It's the fifth of the month so that means TWO Blog Hops in ONE post...
First off is the FAMILY x 12 Blog Hop: A small group of us support each other each month in getting a family photo. If we don't make a point of doing it every month, then too many days, weeks, years pass and we forget to take photos of our families altogether.
Our went to Xi'an for the weekend to see the Terracotta Warriors. Another fun thing to do in the city is rent bikes and ride all the way around the city wall. It takes about an hour. The perfect activity for our family.
Next on the hop today is PATRICIA.
The complete list of FAMILY x 12 participants is below:

Here are a few spreads from last month. I'm still using the greyscale photos I print out using regular paper as holders until I get my prints ordered - usually once a month or so.
In this sleeve I included a business card from our store that delivered some groceries to my home that day. I also brought home a brochure from a restaurant and cut out the back in the shape of a journaling card and wrote on that instead. Then I included a Valentine that a friend gave us to represent the animated Transformer DVDs my youngest has been watching lately.
My favorite photo is the wrinkled toes. His toes were still wrinkled from swim team practice even after he rode the bus home from school!
The logo from the school event came from an email. I saved the image on my computer and printed it out so it would fit on a journaling card. I also love that I took a photo of my son's weekly math homework - learning area & volume.
This week was St. Patrick's Day so I used a lot of green journaling cards this week.
I'll have more spreads next month. Spring is very busy with lots of visitors, travel and kids home for break.
Next on the blog hop is Natalie (I am waiting to get her blog link - will update ASAP).
