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!

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.
