Family Pictures

Since I am always the one taking the pictures and we needed some family pictures taken, I asked my dad if he would take some picures of us and I would edit them. Here are some of my favorties. Thanks so much dad!

Brand New House

Most of you know we have been VERY busy with our house... Here are some updated pictures of what we have done!

We got a new TV and the cabinet underneath is new also.

We have very little christmas decorations up, but at least we have some! The black buffet table is new. Oh and... WE GOT NEW CARPET!!!
This is the new room. It is our office/toy room. I painted the fireplace, and I love it black!

Deveren and my dad built in our closets

Ahhh... Isn't it just like heaven?! My hubby and dad did this also! Now I can actually see all the shoes I have! (This is in our bathroom)

This is my FAVORITE part!! Dev just hung these pictures last night. I wanted to do some sort of collage wall and I am so happy with how it turned out!! Yes, they are pictures I took, except the ones that I am in...

I LOVE my house! It feels brand new...

These are some of the fun pictures I took of Billy and Katherine. I love these two!

Fun in Ashton

Deveren got a call a couple weeks ago from an old boss asking him if he wanted some scrap metal. His boss bought a house up in Idaho and the garage was FULL of it. Dev jumped at the chance to get free metal, so we packed up and left last Tuesday. Our good friends Billy and Katherine, who just moved to Boise, happened to be in Ashton the same week, so we played! I got to take pictures of them which was a ton of fun! I have decided that Ashton is THE BEST place to take pictures! Here are some pictures from our week!

This is where Billy's business is on Main Street.

Our cute boys

Katherine and Me being silly

This is when I fell on the snow while taking pictures of Billy and Katherine

Christmas Newsletter

I am so excited Christmas is finally here!! I LOVE everything about this season... The smells, decorations, holiday spirit, family, food.... the list goes on and on. One of my favorite things about Christmas time is the newsletters (with pictures) that I get from family and friends. I love seeing people that I haven't seen in awhile, and people that I saw yesterday! I love reading what has been going on in their lives...
I am not sending one out this year... I know, I know. However, if I did send one out, this is the picture I would send out....

And I would say, 'We WISH You A Merry Christmas'.... (To me it looks like she is wishing really hard). I think it would be the cutest thing!

So there is my Christmas Newsletter Picture... MERRY CHRISTMAS

Let me just say we had a fabulous Thanksgiving! In the morning, Dev went to play football with Carlson's family so Bailie and I went to watch. Bailie hated that she couldn't go on the field with her dad, but we still had fun watching them play. We went up to my Uncle Lowell and Aunt Barb's house that afternoon to have our big feast. We had so much good food. There was a pretty big group of us together for Thanksgiving which was really fun. My Aunt and Uncle from Texas came,some of my cousins, and my grandparents from Idaho also came. We relaxed, ate yummy food, played games, ate some more, and had good conversation with family. It was so much fun! I hope you all had a GREAT Thanksgiving!!!

Big Boy

I babysat my nephew Beckett this morning for a few hours while my sister got her hair done. He is such a good baby to watch. But when he is hungry you have about 5 seconds to get a bottle for him or he starts crying... The boy doesn't mess around when it comes to food. Because of his love of food, he is a big boy! Bailie sat in his caarseat and wanted to hold him so I laid him on top of her. He looks bigger than Bailie in this picture!

First of all, I want to say how amazing my husband is. Not only is he an wonderful father and husband, but he is an unbelievable artist. He made this last night....

After 3 years of seeing him build these amazing sculptures, I am still blown away by his talent. This guitar has got to be one of my favorite sculptures. It is almost 8 feet tall and pretty much the coolest guitar I have ever seen!!! I love it because it is HUGE and you can tell exactly what it is the second you look at it. I love all of cool tools that Deveren uses to create it.

Isn't he such a stud? Dev, I think you are unbelievable! I love you baby.

I have the greatest parents in the ENTIRE world! I don't know how I got so lucky, but I did. I look up to them in so many ways. They are the best people I know. Mom and Dad, I love you both so much! Thank you for ALL you do for me and my family.

Last weekend we were at my parents' house just hangin out. My mom was wrapping christmas presents and she had a box of packaging peanuts next to her... My mom got my attention without Bailie noticing and told me to get my camera and watch her.... This is what I saw.
She is the smartest little girl!!!

I loved these pictures of her and wanted to post them.

Family Photo Shoot

I had the privilege of photographing this adorable family in my ward. They asked me to take their family pictures about a month ago and we had to keep postponing it because things kept coming up, but we finally arranged a time and got together! It was lots of fun chasing the girls around while they played in the leaves, fed ducks, and took turns swinging on the swings!
Aren't they an adorable family?
