To the World you are just a mother, to your Kids you are the World

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Motherhood.... The most difficult and yet most rewarding experience. To know of the responsibilties we have to rear our children in these trying times, to have our homes a safe haven from the world, a place where they feel loved and protected. To be an example in the things that we do and don't do. Always hoping we are doing right by them and hoping they will grow to be better than we are. I feel so blessed to have 3 very beautiful girls that keep me on my toes and bring so much joy in my life.

Not an easy task taking pictures of three little girls by myself. This is as good as it gets. I had a lot of fun playing with their individuals though.

Girls Just Wanna Have FUN!!

So I have decided if the Sun is out then we should be as well!! My housework, unfortunately will still be there when I get back inside. I have to remind myself daily that this is not the time in my life where everything is in order and tidy, but I have little kids that need my much needed love and attention. So I say they can have it. Sorry for all the pics of my girls but they are my life and what I love taking pictures of.

EaSTer DreSSes!!! Oh and MY GirLS

Gramma Wanda...aka Grams

This picture had to be posted for many reasons. Although the lighting was HORRible, the picture is PRICEless. Syd looking up to my Grams...we all do. She is such a great blessing and example to our family. We all want her approval, advice, time and attention..Speaking for my brothers and I even though we are in our 30's (me of course just recently he he) the child in us still comes out when it comes to our Grams. How neat that we argue over who is the favorite, because we all think we are. She makes each of us feel so important to her and has such an endless love. I know that anyone that knows her can say that she has touched their life in some way. Thanks for being you Grams...Love Ya

The FUN of CoLoRIng EGGs

I love this Picture because it says so much about the relationship they have formed already. Syd looks up to Kendyl and they are always curious about what the other is doing. better be a good role model, the pressure is on!!

Syd just woke up before she came outside but was kind enough to let me take a picture.
When I put this pic on my computer I saw that Ash was cutting her first tooth.

Kendyl wanted to just play but I on the other hand wanted some PICS!

Playin' Around

I am kinda into this photo thing lately. I am still trying to learn how to use my camera and its many settings. But I thought these turned out OK and not because I have skill it's mostly because she is so cute.

In Rememberence...Edward J. Ochs

Trav's Grandpa passed away last month. He recieved full military honors, that was really neat to see.

Grammy is given the flag

I thought this was a great pic of Trav and his Mom and siblings

Here's the troops...minus Ash. He has 11 great-grandchildren

Here's To The BIG 3-0

I have been asked if turning 30 was hard for me. I am completely happy with where I am at. Happily married with 3 great girlies! Besides whose counting, in my head I am still in my mid 20's!?
There's a smile for ya. That's what she will do if you tell her to smile big. She's quite literal.
Couldn't leave this one out. Not only is she so cute she is now so big and sitting up!

Let IT Snow...

Whatever Works!?!

What I love most right now is that it is January and I am just posting Halloween!


This is what happens to my baby if left alone with her crazy sisters for 2 minutes too long...she gets decorated!

Sydney as 'Minnie'. Thanks Lyndsey for making such a darling costume!
Ash was a piggy.....because doesn't it make sense to have all your babies use the same costume?!

Ken HAD to be a flower so you guessed it folks I had to make it! I thought it turned out quite well. I did have a little help with the assembling.

Deseret Elk Hunt

Trav's dad drew out on Deseret this year for the Elk hunt and Trav was able to take time to go with him and help in any way he could. They had success as you can see. I know Trav is greatful that he got to experience that with his Dad and I am proud of him for making it such a priority.

They brought the beast home so we could see it and of course Ken was all over it,
while Syd on the other hand not so sure.

Ken wasn't sure about sitting on his head, not because it was a huge animal, not because it was dead, no..she didn't want any blood to get on her. (I don't blame her)

Yeah, Yeah I know where have I been. BUSY is all I can say. Hopefully now I can get back on track. I will probably back track a little because I have some seriously cute pics to show off. I am also thinking of going private so please get me your email address.

Kendyl's Field Trip

Pumpkin Carving

Ken was a trooper and loved helping with the pumpkins. Syd on the other hand...I told her to clean out her pumpkin and she put her hands up like lil miss priss and said 'no mommy dirty'. I said that's ok you can take a bath when you are done. She said,' no mommy cucky'. Wow... she just might be my girly girl.
