Latest Happenings!

It has been way too long since the last post. I am the enrichment leader in my ward and yesterday was our super activity, so I have been pretty busy with that. Blogging hasn't been the only thing that seemed to go undone. I felt like I needed to introduce myself to my kids this morning. They have been shuffled around all week. Jared has been awesome with picking up the slack with the kids and house. Thank you so much.
I need to post about so many things that I don't know where to start.
*Traxton turned four months old yesterday. He weighed 13 lb 1 oz on his Dr visit and was 23 inches long. He rolled over from his belly to back the other day, but has only done it a few time since. He hates to be on his belly, so I haven't made him very much. He seems to be getting big way too fast. He has started jabbering a lot more and loves to tell us "stories". He also loves to smile, which always makes me smile. *Treyson has turned into quite the big brother. He loves being by Traxton and wants him to sleep in his bed with him. He is always so loving and soft around him. I can't wait to see how the two of them will interact when Traxton gets a little older. *Ashten had to go to the dentist this week to have her "sugar bug" fixed. My mom works at the dentist so it has always been such a fun place to go. Ashten has had her teeth cleaned a few times, but this time she had a filling put in and I'm not sure if her attitude about "grandma's work" will ever be the same. They gave her the gas to help her relax and she did so well. Towards the end she started getting wiggly, but I was really impressed with how she handled it. The gas made her really giggly, so it was funny to watch. After it was all over and done, Ashten was really frustrated with her face not waking up. She apparently scratched her chin to wake it up so hard that now she has a huge scrape. It looks so bad that everyone asks her what happened. I can't believe we have to say that she was trying to get her face to wake back up. I just hope it doesn't scar too bad. Well that is it. Now everyone can get off my case about posting. :) Enjoy.

Home Grown Pumpkins!

Ashten told her Grandpa Taylor that he needed to grow some pumpkins in his garden for her. He is so cute with his little grandkids that he did just that. We went over to his garden in Santa Clara last week and got as many pumpkins as we could carry. They aren't very big, but are perfect to be displayed around my scarecrow. The kids had a blast picking out their pumpkins. Thanks grandpa Taylor.
