Family Time

For Christmas Kip and I bought my family a photo session with our good friend Lyndzee Ellsworth. We have not had family pictures in quite a while so we figured this would be the perfect gift.
We had a great time together down at the beach, it was such a blast just playing together and having Lyndzee capture the it. This was one of the first times that Kipper actually enjoyed getting photo's taken, you might see why in the pictures that follow.
I just want to also take this time to let all of you in the Internet world know that I LOVE MY FAMILY, we are nothing close to perfect, actually we are quite imperfect and that is what I love so much about us! I love all of the things that we have been through together, the rough spots that we have had to work together to smooth out. I love that we all started together at such a humble beginning and have just worked so hard as a family to get where we are today. I love the examples my parents are and have been to me and all of us kids. They are some of the hardest working people I know! I truly know that I can thank them for my work ethic and the success I have had in my life. One of the first things I think of when I think of my parents is their love for the gospel. Both of my parents are converts to the church and since they have found this gospel the have hung onto it with a death grip. They love the lord so much and are such active members of their ward. They have always been in leadership positions for as long as I can remember. I just feel so blessed to have been raised by such amazing individuals. I Love every single member of my family for who they are, with all the blemishes and perfections that come along with them. My life has been so blessed by each person that appears in these photos. Thank you family for all of your love and support! I would not be who I am today without even one of you. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

Me Mama and Me Papa!

Us three girls. We are so, so, so close! I think it is not even normal how close the three of us are. I just love my mom and my sister so much and look up to each of them more than they will ever understand. They are both the mothers and wives that I pray to become! I am so grateful for their pure love for me. I just know that no matter what happens in any of our lives, our bonds will never ever be broken.

The boys, they all crack me up so much when they are together. I would have to say, I have a silly family and I LOVE IT! I'm so happy that Kipper is a part of our family, my dad and brother just love him to death!

For all of you out there that do not think my sis and I look much alike, I sure think we do here. I'm the blond white one and she is the brown brown one. But I think there are for sure times in life where we look like sisters. I sure am lucky to have her!

My little Moosey, she is totally my little buddy. I really think her and I have a special relationship. I am so blessed to be her Ra Ra. She brings so much joy to my life!

The rest are of me and my BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD, My Kipper! We have so much fun together, I gotta tell ya!
