Picture Overload

Here are some other pictures that were taken of our little angel!

The other night I went to see what Taylor was doing because she was being way to quiet. I go into her room she was tucking her babies into her bed one on each pillow and then she took our portable dvd player into her room and put a movie on for her babies! She then turned on the lamp and said good night. I love you and walked out. Now, I know you have to watch every little thing you do because they will copy you word for word.

Gingerbread House & Crafts

Sorry it has been so long since we have posted. Life has been pretty busy for us. I went up to Sprigville three weeks ago, and hung out with my Awesome SIL Brandee. We had a blast, we went to this wood store up in SLC. I bought a few pieces of wood and turned them into some Christmas presents.

Here is the first project I made it is for some friends of ours, It was my first time using my cricut so it is not the best, but I am getting better!

Here is another craft I did using my cricut. I made this for my parents, but now I see how cute it turned out I need to go back to the wood store and get a few more so that I can have one!

Here is a Christmas decoration I just made as well, it turned out way cute!

Last night we made our gingerbread house. Taylor kept eating the candy. She had so much fun. She kept saying oh, wow.

Happy Halloween!

So I thought that I would try something new this year. I actually carved my very first pumpkin. I also made Taylor's Halloween Costume. Taylor is obsessed with Tinkerbell, so I thought that I could make her a cute Tutu. I had no Idea how to make them, but I found a website and taught myself. I thought it turned out super cute!

Halloween night my parents came into town, to take little Tinkerbell around. I think she just liked the freedom, she ran all over back and forth. I thought she would be tired but she kept going and going. It was the funniest thing, Taylor would carry her basket to the door put the candy in it, drop it for mom to pick it up, then she would run off. Her Winnie the Pooh pumpkin basket was filled to the top of candy for her mommy and daddy!

Do you know the #1 song the day you were born?

My Cousin has this on her blog and her sister had sent it to me and I thought it was funny. So if you want to try it you can here is the link you go to www.joshhosler.biz/NumberOneInHistory/SelectMonth.htm

Mark- Jan 11, 1983 ... "Down Under" by Men at Work
Hillary- June 15, 1984 ... "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper
Taylor- July 7, 2006 ... "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland

Give it a try, it is kind of neat to see what the hits were back in the day and how the music has changed over time.

My Sweet Girl

The other day I was over at the Mahoney's House for Megan's birthday, and Jeff was just practicing with his camera! So I was like do you think you could practice with Taylor? He was like sure, Taylor was so dang cute. She is finally hold enough to sit still and would actually pose! Now, that I know this, we are need to get FAMILY pictures done. I no longer have a baby, she is a big girl. I just can't believe how fast time goes by.

Taylor is starting to talk a lot, I love it. The other day we were at my aunt and uncle's and my cousin was leaving she stood up and said bye-bye, Doug laughed and started to leave, when Taylor then said, " Peace-Out!"
Some of her sayings are: Be Nice, Shut up Spud( Spud is the dog, she learned shut up from Great Grandma!), Look at that! Everything is Look at the mamma! This list goes on. She is such a blessing to have in our lives. I love you Taylor Nicole!
Here a few of her poses!

Thankful For My Grandma

This past weekend was a busy weekend and a not so fun one. It started on Friday with a cute stray dog that had been running through the neighborhood. On Friday night, the dog sat outside our window and just howled. I felt very bad for the dog, so the next morning I went out with some food and befriended the dog. BIG MISTAKE. I posted signs for the dog and no one called. My Grandma was getting more stressed out which was causing her to be quite sick and dizzy. My grandma had let the dog in her house so it wouldn't have to be out in the heat. She is way to nice.

On Sunday, Grandma was not well at all, she was so dizzy and worried that this dog would get killed at the pound so she was calling all these places frantically to see if they were a "no Kill" facility. Mark and I went to church in our new ward, only stayed for Sacrament, Thanks to Taylor! The sweet angel she is.... Anyways, I was preparing a nice dinner, Kevin and Christine and Katelynn were coming over for this wonderful meal.

After dinner was done we decided that we were going to play the Wii, I was stressed out because my grandma was so worried about the DUMB DOG. So I decided that the Wii is just what I needed. We started to play, we had the two girls in Taylor's Room playing with all her Toys. It was my turn to go and all of a sudden we heard this big loud THUD, and ran to Taylor's room, it was nothing in there and then all of a sudden I could hear my grandma moaning. Mark and Kevin rushed to be by her side. All I saw was blood and more blood.

Mark and I drove grandma to the ER where she had to have 25 Stitches put in her head. She had hit and artery in her head which wouldn't stop bleeding, so they had to clot the blood, then gave her 5 stitches on the inside, then 20 on the outside.

Grandma is doing ok now, I am just grateful that Mark was here to help me. I don't know if I could have pulled it off by myself. I am also grateful to have such a wonderful grandma who would do anything for us. I love you Grandma and hope you get feeling better soon.

Also, thank you for those of you who helped out with Grandma and also with watching Taylor.

Taylor's New Dress

We wanted to Thank Aunt Star for the cute dress she got Taylor for her birthday. It looks so cute on her! Also, we wanted to thank Grandma Bev for sharing her Ice Cream bar with Taylor. She just loves Chocolate! My Grandma just loves to have her picture taken, can you see how she placed her hand right in front of her face. Silly Grandma!


We went bowling yesterday with Kevin and Christine. We were all brave parents we didn't get a babysitter. We took our kids and it was so much fun.... Can you hear the sarcasm in my voice? Anways, Mark and I really have never gone bowling before, we just usually bowl from our living room on our Wii. Our first game I lost big time I bowled a 93 and Mark bowled a 102. Kevin and Christine killed us they were like 141 and 132. So we played another game and it looked like I was going to loose again, but then Mark decided to give me a good luck kiss, which led to four straight strikes. I couldn't believe it. I won the second round bowling 163. I was so happy, I think I finally figured out how to bowl.

While the Cats are away the Mice will play!

Kevin and Christine came over to our house a last week to hang out, we watched Fool's Gold. We also had a wonderful dinner, Ribs! I love ribs and could probably eat a whole rack myself. Don't worry I have never eaten a whole rack( Thanks to my self control!!)

When we sat down to watch the movie Taylor and Katelynn were in Taylor's room playing with toys, so we thought......
I decided it was a little quiet so I went in to check on them and found that they were not in Taylor's room, but that they were in the bathroom. They had put a whole role of toilet paper in the toilet. They had so much in there, that there wasn't even any water in the toilet. Hey at least they had fun right?


Taylor and I went boating with the family. We had such a good time. I didn't know I had a dare devil for a child. Taylor rode the tube twice and when she went over the bumps she would say, " oh, no!". She even jumped off the boat into the water. I couldn't believe it, she played in the water all day and didn't complain about her life jacket at all. Taylor was also the official flag holder. We couldn't get her to let go of the flag!

I didn't have my camera with me, so I had to take pictures with my phone! They still turned out way cute.
