Xanders Pirate Birthday!


Xander turned six on September 29th and we had a Pirate Pizza Party at Pizza Hut. We had such a good time complete with swords, bandanna's and who could forget the mustaches!


















It Seriously has been SOOOOOO long!


Tick tock tick tock and my life is just flying by! I wish I would take the extra time to sit down and just post a few images and stories of my family, so that we have something to look back at and remember.

2011 has been full of smiles, trials, and lots of love and I although I don't have the time or energy to recap, I would love to document our little lives. :)

Last week I had one of my friends do our family portraits. It is really hard to push myself ( and Nick) to get them done, but I always feel like if I don't force us to, we would never do it. It's never the right time, I want to be thinner, tanner ,richer...ya know. But I am so glad we did! My kids are as beautiful as ever and I am so very grateful to be their mom!

Happy New Year!

Do not adjust your screen, do not pee your pant, and please do not faint, but after a year hiatus from my sad little family blog I have a new resolution to document and share the stories of my little family with your family.



The Jones family had a very busy very exciting 2010 and 2011 looks even brighter!


Lots of photos to come!

Love the Jones'

WOW!
















Time Flies when you are having fun!
It has been a busy busy couple of months but really that is no excuse to keep my friends and family up to date with our family happenings!
We have so many photos and stories to share! I hope you all notice that I no longer have a 4th of July background for the blog! Yes I said July! I opted for a winter one, although I was more drawn to the Christmas ones. I figure it may just be July again before I get to changing it so I better go with one that can last all winter! And now it it time to change it up again!
With a leap of faith and many prayers to our father in heaven we jumped right in and built the nicest studio this side of Idaho.
With the over whelming success of our first few months it's time to start thinking about a grand opening. Any suggestions as to when? I love that I love my job, my family, and my father in heaven!

Feel free to stop on by! Fun Fun stuff!
Nick is my best friend and partner and I love having him around. We have a new custom frame line called Oooo La La. Stop on in and see them!
Hope you get to see more of me soon. In the mean time here are some random pics of my cute little family!
Love the Jones!

Presenting Little Miss Sassifrass stinkerdoodle Jones


So my little miss started taking dance classes from Wendy and she Loves it so much! We talk about it all day and have to tell her how many days till dance, as she only has it one day a week. Last week I must have missed the memo that their wouldn't be class that day. You should have seen her face when I reached for the door and she realized that no one was there and she wasn't going to get to dance that day. Chin quiver, crocodile tears and erratic gasps for air. ( she almost had me in tears) So I did what any great mom would do and I drove us straight to Walmart to buy back her love! One my little pony, a bowl of mac-n-cheese, and a nap later, I thought or rather hoped that this incident was long forgotten. No such luck. Well tonight she performed and she did so good! I know I am the momma but she was the most beautiful little girl in the whole wide world! AND she is damn good for two :) If I can get this video to work I am so gonna upload it!

Still having problems getting the full video to load....check back soon!

Summer Swim Lessons

So this is the first year that I have ever taken a child to swim lessons. I remember taking them every summer growing up and of course I want my kids to be good swimmers so Xander was finally old enough to go.




He did not want to get in the water. I pratically had to throw him in the first day...and he latched on to a teacher and she had to pack him around the rest of the hour.


The next day I brought my camera and Kynlee. We bought him his "magic" goggles and tada he loved it. We got Kynlee some goggles too. She was SO sad that she wasn't old enough to start swim lessons. It was really hard the first week. She would have done awesome but I didn't want to do the mommy and me class so Kynlee and I just watched.


Here are some of the cute pictures



















Xan didn't pass the first session he took but surprisingly they passed him the second time around!







Way to go Xander!!!
