Ultrasound Photo Scrap Pages

I dug my ultrasound photos out from my piles and piles of photos, that only took like an hour itself!, and scanned them in so I could do a few pages.
I did one for my boy - he's almost 6 - so I'd say that's a fair amount of time to get around to scrappin his ultrasound pics right??  he he  It is blue and baby boyish and so cute!  The page says "When I saw your picture, I was already totally and completely in love."  And I am still as smitten with my little boy as the day I saw his ultrasound photo :)

And I did one for my baby girl, Chloee.  It was a super hard page for me to do - so emotional.  I was looking at her ultrasound pics and realized that her main ultrasound was done at 5 months old in utero.  And I was just musing about how she lived to be only 5 months old in life.  So I decided to do a page with the theme AT 5 months and how things changed so drastically from those two different times.

At month Five in utero, we had just found out
            that we were having a baby girl.  I cannot say
                how excited we were.  Our hearts were overjoyed,
      bursting with love for you already and we hadn't
   even met you yet, just seen your picture on the
                 screen and felt you moving inside me.  I felt
          nervous because you and Tyson were going to be
   so close together in age - only a year apart but
so excited.  I loved you so much!  We couldn't
        wait for you to come and for all the hopes and dreams
                    we had for you to happen!

At month Five in life, you died.  I could not believe it. 
          What has happened to all of our dreams and
                                                             hopes and wishes for you? 
        Did we really just bury you after your five month
      birthday?  How could this happen?  Why did this
     happen?  We spent so much of your five motnhs of life
           trying to fix you and save you and for what?  To make
                        your life harder and more paintful?
        I felt like life had suddenly, horribly gone wrong.
               We missed you immediately and
                                                           we still do now.

             Five months was not long enough to hold you
                                                                                in my arms.

Our Tinkerbell Fairy

When I think of Tinkerbell, I think of my BumBum, Bree-Elle, our Tinkerbell Fairy!  These fairy pics were taken 2 weeks before she died.  I still can't believe she's gone... 3 years later.
But I am lovin' this page and it makes me so happy to make this purplicious page for her!

A Bunch of Scrap Pages

I've been trying to do a page for when we wrote the girls' names in the sand for sooooo long now.  Nothing seemed to look right.  But I keep trying.  Here's the page I came up with that I actually love now:

Next, I did a hidden Mickey we found on the Monsters Inc ride in Disneyland's California Adventure park while there with our good friends and fellow Disney maniacs!!! Kari and Alan.

And a page for Chloee.  It is so Chloee-esque!  Pink and bright and beautiful of course...  She fills our lives with sunshine still.

And I couldn't leave my Bree out!!!  Everything purple reminds us of Bree.  Here's her page with a very precious photo.  My heart is tied to her with heartstrings.

And finally I had to do a page for my boy!  Here's my Rambunctious Boy(s) page of T on a go-cart but he was too little to pedal so his Daddy had to push him around the track!  he he

Disney Scrap Pages

My new friend Natalie has a brand spankin new kit out for Chip and Dale and for all of your nature, outdoorsy pages at Disneyland or Disneyworld.

I just adore my page of T meeting Dale at Goofy's Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel.  (We go there every time we go to Disneyland because it's so awesome!  Jake loves his peanut butter and jelly pizza there!)
And another page from way long ago when we went to Disneyworld with my whole family - back when we didn't have any kids and we actually had money to fly somewhere...   he he!  Kids are better than money anyway :)

A Frog Prince and A Purple Heaven

We went to Yellowstone a week ago and T found a frog at the cabin!  So this is the page I made for him chronicling the day he caught a frog :)
I also did a page for my Bree-Elle.  It's called A Purple Heaven :)  Love you, BreeBree.  I miss you.
