Taylor Halloween Party

This last weekend we got to go to Logan, Utah. I love, love Logan, when we got there the roads were covered with leaves and the weather was beautiful, it was going to be a great weekend to have the Taylor Halloween Party! On Friday night my sister-in law Sheena and I attempted to make carmel apples, and let me tell you that endeavor seemed like it would be ALOT easier than it was! Lets just say they really didn't look as we planned (all the carmel basically oozed off the apples!!) but hopefully we can try again next year with better luck!(Any tips are appreciated!!) Anyway the party was Saturday and Sheena put together a fun scavenger hunt and it was a blast (the girls won!!). That night we went to The Pumpkin Walk in Logan and it was so much fun. The Pumpkin Walk was basically scenes from kids movies like Bugs Life and Toy Story made out of pumpkins, so cute! If you ever are in Logan around the last weeks of October it is a must go activity. Hunter loved it, he kept looking at all the scenes and pointing and saying Oooo, it was so much fun and I think that we will go in all the years to come. Here are a few pictures of everyone's Halloween costumes and The Pumpkin Walk!

Summer Update in Pictures

So I know probably no one reads our blog anymore...which I get, why would you if I never ever update it!!! Every time I do a blog post I always promise myself that I am going to be better at posting, and guess what... I NEVER am so I am not promising anything anymore! But I did think that it might be a fun idea to show you some pictures from our fun and so busy summer. We had so much happen from going to vegas, moving to Shelly Idaho, trips to Bear Lake, and Hunter getting bigger everyday. (I really can't believe that I have a one year old...birthday party pics to come soon, and when I say soon hopefully that will be before he is 2 but like I said I am not promising anything!!) Anyway for your viewing pleasure here is Summer 2010 for the Taylor's.

Hunter's cousins (minus cousin Carter) all of them are (2 months apart),
this was Hunters first time at the cabin in Bear Lake
The Venetian in Las Vegas
Reed's high school graduation
Bear Lake
At the airport picking up Preston from him mission
Hunter and his cousin Wyatt at the zoo
Hunter eating mashed potatoes....11months old
We had such a fun summer, and we are really loving the fall that is finally showing up! Landon is still in school and working full time at Mountain View Hospital as a Physical Therapy Asst. And I am still at home with Hunter, I am so blessed that I can be a stay at home mom. Hunter is almost walking and saying a few words, he is such a cute and sweet little boy we love him so much. We just had family pictures, and Hunter's first birthday party so as soon as I get those pictures I will post them!

Much Needed Update

Well life has been busy, as it always is! Landon, Hunter, and I have been living in Logan, Utah with Landon's parents while Landon finishes his last clinical. We have been having so much fun being down in Logan, Landon's parents have been so great and easy to live with! We have already been there for five weeks and we only have 2 weeks left, I can't believe it! The seven weeks have gone by so so fast! Hunter is getting so big, i can't believe he is already almost 7 months old! we went to the doctor a few weeks ago for his 6 month appt. and these were his stats....WEIGHT 18pounds 4ounces 61 percentile HEIGHT 27 1/2 inches 62 percentile....the nurse said he looks like a nine month old! He is starting to get so fun...this last week he cut his first tooth and I didn't even know until I stuck my finger in his mouth and realized it was there, he wasn't fussy or anything! Hunter is loving his solid foods, he loves veggies and hates fruit! He is sitting up so good, and is so curious about everything (once he can crawl we are in HUGE trouble)!
So the school year for Landon is winding down and he is almost done with his Physical Therapy Asst. program, we are so excited for him to finish his bachelor and apply to PT school! But before all of that we are going on our much needed break, and boy does Landon need it, he has been working 10 hours a day every day of the week for these past seven weeks, and I can tell he is so burnt out! He usually can't even stay awake till 10:00, and normally we go to be about midnight! But I am so grateful for him...he is the best! And it will be so nice for us to go to Vegas and be in the heat...and just relax!
Ok here are some so cute pictures of Hunter, sorry some of them his shirt is covered in drool but blame that on the teething because I think he is getting another one!

Ok so the weather will be getting nicer sooner or later...and when it does I want to be able to go running outside. Well now that I am a mom I can't go without my little guy! So I need to get a jogger so I can take Hunter with me, does anyone have any suggestions on what brand or more specifically what kind of jogger I should look into getting?

Here I Go...

Alright, since I had Hunter I have been wanting to lose the weight and then some....My goal is to be about 15 pounds thinner than when I got married. Well I have been eating really healthy, and working out about 4 times a week.I have been seeing results, but I want to take it up a notch and decided to maybe run in a race. I started looking at different blogs and was really inspired by this blog. The woman that writes this blog lost about 46 pounds and she started with this program that I am now going to follow! I have read the program and I don't think it sounds to hard, its just going to take commitment! I have registered for my first race, a 5k in Pocatello, its on May 15th thats the day before Landon and I go to Vegas, so hopefully that will help me be in shape by then! By the end of the summer I want to be able to do a 10k and Landon wants me to train to do a triathlon in Bear Lake(we will see!) So I will let all of you know how my training is going. I know I am not starting out big but I have to start somewhere, I would really love to be able to get myself to run a half marathon, but for right now I am taking baby steps but I am really excited! And to top everything off I asked my mom if she wanted to train and run the 5k with me and she is going to! So wish me luck...I am really excited for the next nine weeks of training and the race! If any of you runners out there have any tips let me know...from what to eat while you train, to good music to listen to that would be great!

5 things to be grateful for!!

I have been thinking a lot lately about how grateful and blessed I am!
Heavenly Father has blessed me with so many things
especially, so many wonderful people!

First of all I am so so blessed to have such an awesome husband!
Landon works so hard for our family,
since we Landon and I started dating he has worked a full time job
and had a full 16 credit class load, he really is so amazing to me!
Not only is Landon such a hard worker he is so much fun,
there isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't make me
Laugh so hard, he really has such an amazing personality!
I LOVE him SO much!

Second, I am so grateful for my little Hunter. He has such a sweet
and loving spirit! I look at him everyday
and just wonder how I got so lucky to have him!
I am so excited to watch him grow up!

Third, I am so glad for the family that I have!
We are all a little crazy but thats what makes life fun!
I am so blessed to have 3 brothers that are all amazing
Preston, is serving a mission
Reed, is a senior in High School
Jed, is in 8th grade
they are all so awesome and I am so happy that I have such
great relationships with them.
My parents are so great! They are such a great support
for me! They have helped me so much and continue to do so,
I really could not ask for better.

I know that I already talked about my parents, But I have to single out my mom!
She is so awesome, and is really my best friend!
We always have the best time together, and since I am the only
girl, I am really grateful that I don't have to share her with anyone!

Fourth, I am so blessed to have such good friends.
Katelyn and Whitney have been my best friends since I was a
sophomore in high school. We have all been through a lot together;
break-ups, friends, arguements, moving, weddings, and much more
and through it all I am still so close to both of them, and I am so
happy to have 2 such amazing girls in my life...they are really like
my sisters!
Fifth, I am so blessed to have 3 amazing sister-in-laws;
Sheena, Amber, and Lindsay! Since I don't
have any sisters it is so much fun to have awesome
sister-in-laws! When ever we get together we have the best time
and they all really feel like my family, not just like my husband's family!
And, all of us had babies this year, so we are going to
be able to raise 4 little ones together, I am so excited to
make memories with them at the lake, family reunions, and other adventures!

2 Posts in 1 day...Strange!

Okay, so as just a side note, Landon and I are going on a little vacation in May to Las Vegas! We are really excited to go on a little vacation after he gets done with his PTA program, and I get finished with my medical transcription program! But anyway, I just wanted to know if any of you had any fun ideas of things to see, places to eat, or things that we just can't miss when we go! So if you could help with any ideas that would be awesome!

4 Months Already!!

I really can't believe that my little guy is 4 months old! He is so much fun! I just love being a Mom! Here are some fun things about my buddy boy--
  • He loves to smile...thats my favorite thing, in the morning when he wakes up I tell him good morning and he just smiles at me!
  • He is such a wiggler, when I put him to bed at night I have to put him towards the bottom of his crib, because in the morning he is all the way at the top!
  • He still loves sleeping on his stomach and tummy time! And he is a champ at rolling over!
  • He is grabbing on to all sorts of things when I hold him, its my hair! Anything that he can grab on to he puts in his I have to make sure that my hair isn't in his hand!
  • He loves his Dad! Anytime Landon is walking around the house and I am holding Hunter, he just follows him!
  • He is still such a GOOD baby! He only cries when he is hungry and sometimes tired!
  • He LOVES his bath, he has figured out how to splash with his legs and hands, and he smiles the whole time!
  • He also really likes to stand...I think that if he could he would want me to hold him in standing position all day!
  • His latest thing is that he has discovered the dogs, he will just look at them and then open his mouth wide when they are right by him, I really hope he isn't wanting to stick that in his mouth too!
    I love having such a cute happy baby, its so much fun! I just can't believe how fast time goes, it feels like I just had him!

Holiday Whirlwind...

Wow we have been so so busy these last couple of months! This is really the first chance I have had to sit down and update our blog! Hunter and I have been out of town for basically the whole month of December, just coming home for a few days here and there to do laundry and stuff like that, so it is nice to finally be home! Well we started our holidays in Idaho Falls with the Burt family for Thanksgving and my birthday, I went up a couple days before Thanksgiving and Landon had to come up the day of because he had work that morning, I will be so glad when May comes around so he wont have to work retail anymore! Anyway, that weekend one of my best friends, Katelyn got married. The wedding was sooo beautiful and so was Kate (I really loved her hair and her dress!), she really did look stunning! It was also a fun weekend because I got to spend the day with one of my other best friends Whitney! Its so fun to see them both when ever I can, we have been good friends since high school so we are really close!*Photos from April Highams camera

So that next weekend I went to Landon's extended family Christmas party, Landon could not come againg because of work, but Hunter and I made the trip to Logan! We had a really good time, I love Landon's family they are all such kind and good people! And I get along so well with my sister in-laws, we always have a blast when we get together! That weekend we also had Hunter's blessing and woulden't you know that I wouldn not take one picture of the whole day when I specifically remebered to put the camera in the diaper bag, but oh well there is nothing I can do about it now. Landon gave Hunter a beautiful blessing and we were able to have lots of friends and family there as well, it was a good day!

Well the next couple of weeks were filled with me going to Idaho Falls to shop for Christmas, and Hunter and I spending time with my family! It is so nice because whenever I go up to IF and I need someone to watch Hunter( I hate taking him out unless I have to, I really don't want to have a sick baby!) my little brother Jed will always watch him, and he is sooo good with him!

The 19th of December came around and Lindsay, Landon's younger sister had her baby. She had a few complications, but the baby and Lindsay were doing great after the delivery! And now all the babies in Landon's family are here! Hunter is going to LOVE having all of these cousins his same age, it will be good because he probably wont have a cousin on the Burt side for quite some time.

There is Lexie who is about six almost seven months, and Wyatt who is 5 months, Hunter who is 3 months and Grayson who is brand new!!! We are so happy all of them are healthy and happy babies!

For the week of Christmas, I again went up to Idaho Falls, (we should really just move there it would save us so much gas money!) my mom had the week off and we would not be there for Christmas so we hung out there for 2 days, and opened presents from my family and they were so generous, you know you are a grown up when you get baby formula for Christmas and that is you most favorite present! We got a ton of other great stuff too. Then we headed to Logan Christmas Eve night to be with Landon's family. We had such a fun time being with all of them, so much food such great presents and great company. This Christmas was my first Christmas being away from my family and I was kindof sad, but I had so much fun in Logan I didn't even think about it!

Here are some cute pictures of Hunter around Christmas time...he is getting so big so fast...its crazy!
