Our "family" photos 2009!

Tyler and I got some "family" photos done earlier this week by my great friend and mentor Dustin Izatt of Dustin Izatt Photography. Since we don't have kids yet (besides my yorkies of course) we decided to do an engagement style shoot. It was so much fun to hang out with Dustin & he did such an amazing job! We absolutely love them, even more than our REAL engagements we had done last year when we got married. You can see them larger & even more HERE

Father's Day

Father's Day weekend was great! Saturday we had our whole family together, it was a special treat to have Porter over for the first time! We all got to see Porter roll over from his tummy to his back! He is not even a month old yet!

Here is a picture of him and his cute mommy while we were all hanging out.

Emerie watching Porter, they are the first 2 grandbabies!My mom made homemade pizza for us to enjoy & it was just so great to see everybody and be together.

Sunday, we decided to go on a picnic to celebrate Father's day. We were wanting to go up in the mountains but it started to be really rainy and windy unfortunately so we just went to Nichols park near our house. It was still really fun & we enjoyed the intense hail storm as we were driving! It is always great to be with family, and I am very grateful that I have family so close.

I am also so grateful for my daddy. It was especially bittersweet this year to be grateful to have my dad here with us because of the scare he gave us all a month or so ago. We love him so much & we are so thankful for all he has taught us and will continue to teach us!

Porter Ray has arrived!!

We are so excited about the new arrival of my brother Aaron & sis-in-law Meghann's baby boy! His name is Porter Ray, and he came yesterday May 31st @ 1:59 PM. Meghann had to receive a C-section because the umbilical cord was too short! He weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz. & is 19 inches long. He is a tiny bundle of joy & we already love and adore him SO much! He is such a blessing in all of our lives & we are so excited that he is finally here!

Aaron & Meghann, we love you guys so much & we are so excited about this new little guy. We already have so much love for him & it will only grow. He is a choice spirit of our Heavenly Father & he couldn't have been born to better parents. What a tremendous blessing he is in all of our lives! We can't wait to see what life holds for your cute family, CONGRATULATIONS!!

This picture was taken when my little brother Micah was holding him just a couple hours after he was born!
Here's Tyler holding Porter earlier today!
He's opened his eyes a few times when I've been there visiting, he is so sweet.
Oh and he has red hair! I'm so happy :] Meghann has gorgeous red hair so I'm hoping Porter will keep his red hair to be like his Mommy!
