why I scrap...

I started scrapping during college and while my skills have improved with time the reasons why I scrap have not- to preserve my memories.  I love getting out the books and remembering all the fun times and reflecting on our lives and the journey.  It is so much fun to share this with my children- THEY LOVE looking at the scrapbooks!  We got out Patrick's scrapbook today since it is his birthday.  I love seeing the twinkle in their eyes as they flip the pages- PRICELESS!!!

These moments make it all worth the time!  I know one day they will have fun showing their children (YIKES!).

So as we went down memory road today I thought I would take you along....and also to show you as with any craft or art form the more you play your style evolves over time.  :-) so no teasing...OKAY!?!
And yes- my oh my have we aged...hopefully well but nevertheless we are getting older.  Poor Josh has a ton of gray hair now which he attributes to the children!  And our sweet Ireland is no longer blonde- she is a lovely brunette.  Amazing to see our journey.....

The kids are now on Spring Break and we are headed for a little vaca with my sister and future brother in law- gotta knock out some upcoming wedding stuff- YIPPPEEE!!!!

I will share one last photo....so I showed Patrick and me then....here is Patrick and me as of yesterday...

I think he is one of the cutest 7 year olds I know- yes I am biased but seriously how can you not eat that face up!?!

Life is good!!!
