Our Basketball Nash!

Nash was finally old enough to start playing basketball this year (they start them pretty early in Utah). We loved watching him. He definitely improved quite a bit by the end of the season. He is pretty darn good when he is paying attention, or just when he wants to be. It is usually all or nothing with that kid. Just thought we would share our favorite "highlight" of one of his games. What a cutie! Nash is #5 in the video.

STILL trying, how do they do it??

I have a friend Shelley( who an excellent photographer! I love photography and am always trying to learn more about it. I seem to practice, then get frustrated and stop for a while; then I practice and research online and try again.
I haven't done anything recently mostly because of the weather. I looked at Shelley's blog the other day and loved the pictures of her kids in the snow. So once again I was inspired to TRY again. Today was the most perfect day to head outside. So I got the kids all dressed and ready to go outside. They were disappointed when they saw me take out the camera, and once again they had to be my subjects. But, they were good sports for a short time (with a bribe of candy of coarse).
So this is how they turned out. It can be tricky to get the settings right, but I think they turned out okay. Although it seems that I think they look good and then I come back sometime later and look and wonder why I ever thought they looked good. So here they are, let me know what you think. Thanks again Shelley for being such a great photographer!

One of our boys favorite things to do is to get in the big tub and play with bubbles. They each got bubbles for Christmas so they have been doing it a lot lately. It is so fun for us to see them have so much fun when they do things together. They are such buddies! Just thought we would share. What are your kids favorite things to do together?
