Jr Jazz comes to an end.........

If you ask Nate if he got his Eagle he will tell you no but that he did play more basketball than probablly any other teenager you know. So it is no surprise that our boys would play. But it took a lot of convincing to get them to play. Once they got the ball in their hand it was instant love & that made Nate very happy.
There is nothing more fun than watching 3rd grade boys take on basketball for the first time. McKay had a great season of a lot of laughs, learning, & a wonderful and patient coach. For Taylor's team most of them had played last year but there were 2 boys from Thailand who hand never seen a basketball & so I'm not sure which was funnier, them or the 3rd grade boys.
Taylor with his caoch (George Richards)

Taylor with his team. We had to beg Taylor to play basketball. He loved it & was a top scorer!

Taylor was always having a great time.

I'm not sure if Taylor got sweatier in basketball or football?

McKay with his coach (Tim Jackson) getting ready to start the game. McKay fell in love with basketball & has decided that he wants to play at Wake Forest. He even had his retainer made black with gold writing for Wake Forest.

McKay was the top rebounder every game!

He played great defense. It helps when you are so tall.

Nice game face.

Always concentrating.

Get it McKay!
I hate when things so fun come to an end. It was a great season and both our boys learned so much. Jr Jazz is a great program. They also got to go to a Jazz game which they had a blast at. Thank you so much to 2 very wonderful coaches, Tim Jackson & George Richards. Now we wait for football to start up in a couple of months.

Preparing a Temple of the Lord.....

For the last 2 months I have had the blessing of working at the Draper Utah Temple. During this time we have been busy with the open house & today we started preparing for the dedication. I have never realized what it truly takes to run a Temple. It is so well organized down to the littlest detail. It is hard to think that what I am doing as work when I am in our Father's House each day. I just cannot descirbe how truly blessed I feel.

Another baby!!!!!!!!!

My little sister is such an amazing mother. She does a celebration everyday with her kids for something. She makes the funnest arts projects with them. She is just the mom that every child dreams of having. Her kids are 5 & 3. We were so excited to find out that in October they will be adding to their family. It is so great to have a baby in the family again. We cannot wait.
Sara you are such a great example to me & I love you!

Taylor gets a part.........

We got a call yesterday from the Taylor's agent that he got a part in an up coming LDS Church production called "The Story Lives Here". He will be in the studio all day a week from tomorrow to film. He is excited because it is set in the late 1890's & that is the time period he is studying in school right now.

This beautiful couple will be adding to their family in October! They are 2 of the most stunning people I have ever met so I can only imagne how stunning this baby will look.
Paul and Kami we are so thrilled for you guys & we love you so much! We are a little sad that most likely you will not be living in Utah when the baby comes but thank goodness for air travel & that law school is quick! We cannot wait to meet the newest Smith:)

Need a great photographer?

With Eliza & Taylor working with United Talent Group we have had some fun opportunities. One was working with a fabulous photographer who did their headshots. Even though McKay has no interest in acting or singing she did get him to do some shots for her. I love this picture. McKay has eyes that often get him out of trouble. We have become dear friends with Marcel. She is so talented. If you are ever looking for a photographer I highly recommend her & so does our kids agency.

Cherry Hill.........

Oh summer time fun at Cherry Hill.....need I say more? It has been 3 years since we have had season passes to Cherry Hill so we were so thrilled to get passes from Nate's parents for Christmas this year. Now if summer would just get here! We just love being at Cherry Hill and being lazy in the sun. Our kids think they are fish any time they are around water. Oh what wonderful memories! We are anxious to make many more!
