52 of 52!!!!!!!!

Forever In Blue Jeans

Family 1-1

We made it!!!! 52 weeks, what an accomplishment! This picture here is the one I used for our Christmas card. I think I'm still in shock everyone is looking at the camera, smiling and looking good.

On the card it says "Have your self a merry little Christmas".... please do!

And YES! In some form I will continue with 52 Weeks, with a slight variation. So many have started out just recently and what an accomplishment to make it to 52 of 52! You can do it! It's so important for your family memories!

********************52 Weeks********************
52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. We are always the ones behind the camera, this is YOUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. We are glad you are joining this challenge. More importantly your family will really enjoy having you in the picture. Thanks for playing along! Oh, you can just jump in now with 1 of 52, you're not getting off that easy! Now go take a picture!

I debated on wether or not to put up the Linky but I'm going to go ahead and put it up. I'm pretty sure I won't make all of the rounds today, but perhaps within a couple of days when it slows down a bit. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Awesome feeling, huh! Thank you SO much for starting this challenge...I have loved every minute of it, and I honestly don't know what I am going to do with my Thursdays next year.

I had scrolled down to read your post that I had missed...your middle boy I believe broke everyone's heart, but Carin you handled it so perfectly. You are an amazing mommy, wife, daughter...woman!

Dear Congratulated Carin,
That is a stunning picture cbghgll'
of your family. It must feel amzing to have reached your goal and to have inspired others to work toward theirs. I have to admit that I didn't take the challenge because somehow I ended up in a family of photographers... my mom, my aunts, my cousins, all my siblings, my hubby and my children. They all grab my camera or tote around their own, and I usually end-up in more shots that I wish to be in. I confess to weeding out more than a few of the less than flattering ones.

I'm so glad you reached your goal! I plan to start it next week. Great idea and one that I really need to do. I'm so bad about not wanting to have my photo taken. I'd rather wait until I lose weight or my hair looks good. I need to stop all of that and just enjoy life and show myself having fun, not just documenting the fun. Merry Christmas!

Kim said...

Thank you for doing this!

Great family photo too!

Happy New Year!
