This was my first Smilebox slide show to make and it's only five pages long, and I couldn't figure out how to add pages to last for the entire song. Be sure to listen for the Dixie Chicks when they say "bluebonnets" on the last page of our adventure. (Tip: The last page has a tag that said Adventure 2008.) After that, enjoy the rest of the Chicks' cool tune. If you are an expert at Smilebox, or smart enough to know how to add pages, feel free to leave a comment teaching me your tricks. Thanks!

Those are great pictures. I love how great your family always looks. And you have such a great smile. That really looks like a great place that you found. I had given up on finding a good spot this year but maybe I might have to seek your little spot out and see if I can get a few pics of our family. Hmmm just thinking about the ordeal of getting the kids in and out of the car makes me think that maybe we won't be doing that.

Wow! How beautiful! I would have loved to have snapped some pictures in that field. I also loved the old farm in the background. Those pictures really looked professional. It sure is nice that your kids don't mind all of the photography sessions that you guys have. I love it! My mom was the same way. Always thinking about that "Kodak moment." Great job on the smilebox too! I have never done one of those, but I will have to now.

Very cute pictures, your family is so photogenic!!
Gotta love those bluebonnets! We have to set up a time and go this weekend for ours. I have the perfect dress for Simone! Your pictures look great. I would give Kelly's new camera an A+, as well as A++ for your family being photogenic!

Oh, very cute. I didn't know about the bluebonnet thing; it looks like a fun tradition.

Love it! You are making me homesick for Texas. The wildflowers in spring were one of my favorite things about Texas...especially the bluebonnets. Looks like you are taking full advantage of that new camera. And you are already pros. The lighting is perfect!

{Sigh.}

That is so cool!
Both the photos & scenery AND the smilebox thing... great lighting also!
my fav. photo is the one of you and Kelly together - so cute of both of you!

You did it! That little video scrapbook is darling :)

Those bluebonnet fields remind me of the blueBELL fields in England. They come out in spring also, along with the Oil Seed Rape fields. They are endless fields of brilliant yellow. We have many family photos in both kinds. Ahh, I need to go back to England!!

What a great way to start my day. I love that song and I loved your smile box. Kelly, you looked absolutley beautiful in these pictures as did the entire family. I have to admit that we are not really from Texas because I just could not add another tradition to my life at the moment of taking these blue bonnet pics. I did get Jordan two years ago in them and I do love seeing all the families do it!

Super great pic's. Loving the new camera I see. I had to comment on this one because we saw you guys out on the side of the road that evening. I'm not sure any of those pictures made the slideshow, but it was fun seeing you anyway. Don't you love Smilebox?

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
