A New Year….A New Blog

It’s true what they say about having kids.  With the first you remember, document and scrapbook everything.  At almost 8 years old, I can still tell you exactly what time Annagrace was born.  How much she weighed and how long she was.

With Madalyn,well I remember her weight and the time she was born.

Layla was born 2 months ago and I had to look up the time of her birth today because I forgot.

The same goes with scrapbooking.  Annagrace has beautiful books to document her first 4 years of life.  Then came Madalyn and according to my scrapbooks, she is stuck at about 6 months old.  The rate I am going, I’ll be lucky if Layla ever has a scrapbook at all. So I have decided to change my philosphy on scrapbooking.

I am going to do a blog scrapbook this year.   Did you know you can print your blog?  I have known this for awhile but have never taken the time to research it.  I have decided that this year–2010–I will blog about our family more.  I’ll blog about the kids more and what they are doing.  I’ll take (and post!) even more photos.  And at the end of the year I will have the blog printed x 3 and given to each child.  If this goes well then I’ll continue to do this each year and when they are 18 and move out they will have a book documenting every year of their lives.

I’m excited about it.  I still love scrapbooking.  And I will still do special scrapbooking projects.  But honestly between having 3 kids, working (soon to be full-time again) and homeschooling there just isn’t enough time in the day to keep up with it all.

So look out for changes around here.  I am considering starting a new separate blog just for the kids stuff.  Or keeping this blog up and running but change my focus.  Not sure yet.  This blog started as a way to keep me accountable regarding my fianances and saving money but it has switched focus and is now more or less a family blog .

I do want to try my best this year to blog something everyday.  Even if it is just a little blurb about what we did that day.  Some things may seem boring now but in 20 years it will be neat to go back and read about how we spent our time in the year 2010!

    What site are you using to print your blog? The one I looked at could only fit about 2 months into a book for $40…not happening! And I don’t even write every day…Let me know what you find!
