Fall Family Pictures

Instead of paying for school pictures we decided to get family pictures taken instead, we went to FotoFly again and this was our worst experience so far but there were still some cute pictures.

September 2012

 We let the chickens out in the fall to eat all the leftover stuff out of the garden, Sophia mastered catching them by their tails.

 Hiking on the Nebo loop

 Family picture time at Payson Lake (and yes that would be sweet Sophia trying to attack our new camera…)

 At Devil’s Kitchen on the loop also.

 Rob got the kids a little 4-wheeler, they are still mastering driving it.

 Sophia being super safe…

 Sophia LOVES her bottles.

 At the dinosaur museum, super glad we have passes to Thanksgiving Point so we can enjoy all the fun when its not crowded.

 Mystery dinner, you just never know what will come on your plate.

 And you might only get a knife to eat with!

Meeting a new goat at Great-Grandpa Haslam’s farm.

January 2012

We had a ha’bee’ birthday party for our Sophia, we are so thankful for all our friends and relatives who came to share her special day with her.

 Taking a group picture is always a struggle.

 All dolled up for her birthday photo shoot.

 At the aquarium (Notice the cast, Zander broke his leg before Christmas but it took awhile for the break to be confirmed.  After multiple doctor visits he felt a lot better once it was in a cast.)

 Sophie loves the fish

 She has beautiful eyes!

 Not excited to be getting his cast off.

 In the tub.
