birthdays and their photos
I LOVE planning birthday parties. I am already throwing ideas around for Isaac's (in May) and Andrew's (in June) celebrations. I also love preparing for the party, though not as much as planning for one. And I really like the party itself. But, I usually don't like the photos from the party.
I'm usually too busy to remember to get any good photos. And we had both parties indoor last year, which just doesn't make for good shots. I often ask Dave to get to a few pictures, but he insists on using the flash (gasp!) and often goes for the goofy shots. Anyway, after all that planning and prepping, I usually sit down at the computer after the party and wish we had gotten some better photos. Silly right? I mean, shouldn't it be all about the event and the memories? not the photos?
So, I usually put off putting together scrapbook pages of birthday parties. I do want birthday parties represented in the scrapbooks, but I usually don't feel motivated to do it.
Anyway, yesterday I was struck with a good idea (that I saw someone else do) and everything came right together. I LOVE that!
Birthday party, remembered. ;)
