Christmas Eve 2009

For the past few years we have made it a tradition to go sledding on Christmas Eve. We drive up to South Fork in Provo canyon where there has always been enough snow for us to play with the grand kids.
Once everyone is worn out from playing in the fresh wintry air we head to Tepanyaki for a yummy meal prepared before our eyes. Every year there seems to be one child who is frightened of the fire. I wonder which of the kids are imagining how fun it would be to play with fire and knives everyday. And get paid for it. That smile is for REAL! I love spending time
with these awesome people.
I can't get enough of them!

Beautiful Bride

Can I ever have too many pictures
of my amazingly beautiful daughter?
This one has been labeled
the brides dress magazine ad shot.

I love this smile.
Do you think the dry grass
is tickling her ankles?

Those beautiful teeth
cost me almost as much
as the whole wedding event.
Sure glad the smile was already paid for.
Such a beautiful girl
from the inside out!

What a beautiful afternoon
for a photo shoot.
This set of Bridals were
taken by Rachel.

Friends Bring Happiness

So how appropriate is it to post pictures of the bride in her wedding gown before the wedding? Around our house we try to shatter traditions on a regular basis. Notice the dress is ivory? Andi's skin tone is more radiant in the off-white. We know- she tried this dress in both shades.
Talyn and Andi have known each other since sixth grade. It was such a blast to see her at Andi's first bridal shower. At the last minute Talyn was able to go with Andi on her one of her bridal photo shoots. What a friend! We love and adore you, Talyn!!!
More pics to come- just wanted to throw out a teaser.
