This Year Seems Like Last Year...Hmmm

You'd think after all the craziness of Christmas and the holidays that once the new year started, things would slow down. You'd think that, but it hasn't! :)

The first week of January was filled with photography and tantrums and babies being born and a wedding to celebrate! I got to take some newborn pictures for a Sister in our Ward, he was such a sweet baby, just a few days old with TONS of dark hair. So fun! Later that day I took some family pictures for Kristie's family, trying once again to get some good shots. Its too bad it gets dark so early still, so frustrating! In the middle of the week Sam had some gum and decided to stretch it out and wrap it around his neck (I know, what the heck right?!), well this resulted in a full on melt down, screaming mess. He screamed when we tried to get it off, he screamed when we put peanut butter on it, he screamed when we made him take a bath, he screamed and screamed and screamed. I seriously thought the neighbors were going to call the police, and it honestly left my whole body shaking for about an hour after he stopped screaming. Yay for three year olds. The best part of the week was my brother and sister-in-law had their first baby! A sweet little girl named Lara Rochelle, weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 20 inches long. My dad put this picture of my brother as a newborn up, and I compared it to Lara's newborn picture; I wish I had one of Tamsyn to put on the other side! I think she's so beautiful, I wish I could kiss on those cheeks all day!

To end the first week of January we went to an open house for my cousin Jordan who was married in Utah in December. The kids decided it was a free for all to run completely crazy, all over, into the kitchen and under tables--aren't kids grand?! ;) We had a lot of fun seeing friends and family and dancing and watching the kids dance (in between trying to catch Kimball from getting away) was too funny! Ashlee looked amazing, her dress was so beautiful, and Jordan always looks studly. :)

This week isn't much better for me, I have wedding invitations to design, a coupon class to attend, a Relief Society activity to get ready for (which means buying supplies for 35 people! Sheesh.), etc. etc.
Pray for me okay? :)

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Wow busy week! I love the story about Sam. One day you will laugh about it. Just repeat the words from Nemo, "Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming..." It helps me sometimes. :)
