How are we going to choose?

*This post has been coming for a week!*

Last Sunday we met Jenty (aka Jeanette) at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens for our much anticipated photo shoot.

We had so much fun.  It took Aaron a little while to warm up but once he had he was so into it.  He ran, jumped, threw leaves, demanded attention, took Jeanette’s hand and led her around and just had an absolute ball.

The sneak peek Jeannette put up on her blog is amazing, I can barely choose my favourites from those ones, how in heavens name am I supposed to choose from the full batch we will be getting?

Renewal of an old project

When we moved into our house just under 4 years ago I had great plans for the one red wall in our dining room.

I envisioned tons of family photos vying for space, old memories jostling for position with new memories, all held together by a common thread, in this case it would be the frames, all black or silver.

Just under 4 years down the line this is what that wall looks like…

Im ashamed to say it is still bare.

This is what I received for my birthday last year and the year before…

My mission is to get those frames filled with photos and onto that wall!

I am thinking of making all the photos a sepia/antique look to further bring them all together.  There will be my parents and Pauls parents wedding photos, our wedding photos, pics of Aaron, us as a family, our brothers and sisters and grandparents.

I also want to get some more silver frames.

Also, part of the plan is to have a family shoot done by Jenty sometime this year, I especially want to put her photos into the frame that says “DAD MOM ME”.

I cant wait to get going on this!

Made my mark!

Today I voted.  Paul got up ridiculously early and got to the voting station at 6:45.  The queue was already round the conrer.  At 8am Aletta came in to look after Aaron (she is going this afternoon) and I left to join Paul in the line.  I got there at about 8:15 and we had another 40 min wait until we reached the front.

Everyone was in a good mood despite the freezing cold weather.  Paul took some photos, you can see one or two of them here and here.

I am proud to have voted.  So, all South Africans, get out there and make your mark!!
