Devin and Sadie

I am just testing to see if this video worked...I've been trying to find a program that will let me edit videos from my phone and I think I found a site that lets me do basic editing (for free).

I think the quality is blah...but at least now I can edit out random stuff.

Also, Sadie is so cute!

Recent Sessions

I've had a few photo sessions this month! I never post to my photo blog anymore so I thought maybe I'd share some sessions on here?
This baptism session is probably one of my favorites ever! She was so cute and fun!

 Family pictures make me nervous, so I don't do them very often.

Class of 2026

 Sam made these shirts for the cousins graduating in 2026 (which sounds like an eternity away--and also makes me sad even thinking about her leaving me)! I hope I remember to take a picture of her in it at the beginning of every school year (even if I forget until November!)

 Last year for comparison

And just like that it is half ways through November. A pretty exciting month! Two new cousins (one of them arrived yesterday!), a birthday, Thanksgiving in Arizona, the end of football and soccer, nice weather plus many other activities.
Here is a bit of our November so far...
This is up in our living room. Every day I try to have the kids jot down something they are thankful for.
A little treat we made before church.
We did our annual "what are we thankful for" Family Home Evening. I wasn't in the mood to cut out hundreds of leaves, so we made a paper chain. We really have a lot to be thankful for!

We made Reeces turkeys

The girls and I played with watercolors and made this...

The kids have had so many days off school. One of those days we went to Tulle Springs for a picnic. They had fun exploring.

I already posted about Halloween so here is the rest of our visit. Oh man, I love Utah in the fall! Like I almost want to pack up all our stuff and move there now! I mean, come on.....

Anyways, Day #1 we went to Gardner Village (a cute little shopping center). They decorate it for Halloween with lots and lots of witches.

After that we went to Scheels. Devin wanted to find some Seahawks stuff and we rode the carousel.

Saturday we went to Silver Lake. I was really hoping there would be a little color left up the canyon, but it was all gone. Oh well. Even though it was cold, I enjoyed the walk.

My kids just love the little ones 

To get the kids out of the house we went on a nature walk. It was really fun for the girls and I (because in Nevada we don't have quite the variety!)

Our last day!
Devin and Parker bonding over Minecraft.

Poor Adalynn feel when she was trick or treating (in case you were wondering about her eye).
On our way home, we stopped in Provo to get a few things at the Creamery and drive around campus. I feel pretty darn lucky we lived here for 5 years.  It is just gorgeous!
