New Hat

I love hats, and I just bought a new one- a Harris Tweed driver's cap.

I googled where the tweed was made, (in the Outer Hebrides) and I was amazed at how gorgeous it was there.

This is one of the workshops
Happy New Year!

Beach pictures

Although today is the first day of winter, it is 72 degrees outside, which reminded me that I was going to post beach pictures. :)
One of our family's favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to the beach. This year we went twice a week or more. Often we would meet friends there, and swim and run down the beach for hours. And of course a good tan never hurt either. :)


We all love boogie boarding, and we had many good days for it.

We were getting ready for a jumping picure, but this was so cute of Joshua. :) (second on the right)
Some of our friends live near a lake, so the next few pictures were taken there
Daniel, Ben, and Isaac at the lake

I stood in a boat nearby while taking pictures of everyone jumping off the diving board.

Tuck your head in, Daniel!

I love this picture, it looks like Ben is flying :)

This is watermellon we grew in our garden this year.

The pyramid crumbled right before Joy stood up, but it was fun anyway, despite the temporary pain. :)

Mostly a random picture of my friend, Olivia and I at a pool party this summer

We found this starfish washed up on the beach. After we all enjoyed looking at it, we put it back in, since it was alive

Hope ya'll enjoyed the pictures, and Merry Christmas!

Barn Dance

In November we went to another barn dance hosted by the Alexander family. We all had such a great time, and agreed it was the most fun yet. :)
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the actual dancing, because I did all but one dance, which isn't all that unfortunate, I had a great time!
 These are pictures from the obstacle course that was set up.

Blessing Ceremony

Two weeks ago I attended the blessing ceremony of my friend, Rachel.
Kendal (my oldest sister) was part of the worship team for the event, so I came early and was able to photograph some of the happenings.

My friend, Cailin was the hairstylist and official photographer. She is very talented at both! (this is my friend Anna Marie to the right)

Sophia entertained us with interesting snippets while I sat on the counter taking pictures and Cailin worked on Rachel's hair. Sophia played "Mary Did You Know" on her harp for the ceremony.

 Rachel and I had a blast the day before decorating the church, and then decorating these cupcakes while watching Night at the Museum 2.

                                                          Rachel was soooo gorgeous!


                 Adelaide, me, Rachel, Hannah Grace, Morgan, and Cailin after the ceremony (Morgan also played her harp for the ceremony)
                                                              Cailin, you're the best :)
