I'm making progress on the baby journal. I work on it bit by bit during the week. It doesn't take me long since I have Joshua's journal to work off of (if you compare some of the pages they look very similar). Sometimes I don't have to change much.
Guess what? 2016 is done! Of course...it's almost April! Haha! I'm talking about my monthly Project Life pages! Complete! Finished! Yay!
And now it's time to plan a little bit for 2017's pages. I would like to find a new font to use and change things a little bit, but it won't be much of a change. I like the templates and format I've been using; it's working well for me.
December was a weird month. We moved. It was Christmas-time, but it didn't really feel like it without all of our festive decorations. There was snow--plenty of snow! So that made it festive. And then we were all sick for Christmas. Ugh. Germs go away!
It's so weird looking back at these photos because it was our last weeks at our house in Ketchikan. It was a bittersweet time; much yearned for, but then when it was finally happening it was sad at the same time. We had friends over for Thanksgiving and then BOOM, a few days later the packers were boxing up all of our stuff. And then once our house was empty it no longer felt like home.
I'm curious to see what photos I actually have of December since it was such a weird month...
I'm so glad I decided long ago to do a monthly version of Project Life because otherwise it would take me ages to complete the pages. It's not about completing it...but still...it would have taken me forever if I was doing a weekly project.
Lately, the kids have been taking out our most recent scrapbook albums and looking through them. Joshua thinks that he is Jeralyn or that his baby pictures are Joel (they do look a lot alike). It's been fun to share those memories with them through the pages.
It's been fun to catch-up because I look back at these photos and the memories of our last home and our life in Alaska come flooding into my heart and mind. Those were precious, memorable years. We left Alaska different people than when we first entered the beautiful state. And now the journey continues...but that's for later...when I'm more caught up.
Wow, it's been SO long since I've blogged. So much has happened since August. We moved from Alaska to Idaho. So between moving and waiting on pictures to be edited and just life in general...it's just been a long time. Oops!
We went to Michigan in July and we took SO many pictures! In fact, there were so many pictures that instead of doing a regular 2-page spread for the month, I had to do 3-spreads (6 pages)!
My goal was to take a picture with everyone we saw during our visit in Michigan. I didn't get everyone, but I am impressed with what I did get.
