The most wonderful time of the year...

I truly LOVE fall....

I wish it could last until SPRING.
Sunday we drove up the canyon to escape the mess we are living in {story another time}. It was beautiful. We are so lucky to live in such a majestic and awesome state.

More of Sam's photos to come...


Happy Birthday, Stud Muffin!!!

Today is my favorite nephew Chase's


I cannot believe you are an official adult!
It seems like you were born yesterday. You were the cutest baby boy I had ever seen!
You are now the most handsome MAN! {that freaks me out to type}
You are not only handsome, you are also kind, tender-hearted, and thoughtful.
We are proud of you and all of your hard work!
We are so lucky to have you in our lives!
Happy Birthday, STUD MUFFIN!


Happy Anniversary...

Eleven years ago I married this great man.
We have been through a lot in the NINETEEN years we have know each other. I know, we are too young to have known each other for that long. I was sixteen. Oops, I just gave away my age. Which, I try not to ever do;0 We have been through great ups and very low downs. With these highs and lows has come a greater love and appreciation for this great man I call my HUSBAND. Here's to MANY more BABE!

{How is it that men get better looking with age? Not fair!}


Sick DADDY...

Sam has a pretty vicious cold. While shopping with me after school yesterday, Ashlyn wanted to buy Dad some "feel better" flowers. "Yellow will make him feel much better" she said. She is so sweet and thoughtful. They did make him feel better.
