Twelve balloons. That is how many pink balloons we sent to our sweet Taylor in heaven this year. It's not fair that I only have 3 kids and not 4. Someday.

Cookie Exchange

In December I got conned into throwing a cookie exchange. I am not really a cookie baker per se but I do love a good party!

We had an awesome 2011 with lots and lots of blessings. We are loving El Paso(especially in the winter) and have made lots of great friends.

Adam is working for Boston Scientific as an Account Manager for the Endoscopy division. He LOVES his job and has had lots of success in this area. This is his second year teaching early morning seminary and he really loves working with the high school kids. After years of begging him to run with me he has finally decided that he wants to run a marathon and has started training.

I have been busy with the kids and my photography business. I have been very blessed this year with my photography and have busy taking pictures of amazing high school seniors. I have also teamed up with some friends and started putting on workshops. We are doing four this year Las Vegas, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina. Between the family and photography I keep pretty busy.

Gage is 9 years old and in the 4th grade. This year Gage had his first year of tackle football. He loved it, but it was a little intense for me. He also plays the guitar, scouts and is on the student council. He loves to read and I never thought I would have to get mad at my kids because they wouldn't stop reading. He is the most social kid and is makes friends everywhere he goes.

Talon is 7 years old and in the 1st grade. Talon loves to play on the Xbox and would play on it all day long if I let him. Talon is our sports fanatic and thinks and talks about football and/or baseball all the time. Talon does flag football, baseball and swim lessons. He is super competitive child and is always challenging Gage.

Presley is 3 years old and started preschool this year. She is our little princess and is so much fun. She is sweet and spunky at the same time. Presley started dance this year. She loves to sing and walks around the house singing and dancing. She got a pink tricycle for her birthday this year and rides it in the house all day long.

I am so grateful for all of our many blessings. Sometimes I wonder why God chose me to give so many great and wonderful things to.

I can't believe my baby is 3 years old. I hate that she is growing up. We had a little get together with some her friends. Love this little girl so much!

Funny Girl

Oh I love her! I can't believe my baby will be 3 in a couple weeks. I love the stages all my kids are at right now. They are so much fun! So sad I will never have a baby or a one year old or a two year old again. Love them all so much!

Fourth of July in Delta

It is nice to live a little closer to Utah. This year we headed up to Delta for the fourth of July. I LOVE going to Delta for the fourth. It is kind of like a high school reunion. Love it!

We made another little day trip out to Whites Sands, NM with the Johnstuns.

The old men trying to show the little boys what is up.

The end of June we went to Moab for a Schroeder family reunion. The kids have so much fun with all the cousins. This day the boys were river rafting and Presley and I were just hanging out at the lodge.

Ahhh Pres

Why won't my daughter look at the camera? ***SIGH***

This little girl is the sweetest thing. She sings and sings and sings all day long. She sings in the stores (usually at the top of her lungs), she sings in her crib after we put her to bed, she sings during prayers, and she sings in church (at the wrong times). We just love her little voice and it makes all of us smile.

Pine Wood Derby/Science Project

We had a busy month in January. Adam....I mean Gage had the Pine Wood Derby and I......I mean Gage had the science fair. Not going to lie, I.....I mean Gage totally stressed over the science fair and Adam....I mean Gage spent every spare second working on his derby car.

Are you dying to hear if our....I mean Gage's hard work paid off? Lets put it this way I....I mean Gage took FIRST in the science fair and well Adam....I mean Gage didn't take first in the Pine Wood Derby. Don't feel bad he didn't take last either (but close). It is okay Adam....I mean Gage I am sure your derby car will be way better next year!
