Carson and Marissa Pics!

Hey family!

So we've completed the editing process of Carson and Marissa's wedding pictures. Finally :). They can be found at:


If you plan to download them, be warned that the files are there original size (so you can print them from there) so it will take a while. Hence the reason they are at 2 different locations (couldn't all fit on one).

Also, if you'd like to print them there is no need make an color adjustments (unless you're getting artsy fartsy and changing the look entirely). They may look a little differently on different monitors, but we promise they should print properly. We've calibrated our monitor and what not to the color files photo printers use (thanks to a Pro-photographer friend in our ward and his fancy tools :)). blah, blah, blah... ok I hope you guys like!!!

Collections of the Black Family Halloween

Halloween was such a blast this year. From school parades, trick or treating and having a party at Jake and Melissa's it was a day to remember. Pictured above are: my kids transformed into a Barbie fairytopia, Batman and Indiana Jones. The rest of the pictures are of the Smith, Bingham and Black kids showing off their costumes. If you notice the last picture, we had a surprise visit from Sarah Palin and John McCain. We were very honored to have them at our party. Melissa and Jacob put on another great Halloween party with: mummy dogs, chowder, eating donuts without our hands dangling from a string, playing Canasta, watching "Monster House" and Jacob scaring all the kids with his hunchback, pig-faced, black wigged creature. We also enjoyed meeting Marissa's friends and boyfriend! Uncle Matthew was sure fun with all the kids. They all love having him around. Thank you for all the fun memories everyone in Utah. We would love to hear and see everyone elses Halloween memories! Love you all!
