the last williams is married

I was in Salt Lake taking photos of Emily's wedding.  She married a great guy and they are such a sweet couple.  I look forward to getting to know Thomas.  During the reception the boys sang a special number for sweet Em.

The past 4 weddings, of the boys, they would sing 'in the still of the night', so they sweetly surprised Emily with her own 'one of a kind' hit.


so fun, so sweet!

happy to welcome the new McConkie family to the group!


family shots.

after waiting and planning...and a saturday that we weren't running around like crazy....
(jump on over to my photography blog for more shots.)

ladies and gents.

i give you.



smooch. squeeze. pinch!

my silly poser!

daddy and conner.
love the kiss on the nose.



thanks to Jake for showing up to take this shot of us!  love it! (much more effective at making the kids look at the camera and smile than mr. tripod last year!)


conner update

conner's nail fell off tonight.

it's been looking like a popped car hood the past few days.

honk honk.


updates and vent

things have been busy.  but much busier lately.

the kids have just added to it.


conner had a sad mishap on Sunday. he got his finger shut in a door.  now the nail is all white and the finger is red and infected.  looks like the nail might fall off....gag.  he's also dealing with thrush AGAIN!!!!!  aah!  The doctor thought it was a condition at first, that was called geographic tongue....a chronic and somewhat painful condition...but I wasn't too sure about that diagnosis, since we've had the thrush problem in the past and for so long.  I'm hoping thrush is the right answer (I've been slowly getting to trust my instincts more).  at least this can be relieved and healed


but hey, it looks like he's still enjoying life!...just not to the full extent yet!

soon though.  very soon!   (hopefully)


we're still waiting on the new lenses to come in, and be put in the CORRECT way!  I still can't believe they screwed up the last pair...and we had her wear them for 6 MONTHS!

I only hope they don't ask for the 100 dollars for the replacement lenses...


you want me to pay for a job done wrong?

sorry, but these are going to be on you this time! thanks.

the doctor says that her eyes will not have suffered any major setbacks due to having one lens too strong for an eye and one lens too weak for the other.  doesn't seem logical to me.  time will tell.

kaylee and kelly (kaylee's other mommy)


he failed his hearing test twice at school.

took him into the ENT today.

he has fluid in both ears.  causing hearing loss.

we're giving him some steroids to bulk him up....i mean help the fluid drain.

in a couple months we have a follow-up appointment.  if there is still fluid in his ears....

ear tubes.


(I'll ask him a question or say something to him.  and without fail..."hu?" replies Cade.)

he's also been stuttering lately.  not sure why.

and through all this, he still doesn't qualify for speech therapy.  and i know he does...and so does his teacher.

my poor caders.  can't hear too good.  can't talk too good.

but, he's a good kid.  and i love him to pieces!  every clumsy moment!

who couldn't love this face?

it's just frustrating when you know how to help your kids, and you're unable to be the one to help them.

we're depending on everyone else.


i must learn.


been a long day.  and emotional day.

alright.  done venting all that cold air.  now on to some warm vent air.

  gotta go snuggle the honey.
