Life is Beautiful- conference edition

Sadly, I have no photos of the crepe feast or the massive fort. But happily I also have no photos of the broken dishes or the 5-star fight the boys had in front of their grandparents…

    The most dominant thing I notice about your life v. mine is just the sheer amount of energy that exists in your family! You pulse with life and interactiveness in a way that is so foreign to me.

    Even growing up in a brood of five kids, we didn’t play or interact like you guys do. So it’s seriously fascinating to see it, and a beautiful thing to behold.

    PS: I always suspected that LBPKS was a righteous cat! 😀

    Your family is so fun and I love the indoor pictures. So funny to see your kitty watching conference too 🙂

    I don’t know what conference is but your family sure makes it look fun! How do you play the rug game? I think we need to try that in my house. 🙂

    Please tell me you weren’t calling me to come over for crepes or I’ll cry!

    Love the picture of you with the kiddies, even if it is a little out of focus.

    And Hans! Wow, what an awesome picture of those beautiful baby blues. I’ll have to show that to someone I know 😉

    Every time I read your blog, I’m convinced I need lots more kids – your family is so much fun! Maybe fighting pictures and broken dishes would bring me back to my senses?

    I love seeing your family in action. (And…hello? Drinking fountain in your house? Genius!) Looks cozy and lovely. Let’s petition for quarterly General Conference, shall we?

    Life is Beautiful — another good Jason Mraz tune. I’m glad to see that your family enjoys the finer points of conference weekend too. After much cajoling, a few years back I was finally able to talk our local public access station into carrying conference so that we can watch it on TV. I do love it!

    I love your blog, Michelle! I can’t believe how much older everyone looks besides you and Eric! I’m amazed at how youthful you two are while raising 6 children.

    Also, your pictures are so incredible! Could we commission you to do a photo shoot for us sometime? Sean’s side of the family is in desperate need of an up to date family picture. I love the candid and vibrant feel of your photography.
