Mamatography: A 365 Day Photography Project. At least one picture per day of what you did that day.
Here we are: it's the last full week of Mamatography! It has been a long year filled with challenges I could never have imagined, but I'm so glad that I documented it as we went along. I just ordered a photo book from Shutterfly of some of the pictures (98 to be exact) from this year. Now I'll have something physical to remember it all by!*
Sunday, we had church then our Christmas exchange at my grandma's house. I forgot to take pictures there, but here's a blurry one Isaiah wanted to take while we were getting ready for church.
Monday, we had our Christmas with Mama and Papa, and B, N, and my brother-in-law. Isaiah had a blast opening all of his new presents. It was a pretty emotional day for me because it was the first Christmas Eve without Mamaw, and it was always tradition to get pizza from Pizza Oven and open presents with her that night. We kept the pizza tradition, and mom and dad gave all of us one last gift card from Mamaw, so we all know B and I were teary eyed.
Tuesday, we opened presents at home then went to my grandma's house for Christmas Dinner. I was hard pressed to pull Little I away from all his new toys and books long enough to get dressed and leave the house.
Wednesday was a lazy day playing with toys and chilling at home while a blizzard raged around us. Isaiah loved watching out the window between games on his LeapPad.
Mamavation ** (& of course, Bob Harper). I got The Skinny Rules as well as all of Bob's workout DVDs so I've been reading this book and doing a few workouts since they came.
Later Thursday, we cleaned off the car (after a little snowball fight) and headed to my parents to get out of the house before coming home again for dinner.
He had fun just getting snow all over his gloves and shaking them all around to get it off again.
Friday, I had some more of the amazing homemade applesauce that was my gift from my grandma. Then we went to my mom and dad's house for dinner and some quality time.
This morning, Little I watched UmiZoomi on his Leap Pad while I read some more.
Tonight, we played with new toys (like the "tar" from Aunt B), played games on the Wii, and played our new game Uno Moo.

And then, after Isaiah was fast asleep, I watched a guy get arrested for drunkenly walking down the middle of my road yelling profanities at the police.
Yes, I'm that nosy neighbor that will take pictures of these kinds of things. Lol
