And the Scrapbooking Begins!

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I wanted to start scrapbooking since I fell in love with it at Camp Sol. I even set up a temporary station in the closet of the guest bedroom. Well, that didn't last long. There just wasn't enough light in there to do anything. Once we got Richard's new shed for the back yard, we were able to move some file cabinets out of the office into the garage & make room in the office for my scrapbook stuff. I now have everything in the office again and finally gotten a chance to sit down and create my first (and second) scrapbook page.

Caleb is so excited about getting a baby brother. He desperately wants someone with whom he can play football. Caden Joshua Huffines has arrived! Born on November 27, 2008 (yes, Thanksgiving Day), at 2:16 p.m. He weighs in at 7 lbs, 7 oz (1 lb, 1 oz bigger than Caleb) and is 18 3/4 inches long. When Caleb finally got to see Caden and hold him in his arms, he looked up at Richard and said, "Daddy, why is he so small?" I think he expected to be able to play football with him right away, but Caden is only slightly bigger than the football right now!
From the moment we brought Caleb home from the hospital until the moment he left home for the last time, Samson was at his side. Caleb adored Samson and the feeling was definitely mutual. Caleb loved getting “kisses” from his best friend, kicking back with “biscuits” together, & playing chase in the yard. Samson just loved the attention. Thanks, Samson, for being a faithful companion & loyal protector for our little boy while he was with us. 

After I got these two pages finished,I realized I was going to need more room! Richard has been so supportive of this endeavor. He took me to Lowe's yesterday to find a shelving unit to put in my scrapping area to house more stuff. I wonder if he realized when I decided to do this just how much would be involved. But I am so thankful that he is on board with this. I have such an awesome man of God for a husband and I love and respect him so very much. My shelving unit is already assembled. Once I get my supplies organized on it, then I can get back to scrapping. I have the layout for my next page already in my mind and can't wait to see how it unfolds on paper. Well, actually I have the next several layouts planned out in my head, but I'll take it one page at a time.

 We still miss Caleb every moment of every day. He is always in our hearts, always in our thoughts, and is loved today, tomorrow, in ALL ways to infinity and beyond.

Angel, Richard & Caden
