#wordlessWednesday: 2012 holiday moments

One of my goals for 2012 was to take pictures daily. I wanted to remember more of the daily moments of our lives, not just the highlights. Despite having some camera issues this fall, I’ve done a pretty good job of capturing more moments. Getting an iPhone4 this summer also helped me document more moments. It’s so easy to pick up the iPhone and grab a few shots and post them for posterity to Instragram (and yes, I haven’t left Instagram).

This year, I am continuing my daily challenge with the help of photo prompts from A Grande Life. I’m also picking up the video camera more. I want to hold to that funny way my 7 year old still stays the word breakfast. I want to capture the cuteness and occasional drama of my 4 year old even if it’s only 30 seconds of life.

All this to say – here are some moments from the 2012 holidays.

Great one! It is still so “cool” to me that taking pictures is completely free (once you have a camera that is). What a paradigm shift! Remember when we paid for film and developing…and THEN got to see the image. Our kids have no clue! Good luck with this!

I put it into my paper blogging calendar, though I might put it into my Google calendar, too and do reminders.
