Picture Nazi

*Warning..... Start from the bottom of this post, it's backwards, and I don't have the time to switch it (see previous post).*

Kael and his Great Grandma Alice.
Poor grandma can't remember anybody's name, but she did remember Kael's name the whole time we were there. :)
Such a beautiful Temple

We took the opportunity to go to the Las Vegas Temple while we were there. Oh my gosh. The celestial room glows when the light comes thru the windows at just the right time. It seriously took my breath away when I walked in.
Driving the big boy car

Kids took turns playing in the leaves

I guess I know what Kael is getting for Christmas. He sat in this toy car for so hours. He loved it!
We got to ride it Talon's cool dune buggie. I think that's what it was. It was freakin fast. no joke I about peed my pants.

It was really loud while they were playing games so Chase took a nap with Kael in the grass.

This is also for all yall texas family who wasn't there this year in Vegas with us. Just wanted you to see everybody and how much they've grown. It was so empty with out. Loves.

Cynthia and Amber this is for you.
Kael loves his bath time and now he has fun toys to make it even more fun. Thanks. Miss you guys. Loves from Kael.
He crashed the moment he was buckled in to go home. What a good first birthday.
no clothes, surrounded by toys.... thats the life for me

time to clean up
ramped it off the cake... wow check out that air.

He found his car candle and decided it needed a drive. He he, such a boy.

The first bite
He didn't really like us singing to him
He got so many gifts. Thank you everyone who got him stuff. He loves it all.

Kael didn't like his clothes. Ha, ha. He would throw them anytime we would put them on his lap. Silly boy has never like those confining things.

So I've always known that I'm a picture freak. I have wanted a camera since I was little but wasn't aloud to have one until I was 12. My mom was smart and didn't want me wasting film. Cause you know back in the old days you actually had to by film and wait to see what your pictures looked like, and if they turned out. I remember the year I got my camera I would set up my barbies, yes I played with barbies when I was twelve, and then take their picture. I would make my family 'smile' and 'say cheese' too. It was this ghetto little box camera that you had to manually load and I remember it was a deep purple too. But I loved it and I love taking pictures. My next few cameras were 35mm and a little more high tech. (no manual turning required) Then the best invention ever!! Enter the digital camera. I think this is the coolest thing ever. No more waiting to see your pictures. So I get mine and I had the thing It was a pink kodak. My best friend. Enter the digital SLR!! Dun du da dun! I gotta have one. hum.... crap.... no money. So I hold off and keep using my pretty pink camera that I'm pretty sure I've had for like five years. I told you it was my best friend. Well it finally took a crap recently and my sweet hubby let me buy my sweet Canon Rebel XSi DIGITAL SLR camera. Whoop whoop. Hello new best friend. I did take two years of photography in high school and a semester of it in college. But I'm no expert photographer. I don't consider myself educated in the subject either. I just love love love taking pictures. So now that you know my silly story consider this my formal apology for the over load of picture taking. Over the past week and a half, no wait it was only on the weekends so technically only five days, I have managed to take 360 pictures. Yeah. Call that an accomplishment? I do. Holy crap. Was the camera glued to my face? Ha, ha. Well I'm not going to show you all 360 but I probably will have a lot to show you so...... Sorry and enjoy.

Sheesh sorry about your bad luck- mine must have rubbed off. It's looking more and more like we'll be in the same boat as you guys, since Trevor is still jobless after over two months. What the heck happened to the world?? We're not supposed to have to do this!!

Well i am so glad Kael had such a good birthday! We really missed being there! I can't wait to see you guys in less than a week for 3 weeks! I am happy he liked his bath toys, and Mom totally loved that dino flash light, she loved it so much she recorded it's noises on her phone! So Funny!
