What we've been doing

My little Amelia Earhart
Brynn did a report on her for school. She got an A! Way to go Brynn
Hailey attempted to set the world record at hula hooping. She stopped about 15 minutes before the record because she said her hips were going numb. Silly girl! (she's eating dinner in this picture)
Brynn got this cool new light/mirror. She was doing her makeup and I had to grab my camera and get a picture. Love this girl!
I came home from school one day for lunch and My baby was asleep on the couch. I really enjoy when he is asleep!

The little ladies

My friend and fellow photographer
Nikki and I get together often and do "fun shoots" She always tells me to bring my girls. I'm never going to tell her no! Here are just a few pictures of her amazing work and a few that I took. Enjoy!

where have I been?

I feel like I haven't been blogging as much as I would like to. It's because I started COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL! Yup! I'm going back to school. I have NO life anymore because school is Monday-Friday from 8am-4:30pm. Its a lot of fun but also lots of book work. WHO KNEW?! I can say I've learned to wrap a perm in 44 minutes! I can also do an awesome mowhawk!

Soccer kids

Hailey has been playing Soccer now for 4 and 1/2 years. She has really gotten good at it.
She is now playing with an all girls team. They are called the Red Hots! Last season they took 3rd overall and the season before that they were the champs. We'll have to see about this year. I think we will see another championship!
Hailey is the teams Keeper. She does a great job at it and really likes it. She is one of the smaller girls on the team but that doesn't stop her! She will attack you if you are coming her way with that ball. She will NOT let you score on her! She says "bring it on"

Carter started soccer in September. A lady in our ward put together a little soccer team
with a bunch of kids from our ward. I thought Carter would do really well and just
love this! I THOUGHT WRONG! He isn't really into it all that much. If someone
steels the ball he cries! If someone blocks the ball he cries! If he falls down he cries!
I do have to say he is getting a little better! The last game he did play for a bout 5 minutes!
The little team goes until December so I'll keep you updated on how he does at the end.
Maybe he will improve! Lets hope!

First Day

Today was the first day of school! Also the last year for Hailey in elementary school. I can't believe she goes to middle school next year! WOW! Thats kinda scary. Here she is with Mr. Edwards her 5th grade teacher.

Brynn is in 3rd grade this year. My kids are growing up! This year she is in Mrs. Cushman's class. She is so excited to be in a new class and make new friends.

Good luck this year little ladies. You will do great! I love you so much!

Back to school 2011

Took the girls and their friends out for a fun back to school shoot! It was so much fun except that we were all melting! I think we will do this every year! I can't believe that I have a 5th grader this year! That means next year she starts middle school! WOW!

The attempt

So for Brynn's Baptism we got all the cousins together REALLY fast one morning before littleEmmy had to leave back to Salt Lake. We took probably 50 pictures. These are the best! My favorite is the last one of them all laughing. Want to know why they were all laughing (with the exception of little Mia who was sick so she can cry if she wants too) Well...Their aunt Ashley tried to get them to all look at me and make them she found one of Noah's pirate daggers and decided to stab herself with it! GREAT IDEA RIGHT!!! well the boys thought it was hilarious and started acting pretty funny. That made Hailey and Brynn laugh and for Emmy..she's use to her mom being silly. And again. poor Mia was sick!
But I love pictures like this. Probably because this is how they always are!

Favorite time of year!

I know I always say I love when the trees bloom..blah blah blah...well guess what? I LOVE WHEN THE TREES BLOOM! there yup! i said it! favorite time! i love the picture of hailey on her little beach cruiser riding with the blossoms on each side of her. these blossom pictures were just a quick snap! just so pretty!

WPPI mustache

I had the chance to attend WPPI! It was SO much fun! I brought this fun little mustache home for the kids. They thought it was the COOLEST ever.

Meet Charlie!

This is Charlie! He is our new member of the family! Isn't he cute!

My goodnight note

Went to get in bed the other night and this was waiting for me on my pillow.
This is what makes me keep going day after day!

I hope you understand this very important decision you have made. Brynn you are such a joy. Keep being who you are and you will go far in this lifetime.
Right now you are in 2nd grade and loving it. You have many nicknames such as Brynnie, birdie, bb, brynnstorm and ninja. Yes I said NINJA! You love to wrestle and be silly!
