Happy 2009

This year for Christmas, we made up a few calendars for relatives. Well technically Jay's sister, Michelle, made them and we printed them.

It got me inspired to make one for us. I used this on-line scrap booking site. I relied heavily on the already created templates since I have never in my life created a scrap book page. Then once I was done I exported them as jpeg files and printed them off on my own ink jet printer.

To bring in 2009, I thought I would share them with you since many of you don't get the chance to visit in real life. Basically I have nothing inspiring or full of wisdom to post so you get this instead. I am hoping it's better than nothing but you can be the judge of that!

(capition reads: I hope you fall in love with making music, that it will be one of your greatest passions, filling your heart with joy, and that through music, you discover that dedication and hard work are your greatest assets, Love Mommy)

(Sand castles, surf, sun, time with my boys, it was perfect)

(Little boys are made of snails and puppy dog tails)

(Our brave boy, his eye needed fixing, he faced it with such courage)

(True Love, 10 years of wedded bliss, let there be 60 more, filled with love, laughter and good health)

(Day and Night, when you are sleeping, it's hard to believe you are ever anything but still and serene, when you are awake it's hard to believe you would ever sit still)

(Learning so much, making the grade, 100%, you've set the bar high, we couldn't be prouder of who you are)

And lastly a couple of shots of the boys waiting for their cousins to arrive on Christmas Eve.

Not so patiently.

May 2009 bring nothing but joy and happiness to you and your loved ones!

Kami, those are wonderful!!!! I'll have to check it out myself, as if there's one thing I am totally NOT is crafty nor creative LOL! I'm all thumbs.

You have a beautiful, beautiful family. I'm so glad to have gotten to "know" you in 2008, one of my highlights for sure. Your thoughts and words are really helping in this difficult time.

Happy New Year to you, health and happiness and all the good stuff for 2009.

Happy New Year to you and your lovely family :-)

I've never created a scrapbook either! Glad to know I'm not the only bad mommy around here ;)

Happy New Year to You and all of your boys... love that last picture of Jack I've had my fair share of that face ;)

What a great idea! I love the photos and the journaling you used. I am so glad that sites like that exist so that people like even me could put something together. Nice job, Kami. Of course, I'm a bit biased because I always thought your family was adorable. :) Happy 2009 to you and yours!

Great job. I suppose it helps to have such an adorable family to use in the photos.

Happy New Year!
