Witnessing history

I am just in awe of the moment I have just witnessed. Senator Barack Obama has been officially projected to be the next president of the United States of America. It helps that I voted for him and was decided on him for the past several months. But whether you voted for him or not, we have just been a part of history. We as a country have voted the first African-American into the presidency. We have made a choice for change in a troubled time in our economic and foreign affairs history. And I am excited to see what comes.

OK, I don't want to get into too much politics here, but this was a history-making moment, and I wanted to record it for my personal memories down the road. Wow. Just in awe. Hearing the crowds cheer, hearing John McCain's concession speech, and now waiting for Barack Obama's victory speech…just a great moment.

Anyway, while I've been listening to the election coverage tonight, I have been organizing photos and doing a little digital scrapbooking. So here's my layout of the day. I seem to be in a digi-scrapping spree lately. Don't know why…just in the mood. Enjoy.

2008 10 12 Jump - bouncy house

Journaling (not worth straining your eyes on the layout!):

We can’t go anywhere that has a bouncy house without you two begging to be allowed to jump in. On this particular day, it was the AppleFest at Beasley’s Orchard, but there seems to be a bouncy house lurking around the corner quite often: birthday parties, kids’ fests, the recent Walk for Diabetes and safe trick-or-treating we attended…everywhere! If it doesn’t cost (much), we try to make time and let you burn some energy. You love it. So why not? You might as well jump! • October 12, 2008

By the way, I have no idea who that third kid (far right) is. Just focus on the two on the left, OK?
