Honeymoon Pages

Wow are we old!  I just had to scrap some Hawaiian honeymoon pics.  We've been married 11 years and I'm just scrapping these honeymoon pics :) he he
We went to Hawaii and were blissfully happy then!  I'm glad that we are still as much, if not more, in love now.

Chloee's Birthday in Heaven

Every year we celebrate the girls' birthdays.  Sometimes we go to the cemetery, sometimes we have their birthday at our home.  I'm just getting to scrappin' Chloee's birthday from last September (only a year behind... sigh...)  We went to the cemetery and decorated her grave, let off balloons to heaven, and did a random act of kindness there.  Happy 4th birthday to my baby girl!

Snow White Digital Scrapbooking Pages

A page for my sweet baby girl, Chloee, called Fairest one of All!  She's so cute!

And a page of T about when he first rode the Snow White ride at Disneyland - we found out really fast that it was tooooo scary!!  Journaling: When we first took Tyson to Disneyland, we thought we'd go first to Fantasyland and do some of the "kiddie" rides. Boy, were we wrong! We didn't realize how scary of a ride Snow White was! You didn't want to go on any more rides after that. So we left the dark rides and headed over to It's a Small World. Now we always start there!

And I have a freebie for ya!  It is a SnowWhite digital scrapbooking background page and the book - both from the Snow White Disneyland ride - extracted from photos I took there!  Hope you can use it!  Please leave a comment when you download!

Dear Chloee, It all Belongs to You...

I wanted to do a page for Chloee and write to her since I am missing her so much right now.  My heart is aching today and my arms and the rest of me :)  The pic on this page is when she was dying - we didn't know it but her heart and kidneys were failing for the last time.  She looks so swollen and sick and tired - she was so... done.
I used the lyrics from the song Belongs to You by Emerson Drive to help me with the words!  I can never say what I want to say...
Chloee, I love you and my life belongs to you baby girl.
Love, your grieving mommy

An Old Cruise Page!

This is an ooooold pic from 2003!  Jake and I went on our first cruise. I was somehow inspired to find these old photos and scan them!
It reminds me of a time when we were so carefree and happy!  I didn't have this grief that hurts my heart so much - but we didn't have the special kind of joy that children bring either :)

A Crush on a Mouse - a Disney Digital Scrapbook Page

A Crush on a Mouse!
When Tyson first met Minnie, he was smitten!  He was about 2 years old - maybe not quite.  We went to Disneyland for the second time with our friends and while at ToonTown decided to go visit Minnie at her house.  I remember he ran right to her and hugged her for the longest time!  Minnie was so surprised and happy that she went with him to her couch inside her house and talked with him and sat there with him for quite awhile!  It was the most memorable moment I've ever had at Disneyland!  So we say his first real crush was Minnie Mouse...  Now he's 6 and so over it :) sigh....
This was my page for a challenge over at - check it out here!

Memorial Day

This memorial day, we remember our sweet girls.  Sending love to you in heaven!!!!  We miss you.
I made a page to show how we decorated their graves this year - with a heart made out of balloons.
There is a quote that goes like this, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."  I say screw that quote!  And so I changed it to fit me and my grieving heart...
"It's okay to cry because it's over, but it's also okay to smile because it happened."  This memorial day, I will both smile and cry because I cannot love my daughters without both smiling and crying.
