at the midnight hour... more more.

Friday night, kids are in bed, jammies on, when the husband gets one of those calls. And the poor guy has to suit back up and go for the umpteenth time this week and help the masses.   So I text Jane. She's married to my brother who was also called as a bishop last year, and  she's my go-to when it all gets a bit much. 


And in the meantime, I'll blog. A few of the promised before and after pics of the TEN FREAKING YEARS. 

At the Halloween orchestra concert I conducted. 

The night we got all officially engaged. 

Engagement shots. 

Just before Brasil got totally humiliated at the World Cup a coupla weeks ago. 

At an 80s party this February... I think. 

Last week. 

I used to get my hairs did. And bought clothing that looked good on me.  Now, I unashamedly care not for beans. And my main motivation in the clothing I buy is how much of this will keep me covered while I'm dragging one child through the store while another is on my hip, yanking at the neckline, chasing the third who is two aisles ahead of me, screaming for cupcakes and the potty. 

Like I said, it's a good life. But completely unplanned. 24 year old me would be totally weirded out.

What a gorgeous family picture! You guys always look great. My favorite is when Jared has the Axl Rose hairs. Congrats guys!

You used to get your hairs did, A LOT. I remember your 30th birthday video montage with all the hair varieties and colors.
I like the engagement picture hair the best.
It's all awesome! You are the envy of many.

You still manage to make your hairs look cooler than mine more often than not and I'm 2 mini demanders behind you. That said, I am not starting to freak out that your wedding was close to 10 years ago. That's just... weird.

Great GENES!!!

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
