February 365, ABC's

February 365, ABC's, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Here is my mosaic for the month. I switched around a few of my pictures because I changed my mind on the favorites and I wanted them all to be centered around my ABC theme.

Now onto making the book. It will probably take me a little while since I barely find time to take pictures/edit and upload to the internet. Plus I want to retake some pictures.

2 months down, 10 more to go :)

This is a fake yawn that cost me 3 pieces of candy to open his mouth and shut his eyes! And he still wouldn't look in my direction, ah the joy of 2 years old!

W is for White Winter Wonderland.

Perfect timing for our biggest snow storm of the year :)

more 55

Here is Ralph to help show how much snow we got.

He is so furry right now that the snow sticks to him a forms little snowballs around his legs. It is pretty funny to watch him walk, and when we go inside M chases him around saying "Mom I help get Ralph's snow balls off!"

Day 46

Day 46, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Hubby had the day off of work so we decided to go exploring since it was above freezing :) We haven't had hardly any snow in upstate NY (very strange) but it has been quite cold. This is shot at the river close to my house. There were HUGE chucks of ice that came up to shore. Pretty cool. My little man and hubby had a fun time exploring.

If you have been following me I have been doing and ABC theme for the month of February to make a book for my son. Today is supposed to be N (I still took them, they are below) But I am going to use this as my shot for the day, because I don't think I will be able to get back there (plus I can use this for I is for ice!)

Day 46 more ice

Here are a couple more shots of the ice at the river.

Day 46 N's

I didn't choose an "N" theme for my shot of the day, but I still took them, and here they are!

N is for Nutella! yummmmmy

(nail overload coming up!)

N is for nails.... ( I really like the bokeh in this one!)

Nails holding nails, get it?

And some fun!

M is for Mommy and Mason.

I had some pictures that were in better focus, but I like in this one that I can see the smile in his eyes :)

If you have been following the blog you will know that Sunday's are crazy busy so I couldn't take all the pictures I wanted. Good thing I still have 325 days to make up for it!


Only 320 days left! Wow it is really sad that I was a math major in college.

Day 40

Day 40, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Today I was planning on taking a picture of "H" things per my abc goal for this month:

And this is as far as I got. H is for heart. Or close enough for today :)

She might not look it in this picture, but my little cherub has been sick for the last week or so, thus the lack in picture taking.

G is for green grapes.

I am getting so excited about this book for M.

Any suggestions on getting a book made? I have heard of shutterfly and blurb, but I was wondering if anyone has actually used them.

Day 39 alternate

G is also for grapefruit.

At a later date I am going to take some picture of M's toy giraffe, but I am trying to spend less time taking pictures/editing so I can focus more on the kids.

Day 38

F is for feet.

Originally out of the camera this was not my favorite. The one below was. After a little cropping and B&W, it quickly became my favorite. I love her little mouth in the background.

This doesn't quite fit with the uniformity of the abc book for my son. So I will probably take a different picture later that better matches.

Sundays are crazy and I hardly have time to take pictures while it is light out :)

Day 38 second place

Day 38 second place, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

This was my second place choice. I love that she will seriously chew on anything close to her :)

Day 38 F is for family

Here is a little self timer fun. We didn't have much time before Danny had to leave for church, but this is what we got! I am definitely going to try this again :)

My favorite
