photo shoot!

Well this is a picture over load!!

Brandon meet up with some friends the other night and played some basketball at a church near by, a friend (a wife of one of the guys) and I went a long. when we got there we were like lets take some pictures of William, before we knew it, it was a full blown out photo shoot! I don't think we could have done better if we had actually planned it! We had a camera and a football for a prop and an adorable baby! what more could I have needed? needless to say I think they turned out rather well for the impromptu photo shoot!! There is a ton, I couldn't narrow it down very well!
View discretion is advised, there is some nakedness...

Thanks again sarah! Your the best! It was a lot of fun! We will have to do it again sometime!

family pictures!!

So we took some family photos on Christmas eve, It's never a perfect time to take pictures, having a large family someone is always pregnant just had a baby, or something and not everyone is their ideal weight, for me I will just remember this time as just having a baby and hope that is the only reason I look this large! :)Our first official family photoThey weren't professionally done Obviously, this is just in my parents front room, (before we started taking pictures)
We can never be too serious!
The family! We keep getting bigger and bigger!

we had taken enough serious ones and everyone was ready to either "cheese it" or strike a pose! this is what we came up with! I personally like this one better!

Me and my siblings!
after we are done with family pictures, the five of us are never quite done. I don't know how we all turned out to love the camera so much, it doesn't always love us back! But we always take a million pictures after the "family pictures are done" these are a few.

It's not fair when one person is "tanning" and the others aren't it turns out making us all look pasty white, when really Mallory is just so much tanner then the average person in December! (her boy friend is coming home this week from his mission what do you expect!)

Got ta love it! I love my family they are so much fun! Christmas was with my family this year and we were pretty much together for two days straight hanging out and eating like crazy! It was a lot of fun!


William was blessed on December 7th, and people that are reading this and are offended that they didn't get invited SORRY! It's a long story but it was a last minute thing and we didn't have time to tell even Brandon's Brothers that live in northern Utah, so don't be offended.

It went really well, Brandon gave a beautiful blessing and as always William was SO good, he was wide awake during the whole thing just looking around and didn't make a peep. HE IS SUCH A GOOD BABY! at times I feel guilty for how good he is!


How stinkin' cute is he!? The outfit was given to us by Brandon's mom, thanks Mom, it looked really good on him!

Baby Jesus

So a couple weeks ago Brandon and I were asked to be Mary and Joseph in the nativity at Tuachan one night, and of coarse that would make William the baby Jesus. It was a lot of fun, freezing but a lot of fun! How many people can say their son was baby Jesus? haha! I got to ride on a donkey too!
During the play, one of my sisters snapped this picture.
Mary, Joesph and the baby Jesus.
me with my fake belly. I was so excited to get rid of my pregnant belly and then I went and had to put on another one, I thought I was done with all that! :)
Joseph holding his son! (Brandon was so good!)
our supporters! Brydee, Corben, and Jay Jay, they came to see their Auntie, Uncle and baby cousin on stage! they had to get all bundled up because it was so cold!

This is my attempt at getting 5 children under 4 to cooperate with me! Brydee was such a helper and held William so well! Beckham is eating m-n-m's and Corben and Jay Jay are being bribed that they can have some too if they smile! We need a few more like Brydee she is such a good girl! This was the best picture I think out of all of them, and trust me there were a lot taken! They are all in matching shirts that I bought about 5 months ago at old navy for 75 cents each! I know right! needless to say I got as many of them that were the right sizes and I could matched all the boys! It was way fun! (and you can't even tell that Williams shirt is really a 6-12 month size! it was the smallest they had!)

My little gangsta

Why is it that the grown up clothes like jeans T-shirts and tennis shoes look so stinking cute when they are bite size! I love it! This was taken a few weeks ago, when William was 3 weeks old. Today he is 5 weeks!

photo shoot

This is the first photo shoot of many more to come I am sure. I have been wanting to take pictues of William in some fall leaves this was my first attempt. I'll have to try again soon before all the leaves are gone.

I tried taking some pictures with Will but they are always cuter with out me in them! This was the only one worth posting. But I do want to get some more of both of us, and with me and Brandon in them too, we will work on that! Maybe I just need a better photographer then my sister. haha

Rolling over already

My son is amazing, He was able to hold his head up from day one, and at four days old he rolled over! Ok, so it was from his stomach to his back but still, what 4 day old baby does that? I thought maybe it was a fluke thing and he would never do it again, but almost a month old now and he continues to do it every time I lay him on his stomach, it's the cutest thing because he is so little and can hold his head up so well!
Brandon and I can't believe how much he has already grown, these were taken when he was 3 1/2 weeks old.
So stinking cute!

And he is so good, I think he is kinda smiling in this pic.

Here is some footage of him rolling over.
