Mom, take a picture of this one!

Every time Braden thinks he is wearing "cool" clothes he asks me to take a picture. Nikki likes to do whatever Braden does lately. Here are a few days worth of pictures.

I have taught Sunbeams for so long. I got to sub this Sunday and I loved it. I think they are the most fun age to teach. They always have so much fun and say the cutest things.

Jessie gymnastics picture day

Jessie had such an amazing first season of competitive gymnastics.  We had so much fun watching her and cheering her on.  Very proud of our little gymnast!

Braden's Mr. Potato Head

Braden went to Jett's birthday party and it was a Toy Story 3 party. Braden got to make a Mr. Potato Head with a tortilla shell just like the movie. It was funny because Braden didn't want anything pink or purple on his head. Braden asked if he could have an orange off the counter instead of a cupcake. It is still so strange to me that Braden doesn't like any kind of candy or cake or really anything sweet or sugary. I guess it's a good thing but definately different for a little kid. I sure do love this little boy!

Final gymnastics meet

Jessie was excited because Nana and Grandpa got to come to this meet. Jessie did really well at her final meet of the season. She metaled in every event and all around.

Bars: 8.65

Beam: 7.7

Floor: 8.55

Vault: 9.0

AA: 33.9

She fell off during her beam routine during her jumps. When she was getting back on the beam she looked straight at us in the crowd. We all gave her big smiles and thumbs up! She gave us her big dimple grin and jumped right back up and finished her routine. It was a surreal moment. It gave me goose bumps to think about how much impact parents can have on their kids. Just a little smile and thumbs up gave her all the confidence!

Haha...I told Nik Nik. "Eyes on me." This is her doing the, "I've got my eyes on you!" That comes from having older siblings.

More Braden Photography, Inc.

Braden's newest technique is to add effects to the pictures he takes on my camera. This is one of his favorite's. It is the "negative" effect.
