My rating: 4 of 5 stars
LOVED how the author told us what happened from Adams pov!! parts of me were mad at mia and parts of me were mad at adam....but i was satisfied with the ending. definitely recommend these great books and look forward to anything else she writes!

great read...the story moves fast. beginning with a tragic accident we follow a girls life through flashbacks. the flashbacks are always relevant to the current story and there are tons of really great characters...this one made me cry more than a few times!!

i really must stop getting involved in long series that drag on...
this one is even more difficult for me because of trying to seperate book world from TV show world...sometimes my brain wants to just explode.
having never BEEN a fan of the fairy thing...the fact that they are becoming more important than the vampires as the series moves on...does not make me happy.
im not saying im done...im just saying...im not IN LOVE like i used to be (except with yummy Eric...i still love him)

they really do light up my day.
She says...aunt carrie...you come play with me? and grabs my hand.
Then she asks...please may i have some chapstick? whats an auntie to do except give her whatever she wants.
Then I leave and she says Thank you for coming to see me. I say I love you and she says...Love Ya!
For me...this layout captures all of that.

Arent those pants and glasses great?? Ive had this pic forever and so excited I finally got it done. I dont love how big my writing is in the top but i do love that our prompt today was list journaling and this just kind of popped out.

it was exhilarating and amazing...and crazy and stressful :) I'm totally doing it again...but never in the snow!!
This picture always makes me laugh and to remember exactly how I felt that day. Just went to town on the journaling to get all the feelings out!

I think I'm keeping this one. Most of the time since I scrap other peoples kids they get the pages...makes sense that way. But I think I need to start keeping a few of the ones that I love the most. They are a LITTLE bit my kids too, right??
This page was totally about the product and I'm really in love with everything I put on here. From the flashcard with its clever use of 2, to the dresses and cherries to the sweet lettering...and that tiny strip of lovely paper :) Sometimes...I'm just really excited about how a page turns out.

Looking back is mixed with sadness though. This is the last time mom would be at my birthday. I wish I could remember what she did or said. If she was the one that made the cake and decorated it or if she was too sick already. Its still a precious photo I have of her and I am happy that I have it scrapped now.

And now hes almost FIVE! I really need these kids to quit growing up! High School graduation is going to break me...
Hes a smart funny little man now though and its oh so cool to watch him "get" the world around him. Oh and hes a great little grocery shopper!

Her concentration face just cracks me up! I had to put in the one of her and Nana cause that's the only one I got of her smiling!!
I figured since we are speeding toward her third birthday (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) now I should scrap the second one :)
Birthdays are overwhelming with the amount of pictures...and i can bet you this will be the only page i do of them...lol! I'm weird like that.

Often I would rather complain than be thankful. That really needs to change because I have been so so blessed! Its time to concentrate on what i HAVE not what I want or what i don't have.
I cant decide which i love more here the pictures and journaling or the awesome papers and embellie combo. HA!

Our annual photo shoot for Nanas birthday. The year before we did it at sears and decided NEVER again would we cram this many kids into a tiny room! Went WAY better this year in the backyard! Trust me there are STILL alot of outtakes though...haahahaa
I just love seeing them grow and change year to year. Their little personalities so evident even when they are tiny people :)
seriously...love...more than anything...
