I've been working on Perri's scrap-book this week. I just love this child and love looking back over the 8 years she's been such an important part of our lives. This photo is of her and her big sister Syd while they were camping. Perri is about 3 yrs old and Syd almost 6 in this picture.

My goal is to do at least one scrap-book per grand-daughter. I'm only a little over 6 years behind so the books should be finished by the time they get married. Then I'll have to start all over again.

I love all my grand-girls and each one holds a special place in our hearts and in our lives. They are all unique, with God-given gifts and traits and personalities. No one could have told me how special grand-children would be and have me believe it before they came. I couldn't see myself as a Gramma before the first was born; and I can't see life without them in it now that they're here. The world without Jackie? Stef? Syd? Perri? Erica? Unimaginable.

I wonder if that's how it is for our Father in heaven when He thinks of us?


  1. What a wonderful idea to have a scrapbook for each grandchild! It is a lot of work, though. I've never made one, but I have certainly admired beautiful ones that have been made by my friends. Looking back now, if I had a book like that made by my grandma, I would treasure it, and I'm sure your grandchildren will, too.

  2. What a great thing for you to do
    and YES GRAND BABES are awesome..I adore mine!!!!!


  3. What great memories you are making!
    You and my Kell are soo alike...
    photography, scrapbooking and crafting!
    Sweet Perri the Sandwich Fairy,
    she is a character! I've heard lots of stories from my daughter the lunch lady!

  4. Hey Trish, you've got it's Scary Perri the Sandwich Fairy. (I call her this because when she was in Kindergarten she ordered 2nd choice for lunch EVERYDAY. 2nd choice is always some sort of sandwich.)

    I love that kid!

    Oh and I love seeing photos of her and Syd from when they were younger! Too cute!
