taking it one day at a time........

We are waiting here at the Mitchell household. Waiting for news about our future. Nothing earth shattering, Just a possible change in location. I dont want to say too much. mainly because I don't want to be to disappointed if it doesn't happen. I am really bad at waiting. I have no idea how parents can go nine months not knowing what the sex of their baby is. I am way to impatient for that. But God is telling me to chill out for a week or so. Summer time is a hard time to "Chill" in Arizona. School is out and the girls are home. Its so sad to keep kids indoors all summer. Its not natural. We did go swimming today. I only let the girls swim for about a hour. My light skinned, blond hair, hazel eyed daughters burn to a crisp if they stay out much longer.
It was a great day though. I wrapped it up with a mini photo shoot with Miss Ashlynn. She is such a model. Tall, skinny, and she loves to work it for the camera.
I hope you all had a wonderful memorial day. I am grateful for all the men and women who serve or have served in our military. We are so blessed to live in the land of the free. Lets all remember that freedom comes at a cost.

My first testimonial !!

This reminds me of how much I LOVE my job !!!

One of the most special days in a person’s life, is their wedding day; because this day is so important it is awesome when you are able to find a professional person that not only makes everyone feel comfortable, but is able to capture those special moments with incredible photographs. This is exactly how my new husband and I feel about Lauren Mitchell, from Laruen Jean Photography; she was able to capture the highlights of our wedding and not only are our posed pictures great, but she was able to capture our candid moments beautifully and as we look at our pictures now, we are able to see the joy and love in everyone’s eyes as we can still feel the overwhelming emotion of that day. Thank you Lauren for providing us with these images that we will treasure forever and that we will be able to share with our loved ones and each other throughout what we hope to be a long and beautiful life together.

Eternally Grateful,

Michael and Xochitl Johnson

We were sick last week.

Tonight i am feeling tired and a little run down. I am sure i am just feeling the residual effects of the crazy mutated virus we caught last week. Will got sick on mothers day and we all followed suit. By Wednesday morning I gave up pretending like things were normal in our home and just rolled with it. Thank goodness my older daughters are awesome at making to the bathroom when they feel funny in the tummy. The baby well.... I can deal with that. My husband was so sweet to put up with me falling asleep to old Mary Tyler Moore episodes every night. For some reason when I am sick I need to fall asleep watching t.v.

So needless to say I am behind on my editing and blogging. But i had to share these darling pics of my friend Jenn and her family. Jenn was the winner of a free photo shoot from Laurenjean photography. Thanks for coming out Jenn !! I had so much fun with you guys :)
