Happy Birthday Carson

Carson turned 6th on January 25th. We had a great time celebrating his birthday together with some family friends and then again the next day with friends and cousins for the big Transformer party. The house was quite rowdy for that 1hour and 15 minute party, but we made it! He is still our sweet boy (with an occasional temper)....we are so glad he is in our family!

Mom and Addy takes treats to Kindergarten:

New Rollerblades!

Hi, I got your site off of my friend Karen Rich's. We are in the same ward here in Maryland. I hope you don't mind. As soon as I saw "Pettingill Family" on her blog I had to ask....Trevor, Tyler, and Mindy were in my ward in Boise. Mindy and I were super good friends. We lost touch after her mission and I NEED to find her. I know she got married last June, and I thought they were living in Utah?? I am actually planning our 10 year class reunion and I need her address to mail some info to her. I've already tried emailing her but she hasn't responded. Can you help me?? If so, please email me at: or leave a comment on my blog:
Thanks SO much!!! Tell Mindy I said hello and to email me so that we can get caught up!!! :)

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
