Christmas


We loved going to the Festival of Trees. Our favorite trees were a tree decorated entirely with candy (of course that was our favorite!) and the Dr. Suess themed tree.

We also enjoyed the lights at Temple Square. However, we went on the coldest night of the year as evidence by Elle's face in her Eskimo coat and the women's gloves that D is wearing because even he was that cold.


Both D and I agree that Christmas morning was our favorite day of 2009. Opening presents with my family and Elle was (excuse the cheesiness) kind of magical. Seeing her eyes open up when she opened up the package fake food that my brother gave her was worth every penny.
There is nothing like celebrating Christmas with children, it's almost like experiencing it for the first time all over again.

Dress up shoes




I sure wish they made some of Elle's shoes in my size. But they look cuter on her anyway.
Today while playing dress up I decided to take some pictures of her little shoes to put in her baby album. I have a picture of the shoes I wore on my wedding day framed and hanging in my closet, who knows maybe one of these pictures will hang in her closet some day.

To You From Her


We have a tradition in our family to go around the table and say what we are thankful for before we eat. It's my favorite tradition that we have. I am so thankful for my friends and family. I consider the people in my life my most prized possessions and I often wonder if they know it. I know I don't express it very well, so luckily Elle made a cute little card to tell you all how thankful we both are for you.

Sorensen Family




It's so much fun to photograph GORGEOUS people! And little B has got to be the happiest baby boy I've ever seen. Not even a peep came out of him during our little photo shoot.

She walks...and steals

video

Elle learned to walk (thanks to Tatum)! We went shopping over the weekend and I guess she REALLY wanted this pair of pants. Every time I set her down she bolted for the door with them in her hand and she thought it was pretty funny. The sales lady at the store on the other hand, DID NOT.

Schultz Family




The Schultz's are one of my favorite little families on the planet! It's impossible not to like these guys, they are the nicest, most hilarious family ever. I love little Boston so much sometimes I forget that he's not actually my child.

Happy Halloween


Elle had a rough Halloween this year, but we tried our best to show her how fun it can be. Cool costumes and free candy, what more could you ask for?
Dwight, from the office, even showed up at my doorstep tonight. Well, it was a seven-year-old version of Dwight with some pretty cool parents because his costume was dead on.


D and Andy even got into the fun and choreographed this dance for work. They went as the Jabbawockeez! In case you can't recognize their sweet dance skills, D is the one on your far left in the front, and Andy is two over from him in the front.

A+D=Elle








We had our family pictures taken this weekend by a very talented friend and photographer, Erin Eichelberger. You know when you find that really great deal on that great pair of jeans and you run out and call all your friends? Well, I feel like Erin is that great pair of jeans.
If you need your fall or holiday family photos taken, I highly recommend her. She's fantastic and affordable. I don't love being in front of the camera, but she made it so fun and easy. I am thrilled with our family photos.

Check her site out here.

Lynda is a make-up artist. You can tell right? She is amazing and the camera loves those gorgeous green eyes of hers...I do too.

Purple Chair





I scored this chair at the DI today for 30 bucks.
And we are working on keeping both shoes on...not going so well.
