Lizzy's Debut...

She was the best darn little tree up there!! She absolutely LOVED the flowers that her handsome Daddy got for her. She thanked him over and over. SO cute!

Funny Side Story: Lizzy was originally in the Chorus However, a lot of the children were not showing up for practice so they disbanded the chorus. The distributed them throughout the cast and Lizzy was then cast as a tree. Lizzy evidently missunderstood because when she got in the car after rehersal, she said to me: "Mom...they fired me from the chorus...They made me a tree!" (with a very sad face, as if she was being punished.) I couldn't help but turn my head to laugh because it just sounded so dang funny. Poor thing. I explained the whole thing to her and she felt much better. :)

Bound and Determined... ENJOY this winter!
Ever since I have moved here, to Utah, I just DREAD winter...
EVERY year.
(I'm a true California girl at heart.)

SO in order to change that...
I went a little nuts at Hobby Lobby buying Christmas decorations.
(okay, more than a little nuts...)
I have Christmas music on EVERY day.

And I am even done with my shopping early to ease the stress.
And I fully plan to see the beauty of the snow.
{Um...Make sure to check in on me come the end of January...K??}

Fall Family Shoot 2010

So there was this girl who fell in love with this absolutely dreamy boy... They made 4 little angels and are living HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
I saw this old barn. On the side of the road. It made the most perfect photo session backdrop. I had such a fun time shooting and editing these! Gotta love the self-timer! ;)
