Because they are just so cute...

Well that and I wanted to try out using Photobucket to upload photos.  I've been editing a bunch of photos from Olea & Adam's photoshoot and wanted to try this upload really quick before I pass out from exhaustion.

Here goes nothin'!

And here's the Flickr version: Notable size difference & mystery solved. Looks like I'll be using Photobucket a bit more often!

Happy Anniversary Olea and Adam




Today is Olea & Adam's 5th wedding anniversary.  They let me take a bunch of photos of them.  Aren't they just the cutest?!?

What do you do on a cold Winter day?




You make cake!

What do you do when mom is on a diet and doesn't want to subject herself to temptation stronger than she can handle?  

You make cake in a cup!


I found this recipe and modified it because I have this problem where I never think a recipe is good enough as is.  Also because I don't have any cocoa powder!

I omitted the afore mentioned cocoa and added extra vanilla, cinnamon, and raisins.  I also added about a tablespoon of oatmeal.  Next time I am going to try it without the oil and use applesauce instead.  I will also add more spices because I'm a spice cake nut!  Maybe even grate in a baby carrot or two.  I think it will be divine.

For a cake cooked in the microwave, I was really impressed how quick, easy and yummy it tasted.  That's a good recipe to keep around when you're jonesing for some cake!

Not to be forgotten, this little apple eating ragamuffin wanted me to take pictures of him.  He's so cute and scrubby.  Someone needs to throw him in a bathtub!

My Beautiful Grandma

I wish I had a digital copy of a picture of my grandma Allen (my dad's mom) when she was young.  I don't think I have any, actually.  She was such a beauty.  She still is such a beauty.  I hope I age half as gracefully as she has.

I was going through some shots from this summer's reunion in Moab, UT and found these two shots.  I hope I can get some better shots of her this summer in Idaho.
