It's that time of the year...., not just Thanksgiving and Christmas.....but the time in November when this BOY here.....below, has a special day.  It's the time in November when I frantically take out my camera and the process begins....the task of capturing another year of growth and development. It's a joyful task, though....perhaps more so for me than him. I take a little over 100 photos and carefully choose the ones I adore....

Some I keep privately, others I share with the world.

He sees me with my camera and sighs, lol....he KNOWS, he so knows, ''Uh oh, here she goes!'' ''How many poses, mom?" - "Oh, just a few," I say. It's an arduous tradition and our poor kids really don't enjoy it that much, they whine, they complain, they make hilarious excuses to get out of it and be done already.  They don't understand why we do it.  But someday, they will.

It's another year that is important for me to document. It's a moment you can never have only happens once. Then it becomes a precious memory.

I love this 'PRESS PAUSE' sentiment from the card kit Favorite Things Edition.  I have combined two PL Kits that I've used before into this layout.  The other kit is Heidi Swapp's Gold Foil.  So much prettiness in both kits.  I love mixing and matching all of these Project Life Kits. So much fun.

I love to cut up a lot of the cards and layer them onto other cards for more of a 'color' punch.

Still have so many more photos to process. Can't wait to play with them and create more albums.

Wishing you all a fantastic week!
