So excited!

I was going to wait...but I can't! Dan agreed to take family pictures yesterday! I took Sheena's family pictures last weekend, and she agreed to take some for us! She sent me a sneak peek last night, and I love them! Here are 2 of my favorites so far! I can't wait to see the rest! Well...we survived Kylen's 1st fever! It was between 103-104 for 3 days. It was sooooooooooo hard to see that little guy feeling yucky! His fever broke yesterday and he's starting to look a lot better. Now...if only I could get rid of the cold! I get all misty-eyed everytime I look at this picture. Poor guy!

I met up w/ Sheena and her family today for a quick family session. It was so cold out!!!!!!! I was a little jealous of Kylen snug as a bug in his stroller. Here's a quick sneak peak from today. I'm so excited! We're going to get together again next Sunday for smash the cake pictures! Our kiddos are 10 days this is going to be fun!!! Well...It's getting I'm going to bed. I'm going to TRY to get up early! Wish me luck!

He makes me smile!

Today was so much fun! Kylen and I went to the park to try to take some birthday pictures for his invitations. We went to Party City to get some balloons. I don't know what I was thinking b/c it's so close to Halloween. It was a zoo in there! Luckily, the guy at the balloon counter squeezed my order in! We took some shots at the park and at home. The ones at home in the backyard turned out a lot better. Kylen LOVED the balloons. This picture just really made me smile when I got to it. ;-)

Work was so much fun today! The Air Force set up a great tour of the base (with lunch...yum...thanks Mrs. R!) and we got to tour a C17! It was so cool! We were all like little kids! After that we went over the the recycling center. probably don't think that would be cool..but it was! They recycle EVERYTHING there...well...just about! To make things even better...I can bring my stuff there to recycle. I'm so excited! Now I can get rid of that darn surround sound system that Dan broke! I hope we get to do this again next year. It's so great to learn what goes on in the lives of the students and families.

Pumpkin, Pumpkin!

Oh boy I'm I'm going to make this one fast! Yesterday Kylen and I joined Auntie Kelly and Uncle Jeff-y for a fun day at the pumpkin patch. It was a blast! I would have to say the best part of it was when Kelly, Kylen, and I were dancing in the rows of pumpkins. (They had a live band.) Here are a couple of snaps from the day...and another one I just found that I LOOOOOVVVEEE! Nigh-night!

Kylen officially has 2 teeth now! It's been tough...but we're all surviving. I think he's working on his top ones now. Here are a few snapshots of his teeth and a couple of pics from this morning.

On Sunday Kylen had a sleepover at Grammy's house! Yeah for mommy....right?! Well...I thought so! LOL! I guess I'm so used to Kylen waking me up b/c I totally overslept! I woke up to Bella barking her head off and poor Mo ringing my doorbell ready to go to SeaTac for Reading First training. Oh NO! I quickly answered the door, threw on some clothes, brushed my teeth, and ran out the door. Come to find out later on in the day that I set my alarm for 6:30 PM not AM. SILLY me! Well, I better get some sleep. Round 2 for Reading First training tomorrow! are a few pics of Jessica's little guy Elijah. Isn't he a cutie?!

Love is in the air! * [Tacoma Engagement Photographer]

I had the honor today to take "E" pics for Joel and Jessica. The Carter Lake staff (and parents too) have been praying for a wife for Joel for quite some time. ;-) We're thrilled that Joel found Jessica. They're getting married on December 20, 2008! (my birthday) Jessica is so beautiful...I can't wait to photograph their wedding. Anyways...I'm on my way to bring Ky to grammy's...a night to myself...woo woo!! Here's a sneak peek. Enjoy!
