HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAYLOR!!!

This was at her winter concert. She was so extatic to get a new dress and boots and wear Mom's scarf. Birthday Presents!! Taylor's Treat for school. As a kid I never had the opportunity to take treats to school for my birthday because it was ALWAYS during christmas break. So This year I let Tay pick out what she wanted to take. And with my supervision we came up with these cupcake pops. According to Taylor everyone said that her treats were the best treats yet! (patting myself on the back :) The cake however was not as beatiful as hoped. It was my first time making a 4 layer cake. It kinda had some leaning issues. (or as Ryan would say a Gangsta Lean) But she loved it all the same :)

Maddie in her new pj's (Maddie is always in her pj's) Taylor's pillow from Grandma Halls Brandon and Rusty relaxing And I even got the opportunity to have both Brothers and The "other" man in my life together all at the same time :)..

Reindeer Food

Right before school took a break for Christmas Maddie and Syler came home with little baggies of "Reindeer Food". They were so excited because according to their Teachers they were supposed to sprinkle this food outside and the reindeer would know they had to stop at our house! They had so much fun with it!

What a week! We have had so much fun (with a little sadness) this past week! Julie and the boys came to visit, the kids were in heaven.. Julie and I - not so much.. We learned quickly that when our kids get together they DESTRUCT things! Grandma says that when they are separate they are ok but all 7 of them together is asking for trouble.. It was really good for the kids to see each other, and now Sky thinks he has 3 new brothers.. Uncle Brandon came to visit us for Christmas and brought his dog Rusty, Probably the last time we will see him due to old age.. :( we are all going to miss him! On the 24th we took Zoey to the ER with a low grade fever and bad rash all over her body.. They sent us home and told us it was a viral rash.. (aka "we have no idea what is wrong with her") She continued with the fever and we ended up taking her in again for them to tell us she has the "Foot and Mouth" virus, which might I add is highly contagious! (I know sounds like a fun one!. So we will be waiting for that to pass to all of the rest of us. Also on the 24th Uncle Ryan came home from Georgia. We had all the fam over Christmas morning for presents and breakfast. The kids were loving their gifts from everyone! On the 27th we noticed our dog Rondi was in labor, (the kids were ecstatic!)around 10 she had the puppy and unfortunately it was dead :( Now we are all sad and mopey.. including the dog.. She keeps taking Zoey's toy babies and rubber duckies and putting them in her bed and laying on them.. It breaks My heart. It has been a long couple of weeks (which is why I cant blog ever!)

Happy Birthday Ryan!

Skylers pumpkin

So this weekend we decided to go to the pumpkin patch which has become a tradition every year....The very first Pumpkin Skyler came across he grabbed and threw in the wagon.. We all watched in aww because it was pretty heavy! Needless to say he was satisfied! What was even funnier was that Maddie found the BIGGEST pumpkin in the patch.. which put Taylor on a mission to find one even bigger than her little sisters...
In the end she didn't find a bigger pumpkin but one that was "good enough" lol....
