{The Many Faces of Ash}

This was a deer in the headlights..
This was when I said "Ashton, look at me, I want to take your picture!" He is sick of hearing that.
And this was me trying to get him to smile. I said "show me your teeth!" He showed me his teeth.
Oh man, whatever would we do without little Ashton...

{You Gotta Love Boys}

Dave was looking out the window this evening after the boys came in from playing outside and this is what he saw...
I guess the hitch was too big...but the chain did the job just fine.

Jared is ALL boy!

{Sweet Innocence}

Some days.... after all the chaos and screaming, whining, fighting, and peed underwear....I get a glimpse of sweetness. How lucky am I that I was blessed with this little man to raise..and I realize how quickly they are growing up. So I can take a moment and relish in the stillness of my little Ashton, and just feel so blessed.

{LAst words}

Okay, seriously, this is my last post tonight I PROMISE!! I just need to let anyone out there know that I am really seriously fighting off an urge to go blonde again(not blonde blonde like before, but blond nevertheless) and I think I need some professional help-not just with the dying of the hair, but like mental health professional help. MUST......FIGHT.......THE URGE!! I HATE...let me say it again(and i don't just throw the word HATE around loosely) I strongly despise being brunette. It's not really fair either because I finally go dark and then my freaking roots start coming in really light(light as in dirty blonde) SO crazy and so not fair(yeah I know, life's not fair get over it, right? I know!!) SO right now the only thing stopping me from this transformation is the fact that I refuse to do it myself. My hair is finally pretty dang healthy and getting long and I definately will be doing it gradually. I'm thinkin carmel blonde anyone? I guess I will have to talk to my stylist about all of this...why I am telling this to who knows who reads my clue...where's Angela at 1 am?

{American Idol}

I had the opportunity to shoot some pics backstage at the American Idol review in Provo last night. I was working freelance for a magazine editor ( Darcy Hanson who is such a sweetheart! She was doing a story on American Idol contestant David Osmond and his amazing wife Valerie and needed some pics for the article. It was so amazing to be in the dressing room listening to their story of his journey on AI and the struggles he has faced dealing with MS. They are two very strong and amazing people!! If any of you have been following AI or saw tonight's show, David developed laryngitis on his last day of Hollywood week and didn't make the cut. Since the show was taped back in November, he has been carrying this "secret" around with him all this time unable to tell anyone but his wife and loved ones. His attitude towards it all is so great! He knows that the Lord must have something greater in store for him and he's just moving forward towards bigger and better things. His wife says that AI is very "produced" and that it isn't a talent competition at all, but just a reality show. Personally, I think AI would have just slowed him down, he has this AWESOME talent, not only musically, but all around seems like a great guy! Anyways, it was fun to get out and meet some peeps. Give me a month and I'll post some pics!

Okay I know this post is a little overdue but I am finally bored tonight and have some free time so I figured I better post-plus I have so much to say late at night for some reason! (and I get alot done when Dave is gone!! sorry honey, I love you!!)
I had the priveledge of being the third child of the Kathy and Jed Hanson family and tagging along at the airport to welcome Elder Hanson back from DC. It was SOO emotional and dang Kathy had to keep crying and making me cry, stinkin Kathy and her tears of emotion pulling at my freakin heart strings! Geez Kathy! So we went to the airport and waited...and waited....and hence...THESE photos were born..(warning: some images contain profanity tsk tsk shame on you kaylynn)

YAY for Oprah!! So many words...TOO many words (I spot Heath Ledger among all of the Obama faces..RIP Heath)
And then we waited some more....

Kathy, she doesn't look amused
Silly Grandpa
It was so crazy and intense because his flight was late and so it was like the worst part of the whole 2 years for Kathy and Jed. It was sooo intense!! And then the first glimpse....
