12 of 12 - it's about time, literally

I did something a little different this 12-of-12, to get myself motivated.  Instead of taking pictures of different things we did, foods we ate, places we went, and otherwise, I took pictures of the times that all these certain things occurred.  And I did each picture using a different time piece.  I had no idea we had so many time-telling devices in our home-and I didn't even have to use Danny's cell or either of the alarm clocks in the boys' rooms.  So, although it may seem a little boring, I was actually kind of intrigued by the idea and I think the pictures will make an interesting scrapbook page.  Check out Susan's 12-of-12 info page here.

The time I rolled out of bed.  I'd been up late scrapbooking and watching Austin Powers movies so I actually slept in a little this fine Sunday morning. (taken on my alarm clock)

 

DSCF1195

The time the boys ate breakfast. (taken on the microwave clock)

 

DSCF1200

The time of our first (and I think only) telephone call of the day.  (taken on the phone's clock)

 

DSCF1203

The time we ate lunch. (taken on our kitchen clock)

 

DSCF1204

The time the boys got into the bathtub to get ready for church. (taken on my bedroom's wall clock)

 

DSCF1207

The time we left for church. (taken on our dirty dirty car console clock)

 

DSCF1208

The time we got back from church. (taken on my cell phone's clock and incidentally, this counts-sorta-as my self-portrait for this challenge)

 

DSCF1213

The time we left for Aunt Becky's house for dinner. (taken on the decorative clock in my bedroom-and now that I look at it, I think it must be a good 5 minutes slow)

 

DSCF1214

The time we ate yummy dinner at Aunt Becky's. (taken on Danny's dirty wrist watch)

 

DSCF1225

The time we got home from Aunt Becky's. (taken on our car stereo clock)

 

DSCF1227

The time the 5 boys went to bed (we borrowed 2 of our nephews to stay overnight). (taken on the television display clock)

 

DSCF1228

The time Dan and I went to bed-and probably the kids too as they were pretty noisy for about an hour after we put them down.  (taken on our computer clock)

 

So there you have it.  Anyone else do 12 of 12 this month?

You look really good in that self portrait one! (Even though it's just a camera phone pic). Your eyebrows look good.

Very cool. I don't know if we have 12 clocks in our house. I'll have to start scoping things out. Maybe I can do one.
