Pumpkin patch

We had a pumpkin patch here on base last Friday. Kaylin LOVED riding on the "choo choo". It was actually a tractor and trailor.

We told her "okay, go get a pumpkin!" She just took off and ran and ran. We finally had to stop her and tell her to get a pumpkin.
After this picture she put the pumpkin down and tried to start running again towards the "choo choo". She didn't care too much about the pumpkin or candy, she just wanted to ride the tractor.

Base Housing...

Here's a few pics of our house....well actually just 2. First is our living room...behind the couch where I'm standing is where the computer desk is. The front door is also behind me.
It was raining again today (like it does pretty much everyday) so I couldn't take a pic of the outside of our house but this picture is of the houses (or condos...whatever you wanna call them) across the street. Our house is identical to those except the siding is tan and our door and shutters are navy blue.
Our Kitchen. I'm standing in the dining room. We did get really lucky to get this house! We are the first ones to live here so everything is fresh and new. There's also a half bathroom downstairs and upstairs there's 2 more bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and a laundry closet. Maybe I'll take some pics upstairs when I get the girls' rooms decorated.

More random pics

Our big ole hunkin' moving van that Nathan drove almost 1400 miles....I followed him in my car....and 2 and half VERY LONG days later, we were here.
Taylor Ann....she is so fun right now! She's laughing and smiling all the time! She's rolling from back to front and trying to figure out how to go back to front. She's been sleeping pretty good too...only waking up once at about 3:00 am to eat.
Most the time Kaylin is pretty good with her but in an instant she can go from this to poking Taylor's eye or sitting on her or pinching her. I can't completely trust her yet. It is so fun to watch them interact tho!
Kaylin throwing a fit....I'm loving these terrible two's. Her and the corner are becoming very close friends.

Kaylin turned 2 on the 12th! I can't believe two years have gone by already! Here's some pics of her opening her presents from my mom and dad.
She's obsessed with Elmo right this movie has been a life saver to me!
Stickers! Almost as obsessed with stickers as she is with Elmo!
Pop Rocks!! mom just HAD to see what Kaylin did when she ate them. It was pretty funny. They also gave her a book and $...I'm sure I'm forgetting something...that bag was FULL! Thanks Mom and Dad!
Here they are watching the craziness on Skype! Skype is awesome! Kaylin got a play kitchen and cleaning toys from us...its so cute watching her play with it! AND I found both items at a garage sale for $15!!!!

I was gonna upload a video but its taking FOREVER so I'll try again later.

Taylor's Blessing

Nathan was finally able to bless Taylor before we left. He gave her a beautiful blessing. He said she was just staring at him the whole time and smiling (and farting).

I'm so grateful for these sweet spirits that Heavenly Father has trusted us with. I pray every day that I'll be able to be the mom they deserve.

Louisiana Living

'We went to Toledo Bend last Saturday...its a big lake that's about 30 min. away from us. It was really nice.
Nathan tried to do some fishing.

We walked around a lot on their nice walking trails. The weather is pretty crazy here....mostly its been hot and humid but for a couple days it was pretty chilly! This day was one of those days.

Kaylin walking Rufus. We got Rufus a couple weeks ago. Kaylin loves him! We got him for free even though he comes from a championship line because the breeder we got him from thought his face looked funny and his paws were webbed or something crazy like that...he looks perfect to us!

Kaylin thought it would be a good idea to eat sand....a little snack before the ride home I guess!

I guess it's time...

I've run out of excuses for not updating my here I am...and I promised Nathan I would blog while he was gone for the next 4 days. I really don't even know where to start. But I guess I'll start with the Grand Canyon....we finally went for the first time after living in AZ our whole lives. It was awesome! I'm so glad we went!
This is a little hogan doorway...perfect for me...not so perfect for Nathan. (anyone ever noticed our 1 foot and 1 inch height difference? kinda hard to miss and it actually looks like a little more then that in this pic)'s our crazy Asian experience! These people were OBSESSED with Kaylin!!! It was unbelievable! Seriously! They were taking pictures of her and talking to her (in Chinese...or whatever it was...we couldn't never figure it out) for about 45 min! And I'm not even exaggerating!
They kept finding us when we went to a new place and would want more pictures with her!
Then this guy wanted pictures with me! So if you find these pics any place other then my blog...PLEASE let me know!

Taylor trying a cold drink at Red Lobster on our way to the Grand Canyon.
She's so stinking cute!!!
