Aloha!


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

THIS WEEKS QUESTION:

I just got the kids school photos yesterday. I always place them in the same photo frame, just putting the newest on top and keeping the older ones behind.

Who else does this?

We are terrible at buying school pics each year...but when we get them, we instead put them in frames beside each other and we can see how they have changed every few years...however my friends parents used to do what you do.
Have a super friday?
Any plans for Thanksgiving

I plan to do this...but I never got around to buying a frame for last year's photo (kindergarten)! I think I'll buy two this time, and each year I can cover up whichever photo is older with a new one.

Years ago I found this album that holds school pictures from every year. It's kind of neat.

I do that sometimes until the frame gets full then I put the old ones in a scrapbook. :)

i'v never thought of it before.. but actually i think its a grand idea.. that way if you wanna compare them all.. there they all are!

I always frame the newest one and put it over the piano in a pretty frame thats there...and the old ones I put in a frame in the hallway.

Also I have started scanning them each and uploading to snapfish and when they are all grown up I'm going to order an album of them, along with all their sports photos too!
Thats my future project, LOL

I'm not quite to buying school photos yet. But, I do put the newest picture I have over the previous one. I really enjoy going back (every time I update the frames) and looking at how big my boys are getting!

Vicki said...

I've never thought of that but it's a great idea!

We wind up sending most of them in Christmas cards. The one we keep goes in an album.
Great question.

I think I always took the older ones out and put them in an album. Geez, I'm already starting to forget!

Nina said...

I have not done this but one of the guys I work with does this and his kids are in college now. It is pretty cool to look back at all the past pictures right their in one place.

MommyAmy said...

Yup, we do this too. Or plan to anyway. :)

Annie said...

I do this with our family photos! It is a great idea I think :)

Thom said...

I keep them all showing on another picture frame :)

Pinaymama said...

I always do the same thing...especially when I feel so lazy to put them back on the photo album..

Laura said...

My mom.

JamericanSpice said...

That sounds like a good idea, but I don't yet do this.

How do you get frames to hang on your wall? Are they special frames or just regular ones that would sit on a desk?

Pam, when my oldest was in kindergarten, a friend gave me a picture frame that was a school bus and had windows for each year's pictures. I have them in the guest room and all twelve years are there in one frame. I just love it. In fact, I'm going in there right now and look at those beautiful girls.

~hippo hugs~

Tara said...

lol.. that is funny. I just buy new frames. My husband just asked me yesterday if we should take down all our pictures and put new ones in.. I was like "are you kidding me?" lol We have a entire wall of 8x10 pictures no way am I taking them down to replace the pictures! lol

I totally do - well not school pictures but pictures. Every year we get new pictures taken and I put the new ones in front and leave the old ones in there - I love looking at the other pictures when I replace them.
