It's Christmas Time!!!


Hi Guys,

Wow it has been a while and we have been up to so much! We don't even know where to begin. Last month we got to go to Tampa for Thanksgiving to visit with all of our family and friends that we don't get to see too often. Mom and dad bundled us up when we left for the airport since we left during a "Blizzard". When we got off the plane we had to start shedding the layers since it was a nice warm 85 degrees! Quite a change from all the snow we left behind. We had so much fun trying new foods and visiting with all our friends.

We have been trying lots of new things lately. We had a play date at discovery gateway where we got to try out all sorts of new toys. Mom says that we need to grow a little taller so that our legs actually touch the ground when we try all the "ride on" toys. We can hardly wait until we get to go back again.


The last "new" thing that we got to do was visit with Santa. We got to sit on his lap and tell him how good we have been this year. We wonder what he will bring us on Christmas morning.

Construction


Hey Everybody, We thought we would update you on what's been going on. As most of you know we moved into a new house, although we haven't been able to explore most of it since it is under construction. We got to have a sleepover at our grandma and grandpas house and even took a bath in their kitchen sink. We have visited a lot of new stores that we haven't ever been to before looking at things like sinks, toilets, wood, granite etc. Taylee and I found something that we thought we would really like. What do you think?

It's not too early to start potty training is it?

We think this would be a nice set up for our bathroom.

Love to all,

Elle & Taylee

Happy Halloween


Hi Guys! Boy have we had a busy weekend. This Halloween business is pretty fun. We got to see all sorts of people dressed in funny clothes. Our grandma was even dressed up as a skeleton. We got to wear our little lady bug costumes and go visit daddy at work and even went to go to grandma's work to see all of her friends. All of that candy sure looked good. Last night we went and visited some of mom and dad's friends, but it was cold and raining so we didn't stay out too late. Well got to run!

Love,

Elle & Taylee

Pumpkin Patch




Hey guys! Taylee here. Just wanted to update you on what we have been up to. Today we went with some of friends to Wheeler Farm to the "Pumpkin Patch". We had so much fun picking out our pumpkins and going for a hayride. We especially liked kicking our legs in the dirt while our mom was taking our pictures.

We also went to see Dr. Charlie for our 9 month check up yesterday. Dr. Charlie said that we are growing really good. I am a little bit bigger than my sister Elle. I am 27" long and Elle is 26 3/4" long. I weighed in at 16 lbs and 12 oz and Elle was 16 lbs 1 oz. We all know that Elle is the "drama queen" but she sure made that known after she had her flu shot. I was trying to figure out what her deal was since I didn't cry at all. I guess I am just the tougher of the two of us. Well I guess I am off to a nap.

Love,

Taylee

New House




Hey everybody. Sorry it has been so long since we have updated you all on what is going on. We moved to a new house. We are really excited to be in our new place. Dad tells us staying in our new house is kind of like camping since we can only stay in the basement. We have had lots of people "tearing apart" the upstairs. I sure am glad we can still nap through all that noise. The construction guys say that it is easy to tear it apart, it is the putting it back together that takes all the time. We are hoping that it will be done by Christmas.


Here is a picture of what our upstairs is looking like.

Can you believe that we are already 9 months old! Time flies when you are having a good time. We go and see Dr. Charlie in a few weeks so we will let you know how we are doing.

Thanks Aunt Sharon for our cute Gator outfits!

Love,

Elle & Taylee

New Tooth!



Hey everyone! It's me Taylee. I wanted to let you know that I got my first tooth this week. Since I am the "little sister" I always like to point out what I do before my "older sister" Elle.

As you all know, we are very computer savvy and have been able to type for some time, but we also started saying our first words. Elle likes to say Ma Ma which makes my mom really happy, but really she just means that she wants food! That girl loves to eat! I decided I didn't want my dad to feel bad so my first word is Da Da. Well thats all for now. We are busy packing to move to our new house. We will update you on our new "crib" soon!


Love,

Taylee

Summer Update!

Hey Everyone,

Boy have we been busy! I guess it is time to let you know what we have been up to over the last month. Mom and dad thought that it was time that we started getting into shape, so we put on these cool pink running shoes and went out for a jog.


We had so much fun that we decided to run our first 10k on Pioneer Day (July 24). It was fun to go so fast! We got to run with our grandpa, mom, dad, and our cousin Alex.
We especially liked eating the bagels at the end of the race.

Next we decided to take up golf, so we headed to Mesquite to have a fun weekend of pool time, golfing, and bowling. We really liked swimming on the kick boards.




Don't worry, we didn't really ride in the basket!


We also got to spend a few weekends with Mama Jean and papa at the cabin in Alta, WY. We have had lots of rides in daddy's airplane. Good thing we are such good passengers!

Taylee Jean with Mama Jean!

Well we will try to do better keeping you updated on what we have been up to.

Love,

Elle & Taylee

Carrots

Well, I guess my mom didn't get it that I don't like carrots. I mean, the first time they seemed ok, and the next time I gagged...twice! So here she is trying to give me some nasty carrots again. I hope she finally gets it.

6 months old






Hey Everyone! Elle here. Can you believe the my sister and I are half a year old. Things sure have changed a lot since we were born and we sure enjoy exploring our surroundings.

Look at how much bigger we are compared to when we were first born.

Mom and Dad took Taylee and I to see Dr. Charlie last night. We really like him. He lets us play with his stethoscope and tongue depressors and even gave us a book to take home with us. He said we are doing really good and are growing just like we should be. My sister Taylee is a little bit bigger than me. She is 25 inches long and 14 lbs 10 oz. I am a little shorter and lighter (24 3/4 inches 14 lbs 5 oz) but not by much.

We really like trying new foods. Some of our favorites are sweet potatoes and bananas. We also really like to chew on baguettes.


Taylee finally taught me how to roll over and once I figured it out I rolled both ways in the same day. I finally convinced Taylee how much fun it is to stand up. We really feel like big girls when we are standing. We are also gettting really close to sitting up all by ourself. We can make it about 1 minute before we topple over.


Well we are off to take a nap so that we can have fun playing this afternoon.

Love,

Elle

Happy 4th of July

Hey Everyone, We hope you all had a good 4th of July. Elle and I got to fly up to Driggs to visit Mama Jean and Papa at the cabin. We had a good time, although we fell asleep before the fireworks. Maybe we will be able to stay awake next year. We had so much fun!

I'm not so sure how I feel about this grass touching my leg!

Thanks for letting us come and visit!

Love,

Taylee

Our Big Adventure





Hey everyone,

Taylee and I just got back from our latest big adventure. Daddy decided that it would be fun to fly our airplane all the way from Salt Lake City to Florida. Our mommy wasn't so sure how that was going to be. We are talking 10 hours each way in the plane.

You know that Taylee and I are always up for some fun so we thought we would give it a try. We had to do a lot to get ready for the flight. We got our own set of headphones so that the noise didn't hurt our ears. Our dad had to figure out how to make our car seats work so that we could sit looking forward and we even took a test flight around town to make sure we were going to do all right. So after all our "flight training" we were off to see some of our family at the beach in Florida. It took us 2 days to get there and we did great. Our mommy sure was glad to be on the ground when we landed in Gainesville. We are not sure what the big deal was because we slept through the whole deal, but we got soaked getting out of the plane. The picture of the weather on the radar screen sure looks pretty.

We got to spend the day with Mama Jean and Pa Pa before we drove to the beach. Once we got there, we got to meet up some of our aunts and uncles and lots of cousins. We had so much fun.

We can hardly wait until next year!

Love,

Elle
