Reliving the Memories

I've actually been scrapbooking recent events lately, which is not something I do much of since I still haven't scrapbooked a lot of my kids baby pics! But I like to mix it up, and it has been fun to relive all of the fun things we did during our "Crazy Summer of 2009."
Yep, I've given it that title.
I felt a little like a chicken running around with it's head cut off,
but in the midst of all the craziness of going and coming we had a lot of fun!
This first layout is of my kids and all of their cousins and their grandparents at the family reunion we went to in Yellowstone. I absolutely LOVE these pictures!!
I love that in the family we have 12 grand kids ages 14 and under, with 9 of those 12 being under the age of 5!! You bet it is a wild, but FUN party!
I was hoping to get some great wildlife or
scenic shots while we were there, but these are way better and I think in fifty years they will mean a whole lot more! :)
Supplies: Patterned papers (Mr. Campy line by Cosmo Cricket), Brown paper, line stamps, black pen, ink and alphabet stamps (CTMH), red journaling spot (Jillibean soup), deer sticker (Karen Foster designs), brown letter stickers (doodlebug designs).

This next layout is pictures from our trip to Disneyland. While Bryan was studying for the Bar exam, the kids and I went to CA with my parents and siblings. We were able to go to Disneyland with all of my cousins that live in San Diego, and their kids. It was a TON of fun, even if my feet were killing me by the end of the day (we stayed for 15+ hours!)! I'm just so glad we all still make an effort to get together like this!
The title says "Every family tree has a few nuts....mine just happens to have a lot!"
SOOoo true with my family, and we know it, and we don't care!
That is what makes getting together fun, right?

Supplies: Cranberry CS, black PP, Green PP, black rub-ons (CTMH), Yellow PP (Crate Paper), Journaling Spots (Jillibean Soup), Alphabet stickers (American Crafts), Chipboard tree (Maya Road), buttons (Foof-a-la and Bazzil).

Oh, and you can click on the pictures to see them bigger if you want.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! :0)

Cute pages, Janelle. You guys sure did have a whirlwind of a summer. I think Matt and I are starting to feel better so I'm hoping that one of these next weekends we'll be able to come see you. Matt works this weekend but perhaps the week after that. I'll have to talk to him and let you know :)
