I have found a cheap way to preserve these memories too. Snapfish! See, Rich and I drink a lot of pop (yeah, yeah, yeah - I know it's not good for you, etc.). Coke has points that you can redeem for fun things. I have already redeemed points for magazines (not that I ever have time to read them). If you redeem 50 points (I think?), you can get 30 prints from Snapfish for free. You pay for shipping and handling. Or you could upload your prints to Snapfish and pick the ones you want to print and pick them up at Walmart (You just pay for the printing - I think it's 20 cents ?? a pic).
Geesh, did I get sidetracked there or what?! At any rate......
Speaking of milestones, our family has hit some major ones:
Mrs. Stoffa and Sarah
Mr. Morecraft and Zachary
The twins with the elementary principal, Mr. Cole
Of course, every mother of twins knows you must get the obligatory picture of them together when they reach those milestones (and I naturally took tons!).
Amanda got a job (her first one, other than babysitting, which really doesn't count) - a waitressing job at Bob Evans. She hasn't worked that much yet, but she's been spending her paychecks already, in her head - LOL!
To add insult to injury, Amanda said "Mom, this is really a BIG milestone year. This will be my last year of high school. The twins first year of high school and Nathan's first year of school." Thanks for reminding me kid!
More fun pics of "graduation night"
And this next little gem......the girls actually getting along (GASP!). Amanda was saying "Stop it, Mom!" LOL! But, I had to document this, as they don't always get along so well. Amanda actually let Sarah borrow her clothes, did Sarah's hair and put some make up on her. And Sarah let her do it. It was fun listening to them talking too. Reminded me of when my sister did those things with me! That's the kind of memories I'm glad my kids will have too!
