Love of Amusement

Hyatt and Lowell Jr. love to use their dad as an amusement part ride. It's know wonder he stays in such good shape.

Have no idea who these cute kiddos are. They kept jumping in front of my camera while I was taking pictures for the schools. :)

Lovely Faces

Bear and Lowell Jr. enjoying a bit of face time with my camera. Sorry it's a bit bleary, my stupid camera was freaking out on me, but I couldn't resist sharing this picture.

Our sweet little dog was hit and killed by a car yesterday. I told the kids I'd post a picture of him on here. We'll miss you, Scout.

Brook's New Family

Brook is going to double the size of his family. Yes, he is a bit over whelmed, but way more excited.

Love the Face

This is my nephew Eastan. He's probably one of the most dramatic (and sweet) 8 year olds I know. :) Here he is giving me his "new" look.

13 Years & Strong

Celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary we ran away for the weekend. One of our stops was Temple Square. This is the falls that run down the Conference Center. It was nice to get away without the kids and be able to focus on just us, but it was just as nice to come home to our babies.


Every year (for the past 5) we've taken our kiddos to the community Valentine's Dance. They always have fun eating cookies and dancing. There's a great live band, "Mid-Life Crisis" that performs and prizes for all ages. Here...Jonathan and Ambrie trying to figure out how to walk while holding hands.

Brotherly Love

I love my boys, they play so well together. They hardly ever fight, which I know won't last forever so I'm taking advantage of that while I can.

You can definitely tell that Bear is way more aggressive than Bud. It's a good thing Bud is a lot like his father, in the sense that he's very laid back.

Loves to Hide

This little monkey loves to hide from me! Here she is under my sink. She's hilarious cuz I'll call her name and she'll start giggling and then say, "Hewo!" or, "Boo!"

Love The Sleeping Babes

When Bear is tired it's like he hits a brick wall and it knocks him out. Beaner was the same way, she'd go and go and go and then fall asleep in her dinner. I love watching them sleep, even if they have a chicken nugget stuck to their cheek, I'll have to put that picture on here some time.

Love to Hula

This is my beautiful niece, Kai'imi at her hula class. She's taking from a lady in my ward and I was so lucky to be able to take her tonight! The picture is of a reflection in the mirror (thus the weird light).

Sisterly Love

I love it when my sisters get to come home for a visit. I pray that Bug and Beaner are just as happy to see each other when they are grown.

Love of Money

Shaeda has found yet another thing to collect. Her Grandpa C. gave her a penny collecting board and she's been obsessed with it every since. Good thing Dad likes to help. :)

Ah, Siblings

No one wanted to take a serious picture until it was time to take a goofy one, then it was only I who goofed off. That's sibling love for you, throw me under the bus will ya.

True Love

A father who gave up smoking, drinking, coffee, his wife, chewing, green tea and other bad habits all so he could baptise his son himself. Now that is true love!!!

And Yes, we fully razed Brook about the outfit.

Love These Mornings

I love it when my kiddos wake up happy! Ambrie was quick to play this morning and obviously full of the best smiles! She loves her Daddy and vice versa.

Today was the first funeral I've had to do the luncheon for. The bottom picture is of a flower arrangement that touched me from the deceased's brother. The top is of 2 women who emulate their love by the service they give.

Ah, Young Love

Here are the young love birds, Brook and Andy
