Family Yearbooks & Memory Books

October 9, 2015 in KIDspiration, Motherhood, Uncategorized - 1 Comment - 2 min read

You take a million pictures of your kids, right? Thought so! Read on if you’re looking for a way to organize them all! Or at least all the good ones.

It all started when I got pregnant with my first daughter. I wanted to document everything from pregnancy and beyond! Growing up my mom had photo albums for everything. You remember the ones where you actually had to print out the pictures? Our favorite past time as kids/teens (and even now) was flipping through them all. Then, all through my teen years, I was a scrapbooker. So my love of organizing pictures originated way before the digital years. Now, as you well know, everything is on our iPhones, computers and cameras. One crazy virus and they all could be wiped cleaned. Which is my biggest fear by the way!

I decided to make a digital pregnancy journal so my daughter could someday see just how excited we were to be growing her in my belly! I loved the outcome so much that I decided I needed more of these! From there, I decided to make her an “on the day I was born” book. After countless nights with no sleep the memory of that amazing day when you welcome your new bundle of joy into the world can become such a blur. I made sure to take notes as soon as I could after she was born. I went back to text messages, Facebook posts everything I could and I pieced together that special day all in one book. This is something we can all look back on in the years to come and feel the joy that day brought! I vow to read through that book with her every year on her birthday. It will be our special tradition.

After our first year as a family of 3 I decided to start another tradition. I wanted to start making “Family Yearbooks” of all the exciting adventures from that year. So I made our first yearbook last year and I am currently working on our 2015 edition. It highlights our family vacations, holidays and even some day to day activities. Every book I’ve made is the same size & exterior color. This way we can arrange them on a bookshelf in our master bedroom and they will look cohesive and be easy to sort through. I chose the 8×8 hard cover from Shutterfly but you can make them larger or go through another printing company if you please. This is a project I look forward to working on for many years and hopefully my (now) two girls can enjoy the countless hours of flipping through the yearbooks of their childhood.

    • Today is your day, you’re off and away! Happy first (half) day of Kindergarten to this girl 🎉 SWIPE to see her adorable backpack and lunch box by @twelvelittle 😱🥰 Obligatory first day of school sign photo to come when I can find the box it’s packed in 🤣 #movingprobs // Also, how many times do we all think I’ll cry today (little known fact- I’m born in a family of criers haha!)

    • With all our moving craziness I forgot to share these super cool  @mybtoys Hound Dog Storage Ride-On’s (which we used for the boys’ luggage on our trip last week!) It was so perfect to carry their clothes/essentials and also acted as a toy ride-on for them while we traveled. I can’t say enough good and FUN things about these! I’ll post a link to them in my stories and save it on my highlights as well! #sponsored #travelkids
