Makenna Belle

These pictures are of  Little Makenna Belle!  She is so sweet.
She smiled occasionally but never really cried.
I had so much fun taking pictures of her and her cute siblings!
Isn't she just one pretty
 little baby!

Maggie Rose

Maggie Rose 

was so much fun to photograph.  She put up with so much!  She started out swaddled and happy on a soft pillow, and ended up naked and cold on a black skirt!  She had to model many different head bands (not all shown:) and finally, after putting up with so much, she was dressed and snuggled by 3 loving siblings and her mother.

                         Fall is my favorite season.
                         Apple cider and pumpkin bread.
                         Vast amounts of candy.
                         Orange and yellow leaves spread across the lawn.
                         Racing through a corn maze with friends.
                         Ideas for costumes?
                         Trick or treat for life.
                         Especially because it means it's closer to Christmas!

This Moment

 {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. xx

A Horsey July and gone with our friends

Every year we have a Fourth of July party, and every year it get's more fun!  This year a girl brought her horse down to the park and was giving free rides to people! I'm pretty excited as you can tell!

Tavia sat on the horse for some pictures
Some of the girls (including me) wanted to ride the horse, but we decided to look around at the  booths for awhile.            

So an hour later when we saw them still there, Jenna grabbed my arm and we skipped off to ride.  Alex and Mollie followed with the cameras!

Jenna went first.
Jenna is 'out there' and lot's of fun.  I love hanging out with her!
Alex went next:)
Here's me!

Mollie is so sweet, It's like being in a room of sunshine when you're with her!
This is Mollie's first time riding!
and the boys, Sam and Jason;  the only words to describe them is
Hilarious and CRAZY!

So, with the Fourth gone, so goes our friends and I miss them all so much:(
But on the bright side,  we will see Judd, Sue, Molly, Sam and hopefully Alex this Friday!

Two Simple Words

                                      Chubby Bunny!!!

At Conference Franny,Audy,Taite and I borrowed handfuls of marshmallows from the kids campfire. (It was dark, we couldn't resist :)  Then we took our marshmallows into the rec room and played chubby bunny!!!  People were staring as we tried to say it, but instead of "chubby bunny" coming out...

...the marshmallows did :)

We got to spend some time with two special friends who moved to the valley a few years back.  Every time we get together it's a lot of goofiness (As you can see in these pictures!) 

Joelle, Audrey, Cassey, Hillary, Makenna and me

B.F.F 's

Don't worry those aren't real guns!  
Romeo, Romeo...
 It was a hot summers eve after 6 hours in a corsette.   Joelle gracefully fainted onto the fainting chair.  So being the great friend Audrey is she brought out the smelling salts!
Makenna taking pictures of the flowers, me taking pictures of Makenna.
Makenna strangling Audrey with love! 
Joelle thinks she sees a fairy!
Silly Joelle.

Will you be my friend?

Makenna and Audrey taking a peaceful walk in the garden.
Too bad they didn't see the tree branch!
Thank's for being such great friends!
We love you guys!

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tavia's bookmark

My little Cousin Tavia is sick, so I made her a get well card with a bookmark to go with it!  
It slides in like this!

I used Nana's Nursery paper.  I love it because it's so sparkley! 

This paper is one of my favorites! 

I made this flower out of wire.  It didn't turn out like the one in the book I saw, but I think  it's cute!

Get well soon Tavie!!!
