We were all pretty tired after our adventure up the freeway yesterday that we were really mellow around the house for the rest of the evening. I need to jot down some more thoughts from yesterday today. I think I will probably take some more shots around the house to supplement if I need them. 


I am getting excited about putting this all together. Hope you have a great Saturday!

    Isn't cool when there is *someone* to compare your kids to? "Just like his sister...I love it.
    Your photo in those brown chairs took me aback. And back. Sat in that very spot many times myself. Blessings to your whole family.

    I don't leave the house without my book of sudoku puzzles. Loving the everyday shots, very inspiring.

    How many photos are you taking each day? I am assuming that there are more than you are posting! Are you planning to use only the ones that you have posted, or are you planning on using more? I have 20-30 photos per day. I want to use them ALL, but they will have to be so small to fit them all on a page!

    Cinback - I am taking between 10 and 20 or so (not as many as I have in the past). Part of the decisions you will make will be how you want to display your photos - some people will use all of them and some just a few.

    Hi Ali! I have a photography question. I have a Canon Digital Rebel XTi (think in hindsight I should have gone with the Xsi, but oh well), and am primarily using the kit lens for that, which is not image stabilized. I have the 50mm f1.8 lens as well, which is great, but I like the range of the kit lens. Since I don't like using the flash, many of the pictures are blurry (and not the good kind of blurry), and even if they're not totally blurry, they're also not nice and crisp. (I am using the P setting primarily and adjust ISO) How much is the lens a factor in this? Have you used the image stabilized lenses, and if so, how much of a difference does that make?
    Thanks so much for all your help with this awesome project. Have a great weekend!

    LOVING this project and seeing such a cool peek into your life ali! i think SO many of us who fell in love with you and your style of scrapbooking, kind of view you as a superstar minus the daily junk (piles, laundry, dinner decisions). documenting your day through words and photos, really gives a true view that your day to day life is just as normal as ours. (i hope i explained correctly what i was trying to say there) :)
    i got a late start on this project, so i can't wait to start it this coming week! but, for the record you are our superstar! and simon is looking so grown up in that eating the bagel pic, such a handsome young man! couldn't help melting as i read "just like his sister"!!!

    I am really enjoying this week. Each day though I have taken less and less photos, but i think more quality photos, if you know what i mean.
    I have started to pull it all together. think I have decided on a layout too. Now the hard task Sunday evening, choosing which photos to print!

    Love the pics of Simon. My son is turning 8 next week. They grow so fast. . . .
    Just a question for your thoughts: I am averaging about 60 pics per day. I may print them all...is that crazy? Seems like so many. (Love scrapbookpictures.com also so will probably print there.) And due to so many pics, I'll be doing a lot of cropping (and purposely took some "far away" so I can crop pieces out)---I think 3 1/2 x 5 would be great but 4x6s are cheaper. AHH, anyway, my question is are you just gonna print all 4x6s and go from there? Or will you make some 5x7, etc.? I am just curious about that. (I'm doing the Antholgoie album and a 12x12 intro page that's going to be all digi with one big photo--maybe decreased opacity with journaling on top. But the rest....not sure how to print them yet!! Feeling overwhelmed w/the # of photos but love 'em all.)

    Hey, I just thought you'd like to know this; my husband says I'm driving him nuts with the picture taking. Yet he's taken more today than I have. Sooooo cute.

    I'm so sad...I started out good this week with pics -but today I have failed miserably....and even a little bit yesterday. Not sure if I should keep going or start over next week? Ugh!

    Michelle - I would print them all 4x6 and then crop as you are putting the album together. That way you could use "extras" if you want for other layouts that tell different stories.
    Krystyn - don't worry about it! Just keep going + do more words than photos for that day (or supplement with others from the week - like pics around your house...things that could be any day).

    Krystyn, you have NOT failed. I almost packed it in the other day cause I have not journalled. At all. And I haven't kept a ton of stuff. But Ali told me not to quit and I'm so glad I didn't. I may not have our whole week documented in writing, but I sure got a good "picture" of our life right now. And part of my life right now is not having enough time to journal AND take pics AND save stuff. I'd just sit down and write about WHY you "failed" today, what got in your way.
    Sorry, Ali, hope it's okay if I jumped in there. LOL You just helped me so much this week by telling me not to quit.

    I am REALLY enjoying this project! Never done anything like this before. I am going with your Shutterfly book to put mine all together. I reviewed my photos yesterday, about 200 so far, and I really like what I have. Like many, my notes or journaling is not as much, but I am okay with this...I know a picture can speak a thousand words!!!
    On another note I just wanted to say how handsome Simon looks in your photos.
