It's almost Christmas and though we are enjoying it in Texas this year, It is making me reflect on that time last year when the darling girls from smallfryblog.com and the talented Jenner Brown from Lumineux films came to our home and filmed a Christmas Holiday Workshop. I'm so happy to have it because I don't always remember to video the kids. Its a little treasure for me! You can watch it here.

We are Moving to Dallas Texas! It was all confirmed a couple weeks ago. Ben is VP of American Dream Labs with Glenn Beck. After He did Man In The Moon, it's been a constant with him flying back and forth to TX. So the time has come, literally like next week! I'm so overwhelmed with getting the house up for sale and tying up loose ends but also so excited to take this new adventure. Last time we moved, I was 5 months pregnant, so it doesn't surprise me that I am doing it again about the same timing in this pregnancy. I was asked to feature my home over on White Arrow's Beautiful blog. I am so happy she asked me, otherwise I probably wouldn't have taken any photos of our home. We have loved living here in Highland, and it will definitely be missed!

Im a slacker! but better late than never. last year I didn't make any costumes and was feeling pretty guilty about it which is silly but I'm weird like that so this year I tried a little harder and made Miles a "Max, wild things" costume. He is pretty Wild these days so it fit him perfectly and he even played the part once he got it on. Olea loves Scooby Doo and thinks Velma is the bomb and with her glasses fetish, she nailed it. Bella couldn't decide what she wanted to be but found this fabulous pink dress at the DI. I wanted to make an antler head piece and she agreed it was cool so she turned into a dancing deer. I think these are my favorite costumes on my kiddos so far, and this Halloween was the best. I loved watching Miles figure out that he could knock on doors and they give you candy. He still talks about Halloween.

I had the privilege of photographing the extremely beautiful Marlee from The Girl Most Likely and her most handsome husband, Tyler. (Ben's close cousin) They are always fun to hang out with and always have something exciting to tell us, like... Marlee will soon be gracing the pages of the well known magazine, NYLON. As she should be! Keep your eyes peeled!! and, as you can see, the hard part about these photos was picking just a few to post.
It's hard to believe that my sweet Bella turned eight and had the chance to get baptized. She is such a beautiful, talented and sweet girl. She gave me the experience of being a momma and I have learned so much from her. Her baptism day was beautiful. Grams came to town and brought Chloe and Ellie. My Mom was recovered enough from her cancer surgery to come and speak. Ben Baptised and confirmed her a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was glowing all day! I asked her where she would like her photos taken (thinking she would say in the flowers or by a tree) and she chose the Temple. I love this first shot. I hope she always strives to live her life worthy to attend the Temple. She is so lucky to have such a great Dad! These are iphone pictures that were taken following her baptism. We celebrated her birthday afterwards by singing Happy Birthday to her. I was proud of myself for making this ruffle cake at midnight. My sister gave me an easy recipie for fondant and It actually turned out pretty cute.
