Fun Times and changes ahead

I know it has been a while since I posted. Life gets busy when you are sick, busy every weekend taking photos, and just having 2 kids!

I LOVE photography. I am so lucky to have found a hobby and joy that is so rewarding to me. The only part I don't like about it . . . taking pictures of my own children. They DO NOT obey me! We have gone out a few times and I was FINALLY able to get some images of them I felt worthy to put up on my wall. I was able to catch a hilarious picture of Clarysa, it truly defines who she really is, ALL SASS!

Cris had a major interview 2 weeks ago. It is for a position in Clearfield for Hill Air Force Base. I have never prayed so hard for something in my life. We have been searching for 1.5 years for a good job for Cris. This one seems to have fallen out of the sky and into our lap. It seems too good to be true and there is this doubt in me that thinks it is. We will find out sometime this week about the position. If we don't hear anything til the end of the week, this week will probably be the longest week of my life.

I have been so BUSY this last month with photography. I have had 3 photo shoots every week and a wedding. The wedding was by far my favorite. You can check out photos here:

I have a video to post of Clarysa and her dance. She is so crazy and pure cuteness (even if she is all sass)! She talks so much and says her prayers. She is OBSESSED with brushing her teeth. Anytime we walk into the bathroom she wants to brush her teeth. She is learning to jump and she is a DAREDEVIL. She thinks she can do everything Cayten can. We are slowly working on potty training. Not because I want to but because she loves to go. She has pooped and peed in the potty a few times every week. It will be nice to be done changing diapers for a very long time. (BTW- to those wondering after my last post No new babies coming to this home for a VERY long time, I will have to suffer amnesia before that one will happen!)

Cayten is growing like a weed. He wishes he could go to school and so I HATE Utah laws because he is late born and there is nothing we can do about it unless we move to Hawaii for a few months and transfer back. He is so smart and already learning to read some words. He loves sports and is very competitive. I can tell he is going to be just like Cris which could be a good thing but not when it comes to telling me everything that happens wrong! We are working on the sucking of the thumb with him. We promised him a new bike if he stopped sucking his thumb so he is working really hard at it. We have tried everything else so far to no avail.

A few weeks ago my kids ended up going through Hands Foot and Mouth disease. It was so miserable for all of us. The kids had blisters on their hands, feet, bums, and in their mouths. Clarysa probably got it the worst. She wouldn't really eat or drink anything and she was in a lot of pain. One of the worst things about this was we were contagious the entire time they had blisters so Cayten didn't get to sing in his primary program. He was so sad and still talks about it. It would have been his first one!

We also just had a scare of the H1N1 (not swine cuz my little sister sells pigs and she hates it when every one calls it that LOL) flu. The little boy I babysit dad got the flu and so I was worried we would get it too but we lucked out and didn't even get a fever.

Cris applied for a job today. Not even 2 hours later he was contacted for an interview this Monday. The job is in Layton so we would have to commute til we could sell our house which wouldn't be for a year and a half. I guess I am getting my hopes up as we don't even know what the pay starts out at or that he will even get the job but we are praying and crossing our fingers!

A few more contagious things . . . These smiles. Such a wonderful thing and you can't help but smile when you look at these faces.
