I am using the digital kit on shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly Cobalt kit HERE. I will hopefully be posting my 2013 pages soon.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week) -
Saturday - Today we took Maddie to get her 3rd birthday photos taken at JCPenney's. I was very disappointed as, Tiffany, our favorite photographer was out on leave for back surgery. The girl substituting for her did a terrible job and setting up the photos. We took all of the Dora characters we created out of plywood and she didn't do anything with them. She didn't even get a single photo, that wasn't blurry, of Maddie holding up three fingers. I was very upset and can't wait for Tiffany to return. This evening we went to the Plano Balloon Festival. It was our first time and there were a million people out for the Saturday night launch. Maddie loved the kids crafts and huge slides. She even got in trouble for climbing back up and going down again without paying another ticket. When the balloons began to fill for takeoff, we found a spot on the grassy hillside with a view of the launch area. One of the vendors gave Maddie a box of Nerds, so she was perfectly content to sit and eat one nerd at a time. There was a skydiver who jumped out of the first balloon. The first balloons to take off were amazing; unfortunately, those were the only to launch. The winds picked up and they closed down the launch site. I think next year we will be attending the 6am launch.
Maddie has figured out how to access the camera on our phones and take photos. We often find random photos like these below.
Monday - Maddie had fun at school today doing an apple art project and practicing her numbers. After school, Maddie was super excited to throw on her pirate costume and make me "walk the plank." At gymnastics today Maddie practiced her back roll and following Coach's directions. She has been struggling a lot with listening to Coach and tends to run all over the place, especially when they have 12-16 kids in the class.
