Gingerbread House!

My sweet aunt Cathy sent my kids this Gingerbread house kit. Here's TJ and the girls ready to put it together Monday night for Family Night.

Peyton got one look at all of the candy and she thought that she was just going to sit and eat all of she was really excited!

Here's my sweet TJ concentrating really hard on making sure our gingerbread house look just like the one on the box.

The girls had so much fun decorating the house. Me and TJ had a lot of fun too.

Here are the girls with their house. We knew that it didn't look like the one on the box, but we thought we did pretty good.

When we were all finished I was taking a picture of the finished house and Taylor said, "it looks okay... if you look at it from far away."

CornMaze Fun

Here in Utah there are about 254 CornMazes that dot the state. I don't remember any growing up in South Carolina. I guess I was deprived as a child! So we decided we better go see what this whole CornMaze thing was about. We packed up the girls and made the voyage 10 miles up the road(basically their life is complete now that we have been) We went there with my sister and her family which made it alot of fun. Taylor loved the huge slide they had there and Peyton loved getting into anything she could and testing her parents nerves!

Happy Birthday Peyton!!

The answer to your question is yes! Taylor and Peyton have birthdays 8 days apart which makes for a fun time these past couple weeks. Peyton is such an amazing little girl and she is always so happy. Her favorite thing to do is tag along with her best friend, Taylor! She always has to do what her big sister is doing! We love you so much Peyton!!

Where a Kid can be a Kid

The one thing Taylor wanted to do for her birthday was go to the new ChuckECheese that just opened in Layton. So we invited some family and braved the crowds. The girls had alot of fun and so did TJ!

Happy Birthday Taylor!

Here is Taylor ready for her "wishes" at Papa and Gigi's house.

She wasn't excited at all the open all of these presents! Her birthday was on Saturday but she was so good and waited until yesterday (Monday) to open all of her presents. She had so much fun! Thanks for all of the presents.

Here is Kenzie holding Peyton. Peyton was very mad that all of the presents were for Taylor. It's hard to explain to an almost 2 year old that her Birthday is next week! She was pretty good. Especially when she found out that she got cake and ice cream just like Taylor. She also gave the cutest "Love you Tayla" for her birthday wish to her. If you don't know what birthday wishes are we just go around the table and tell the birthday person how much we love them and why. It is a fun tradition that my family does. I can't believe that Taylor is 5 she is growing up so fast! Happy Birthday Taylor we love you!


Here are the girls with Mitchell at the BYU game in Logan. They love Uncle Momo so much!

We had so much fun at the game. I didn't take very many pictures but Marcus,Brittany, and Kenzie were there also. Because everyone drove all the way to Logan that day and went to the game they all slept over at our house after. We loved having them all over for the night. I should've took pictures but we all played Guitar Hero and Mario Kart all night! They are welcome to stay over whenever they want.

On Friday the Anderson family went to Toad's! It's in Ogden and it's kind of like Boondock's. There is miniature golfing, games, laser tag, batting cages, and a driving range. We went miniature golfing and played some games. The girls had so much fun, and I am sure that TJ had as much fun if not more!

Here are some pictures of the miniature was a little wild because Peyton would run and pick up everyone's golf balls. It was so cute they had a teeny little golf club that was Peyton's size and she liked that a lot. Taylor is pretty good at miniature golfing...she beat me on a few holes!

Here is TJ playing on a small kid size air hockey table with Taylor...if you can't tell he is on his knees so that he is the right height to play.

I think that the girls favorite thing was playing games and I know that it was TJ's. We played a lot of games that the girls could play and we were just getting a couple tickets at each. TJ decided to play something where he could win a lot of tickets so that we could get the girls some toys. We saw the Deal or No Deal Game (just like the show) where you could win up to 200 tickets so TJ played. He had Taylor pick one of the cases to start the game....The final 2 cases to choose from either had 30 or 200 tickets and the offer from the banker was for 120 tickets so we took the offer. 120 tickets was a lot when we had been winning 3 or 4 here or there. We then found out the case that Taylor picked in the beginning was the case with 200 tickets! Good job Tay! We had a lot of fun over all and TJ...I mean the girls... want to go back again soon.

Taylor's first day of preschool

This is a little bit late because her first day of preschool was the 4th, but I just had to let everyone know that she started preschool this year. She just loves it she asks me everynight if she has school the next day. At school they have started cutting out shapes and it is her favorite thing. I had to get her some little scissors for home. She spends hours drawing pictures and cutting them out. I love it because it keeps her busy. She goes to school with her good friend Milee and is having a lot of fun.

Happy Birthday TJ!

Happy Birthday TJ! TJ just turned 28 on September 7! I just wanted everyone to know how much I love him! He is my best friend and super HOT. He works hard and takes such good care of me and the girls, he is the best husband and dad ever. My idea of a fun weekend is staying home with him and watching football. I love you sweetie.
We had a fun weekend TJ's mom came into town and the Warrens came over on Sunday and celebrated TJ's birthday with us. Thanks for all the gifts he received we always feel so loved. Me and the girls (with the help of the Bakers money they gave him) got TJ rockband for the wii. We have had a lot of fun with it so you can expect me and TJ to be experts at it.
