Thanks so much everyone for helping with this. I'm so glad that I found this forum as I don't know anyone (yet) in real life who scraps and has time to help me with all my questions.
I have a couple of gaps in the continuity of years - both were very stressful times and I didn't take any photos. I'm hoping this can somehow be rectified or at least made up for.
It's good to know that other people have taken on similar tasks and succeeded. I'm very excited, just hoping I can do justice to all these wonderful memories of my kiddos.
Thanks again everyone. I've been browsing your galleries to learn more - I'm soooo impressed!!!
