Nicole is the most wonderful sister in the whole world. I am so lucky to have her in my life. I could never express how truly grateful I am to have her in my life. She is my best friend. Thank you Nicole for being such a great sister, friend, Aunt, Mother, and so much more.
I am so sad that we can't be together on this day. Know that I am thinking about you, Love you and can't wait to see you in a week!
Hello, hello are you out there? This just seems to be the last thing on my list to do or even wants. :) I really enjoy it once I sit down, but getting me here in front of this computer is the trial.
Anyway, I don't even know where to begin so I will start with the most recent. The girls and I just returned home from a great week in Utah with the family. It is so great to be able to travel with my girls, though challenging. Also, to see my adorable nephews. These babies are so fun to watch grow. The personalities are so different and each make me laugh just watching what they do. Though it is always great to come home.
The trip was planned around a photo shoot of the babies. Six month shots, seven for Dhylan. We all take our babies to this photographer in Utah. She is amazing. However this photo shoot was much more challenging then expected.
This is how I imagined it going...
This is how it actually went...
My sweet little "Angel Baby" was not such an angel this day. Well actually the first picture was taken a few days later because she was so rotten and Skye was so gracious as to let us come back before we headed home. Thanks to that we got some great solo shots. I wish I was lucky enough to have pics. like these for all my girls when they were babies.
We really didn't even get to get good photo of all of my kids together, we were lucky to get what we did. Oh well, maybe later huh Lis? :)
Thanks to Nat for getting me lined up with the photographer and always making sure I make the time for making these memories.
Well we are home now and back to "normal" life. Kendahl and Payton are doing great at dance. It is definitely one of the highlights of my week to watch them learn and achieve the goals that are set. Payton finally is getting "hop-step" or skipping. SOOO HARD to learn for my little 3 yr. old. However, she can not only write her name, but everyone in the family, (with verbal help from mom). It amazes me how much they learn from just observing their surroundings.
Kendahl is almost graduated from Pre-School and preparing for kindergarten. I have to put on that brave face for her, though I am scared to death.
We also recently put our home on the market. I know what the HELL are we thinking? I would like to get into a different house before K starts kindergarten so we will see what happens. So to all of you, if you know anyone send them our way. Thanks! That is about it. Work is crazy busy for Bradon and the rest just falls where it may. Raising a family, work, trying to find time for relaxing or just sitting on our butts doing nothing. Tiring as it may seem I love it all.
Well that is all I have time for now. Sorry to cut it short, family is home and baby is waking up. Love ya...Late! Enjoy the pics.
This year it was so much fun for Kendahl and Payton to get ready for Christmas. They were very prepared to let Santa know what they wanted. They also wrote him letters and delivered them to the great big Santa's Mailbox. However the naughty Payton showed up to deliver her letter. Ha! It was still a great memory.
I just had to post a couple of these pictures. She is just so darn cute! People probably think I forgot about my other kids but they just don't hold still long enough, nor do they let me play dress up with them as my models. :)
Well Thanksgiving was great. We had my family here and celebrated Thanksgiving at our house. It was quite an adventure trying to find a spot for everyone to sleep, but it was so worth the crowded rooms I hope. Waking up to the three babies together was so much fun. We would get up and lay them all by each other. It was great to see these sweet babies together.
Kendahl and Payton also enjoyed Thanksgiving. They are my little cooks. Thanks to Papa they now have these cute aprons and hats. They just had to wear them and be the "Big Helpers" in the kitchen with the Thanksgiving feast.
Thanks to my family for coming to my home. Family makes our holidays perfect, you certainly did ours. We love you.
We still live in the same old town and will probably never leave. Good old Idaho does us well and we enjoy raising our family here.
Bradon...this is what he likes to be called now...and I celebrated our 7th anniversary in July. My love grows for him everyday! He is a great husband and father. Kendahl is 5 and she is just getting ready to start kindergarten. Just thinking of that big day makes me want to cry. Payton is 3 and keeps me on my toes. She is the most strong willed little girl I know. Both Kendahl and Payton started dance this year. Man is that a challenge. Thought they would love it, but I bribe them every week to go and participate! Silly girls.
Dhylan turned 1 on August 9th. She is such a blessing. I remember why I keep having babies and why I want MORE!They remind me every day why I wanted to be a mom. They are my pride and joy.
My life is so great and I can't imagine my life without my family.
