Memories are like keepsakes, always to be treasured.
This silver photo album was given to me by my friend, Lisa, after Yusef was born.
It's hard to see the detail but a picture is engraved on the front as is his name and date of birth. According to this, he was born on a Tuesday. That's something I never would have remembered.
When he was a baby, he loved stuffed animals with big eyes, or in this case, a clown, and he would just sit there for the longest time totally entertained and mesmerized by their faces. Sometimes he would even talk to them.
Here's a picture of me when I was 6 months old. Check out that long sweeping curl on top of my head. So cute!
And the silver frame holds a photo of my childhood pet, Toni. She was with me from the time I was 2 years old until I was 17. It's amazing how 26 years later, I can honestly say I still miss her. She was the best dog ever. Her favorite song was Shake Your Booty by KC and the Sunshine Band. When she heard that song, she would get on her back and shake her rearend from side to the side. It was the funniest thing ever. The unconditional love you receive from a pet is just so precious. She was a best friend and more for all those years.
This photo album holds pictures of friends.
Our friends become our families, especially when we are so far away from home.
My most favorite photos are the candid ones. I just love this picture of Sam walking with Zack along the beach when he was about 15 months old. I have one similar of Sam walking with Yusef when he was about the same age.

I hope you are having a super Sunday. Speaking of super, it's Super Bowl Sunday. Yusef wants his dad to wake him up at 3 am so he can watch the game. I don't think that is gonna happen. By the time we are up and getting ready for school, the game will likely still be going on. If you're a football fan, enjoy the game!
Peace & blessings, Tammy
