The spring at the ranch...

On the family ranch where I spent so many days as a child, there is a little secret freshwater spring that is like a little hidden fairy tale. Water like glass and clear as air. This is where we took some more pictures- they are weeks old, but they still are worth sharing.

Could I have been blessed with more beautiful children? I do not think it possible...

Forgive my leg in this last one. Lauren was inching closer and closer to the edge. I was a little nervous she was going swimming.

Everyone is finally feeling better! Here's some spooky stuff we've been up to:

Halloween Carnival. Gage was sick this night and wouldn't even get out of the car. He was Ironman.

Super SPOOKY haunted gingerbread house. Gage ever the perfectionist:

Lauren licked the roof. Gage was mad. So was her dentist.

Then Jossy licked it too. I think the finished product turned out pretty good!

Happy Halloween!!

Mom, can I have the pink bowl?

We have been sick. Jossy prefers pink for her puke bowl. Gage and Lauren prefer to throw up in my bed. I generally do a little better, and make it to the bathroom. Yes, you can be impressed.

I've got some fun pictures to post when everyone's feeling a little better and I can escape.

Remember to Sanitize!!!

DIY family photos.

Me and Jen are aspiring photographers. As luck would have it, the guys just happened to plan a non cancellable hunting trip the same day we had family picture scheduled. So, we launched a surprise attack after conference on Saturday when we knew they were doing nothing.

These are a few of my faves: This one I love because of Jossy's pose. What a girlie girl!
This candid shot Jen got while we were just finishing up after the pose. I actually think I like it best, because nobody looks mad and the smiles are natural.
Don't be surprised when you see an encore performance of one of these on our Christmas cards!

Thanks Jen!!

Jam out 'cause you know you want to...

I'm totally behind the times in the music department. It's true. I FINALLY added a playlist after Jen showed me how. I've been blogging for about a year. She's been at it less than two weeks. Some people just don't have the gift, ya know. I think you will enjoy my culturally diverse selection of tunes- variety IS the spice of life, after all.
