Yesterday, I got this in the mail:
A very large package of PRINTS!
I'm not much of a scrapbooker and my kids' baby books are a sorry sight, what with all the gaps in the information. I would like to be better about these things, but have never gotten into a good habit of keeping on top of it. That said, I want to have some physical representations of our lives for them to flip through without the aid of an electronic device. Someone gave us this little album years ago, so I thought through many of the changes that have happened in our lives this year and started to upload pictures to Costco.com (btw, they'll mail you your prints for FREE if you're willing to wait a week for them!)
My hope is that, starting with 2009, I can make a small album like this (around 80 photos) each year, as a record of God's faithfulness to us throughout the year. I'm thinking something like the way the Israelites often built altars of remembrance. I can do one album a year, right?
Hope your new year is off to a good start! I'm looking forward to all of the memories that will be created with family and friends (like you!) between now and the start of 2,000-&-11 or 20-11, however you're choosing to say it!
