What better way to honor my Mom, who turned 75 this year, than with a house shaped book created with love by her children and grandchildren.
Because no matter where we are
wherever Mom lives
These are the front
and inside front pages
done by me.
The above pages are made
by my brother Dan.
He is the oldest child.
And Precious Boy.
These pages are my done by
my bro's oldest son, Joe.
And yeah, that is a perpetual sign
that says "Best Grandma Ever." Joe is a technological wizard.
These pages are done by my brother's oldest daughter, Carolyn.
These pages are done by my
This page is done by my sister Deb. Yeah I know its upside down. But today's word is Lazy. teehee.
These pages are done by my sister Deb's son, Tim. He is my Godson. I saw him come out. So yeah he is AMAZING.
These pages are done by me. You probably recognize the red hair. Look how tiny Sam was. Barely 5 lbs. That is 4 generations of women. In the background is the Ashokan Reservoir. One of the most beautiful places on the planet. My soul lives there.... And so did my grandparents. Coincidence? I think not. The Shawangunk Mountains are the background of the pic of me and my mom. Mountain women. Not really. Unless it's this kind of Mountain House. My mom made Sam's baby quilt. And the pocket holds a love letter I wrote to my mom. And recited at her surprise 75th birthday party. I didn't pass out or barf in front of the guests. I highly recommend Cook's Champagne as a calming tonic. teehee.
These are my daughter
she is the artistic one.
I am just the finder of glue sticks
Here is the page I made to represent my Dad. Cuz, well, the Colonel don't do glue. Feel me? I put the speech he read at my mom's party in the little pocket.
This is the back page. I wanted it to look like a girl scout vest covered in badges. There are stamps for every state my mom and dad have lived in. And stamps representing her varied interests. This was a fun one.
