DSC Tennis by: Tyler Marsing

I'm on YouTube! This is possibly the worst video of all time, but I had to post it. This gave me a pretty great laugh.

my daily commute

My mom gave me this necklace from New Zealand! It was a little much to wear, but it goes perfectly in my car! Good idea Dad!

Normally I don't like to take pictures of myself, but I made an exception today.

My sister Stacey came up from St. George this weekend and we set the kids loose at the Kangaroo Jump. At least that is what I think it is called.. here are some candid shots of the kiddos. :)

Aiden actually asked me to take his picture! I love a willing subject. 

Beautiful sister.

I hope Gracie is a brunette! I need a brunette niece. She even has brown eyes! I love her so much.

They call it Thanksgiving. And the day after.

This first image is perfect. Laney is all primed and ready to do another cheer (She's always dancing around the house and doing cheer moves), Tom is working hard (or hardly working?), Uncle Jack is probably talking about cars, real estate, little jack or the nash and Jake ... is just being Jake :)

Here is jake again! I'm biased because I love him most. 

Another picture of jake? weird. How did this get in here? shh don't tell him. Yeah I'm talking to you Lexi and Mirissa.

Laney set up our Christmas tree! It looks so cute :)

Night Time

I am a night owl. 
Somehow I can have the busiest day ever and be tired all day, then once it is 10:40 p.m. I have a sudden burst of energy and I have to get out of bed. How can I sleep when I have images like this running through my mind?

Yep. I'm a night owl.

Also I put really cute pictures from my Alice in Wonderland shoot up on my blog and i wouldn't mind if you looked at them :)

Jarvie Digital

Guys. I just bought this picture of the LDS Draper Utah Temple from Jarvie Digital. I seriously think that everyone should buy one of these pictures. He is having a 50% off sale until midnight tonight. I got my print for only $10.50! It is 12x12 and will fit perfectly in the frames I bought from IKEA. I'm so happy right now.

This photo right here is probably my favorite one -

Two Years? No way. I do NOT believe this.

Jake and I have been married for two whole years! Our anniversary was on the 18th of November and it is blowing my mind. I am hoping that this helps us convert from being "newly weds" to "oldy weds". But I'm pretty sure that you can't get past being newly weds until you have at least 3 kids. haha. I love you bebe. 

I hope you enjoy these pictures of us.. being us.

Want a bajillion pictures of yourself?

If you answered yes to that question... You should be a photo major.

Or at least a model. 

Sometimes I feel like I'm both? haha that was a joke. 

This one is called - oh haha is my hair blowing in the wind? I'm gonna laugh about it

 These next two don't have names since John Reese took them and he probably should name them. Cause he's famous.

My mom and dad are cooler than yours.

I miss my parents like crazy! Here are some pictures that they send me recently. 

Can you believe how beautiful New Zealand is? Wow! 

Maybe there is someone reading this blog who doesn't know why my parents are in New Zealand or what they are doing. My parents are Mission Presidents of the New Zealand Wellington Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their purpose is to spread the gospel to the people of New Zealand. They are trying to encourage missionaries to be faithful and return to be successful members of the church. They are also helping people to accept the gospel and be baptized. I'm so proud of them!!
