i am alive

Even though I don't feel like I am....I am. I've been taking care of my mother (who broke her foot and then four days later broke her arm) and my grandmother (who has Alzheimer). And then on top of that I am trying to be good mother, who at this moment doesn't feel like it. Oh yeah I also play a role of a wife. So in a nutshell I have been a little crazy.
I was able to get away ( I say get away because I've been staying at my mom's this whole time and will continue to do so for at least the next 3-8 weeks). As I was saying that I was able to get away for a few hours and go home. And what do I do when I go home......clean. Oh on some photos. Which came out so great. Last weekend I was able to do a photo shoot with Ryan and Taryn McCook. Their little boy is so cute. I just love his big cheeks. Here is just a little sneak peak of them because I still have some to come.

keeping up with the jones

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking the Jones family pictures. Their little boys are so cute! Amber wanted something urban, so we headed to down town Pomona. You gotta love the destressed looked.

were back....from seattle

I'm so sad that our trip is over. I had such a blast. There is no better therapy then a trip away from your day to day life. I'm still on a little happy high. It's what I needed.

Well this is our first picture taken (my me) in front of the Seattle Temple. Isn't great that I put ourselfs to be in front of the temple so you can see that we are at the temple. Yah, good one Chelsea.

We pretty much spent all day there. So on Saturday we went to ........

That's right Pikes Market and I LOVED it!

Ok this picture is funny. Two reasons. One were totally out of focus. 2nd you see Landon and I looking down at the fish's tail. Well that's because just as we were about to take the picture some homeless guy walks up to us and trys to be in our picture. So that is my "what the heck are you doing, were trying to take a picture here and don't touch the fish" smile.

Oh so sexy!


One of my favorite things that we did at the market was eat EVERYTHING!! So this is at some pastry place that was to die for.


So proud of my husband. I have to give credit to him on this picture. He took it (under my instructions). I like so much I think I want to blow it up and hang it in my kitchen.

So here we are in front of the first Starbucks store. If you read carefully you can see it written on the window. Why I took I picture here, I don't know. It's not like I drink coffee. However, they have some mean hot chocolate there.

I'm so proud of my sister-n-law, she's special. That's how she takes pictures.

And thats all of us...minus the parents

So after the market we headed down to the Space Needle. Were so cheap we had Scott take our picture in front of this backdrop with my camera so we didn't have to buy the one they make you pay for. However, it would have been nicer if we looked at the camera. DSC_0177 lux burn

It was so cold up there and windy

And this was the great mormon van we drove all over seattle in. I'm so scared that that is my future car.

And then we headed to the Crab Pot.

Whats so cool is that whatever you order they come and dump it on the table. No plate. Just a wood block and a hammer to crack open your crab. It was pretty good.

Believe it or not I even squeezed in a photo shoot

I just have to say that I really have the best in-laws around. They may be a little on the crazy side, but thats what makes them so lovable. I had a blast you guys, thanks!
