Happy Halloween!

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

I love Halloween! I love putting thought into what everyone is going to dress up as and putting it all together and turning it into a great costume. Fortunately the kids do, too! This year has been crazy with everything that is going on in our house, but we managed to get it together (with plenty of help from my sister… thanks Trish!) and the kids were thrilled with their costumes once again.

When we asked Chase what he wanted to be for Halloween, without hesitation he said “a pumpkin.” So as of yesterday (when he got dressed up for his school Halloween party) he has been telling us his name is ‘Jack.’ We will see if that sticks now that he has taken his costume off.

Here’s Jack…

James loved it when all the kids kept asking him what was making him move. It really threw them off that his feet were not on the ground. James definitely got a lot of comments on his costume!

Help Me!!!

It was a close call, but I would have to say that Annika stole the night! I can’t tell you how many times we heard “That’s the best costume I’ve seen all night!” and she had her picture taken multiple times. (One guy said he was texting it right then to a friend because it was so great!) The people up at the school told me that they decided if there were a costume contest then she definitely would have won. :)

What’s for dinner???

There was one slight issue with it, however… She couldn’t do stairs very well. (And around here, most houses have stairs leading up to their door.) We kept telling her not to even go up them — to stand at the bottom to yell “Trick or Treat” and of course each time she did that, they went to her to drop the candy in. But every few houses or so, she would make her way up the stairs and slowly feel her way back down with her feet. After about the 25th time that I told her not to even try the stairs because she was going to fall, sure enough! Poor thing looked like she was falling in slow motion, and landed face down stuck in the box with her feet sticking out the other end. After she stopped crying and we all knew she would survive, I couldn’t help but laugh at the image. Shhh… don’t tell her that!

I dressed up as a good witch and Justin dressed up as the same thing that he does every year, Bronco Mendenhall (or whomever BYU’s head coach is at the time,) by wearing his BYU attire. The kids have decided that he celebrates Halloween many, many times throughout the year if that’s his idea of a costume.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!

Just One For Now…

   Posted by: Administrator    in Sessions

I celebrated my birthday doing a super fun “Trash The Dress” session with Hayden. She was great to work with and I can’t wait to sit down and work on the rest of the images we did. I couldn’t help myself, though, and just had to post what is probably my favorite image of the day. It just happened to be the very last one we took. I would say we ended on a good note. Hope you like it Hayden!

Our Best Friends…

   Posted by: Administrator    in Sessions

We couldn’t have asked for better friends than the Parkers. We have been through a lot and they are always there for us. Our kids play so well together and always look forward to the next time we get together with them. Thanks, guys, and here’s to another 12 years! We love you!

…my little non-stop-talker. Your questions and 4-year-old insight make us laugh! I will be so sad the day I don’t hear that sweet voice of yours as much as I do now. Your frequent and out of the blue “I love you, Mommy” will never get old!

…my strong-willed little guy. Inside that tough exterior, you are such a loving and emotional young man. That is one of the many things that I love about you.

…my tender-hearted, beautiful little girl. I am so appreciative of her willingness to help, and so very proud of her kindness towards others.

My Sweet Babies

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

Well, technically they are not babies (even my 4-year-old reminds me of that!) but to me they will always be my babies. These are my all-time favorite 3 pictures of the three of them together (in no particular order):

I finally did it…

   Posted by: Administrator    in Etc., Family

I have officially created my “Web log.” Do you have a word that makes you cringe just hearing it? Um, yeah, that’s the word ‘blog’ for me, so you won’t hear me call it that any time in the near future. I think that word is part of the reason I have been putting it off for so long. But, here I am, introducing my new Web log with the most appropriate image I could think of for the occasion.

Annika did this for a school art competition. She set the whole thing up — metered the light for the correct camera settings, laid out string for the word “WOW” (that was the theme of the competetion) and used my remote shutter release to take 11 pictures (herself 10 times, laying on the string so she knew the correct place to be and one of just the grass,) and then she did all of the Photoshop work by herself. Everyone at the school who has seen it has been completely impressed (I know I am!) so we will see what the judges think next month.
