Moments

I forgot to write some of my favorite moments at Disneyland, and then I’ll quit talking about the darn trip. –Listening to Max and Elle assure Grace over and over and over again that Space Mountain is NOT scary and that she was going to LOVE it. She didn’t, but she was brave enough to…

Disneyland

Finally, we made our pilgrimage to Disneyland. This was a long time in the making. We’re not one of those Disneyland families who have the annual passes and go all the time. The last time we went was five years ago and we took Max & Elle and left our then baby Grace at home…

photoshoots

I got to come home from Utah after Christmas and photograph these newborn twins. Now if that’s not a lucky thing to help get back into the grind of every day life then I don’t know what is. These girls live right down the street so I get to go snuggle them up whenever I…

freezing time

The other day I finally got myself (and my two at-home-during-the-day kids) to the mall for some post-Christmas returns and exchanges. It wasn’t fun. The girls were doing all kinds of acrobatics on the stroller and poor Claire had hurt her knee on the trampoline the day before and kept whining that she couldn’t walk….

holiday highlights

We jam-packed our time after Christmas. These are some of the highlights: We were able to spend time with a bunch of Dave’s family, including cousins from Utah before we left to go there ourselves. I think everyone’s favorite was ice skating. My Mother & Father-in-law put on a big ice skating party for everyone…

This is such a busy time of year for photography, but since I’ve shifted around pricing and availability this year it has gone smoother than the last few years (my husband may disagree with me here, but…

overwhelmed

I can’t sleep. I’ve been lying there in the dark listening to the sound of the fan, mulling over why in the world I can’t keep up with life. Why does everyone else seem to be handling it fine while I’m barely keeping my head above water? I realize the fact that we’ve had a…

Boston (part two)

We’re home safe and sound trying to hit the ground running to catch up again, and trying to scrounge up some Halloween costumes for parties that are now bombarding our calendar. I’m just going to write the segments of our trip when I get snippets of time here and there. Oh my word did we…

Boston (part one)

I love Boston. I love the trees, I love the narrow, winding streets, I love the accent, I love the crisp air, I really love the fall colors, and most of all I love being with my amazing sisters and spending quality time with two of my daughters. Man it’s gorgeous out here. Today we…
