our little family

While visiting Mark's family for Thanksgiving over the weekend, Mark's brother, Aaron, took a few family pictures for us. The last time we had a proper family picture taken was a few years ago. If you look at the pictures in our house there's no indication that Izzy is apart of our family. So we fixed that.

This last one of Izzy is my favorite! She has a funny thing going on with her hair but she is adorable just the same.

the wedding

Here are a few pics from Cam and Rachel's wedding on Nov. 12. It was a really beautiful sealing. And it was especially cool that all of my siblings except little Joe were in the sealing room together. It was a sweet day.

I love having little crafty projects to work on. It makes me happy. Keeps me relaxed. Focused. It can be a small dose of therapy. Mark's cousin once said that craft projects for his wife, Amy, who is super crafty and talented, made her more loving. I totally get that.
So I went into Roberts last night in order to find some paper for my craft night with my mom & sis tonight and this is what I walked out with.

Buying cute paper is addicting! Who knew.

I also really love this video. So true.

Also, I'm just waiting for a few pictures from other people so that I can post more about my crazy family filled week last week. It was fun from beginning to end.

bijou market

I went to the Bijou Market on Saturday. I had so much fun walking around admiring everyone's craftiness. And I found this little gem.

It's made by a lady named Debbie Thompson. Her etsy store name is tom jewelry design.

the best

I know I'm a few weeks behind but I just saw this again and wanted to share.

This is why The Office is the BEST.

Thanks to Forever 21 my sister, my madre and I are all stocked up on fun little accessories. I am a little obsessed with their hair clips at the moment.

now what?

Lately I haven't been feeling 100%. I couldn't put my finger on it for a while but then it occurred to me that my thyroid might be off. I have hypothyroidism that doesn't like to stay balanced. Almost every six months it changes on me. Annoying. So I took myself to the doctor, with my list of annoying little symptoms, and asked for some blood to be drawn. I even asked if they would check my iron because I've been feeling anemic.


I was convinced (strongly convinced) that I would have to change the dose of my meds and be good for another six months. I was wrong. Everything is fine. Iron. Thyroid. All fine. Again, annoying. Something is wrong but I can't put my finger on it. Hopefully I get to the bottom of this soon. I know my husband and children would appreciate having me back.

And so would I.

On another note, does anyone know how I can make my header centered? I've been messing with it but it's just not moving.

halloween '09

a fairy, a baby chick and capt america

my baby chick. people LOVED her costume.

This Halloween was a lot of fun. Our neighborhood is made up of young families and a lot of them went all out with decorations and spook alleys. Unfortunately, my kids were scared by all of that (I think they get that from me!) but it was still fun to walk around and see everything. We went trick or treating with the kid's friends, a family in our ward. I forgot to take pictures of all of them together but I managed to remember to snap a few of my three.
