Hey, remember when I posted this about the projects I wanted to finish this year? And you all laughed in my face and said things like -- oh Elsha, you'll never finish those projects, just give up now! Okay fine, nobody laughed in my face, just behind my back. And that was probably only Kirsta and Kari because they know what a gigantic procrastinator I am. Anyway, I finished one! Just 28 short months after coming back from Tahiti, our honeymoon scrapbook is officially done.

I should have finished it sooner though because looking through all those pictures after the whole book was put together really made me want to go back and do it all again. Well, all except the kayaking part. That was almost grounds for divorce right there. Everything else though. *sigh*

Also, since I know you're all dying to know, I finally sorted through all the pictures I talked about in this post and got some printed. Final count on pictures printed: 803. Approximate number of hours it will take me to scrapbook them all: 1 bazillion. I did get Kalena's baby book loaded up with pictures though so I'm well on my way to finishing that project as well. Although, technically I can't finish it yet because it has spots for stuff that hasn't happened like her walking and her first birthday. But other than waiting on those things, all I need to do is fill in the info about the pictures. It's times like these I wish I had beautiful penmanship (like my sister in law Amy) instead of my own chicken scratch engineer's handwriting. Anyone out there with lovely handwriting interested in coming over and filling in the blanks in Kalena's baby book so it will all be legible?


  1. I've seen the book. It is awesome! Made me want to go on a vacation with my spouse.

    Great job Elsha!

  2. Yay for finishing the honeymoon book!
    No I won't help you with the other. I hate scrapbooking. :)

  3. Way to go! It's always fun to finish something. If you want, I can help you fill in the blanks, but my handwriting isn't perfect :)

  4. I feel the same way about my handwriting. Why can't we all be as talented as Kirsta??

  5. The sad thing is, Lauren has a pretty nice baby book. Emily has half of one. Zach has one with only two pages and Colbie has about the same amount as Zach. Better get that done before #2 comes!
    We need to get Kalena and Colbie together. They really liked each other at church. Maybe for a little scrapbooking?
