Finally Done!

After I downloaded, organized, and captioned all of our pictures from the cruise onto Snapfish, I ordered them. There are a lot of people who either don't have the internet or don't have the patience to wait for all of those pictures to download, so I knew that I was going to have to make albums.

I received the box of pictures about 2-3 weeks ago, and it has been lingering in our kitchen ever since. There were times when I wanted to put it somewhere else to rid us of the eye-sore (I CAN NOT stand clutter! - which I know will dwindle once we start having kids), but I kept it out as a constant reminder of what I had to eventually tackle.

And I finally did it - this weekend. Surprisingly, I only needed 2 albums. The large one holds all of the pictures from the cruise, while the small one holds the pictures from the hometowns. I even made little 4x6 cards to separate each port - indicating the date, port of call, and excursion - along with a description of what we did on each. I know, I sound a little too obsessive, but I don't want people to look at them and ask "Where is this?" and "When were you there?" when they flip every page.

Now I am considering even labeling each picture as I did on Snapfish. John says that I am nuts for even thinking it - but I am already forgetting names of the some of the churches and such.

What do you guys think?

I'm really impressed that you're this far along. All we've done is upload our Europe pics onto the computer.
