Nothing like a spur of the moment photo shoot! We got Hailey's hair trimmed and the girl that cut it did it super cute and I knew she'd never hold still long enough for me to do it again, so we headed straight for Kiddie Kandids, and of course they are out of business.  I guess I need to go to the bustling Cache Valley Mall more often.  We called Whimsy Photography and they were able to get us in right away AND it was a lot cheaper than Kiddie Kandids were.  I absolutely fell in love with this studio.  The girl working was excellent and the set up was great.  A 45 minute session, however many pictures we could get in, a free 8X10 and all the copyrights to all the pictures for $79 AND no pressure to buy pictures from them.  We will be going back for all our pictures!  Anyway, here are the results:

You know those times in life when things happen and you can find no logical reason or answer? We do all too well in our family for so many different reasons.  It's at those times that we really, truly have to have faith in Heavenly Father that everything will turn out the way they are supposed to and that we will end up where we are meant to be.

Throughout the last several months, we have been debating back and forth about Xax going back to school, and for some reason we keep putting it off.  Today, after finding out he didn't get the job he applied for at Icon, we finally decided that he will be going back to school as soon as we can get grants and accepted into a school.

It's scary and at the same time extremely exciting.  I am so very proud of him and his determination to go back to school and get his nursing degree.  We are about to embark on a new journey and I know without a doubt we will come out better on the other side.  We would appreciate all your prayers and support during this transition in our lives.  It's not going to be easy, but we know that it's the right choice for our family.
