working on the wink...almost there!
I look at you every single day and ask, "What the heck are you doing, growing up so fast???" Do you not know that I have specifically asked you on several occasions to stay my tiny sweet baby forever? Do you know how much I absolutely treasure the times that you actually let me cuddle with you for more than 2 seconds until you scurry off to play with your sisters or catch bees in Ziploc bags, (Thanks to our little neighbor boy Josh for giving you that idea- but he's totally cute, so that's okay. Just please don't get stung!). I hope that I will always remember how small your voice sounds when I ask you to get down from off of the microwave and you ask, "why?". And although I know that this is going to absolutely drive me crazy when you grow up and I ask you to do something and you grin your sly little grin, spin on your heel, and run away giggling, I find it darling now.
You are just that. Darling!
I'm so excited for what the rest of your life will bring. But for now, please don't stop walking around all day on your tippy-toes, obsessing about your favorite boots, and saying "Ka-ga" when you want to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

What a beautiful senior...am I right or what??????? Really...this girl and her sisters all have their mom's gorgeous eyes and they are just stunning! And wowee, this girl can pull the serious look like no other. That has got to be hard to do..especially with a goof of a photographer and her sister and mom making her laugh- so much fun! Love it!

If my kids had faces like these they would be spoiled rotten...I would not be able to say no to them EVER! They'd be like the 800 pound 3 year olds on Maury Povich who's parents are like "but they cry when I tell them that they can't eat 8 cheeseburgers". Thank goodness Andrea is a much stronger person than I.
My goodness they are gorgeous!
And are you kidding me Anthony??? I am dead serious when I say that you should totally do Lenscrafters commercials...And everyone can say that they knew you when...you were firing up my blog with your "blue steel". Honestly, I have never seen Zoolander, but I know what the reference is all about, I think. And Oh little Zaidude, You better watch out for all the single ladies in nursery! Don't believe that they're sharing their treats with you because they're nice, mark my words brother!
It was such a fun afternoon with you all!!! I wish that I could have hung out in Brigham City with you all weekend!
Love you guys!!!

Here they are... Mr. and Mrs. Dyches!!! Such a lovely couple with such a great love story to go along with them! And of coarse getting to spend the day at my absolute FAVE temple (am I allowed to say that?? I love all of them, but you know...) of all time- The Manti Temple, was the greatest! Even greater still was having My Love hanging out on the Temple grounds with Bette and Ava so we could be there together there. Aaahhh, how sweet. And speaking of sweet...a Cold Stone catered reception and the most scrumptious sugar cookies ever, I regret not having taken an home with me in my camera bag, they were sooooo good! Yes, I had 2. And I loved seeing the look on the faces of the little ones as they walked up to the huge pile of waffle cones just ready to fill high with Ice cream and toppings, what a fabulous idea! I'm definitely storing these wedding ideas in my brain for if my daughters decide to get married :).
And speaking of sweet, (again), watching these two together was just beautiful!
Laura and Garrett, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Married life is the BEST!!!

There are 2 things that, if I am having a bad day, will always make me smile...one is the photo on my little brother's driver's license and the other is something that Phillip here said in primary when we first moved into the ward. I would put it here on the blog...but it was kind of a "you had to be there" moment and whatever I could write would not do it justice. But believe me, it was FUNNY! He is such a great kid who comes from an absolutely wonderful and beautiful-in-every-way family! They are so dear to our hearts and we will always be grateful that we moved to this ward so we could have the blessing of knowing them! And check out the gorgeousness just oozing from these ladies...whoo hoo! Thank you for such a great evening, you are an absolutely inspiring family!
