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!

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)If I Stay by Gayle Forman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!!

Book Review: Dead Reckoning

Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, #11)Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

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 just not IN LOVE like i used to be (except with yummy Eric...i still love him)

Happy Birthday Mom!

We missed you today. Cathi made Red Velvet cake and we sang Happy Birthday to you. I choked up of course but it was such a sweet moment. Rebecca said she wanted Grama to come to her house but accepted the explanation that you were waiting for her in heaven. Cathi told her how much you loved Jesus. You would be so tickled with her, mom. She goes around singing sunday school songs all the time. I wish you could come to her house too...for some cake and some singing and coloring and hugs...lots of hugs :) Cathi and I have been cleaning out old photo albums finally...there are alot of great pictures in there! Its been great to remember some of the good times. Of course I wish you were here to fill in the stories that go with some of them. I guess thats just good motivation for me to get the stories told. Anyways, I just wanted you to know we had cake today and that I miss you. Love,

Her smiles...

LOAD Day 26, originally uploaded by carrie.knabe.

they really do light up my day.

She says...aunt 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.

Pretty Girls in Pretty Dresses

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.
