Beautiful Paigey Girl

For Paige's baptism, we wanted to have some pictures done to make up into invitations and to document this cool event in Paige's life. I had my friend (and favorite stylist) Chelsea come over and do her hair for me.

Chelsea a gifted stylist and made an already gorgeous girl... look stunning.

My friend Jenna from Jameson photography came and took all the pictures for us. She did an amazing job.

This amazing dress was made by my mom.

She took this dress (my old wedding dress) - I ripped it apart and shipped it to Utah. She drew a few sketches and came up with this gorgeous dress.

It fits her perfectly!

Doesn't her hair look amazing? People pay good money and spend hours in the salon for that kind of  coloring.

I love the temple grounds too - aren't they amazing?

It's like a storybook setting for a beautiful princess.

I love all the shots she took that weren't straight on, but show her personality.

look at those gorgeous eyes.

She is wearing the necklace and bracelet that Jason gave me for our wedding day. 

The earrings she made. They are buttons that we clipped the shanks off of and glued clip-ons too.

There was a wedding party and family that Jenna had to maneuver around. Paige is actually strategically placed to block out a little family.

I can't believe my baby is almost 8! Time flies when your having fun!

We love dogs (or just dog food)... and snake, oh my

Hi Abbey... whatcha doin? (notice she is covered in mud from spending time in my back yard - if there is dirt/mud her tracking device goes off full force)

ummm... don't mind me mom, I got a hankerin' for a little puppy chow.

Yep. That hits the spot every time. It tastes so much better on your hands and knees. 
Piper's looking at me like, "So can I have Abbey's food since she's eating mine?" Keep in mind that usually Abbey will shut the laundry room door first so I won't bug her or make her stop eating dog food.

Paige would gladly trade almost anything for a puppy. 

If she had her way she would fill up our entire back yard with nothing but pups.

ooohhh... how did my daughters turn out to be such animal lovers?

Oh, maybe it is their dad fault, this is his new pet, "Sam Boba-fett Buchanan" the ball python snake. It's just a small thing, maybe 2 feet long. We watched it eat it's first mouse the other day, it was disturbing and so mesmerizing at the same time.
