My Quiet Books (FINALLY)

This had been a project that I have always wanted to do, and started a few months after Ada was born. I know you are thinking..."a few months after Ada was born, she is 8 months now. That's a long time!" Well, yes, yes it is a long time. But in my defense, there are three books and I do have a baby. I made these books with two of my sisters who were making them too. We wanted to create a quiet book(s) for church that were gospel related. We worked together on them and now have FINALLY finished and are very proud of our work. It was A TON of work, but I'm proud of what I did. Here are the books and pages that we created and made together.
