scrapbook

Diane, here are the scrapbook pages. I hope you can see/read them fine, becuase it took forever for me to upload them! I (with the help of caroline jacobson) did this book for jari and anita, and gave it to them last night. It is an 8x8 book. I had fun doing it! if you click on each one, it will enlarge it so you can read it. At least it does on my computer! Frans also made a DVD slideshow for them of pictures from us and ones we collected from a lot of their friends...turned out really nice










I have really been dreading this move for a long time now...yes, I am happy for them, but at the same time, part of me was hoping that it wouldn't ever happen! I started taking pictures for this album last fall, and it seemed like the time would never come for them to go, and that was fine with me! Now it's here, tho it still seems kind of unreal, as I'm sure it does for them too! I'm sure we will realise even more after they are gone how nice it is/was to have some of the "kuoppala" family here! You tend to take things like that for granted!
Anyways, I guess that's enuf rambling!
Happy sunday to everyone, we are off to the marjanens for "thanksgiving" as soon as frans gets home from church!

I have to say that I have been so fortunate to have such wonderful family living so close to us for so long. The book will have many hours of flipping pages done by me .. with my kleenex box. It is truly an unbelievable treasure to have. They also made a cd slideshow of pictures that were collected from people. It is incredible! I could never thank you enough Frans & Jenny. We are a very lucky family to have in our lives such wonderful people.
