Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to The Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop, don't forget to leave a comment on all 25 blog post and in the forum for your chance to win 1 of 3 gifts Paper Secrets is giving away. Grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up, sit back and enjoy. If you become a follower of my blog and leave a comment you will also be entered to win some goodies from me.

For the hop I decided to do a word book which is by BoBunny. I not sure who the paper is by, it was just in my paper supplies. I inked all the edges, added ribbon, bling a few stamps. It was a lot of work but I love the way it turned out. I found the poem on the Internet. It is called the Spirit Of Santa.


This is a picture of my Mom and Dads first Christmas together in 1947. The picture was in black and white so I decided to do the whole album the same. My parents believed in true love forever! Dad passed in 1984 and Mom never dated and stayed true to him until she passed in 2004.



This is a picture of my oldest sister Debby and myself: I don't know about Debby but I still believe in Santa!


This is my baby sister Penny



This picture is of my two children, Christy, who you all know as christy_scrappin and my son Russell.


Next is a picture of my sister Debby's kids when they were little.



Then came Penny's kids.



Then Christy's two boys (my grandsons).


Then Russell four kids (four more of my grand kids).



and last is a picture of a Christmas present my father made before he passed away. All of his grandchildren were there except for Jon who wasn't born yet.
