Goal failed

Well, it's been a couple of seeks now since I quite doing pictures everyday. Once the kids started school and dealing with homework and cakes and I go into work once a week now...it just became too much. But, I did recently quit cakes so I should have more time to blog but I will have to attempt the every day in a year thing maybe next year. So, here are pictures of the last several weeks...

 My brother bought me a bunch of infused olive oils for my birthday. So cool!
 My kids made themselves some stingers. They are a creative bunch.
 Finally got a new phone! Iphone that is. I am super stoked!

 I attempted making my own detergent. I don't know if I bombed or if that's how it's supposed to turn out but I'm NOT loving it.

 My helper sanding down a project for me.
 Every kid has done this in this exact chair. Love her!
 He lost this side tooth at costco one day. He kept hollering about losing his tooth. He greatly amused the older couple behind us. So much so, they gave me a $2 bill to pay for his tooth fairy. It was quite funny.
 When she's cranky, I've been giving her a sucker. I think she likes it.
 Went to sunsplash. We had SO much fun!
 This girl was unbelievably fearless.
 She did good all things considered.
 Bahama bucks on our way back.
 First day of school!
 My big first grader!
 My kindergartener. Boo hoo!
 My new dream table!
 Crab legs birthday dinner.
 Birthday party! Everyone brought their best dessert. Holy awesome!
How did I miss this girls 9 month picture? This was taken 2 days late! aaaaaaaa! And it's not a good one at that. Sorry miss May. My life has been crazy busy but this girl is just my little sweetheart. She makes our little family happy every single day!

More kids club 200 7/20/13


Forgot to post these so I'll put them here. We love the free carousel ride!

Hair 201 7/21/13

This looked better before church but she allowed me to put 6 rubber bands in her hair. She enjoys getting dolled up. Oh, and something else worth mentioning that she says a lot is "silly Harlee". Glad I've trained her to tell herself that when she makes a mistake. She says it for me too. "silly mommy". It's so cute.

Traci Baby shower 199 7/19/13

My mom and I did a baby shower for Traci. It was a mustache theme. It was so cute and fun! Can't wait now to meet Gunner!

Kids club 198 7/18/13

The kids are sure enjoying kids club. I had almost forgotten about it.

Public pool time 197 7/17/13


Took the kids to Brimhall. This was their favorite part. Jaxon even did a flip. They were the smallest and most excited kids out there. It took about 3 or 4 jumps to get to the point that the life guard didn't have to explain the rules anymore. But they finally learned. Harlee and Mayzee were pleasant as well. It was a fun day.

Eiffle Tower cookies 196 7/16/13

Jaxon decided this was an awesome day for this one thing we did. Easy to please.

Family day 195 7/15/13



Had a fun family day at San Tan mall. Splash pads and Despicable Me 2.

Giggles 194 7/14/13

This is Mayzee's favorite game

Jaxon the BIG brother 193 7/13/13

I can't get him to stop picking her up. He even carries her up and down the stairs (eek). He just loves being the big brother and he is ever so sweet to this girl. He helps me out a lot.

Mayzee 8 months 192 7/12/13

Oh this girl! She's got two teeth. Scoots around. Not so good a napper. Sleeps decent from 8-4/5ish. Needs lot's of attention. Sitting up. Eating on her own. Loves to eat almost anything. Has the sweetest and softest giggle I have ever heard (when she actually gives the effort to giggle). Kicks wildly when excited (usually when I am coming to pick her up). Has an ear piercing scream. And boy I couldn't love her more. 

Fruit trees 191 7/11/13

Loving our fig and peach trees!!

Buddies 190 7/10/13

I have a feeling these two are going to be little buds. They are only a month apart.

Swimming 189 7/9/13

 I got some fantastic water pictures this day. The top picture is belly flops. They kept slapping down in the water. How does it not hurt them>?





Summer reading program 188 7/8/13

The kids were very excited to get their free books in the mail for the summer reading program. We read a lot of books to earn these! Grateful they love reading so much!

Ryker's talk 187 7/7/13

It shocks me how shy this boy can be. We only made it half way through his talk and he just wouldn't say anymore. It was hard not to feel embarrassed. But it was also a little my fault. We hadn't worked very hard on it. BUT also, he is always so excited to speak in primary. I was just a little surprised.

P!NK 186 7/6/13

I am a big fan of Pink as is Harlee. She is always singing this song. I love it!

Awkward 185 7/5/13


4th 184 7/4/13

Had a fun night with some friends. I am so happy we can do our own fireworks show. The kids look forward to the tents going up semiannually.

Happy time 183 7/3/13

This is when being a mom rocks. I don't know which kid is happier. Love hearing the giggles. Just the music my heart yearns for.

Pony 182 7/2/13

What's this on my head mama?

Crazies 181 7/1/13


Pandora 180 6/29/13

The kids are engrossed in "watching" Pandora play music. I guess they are desperate to watch anything. Ha ha!

Grandparents time 181 6/30/13

Kids enjoying some reading time with grandma and grandpa Taylor.

Water dogs 179 6/28/13

We have been pet free for a while now and the kids and Brian have just been tortured at the thought of having no animals. So he went and bought them water dogs. Apparently they are low maintenance and I don't have to clean their poop. We shall see. They turn into salamanders. It is the first thing Jaxon thinks about when we wakes up and the last thing he thinks about at bedtime. He has not been able to stop talking about them. It's hilarious and not annoying at all. :)
