Where's Mom?! 10/52 Photos Of Me!!

Are you a mom? Are you missing from the picture? Most moms I know are, but here is a great meme that gets us moms out from behind the lens and into the spotlight! Carin from Forever in Blue Jeans is the hostess for this year long picture project! It is lots of fun and just think, at the end of the year, you will have at least 52 pictures with YOU in them! It can be scary, but com'on...give it a try! It's easy, all you have to do is hand over the camera! And the best part is, you can jump in whenever; for me, this is my 10th week!

These photos are of me and Brendan working on his April book report. Every month he is assigned a book report with a different genre and a unique style...this month the genre was Folktale and the style was a scrapbook page. H.E.L.L.O. I heart scrapbooking!! Brendan's eyes were so wide with excitement when I brought out all of my tools! We sat down and read the folktale he choose, The 3 Little Javelinas, which is an adaptation of the 3 Little Pigs, and got to work!
Photos courtesy of daddy.

In the pics, it looks like I was doing all the work, BUT we worked on it together with Brendan using as many of my tools as I would allow!! He had a lot of say in where things went and was pictures we used as well as the color combination! He did most of the writing too!The finished report...Great Job Bren!!

(and shush...but his teacher already told me that he got 100%!!)


It's so easy...give someone else the camera, say cheese and join the fun!

Great project for you two to do!

I can't even think of how far behind I am in scrapbooking. I have at least 900 pictures from our wedding over a year ago that I haven't even looked at. Plus all the pictures I've taken since.

Wow what an awesome Mom to share scrapbooking supplies!
Looks like a great report!

How fun to scrapbook together. I am looking forward to that. Right now Hazy would just eat everything or throw it or rip it and Fish would rather be outside or riding on his bike. :)

How great are those pictures! Nothing like a school project to bring mom and the kids together, and I love your work station...the bed! We use to use our bed all the time when our kiddos were smaller for little things...even playing games. Fun pictures this week.

1st- Great Picture
2nd- Cute Book, my boys love it.
3rd- You are daring to SB with children. I just battled that last week with my oldest. He has his own book now and loves it...it is his 'independent' time. LOL.
