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.

My new haircut.

I found a picture of a haircut on the internet, I loved it, I just didn't know if I could pull it off. For the last few years I have really long hair, now I have really short hair. I am really liking it, it is way cooler than having it laying on my back during the hot, hot summer. So here are a few pictures of the new haircut.

I got Taylor already today and she wanted to wear a hat, so I put her hair in a ponytail and put her hair through the back of the hat. I got the camera out to take a picture and said Taylor can you say "Cheese!" She says no, she takes the hat off and puts it on backwards, then looks at me and says, "Cheese!" I have no idea where she got the idea to wear her hat backwards. Kids are just simply amazing.

More Pictures of Taylor's Birthday Cake

Taylor's Birthday

Taylor turned two on July 7, 2008. I can't believe that my little baby is now entering her terrible two's. Oh, Mark and I are so lucky to have this sweet little toddler. I love her to death, but I am not loving the tantrums that she loves to have. She will throw herself backwards and land right onto the ground, it doesn't matter what the ground is. We are lucky that she has not had any major injuries.

Anyways, here are a few pictures from Taylor's Birthday. Mainly of the cake and a few cousins that came to the party. My cousin took the rest of the pictures, once she gives me a cd I will then put those on later.

PS. I made the cake myself... Taylor loves pigs, so I found a website that showed pictures and I just went from there. Then, I decided that I needed to do piglets so I made cupcakes. I was very proud of myself for how they turned out.
