My little DIVA

I was going through my camera and found these pictures of BROOKLYN. They made me smile and gave me a chance to really think about her for a minute and how blessed we are to have her in our family. First as you can see by the pictures that Brooklyn loves to look glamorous. She loves bling as you can tell by the hat and jacket jewel. This is one of her favorite jackets because of course it is hot pink fur! She is no shrinking wallflower! Brooklyn loves to pose for pictures. She is our own little "top model". Her smile is so adorable and I always want to stick my finger in her dimples. As you can see she doesn't take a single bad picture. Brooklyn is a middle child and so she struggles to find her way with her older and younger sisters. She is also very sensitive and will cry at the drop of a hat if she thinks you are upset or angry with her. Nat and I have struggled recently because she also tends to cry when she doesn't get her way. With those two combinations we usually have 1-2 crying episodes a day. With the bad there is amazing amounts of GOOD. She is so funny and loves to perform. Tonight we were treated to a show about Ariel the Mermaid. Although she intended to take the lead role, she kindly let her older sister Bronwyn have the lead and took the supporting roles of Flounder and the Prince Eric statue. I must say it was the best performance of a statue I have ever seen!

A few weeks ago, we recieved a letter from Ridgeline Elementary that Bronwyn had failed her eye exam and needed to see an optometrist. We questioned her immediately and found out she had been having some problems. We took her for an eye exam and found out one eye was 20/100. She obviously needed some glasses. At first she didn't seem to excited but quickly got into the fun of picking some glasses out. Nat and I got pretty "excited" when we found out our insurance didn't pay for any glasses, contacts, etc. She picked out this cute pair and we think she is more adorable than ever. She can also see much better! When I asked her why she didn't tell me about her eye and that she had failed her eye exam, she thought that I would be mad at her. Go figure!

FALL.....and family pictures

I love this time of year. Some of my favorite colors (orange especially) are abundant and in all their glory during the fall season. The air is crisp and winter is just around the corner. I always love to get pictures done this time of year. We met a friend up here in Traverse Mountain who does wonderful photos and we have used her the last couple of years. Of course having 3 girls I like to coordinate some pretty cute outfits. This year I was inspired to make these cute flower hats. I love hats myself and use to collect quite a few vintage ones. Luckily the girls like to wear hats too! We shot these pictures at a old mill in American Fork that has been turned into an antique store. It was such a fun location and I had many ideas of different shots that I wanted to do. Unfortunately the girls (and Nat) did not want to stay the many hours I would have.:) Oh Well!! I think we were quite successful considering we had a 3 year old among us. The photographer is Robin King, and I highly recommend her. We got a few Christmas card worthy shots. Have you ever seen cuter girls?

The Reed Sisters Halloween Debut

It is hard to believe that Halloween has past us by. Time seems to fly. This year I wanted to do something fun with the girls costumes. They love all things vintage (just like their mother) and we decided to make 50's girls outfits. I even created a little scenario around the costumes. They were making their debut as the singing "Reed Sisters" with their recent top ten hit. We had to make sure they matched and Bronwyn came up with the idea of the "R" on the sweaters. Everyone thought they looked adorable and some friends even snapped a picture or two. I was grateful that the weather was so nice (warm) so they didn't need to wear jackets to cover up their cute costumes. I love the pictures. It is so fun having 3 cute adorable girls.The Reed Sisters Halloween debut
