooking for the year. Call it good. Very cute photos! We're excited to see you all this weekend. We've forgotten what Norah looks like.

Who's the baby next to Norah?

Abby said...

I think it's hard for us to take photos because that was always Mom's job. I love that second-to-last one of Isaac. Norah is getting so big!

Jami said...

Emily,
Your blog is always a joy. Thanks for being you. Good job on the pics.

sarah said...

abby, wasn't that dad's job?

I love the blanket that Norah is on in the second photo. Is it handmade? If not, do you know where I can buy one?

Emily said...

Elizabeth -- Thanks! That cjane is pretty great, huh?

Sarah -- It's Becky's Sophie.

Abby -- My memory is that mom and dad both took pictures, but only of you! All those pictures of Norah were actually before when you were here for Christmas.

Jami -- You are a joy.

Sarah, again -- I'm not sure what you mean. We didn't talk about what link I was laughing about. (It was her friend Davey, and the funny clothes his brother was wearing.)

Alyssa, my sister-in-law Nancy made it. It's one of my favorites. I could probably arrange for her to make you one, if you wanted.
