For Christmas, 2008, two new people joined us for the holiday: Sayuri, an exchange student from Japan staying with Liz and Jim, and Kristine, John's girlfriend. Sayuri has gone back to Japan, but Kristine will be joining our family permanently this summer when she and John marry. It's so exciting!

 

These pictures are bittersweet in a way as Mom, suffering from Alzheimer’s since 2004, cannot make "Grandma buns" and lefsa now like she did in 2008. It is hard to see her lose ground, but it also good to look back and remember the good times. (May 17, 2012)

I love this LO because it is not "over Christmased", like I do sometimes. Great photos and the template works really well.

What a special two-page spread. I love they way your layouts look next to each other and how your wonderful photos look lined up across the page and how you alternated horizontal and vertical pics. I also really like the colors you used and enjoyed reading your notes. Sara's right - they tell such a great story! :)
