Why do I scrapbook?

This question was asked by Christy at Scrapgarden as our blog challenge.

Wow is that a loaded question...there are so many reasons that I scrapbook. Our 6 year old asked me that too. This sweet little cherub face looking up at me with his kooky little smile asking a question that he really wanted to know that answer to. I looked at him and said 'this is why...moments like this' He looked utterly confused and didn't really understand my answer but that is why. To record the everyday moments that affect my life. The moments that make my heart sing because our boys are laughing so hard, the moments that reveal their complete innocence, the moments that are everyday, not very exciting, nothing really out of the ordinary moments that make my life extraordinary. I want to record everything I can so when they are grown up they look back and relive those moments that helped mold them into who they are. To show everyone how much I truly, deeply, madly love my husband Jon from the very bottom of my soul. I want future generations to know us...really know what we were like, not just by the photos but by the story behind the photos. They will know that I ove my family with every fiber of my being and my scrapbooks are a testament to my love for my family.

Don't forget to come over to Kitty's Kloset for a month long Anniversary Extravaganza!!!! The first challenges have been issued so come over and join the fun!
