The BEST Christmas present

The best Christmas present I received this year came from my brother and sister-in-law. My sister-in-law is an avid scrapper. She does some really great stuff. I have to say the best thing she's done so far is this book. (I am a little bias!)

Here is the front cover.

One of my favorite pages, the mommy page.
When Rusty and I wrote her obituary, we each wrote her a letter. So, on my page she included my letter to Abigayl and on Rusty's page she included his.
Probably one of Rusty's favorite pages, the daddy page
And this sweet picture ends the book beautifully.
The great thing about this book is that she included the obituary we wrote, my mom's eulogy, poems I read at the service, great Bible verses and sweet quotes.
It is really nice to have a great book with lots of my favorite pictures to pick up and read every day. Most days when I pick it up, I can't look through it with out the water works. It's just shocking that she was really real. She is so perfect and so sweet and I feel like having her was a dream. Being able to look through this book helps me know she was real.

That was such a sweet idea! What a nice gift to get. By the looks of the pictures, she is very good at doing the scrapbooking.
