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.

Sounds Soothing!

Something I use to love to do was go to the waterfall (in the Galleria area) and read a book while my daughter and fiancé play with her over sized ball in the over sized field! With them both running and tackling me every twenty minutes or so and laughing hysterically. What’s funny is that they caught me off guard every time! I guess the books were that interesting.....

Margaret in Germany

Kennedi and I ride our bikes on one of the many paved biking/walking/rollerblading/running trails near our house. Nothing caps off a nice long bike ride like a stop for ice cream, for Kennedi, of course.

Hopefully we can continue when we move to North Carolina in July.


Our most recent favorites are: playing catch in the front yard and walking down to our neighborhood pond to fish.

My 3 year old has an interesting wind up and my 9 year cannot believe "Mom" will bait a hook! :-)


Walking is probably our favorite thing to do as a family. It's free, it's easy, and there's nothing like seeing the neighborhood through the eyes of a 2.5 yo. Everything is an adventure, no matter how many times we walk around the same streets. We often end up at the local library on our walk, which adds an entirely new element to the fun as my husband and I point out amusing books to each other in the children's section.


Fly kites, throw frisbees or balls, walks, bike rides, swim, watch movies (we usually have a movie night at home once a week), play video games, listen to music and watch the kids dance, hike, travel, go out to eat (don't do it very often anymore now that we have six kids), go for drives into the mountains, read books, and play board games.
