**For those of you who have asked, I made my blog book before blurb started having problems with blogger. I got really lucky, but they are trying to rectify the problem, I just hope they get it figured out for my 2009 blog book**
For family home evening this Monday I had had a plan that we should write a family mission statement so we know who we are, what we stand for and what we hope to accomplish. It was on the whole successful, with a few outlandish requests (like Brett is the King) we set to paper out MISSION. Terry and I then took the things we had decided were part of our mission statement and put it into a true mission statement form. I then took it and with a lot of pain staking screw ups with the vinyl (should have just called Shannon) we now have it posted on our home for all to read but mostly to remind us who we are and what we stand forfor future reference, always use a level when placing vinyl on your walls.
As for the "Blurb" I mentioned in my post title I am referring to my blog book. if you haven't heard of blurb, check it out. It is a website that has a down loadable program that you can use to take your blog (or other material) and make it into a book. i took the first year of my blog and spent the week Terry was in Grand Cayman putting it together. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I had 5 printed for parents and grandparents. I is our family record in print. Here a few pictures so you can see. The page of Brett was a digital scrapbook layout i just added to put in a snipit about his junior festival. I think if I ever get some time i will just switch to digital scrapbooking and have the layouts put into a blurb book!
