Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, January 6th

Today's theme is Memory. If you want to go see others' memory pictures, click here. If you want to join in click here.

I'm still in a Christmassy mood---this is my memory of Christmas. As I set up all my kids' presents, I wanted them to have that same feeling I remembered from my childhood. That overwhelmed feeling, a feeling like nothing else could be as wonderful as getting these presents this morning.
This picture is me, 1975, and I would have been 4 and a half. I am so glad my parents took this picture---to me, it sums up all my happy, sleepy Christmas morning feelings!
On a Photo Train of Thought, I am going to start a seperate blog for "Project 365." It's a picture a day for a year. I am thinking I won't post every day, but I will take pictures every day and try to update on my Mondays and Fridays (or Saturdays, like today). Unfortunately, I did not hear about this until Jan. 3rd, and double sad, I did not take any pictures on Jan. 1st or 2nd. So my project is 363 or maybe 365 through Jan. 2nd, 2008. Whatever! I'll give a link and put that on my sidebar when I get ready. And oh boy, are my pictures so far exciting! ha! Very not exciting. But each picture is supposed to represent the day somehow, and I am not afraid to set up pictures to make it represenative of my day.
I am checking off daily Bible reading and exercising for the year, too. So far, I have been reading every day except yesterday (no excuse!), and I have exercised 4 times this calendar week---and I still might do somehting today. I am staying on track so far!

  • We really have to be thankful to our parents for having the patience in taking pictures of us when we were all young. We benefit from these photos now. We won't have nothing to reminisce if there weren't photos.
    Thanks for passing by.

  • I hate to disagree but you had to be 5 and a half in this picture because we did not move into this house until 1975 in March. I like this picture also you were so excited about what we had bought that year (we were so poor then). thanks for the picture of me graduating. It was really exciting that you all got to come and see it!!

  • I thought I got that bike when I was 5, but I had labeled that photo in the computer as Dec. 1975. And I was 4.5 in Dec. 1975. So was it 1976? At any rate, I still think it's the best Christmas picture.

  • OK So I really like the picture. I like your new avatar as well. I changed mine too.
    Here is a link to Jim Brandenburg's website.
    He took one picture a day in 1994. He is a photographer for National Geographic. The book of them is called Chased by the Light. I saw this book when I worked at the photography studio. I thought it was so amazing. anyway... I just remembered it when I saw that you were going to take a picture a day to capture 365 days.

  • Hi Jenny. Sorry if I'm dropping in a little late but I would like to thank you for visiting my blog. It's nice that your sister and I have the same name.

    Thanks for sharing that beautiful memory. I also have fond memories of Christmas when I was a young girl. I try my best to make my son as happy as I was back then or possibly happier.

    See you on the next photo hunt.
