Scrapping in memory of my Dad







The time has come, I'm ready!



I really wanted to scrapbook the last Christmas we had with Dad before he passed away. I know it will be an important page for my boys (and of course myself) to look back on. Christmas 2008 was special. Dad dressed up as Santa and handed out prezzies to all the families that were with us that day. I got some great pics. This week i felt ready to face them, and happy to look back on the warm memories of our Last Christmas together. He was the kindest most generous man. Remebering him giving to so many people is just so perfect..



Thanks for sharing this with me.

This is such a beautiful way to remember your dear dad, Sarah. I especially love those big smiles on him and your son's face in the bottom page. Treasures.
