Photo Session

We just got back from a nearly two week vacation in Idaho with all of my family. It was the first time in years that we were all together, all six of us siblings plus our parents. With Josh just getting home from his mission and Austin just about to leave, the timing of this trip was perfect. It wasn't initially planned that way, but that's how it worked out and we are very grateful.

I loved having a countless number of people in line waiting to help me change diapers, hold a crying baby, or watch Elmo with Danny. They all WANTED to do it. It was so awesome. Needless to say, I got majorly spoiled and I had a serious wake-up call when we got home and it was back to reality. But the kids have been really good and Kate is starting to be less grumpy. She has had her first grins, some of which have become near giggles. Her coo's are so cute and when it happens it makes me forget that she cries a lot.

While we were in Idaho, we had a photo session with a wonderful photographer, Kimberly Smith. She took some amazing pictures of my best friends new adorable little son, Landon, and I wanted some too! We wanted to take cute naked newborn pictures of Kate, but she was just too big to take cute sleeping pictures. She was too big for all the props and cute newborn poses and kept waking up and was very disgruntled the entire time. And she had TWO major accidents and she shot poop all over us and all over the canvas backdrop, which required some extensive cleanup. It was so funny! But take a look at this album I compiled of some of our favorites from the session.

Seriously cute pictures! What a beautiful family you have. So fun to see!

By the way, I use Adobe Photoshop 3.0 to make the collages. Not hard to do, but hard to figure out on your own. Adobe Photoshop is not user friendly (at least for me!). But take a little class or get someone to teach you a few simple steps and you can do soooo much! I love it.

By the way, I never thanked you for those wonderful compliments you gave me about my blog. I have thought about that comment a lot and it has really made me smile. So thank you!

I definitely love your blog too!

Rebecka, it is so good to hear from you. I would love to keep in contact with you through blogs. I have to say, your kids are so so cute! I bet that was so nice to be back with your family. My parents and Teasha just came this last week and it was so nice to see them. It's hard being so far away from family. Take care of those cute kids.

THat is so great that you got to be in Idaho with all of your family. I am sorry I missed seeing you as well as missed your brother's talks in sacrament meeting. I saw Josh at Brianna's wedding, and he has really grown up! I am sure Austin will be a great missionary! By the way, I love all those pics!
