12.22.13 – 12.28.13
Halfway through my 365!!! I never thought I’d really make it this far in. But as I look back on my images from the past six months, I am so glad I’m capturing all these memories.
My favorite Christmas present this year was a digital photo book my mom put together of my childhood photos. My brother and sister both received one as well. We had so much fun recalling the great memories contained within as we went through each other’s books Christmas Eve.
Mom commented that the one thing she noticed going through the boxes and boxes of photos was that it was only birthdays and holidays; she didn’t have a lot of the every day. No matter what event or non-event they are from, those memories are priceless to me.
My resolution for the new year is to keep going with this daily project and to print and get these photos in an album(s)!
My first try at snowflake macro photography. I’ll call this round 1. I’m sure I’ll have more opportunities yet this winter to work on this more.
Let Christmas commence!! The kids received window crayons in their Christmas stockings at Grandma and Grandpa Lammers’. So, of course, grandma let them decorate her window!
It’s hard to choose just one photo for a day at Christmas. I have so many of each individual, but really the three of them getting along means the most.
A snapshot to some, but this is probably the most sentimental shot I took over the holiday. This is Christmas to me. My grandma (in the dark snowflake-dotted sweater partially turned away from the camera) has hosted Christmas Day dinner my entire life. This is just one of the dining tables set up in her house to accommodate everyone. By the way, this is the traditional adult table. I will never attain adult status to sit there. 🙂 Thirty-five Reimers gathered round the tables this year.
The ladies seated here (as well as the ones that were there but weren’t sitting here at the time) are near and dear to my heart; aunts, great-aunts, cousins that were (and are) had an important part of shaping who I am today. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!
It’s all over and only the mess remains.
Back at it bright and early to finish up their Lego creations.
Even the retro game, Operation, has been “updated”. Instead of the body parts, he now has headphones and a video game controller to surgically remove. But the zap remains. That zap gets a giggle out of them every time.
