1: Dear Daddy, Merry Christmas! I know that it took me longer than I planned, but I finished the scrapbook that told you that I was making of our trip to California. I have never used this program to make a scrapbook before, so I hope that everything prints the way that I intended it to. You always take us on amazing trips each summer and I really appreciate all of the patience and planning that it requires. I love you! Lots of Love, Melissa
