The pages are ultra simple . . . because, if they aren’t I will never finish the book! I have been sorting my digital photos and I am enchanted with 2008. I am planning on making this an 8” x 8” book. I've done about a dozen or more pages so far. This is a photo of our eldest granddaughter building her very first snowman . . . she told us it is snow girl!!! If you look closely you will see the carrot she chose for the snow girl’s nose lying in the snow in the lower left.

I really love [b]Kelly’s[/b] aka (wsprite_ad) layout with her pretty pinks and love too her framed jig-saw puzzle with the photo frame holder! I’ve given mine a little more “boy” look . . . and, this is what I came up with . . . not at all what I had in mind when I began this morning. We had a four or five hour power outage thanks to our southern ice storm. The power went out in the midst of my scrapping and I feared that I had lost my layout, but the fates were with me and I got to finish it up tonight! [b]Journaling:[/b] Papa took Mac on a little walk in the early evening just before bath time. Mac picked up each stone and stick he found and finally just wore himself out. He had taken his shoes off and when we found them, they were snuggly put inside Papa’s pockets!

I’ve got too many irons in the fire right now I think! I thought it was a blending challenge from around Valentine’s Day, but cant find it on the blog . . . so here is a page I’ve done that was fun to play with anyway . . . guessing that it really doesn’t matter what it was intended to be!!! The photograph is of our little granddaughter made when I took her to a community arts &amp; exploring center recently. She loved to paint and enjoys this activity there where she as access to so many mediums.

We were to create a layout with this one kit and one extra product. First of all, I’m not sure that I’ve ever done a black &amp; white layout . . . so this one took me a little longer than I thought it would . . . and second, it was hard for me to narrow my extra product to just one! But, once I got the rules in my head, it was lots of fun! It has been a while since I’ve done a page for this challenge . . . and now that I have gotten my feet wet, I will try more layouts with only one kit! Thanks, Lynn for the fun!

It finally grew into a majestic tree and provided glossy leaves to decorate our homes during the Christmas season and fragrant blossoms to float in bowls to perfume the house in the heat of summer. Later it allowed my own children and grandchildren to climb its sturdy branches, which grew to tower above the crest of the hill on Maple Street.

My journaling really got carried away with itself I think! [b]Journaling:[/b]My memories of Christmas are scattered. My first true memory when I was five or six or seven is of driving into the town square in Cookeville in what was probably the late 1940’s in Daddy’s old green Studebaker pick-up truck. There was a stone wall about three feet tall around the courthouse in the town center . . . leaning against that wall were cedar trees marching around the entire circumference. I am sure that there were several old men who had chopped down the legions of cedar trees on their various farms to populate the Court House Square for the month of December. The Court house would be playing Christmas carols from the bell shaped loud speakers on the four corners of the building, the old men would sit on the fence and whittle the scrap cedar into fanciful shapes to give to the children . . . Mr. Saul carved me a boot once when I was there with my Daddy. I really don’t remember the price of the trees, but I do remember talking to Daddy about buying a Christmas tree many years later and him telling me that when I was really little they were a quarter a tree for the little ones and that later the price climbed to a dollar a tree for a medium tree. I am sure that I climbed up on the rock wall and walked it’s surface around the courthouse block. Almost everyone we knew had or native cedar or pine tree like Rose Leigh, Aunt Lucille and Aunt Velma did for their Christmas tree’s in those years. To have a fir or spruce meant that you had more money or were more sophisticated than we were. These pretty trees were always purchased at Mr. Saunders’s Florist on Broad Street across town on the corner by the Shank’s Hotel. The Hooper’s always had a fir tree from the florist and I decided early on that when I had some money of my own that I would have a tree like the one, which Helen Ann’s daddy had. Jenny’s family used an aluminum tree with colored lights reflecting on it. I remember that I liked to help decorate the tree and the house for Christmas. I don’t think that Mother enjoyed this nearly as Daddy and I did! Daddy probably put the large multicolored lights on the tree before we added the ornaments. The bad part of this was that the Cedar made me itch and have little red spots on my hands. My job after Christmas was to take the shiny silver icicles off of the branches and return them stretched out straight back into the box. When Ernie &amp; I married, our first tree was a tiny one, which sat on a little table in the tiny Hotel Regina in Darmstadt, Germany. We stayed there for a few months after moving to Germany where we the Army sent us. The next few years while in the Army we had Pine Trees . . . so much for my much wanted Fir! Our prettiest trees were those we had while stationed at Ft. Monmouth in New Jersey . . . guess it is that colder climate where the variety of Christmas trees is so large. Our favorite was one, which had lots of what we called our elf shelves in which to tuck ornaments. After the military we moved back to the South and have always had Frazer Fir trees . . . they are pretty and last a long time (except for the one tree which lost every single needle in the house) and they don’t make my hands break out. The kids always loved helping me decorate the tree. Michael became my expert strings of light installer! I still hate that job! I love each of our Christmas trees . . . I miss the old cedars of my childhood at home and at Mama &amp; Aunt Velma’s house. I miss the wonderful smells of the cedar trees and the joy of going to buy them with my daddy.

Needless to say, we don't eat this stale candy, but we do love to use it and look at the huge variety we have accumulated over the years. The boys are getting quiet experienced in the architecture of these houses . . . and quiet daring in their decoration.

The Doodle may not look like much of a restaurant . . . in fact, it might look like a dive, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I have lived away from this little town since I graduated from college and married in 1966, but some things never change. I have found that those of us from our small class of 150 students who meet each month haven’t really changed much either. Some of us didn’t know each other all that well while in high school, but now that we do we wish we always had been best friends! Today there were only 11 of us around the table . . . there was one birthday and a celebratory chocolate pie still warm from the oven waiting for us at our favorite table. We were moved us to another part of the restaurant because we were being too loud . . . and none of us are 17 any more! [b]Journaling:[/b] Our high school class of ‘63 meets once a month in our hometown for lunch at the Dipsy Doodle. The Doodle has been in our lives since we were all born . . . opened in 1943 just before the end of the war. They had a fire and had to move across the street, but the food is still some of the best in town. The hamburgers are fabulous, the meat &amp; three can’t be beat . . . the crowning glory is their chocolate &amp; coconut pies with meringue piled 8-inches high! It is definitely worth the long drive to be here with a huge table of old friends each month!!!

I am telling a bit of a story for the Christmas of 1972 when our three boys were small. The page is also a new page for my Family Christmas Card book, which I began last year. This year when we send out our Christmas cards it will the 49th card we have sent since our wedding just before the Christmas of 1966. For years, I have been meaning to make a book for each of our children containing each of our cards. I’m starting this book fully aware that I’ve several other Christmas book yet unfinished . . . but, plugging along at each of them when the mood strikes me! This 1972 card was the 7th one we sent to friends and family . . . this year we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. I am probably going to make this book where it can have pages added as the years roll on and Christmas cards are added one by one. Right now my plans are to do one book for the first 25 years and another for the second 25. My immediate goal is to have the first book done by next Christmas as a gift to each of our four children. [b]Journaling:[/b] The Christmas of 1972, we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina and living in a house which Ernie &amp; I were renovating in the Cottonade subdivision in Fayetteville. We bought the old house there in the spring of ‘72 and moved in with Kevin was 2 days old! This Christmas was the first of three Christmas’s there. We didn’t go to Cookeville this year for Christmas day, but stayed in our new house. Daddy rode the Greyhound bus down and spend the holidays with us . . . I guess that he road the bus back to Tennessee later on too . . . I just can’t remember! I do remember that the weather was beautiful on Christmas day that year . . . I had written down in a little notebook that it was 60-degrees and that Michael and Mark went outside to play with some of their new Tonka trucks in the big sand pile which Ernie was using to mix concrete . . . few days earlier it was 75-degrees. I made Michael’s &amp; Mark’s little red striped pajamas and Kevin wore the little striped nightshirt, which I had made for Michael for his second Christmas. Santa Claus brought the boys a bouncy horse to ride, red rubber boots, books, Playschool barn and animals, Fisher Price record player, a little walking robot. Aunt Lucille gave baby Kevin a sweet little stuffed dog which she got at Christmas Village in Nashville when she and I went down when we were home for Thanksgiving. Aunt Velma made cozy white terry cloth bathrobes. Mother and Daddy gave them the barn &amp; record player. Mark got a burn on his face that Christmas from Pa Pa Pat’s cigarette . . . it wasn’t bad, but Daddy felt just awful over it all. I felt sorry for Daddy . . . it hurt him much longer than it did little Mark. The photo, which I used on our card this year, was made at the K-Mart in Cookeville after Thanksgiving.

[b]Journaling;[/b] This little pine chest sits in our family room and must be moved to another location when we put out tree up.

My photographs are going to mainly be of items, which I am thankful for around our house. These are the little inconsequential things that I take for granted, but am also thankful for. [b]Journaling:[/b] I am thankful for our abundant trees. Thankful that when we bought this old house almost 40 years ago that it came with hundreds of old and young trees to shelter us, to provide shade for our children to play under, to allow them branches to climb on and sturdy trunks to build tree houses up as high as the sky! I am thankful for the entertaining and annoying squirrels that feast and hoard the fallen pecans and for the birds, which gather among the leaves. And, as much as I dislike losing a tree to storms, I know that storms are the very best way to remove weak and dead limbs. This old pecan tree in our front yard had a huge limb, which was broken, and hanging precariously for months . . . much too high for us to remove . . . we just walked in a wide swath when the wind blew! Two days ago we had a storm and the next morning we found that the limb was safely removed for us. Papa got his chain saw and sawed it into fireplace-sized logs to move near the barn where he stacks firewood for the winter. There was abundant kindling and abundant mess too! We will clean up the mess and later, have warm evenings this winter with logs in our fireplace!

I have loved [b]Kelly’s (mugsbigsis)[/b] Halloween pages of her cute boys from the first one she posted last year . . . this year I started my own of our children when they were young. As of today, I have finished two pages . . . 1977 &amp; 1969 . . . I’ve got some digging to do to find more photos from way-back-when! [b]Journaling:[/b] Michael you were 15 months old for your second Halloween. We were living at Aunt Velma’s house while your Daddy was in Vietnam . . . I took this photograph of you and sent it to him in a letter after Halloween. When he came back home this photo came back with him . . . A bit tattered and bent, but loved. Your costume this year was your blue fleece sleepers and a red felt ruff and cuffs, which Aunt Velma made for you. We made a hat from red poster paper big round golden stickers on the front. I don’t remember just where we went, but I am sure we took you to Aunt Lucille’s house and to Ha Hee’s house too. The photo was made in Ha Hee’s &amp; Papa Pat’s den. I imagine that we went to see Rubye Rose &amp; Robert and Frances &amp; Ed too.

My photographs are going to mainly be of items, which I am thankful for around our house. These are the little inconsequential things that I take for granted, but am also thankful for. I just started!! Will finish days one, two and four today. [b]Journaling:[/b] I have had a love of colored pencils since I was a little girl. I can remember visiting Jo Haile’s brother, Owen Griffin’s Art Supply store in downtown Nashville when I was around 10 years old and loving a large set of brightly colored pencils. Later that year, Santa Claus brought a set just like them to me on Christmas Day! I still have odds &amp; ends of that old set and have added many more to them. I now love the watercolor pencils too. I have an entire row of old mugs and glasses full of my collection and love having them handy for my projects. The tall white container and the mug with pink flowers painted on it are two that Beth made while taking ceramics at Camp Monterey when she was a child. The mug on the left is one, which our children gave their Daddy on Father’s Day in 1978. These days, our grandchildren enjoy using my colored pencils almost as much as I do and create beautiful drawing with them.

Around 30 members and their wives practically took over the Holiday Inn Express for three days . . . and returned to campus for a reception with the university president and a welcome back to the fraternity house for a look around as all the old photographs and memories that it invoked . . . and, a wonderful buffet of donuts from Ralph’s, which opened in town about the time we all entered college in 1963! My favorite thing was meeting the golden eagle mascot again after all of these years! P.S. I didn’t go to the game . . . it was tooooo cold!!

Next year, we will start a project for the best clam chowder in Maine! That will be very difficult, since he thinks that each bowl is the best ever! We really missed chowder this October . . . no trip . . . been just way over the top to busy with other stuff to travel there. Of course, we eat other things there too . . . lobster for one &amp; fried clams for two . . . we consume lots of them too!!! In this photo we were in Camden and the restaurant had a limited menu as they were to close on October 30th for the season . . . were cleaning out their pantry . . . but, had plenty of chowder and fried clams still. [b]Journaling:[/b] If it is fall it must be New England . . . it is New England, it must be Maine . . . and, if it is Maine, it must be Clam Chowder every day! When we go to New England we usually fly into Manchester, NH &amp; pick up our rental car and go straight to Legal Seafood for Ernie’s first cup of Clam Chowder. From there on, he eats at least one bowl each day and often eats three a day. We can tally from a dozen or more bowls for the trip . . . and, then reminisce about them and look forward to the next year!

Today Connie gives us a [u][b][url=]Template Mash Up Challenge[/url][/b][/u] using two delightful templates from Cathy Z and Kayleigh. This layout is my take on mixing these two up!! [b]Journaling:[/b] Fifteen or twenty years ago, the state provided American Chestnut seedlings to homeowners to plant on their land. We took about a dozen of them and planted them around our home. And, then we forgot about them until about five years ago when we noticed that we had chestnuts all over the ground. Once we gathered them and removed the prickly burrs, Ernie picked up gallon after of the nuts. I remembered the men in Paris roasting chestnuts on the streets when we were in the Army and living in Germany, and how good they tasted . . . I tried doing the same, but they were a complete failure for me! We continue to gather each autumn and give them to friends. This year as the chestnut burrs were falling, I asked our grandson, Harrison if he would put some heavy gloves on and pick them up for 3 cents each. He did and earned $5.00! Our grandchildren enjoy eating them. Ernie takes bags of them to the nice Laotian lady where we take our dry cleaning.
