We love all our friends and family that came out to support Zo.  Thank you!

Zo’s 8th birthday and baptism (another catch up)

Yes!  I realize it is almost Zo’s 9th birthday, and so with horror, I remembered that I had never written about her birthday last year.  How could I miss her baptism year?!  Oh yeah, it’s because we were moving, and life was a bit crazy.  I know, no excuse! We had such a great time!  …

When I stepped onto this path I saw rabbits, squirrels, and birds all flee to the foreign sound of human footsteps.

Utah: Week 12

Almost 3 months in the state of UT.  Crazy!  The weather is starting to cool off, and the leaves look like flames on the trees.  Thank heavens, after a summer filled with wildfires, these flames are just a result of the changing seasons.  I am so excited for Fall!  It’s my favorite time of year.  …

Utah: week 7

This morning I took Stephen to the airport to work in CA for the week.  So, this week you get me.  I’ll do my best, but I love getting his take on things, and I will miss that this time. It’s taken me way too long for this past weeks post.  I need to get …

Cowboy Dad

I was telling some little friends of mine that my dad was a cowboy and they were so excited.  It was funny.  I guess there aren’t as many as there once were.  I’ve been thinking a lot about Dad lately.  I actually had to get up and leave church Sunday because I couldn’t get control …

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

The other day, my son asked me if I was sad the day I realized he was taller than me. I had to answer no. I was excited. He thought that was weird, cuz most moms hate that their kids grow up so fast. I told him that I love watching my kids grow up. …

Family Basket

When Stephen and I were first married I had an idea that, instead of individual Easter baskets, I wanted to do a family basket.  When Kas came the next year I continued that, hoping it would turn into a tradition.   Somewhere along the way I forgot.  So, when the girls joined our family the idea …

My calling in life

Ever since the first time I picked up a camera, I’ve been in love.  I don’t mean a little point and shoot.  I mean a really 35mm slr.  In particularly, my dad’s little old Yashika.  I don’t think they are even made anymore.  That little camera taught me to see things in a completely different …
