November FUN!

Warm Novembers are great!  Walks, bike rides, strolls, lots of outdoor fun!

Love these kiddos and their Daddy!!!

She is in love with these shoes...

These faces!
He is a ham and a half!

I love this boy's hair!  He won't let me cut it, or style it... he wants it be "Moosie hair"... and I oblige, because he is stinkin' cute!

Levi is 3.75 years old and has been riding with no training wheels for about 6 months!! I credit it all to his balance bike!  Best idea ever!

I realize the next two are out of focus and super bright... but its ok with me, because look at the joy on their faces!!!

Look Mom, no hands;)

This was Thanksgiving at Granny and Pops!!  Loved the leaves

He was pretending... promise.

This boy... gosh... he melts my heart.
I told him there was a bunny in my camera (original, I know)... the frame before this he is squinting, looking hard... then I told him it would be invisible unless he smiled- it worked!! For me anyway!
Speaking of melting my heart... look at this studly man!  NO WONDER I have the most adorable children... what a HUNK:)

Here's to finding Joy in the many blessings the Holidays bring and in knowing that we all received the greatest blessing and gift of Grace and redemption through Jesus.  As we move quickly in to December, remember the true reason we celebrate.

Our Super Crew!

Happy Halloween, a day late!

We had an impromptu photo shoot on our way to Aunt Becky's for the annual Halloween festivities!  These three are really as awesome as they come.  
And their Daddy... the biggest Super Hero of all.

We are SOOO blessed. 

And because I couldn't resist this one in black and white... a special treat for y'all;)

This girl...

has captured my heart!

She still only says "Dada."

She blazes her trail with screeches of joy, giggles, and sometimes screams of anger!!

She is sooooo loved :)

Ooh, and these curls... I hope they last!  I can't get enough of this wild hair!

New Camera Love

Have you ever seen boys so handsome?  Me either!  I got a new camera this week... I am super happy with it.  These images are SOOC (staraight out of the camera), no editing done to them!  Beautiful:)  These boys make mama sooooo happy.

Here's to more posts:)  Maybe I'll get back on to once a week or more.

I only have Eisz for you!

Be warned... this is a VERY, VERY picture heavy post... but I just could NOT narrow it down!!

My gorgeous cousin got married this July and I was fortunate enough to have the honor of capturing the day for her!  I couldn't have done it without my mom, though!! She shot right alongside me and we tag teamed on the 'can't do at the same time' shots... like the pre-ceremony, top of the ski lift shots:)  It was a gorgeous wedding, full of fun, loving, and fun loving people.  Audra, I love you and I hope that these pictures make you smile for years and years to come.

She was the most beautiful bride.  So many times I had to choke back the tears, and I'm not a crier!! There was just so much joy from everyone.

Had to get some of my Aunt and Uncle reveling in the day.
And, of course, had to have a little fun!! Thank you Pinterest for the idea!
There were soooo many gorgeous details...
Her Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue
Old: Her Mom's veil, New: Her dress, Borrowed: A hair piece borrowed from a bridesmaid who wasn't able to make it (she was having a baby!!), Blue: Her wedding date and her Mom's wedding date embroidered into the veil and dress... All so amazingly detailed and beautiful.

This was a wedding party FULL of personality!!
The most unique and gorgeous ceremony site known to man!  Here is another example of how I could not have done this without my mama... I was one chair ahead on the lift and could not have captured John's face seeing Audra!

Thanks for making it all the way to the end... these are just a few of my favorites!!  There were 881 total... they are all posted on another site for family and friends to order.  If you'd like that address, let me know.

My sweet loves.  I can't even look at these without tearing up.  The awesome wonder of God and his Greatness coupled with the sweetness of my babies (minus one) is enough to melt this Mama.  I don't even really have any other words...

The Lovely Miss E!

This is a sweet baby who's name starts with E.  I clearly remember the day she was born.  Her mama called me to tell me that it was "the day," but that it would be "later."  She was so composed.  So calm and 'with it'.  She was everything I would have wanted to be while in labor, had I not been induced all three times.  She was also right.  It was the day!!!  Later that evening, E's proud daddy sent us a cell phone pic of the most beautiful, bald baby girl!  

There is no doubt in my mind that this lovely little lady will grow up to be a lover of Jesus, kind, giving, and beautiful.  I can only pray that I do a good enough job on at least on of my boys so that she ends up as my daughter-in-law!!

So, here we are, nearly a year later... ready to celebrate a birthday!  Enjoy the sweetness!!!

And here, for those of you who care, is a pull back shot of my set up.... in the driveway!!
