My name is Kristen Self, mommy of three and wife to Chris "Honey" Self. I used to think I was defined by where I worked, what I wore, and who I was friends with. Now I know nothing is more rewarding then staying home with my kids, lovin my honey, working on my photography, and following the word of my savior. I hope you will follow the exciting, blessed and sometimes sad events that come though this world around me. Enjoy all of the photos provided by myself. Look forward to reading all of your feedback as well.
My dedicated husband, soul mate, and father to our babies. Met in 1989,married since 2003, our happiness is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Honey is the most virtuous man on Earth, he has developed patience and a terrific work ethic. I know this love of ours will continue to grow and blossom until we are brought before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Our 1st born baby is the life of the party, he excels in every sport he plays, LOVES the 2nd grade and may be a little bit of a Mama’s boy. Can you blame the kid, he has been joined at my hip since August of '00.
Olivia is the princess and the only baby girl in the house. When the ball gown comes off she loves sports, dancing and this lil lady can throw a tea party like no other. We were blessed with her big baby blues in March of '05.
The baby of the family, he is so sweet, a dancer, and singer. We are loving all of the new words he is learning and watching him explore everything. Liam completed our family in October 2007.

Today I was lucky enough to accompany Jalen's 2nd grade class to Schnepf's Farm in Queen Creek. Ms. Rolinger's class and Mrs. Tenny's class hit the road on the big yellow school bus together at 9am. The kids were pretty wound up, everyone was just so excited to be going on a field trip. Once getting to the farm we were able to get a tour of the petting zoo. The kids loved seeing the pigs, goats and cows. I am still amazed at how interesting a pile of poop is to a 8 year old. After sanitizing we got picked up for a hay ride. Mrs. Rolinger and I were hoping there would not be enough room for us on the wagon.....but the kids managed to squeeze in so we were able to ride too! Stef's class just adores her and they make sure she is with them at all times. One of Jalen's friends asked me if I could be his mom too, how funny is that? As soon as the little angles new I was Ms. Rolinger's younger sister they loved me too. One even asked if I could be his new mom.... The farmer allowed the kids to go out in the field and pick 6 radishes to take home. Some kids ate them before washing them, all of you parents out there know they would have never tried them at home. The playground was of course a hit and a great place for moms to take a break in the shade. The 2nd graders were all able to find shaded picnic tables, cool off and eat lunch. Hot, dirty and one banana bread loaf latter Ms. Rolinger and I were ready to head back to the school. Overall is was a great day and I feel so blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom and enjoy such outings.
P.S. Thank you Nana, Mom and Papa for watching the two little ones.
