Travel Mini Book

Happy day after Valentines! I hope you all had a great day filled with love with your family and friends. Today we planned to go to Great Mall, but we were first side-tracked by the beautiful snow on Mount Hamilton. We tried to go up there, but they closed the road. It was such a long windy road, Jassy, Jordan and I got car sick. Jordan fell asleep, so he didn't feel it so much. Jasmin was crying on the way down the mountain and me...I still feel a bit sick! After our {non}adventure at Mount Hamilton, we finally made it to Great Mall. Jordan has had a growth spurt and lots of his clothes do not fit him as well so we got him a bunch of clothes and 2 pairs of shoes. Lucky fella! Got home, took a nap with baby Joey, had dinner, then finished the night with Karaoke...haha! Actually, my night has only begun now that I have peace and quiet in the scrap room, although I"m still feeling nauseous..lol.

Tomorrow I'm going to the LSS for a big crop. Bay Area Scrappers is having a fundraising crop for the American Heart Association in memory of Michelle's husband, Marshall. I'm looking through pictures figuring out which ones to scrap and came across this mini album, I think it's an 8x8..so it's not exactly mini...LOL! I gave it to Ate Monette and her family so they can remember their time spent here with us. Here are a few of the pages...very simple!





I kept the journaling parts blank so they can write their own feelings and memories. They were here for 6 weeks!! What a great vacation! I can't wait to see them again..hopefully soon. Next year we are planning to have a big family reunion in the Philippines. All the folks from our Holy Land trip will be joining us. I hope it works out, I haven't been home since 1994 and I miss my family so much.

Tomorrow I'll be getting my scrap ON!...well, only for a few hours. Jordan has a basketball playoff game in the evening at Moreau! Man, I haven't been back there since I graduated...I bet that place looks different, too! There will only be 6 of them so they will be very tired! They are currently in second place and will be playing for a spot in the CYO tournament. Please keep the team in your thoughts and wish them good luck!

Take care everyone
