Family Yearbook Challenge 2009 - Week 6

Did you get caught up?? If not or if you're new click HERE and get some stories and photos organized! I can't believe February 2009 is almost over! We've had our share of cool days in Florida, and I've loved every second of it...but I'm really looking forward to Spring. Spring...not so much the sticky summer...but I love the beach so I guess I'm in a good place.

Homework Feb 23 - 28:

1. Plan to have a family picture taken and get it done by the end of March. If you have kids get a family picture taken with them. If you don't have kids, plan to take a sweet picture w/ your man. Maybe plan for an outdoor picture, somewhere that has some meaning or history for you. You may want a professional or just have a friend that can work a camera take the pictures for you. But whatever you do, don't do the timer thing or have your hubby hold the camera out with his long arm and try and take the doesn't me!

2. Describe your weekends. What do you like to do in your weekend time alone, as a family? What do your children do on the weekends? Sleepovers? Movies? Sunday Dinners? Sports? Yard work? Whatever it is, tell about it. What fills up your weekends?

3. Monthly Events: Birthdays, Anniversaries, Births, Deaths, etc.

Let these questions prompt you into writing whatever comes to your mind.

Be Creative! Let the stories flow....

After you're done collecting this information and it's typed into a Word doc, save it in your FYB_2009 folder under February and name it Feb 23-28.

Now COPY and paste any photos that you have that go with these events and questions into the January folder. If you'd like to rename the photos you can with Feb 1, Feb 2, Feb 3, and so on and so on. If you have any memorabilia that is NOT digital, scan and save as a jpg. minimum 300 dpi to your February, named and labeled.

There is no WRONG way to do this challenge, except to not do it at all...
