senior portrait

I made it to the Everglades and didn't even get eaten by an aligator/crocidile. Mosquitoes, that's another story. We have travelled a couple of thousand miles to end up where we are, leaving family behind. To my surprise, I have family right here (my mom's cousin's family). So we had a fun time. She so full of life and happiness! It was lots of fun. Enjoy the slideshow!

Welcome to Florida

My little one has turned 1 and we went in the backyard for some photos. I waited a couple weeks past his first birthday and my procrastination paid off this time. He started walking, and 5 teeth instead of one. The older kids got in a couple of the shots. I may be getting old and tad nostalgic, but the kids are growing up fast. We've been enjoying our time in Florida - humidity and all. :) There are experiences that we wouldn't have had anywhere else. The kids have even got to hold a baby alligator (mouth taped up) and a baby monkey. So much excitement. :) Enjoy the slideshow!

Happy Mother's Day

With just a few days before the official Mother's Day, the YW brought their mothers (and a couple of substitute mothers) to mutual. There was lots to do - Hand scrubs, facials and manicures, yummy food, goofy photos, and just spending time together. There were a lot of laughs!

Thanks to everyone one for their smiles and willingness to go a little crazy at the photo booth (and for those that brought props and helped clean up). So, to mothers and substitute mothers everywhere - Happy Mothers!

Welcome to Wisconsin!

Wisconsin is so green and beautiful. I don't think I have see so much green. Emma was actually excited to see a dirt lot the other day. It must be that Arizona is ingrained in me - I like to see a little bit of the brown stuff. So, when it was time to take Austin's 7 year old pix - is he really that old?!? - I went for the sand. Which happen to be the lovely shores of Lake Michigan. We'll celebrate the Wiconsin trees later. For now, enjoy the amazing contrast of sky, sand, water, and plants - with my cute kiddos in the mix.

Good bye Arizona

How appropriate - one of the last few days in Arizona, I spent it taking photos of our dear friends. The smiles are adorable, and the "other" expressions are just as cute. It is so fun to see the personalities coming through - The girls rocking the cute outfits, the toddler doing only what they had to before he tried to run away again, and the baby so cute and loved by his family. We miss you guys!

kid photos

Things are warming up. Summer is on it's way and there is nothing like a barefoot walk in the park. Check out the slideshow of these two cute kids.

engagement photos

My credibility with at least a couple 1st graders just went up - I got to take photos of their teacher and her fiance. :) These two are too cute! We took a stroll in downtown Casa Grande and then when we got closer to sunset, we made our way over to the golf course where he proposed. Join in on the fun and check out some of the favorites.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas....

It seems like just yesterday we enjoyed the Drama Club's production of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Now three week and one busy Christmas Break later I finally posted the pictures!! We (I think I can speak for everyone there) had a lot of fun attending the performance and want to thank the faculty, staff and students for all their hard work. And a special thanks is due for Ms. Parkinson and Fix, you girls did an awesome job!! Enjoy...
