This is a little belated… OK may be it is very belated but we have been relaxing and enjoying our time at home for Christmas and New Year. We were just trying to catch up on life and sleep. We have been traveling a lot since October for Dallin’s residency interviews. We decided to home school our kids for three months as we traveled coast-to-coast. Dallin is in his fourth year of medical school which means he is entering the “National Resident Matching Program“. Every fourth year medical student, who decides to pursue a practicing career in medicine, needs to complete a minimum of three year residency. These medical students apply across the country for a residency in their desired specialty. Some people interview at only a few programs while others interview at twenty five programs or more! It really depends on the specialty they choose. Dallin decided to interview at twelve pediatric residency programs. About half of the programs he applied to have a special Physician-Scientist track for MD/PhD’s. Dallin has currently finished 9 out of the 12 interviews. After the remaining interviews, we will complete our match list and submit it. The programs also rank all their applicants. March 15, 2019 is “Match Day” when graduating medical students nationwide will open their match letter to find out where they go for residency. It is a fun and stressful time filled with uncertainty and much excitement. We are so grateful for all the family and friends who have helped us these last few months! We are humbled by everyone who has message us, taken us in, helped us when we lost our luggage (… Don’t worry we eventually got it back!), given us advice, babysat the kids on the road, filled our callings at church, fed us, housed us, and kept us going. We have traveled approximately 14,700 miles by plane and roads. We couldn’t have made it this far without you guys! Thanks so much!
Dallin, May Bo, Micah (7), Quentin (5), Emily (3), and Jakey (1)
PS – 2018 family video is still in the making!
Here’s our past years Christmas Cards:
We had a cute professional Santa come to our Christmas party so I had to take advantage of the moment to take some cute pictures of my kids!
Santa with the littlest one:
Micah was telling Santa he wanted a robot!
Quentin says he wants a Star Wars lego set.
Emily didn’t care for Santa at all! She insisted on wearing her favorite Halloween skirt. She was born in October so I guess she must like Halloween more than Christmas?
Sometimes we call our little Emily “Boo Boo” so I had to find her a Boo costume from Monster’s inc. It was super easy!
It’s been a while. I’ve been happily engaged in photography and missionary work.
Since I’m not on here very often anymore, I just wanted to let you know places that my work has been featured on lately:
General Conference: Father’s by Elder Christofferson – April 2016
Gospel Topics: Emergency Preparedness
Our Family’s Journey to the “Mormon Disneyland”
“Because I am a Child of God” Music Video
I love the gospel so much! I am so grateful to be able to serve the Lord with this spiritual gift He has given me of photography. He has truly magnified my talents as I have been willing to serve Him and I am truly humbled and grateful for this experience!

Hey!! So I have a lot of ideas of things to write about but I feel like I’m going to take some time to fix up my blog. I have a ton of broken links and pictures.
Our family is doing well. We have been just living life and busy as ever.
Dallin finished his PhD last summer and started medical school last August. So far it’s going well and time is flying by.
Our little baby girl is grown big. She is over 3 months old now. She is sooo cute.
I’m busy being MOM and wife of a medical student! My oldest son is in pre-school for 2 days of the week then we do home school the rest of the days with my middle son who is 2 years old.
My oldest son is picking up reading really fast! I can’t keep up with teaching him how to read.
I’m still taking pictures for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’ve been on a church service mission for almost a year now. I can’t believe how much my photography has improved this year. I really feel like my talents in photography has been a gift from God.
I love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through words and photography!
I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God on the earth today. If you have any questions, please let me know!
We are going to do a digital Christmas card this year again! It’s just easier and it simplifies our Christmas.
This year we welcome a little girl named Emily. 7 lbs even and 20 inches long. We love her so much!
Here’s our past years Christmas Cards:
This is the 2015 Christmas video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called “A Savior is Born”.
Hey! It’s taken me 2.5 months to post Quentin’s 2 year old pictures. I’ve been super busy with my kids, studying photography and keeping my apartment clean!!! That’s why I haven’t had time to post anything!
I dressed him up as Hiro from Big Hero 6. Why? Because his hair was super long and my husband really wanted me to cut it. So I had to dress him up like Hiro before I cut off his awesome hair.
This can be a super easy Halloween Costume for any little boy who has long shaggy hair! It could help if you were Asian or half Asian but either way… it’s super easy to dress up like Hiro.
I love the movie Big Hero 6 because of Baymax… I think I need a Baymax to take care of me!
Isn’t Quentin super cute!?
