Capturing the moment!

I love my camera....so much so, that whenever I go anywhere, I take at least 20 photo's of the moment, as a reminder. I wonder if in the far distant future, when my kids are old enough to appreciate my obsession, if they will in fact relate to or have any inclination at all to open CD #1001 marked....{September 2007...kids in pool}. Why is it again, that we take so many photographs? Is it for us or for them? I don't know I've forgotten, do you know perhaps? I know I have really good intentions about attempting to try & scrap them all, but the reality is, I will NEVER be able to do that even if I had 3 sets of arms & 24hrs in a day to do it in. There are just too many.
In a moment of {in}sanity I did think I'd go through them all & throw away most of them, only keeping the perfect shots that epitomize the memory. I opened the first file, selected the ones for deleting......my finger sat poised over that delete button for what seemed like forever......I began to perspire under the immense pressure of my imminent action......I couldn't do it, I just couldn't! So the CD's of photographs will continue to accumulate......Hahaha! I'm such a pixel horder!

I just hope Cas & Max actually look at them in the future! Otherwise I will really have some serious time management issues to explain to the Lord one day!

Talking about capturing the moment....these are why I love photographing my family.....

Just some visual snippets of our life.....hope you like them as much as I do.
Cheers for now!
