More Reading

Dad and Elly have been reading most every night.They started with the series Fablehaven and read them all. And then moved onto Erogan and I think they are now on Brisingr. Those are some pretty big books for a little 8 year old but she loves them and so does Greg. Sometimes he gets into trouble because he will until midnight...on a school night. He is so naughty.

Meet Jub

This is my friend Stephanie's best friend. I know her a little...just from the wonderful stories that Steph tells me of her.
She has been diagnosed with breast cancer and just started her chemo. Chemo thru the holidays, bluh! As of right now (Dec 11) she is the hospital with a fever of 104 and its not going down so they will keep her for a week.
Stephanie will be documenting her story. I was asked to take the beginning stages so Steph could be in the photos.
I think of Jub a lot. She is one courageous woman taking it head on. I take power in that strength. She is a wonderful example to and so many around. She has touched my life and this was my only real interaction with her. I guess I feel like we've known each other for so long, thru Steph, and since the day I took photos of them I've become family.

My dear friend getting married and this time she asked me to take some photos to remember the day by. She seriuosly HATES getting her photos taken. I would take 1 shot and then hold up my finger and tell her to wait so I can get another. Worse than a 2 year old...come on Sid.

Got it.

Since this girl was tiny she always hid her smile from me but you can see this time I got it. After I got the shot I showed her that she was smiling and she then got mad at me...a little funny.

Grandpa and Uncle Ed

On the left is Uncle and the my Grandpa Lewis. I love them to death. I've always had a thing for Grandpa's they have special place in my heart.

Spent the day with Grandpa Lewis. His sweet wife has passed and has meet up with her eternal companion. Grandpa was having a tough day. I'm not really sure what was going on in his mind, he's a pretty quiet guy. He feared to participate in giving the prayer for he didn't want to get emotional. When he said that, it made me cry.
Isabella was a sweet lady. They had been married for 20 years they both met up when they had lost their eternal companions pretty close together. They dated and soon got married in the Hawaii temple for time. They both enjoyed traveling together on cruises they even went to New York. They also spent a lot of time serving in the temple together. Gonna miss her and I hope Grandpa keeps going...for my selfish reasons. I love to have him here.

Lil Stink

See how I love costumes. I had to put this one on him too cuz it fits perfectly and the best part is he doesn't care to wear it.
He really is our Lil Stink its what I call him daily. Another name he lives by is Search and Destroy. I can't get a thing done when this little guy is awake and he only takes ONE nap...its killing me with this busy season.


About Me

My photo
My passion in life is photography. I live eat and breath it....seriously sometimes I can't sleep at night. I love to be able to capture every moment of my children's lives...I'm not so sure how much they like it. They'll thank me later...right! I have been blessed to be married to my best friend for 12 years. I love that he tolerates all of my obsessions he may not get them but he supports me to go for it. So, thanks to my best friend for supporting me to make my DREAMS come true.
