byu vs csu!


Game night with Dad!  The girls went to their first of many BYU sporting events with Aaron tonight-yeehoo!  All three had a grand time watching Jimmer Ferdette lead the Cougars to victory over Colorado State.



(off they go!  they walked cause it's so close- and it's a pain trying to drive in pre-game traffic!)

crazy hair day

Crazy hair day at school for Spirit Week!  Here Haily is sandwiched by the twins in her class.  These two also take ballet with Haily in Provo with Jenny Creer-King.  So cute!



(oh no!  haily turned blue! my girls love to go on photoshop and mess around with the color controls..)

"i wish i was a little bit taller..."

"...I wish I was a 'baller', I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her..."- that is Skee Low as the ring tone on Aaron's cell these days.

 He loves to play basketball and he is fun to watch.  We have been going to his games lately and his church team made it into the tournament!  I couldn't get the best shots with my little Josette by my side the whole evening-dang  it!

'oh l'amour...'

Aaron's eyes worked great for me practicing catchlight shots.  (We will be together for our fourteenth Valentine's Day on Monday...and that look in his eyes still sends me to the outer limits...)

self obsession

I ran into a girlfriend from high school today at church.  She had visited our blog and for a moment during our conversation I felt a little sheepish of my posts- they tend to be all about me and how wonderful my family is...

And earlier this week I was visiting a very popular mormon blog and got the same feeling from that one- that each post is to describe in detail how awesome the blogger's life is...and it got a little old. 

It is one thing to post pictures of the kids for out-of-state grandparents and relatives but it's another to post and post in an effort to trump other bloggers' extraordinary lives.  And it may be just me having a realization for myself, but conceitedness is not a characteristic I admire in others and in turn do not want to seem that way- blogwise.  So pardon this little reflection on mine and others self obsession- it is a 'thing that must go'.
