The girl side of the family

So we took our family pictures last week, and decided that we needed to have the girls side of the family too! So while she looks happy in these TWO pictures, Shelby was not happy to be out in the cold WAY past naptime. I was so excited to find a couple of really cute smiles. Dusty is one lucky guy to have all these beautiful girls surrounding him every day!!!
Especially Mandy! Isn't she georgous? And 7 months pregnant no less. Now I know what they are talking about when they say that pregnant women glow! You are beautiful Mandy!

My OWN family pictures!

I LOVE Christmas time! I love the snow! And I especially love the snow falling on the red rocks of Kanab. I havn't done family pictures for like a year and a half. So I was VERY grateful for my mom to come brave the snow to take these for us!!! Especially since she is sick! I hope you get better soon mom! I can't believe how quickly my boys are growing up! I love my family so much! I feel so blessed every day to have these boys surrounding me. even the weeks filled with stitches and root canals! But I'll save that story for another post!

The lights at Temple Square

We love to go see the lights on Temple Sqare. It is a magical place. It feels like a fairytale and this year was no different. Surrounded by all of my family, we ventured out into the cold, to ride the train from Aarons work (a few blocks from the Temple) to Temple square. The kids love to be with their cousins! Especially when it comes to new adventures. When we got there you could feel the excitement in the hundreds of people gathering in. We took pictures and had snacks, and waited, more patiently than I've seen my kids wait for anything for a while. And then..... They were on! An Ahhhhh rippled through the crowd, and the kids eyes got wide as they turned in every direction trying to take it all in. What an amazing sight. My favorite part was listening to the bagpipes playing Christmas music in the background. It was the kind of night you pack away in your greatest memory box, and pull out when you need a smile!
