30 Years and Many More

October 14th was mine and Jimmy's wedding anniversary. We celebrated by going up to the mountains of Tennessee. Pigeon Forge is our favorite place. We always find something new to get into. This year Jim asked if he could go to the Comedy Barn for his anniversary gift. I'm not a real Heehaw girl, but for him anything. My gift was spending time, unhurried, at the scrapbook stores.

I'm Grateful for...
...a safe trip
...each other, our love, our struggles that made us one
...God's ability to teach us in unexpected ways

I also finished a two album (8.5 x 8.5) project of my son's and a screaming mother's trip to Washington DC and New York City. I'll post just three. They are not the best pages but each is special for a reason.

The first layout is of the Holocaust Museum. We were not allowed to take pictures inside, so this is the only picture all of us got. But it is important for Jacob to "Remember" the unsung hero's of WWII. If you get a chance to go be prepared for it to change your life.
The second layout is in NYC. FAO Swartz was the most fun, welcoming place. We did not get to go to traditional touristy places due to the fact we were in the middle of a bad Nor'easter. So we found fun alternatives. The boys…
