I mentioned the other day that I have been working on Scrapbook albums for many years and that the trend is kind of winding down...
Did I mention that I had a LOT of albums??? Well I do.... See!
And this isn't all of them, which is the really sad part..... I have a Pre- Marriage one, not pictured here and a Veg's 1st year album, also not pictured here. Oh, and the one I'm currently working on for 2009 is not in this picture either.
These are my Family Shots starting back to 1991
The albums at the bottom are a different set, with only one Vacation each. They are filled with Family Adventures. Like our trip out west, or trip to Michigan, or beach etc.
The two on the top that don't have backs... Well those don't have ANY pictures at all. Those albums are our "Momento Albums"
Everything that is non-picture that I don't want to throw away. Like menus from our favorite spots, ticket stubs, play programs, Special cards, announcements, There is at least ONE item in these books from EVERY SINGLE vacation, we've ever been on. Every adventure, every day trip, every stop at a museum.. Even Hubby's Military Request to marry me is in this album... My birth story is in this album. You get the idea..
If I forgot anything that happened in the past 18 years I could look in these albums to remember..
If my house was on fire, I used to say, I would grab my dogs and my albums because Hubby could grab himself.... Now of course I would grab Veg, dog, and no way no how, I could get ALL My albums....
I'd have to choose which albums??? Ugh, I don't like decisions... hopefully my house will never burn.
