* watching the kids entertaining each other

Mummy is loving

* the PicFx app for photo editing
* Galaxy Cookie Crumble
* the beautiful girl's tickle giggle

The beautiful boy is loving
* pressing the flush on the toilet
* The Gruffalo's Child on DVD
* toast and jam or toast and marmite
* his sister
* climbing and being upside down

The beautiful girl is loving
* trying to sit up
* her Skwish toy
* smiling at her brother
* chewing her fingers
* naked kicking after bath time



My challenge for 2013 is to get a family photo every single month.
Photos of us as a family are pretty thin on the ground
and this makes me really sad.
Especially as I know it will be photos of us all together
which we will treasure the most in passing years.

Putting the photos on my blog is a good incentive to keep me committed to it.
And after mentioning my plans to some other people
it seemed that there are a lot of parents out there
who also want to take more family photos.
So I decided to invite some other lovely photo bloggers along for the ride,
and on the final day of each month we will be sharing the photos we got
and a little bit about what our family has been up to that month.


And just to bring a little bit more fun to the party,
we will be sending you around in a little circle
so that you get to see what January looked like for seven different families.
We hope you'll enjoy being sent from blog to blog
and getting to hopefully meet some new people
and enjoy some lovely photos and blogs along the way.
So when you've been through all seven
and ended up back where you started,
why not link up your own family photo.

I'm sending you off to visit Becky and her lovely family at The Ar-Blog,
go and check out her blog;
it's utterly charming and packed full of gorgeous photos.
If it isn't already on your regular reads list then it really should be.


So, you've seen Me and Mine
now we want to see you and yours . . .

    1. It's just too easy to stay behind the camera and photograph the children. And I know they'll want to see our terrible hair dos and atrocious fashion sense in years to come. x

  10. I LOVE this! I managed to get a family shot of us at the beginning of the new year and was so pleased. I think I might have to challenge myself too. I am SO bad of getting behind the camera!

      I tend to hide behind the camera A LOT! And I just felt like it was time to change that. x
