I spent January 1st this year creating our 2012 family photo collage.
I know, like with kids is always exciting, right? This year I did a few more pics of the grandparents, my mom and dad each with the baby, my grandma with my 5 year old...
Each year I try to just get a quick essence of what the year was. Was it like 2011 with a trip to Israel for my husband and I and Disneyland with the kids? Or 2010 when my sister got married so we have a ton of those pictures up.
I find these are some of my favorite ways to remember each year. We hang them in our upstairs loft with our other yearly photo collages, but here is my 5 year old modeling this year's collage.
Then she wanted to make her own. So we took the Toilet Paper art canvas from her room, and I let her do whatever she wanted. I'm guessing she is in love with her baby sister since that's the focus of her collage. Plus I love the shot of the rainbow cake pops there from our 1 year old's rainbow birthday party.
How do you commemorate each year?
