Bedroom Makeover

Super Bruce

Trudy (Ethen's mom) Made this for us. It is beautiful! I just love it!

Tierssa, Trudy, David, and I did all the work! It was just plain white walls and a closet. So we tore down the closet and added the wall unit. We love it! Our room is so tiny and this made all the difference. Thanks so much for all the help Johnson Family!!! Love you guys!

What's New

I couldn't let 2 years go by with out posting something. Life has been so amazing. We are so blessed. Here is an update on our life.

We bought two puppies. Bruce and Molly. We have had them for a little over a year now. We unfortunately had to get ride of Molly. This is a picture of Brucey Baby. We love his so much.He is so mellow and loves to lick Toby and love on him.

Toby cuddling up next to his buddy Bruce.

Our little tree climber.

Toby's best friend Olivia. They are so cute and play everyday.

This is Miss Molly. We miss her so much but are glad that she has a good home with a loving family.

We bought a house!!! We now live in a cute hill billy town called Wellsville. Just south of Logan. We love it here. We have a nice cozy home and lots of land to play on. 

Toby can ride a bike with out training wheels. He is such a cool kid.

We went to a demo derby for Toby's 5th birthday. So hill billy of us...

Today the photo assignment is NEW. Of course I wanted to take a picture of sweet little baby hands, but I don't really have that option lying around the house....
One of my religious beliefs, that I TRULY live by, is that we should always bribe our children. Miracles do happen when we bribe. Like getting your so crazy active kid to sit still during pre-school. So I bribed him with these toys. They are NEW and very loved!
Since I am taking this class to take better pictures of my moving Toby, I thought I should have him in the pictures and not just the toys. Plus he's stinkin' cute and really helps the pictures look good.
Also, today I just played with the settings. I didn't go by any rules I just wanted to try them all out. I didn't really care for the way these settings. I do love how cute my kid looks though!

I am taking an online photo class from the super talented Beth Vermillion! The FIRST assignment is OLD. Ethen and I kind of collect hymnals. Old and new, different religious ones, anything we can find really. So these are pages from a Methodist Church Hymnal. It was published around the 1940's. Each copy was only 30 cents. I love this hymnal and the stage of life that it is in. A little torn, taped, bent, and falling apart, yet still beautiful.
Here is a link to the photo class:
