Playing with toys ...(Photoshop)

Well... One of the funnest inventions of these magical times is "playing with pictures" Who would have ever thought that this would be possible ? "Photo-shop" is just such a great toy!! If I am not careful, I could spend hours playing with this !! And because the imagination is ENDLESS so is this toy! And it is not too hard... My 7 year old can do all of this stuff.... Of course , the boys know way more than me anyway... Pam's birthday was recently and because we didn't take a millionth of the pictures we do now or we wish we had of our childhood, I decided we could concoct some up and that could be just as fun!!! Hence ..anything is possible... ( This is exactly why I don't believe any of the "forwards" I receive with amazing pictures in them!) Who could ever be bored in this new world of ours????

Getting ready for HALLOWEEN!

Fall is such a beautiful time of year!!! We are officially over the SWINE FLU now over here and have actually survived it all!!! WE are now getting ready for Halloween festivities which is honestly most of my kids favorite holiday! SCARILY enough ! But we try to use the month of October as a reason to do all kinds of fun things!!! We have already painted pumpkins , made cutout cookies ( very messy but a lot of yummy fun!) And we are now in the process of creating Halloween costumes...........Hmmmmmmmm.... I wonder what else we can do?

Don't let summer end!!

This summer has been great fun , but I just don't want it to end! Every single day has been so busy and especially with the wedding time has gone by way too fast. It seems as though when I was a child the long summer days could go on forever, and we could soak every minute out of it and lay in the hot summer sun forever! Right Pam? We had a great childhood, perfect really. Lakes , and camping, and drive-in movies, and just simply sleeping under the stars. Everything was so simple then. I really am pretty sure that time goes by at the speed of lightening now. I just want it to stop right now so we can relish every minute with the children. They really need to stop growing up. Where is Never Land when you need it?

Well the wedding is over, it was beautiful and is locked in our memories forever. Our little girl is married, and all grown up. Aaron is a sweetheart and we are happy to welcome him into our family. Jessica looked like the princess from a lovely fairytale , and we hope they live happily ever after!
The wedding was all done in beautiful bright colors , with Chinese lanterns hanging from the trees and streams of brightly colored ribbons. The cake was beautiful , and held together wonderfully even in the extremely hot temperatures ! A little company entitled "A piece a cake" was the artist and baker of that lovely piece of art.
Jessica and Aaron wanted to include everyone so there were several in the wedding party , including 5 little tiny boys and 6 little girls . We're grateful that the weather was beautiful...(always a worry when having an outdoor wedding). Their ceremony was beautiful, with a very sweet bishop who knew them both very well.
Thank you Curtis and Elise for all of your hard work , and the use of your lovely garden home!

Fun at Annies and a tiny new baby

Posted by Picasa

A brand new baby

We are so happy that baby Adeline was brought to this world safe , and sound.
Mommy and baby are doing great! We love her already , and she already belongs and seems so familiar.
What a sweet baby she is , and of course, everyone adores her! She likes to gaze around and watch everyone. She only pouts a little when she is hungry. Annie is such a sweet mommy and her daddy and brother, and sisters just can't get enough of her! Everyone gathers around to talk to her when she is awake, she is such a little blessing.
It will be great to get the family together in August . I just wish I could hug my very large family all at once I love them so much!
