Shoot Me! #1

My mom makes calendars for the family every year with pictures of each family member. She goes all out and even puts little pics on the day square for the birthdays and pictures of the couples on their anniversaries. They are so fun, and new every year. She tries to use no picture older than 12 months. It's very impressive. This year she called asking for a picture of Jared and I together. Well....let me the same picture? Come to think of it, there are very few pictures of me at all!

Shortly after that I found Forever in Blue Jeans and a meme she was just wrapping up
Forever In Blue Jeans
She says "We are always the ones behind the camera, this is YOUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. Now she has a picture of herself from every week of this year. What a great motivation to use your camera, capture what your family is doing, and manage to squeeze into a few pics yourself!

Although, I have to tell you, if I'm goint to participate in this, I've got to figure out how my timer works!

Not a great picture, but it's a start. We took it right after breakfast. Miles wanted to cut and paste, so he was doing that and I snapped a shot of the two of us!

Letter Game

Miles and I have started playing a new game. We got the printables here (a fantastic blog too). I printed out the alphabet, and cut out some shapes for him.

He loves this game. We play one letter at a time, and he loves figuring out which shapes to use. I'll tell him the name of the letter and the sound it makes before he starts and he'll frequently ask the name of the letter after he's done too. He's pretty quick with it too.

Here he is wearing the big curve shape (like for a "C" or a "D") on his head.

Bounce House

Today we went to a bounce house place. Miles had a lot of fun! Here are some pics.In the car on our way.


Up, Up, Up!

Here I come!


He spent a fair amount of time staring at this video game.

Sorry for the poor photo quality. I think (hope) it was the lighting.
