For my screensaver on my computer, I have it scroll through all my pictures randomly. I have all my digital pictures on my computer. ALL of them. I have 92 folders, and each folder has probably 300-400 pictures at least. I love watching the screen saver scroll through them all. I love pictures of my kids.
However, I didn't get my first digital camera until December of 2001. By then The Teenager was 8, so I had taken a lot of pictures. I have the negatives in a the garage...somewhere. But those aren't fun to look at. And they don't scroll by on my computer. And it appears that my boys weren't ever babies! LOL
So I have started scanning in all my pictures. I don't even want to know how many I have to do. I can scan 3-4 at a time, but it still takes time. Pull them out of the scrapbook, put them on the scanner, pre-scan, make sure all the borders are correct, scan, take them off the scanner, put them back in the scrapbook, and start over again with a new group. Then I am going to have to go in and rename them so they are in the right order because I am just that OCD.
But I don't care how long it takes. I am going to keep plugging away. Because I want to have them all digitalized. I have one binder done, which is The Doctor's and mine from 1991-1995. As I was scanning, I came across this picture of the cutest little girl.

Yes, that just happens to be me. Aren't I cute? On the left is my Aunt Judy, holding me is my grandma (Mom's mom) and on the right is my other grandma (Dad's mom). I love that I have a picture with me and my grandmas.
So now that my boys have childhood pictures, I will be posting more of them, mainly on the days when I don't have time to write. So enjoy!

I need to scan pictures too. I didn't get my first digital camera until a couple years after Bailee was born! I think it was Christmas of 2005. I need to scan all of her baby pics for sure!
And is that your grandma's real hair!?! The princess looks like you.

LOVE the Hair! :)
Digitizing photos is such a great idea, but such a daunting task. Hooray for you for taking it on a chunk at a time.

Love it. She looks so much like you. What a great memory you have in that picture with the generations. Good luck with the scanning.
