[ new pics by Lauren of course! ]

I love these pictures Lauren took of our family and have wanted to post them for a while now, but am just now getting around to it. I kept forgetting to get them off of her computer, but finally remembered this weekend. My sister is becoming quite the photographer! She keeps getting better and better each time I see her photographs! Thank you so much Lauren for your amazing talent and for being so willing to share it with us!

I love pictures! They capture those wonderful little moments that would otherwise be quickly forgotten. These photos remind me of what's most important in life... family! When life gets overwhelming and crazy... all I have to do is look at my husband and daughter and I'm reminded how blessed I truly am to have them in my life. That's when all those things that I was worried about that I thought were too big to deal with, really are small in comparison.

I am so thankful for the knowledge of the gospel that helps me to keep things in perspective. With Heavenly Father's help I know that I can make it through anything. I guess this is taking a little twist from what I started to post about, but I've been thinking a lot about this lately since I've been feeling so sick with this pregnancy. I'm realizing that Heavenly Father knows that I'm trying to do my best in spite of feeling so awful and that He'll make up for where I fall short.

Well, I hope you enjoy the photos! I also hope all is going well for you and your families! Until next time... have a wonderful day!
