The Sweetest Little Jillybean Around!

My lovely sis in law and her wonderful husband welcomed a beautiful new baby girl into this world about 2 months ago :) I LOVE new babies....especially when that baby is my niece! Isn't she just so pretty? And so snuggly! I LOVE her!






Look at those CHEEKS! So precious!

Congrats Paul and Sandy on a beautiful little angel!
Love you!

What to do, what to do....

I have long been trying to decide whether or not I really want to start a photography business....I love taking photos, I enjoy editing photos (to a certain extent), but do I really want to deal with advertising, taxes, business stuff in general??? So far the answer is NO, not really. I will continue to take photos for family and friends, but being a mother of 3, a wife, and a nurse I just don't have the time to really start a business. It is not never, just not right now. Having said are some recent photos I have done for family and friends...

An engagement session for a lovely couple who are so funny with each other and will be a great couple :)

Still here :)

Well, we survived Christmas and all the chaos! The busy, hectic, running around seemed more this year than in the past. I really love the Christmas season, but wish I could just hang back and spend time with those most important. That seems nearly impossible, because they were all busy and running too! When did things get so crazy!?! I meant to send out Christmas cards, but never got around to it. I even had them all printed up, but never sent them, here is what you would have received if I had been more on top of everything! Our beautiful pictures were taken by the very talented Julie Freeman!

I hope everyone I didn't have a chance to connect with had a fantastic Christmas! We all made out well. The big thing this year was a Wii from Dave's brother Ben and his wife Heather! Thank you guys! We have already played on it a bunch and love the family time it has seemed to bring :) The kids all got new bikes, amongst many many more gifts (they were entirely too spoiled!!!). I was thankful for the time we did get to spend with all our family...although I still wish it had been more! We are very thankful for the blessings we have received and feel so blessed for having the gospel in our lives! I am so thankful for our Savior!

So on the the New Year we go! Hopefully Dave will get more work, and my kids will continue to amaze me!

Time is flying!

Wow! I can't believe it is October already! The kids have been back in school for over a month now. Hannah is in 3rd grade at Siena and loves it! She has a few friends from churh in her class and I think she is really enjoying her teacher. I never had many worries that she would be excited for school, she has always been a school lover! On the other hand, Isaac had me worried...for about 2 days! It turns out he loves being at school everyday. He is in Kindergarten, also at Siena. He has come home with nothing but green stamps in his daily folder (green: good, yellow: needs adjustments, red: bad). He loves his teacher as well, and it sounds like he has made some good friends. It warms my heart to know that they are enjoying school and doing well! Josie and I now have alone time to spend everyday, although I must be honest and admit that I have had a rough time these last few months finding energy to function fully everyday. I think that night shift working is really taking it's has been 8 years that I have been working 12 hr nights at St Lukes! I feel I am ready for some change, but not sure I can handle day shift! (not to mention the loss of money that going to days would cause!) I guess it doesn't matter right now, as there are no day shifts available!!!

Anyway...these are long overdue, but here are some first day of school shots.
First up: Hannah! 3rd grade baby!

Here's my little man on his first day of kindergarten! My baby is growing up!

And last, but certainly not least...Josie! She didn't have a first day of school this year, but that is okay by me! Check her out, tearing up the sidewalk on her tricycle!

oh how I love her...

It really seems like 2 days ago she was born and yesterday she was starting school, but here we are at her basptism. I am so proud of her for making the decision to be baptised. August 1st was a beautiful and emotional day. What a testimony builder to have your children baptised. I was reminded how very blessed I am to have a worthy Priesthood holder for a husband, and how important the Priesthood is. I truly love the gospel and know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who knows us and wants us to return to him. I love the organization of the church, and know that because of it I am a better person and would flounder without it. I love my ward family and their support and love that I feel every week! What a blessing to our family! I love my children and husband so much and am so grateful for the Plan of Salvation and the opportunity to be a forever family! Thank you, Hannah, for being such a beautiful and wonderful daughter! I know that if you use the gift of the Holy Ghost that you received on Saturday, that you will remain strong and happy. I love you sweetie!

Here is the baptism announcement I made. I wasn't sure I was going to make them, but decided after some thought that it would be a good way to help her remember this special time. I think our family appreciated them as well...

Here is my wonderful little family on her big day.

My Cutie Nephew E

My sister-in-law asked me a while ago to take some pictures of her adorable little guy and we finally got around to it!

Love me some vintage!

Love you guys! I will have the rest edited shortly!
