Have you ever wondered why we are always told to be like our little ones? Well today as I was running some arrands Bryan asked me if I wanted to hear him sing a song about Jesus. So I said sure, Bryan is always making up his own songs about everything, sometimes I admit i have so many things going through my mind that i don't always listen. Today I did. This is what he was singing....." I love Jesus, I want to be like Jesus, so I can have his power. I listen to the Prophets so I don't get lost. But when I do Jesus is always with me. I love Jesus....." He kept going on and on. But really wow. I mean It really makes me wonder how much they know and again I realize why they are so special. I am definatly blessed to have them in my life.

Today is Tayela 2nd Birthday! I cannot believe that she is already 2! I just wanted to post some pictures of her to show everyone just how fun this girlie is. So the picture of her with the pink glasses.........she loves them. We found them at our old rental house. I think she could pull off that look. Don't you? The next one.....well this is how she helps me "fold" the laundry. she puts on as much clothing as she can. This time she decided to go for a "toga" look. Again she pulled off the look. LOL. And it took forever to get her untangled out of all those clothes! Then the last two are of this morning. We make birthday pancakes with candles.....she loved it and had no problem blowing the candles out! (notice in all of these pictures....her lovely hair dew. i promise I do her hair she just gets home and pulls it out.....then of course we get these crazy fros!) We Love you so much Tayela......... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Well I guess when you have a comment as vague as I was about having good news you get a wide variety of responses. No I am not pregnant. I just had a baby in January, so a little to soon for that one. However my husband decided that it was time to get a bigger car to haul everyone around with and so we got a new car. It is a Mercury Mountaineer. It is a nice car. We have more than enough room for everyone and Bryan and Tayela have enjoyed sitting in the back seat. It seams to fit our family and financial needs. However it does have a few cool things that came with it. Leather seats and those seat warmers. I haven't tried it out but it sounded cool. An automatic seat adjuster thing. So if I push a button the seat moves to my length and if Scott gets in he can auto adjust to where he likes it. It is a cool feature because once you get the seat where you like it someone else drives the car and adjusts everything and you can never find that spot again. So that is all the good news.

So Tayela's birthday is in about a week and a half and Grandma and Grandpa James sent her a birthday card. In it was 2$ for Tayela cuz she's 2. And then 40$ for me to go shopping for G-ma James to get Tayela what she needed. So that is what I did. I got her 4 shirts, a pair of capri pants, and a Dress with this cute little sweater,and a bow, and 2 giant Flowers to decorate her room. So thanks G-ma and G-pa for that and I think that we spent it well.
So for other things........nothing to exciting......okay there is but I can't tell yet so you all just have to wait. Anyways the kids let me take pics of them to see if we could get some good ones for our wall. Okay so I am not a photographer.... but the kids make them look cute anyways.
And last but not least................... Happy Birthday Tori!!!!!! (tomorrow) You are the coolest littlest sister ever! I hope you have had a awesome 17 years! I love you and hope that you have a great day! And the kiddos say "HAppy BiRthday TOE!!!!"
