Good-bye Mr. "bink-d"

So my little baby is growing up. I knew it was time to let Mr. "Bink-D" go when I would hear him wander the house calling out for him. "Bink-D" are you" he would say looking everywhere and not knowing that when he wasn't looking I had taken it and hidden it. So I decided to do the clip the end thing. Well the first time I did it he looked at it funny, but just put it in his mouth and didn't care. The next day it got clipped a little more. He looked a little more confused, stuck his finger inside the silicone and walked around with it on his finger for a while then put it back into his mouth. The next day was the sad day:( It got clipped again. This time he could only hold on to it with his teeth. He kept telling me "uh - oh mom boken". So I would say "OOH gross lets throw it away" NOOOOO MOM!! So two days ago it just disappeared! I thought it would be hard when he went to bed. He keeps asking me about it when he goes to bed or for a nap, but I just tell him it is yucky and broken and it is all gone. He cries for a few minutes, but it is getting better every day. He hasn't even asked for it today. It was a lot easier than I had anticipated. My Baby Boy is Growing Up:( He sure looks a lot better without it in his mouth and we can understand what he says a lot better too!:)

I guess he will just suck his lips now.

this is where it was the last time I saw it.

This is what it looked like the last time Kody saw it.

GOOD BYE "Mr Bink-D"

Food Storage

So I was Blog Surfing tonight just trying to get caught up on what everyone was up to and my friend Jocelyn McClellan had a great food storage post on her blog. This lady from Utah has a business helping people get their food storage where it should be for as little as possible. Go check out her blog. or She has a couple videos on there that were very informative and you can sign up to be on her mailing list to know when and where the best deals are that week. What a great idea! Thanks Jocelyn!

WPPI in Vegas

I am so excited to share with you the fun photos we got to take at WPPI in Vegas. What is WPPI - Well I am so excited you asked because it was so amazing. Imagine yourself at a sports arena and all the fans. Well imagine all of the fans with Cameras!!! That is the best way for me to describe how many people were there learning and experiencing more about photography. We were in classes from 8 am until 10 pm for 3 days. The first day we were there we had the opportunity to take pictures of some beautiful models at the Red Rocks in Vegas. One of Kellee Smith's photographer friends set up the event. Ryan Christenson with Innovative Photography. It was such a beautiful place and the models were amazing.

Just a little over a month to go and Richard and Katie will be MARRIED! My parents will finally be "Empty Nesters" I think my mom is a little sad because her "FAVORITE" child will be leaving her. I am sure he will miss her as much as she will miss him. Hopefully Katie can loosen those apron strings just a bit!!LOL!! Good Luck Katie and Richard!! Can't wait to see you at the end of the month!!
