Funny Kids

I just thought I should record this before I forget since my memory is not very reliable these days.
We were having FHE on Monday and I was in charge of the lesson. I was teaching about reverence. I asked Eden, "What are we supposed to think about when we are trying to be reverent at church or during a prayer?"
Eden's response: "You think about Jesus. Not the park."

Another funny thing happened with when I was teaching sharing time in Junior Primary on Sunday.
I asked the question, "Why do we have Thanksgiving?"
A very anxious and excited little girl raised her hand and responded, "So we can have Christmas!!"

Ha Ha! Kids are seriously so hilarious.

By the way, while I'm thinking of it, if you haven't picked up the new nursery manual (for those of you with young children,) it is a great FHE guide. You can also print the lessons off of the church website.

Family Blog

I have been talking about doing this for a while and I am finally going to follow through with my plan to create a separate family blog. So, I will have my photo blog for my photography stuff that doesn't really have to do with our family, and then have my photo blog. I have always felt a little weird about posting personal things on a public photo blog, but wanted people to be able to see my photos so that i could get input on how to improve.
The big change is that Jeremy and I will both be contributors to the family blog. Now, I make no promises that Jeremy will post a lot. In fact I will be pleasantly surprised if or when he does, but at least he will have the option and i won't have to always feel like I need to send pics out or post.
Anyway, we will be making the new family blog private. So, if you would like to be able to view it, just comment on here and i should have your e-mail. If I don't have your e-mail (or if you're not sure if I do,) just send it to: and I will put you on the list. Ha! I feel so powerful.
We won't be sending out invites until the blog is ready to go, but we are hoping to get it all ready before baby #2 joins our family.

Giving in

I finally decided to give in and post photos from Halloween. I just kept seeing all of your posts with cute Halloween pics. and finally decided to join you. So, here are some pics of Eden in her costume. She insisted on being a pink fairy. All pink. My Mom put her costume together. She reveled in in it. Jeremy took her trick or treating on Halloween night along with my brother and his little girl (the lady-bug). There is nothing more exciting to Eden than costumes (the non-creepy kind) and candy.

Baby 'B' Preview

When it rains, it pours. I haven't had anybody ask me to take pictures for them for a while. Then, in one week, I've had 3 calls for families. Crazy! I couldn't decide at first if I was up for it, but then decided "Heck(that's right...I'm from Utah), why not?" I am very happy that I did. I learn something new every time.
The first session was with a 2-week old baby boy whose family lives in my neighborhood. We had to break it into two separate sessions because little 'B' got tired of us messing with him, then decided he was hungry. It worked out really well though and I am excited to get the rest of the shots processed. Here are a couple of previews.
By the way, does anybody out there want to give me directions on how to put text on a photo that is to be posted? I knew how to do this in Elements, but am wondering if it is possible in Lightroom. Also, when I post the coloring on the blog looks different (less vibrant) than it does in Lightroom. Does anybody know why this is? If you know how to fix either of these, please fill me in. Thanks!
