Cheer leading Proofs

OK Girls I finally have all the pictures done! I will send a order form to school with Sadie or you can email me your order.

The pictures will be $6 per sheet or I’ll burn you a CD of all the pictures (not just yours, but everyone’s) for $50 and you can print them wherever and whenever you want. On the CD I’m also including a second set of all the pictures that have been sized smaller so you can email them or use them online (just don’t try and print those or they will look awful).

A sheet of photos =

1 8×10 or

2 5×7’s or

4 4×5’s or

1 5×7 and 2 3.5×5’s or

9 wallets

Make sure when ordering you include the photo number so I print them correctly.

Busy Weekend

I have had a very busy weekend. Lots of picture taking and celebrating going on. I kind of feel like I need another weekend to recover from this one.

Today I got to go take pictures of my cute niece and nephews. My sister-in-law is going to hang these up in black and white, but I really like how the color ones turned out so I’m posting them both ways.

Sorry about the crazy sizing, it was the only way I could get them to show up.

Sneak Peak

Today we froze our butts off in 3o degree weather while we took cheer leading pictures for the yearbook. Hopefully we got some good shots through all the shivering.

After these fun shots we got to do something a little warmer. Sadie and a friend went with me Mykin and Ben’s to take Christmas pictures of their cute family. It’s really easy to take pictures when the kids are this cute.

Here is a quick preview of photos I took tonight. The kids were so easy to photograph because they are so darn cute!

Morgan and Maddie

I am way WAY behind on editing and posting photos for people. A few months ago I had the chance to take pictures of Sadie’s best friend and her sister. The girls were so much fun to take photos of and very patient waiting to see them. Here are a few of them to hold them over until I get the rest of them edited.

Baby Pictures

We took a trip to Seattle last week (more on that later, tons of fun) for the birth of my sisters baby. I was not only excited about the new edition to our family, but super excited to have a chance to take pictures of my new nephew. I new my sister would let me experiment with all kinds of fun photo ideas. Here is how they turned out, what do you think?

Post Graduation Pictures

On Thursday I went and took pictures of a fun group of girls all getting ready to leave for college. This was their last few days together as a group and they wanted to get pictures together.

I am still editing them, but here is a sneak peak. Oh and by the way, if you get caught taking pictures down at the graffiti train its a $12,000 fine. We’ve been warned.

Back in the Running for Mother of the Year

So life has got considerably more crazy the closer it came to the end of the school year. I totally redeemed myself from being the mom with the potty mouth to being the rockstar mom my kids all wish they had. I not only made it to all required events, but managed to pull off a BBQ and water party for THE WHOLE 8th GRADE (and still made it to graduation on time).

I will admit that I have a huge tendency to bite off way more than I can chew, but I am just delusional enough to think that I can do it all. This time I out did myself with the craziness. In all fairness most of the commitments were not my doing. The school forgets that most of us have more than one child so therefore you can’t fill the last two weeks of school with a dozen different events.

Now that the craziness is over I managed to get Sadie and her cousins off to EFY and Ash off to a conference in Seattle. I’m sitting around wondering where all these extra hours were when I really needed them.

Here is photographic proof of the awesomeness of Sadie’s party. This is her and her friends playing water balloon dodge ball.

Here is Cole ready to rumble with the big boys (and loose miserably).

On a very funny side note one kid was told by his mother that he couldn’t come to the party because she thought it was going to be a s*x party (I don’t want creepy new followers). Obviously she has never met me, but seriously what would make you jump to that conclusion? What part of a BBQ in the park sounds like a s*x party to you?

No worries his dad let him come.

Fabulous Mother’s Day Re-cap

smimg_0292

I love being a wife and mother more than anything else in this world. It’s all I have ever really wanted to be. I love every single dirty minute of it.

That being said Mother’s Day is a hard day for me. I love that there is a day set aside to stop and recognize all that we do as mothers but at the same time the attention is a little embarrassing for me. So instead of talking about Mother’s Day I want to talk about what makes me the luckiest mom in the world, my family.

First things first, my hubby. This man is the most amazing man I have ever met. He isn’t just a great husband he is an amazing husband. I often wonder how I got so lucky. He knows me well enough to pick out awesome clothes for me for Mother’s Day and get all the sizes perfect. No returning necessary, that is a real talent especially with my ever growingshrinkinggrowing waist line.

Then there are my kids. I really don’t know how I got lucky enough to have three really great well behaved children. I keep waiting for one of them to start rebelling (since I have 1 and 1/2 teenagers) and give me a run for my money but so far so good. They are helpful, kind, GREAT kids.

I am honored to be a wife and mother to this great bunch!

One more reason I will never be mother of the year

smimg_0913

My son and I were goofing around the other day and calling each other silly names. I called him turkey butt which is a pretty common thing around here.

He promptly told me that at his friends house I would get my mouth washed out with soap because that’s a bad word.

So there you go one more reason I will never be mother of the year, I have a potty mouth.

My Heart

Everyone who knows me well knows that my dear sweet hubby and my wonderful children have my heart, and always will. It’s moments like this that I completely melt. How did I get so lucky?

Ash thinks this photo makes him look chubby so next time you see him make sure and tell him how slim he looks. He’ll love it.

Genetically Impossible

So I have a theory, a theory I have been contemplating for a while. I tend to need an explanation for why everything is the way it is. In my OCD need for understanding I tend to come up with a lot of theories (most of them probably complete crap, I admit it).

My newest theory is that it is genetically impossible for little boys to aim properly. I truly am coming to the belief that its part of their DNA to completely loose all sense of direction while urinating. What other explanation can there be for the places that I find urine in the bathroom?

Last night while explaining my theory to my wonderful husband he knobbly tried to defend his two young sons by explaining to me that “it’s not as easy as it looks.” Really? That’s your story and your sticking to it, really?

So lets give them the benefit of the doubt that it really is more difficult than it looks that doesn’t explain me finding urine on the door opposite the toilet. I mean seriously HOW DO THEY MANAGE THAT ONE?

So tell me what interesting theories about life do you have, I would love to hear them (it helps me feel a little less crazy).

Lent

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday. We know that because my husbands name is Ash and everyone wishes him a happy Ash Wednesday. They think its hilarious.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. Last year I decided to give something up for Lent, I was so successful I have decided to give it another try.

I have thought long and hard about what to give up this year. I decided I would like to give up the extra 10lbs I am caring around, but something tells me that’s not how this works. So plan B) give up something that is causing the extra 10lbs. Last year it was soda, particularly caffeinated soda. It worked out wonderfully and I can now honestly say I don’t need soda in my life.

Unfortunately the only other thing I can think to give up is sugar, and I am really not excited about that prospect. Sugar isn’t a huge problem for me, but I can’t think of anything else and I do really enjoy something sweet now and then.

So I guess sugar it is, wish me luck.

Photowalking Utah

Today’s Photowalking Utah event was so much fun. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. I took tons more, but it will take me some time to touch them up and post them.

I learned so much my head is swimming. I brought my friend Jen with my, and I’m not sure she knew what she was getting herself into. She described it as “taking a drink from a fire hose.” I would have to agree, but it was so worth it.

Thanks Richard for all your hard work putting it together!
