September Scrapbook Pages
journaling: We celebrated Mommy Pat’s 88th birthday with a lunchtime party at Forest Hills. We ate Chinese food and Italian Creme cake and she opened gifts. Mommy Pat said the best gift was that we were all there to help her celebrate it.

journaling: Brenna’s first year in the Dolls they did a character jazz dance to “Hair” sung by the Broadway Kids. Every family came up with their own costume, and we were told to try and keep it in period style. I found some 60’s-inspired pants and a peasant top at the mall, and then did a little sewing to tweak them a bit more. I added some dark brown suede triangle pieces to the pant legs to give a big bell-bottom look. I wanted a suede vest with long fringe and couldn’t find anything like what I envisioned, so I bought an Indian & cowboy costume pattern and tweaked it to add 8 inch fringe on the bottom edge. A fringed headband, random beads strung on knotted pieces of fringe, and lots of peace signs and flower patches were the finishing touches to our 1960s hippie costume. The girls all had a great time dancing and swinging their hair around during this fun number.

journaling: It’s hard to explain my relationship with Dale VanBlair to other people. We found each other through the Heavy Bombers Yahoo Group 12 years ago when I started searching for information on Grandad Al’s B-24 crew during World War II. Posting that message on the group was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Not only did I find more information than I had ever hoped, but I found a Godly man who added me and my family as part of his own. Dale helped me learn more about my own grandfather through his stories of their time together during the war, which was priceless since he died when I was one and have no significant memories of him myself. We keep in touch by email and Facebook, and it was special to have Dale here for a visit this September just to visit me and our family. It was definitely time well spent.

And a couple of pages with the fabulously spooky new Studio Mix 31- Oogie Boogie at scrapbookgraphics. I don’t know what Brenna was doing in dance class when I snapped this particular photo, but I thought I caught a good ‘scared’ face. Not throwing out those occasional randomly odd photos can be handy sometimes!
