Jouranling: The journaling is on 2 tags, tucked behind some photos on the first page of my layout. The first one says: Boy how time flies! It doesn't seem like that long ago that Christina and I were celebrating our birthdays as children. Now we're both moms and we're celebrating our kids birthdays together. I have to admit, this was somthing that I had always looked forward to in life. I remember us as kids, playing with our cousins, and what a blast we had growing up together. It's weird how life changes and how people that we were once close to, we aren't anymore. I hope that you guys always remain good friends because you sure do enjoy each other now. The second one says: This was Vivian's 3rd birthday. We celebrated it up in Santa Barbara at a local park, down the street from Christina and Jason's house. Being that it was November, we were surpirsed that is was such a nice, sunny day. You guys had so much fun together swinging, running around, and blowing bubbles. There's nothing that you like more than playing outside. We had lunch and then opened some presents, but neither Christina or I let you guys have any cake because we wanted you both to be such healthy eaters. Oh well, live and learn I guess. (Nov. 2003)
