Hello Everyone, sorry it has been so long since my last post. We have been super busy! I left off on my birthday post which was a month late.
On July 7th, 2009 our little Taylor had her THIRD birthday! Wow, I can't believe how fast the time goes by. We had a birthday party for her and she loved every bit of attention. We would ask her what she wanted for her birthday and she said, " I just want Candles!" What a funny little girl we have, who knew blowing out candles would be so much fun.

The month of September has been a busy one Taylor started PRESCHOOL! She gets to go to school M-W-F, so it is a nice break for all us. Everyday we pick her up she has some new learning game to play at home. I tried taking a picture of her before school, well, lets just say she is at that cheesy picture stage.....

The second week in September I was lucky enough to get a little vacation and head up to Salt Lake City for a few days at my cousin Tami's house. I was going up to work on some cute crafts and christmas presents, while she scrap-booked! Would you know I forgot my camera, it seems like I am always forgetting that darn camera. I got to her house on Wednesday afternoon and we then headed to The Wood Connection, where I spent a good chunk of money.... This is what I made with some of the wood I bought, I am still working on my other projects.

I made this cute sign for my cousin Lindsey for a wedding present. I think it turned out cute! Not bad for my first sign. I might just have to make one for my house!

This is a cute "T" sign for little Taylor's room. I also did some vinyl on her bed. Lets just say I love my CRICUT!

I made this clock for myself, It was not that hard to do. The numbers are a little off, I would love to take the numbers off and fix them but I think it will rip the paper. I will just get over it or have to make another one...

On Thursday Tami and I went to Gardner Village and had lunch, walked around and shopped for a little while. The rest of the weekend we just hung out and watched some movies and crafted! Made some Oreo Truffles, way to good. It was so much fun, I can't wait to go again. I am going to have to get a job so I can support my crafting habit!

I came home for a few days then went back up north for my cousin Lindsey's wedding. I was the lucky one who took grandma and her beloved SPUD up to the wedding. It was a long car ride, we had to stop 5 times so Grandma, Spud and Taylor could all go to the bathroom. By the time I got to the cabin I was exhausted and didn't ever want to get in the car with those three again. I think next time I will be putting Diapers on all three of them. ( No it wasn't that bad). She got married up in Millcreek Canyon. I had never been up there, it was absoultley beautiful. I was sad for her because just as she was walking down the isle it started to rain. We had a wonderful time spending time with family and friends we had not seen in a long time.

Now, I have been home for a few days busy working on school pictures that I am helping with, it is keeping my busy and I am having a lot of fun doing the work and thinking about the nice Paycheck coming my way. Today is Friday the 25th of september and we are going to Lake Mead with the Mahoney family. Julie has a nephew getting married on Sat. in one of the little white chapels in Las Vegas. So we are going to Lake Mead and then to the Wedding and we will be home late Sat. night. We are so excited to go play in the water!

That is our story for the last couple of weeks.
