mister mischievious

I heard a strange noise coming from the kitchen and went downstairs to find this..... Faze had opened the jar of peanut butter and scooping out globs of it and smacking it onto the fridge. These pictures just don't do it justice! This is a super short video of him in action!

A new toy

I bought this fun airplane teeter-tooter for the kids. Clearly they love it!

A new 'do'

Sienna has been begging me to let her get her hair cut and to have bangs...I am very anti bangs, so I was really hesitant to take her. I finally relented and look how darling it turned out. She looks sooooo grown up!

Riverton Guard

For the past year I have had the privledge of working with these great young women from Riverton. I feel so blessed to be able to have a job that I LOVE SO MUCH! These girls have done such an amazing job this year, I am so proud of each of them.

This is Brianna-my partner in crime! I taught Bri in high school and then she grew up and went to college, did an independent guard (Fantasia!), got married, and came home to Utah. Now she and I coach together, she is AMAZING and I wouldn't be able to do this without her!

What a bunch of CRAZY girls! I personally think that our rehearsals are so much fun, we have some pretty funny personalities on our team. Many laughs can be heard at our rehearsals (very dangerous for anyone with a WEAK blatter ;-)

I thougt that this was a pretty cool action shot! The girl with the rifle is doing a barrell roll (you can't tell but both feet are off the ground) and look at those flags!

CUTE pictures!

Superstar Faisal

Faze has become quite the little poser, whenever he see's you with a camera you just have to say "Say Cheese" and he will start posing. These are some of the poses that he did for us when we were taking his Easter pictures. As my grandma would say, "What a lil shaver".

Taelynn's easter dress

Taelynn loves to pose for pictures...this is her on easter.

I wanted to take each of the kids' picture on Easter, but Sienna was not being very cooperative!

My four blessings!

Yes, I said blessings! Sometimes I need to remind myself that they are in fact my greatest joy, like when I am scrubbing crayon and marker off of the walls (Faisal's newest pasttime). I love being their mom! Sienna-10, Taelynn-7, AnaLeigha-4, Faisal-1. What sweet little monkies they all are!

New to blogging

So my dear friend Amy has been hounding me to get my blog going. To be honest, the whole thing looks intimidating...I have no idea what I am doing or even if this post will make it on to my blog! So please forgive me if this ends up looking amaturish or reminds me of when I first started scrapbooking, those first scrapbooks are so embarrassing! I guess that I will learn (and copy) as I go. So here's to my first attempt at blogging!
