Kid noises

Okay, so I got pretty uptight with the kids tonight and I told them I don't want to here any more kid noises. ie: "mom" repeated 30 times, crying, and fighting.
Isaac has been cuting a tooth and he has been crying for the last couple hours so we needed to go to the store to get the numbing gel for his gums. On our drive we had a really good talk about the kid noises.
It was pure bliss when we got home. I just needed to write about how awesme these kids are. We had dinner and Gabe just started to do the dishes and we were all working on how to talk nice to each other. Bryn asked what kind of kid noises that I do like. I love to here children laugh, the pitter patter of their little feet running, getting along with each other, and I love to here them tell each other stories about what they see in life.
Anyways I'm off to watch a movie.

A Warm Day



So, it was like 66 degrees outside today. We played outside and went the store without a coat. It actually felt a little like spring. I not looking forward to it snowing. I'm okay with the first snowfall but after that it needs to stop. Actually it just needs to snow for Christmas and all will be perfect.
Anyways it was a day to make a photoshoot. I just thought these were so funny. It made my day (I got a good laugh from them). I am looking for the right picture of Isaac for a canvas that I want to use for some of my decorating.
I just need to say I don't do a very well job of writing. My writing doesn't flow (I need to make this a New Year's resolution). I actually did make some resolutions last year and have been successful in accomplishing them except for one - loosing weight.

I so love photography

I just love being able to catch the spirit of each and everyone of my children. I hope that I never here the comment " I'm the youngest thats why I don't have very many pictures".
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal

I can't decide wich one I like the most (color or B&W).

This is Gabe's costume for Halloween this year (it glows in the dark). We had a lot of fun taking these pictures (or maybe I did). I asked Gabe if he was willing and he said "No". Then I asked him if he would do something I like and I will do something he likes (to play the Xbox). He really liked that idea and when it came time for me to play with him dad was home and he wanted to play with him instead. Oh, well another day.

This costume is sooooo cute. Julie made it for Gabe and its now been past done to Isaac.


I just wanted a break so I thought I would post. I have about 8 children running around my house. Gabe is out working on his hut with a few friends and I just caught Bryn and her friend writing on the wall with a marker (which they are now cleaning up). Isaac has gone down for a nap and Elyse just headed over to her friends house. Whoa CRAZY sometimes! I didn't realize that when we signed up for having children that it would come in doubles or triples by adding on the friends that they have.

When its nice weather outside we have quite a bit of chaos at our home. Kids running in and out leaving doors open jumping out of trees running across the street to talk to a friend leaving their mark on the wall and many more. Despite all this work I LOVE IT!

I finally decorated my house two days ago. When we moved here we said we were going to move quickly to get into our home (so I didn't wanat to put a lot of work into decorating). Well, things haven't gone as planned our home in Nephi didn't sell accordingly so 8 months later I decided to make this our home until we move again. When Bryn got up to go to school the next day and told me how nice the house looked (they notice).
I've got to go now my motherly duties are calling for Little Mermaid and FOOD!

About life

"Being a parent means never having a minute...... yet always making a moment."
-Michael Nolan

Elyse LOVES! school. She askes me about it everyday and her favorite part is that mommy goes home .


I thought I would try posting these soccer pictures again since I had such a hard time last night. I love it when the soccer season starts it sparks up so many memories for me. I just love this time of season the smell the excitement of a new school year & Christmas is just around the corner.

I hope that some day I will become a better writer but as for now I express with my photos.

Okay, so I have been trying to upload some pictures but I am having the hardest time. I have had a bad day today I think I just wanted to be upset (the weather didn't help with that either its been raining for awhile now and I want it to stop). I went to the store to get some things that we ran out of and on the way home I needed an oreo shake (that should make me happy-right) and to top it off I ate it after 7:00. It sure was yummy though! I am going to try to upload some pictures of Gabe's soccer game. I've challenged myself to take sport shots since I 'm not coaching and I'm sitting on the sidelines. I think I have a bad lense (I' not really sure how I can convince Greg to get a new one). I'm not getting the pictures that I want. Well, it looks like I can't get it to work I hope I have better luck next time.

Super model in the works

I just have to pop this one in here of Elyse. So cute!

We went to Salt Lake today and had a photo shoot. While we were getting ready we did a little bit of make-up like mascara and eye shadow we forgot the lip gloss. I had a lot of fun with Bryn today!

Minnie me

Super model

Oh, I love this picture. Bryn is seriously the mother hen to these two little ones. She takes care of them so well that I don't even have to worry about them sometimes. She actually waits around to hear Isaac cry when he wakes from his nap and then when he does I find her getting him out of bed and changing his diaper and his clothes. She is such a wonderful big sister.

Oh baby of mine

Isaac is 6 months old now. He is such a fun addition to our family. He just makes everyone smile.


Just for fun I am posting againt (the other posts I did were in the wrong order). I didn't realize that it worked that way. I cannot believe how fast these kids grow up. Gabe is now 7 years old his favorite things are the xbox, building huts, playing soccer, learning, and of course play with his good buddy George.
So, the reason we went to China was for Greg's work. He needed to find a clothing manufactorer for Special Ops. Paintball. We visited many factories and I think there will be one that will work for them. We probably only did one thing that was touristy (if that's a word) and that was shopping. That was fun and CHEAP! Well, I finally got the taste of being out of the country and I definetly enjoyed it but I love America. If we had to I could live there for maybe a year or two but not forever.

Lots of people and a sea of building and homes.

Driving was CRAZY but I still felt safe. There were a couple of times that we would stop on the highway because the driver didn't know for sure where to go. A couple of times we would be on the right side and he would cut across 4 lanes of traffic and make a left hand turn and then cut 4 more lanes of traffic off to make a U turn. CRAZY!

This was my first time being out of the country and it was definately an experience I wont forget. I only have a few pictures to show for the experience because we where in a lot of poor areas and I was always warned not to take out my camera for they don't care what they do to be able to get it. This is a picture that shows some of their transportation that they may have. We saw many different types of things stacked on their bikes.

Okay, so this is my first time posting on our blog that we have had for over a year now. This is a picture that I took in Hong Kong. Greg and I went for a week without kids. Wow! that was quite a challenge to get all that the children taken care off and making sure that they felt comfortable while we were gone. All in all I think they had a good time while we were gone. Thanks everyone for making it possible for us to be able to go.
