This is Aaron Jr all dressed up for church. This was the day of the Primary Program at church. Aaron had a speaking part and everything. He said: 'I know that Heavenly Father loves me because my mom loves me. They gave him the first part and he was supposed to come up with the because part... I loved that he came up with 'because my mom loves me' as a way of knowing that Heavenly Father loves him. It was so sweet.
Isaac, Christa, Malia, Steve (Aaron's brother)
In October, Christa asked me to take their family photos. Actually she asked me months ago, but it never seemed to work out. So, we went to Wheeler Farm in Salt Lake and I took some family photos for them. This one is my favorite of the family photos. It is so sweet.
Aaron Jr, Leslie, Laura
This is my friend Laura. She was in town for a few days and I was so grateful to her for sharing some of her limited time with us. Laura is the friend who invited Aaron Jr and me to stay in her hotel with her in Hawaii when she was there on business last year. We had a blast. She is a great friend.
This is my friend Chandra. This was her last trip to Utah before moving from Colorado to Hawaii. I will miss having her come visit in Utah as often as she has in the past. I guess I will have to plan a trip to Hawaii. :) She is a great friend.
This is Aaron Jr asleep in bed. Each night before bed, he take the things he has been somewhat obsessed with that day and puts it safely in his room somewhere. In the photo below, you will see an example of just one night. He may look peaceful in the sleeping photo, but he stresses and worries over his 'stuff'. And it is not always the same things that he obsesses over each day... some things might change daily, some weekly.
He even took a water bottle that had lots of water in it and then took other empty water bottles and filled them each up just a little with the fuller water bottle then lined them up in his room. He cracks me up.
Poor Aaron, I forgot to put a towel around him to catch the falling hair, so towards the end of me cutting his hair, he was so itchy... it was driving him crazy. I can imagine.
My sweet and handsome boy.
