Christmas .... 'Miracle"...????



yep.... this is MY Christmas Miracle. A few days BEFORE Christmas we decided to do this little project. I had been slowly (when I had spare time to do some fun scrapbooking) putting OLD photos into a scrapbook. This little album began in the year 1975 and began with photos of Scott and I first married in our first little mobile home. I had completed up to 1985... when I had this hair brained idea to FINISH IT and scan the layouts... put them on a DVD and give all 6 of my kids a dvd with this album on it. Well.... I frantically began. I would scrapbook all day, and Scott would scan them into the computer each night. We worked HARD and completed the task. We put it into a video format, added music and had a dvd for each child Christmas Eve. It went from 1975 thru the curren 2010. It included the childhood memories of 6 children, their weddings, and each of the then.... 12 grandchild. I say then.... because 2 days after completing our project, #13 was born! As Scott and I sat and watched our finished project.... their were lots of tears of joy as we 'watched' our life on screen. I am SO excited and am so greatful that I was able to preserve those memories not only on the dvd, but in 3 HUGE albums. Thank You Close to my Heart for giving me the means to accomplish this.
Now on to 2011.....
