Two month old: blessing day and fun with hats

Its hard to believe that two months has come and gone! This weekend we took some photos. The babies were blessed and it was just a really special time. I feel like these past two month have been a slice of heaven on earth.



















 My sister Lei made those fun hats! My cousins Amy and Margaret made the ones below

Ruby and Goldyn

There is a Perisan saying "Children are the bridge to Heaven."

Amen. 

There is something so beautiful about children and childbirth. Is it that you, as a woman, are creating something? And not just something... but a human. A person. A spirit and body combined to come to earth and to be taught and raised and loved and treasured. Shelby Osmond took these photos. They girls are only THREE DAYS OLD. I am SO happy that they were captured at such a young age. Fresh from Heaven. Every time I look at the photos (which are weekly), I remember everything. Finding out McKay and I were expecting, Then to find out we were having twins. What it felt like to carry them for 37 weeks and the pain and joy at bringing them into this world. 





Shelby not only does lifestyle photography, but she was recently on KSL Studio 5 sharing her tips for home video. I wouldn't call them home videos... what she does is way more than your typical video. Be sure to check it out

In the last 30 days

Time flys when you are having fun. While this pregnancy has been one that makes me progressive more and more tired, we have been making a really big effort to make the most of our remaining time in Utah and without newborns.

I decided to summarize what our little family has been up to this past month. And maybe in another month I will post again. (photos are not in order)

-McKay graduated from BYU's MBA program in Marketing



-Jaedyn completed her first year of dance


-Keo got his first stitches (well, one stitch to be accurate)

-Spent 4 days on a cruise with friends w/o any kids  (Thank you SO MUCH Mom for watching our kids for 3 weeks!!)
-Picked the kids up from the airport after the cruise and spent 5 days at Disneyland




-Went to the Grand Canyon for a day



-Tried to go to Yellowstone (it was closed) so we went to the Grand Tetons instead
-Grew out of half of my maternity clothes

-Packed up our apartment and moved
-Put our Utah home on the market
-Flew to Texas and found a place to live for the next year
-McKay has been catching up on golfing, tennis, and mountain biking

MBASA Closing Social 2014


Deciding to come to the BYU MBA program was a fairly easy choice since McKay had a scholarship. BUT, he got an almost perfect score so we did have some other options. However, as this year winds down, I am just so thankful that we BYU was the right choice for our family. It was one made with prayer and a lot of thinking.


At the end of each year, we have what a Closing Social. The past two years it has been at the Springhaven Cabin. The cabin is seriously gorgeous.

There is a program, dinner, games and then we stay up all night talking, laughing, eating etc. Pretty much just being teenagers again. Last year was my first year. This year is my last year. And I know already that saying goodbye is going to be pretty rough for me to do.








 If I could sum up what I have learned, it is that everyone is beautiful and needs to be loved. I was taught that people have good intentions and that forgiveness is essential to happiness. I also learned how to let others serve me and how to better follow Christ and serve others.



we are both expecting twins, just a month apart

I volunteered to put together a slideshow from the past year.
McKay really helped me fix it because it was a hot mess.

While I get paid for photos, this blog is where I focus on journaling. Please don't judge my work from my posts.
