Eden’s Baptism

As promised, here are Eden’s baptism pictures.  Well, at least pictures of her in her dress.  I didn’t take many pictures the day of since everything was so crazy and hectic.

(If you would like to know more about baptism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, go here.)

So, here she is in all her beautiful cuteness!

We had a slide show of her going while she was changing.  Unfortunately, it stopped half way through.  So here it is in its entirety if you’d like to see it all!


It was a wonderful, special day!  She was so happy and excited throughout all of it!

Eden, remember how you felt that day!  We love you!


All About Eden

One of the things that has kept me busy so far this year was Eden’s 8th birthday!

This girl is such a ham sometimes!  She is so sweet, full of energy and love, is happy to help anyone and everyone and has one of the sweetest spirits ever!

Just this weekend she came inside and left her sisters out in the backyard playing.  She came up to me and said “Don’t tell them, I’m going to clean their rooms for them.”  I thought that was so sweet.

Yup, she’s a keeper!

Got a call from Grandma.

One of her presents had a note that said “You need to look in the garbage!”

So she went to the garbage and found another note that said “Sorry- I meant the GARAGE!”

Okay, so remember the expression on her face in this picture below cause I don’t want you to think we’re lame-o parents for giving her this gift.

It’s a desk.  She had been asking for one since before Christmas.

Eden also had a ‘friend’ party.

Here’s Amanda sporting a cool hairdo.

The decor.

I know I mentioned this last year, but I buy cakes for the girls’ parties because my cakes never, and I mean NEVER, look anywhere near as cute.  They always seem to sag in the middle, and then my frosting abilities are very limited, so I let the girls pick out their cake from a catalog at the store.

Eden wanted a PJ party, so I let the kids color their own pillowcases to take home.

They also played a water game and the candybar game.  If you don’t know about those, I’ll have to tell you sometime cause they are GREAT party games!

Yup, she can be a ham!

Eden, we love you!

Up next… her baptism pics!


We’re still here!

Hello blogland!

Yes, we’re still around, still here, nothing’s happened to us.  I’ve just been a combination of too busy and lazy to actually blog.  See!!!  This is why I set that goal of blogging at least once a week last year!  When I don’t have goals like that and tell the world about them, I let things slip.

We have had a very busy 2012 so far.  I can’t believe April is over today!  I’m not ready for a third of the year to be gone already.  So, hopefully over the course of the next week or so, I’ll be catching up on this blog.  For now, I thought it would be fun to show you a picture of the girls I took at the beginning of 2011, and a picture I took of them at the end of 2011.

They’ve changed in so many ways, in just one year!  But, in so many ways, they are still the same sweet girls I love and adore.

It’s good to be back!

P.S.  Ignore the Christmas music that’s still up.  Hopefully my hubby can switch it soon.
