Glenda Ketchum shared an album she just finished and I loved how she wrote the pages from the baby's perspective. When I went to do this page of Mom and Evie I thought I'd try it and was really happy with the way it turned out, besides documenting this trip they took.
Here's the Journaling:
My sister Alyssa and I (my name is Evie) live in Virginia with my Mom and Dad. Daddy is in the Navy and he has to go out on the ship, sometimes for weeks at a time so then it’s just us three girls that get to play together.
Mommy and Daddy decided we should make this big trip across the
United States to see my Grandma and Grandpa Johnson. After we broke in their house and scattered all our stuff around they took us to Longview where our Great Grandma and Grandpa Mahnke live. Wow all these Grandmas with all these hugs and kisses. I’m a really big star here in Washington, well Alyssa is too, but I’m the newest one in the family so I’ve really been getting a lot of attention.
After we played with Sparky, Great Grandmas fluffy little bundle of dog, they decided we should all go see another Grandma, how many can a girl have I wonder? This time it was to see Great Great Grandma Coulter, sure are a lot of Greats in her name! My Grandma always calls her Granny Goose and I think I kinda like that name too, so from now on she’s going to be my Granny Goose who lives in Washington. They say Granny is old, she’s 96 but I don’t think she looks old. She can still hold me in her lap and hug me and play with me, so that’s not old, I don’t think they know what they’re talking about.
We sure do have a BIG family in Washington, my Auntie Krysta that’s my Mommy’s sister) still lives in Vancouver with Grandma and Grandpa. Then there all these other Uncles and Aunts and they all have that Great name in front of theirs again, it’s so confusing for someone my age.
I think I’ve decided I like them all and they all seemed to like me too!
This was done with Maddy Fernandez's Sugar n Spice kit and her Frilly Border Templates & Doodles (this is a cool kit with endless possibilities, you should check it out!). You can find all of Maddy's things at Digitals.
