Rain forest Room (9 pictures)
Journaling: 'The magic of watching the 4 of you explore an environment that was completely new to you...The wonder in the way you observe and discover everything around you...the bananas on the trees, the fish in the pond, the overhanging branches of a low-growing tree. It makes me happy to my core to see you enjoy each other and the world around you so completely. -Rain forest Room, Meijer Garden'
Just One Gift (4 pictures)
Journaling: 'Just one gift. That's what I always used to say to my mom every Christmas Eve. Since I alternated Christmas's between my Mom & Dad's houses, I didn't have many real traditions for the holiday. But this was one I could always count on. In fact, sometimes if I didn't ask, Mom would ask me...she never was very patient!! Well, the tradition lives on. Before bed this Christmas Eve, you got to open one gift...not a show-stopping gift, not the grand final, but something to satisfy that craving for Christmas, if only just a little. Well, this year we got you a box of books...I Spy, Eric Carle, manners, Bear Snores on, and lots lots more. I was a little nervous you would be disappointed...no one asked for books for Christmas. But you couldn't have been more excited!! I'm thrilled that this one gift made you as happy as it used to make me. Love, Mom'

Smile (3 pictures)
Journaling: 'Smile...Apparently a word that can be interpreted many different ways. Let's see, there's the Allosaurus smile, the scary tiger smile, and the I'm trying to pretend not to smile smile. If only the photographer could be lucky enough to catch that genuine Isaac smile...the one that spreads from your lips to your eyes and all the way from your head to your toes. That smile is PRICELESS.'
