All Ready for Washington DC!

All ready!
We're all ready for our trip! We leave tomorrow night, and arrive in Washington DC friday morning!! Do keep us in your prayers for a safe trip and for good health and great family time! Ryan had a minor asthma attack two days ago, and now I'm armed with inhalers and so on, to help the boys beat the cold!

Yesterday we had a great laugh! Gim had announced yesterday that he bought new memory cards (2GB) for his camera for the trip. When he came home after tennis last evening and was trying to load the new cards, he opened the plastic cover, took off the scotch tape, and stared in unbelief at the card - 256mb?! Jared had replaced the card with the one he had in his camera, and taken 65 photos while Gim was at tennis!!!

Here's the little terror, at one of our beach resort trips in March. Oh, the template link is below

Below is a layout of Ryan, photos taken in NZ year before last, but sentiments as of now.
Journaling reads:
You knew the alphabet at 18 months.Could spell 50 words at two. But you could not speak in sentences till nearly four. About the same time you started reading! Since then you’ve baffled us & doctors and therapists, and now have an opinion on everything and is doing so well in the gifted class. Only God knew what He has in store for you, and we thank Him for the miracle that is you..
We are exceedingly thankful for all that God has done for him, to us, it is nothing short of a miracle, and we constantly remind ourselves.

Oh, may I share one of my all time favorite songs:
GIVE THANKS WITH A GRATEFUL HEART

GIVE THANKSTO THE HOLY ONE

GIVE THANKS FOR HE'S GIVEN JESUS CHRIST, HIS SON

AND NOW LET THE WEAK SAY I AM STRONG

LET THE POOR SAYI AM RICH BECAUSE OF WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE FOR US

GIVE THANKS...

  15. Hey Yin.
    I hope you are having the time of your life in DC. Here in Minnesota, we are getting our 1st big snowfall - wonder if that will get to you.
    I am ready to do a 10 photo layout and thought I would check your blog first and sure enough, #13, is perfect. Should be up at GDS no later than tomorrow night.
    Thanks Kathy [kattyzak]

  16. I love your templates! I can't even tell you how much I love them--I love most of all how many pics you can put on one! I have 5 kids, so the more pics I can do on one page, the more scrappbooking I can get done! Thank you! and thank you for offering them as freebies! I am kind of a junkie!
