Family Pictures at the Temple

So we have had family pictures taken at golf courses, parks, front yards, on the side of the road and many other places but we have NEVER had a family picture taken at the temple!!! Until now. I really wanted to get one so we finally did. I think the last time we took pictures at the temple was on our wedding day! What better background? I think they turned out good...even though Delly drew all over her face with blue marker right before we needed to get ready and Avery fell in the grass and got grass stains on her pants and Gage has one red sock and one black sock on....what can I say....this is our family!

Painting with Delly

Every time I look at this picture it makes me laugh! My sister and I were re-doing the girls room. We were making stripes on the wall...which turns out is harder than it seems. Delly claimed the ladder for herself. It was HERS and she didn't like it one bit when I would get on it. She kept trying to push me off with her little elbow. It made me laugh...and it made the job even harder! Poor thing was neglected that can see she is still in her nightgown and I think this picture was taken in the afternoon! Oh well... the room turned out cute!

Captain Deano's Crew

My sister's little boy Dean was diagnosed with diabetes a little over a year ago. This year he had is own CREW to support him at the JDRF annual Walk for a Cure at Tempe Town Lake. The kids were so excited to walk the 5K with Deano. They all did great even though it was a little warm that day and it was tiring for them. About halfway through, Delly decided it was a good time to throw up all the water she had been drinking. That made her upset and we had to take turns carrying her the rest of the way...and pushing the empty stroller! Oh well.. we did it and will do it again next year and for as long as Dean has to suffer with his disease.

Halloween this year was great always! I think Drey gets the most excited. I had purchased Adelle a cute witch costume, complete with the matching hat, and when it came time to put it on she threw the mother of all fits. She absolutely would not wear it no matter how much pleading I did. So she put on a Dora night gown instead. Not as cute, but she was happy. Avery went as Dorothy, Gage was the Burger King and Drey was Freddy or Jason or some type of mass murderer. Lovely, huh? We went to the Queen Creek festival and had so much fun! I don't know why there's dots all over my pictures but its really annoying.

Rocky Point Vacation

We stayed at the most luxurious condos in Mexico...Las Palomas! It had a waterslide, lazy river, hot tub, kiddie pool, a few big pools and if that wasn't enough, the beach was right there,too! The kids had the time of their life... and so did the grown-ups!

We used to call the street mall the "dirt mall" because it used to be dirt streets. We were pretty surprised to get there and find paved streets! So we can't call it the dirt mall anymore.

Drey couldn't get enough of the ocean!

Adelle Taylen.....

This picture melts my heart everytime I see it. It was taken by an excellent (published) brother. I love it!!

I'm finally a BLOGGER!

I've been wanting to start a blog for awhile now but was a little intimidated. I'm not super savvy when it comes to computers but it was surprisingly easy to make our own blog site. So I'm gonna give it a go. I had a friend tell me she uses it as a journal as well as a fun way to keep up to date with family and I thought it might be fun to try! Now if I can just figure out how to post pictures!!!
