Happy Birthday Jack!

We just love having Jack in the family! He is always so happy. I can't believe it was a year ago that we had our little Jack, it went so fast. I'm so glad that he was born.

I know that he looks like a sweet little angel in the first pictures, but he can be a maggot! Once he started crawling he is into everything and now that he can walk he's even faster!

One day while making brownies I put the beaters in the dishwasher and he found one and started licking it. Now he loves the dishwasher every time I open it he's there in a second, trying to find another yummy treat. Then one day he clilmbed all the way into it.

He keeps me moving all the time...if it's ever quiet for a few minutes, I know that he's getting into something!

He loves to climb things, because we have 2 sets of stairs he's very good at that. This is him just thismorning climbing the ladder on the big sisters bunkbeads!

Happy Birthday Jack! We love you!

The Holidays

We had so much fun over the hlidays. We had a lot of visitors, so many people who love us.

Nana came for Thanksgiving from Pheonix, and we loved having her here. Our cousins also came and we celebrated Nana's 80th birthday! Thanks for coming grandma we had a lot of fun.

Then about a week before Christmas TJ's mom came into town from Colorado and we celebrated Christmas with her. It was awesome we love spending time with grandma Diane and we appreciate her coming. She does so much for us. We also spent time with Tara and her family. She hosted the Christmas party and did a wonderful job.

Then for Christmas Uncle Bret and Aunt Whitney came from California to visit. It was so fun to see them, the kids just loved spending time with them. It was fun for them to see Jack getting bigger and crawling around. Thanks for coming Bret and Whit it was fun to see you.

We had a fun Halloween, we went to the Bakers house and went trick or treating. Here is Peyton hanging out with uncle mitchell the cowboy.

Here is my handsome husband. I'm not sure exactly what he was for halloween, but he looked good. Go Jr!

Back to the cute pictures. Here is Taylor the witch, Peyton the black cat, and Jack the spider.

My little spider won't hold still for very long, he gets into everything.

Here are the three maggots in their halloween shirts that grandma bought them. Thankyou grandma!

This was Taylor in her first Halloween parade at school. I went to her class and helped out with the Halloween party and she had a lot of fun.

We are so excited. TJ's brother Torrey came to visit us and he brought TJ a Clemson Snugi for his birthday! We are so relieved that we can sit and watch TV or snuggle on the couch with a blanket on and still have our hands free to use the remote or hold a book. We can even keep our blanket on while we play mario kart or rockband on the wii, How Awesome! Thanks Torrey, we loved having you here.

Happy 6 months Jack!

Here are some fun pictures of baby Jack. We can't beleive that he is 6 months!

Here he is on the day he was born with his big sister Taylor

He loves hanging out with the uncles (sometimes he feels likes he's around the girls a little too much) Here he is with Uncle Mitchell.

Jack loves Peyton. She always plays with him. Sometimes the playing gets a little rough, but she usually makes him smile.

He has been so fun to have in our family, I can already tell that he has a fun personality.

What an awesome first football season! We are glad it's living up to the hype! TJ and I were telling him how awesome it was, but we didn't know that his first BYU game would be BYU beating #3 Oklahoma! Go Cougars!

Kindergarten Here We Come!

Taylor is so excited for school! You can probabally tell by the cheerleader pose.

She looked so cute, I love that I could have worn the exact same outfit and my hair crimped just like Taylor when I was in kindergarten.

Here's the cute little sister, she is sad that Taylor is going to be going to school everyday but I am excited to have some mommy-Peyton time.

Here's Taylor getting off the bus for the first time! She was actually doing a full on sprint back to the house!

Peyton missed Taylor a lot and ran to meet her when she came off the bus. At dinner tonight TJ was asking Taylor if she had a guy or girl bus driver. Taylor (in her Taylor way) said "It was a guy bus driver, He was kinda black with shortish hair". TJ then proceeded to ask her if it was Carlos Boozer to which she rolled her eyes and said, "no dad, it was not Carlos Boozer"

The next Mia Hamm?

Taylor has now officially started her career in the sports world. She had her first soccer game this past Saturday and she did a good job making her parents proud by scoring a goal in the game. She is playing with one of her best friends which makes for a powerful one-two punch! In her age group they practice for the first half hour and then play four 5 minute quarters after the practice. Now we get to be the parents that provide the capri suns and orange slices at the games. How fun is that!! We will keep everyone updated on the season and let you know what college scouts are coming out looking at her and her soccer skills.
