Prue 52 Weeks 1-4 | Personal Portraits

We have been taking photos of Prue everyday for the past 2 years.  This is January was the start of the 3rd year we will have a photo of Prue everyday.  Drew is the one who is in charge of this project.  I occasionally help out and take the photos, but it is mostly Drew.  He is the one that selects the photo for the day and edits most of them.

You can find past years photos on Drew & Prue’s flickr accounts.  The first year we create a calendar using all of the images (each month was the images from the past year).  You can see those here.

This year I created 2 videos using animoto, they were posted on the blog.  You can find them here.

Drew has decided to upload the photos to his flickr account as a week’s worth of images.  He usually uploads them on Sundays (I think that is the correct date, though I don’t know for sure).  He mentioned to me that it would be cool to pick one fave image each week and blog it.  Here are the images from the first 4 weeks.

365 Days of Prue

This project truly is a labor of love on Drew’s part, though I did help out here and there.  We took a photo of Prue everyday for the entire year.  Enjoy the 2 videos I made (all those images in one video is way too many so I decided to split them into 2).

The First Half of 2010

The Second Half of 2010

I have to put a disclaimer and say that this isn’t every single photo (though it is close) I tried to find the longest songs and still not every image fit. I’ve redone the videos several times, I think this is as good as it gets!

Here is the last photo of 2010 (that didn’t make it into the video)

Making Gingerbread Houses | Personal

I decided on Monday that we were going to make Gingerbread Houses so on the hunt I went looking for a kit.  Of course Target was my first stop, luckily it was also my only stop.  If you are looking for kits, definitely go check out Target.  They had small houses that were already put together so all you had to do was decorate, they also had a gingerbread train kit.  I decided on the village.  My thought process was Prue could make & decorate her own and I could decorate some too without her help. :)

Decorating went from bad to good.  I should have put the houses together before Prue was around.  She went from super excited to decorate them to a complete break down because I wasn’t letting her decorate while I was putting them together.  Finally she recovered and stopped crying and we were able to decorate.  Drew helped Prue while I was decorating my own. I wanted to be really patient and decorate my house, but that didn’t happen.  I have more respect for bakeries that do gingerbread houses with all the little details.

We have a little village but I don’t know how long they will last, Prue has been picking at them all day today.  As soon as we came downstairs this morning she went right to them.  I came out of the bathroom to find her gripping onto one of the houses.  She had eaten the candy off the roof of the house and took a bite out of it.  Later today she asked me if I had to “peepee”?  I didn’t understand at first why she was asking me, but then I realized she was staring at the gingerbread houses and wanted me to leave so she could sneak a bite.
