35 Years Mr. Hall.... Happy Birthday!

September 2001



First Year of Law School. Love the hair and the computer...


Halloween of 2006


July of 2000. Still has that serious face on, don't let it fool you.

Can you believe your thirty five years old. Look how much you've done, accomplished, and dealt with. What a wonderful milestone. We love you dad!

Intense work here





Way to work hard Patrick, we can see how hard you focused on these little vehicles for Pinewood Derby night...

The boys had the time of their life racing their cars for the Pinewood Derby. I kind of died laughing at how intense these cute little boys get about racing their cars for five seconds. But I'm all about passion.

Lisa my dear arranged a fun lunch, so kind, Thank you so much for that, you were missed indeed! Christina gave me the yummiest chocolate pomegranate treat, and a beautiful plant, such a sweetheart. Great company with great conversations, what I love most in life...

Mr. Hall was wonderful company, and its always great to get out and be just the two of us

Houston's was really yummy!

Mom and Rissa gave me fabulous babysitting all day. So many kind birthday wishes from all. I always feel very blessed to have such wonderful people around me constantly, so thank you to all!

This is beyond words....






I can't even write anything I'm so overwhelmed with how horrible this Earthquake was in Haiti. 7.0 is unimaginable!!!! I get so darn emotional about these kinds of events that nobody has control over. Please everyone, pray so hard for this country right now. And try to remember every moment of your life, and how blessed you are.

That's Just My Dad.....









Saturday afternoon.....

Lincoln and Noah eating Nachos with friends, Patrick doing what he loves, with no hesitation.

John Crumb replies," What's your dad doing"?
Noah replies, "Oh that's just my dad, he always sings, plays the guitar and now plays the harmonica since my mom got him a harmonica holder"...
John "Oh...."

Back to eating Nachos, Mom cleaning shutters.

Happy Saturday.

Mr and Mrs Eric Olsen









Gorgeous Reception! I've known this beautiful Bride, Kiersten Poulsen Olsen since forever. So fun to see her glow on her special day. The talent her mom, Debbie has is absolutely unreal, and not to mention Shelly Hawkins Bowers also helped with decorating the reception. Simple elegance right down to the ground.

Halls and Hay Start it out Right

Lincoln starting his dance moves


Our annual pose is a must. My boys beg for their photos to be taken. Enough already I keep telling them.

I love Donuts! Way to start the New Year off to healthy start.



Sorry to the other Madsen Clan that had to miss out on our special bonding time with Miss Hayley Jane.

Hayley, we send you back with the greatest abundance of warmth, while heading back to the North Pole. I mean Utah.

Beatniks Welcome 2010



Yes, I got Patrick to dress up, and I loved every minute of it. He looked so COOL, and I tried to be so COOL snapping my fingers down low like I'm at a jazz club, feeling the beat. We were off to be a true beatnik. It fit Patrick so well. From the books he reads and every music out there during that time he owns. So I had fun learning all about that era, and everything that went along with it. Thanks, Reachel, Andrew and beautiful little Coco.











The Bagleys always throw the greatest shin digs. Beatniks was the theme of this New Years Bash, and it was hilarious. Reachel is an absolute wonderful hostess. Each guest got sent home with their very own mug, with their initials on them. The food was splendid... The gourmet hot chocolate was crazy, yummy, and displayed so dang classy. I adore my cousins and always feel so blessed that I have so many.

*Now I need to start thinking about all the goals I need to set for 2010.
