photo a day: day 1

I’m going to post one photo of my family or a portion of our little world each day during the month of December. Even though this will take effort it is kind of like a Christmas present to myself because of the fact that I will have sweet pictures of life with my family. Who knows, maybe I’ll make a book of them. :)  My goal will be for most of the pictures to have been taken that particular day, capturing life. But there may be times when the pictures might be from a week ago or two pictures from the same day if that’s what works with life at that time. And to help you all I will post my manual settings with the pictures as well. Anyone wanna join me in taking one photo a day? If so, make a comment below, even post a link to your blog if you have one, and let’s encourage each other.  :)
