Christmas Album

I come from a long line of Christmas-card-picture-displayers.Okay so I don't know if anyone else before her did it, but my mom always kept her Christmas card pictures up on the fridge until the next set of cards started coming in. Then she put them in an album.
Although my pictures are on this wall instead of on the fridge, I decided to follow her example and make my own Christmas picture album.
Here's the outside. I got the album on sale at Target and bought some extra pages so it will last for a few more years. The card in the window is an old one from my friend Stephanie. You can't really see it here, but it says "Merry Christmas."
The earliest pictures I had saved were from 2005, but the bigger collections start in 2006.
On some of the pages I cut out designs and words from Christmas cards past but I am no scrapbooking genius. And I have no time to make myself one.
Now we'll be able to look back in years to come and see how we've all aged. Aged gracefully that is.

No offense to the Momma-Rama, but your album is much more appealing than the stick-them-all-in-at-random ones that she has going. Of course, the messiness of those albums might be mainly my fault since it was usually my job to put all the pics in them before the new ones started rolling in, and needless to say, I did not make much of an effort.

Anyways - I like this! Looks good!

That is RAD. Now I wish I had kept all of ours instead of throwing them away.
