Wow, my baby is 15! She is leagal to go get
her driving permit. . . . but she hasn't had time to
study yet. One of these days, we will have to
take the time. . . she wants to drive so bad. I love this
picture of her. She doesn't let us take her picture
often and she is even smiling. . . . wow it does exsist. LOL.
She really does smile a lot she just doesn't let us catch it.

Twins are 11, . . . WOW!!!

Taryn's cute friends!!

The twins are now 11. Wow, they have grown up
so fast. I remember bringing them home (Taryn 5
days later than Trent) and being a whole family
again. They have always been buds and are lucky to
have each other. They even say so (most of the time).
Trent is doing awesome in piano and loves baseball and
basketball. Taryn loves to dance and loves school. She is
the only one that hates school vacations!!!

Boys and Pizza!!!

Today is my sweet sweet Miranda's birthday. Even her special birthday, she is turning 13 on the 13th. She is now a teenager. She is such a beautiful young lady and with so much talent. She is an awesome dancer and is doing very well learning the violin. She is a sweet girl and is always so worried about others and wants to see them happy. She is such a good sister to all of her siblings and is always looking out for their safety and happiness. She is an awesome daughter and makes us so proud. She has high standards and never lets them waver. She has such a special spirit and is so close to our Heavenly Father. I know He also is so proud of her and who she is becoming. She loves doing girly things. . . .make up , hair and being pampered. She loves animals and little kids. (She really loves monkeys, hence our blog background :) ) Miranda we love you so much and hope you have the happiest day and year ever!!!

Our Beautiful Mountains

I love love love the mountains, I also love photography. These are some of my better pictures. My husband has them as his screensaver on his computer, and some of his co-workers asked him if I was a professional. That made me feel good.

Joey's 6th Birthday 11/21/2009

Is HE not the cutest guy ever!

His Darling Little Friends!!

We went to see Panyo. . . It was a hit!!


Miranda's first concert.
She is doing wonderfully, hardly ever hear a
screeeeeetch :)

In the fall, Scott and I went to Vegas for an ultrasound conference. We got to stay in the Bilagio (thanks work). The hotel was sooo beautiful. We visited the lions in one of the other hotels. . . yes that is a real life lion. They were magnficent. The girls got to stay with my grandma. This I think was the highlight as they had so much fun with their great-grandma and they all with cherish the memories with her.

Getting Caught Up!!

I promised a good friend that I would get caught up and stay caught up. Thank You good friend for helping realize that this is for my family and its history as much as for anything else. So I am just going to post some pictures and label them as I go. Once I get caught up, I really hope to keep going.

Dancing 2009, the girls did so good in their recital.
