Oh yes...We lived there!

Welcome to Amargosa Valley, Nevada!  Since we only had a few visitors in the two years we lived there...I thought I would show everyone our stomping grounds out in the desert! Don't worry...the "Cherry Patch" brothel was the closest landmark to our house. I didn't even know what a brothel was until I moved there. The vast desert landscape was the scenery out my family room and continued for the next 100 miles or so. The "Fort Amargosa" did have some amazing greasy cheese fries and was always good for some interesting people watching! :) 
We honestly do miss it though! Thanks for some great memories "Allagosa"!

Snow Angel



What is all this stuff? Bella didn't quite know what to do when standing in snow for the first time. She sat there stiff for 5 min. while I took pictures. She is wearing a sweater that was mine when I was her age. I honestly hope she does not grow out of it cause I think she looks so cute in it! :)

Fairy Fun

















This was the best party I have ever thrown! I've pretty much been in love with fairies for the past 2 years now...and I don't know if it will ever go away...so Bella's 1st birthday party theme came as no surprise!  Luckily I have a couple years to come up with cute themes until she wants some hideous McDonalds playland birthday (don't worry...that was my 5 year old birthday party theme).  Anyway, all the little girls came decked out in fairy attire and they all looked so adorable! I hope all the moms didn't mind me putting fairy tatoos on their little ones :), because they all looked so cute! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!

Our Little Family

Our first blog post!



This could possibly been the most fun time we had taking family pictures! These were taken by my darling friend (not to mention college roommate) Becky Kimball.  We went up to Sundance during the Christmas season and it was such a fun cozy atmosphere to take family pics. We just kept laughing at our beautiful baby girl and all her hilarious faces. She was cracking us all up! I felt like a horrible mother though, putting Bella in a short sleeve blouse. I did have a blanket to wrap her up in between shots, but her nose was bright red at the end of the shoot.  I can't wait to get a house to blow up some of these fun pictures. Thanks Becky!!!
