photo shoot

>> Monday, February 25, 2008

OK so this week I decided to get brave, and take on all three boys and do a photo shoot. Doing them myself was so much more rewarding then taking them to a professional. By doing it myself I got so many good pictures, and they where a lot more cooperative. I got a lot of pictures, but I thought I would just share one of my favorites of each boy!

Valentines Day

>> Saturday, February 16, 2008

HaPpY vAlEnTiNeS DaY!
This year we did Valentines Day as a family. Tyler's dad was out of town for buisness, and so we took Deanna and Chance with us to Ogden. We ate at the Pizza Factory (YuM...YuM!) We used to eat there when we would go down to Cedar City to watch Chance play soccer at the Summer Games. So it was nice to have one in Ogden. After a stressful week at work because of inventory Tyler had to work eight days before his next day off. We wanted to just go have some fun! So we then hit the FLOWRIDER Chance surfed the whole time, and kept getting better, and better. Ty on the other hand hit the knee boarding first, and got really good at that. He then up-graded to the surfing side, but after a few wipeouts went back to the knee boarding. We then went to check out I-FLY which is a sky dive simulator we just watched them do it, and it was pretty cool. They also have an arcade in which we hit next, and the boys played some games, and then we called it a night. Here are some picutres and video clips of our WoNdErFuL night!

Blankets and Pillows

Having FUN in the Blankets!


Family Home Evening

The whole family went bowing. Thanks to Kristi and Jay for inviting us. We had so much fun!


Let it Snow... Let it Snow... Let it Snow

On Febuary 4th these picutres were taken, and it is now Saturday. Yesterday was the first day that these picutres did not repeat themselves. I cannot remember living here in Brigham city, and getting this much snow. These were all taken Monday, and it kept up until Thursday so we have a lot of snow!
Morning when we woke up

Evening before we went to bed

This was just beatiful!

The pictures really doesn't capture the beauty of it, but if you look closely there are big snow flakes coming down

The deck in the backyard

This one was higher up, but all the other ones were buried in the snow

For every question, type the song that's playing. 5. When you go to a new question, press the next button. 6. Be honest. This is fun stuff!
