Not really a Christmas card...

Merry Christmas Michael...

How could I resist!  My baby sister M has a huge crush on my friend 
Suzanne's boy M.  They did a photo shoot together and since then they 
are"in love."  My M is out of school for the holidays and came over to 
hang out.  I love it when she comes to play.  She takes over and comes 
up with the best games for my kids.  They are in heaven today.  Especially, 
since the last three weeks have been pretty boring (trying to feel better).
I couldn't resist a five minute session of my gorgeous sister outside in 
the snow.  Here are the few I took!

December challenge...

This month the challenge is to focus on the details of the month.  I'm always 
a bit hesitant to post my version of the challenge because Carin ALWAYS 
has something amazing!  Nevertheless, I love to participate.  It gives me 
something to look for and to keep in the back of my mind as I go throughout 
the month.  This is my version of detail.  It's the detail that this month is 
centered around, Christ.  This hangs in my front room and reminds me often
of who He was.  I reflect upon Him as I sit in my big black chair.  Well, now 
that big black chair has been replaced with our Christmas Tree.  Today, as I 
was coming down the stairs I noticed the tree lights in the image.  It made 
me smile.  So this is the little detail I wanted to share with you...  May you 
remember what the true meaning of Christmas is this year!  

Snow boots!

So last weekend it was pretty snowy and my kids were anxious to get out in it.  
This is the first year I've bought snow boots, so they wanted to see how they held up.
They had a great time for about ten minutes, before they got too cold.
Their boots held up though and they keep asking to go out again... ten minutes at a time.

Red Rocks!

On Friday night, I had the opportunity to go to the Red Rocks Utah Gymnastics
season opener.  It's the night they showcase the gymnasts who will be competing this season.
They have face painting, meet the gymnasts and get autographs.  They do a semi-meet type
thing where the girls perform on the events for the fans to see.  Preston, who has
been a photographer at their meets for years made it possible for me to join him on the floor. 
My dear friend Suzanne was first offered the chance, but 
because she is such a great friend and knows a little of what gymnastics is to me, 
passed it up to allow me to go down instead.  I am so grateful for such good friends.  
I had a FABULOUS time.  These are a couple
images I got that night.  To view more, click here.

My MJ girl!

She looked so cute on Thanksgiving day in her Matilda Jane!  I just had to post.  
She could be their next model, don't you think?

Do they get any cuter than this?

Not in my opinion!

Star Mill

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this place.  I just couldn't believe all that there was!

I tagged along...

So I like to tag along with my friend Suzanne, cause she tags along with me.
We've become quite the pair!
This time it was a friend of a friend.  I didn't know this family at all, but
I enjoyed being able to go and photograph them.  Just a few favs...

True Love

This morning was a LOT of fun for me.  Randi came down with her family from Idaho.  
She wanted some family photos and asked Suzanne if she could do them for her.  
Of course, I tagged along (somewhat selfishly cause I wanted to see Randi too!) and 
I'm so glad I did.  The three of us were on a cruise together as single girls and now 
we're all married (we all married within 2 months of each other and had our last 
babies within two months of each other too).  It was so great to see Randi and Bruce 
and their incredibly, happy, loving family.  It was a reminder to me of what life is all about.  
Thank you for letting me be apart of your morning and letting me capture 
that incredible, overflowing amount of love you two share.
You guys are SO GREAT! :) 

I love these two for so many reasons...

One reason, is just look at them... they make me smile!!!  
One reason, I smile is because of the memories and how we became friends.  
If it hadn't been for her I would have never met my husband.  
I will always be grateful for that!  
It's kinda weird how it all turned out and how our lives are so alike!  I love these guys.  
I'm sad they live in Idaho, but one day you'll move down right?  
Don't they look like newlyweds?
But as you can see... they're NOT!  
Don't they have a gorgeous little family!!!!

My favorite model

More to come, but for now just one of my favorite model... Miss Sky Hannah Banana!
Okay, I mean two!
And this is another favorite model... Miss Brookey-Brooke!


So, I know this was just posted, but I have been looking for an
opportunity to participate in Carin's challenge this month and this 
seemed like the perfect one for me.  I love catching an expression
on a child's face that you can almost know exactly what they're thinking.
This one, she noticed the birds in the sky.  They caught her attention and
she looked up.  Her eyes tell the story.  So my one word to describe would
be "wonder."  The wonder of a child speaks in this picture.

My hair lady!!!

Sorry Tiff, "hair lady" makes you sound old... AND YOU'RE NOT!!
I hope you had a great birthday on Monday!
This is my cute friend Tiff and her darling family.  She's the one that makes my
hair look amazing!  She was kind enough to let me take pictures of her cute 
little family.  Too bad they weren't up for the cold, so we'll try again another
day.  For now here are a few...

Baby blues!

I'll post more later Lyndsay, but I wanted to put up one of my favorite family pictures...
I had the opportunity to meet up with a distant cousin and take her darling little family's pictures.  Her little boy was so 
"squishy nubie."  I could just eat him up.  Look at those blue eyes and cute cheeks and 
you can see why I say that!  He was such a sport too 
coming from nice warm 75 degree weather to our cold practically freezing
weather.  You guys were SO GREAT!  I'll get more up later today.
