I'm also very thankful for good friends, One of my friends put it this way (left out some stuff, but you get the gist of it)....When I look back at this year, I see you as having a lot of pressure, lots of things happening, plus doing things for everyone. Grahams had a horrific year, and you've had to bear up under that and take care of him as well. The last 6 months I've never seen anyone so busy as you. My opinion is that you are going to have to make a decision to slow down, and people are going to have to take care of themselves in some ways, not putting pressure on you so much. I'd say she's right and I have another good friend who has said much the same. I'm sure you've noticed that I've posted less in the last year, and these are some of the reasons why. I love this little blog and I want to keep it up, so I hope I figure it all out. Some things are going to have to change! Pray for me, will you?

Now maybe I'll have time to make one for myself, because I do love these.
Also, if you need zippers, I bought some of mine at Zipit, and the rest I bought locally. I paid a bit more for the local zippers, but it was a time crunch situation.
The granddaughter's pouches were also done in this fabric. It's just fun-loving, sweet and cute like them.

This year we had two more babies born so I made up three pages. Two for the one set of parents and one for the other set, since one of the babies was my sister's grandson and therefore only applied to my side.
Since some of the kids were already teens or young adults at the time, I added a page beside their baby page with a photo of them as teens, and something about them. For example, on one of my sons pages I added his poetry. My nephew was really into Soccer, and his name had that meaning, so I added a soccer themed page for him, etc. So there are quite a few pages.
Here are the pages I did up this week:
