Bowling…good times!

Click on photo for larger version. Journaling: This was our first time bowling with E*** for sure, and we’re pretty sure with G***, too. We laughed, cheered and had a great time as the kids used all of their might to launch the six-pound ball toward the pins what seemed like a mile away. E***’s

A page to pass the time

Things aren't looking to quiet down soon enough around here, so I thought I'd post a recent layout to pass the time.   These photos were taken back in December 2007. (I've been revisiting some old photos lately.) G & E used to love getting buried in a mound of stuffed animals. I love the

Here is a long-overdue spread! I have been wanting to scrap these pictures for some time, but the thought of weeding through dozens of photos from this day held me back. I finally got over that, though, and made the plunge. This page took me two nights, only because my computer crashed mid-layout last night.

10 years!

Ten years ago today, we did this: (My apologies to Madeline Price, the photographer, who retired a while back. Don't know how to get a hold of her for permission, so I'm saying a prayer she won't mind that I posted this!) Anyway, this is now — or at least, it's what we looked like

A little bit of chaos

The lower photo on this layout just makes me laugh. It is a pretty clear representation of the chaos that ensues when you mix five young kids, two adults, four animals (at the time) and a small space. (This was last year. When we get together now, there are four kids and five animals!) I'll
