Gone 'til September...

Gone 'til September, Gone 'til September, tell my girl I'll be gone 'til September.
(used to be one of my favorite songs!!!) :)
Oh my gosh, I'm slipping farther and farther behind on this blogging thing! I thought September was good and done, but I was looking through some pictures and found some more!
We had our friends, Melina & Jayded from our branch over to play one day while their mom and dad were packing up their house to move! (staying in Spokane, just bought a new house.) The kids were outside playing and Tucker came running in to the kitchen screaming MOM MOM MOM!!! I seriously thought that someone had died. Then he said ICE CREAM TRUCK!!! And sure enough it was right in front of our house. I'm not sure how I missed it, but anyway, I thought it would be a fun end of summer treat. (The DISH guy who happened to be at our house installing dish actually paid for our ice creams, but that is a whole different story! He was at our house for about 45 minutes making sure it was all set up ok, and in that 45 minutes, he bought us ice-cream, showed us about 5 home videos of his family on his I-pad and he sweeped my kitchen for me when Jayden woke up from his nap and I had to abandon my kitchen cleaning to get him from the crib. I was worried at one point that he might try and kill me, but he ended up being the nicest man ever. I still made sure the kids were outside playing while he was inside installing the dish.)

Taylor also started a little co-op play group with some friends from our old ward. It is so fun for her to go every Friday to a friends house. She calls it her school and thinks she is pretty big girl!!!

Trying real hard to ignore me...

I wanted to get a picture of her cute legs and feet and she kneeled down and said, 'no mommy, I up here!'
That means one Friday a month, my house looks like this:
(which I don't mind!) :)
Her and her buddy Drew... 
I put on a show for the first few minutes to calm down one of the crying girls, and I came in a few seconds later and for some reason Taylor and Drew were watching the TV this close!

Cirriculum night at the school with the teacher. Found this in the hallway...
Oh yea, and Ben and I celebrated 9 years of marriage. That's kind of a big deal! :) We actually went to Red Robin with my family that day for lunch to celebrate my dad getting his braces off! :)
I did a lot of this:
I took the kids to the park with me while I did a photo shoot for my sister and her family. The kids, once again, had fun on the stage...

But we got some good shots of this gorgeous girl:
Speaking of this girl. Taylor loves to have a little one younger than her to boss around/play with:

And Ben and the kids are still obsessed with these darn cats! YUCK!

What's with the obsession with mustaches lately??? :)

Cute pic of Kenzie. I hope it's not all crappy and rainy when we try to get our pictures done! And cute little yellow pants of Taylor's too. :)

I am interested in hearing the story of why the dish man paid for your ice cream??? Love Taylors long hair. She's a cutie!
