Week 3

I'm going to have to get used to this weekly posting.  It creeps up on me but it's also nice not to have to do an entire month at once.  Anyway, here are the photos from last week.

Week 2

I've got some catching up to do in posting.  I'll try to have each week's post up by the following Tuesday so I should now be on track.

Day 12- Wednesday, 01/12/11
Deep freezing some parasites at work.  Cryogenics facinates me.

Day 13- Thursday, 01/13/11
Spent the better part of the day looking for snow boots so my boys can play in the snow next week.

Day 14- Friday, 01/14/11
My list maker.  He'll spend hours doing this.

Let's get this party started!

Here we go--round two.  Last year went well and I'm looking forward to seeing what this year brings.
A new year means new goals:
1) Blogging instead of facebook.
2) Weekly updates instead of monthly (daily is just not going to happen).
3) No more kitchen pig as the monthly marker, instead rotating family members. 
4) At least one picture of each family member including pets in every month.
5) Monthly family portraits using camera's timer--I'm looking forward to this one.
6) Explore camera options and avoid auto settings.
7) Have fun and enjoy the process.
