Shutter Love: Trees

There is Beauty All Around
If you live in Utah, you know one of the best places to be at Christmas time is Temple Square.  But did you also know it is amazing in the Spring, too?
It is one of my favorite places on Earth.
And their tulips are in full bloom on Mother's Day.
So we plan our Mother's Day around Temple Square.
Sadly, it was raining this year.
But it was absolutely stunning last year!
The flowers were beautiful, but my absolute favorite were the gorgeous blooms on the trees.
How could I resist entering this picture into Shutter Love?

Here's a couple more fun shots from our little outing.

I can't believe how much they have all grown this year!
Still the cutest things, EVER!

Tea for 2: Family Fun

Okay, last post on Cassy's party.  But I had to share a great idea my hubby had.
He had me compile all of Cassy's pictures and make them into a slide show.
Then he hooked the laptop up to the T.V. screen so that everyone could watch while they mingled.
I didn't add any music because I knew it would already be noisy with 31 people, so we didn't need more commotion.

Anyway, after I edited and deleted the not so good pictures, I was able to cut it back to 575!
I won't share them all with you, but I want to share a few of my favorites.

 This little girl really pushed me to the limit.
After 3 other babies, I faced one of my biggest fears and got an epidural.
Just after they finished the epidural, the doctor discovered she had down a flip since my appointment the day before and was now breech.  They had already broken my water, so an inversion didn't work (thought I was grateful  I had listened to the Spirit and gotten that epidural.)
They told me I was going to have to face my second and greatest fear.  A c-section.
I was scared out of my mind, but the doctors and my hubby were great.
They got me through it just fine, and it was so worth it when I held Miss Cassidy for the first time.

I know this one is fuzzy, but I couldn't resist sharing her first Easter.

I love this tender little moment.
Charly is such the little mommy!
I took all the girls' pictures in this hat
and made a scrapbook page for Daddy that said
Happy Father's Day
from you little "Deeres"

Best Buddies
 First Birthday

One of Cassy's favorite people, Grandpa Great
Mother's Day 2010
We started a new tradition of going to Temple Square to see all of the amazing flowers.  What a great photo op!
Thrill Seeker!
Fun at the park
Cassy's other favorite person, Grandpa P.
First Steps

Bein' Silly

Halloween 2010
Cassy loved sledding so much that she refused to get out of the sled and ended up falling asleep in it!

Oh how I love this little girl!
I am so blessed to have her in my life
And look forward to many more years!

Shutter Love: Hands

I knew exactly which picture I wanted to use when I saw the theme for this week's Shutter Love.
This is Charly when she was one.
Oh how I miss those chubby little hands!
I love the old baseball with her 4th of July shirt.
I am naming this photo "All American"

Tea for 2...Invites

Has the anticipation been killing you?
Been waiting with baited breath?
Well wait no longer!
Come on
Have a seat here next to me!
(Just watch out for the tea cup)
And I'll give you a little peek at my party invites
Didn't Daddy do a great job?
Yep.  This time, Daddy did it!
Mommy and Daddy make a great team.
Daddy took the pictures.
And Mommy did the editing.

It helps that I am an unbelievably cute model!
And I can really get down and groovy
But when I am done...
I am done!
As is this post.
See you soon!

I Heart Faces: Silhouettes

Another fun Photography contest.
This one's theme is silhouettes this week.  I took this picture at the end of the summer.

It started out looking like this:

I cropped it in Picnik, then added a focal soften.  And just like that you have a fun, Goodbye Summer silhouette!

Just wanted to take a minute and wish you all...

and to share what we did today.

We went to my hubby's grandparent's house and picked pumpkins.

                                      I love the green ones!  
                        Kota's has serious character! 
 This is the inside of a huge weeping willow in the back yard.
Pretty cool!
Chasing horses 
 Climbing Gates
 Making fake pouty faces
 Cozying up to Grandpa Great

 Gettin' in to Grandma Great's apple stash
And hitting home runs.
Can you see the ball there in front of Cheyenne?
Kota already has more talent in sports than I ever had!

Yeah.  It was a good day!
