Last year I did a Nine Years of Simon post featuring a layout from each year of his life. That was such a fun process of looking back that I decided to do it again this year with ten different layouts.

I'll have a birthday party weekend recap to share tomorrow.

    I think is is so wonderful that Simon and Anna will have all of these wonderful layouts to look at and remind them not only of what they looked like and did as they grew up but also to see the love you have for them. What a great job you have done with that.

    What is it about the then and now stories/pictures that speak our souls. Love it that Simon will have these to look at and share for his whole life.

    Happy birthday Simon! Blessings to you and your beautiful family Ali. I can't believe I've watched him grow so much through Creating Keepsakes, your books, and now your blog and website.

    One of the best joys a mother can have is being a parent. This project expresses how Ali enjoyed her role to Simon. I enjoyed viewing the layouts. Happy 10th birthday Simon!
