Scrappy Saturday 1/7/2012
I have been doing a bit of scrapping this week – doing some simpler layouts to get our stories down and to help clear out my boxful of memories to be shared. My boys tend to like this style better that focuses on their photos and stories more than ones that I agonize over placement forever, and try to really embellish up, so I like to balance between the two - some for them, some for me.
Christmas with my Dad and my Brother’s family and assorted other family/friends. It was great to get together with them, because we don’t do it nearly often enough.
Thanks to the girls at Sweet Shoppe, I found a fun treat for the boys this Christmas Eve – a trip on the ‘Baldwin Express’ for Christmas Eve. They LOVED it.
Our Christmas morning at home. We love having some of our own traditions to celebrate and waking up to our tree and love the things that we do together, but Christmas sure is lonely without getting to see our families. We love that we can switch out schedules and see each of them every other year.
The following layouts are for each of the boys to have their own accomplishment recorded. The board breaking day at our house was met with much trepidation, lots of courage wrangling, and some pretty proud boys when it was all done.
I’ll probably be scrapping again tonight as we have Boy Night Part II happening after last night’s butchered attempt (don’t worry – I’ll be blogging it LOL). I’m happy to get them another shot at making their weekend great with Daddy.
