Some new pictures.





Unfortunately Gabriel was at school that day, but this awesome girl in my ward is a photographer. She offered to show me some tricks with lighting, and she wanted to take pics of Elise. I walked away with some great pictures and a new appreciation for photography! I can't wait to start working with her!

A new, healthier way of living!

We have always wanted to buy one of these awesome blenders, but never had the resources to do so. We are big into eating organic, all natural foods, trying to eliminate as much processed foods out of our diets as possible.
Lately, Mat has been having horrible, painful heartburn that won't go away with tums. He has an appointment with a doctor soon. He thinks a lot of what he has been eating has been contributing to his heartburn. So, we went online and ordered this beauty!

If you don't know a lot about the vitamix, let me give you a brief summary:
It makes soups (yes, it spins THAT fast so the food gets hot enough)
It makes ice cream (yup....ice cream)
It makes dough (then put it in a pan and make bread)
It makes cake batter
It grinds grains into powder
It makes any type of food you want!
You can eat 3 times a day using this vitamix!
It makes applesauce (you just cut the apples and put it straight into the mixer...seeds, stem and all)

That's just a few things it does! I can't wait to use this thing! I can't wait to get back on track with health!
