Wilson Birthday catch up

Trying to keep this post simple. To many pictures to choose from I just picked my three favorites.

This is Wilson on the morning of his birthday. Discovering that the birthday fairy had visited and left him balloons (totally stole that idea from a friend!)
And of course enjoying a birthday cupcake!
Or two...!

Happy birthday buddy!
So excited for Christmas this year! I know you are going to love it!

Merry Christmas

As is tradition in my family
Wilson, Ryan and I set up our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving.
Our little boy is such a big help.
After getting tired of getting yelled out about things he shouldn't touch
Wilson decided to make trouble in the kitchen.
This is what we found...
After getting the whole tree set up I had Ryan give Wilson a bath
while I put on the lights and some of the ornaments.
Then the fun began!
My cute boy loved helping put the ornaments on the tree!!!
My favorite part of the evening happened when Wilson found a small bag
(which he called his purse)
and started to stuff ornaments in it!

My favorite season by far!

My latest masterpieces!

Last Tuesday night in Young Woman's we had our YW in excellence program. We were lucky to have accomplished concert pianist Lenora Brown speak to us. She talked to us about her life both in the gospel and with the piano. At the end of speaking to us she gave us two pieces of advice. 1) Make good choices. 2) Find something you truly love.

The first thing that came to mind is my photography. I have always, always loved it, but lately I have been lucky that several people have asked for me to take their pictures! These opportunities have helped my creativity and learn new things. Here is a sample of what I have been doing.

I have had a few people say that they would like me to take their pictures. I would honestly love to. Just give me a call and we can set something up!

This year for Halloween Wilson was a Monkey! And he loved his costume.....well he put up with it....well I bribed/tricked him and sometimes he was okay with it.

The first day in our Halloween marathon was our wards trunk or treat on Tuesday. This year I was in charge and well lets just say that is another story for another day and boy am I glad it is over!

Friday was our big day. We had lots of places to go and people to see. We took Ryan to work in the morning. Then went straight home pick up our friends and went for a photo shoot (because we needed to fit one more thing in). Not my best shoot to date, but I wanted a really good photo of Wilson in his costume and I am happy with what I got.

Next on our list was a trip to go see my dad at his work. It was about noon at this time and Wilson was already worn out so he took a little nap on our way.

Here is Papa in his security costume!

Next up we went to see my mom or as Wilson calls her "Emaw". He had a good time at her work finding all of her hidden candy stashes and slamming her office door!

Next up we went to Daddy's work. Can you tell he was exhausted by this point? He quickly woke up when the trick or treating started!

After daddy's work we got to go home and take a little nap and then it was on to a party at my parents house. This is a picture of all the grandkids and the pumpkins we carved!

Saturday morning we went over and visited my grandpa and his wife Mickey.

And our last stop was at Ryan's parents house!

Grandma and Grandpa were so nice they put out their basket of candy and let Wilson go to town! The funny thing was that instead of putting it in his bag he handed it out to everyone there.

It was a fun Halloween. Ryan and I made sure we thoroughly enjoyed our last not having to go trick or treating!

I love this weather!

I have been enjoying this lovely fall weather and I was so excited to find snow on the ground this morning!

I have been really lucky lately to have many opportunities to take pictures for several people. I thought it was about time that I shared what I have been doing! Here is a little sample!
