    So many great layouts and memories! I just realized that Simon looks exactly like Chris and Anna looks just like you, how wonderful!
    The first picture of Simon and Anna is so precious it brought me to tears to see how much he loves his little sister.

    This is such an inspiring post! It reminds me to take more pictures, and scrap more often. Life goes by so fast, and without scrapbooking it will all become a fuzzy memory.
