alex's life book

  • In early 2006, I began creating a life book for my daughter, Alex. Click here for links to articles describing my experience.
  • And for those of you who are more digitally inclined, in late 2006, I recreated key pages of Alex's lifebook for an article I wrote for AlphaMom, using Scrapblog.

    You can see the final digital result (and leave comments, if you'd like!) here.

Snap! Baby, I'd turn lesbian for you!! ;>

You look fantastic!


Rrrrrrooaaaaar! Oh..dare I say it (yes) ... methinks the feathers might be.. flyin' later on. I mean, if Marcus knows whats good for him (and I'm SURE he does). My husband said you "look hott" and also "see babe, she's almost 39, we've got all the time in the world." (He knows you're the mum of the Adorable A.) Come to think of it, that is prob. not surprising since I'm forever saying, "Oh my god! Look how cuuute she is today!" Red is your friend, I think you should wear it often! Also - those 20 lbs really show! You look fab!


So many excused for such a lovely couple of photos. Remind me to smack you in July.

But if you tell me where to get one of those belly button things, I might not. ;)


I think you look fabulous. No excuses necessary!


::drooling:: Um...WOW!! You're HOT!!

I want one of those belly button thingies.


Yes, yes, yes! You look red hot and beautiful. That costume was worth whatever you paid for it.

Thank you for posting pictures. Now go get your wine on, girl!


You look absolutely amazing; no one would guess you're anywhere near 39.


Hush child! You look absolutely fabulous! Wow, have fun liming and wining.


when I'm 39, I want to be JUST LIKE YOU. hey, I want to be like you NOW!


Girl, you look AMAZING! Do you know how much money I would give to look like that? Damn, some people just got it in the genes.

I'd like to know alex's response to seeing you in this outfit. I'd also like to see marcus' outfit and his response to seeing you in this outfit (if it's not too x-rated).

Good job - you look FANTASTIC!


You look fabulous and certainly don't need any conditions placed on the photos! Enjoy your week!


You look fabulous! Seriously!

Alexis just saw your photo and said "She's beeoutiful!!" :o)


As my father said "don't complain, don't explain"

You look great!


Karen, I turned 36 this year and I WISH I could pull that outfit off like that!! You look amazing, girl! Have a great Carnival!


Karen, you look gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!! I am one that’s use to seeing you in business attire but you are definitely working those feathers!!!!!!!! I hope that you all have a great time winin………..

Once again you look great and Im so glad you shared this with us.


you look FANTASTIC! have FUN!


I honestly don't know what you're concerned about--you look FABULOUS (for any age)! When I lived in the tropics, I saw all SORTS of body types during Carnival...and NONE of 'em exhibited the tiniest inhibition about shaking ALL of what they had. Isn't that part of the beauty of the tradition??


Woohoo!!! You GO GIRL!!!! You look fantastic!!! And from one girl whose lost weight to another, we DESERVE to look hot!!! :)

Have fun!



WOW! Just WOW! You look awesome. You were worried you don't? Yikes. I've lost 30 pounds, and STILL couldn't carry off that outfit. Mainly because I'm so darn short. Be proud, dear, you look wonderful. And I love the belly button thing. Again, WOW!


You Better Work it Girl!


You look fabulous!

Have a great time and we'll be waiting for a complete update of your debauchery (if you can remember any of it!)


well, you look mighty good for an almost 39 year old woman and you are bolder than most wearing that outfit, girl!! have a great time.


I agree...PalEEEZE. You look hot and 39 never looked better. Have a blast this week!


Oh, honey, you're beautiful!


Ya look hot gurfrenn!
