Looking through Carlin's photo album

"Mom has always been very big into photos. She's so sweet and sentimental about it."
-Erin Paine

Can you imagine organizing childhood photos of nineteen kids? In preparation for Carlin's college graduation party, Kelly stays up nearly all night putting together an album for Carlin. Everyone is eager to flip through it.

  1. Awe i can't wait to do that. I love Kelly's ideas.

  2. “Always very big into”?

    1. That means that she photos are very meaningful to her.

  3. Such a lovely and time consuming gift.

  4. Well that should explain all the pictures to all those who think they take to many

  5. There seem to be very few pictures of Carlin alone in that album. I guess that's how it is with 19 kids--you are always in with a bunch of kids. Great clip!
