Princess Nicole

I had fun practicing photography with Nicole this morning. She loves her new dress-up dress and looks so cute in it. Thanks Uncle BJ and Kennedy for the donation and Grandma Krysti for bringing it over. I don't know if I'll ever get her to take it off. It's her first very own dress-up.

Engagement Pictures

Here are some of the engagement pictures I took of Matt and Torri. Aren't they adorable? :)
Thanks Matt and Torri for letting me practice photography with you. You are very patient and you make fantastic models.
If anyone else is up for letting me practice on them, let me know.

Mural at the School

I had fun doing another mural. This one is in the sick room at the girl's school. The room was so dreary and boring so I offered to brighten it up and I had a wonderful time. It took about 6 hours.

Family Pictures

Here are some pictures we took last week at Gardner Village. I'm very slowly learning about photography and I love taking pictures. I'd be happy to use anyone who is willing as guinea pigs. I can't guarantee good photos. ;) My favorite photo spot is Gardner Village and 8:00pm is a good time if you are interested. I'll give you a CD of all the photos for your time.

In My Spare Time...

This is what I like to do when I get bored. :) This is my in-law's under-the-stairs play area in their basement. The whole room is in a jungle theme and I was lucky enough to win the trust of my in-laws to paint a Tiki Hut on their walls. It is actually quite enjoyable once you get past the first brush stroke on the brand new basement walls!
PS Since I haven't posted on the blog in over a year now, whoever adds a comment to this first gets a plate of homebaked cookies. ;) You can just write: "Cookies please!"

PPPS Thanks to all my true friends who never give up on my blogging abilities.

Here are some cute pictures of the family on Halloween. Damon and I (aka Obi Wan and Leia) had fun passing out candy while Kevin (aka a bigger Obi Wan) went trick-or-treating with the girls (Cinderella and Belle). It turned out to be a fun night.

Got Vitamin E?

Aurora is always saying very cute and intelligent things. A few weeks ago at breakfast she was looking at the boxes of cereal that were on the table. She looked at me and said: “Mom, there is no vitamin E in Trix or in Strawberry Chex. But, there is in Cheerios!”

Kevin has been working on memorizing scriptures. He has these scriptures written out on 3 x 5 cards. Aurora got a hold of these cards and started copying them into her journal to practice writing letters. I was surprised when she asked me for Daddy’s cards. I told her they weren’t to play with. She said she needed them. I asked why and she showed me her journal. Sure enough, there was almost an entire scripture written in her cute little handwriting. So I got Daddy’s cards for her. Soon after I heard: “Mom, I’m missing one”. “What?” “I’m missing number 4, that is the one I was doing”. I soon found that Kevin had numbered his cards. Sure enough, number 4 was missing. I called Kevin and confirmed that he had that card with him at work. Aurora was disappointed, but I asked Kevin for the reference and soon Aurora was copying letters right out of the Book of Mormon. When Aurora finished the scripture I asked to read it. So, I was reading out of her journal and I got stuck on a few letters that were run together. I was trying to make out what it said and in a disappointed and accusatory tone Aurora said: “What Mom, you need glasses or something?”
