My friend let me use her Cannon camera to take some shots of the girls. She took some too but I ended up taking over. It was fun using her camera. Can't wait until I get mine. Whenever that is?
There's too many cute picture so I'll post some here and there.

We went to the National Zoo for Boo at the Zoo with some friends. It was lots of fun.


Maylie walking to the next station for some candy. Don't you just love her costume?


Had a ward Halloween party. Did some trick or treating in the hallway of the church since it was raining outside.


I'm so cute!


When I was at work one evening Joe had the girls sleep in Maylie's bed. He didn't think it would last long but it did for about 20 min until Joe moved Taryn to her crib still sleeping. Now Taryn likes to take naps in Maylie's bed.

Butler's Orchard

Heading out to the field to pick our pumpkins. The girls loved the hayride.

Pretty in pink. Don't you think?


Taryn finally smiled for a picture. Too bad I couldn't get close enough to see it.


We'll have to go again next year to see the difference.


Playin in the caboose.

We went to Cox's Farm for a preschool field trip. We attended this last year and absolutely loved it . They have awesome slides, hay rides and you get to take home free apples and pumpkins.


Just playin around the wooden train.



First picture of the day and Maylie is smilling like she's scared.



Barbie came to Pottery Barn Kids today. I had Joe bring the girls in to meet Barbie. Maylie was nervous as you can tell in the picture so we had to do a family photo with Barbie. The girls got signed autographed sticker books and coloring books.

Maylie's big day! First day of preschool. She was so excitted to see all of her old friends and make new friends. There's a total of 7 kids. I get to teach once every 7 weeks. Can't beat that when it's free.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that.....

Gotta love the white buns.....
Now that Taryn is a little older, her and Maylie are playing better together. Well some of the time. I just love seeing them play together.
Outside our beach house in Outer Banks. Had a fabulous relaxing time. Can't wait to do it next year!

Maylie's first time on the go-carts.

Alright already........

My in laws were in town a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, now just posting about it. We headed to Williamsburg. Lots to see. Taryn is looking into the iron house. We watched them make a nut bolt. (whatever you call them).

This picture is actually outside the Library of Congress. Love this picture of the girls.
Love a man in steel.
We are sitting inside one of the ships that sailed to Yorktown. Can't remember the name of it.

Sisterly bonding time.
Taryn's feet are still cute even if they are wrinkly. Just got out of the tub. Washing up from swimming in the pool.
Taryn loves to give kisses even if your on the toilet.

Alright here's the story about why I have staples in my head. I've been making quiet books or file folder activities (whatever you want to call them) for the girls. Alot of cutting and laminating going on. I thought I had thrown away some pieces that were done. I had just taken out the garbage to the dumpster a couple of hours before. So in between the pouring down rain we were having cause of a storm Mandirae and I went down to grab the garbage to look through it. As we were looking the lid to the garbage can fell down on us. Now this lid is not plastic. It's so heavy that you have to lift it with two hands. Mandirae broke her nose and has had surgery since the accident a week ago today and is recovery fine. I got my staples out this morning and was finally able to wash my hair.


Maylie's last day of preschool this year. She didn't want to hold up her certificate instead she wanted to hold to balls with cats on them. I thought about putting her in preschool where you actually have to pay but decided to do joy school again. Teaching every 6 weeks isn't bad at all.

Okay it's been forever. I'll try to redeem myself here. The day finally came when we were able to go to Utah and see family. It always takes forever for the day to get here but when it's here it goes by too quick. It was alot of fun hanging out and playing games with everyone.

My niece Jodi, she's one smoken girl. Love you to death girl.
Maylie, Lainie and Grandma (mom) sitten around the fire pit roasting marshmallows, Mexican marshmallows. These marshmallows were huge. It takes 7 layers to get through them if you roast them the right way.
Mom, Me, Julia, Deidre, and Jennifer. Last time we had a picture like this it was my wedding. Time to update.
Went to Tucano's for lunch. Cody, Joe's little brother graduated from BYU Idaho. Congratulations again Codz!
The Peterson clan. It's always a blast when we get together. We're always the loudest group where ever we go.

How old are you.......

4. Maylie is about to say 4 when I took the picture. Can't believe it. I swear I just had her the other day. We love you so much Maylie Rae.

Here's the other Princess in the house.

We finally had the Pony Party! Maylie has been talking about it for years it seems like. Today we celebrated Maylie's 4th Birthday. (I know it's not her real birthday yet but we had no other time to do it). Even though it was a bit cold and we got a little wet from the rain, I think the kids had fun running around the park. Thanks for coming and all the presents everyone!


Here's the group that faced the not so good weather.
Yes, I made that cake. I'm pretty proud of it. It's my first cake ever. It was a lot of fun. Can't wait until next year.

My beautiful ballerina princess. Maylie is always wearing a ballet skirt and watching "Angelina Ballerina." So what do you think. Should we put her in Ballet class? We are hoping to do it soon. The cost for ballet classes are outrageous.

Why does the camera that I want have to be so darn expensive? I am hoping to purchase this baby sometime soon. There are so many cool places around here. If only I had a better camera. If anyone knows a better price than $1600.00 then let me know?

Patterson or Peterson?

Do we look alike or what? People say Taryn has the Patterson side in her. What do you think?

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Taryn's favorite place to eat food. She is always getting into the cupboard when I cook dinner.

Just eating my apple slices. I want to grow tall and strong.

I'm 1!

Can't believe it. Where has the time gone. Happy Birthday little miss. We love you so much.
It's not Christmas but I wanted to have Santa Clause's white beard.
I love my cup cake!
Here's your piece of the cup cake. Wishing all of you could be with me on my special day.
