A Very Merry Christmas

We had a great Christmas with way too much food and presents. Taysen had a lot more fun this year getting into presents and playing with his cousins. We feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family.

Future Fisherman

Taysen got the cutest fishing vest and hat for Christmas. I'll have to get a better picture up soon because these don't do it justice. It is exactly like an adult vest he is ready to go fishing Gramps!

John Deere

Cousin Eastyn got a John Deere tractor for Christmas. I have to say it was one of Taysen's favorite toys haha. Luckily his cousin is small enough that he lets Taysen ride it for now.

New Trike

Taysen got his first trike from Santa this year. He loves being pushed around on it and hopefully in not to long he will learn how to pedal himself around. He also loves the tassles that hang from the handlebars.

Little Helper

Here are some pictures of Taysen helping his Great Grandma out with the swiffer vac. We didn't turn his on so he just made the noises himself.

Decorating the Tree

We decided we'd help out decorating this year and so while Tamara was gone we tried to start decorating the tree. Unfortunately we couldn't find the lights so we had to wait til she got home anyway, but it was a lot of fun to all help out with the decorating. Taysen really enjoyed trying to put ornaments on the tree and he sure was a help on the ladder when Amy was putting up the lights. We tried to get Taysen to say Ho Ho Ho to all the Santa's on the tree but his version was similar to what he says for a dog.

Dirty Chef

Here are some pictures of Taysen over the Christmas Break at the Hawkins house. He has a love of cooking if you can't tell and one night while Tamara and I were busy working on a Young Womens project Taysen somehow slipped off our radar (right behind me) and started cooking with the plant dirt. Needless to say he had a great time, but we couldn't figure out how he had gotten so much without us even noticing!

Happy Holidays

We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hopefully we'll be able to keep you posted a little better as the new year comes. I promise to get some pictures up of Taysen soon. We want all our friends and family to know how much we care about you. I recently read a book called Christmas Jars it was a good one and really got you in the spirit of giving this holiday season. I hope we can all be grateful for what we have and help those who need it. Happy Holidays!

Crazy Days

Once again it seems we are falling behind on this little blog of ours. I promise to get up our halloween pictures as soon as I can scrounge them up. We have had an eventful past month. Taysen and I went to Vernal to visit while Tim went on a golf trip and what was supposed to be a weekend turned into a month long visit. I ended up finishing up my real estate license and getting Kidney stones...what fun! After weeks of pain and waiting the decision was made to get the stone removed and get it over with, What the doctor said would be a pretty painless event turned out to be horribly painful. After removing the kidney stone they put a stent in place to help with any scar damage and they removed that yesturday another thing that was supposed to be relatively painless (WASN'T) Today is going pretty well though with getting back to normal a little bit. Oh and during all our excitement Taysen got pink eye and now has a cold. Tim has been a real trooper letting us come home and taking care of all our problems. Taysen can't stand it when daddy leaves the room and is snuggling up with him all the time. Anyway now that these events are hopefully winding down I will soon get up some new pictures from our recents adventures.

Taysens First Birthday Party

Click on the picture to take you to the whole album.

Taysen 1st Birthday

We had a wonderful Birthday party it truly started off with a bang. We were making homemade rootbeer and I must have put the lid on a little too much so the pressure started building and well next thing we know the lid blew off it sounded like a bomb, the lid hit the ceiling and rootbeer was everywhere. Holy cow! We had the party at Tim's parents house where we were happily living and now missing. It was a zoo themed party that was lots of fun. Hope you enjoy the pictures sorry there are so many but ya know a kids first birthday only comes once. Now to finish off the night Taysen ate his first cake and ice cream and as you can see it was all over him. We had to get him straight to the bath and not to let the day end without a bang he decided to poo in the tub to finish off the mess. Our little boy sure is growing up and turning into a little character.

Alright Sorry I haven't been up on the blogging. I have to admit it has been a little crazy getting back to school and all the moves that have come with it. We are now happily getting settled into a townhome that we are renting and loving it. It has an extra bedroom so come on down and visit (hint hint)So far only Tim's mom has taken us up on that one and it was a lot of fun. She has been such a big help to us and Taysen might be a little attached as well. He didn't even want her to go in the restroom while she was there. Tim is busy with golf and school and trying to make it all work with what will hopefully be his last year of school YEAH! We have pictures to post, but I'll have to relearn how to do that one. So come back and we'll get em up soon.

Eating Adventures

Taysen is quite the little boy. He curiously tries to take a taste of everything. A month ago I was in the bathroom getting ready while he played on the floor. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a spider go by in the hall. Taysen turned and headed for it. How he saw it I don't know. He went crawling after this spider as fast as he could to catch it, but I thought there was no way he would catch up to it, but little did I know next time I look over he is putting something in his mouth. All I could think was he couldn't have, but sure enough I went to open his mouth to discover a slightly chewed spider in his mouth. Disgusting!! Just when I thought that it couldn't get worse...
We had a nice dinner of chinese for my dad's birthday and a yummy cold stone cake to follow. After that Tim decided to go play on the grass with Taysen while Dad visited on the phone with Amy's kids. I warned him to just make sure that Taysen didn't get by any dog poop. Sure enough a few minutes later Tim comes over carrying him "You'll never believe what your son just ate" as a green brown substance is dripping out of his mouth all over his shirt. Yep sure enough he had gotten a chunk of dog poo that was hidden down in the grass..DISGUSTING!!

Taysen 10 Months

These are Taysen at 10 months..He's growing up so fast. He now has conquered going up and down the stairs and makes sure he does it as often as he can. He loves to go up a few steps and turn around and wave and say "Ba,ba" (bye bye) He's a goof!

I had to include this picture because Taysen was trying to come eat a dandelion. In an attempt to take his pictures by myself I was trying everything to get him to smile. I tried blowing the seeds off an old dandelion, he thought it was great and he also thought it would be a great snack.

Tim's Birthday

Tim has turned the big 24. He has been wanting a scooter since he got home from his mission and although I was tempted to give him one this year the money just wasn't there so I made him a scooter cake instead. Close enough right? We had a great day and celebrated with a barbeque at Papa's house.

Taysen 9 Months

This is our crazy boy Taysen for his 9 month picture. I got fed up with the whole wal-mart photography that is available here so we decided we'd try to take his monthly pictures ourselves...Grandma and Grandpa Hawkins luckily have some great areas for pictures so its worked out okay so far.
