There is the neatest couple in our ward named AJ and Alissa Faust. AJ happens to be our home teacher, and is such an amazing person! On September 20, 2009, His parents, Damon and Barbara Faust of Mapleton, Utah, were hit by a man driving under the influence of illegal drugs. Damon died at the scene, and his wife was critically injured. Barbara was in intensive care for three weeks fighting for her life. Although she has returned home, she will need continued medical help and time to fully recover. The family has no health insurance and Damon's life insurance had expired just before the accident. This has left the family with mounting bills. Damon and Barbara have ten children; eight of them are still at home. The family is in great financial need as a result of the accident and loss of Damon and the sole income he provided. As a result, the community has coming together to help raise $ for the family. There is a fund raiser this Thursday for the Faust family. Dinner can be purchased, activities to keep the kids busy, entertainment, great auction items, connecting with friends and family and a tribute to Damon. February 18 UVU McKay Events Center. Dinner and silent auction 6-7PM, auction and entertainment 7PM on. To learn more about the event you can go here. Please spread the word to your family and friends that live in the area. Also, it would be great if you could post about it on your own blog or facebook!

AZ Photo shoots!

So really I was suppose to be going on a cruise to the Bahamas with the hubs this month, but the cruise line will not allow babies under 6 months. bummer. There is absolutely NO way I could ever leave my little becky beck home this young, so guess who is going in my place!? Ivy! Yup that's right, Ivy will get to see the Bahamas- somewhere I have always wanted to go, before me. Johnny is actually REALLY excited to take her. I think he might be a little bit crazy, but none the less I think they will have a GREAT time together. Anyway, while half of my little fam is cruisin away, I will be in AZ in a couple weeks hangin with the fam and doing some photo shoots! I already have a few lined up, but am willing to do a few more. If you have emailed me about sessions recently, and I have not gotten back to you, I will soon. promise. I have gotten SO behind on everything since having Beckham, but I think I have almost got this 2 kid thing under control! YAY! Anyway, email me if you have any questions or are interested in booking a session. I will be there the week of feb 22nd. And because every post needs something besides text, here is a video of a commercial my father-in-law and little sister-in-law did for a friend's company . I am not going to lie, i had tears in my eyes as I watched it, might have been due to the fact that I watched it right after I had the babe! haha! SO cheesy, but I thought they were perfect!!
