Wow Kelly- your family looks awesome!! Nice work Gabby! I loved them all. Where did you take them? Lindsey is looking so "miss teen" and really skinny these days! Very flattering pictures for all of you.
Kelly said…
Hi, Holly. These were taken at a park in Austin, off of MoPac, but I can't remember the name of it.

Those pictures look so great, what a handsome family! I love the black clothing in contrast with the outdoor setting. It is such a nice effect. The kids look like models. Gabby is talented with her composition.
Those pictures are awesome! Y'all look wonderful and I love the colors. Gabby did a great job capturing your family. Lindsey looks beautiful and so grown up! I need to come visit the rest of the girls sometime. Maybe I'll chaperone a tri-stake dance....?

Y'all look fantastic! Black and denim is one of my favorites for family pictures because it's so classic and photographs really well with outdoor backgrounds.
Great family pictures, Kelly. You look beautiful--that hair style you're sporting looks fabulous on you!

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Buttery Pie Crust

Pie crust 101
Get a cold stick of butter, cut it into sixteen pieces. Put some ice cubes into a measuring cup with water to get it cold. Measure 1-1/4 cups flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Remove ice cubes (and excess water) to measure to 1/4 cup ice cold water. Add butter, flour, and salt into food processor and pulse until it is all mixed into fine, crumbled, and loose pieces. Slowly pour the cold water in until it turns into a big ball. Take it all out and put into a gallon sized zippered plastic bag, pressing dough to form a thick, slightly flattened disc, that will be rolled out later. Refrigerate for approximately an hour. I like to use a mat for rolling out my pie dough, although I have made a ton of pie crusts directly on a clean and floured countertop surface.
Sprinkle flour over the surface, and take the chilled dough from the refrigerator and place in the center of floured surface.
Add additional flour to the top of the dough.
Press the dough down to flatten it a bit before usin…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
