Chris & Martin's ScrapBook - 2010

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away.

Annually we are lucky, as we are invited back to our old neighborhood (1985 to 2002) to join a February multi-person birthday celebration with the Acklens and our other neighbors. It's also fun as the folks who live across the street in our old house (which we loved for 18 years and on which our current house was based with added stable & studio) invite us over to see their remodeling work.  Very fun!
