Natashia - yes, that's her name, Natashia, although I've been calling her Pun'kin since she was born. It all started innocently enough. When my sister first told me they were going to name the baby Natashia, I thought that was an awfully long name for a little baby. So I decided to call her Natty. However, when I went to the hospital to meet her for the first time (where she promptly threw up on my favorite wool blazer), I knew she was going to be my Pun'kin. Now that she's a teenager, I'm trying to get out of the habit of using my nickname for her when we are around other people so as not to be an embarrassment. :>)

Today I've been working on a Photo Album Scrapbook of Pun'kin's Natashia's visit here over the past three years. I started with an identical album as the one I completed three months ago of the twins' visits. I typed up a short summary of each visit and then added in the "extra" photos from each visit. These are photos that were near duplicates of ones I plan to create layouts with (or have already), events that only had one or two photos, and miscellaneous photos that didn't go onto a layout - like eating breakfast or waiting patiently as Uncle Robbie's car gets towed. As I worked through my remaining photos from each of her six visits, I added them to a list of layouts I want to create. In fact, I've already started working on one of the layouts and will share it with you soon. Here's a look at a few pages in Pun'kin's Visits (2007-2010) Photo Album Scrapbook.

I love this little girl teenager and truly enjoy her visits. As her schedule gets busier and busier, I hope she'll still find time to come up and stay a few days every once in a while!


  1. What lovely pages and what a lovely keepsake. One of my nieces is called Natasha and we just call her Tash x

  2. how lucky she (and the others!) are to have you for an Aunt! I'm sure she will still make time for you!

  3. What a beautiful keepsake. Every girl should have an aunt who loves to record the fun they have together!

  4. What a gorgeous album! I'm sure she will still love visiting :)


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
