Boot-scoot Walking

Tonight, Kaylie has had a first. She has been trying to walk for the past couple of months, but she has had to hold onto someone to walk. Well tonight we finally got her to hold onto this lawn mower and she then spent the next 1/2 hour walking around our house with a big smile on her face. As a family we are so excited, this is her next step to independence.YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello to everyone. Sorry about not putting up any new posts for a very long time. The past couple months have been really busy and they have flown by. Everyone is doing great. Daniel keeps asking when he gets to go to school, and his imagination is soaring. Jeff is busy with work, but a good busy. Kaylie loves to get into anything and everything she is not supposed to. I know that is I don't hear her that I need to go running to she what she has gotten herself into. She is becoming very vocal. She can say mom, brother, dad, apple, up and red (for the horse at my uncle's farm). I am doing well, and loving life.

Kaylie loves music. One Sunday morning recently Kaylie and disappeared and gotten really quiet, so I took of running to look for her and found her dancing to the music on the tv. It was so cute to watch her. Hopefully any day now she will make up her mind that she wants to walk and then I will have video of her doing that, but unfortunately she is rather stubborn and would rather hold onto things and scoot than walk, even though she can do it very well.

Fall Leaves

The new house that we moved into this summer is surrounded by oaks, maples and a few other kinds of trees. During the summer our house was nice and cool, but now that fall is here, watch out!!!!!!!!!! It is raining LEAVES, and LEAVES and more LEAVES. Here are a few pictures of Daniel and Jeff playing in their work.

Where is Daniel, can anyone find him?

Daniel was able to have his own rake this year, and loved using as a rake and as a bulldozer, see video below.

Here is Daniel and a friend out bulldozing the leaves.

Halloween 2008

Halloween was really fun this year. Daniel got to dress up twice as two different characters, and he got to go trick or treating at a mall and in our neighborhood. For the 31st he wanted to be a lion. He had a blast that night handing candy out to the kids who came to our door. Every time the doorbell would ring he would yell "tick or treaters" at the top of his lungs.

Daniel also got to dress up as a pirate for our ward's fall festival. He went as a good Captain Hook.

Now Miss Kaylie only got to have one costume this year, but she was the cutest pumpkin I have every seen. I have know idea how Daniel ever fit into this costume, because he was several months older and quiet a bit bigger when he got to wear it. She had a good time and is enjoying all of Daniel's tootsie rolls he got.

I can't wait to see what next Halloween's costumes will be.

Kaylies Birthday--October

Now that Kaylie is 13 months old I thought I would put up her birthday pictures. She had a blast eating her chocolate cake. She now has an amazing sweet tooth. We had some friends over to eat cake and ice cream and had a blast.
