Time Flies!

All 4 Kids Fall

A photo I took in the Fall of 2003. My kiddos.

I have been editing this photo today to upload it to a site that will put it on a canvas. My daughter gave me the gift a year ago for Mother’s Day. Yes, the procrastination in me showing through. 🙂 I wasn’t sure at first what picture I was going to do. I took the year to think, yes, that is the reason for the procrastination. 🙂 (It sounds good.)

I went to upload and they suggest a bigger size. I will have to play some more in Photoshop. I do like how it turned out. I tried and tried that day to get them to all look at me and they never did. 🙂 I ended up with a couple photos with different expressions. I took this with an old 35mm film camera because I didn’t own a digital at that time. It was a cheap and simple camera. This is scanned in from a photograph. 🙂

I am glad digital camera’s were invented. I still have about six rolls of film to develop from back then. I have already developed over fifteen rolls. They have turned out well, other than my terrible photo taking skills. I kept them in a box in a drawer so they were not exposed to heat or light over the years.

I love when I get them back in the mail. It’s a good thing I know the year of the surroundings otherwise I would have no idea what year they were. 🙂

Funny when you can label your years by what home remodeling project was going on. 🙂

I have a whole tub of photos that need slapped in a photo album. I haven’t even begun to print off all the digital photos. It will keep me busy. I will always have something to do on those boring days.  🙂

I really should get them done before the two older kids start having their own families. 🙂

How do you keep your photos? Are they in a scrapbook or in a tub like mine? 🙂

    That was the loveliest thing to turn up on my reader ever. What gorgeous poppets. If you’d had digital at the time you might have dumped that one but I prefer unposed more natural photos.

      Thank you! I am finding that the silly ones are better also. I guess the posed ones are no longer the thing to do. 🙂

    That’s a really cute picture. Lots of happiness showing there. I have quite a few pictures of our granddaughter on our computer, but pictures of our son are hard copies and thrown into a shoe box. The old Polaroids are falling apart. I really should scan them before they disintegrate completely.

      Thank you. 🙂 Mine are in a plastic tub.

      It’s just one of those things we want to do but can’t bring ourselves to do. 🙂

    Loose photos and half finished photo albums from years gone by are some of my prized treasures too…
    like you, I could fill my days trying to complete them all but somehow I think unfinished is how they’ll remain 🙁
    Such a lovely picture of your children and what a precious keepsake!!~

      Thank you. I am beginning to wonder if mine will stay in the tub as well. 🙂
