51/52 - The 52 Project

Linking up with Jodi at Practising Simplicity for Week 51 of a Portrait of your child for 52 weeks.  I'll have to try and get in another photo of the three of us next week as I've managed to get a family photo of us about 28 times this year.  I didn't want the pressure of once a week and went with the get more when you can which worked beautifully.  I can't wait to put these into a photo book in the new year.

Linking up with Jodi at Practising Simplicity for Week 49 of a Portrait of your child for 52 weeks.  Getting close to the end now and then I'll make up a photo book with the pictures.

James  :   Putting up Christmas Decorations on our tree. I'm so proud of James as he is now School Vice Captain for 2015 so it's been a big week for our family.

Sienna :   She made a long telephone device with wool and two cups and after she was finished she shortened it to put over her head.  She was so funny with her expressions, I just love this photo.

48/52 - "The 52 Project"

Linking up with Jodi at Practising Simplicity for Week 48 of a Portrait of your child for 52 weeks.  I can't believe there are only 4 more weeks to go of this project.  I will definitely do this again next year and while I'm taking photos most days of my children and our lives these photos were focused on what "child like" things the kids were doing or into rather than just a portrait of them each week.




"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

James  :   Turned 11 this week and also did a speech to the whole school applying for school captain which is a huge deal. 

Sienna :   This made me laugh watching her tippy toe to sneak up on the chickens to catch them.
