Finally Family Pics

We went to a park on Monday and I took my camera and tripod, set it up, turned on the timer, and took some pictures. I brought my sister so the kids would all look in the same direction and hopefully smile. They were very wiggly but we got a few good ones. I wanted a few more and hoped the kids would smile.  Anyway, I was pleased how these turned out. I probably could have done more if I had better editing softwear. Someday.

Photo session and Holloween

Got Some cute pic of our kids and family. Jay's cousin Brittany Franco took some good pics for us and we love them. thanks Britt! Excited to put them on my wall!

 Kason in Orange, Treyden in red

Love Edens. Both Kason and Treyden had the same look in almost all the pics. Wish they would have smiled. 

She is a great, tender loving big sister. 

Just me and the kids. Jay wasn't there yet. He was coming straight from work. So later on the family pics were rushed and it was a little too dark. But Britt did a good job of editing them up. 

I LOVE this one

Just for fun Not very often do I get one of just me:)

That's it. Yea! Britt did fantastic. Thanks! We might try for a couple more family pics with my camera for fun and see if we can get these boys to smile good. 

So, this is Halloween. Kason is frowning and Jay didn't smile. In their defense the pic took forever. The guy kept saying"oh that didn't work let me try again" and I am thinking our kids only hold still for like 2 seconds so hurry quick.But we got it and we had fun party hopping to our ward, my parents carnival, and a cousins party. We were Despicable Me. Boys were minion, Eden was Edith, Jay was Gru and I was the girl in the 2nd movie named Lucy. Still haven't seen it yet, but that is on our "to do" list. The kids had a blast and ate too much candy, so I guess it was a success right?

A Prince like Daddy

           The other night I was telly Eden a bedtime story and then we were talking about our day. I had gotten my wedding dress out and put it on just for fun and Eden had thought it amazing and beautiful. She wanted a dress like it. So we started talking that someday she would find a kind handsome prince like daddy and wear a pretty white dress and get to be married inside the Temple. Her eyes got big and she was so excited. " A prince like daddy?!!!! In the Temple?!!!! OK!!!!", she said. It was so cute. She really looks up to Jay. She loves the Temple and loves to wear pretty dresses. If she finds a man, a prince like Jay, I will be overjoyed. They don't come much better than him. I am glad Eden will set her sights hi. Love that girl, and lover her daddy:)

A Quick Laugh for Ya

   So tonight we went to the temple and did Noble family pic for Gmas Bday then we went to a church and had cake and did an Around the Circle. Si while we were there my kids were walking around and playing. Eden and Kyria ( cousin Lauras daughter) were playing together and during some songs that we sang they were dancing. then Eden takes Kyrias hand and puts the other on her shoulder like how couples dance. So cute. Also at the Temple they were walking down the sidewalk holding hands.
  Then Kason was sitting on the floor in the church and found some napkins. He was entertain for like 5 min trying to scrub out scuff marks on the floor. Half the room was busting up while people were trying to say nice things about Gma
  Then they were all just wondering around and Treyden just goes right up to uncle Robert and sits on his lap for 10 min like he was his best friend. They are fun and very friendly for sure. They say hi to everyone in the store and anywhere else I go. Its fun to always get good comments about my cute kids. Everywhere I do someone stops me and has something usually good to say beside the overstated comment "Well, you sure have your hands full". Yeah Yeah I have heard that like 100 times already. They are full of love, laughter, hugs, kisses, learning experiences, and my most precious possessions. I wouldn't trade for anything else to make my hands so full. Here's to my sweet little ones!

5 Years!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!!

Time sure does fly when you are having fun! Five years ago today I married the man of my dreams, Jay Hunt Russell. Our journey so far has had lots of ups and downs, but mostly ups. I wouldn't trade any of it. We have grown closer together and I seriously didn't think I couldn't love him more than I did on our wedding day. Jay, I love you more today than I did 5 years ago. Jay you are my very best friend. I cherish our love and our relationship, as well as the beautiful family we have created together. Thanks for picking me out of the crowd and pursuing me, for loving me, and for helping me grow to be a better person. You motivate me! I love you Jay! Happy Anniversary!
 Here are some pictures for recap over the years from wedding day and dating on to our family now. Boy its been a good ride.
