I KNOW That I'm Insane...

Hey all...I feel that I need a disclaimer for how much I blog, so here goes!!!.... I am a little obsessive about documenting every memory! I've been this way for as long as I can remember. I have all of my 'agendas' from the time I was in about 6th grade! I have journal after journal of fun things that I did with friends, dates that I went on with boyfriends, and prayers. In high school and college, I went through a time where I would write down the outfit that I would wear, what I had for dinner, and so on! With Q, I have this blog, some scrapbooks, my 'mom agenda,' his first year calendar, and his baby book! I know that it's ridiculous, but I can't help myself. I had a friend in college that used to comment that I had the most well documented life of anyone that he knew! ... I think that it's true!!!... Anyway, back to the blog...I am totally doing this because of the awesome blog books that I have made once a year! I've gotten really fast at blogging (so don't worry, it's not taking too much time away from my sweet family!) and it's such a great way for me to document all of my memories without scrapbooking (I've let that one go for the moment because I just can't stand the mess with my toddler into everything!) So, if the obsessive blogging irritates you, please feel free to skim the pictures and move on! :) And, know that it's just me...and I don't think it will ever change! ...

All of that to say...there are TONS of new entries below! I think I could have three posts a day...and sometimes I do! Enjoy...if you wish! :)

Keep em' coming! I love staying updated on the Poe Fam. I think it's great how you document everything...a little OCD, but that's why we love you! (so kidding!!) :)

i think it's great! I was always so jealous of your great scrap-books in college. It makes it so fun to go through memories! Quinn will love it when he is older- so will his sweet wife!

I promise I'm not a creepy blogstalker, so don't be too freaked out :)

You crack me up. A little OCD??? I never even noticed that you were like this..maybe we're both a little documentarian-like. Blog away. I love your stories and picks of the fam. By the way, I'm not doing too good of a job with my mug buddy. If you could pray I would start feeling better. See blog for details. Heather

I was TOTALLY kidding about the OCD comment! You're really not. I should have said very "A-type" personality! They're both compliments anyway because regardless, you have great ideas and you get things done! :)

So what I really want to know about is your blog book. Can you give us some details about it? It sounds like a great idea!
