Layout: "Rainbows & Raindrops"

This is the 2011 update page for the family album about Christian and Caleb. They are growing up way too fast!

Layout: "52 of my Most Favorite Things"

Since there are so few photos of me or even anything about ME, I decided to make a layout about my favorite things at this point in my life. It will be fun to look at in the years to come - and hopefully my kids will enjoy it, too!

Layout: "Ticket to Ride (family)"

This is the layout of our trip to Del Grosso's for the family album. The journalling was tough for me, because I didn't want to sugar coat the day, saying how perfect it was - because it wasn't. Caleb refused to come with us, saying it would be too cold to get in the water (it wasn't) so he didn't want to come at all - he went to his dad's house instead. Duane had an attitude for most of the day because Logan got scared on the Tilt A Whirl with me and Abigail, yelling "I'm done, I'm done, I'm done" during the entire ride. He was perfectly safe and there wasn't anything I could do about it and it was pretty funny. Duane didn't appreciate my sense of humor so he ignored me and made rude comments the rest of the day, making it next to impossible for me to spend more time with the little ones. I tried to make the best of it with the older kids and still enjoyed spending time with them. I decided to include all this in the journalling. I think it makes for a much more meaningful layout. Because we all know that not everything worth remembering is perfect.

Layout: "Ticket to Ride"

We took the kids to Del Grossos last month. Gabriel and Christian had a blast on lots of rides and really loved the water park. Abigail hung out with me a lot and I enjoyed getting to go on a bunch of rides with her. She even talked me into going on the Free Fall - which I did NOT enjoy. I kept my eyes closed the entire time. Never again. Thurman and Logan had a great time going on all the kiddie rides - I even talked them into going on the Tilt A Whirl (one of my faves). Thurman loved it and even went on a 2nd time. Logan, however, did not like it so much. He yelled "I'm done, I'm done, I'm done!" the entire time. Abigail and I laughed like lunatics! (Okay, it's not like I could get him off the ride anyway and he was of course, perfectly safe.) Duane - who has no sense of humor - didn't appreciate our having a laugh at Logan's expense. Unfortunately, his attitude remained the rest of the day. However, I still enjoyed my time with the kids!
