Taryn Turns Three! Whee!

 After much deliberation Taryn decided that a Captain America party was the thing for her. She is very anti-princess right now and refuses princess stickers at the library, free wands from the store, and wont wear anything that might seem too girly. She wants to impress her older brothers I think.

 Note the Captain America plush doll (she picked for herself) and shirt (from G and G Berry). She also got a bunch of fun stuff for the bathtub and a new winter coat! Thanks to everyone who sent cards and money!

 Here is the Olaf fleece blanket intended to replace the "heart blankie."

 Making a wish...and she told us she wished for a cupcake. Well, that wish came true, go figure!

Three cupcakes for an awesome 3 year old. Happy Birthday you cutie pie. We all love you!
Taryn with her Captain America earrings that Bree, Rudd, and Revree gave her. Wearing her Capt. America earrings gets us out of her needing to wear the shirt every. stinkin. day. Thank goodness. :) The little animals were from our next door neighbor friends.

Home Life in October

 Taryn and Watts. Sadly, Watts is moving next week and Taryn will have to find a new best friend. I am so sad, and have no idea how we will convince Taryn to go to Nursery anymore.

 Taryn had to give up her heart blanket. It was her favorite blankie to hold and cherish and love, and we needed it GONE! It was gross and starting to drive me nuts because it was always everywhere I stepped. We replaced it with a bigger, stay-in-your-bed, Olaf fleece that she can sleep with. The transition was actually very smooth.
Random: but to make a long story short, Taryn's interpretation of what a toot is = a burp in her pants. We all laughed for awhile about that one!
 Halloween sugar cookie decorating. Always messy, always fun, always delicious.

 We were trying to capture the essence of Ainsley's eating faces. We didn't quite get the one that is my favorite and super funny, but here are a few others.

 Favorite after school activity as of late: basketball. We've had some fun family basketball games lately. It's fun that they are getting old enough to play against. Pretty soon, I'm sure, they will be better than me!


 Yes, this happened. It may or may not have been because Sidney and I targeted and TP'ed another family a couple months back. I can't wait to get them again, and maybe a few other people as well.

Oldies, but goodies...

 To prove that Landon and Nathan went on many a motorcycling trip together while he was home during the summer. Nate and Landon took me out another time and I biffed it and BADLY banged up and bruised my shin. Holy crap that hurt for days!!! I told them they needed to find me a little bit less aggressive trails to ride on. I also saw a black bear cross the street right in front of my van while I was waiting for Landon and Nate to come back from a ride. That was cool and freaky all at the same time.
 This is record of me beating Nathan in bowling on one of our dates (this never happens). The next picture is of me being blown out of the water by Nathan on the next game. I wouldn't even let him document how bad my score was. Every game I get progressively worse. :(

 Yes, that is a spider that Nate put on Quaid's face and yes, it is dead. Gross. I can't believe his parents ever let him come back to our house. This was the same night that the boys got to have some friends over for a bonfire and smores. They wrestled on the tramp and goofed off into all hours of the night. I believe Sawyer, Rig, Quaid, Rafe, and David came that night.

 I love you too Nate!

 Taryn being beautiful!
