Kalen’s Ballet Class

Kalen has started a Creative Movement (ballet) class at church. It is SOOOOO cute to see her all dressed up in her leotard and tights.


And the bun! It’s just too much!


She is taking the class with 2 little friends too.


How cute are they??


They love it. I love all the giggles as they are walking to class. I am so glad that Kalen is finally able to be involved with something too. She was feeling a little left out when Tyler had soccer.

Oh, I have a blog?

Oh, yeah, this old thing! Kinda have forgotten about it the past few months. Well we have been super busy since Tyler started school and this little one has momma super tired!


“For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him” -1 Samuel 1:27

It was so fun to see the baby moving, or swimming as Kalen says, all around. We went in for a scan a few weeks later than normal so we saw hands, feet, eyes, everything! It is truly a miracle how the Lord forms these little ones in your womb. The difference from week 8 to week 10 is AMAZING!!! This scan is from last week when the baby was measuring 12 weeks. I had a little scare, but everything is just fine now!

The due date is March 28th and we are hoping that it will indeed be a March baby. All mine have been late, so we will see. And NO we will not be finding out the gender. Mike and I both LOVE the surprise in the delivery room!

So that is what has been going on in the Taylor household. I am working on getting some pictures off my camera and onto the blog. Winking smile

Tyler’s First Day of Kindergarten

Where has my little boy gone?! This one is all grown up and ready for Kindergarten!


Tyler was SO excited for school this morning! He was a little slow with chores, but after that he couldn’t wait to get to school.


We had family pictures at the school before and I snapped another quick photo of Tyler.


Then all the families gathered inside for a little ceremony. It was great! All the dad’s stood behind the teachers to symbolize that the dad’s were the authority. “By obeying your teacher you are obeying your dad’s, by learning from your teacher you are learning from your dad’s.”


Then we prayed and sent the children off with their teachers! Tyler has Mrs. Appleton this year!


And his best buddy Jonah is in his class too!


Mommy kept it together and Tyler was sure to give me hugs and kisses before he left. Smile


We are looking forward to a great year! I am excited to be involved with Tyler’s school. I get to be his teacher at home on Monday’s and Wednesday’s.

Slip Slidin Away

What’s summer without some slip n’ slidin!




This was Kalen’s first time to try it! She was a little hesitant at first, but got into it real quick!






I loved all the silly faces!






They would yell “Look out beeelllooooowwww” the whole way down!




I have a feeling we will be pulling the slip n’ slide out again! They had a blast!



Hope you all are having a great summer!

Soccer Star

Last week’s challenge for Last Scrapper Standing was to create a layout that is not square, is using 2.5 x 3.5 or smaller photos, and has at least one hand made flower on it. This is what I came up with:

Soccer Star

This was so fun! I’ve never done a star layout before, but I think it turned out super cute! Tyler loves it! I have it displayed in his room for now Smile.

Have you made any different shaped layouts before?

Last Scrapper Standing

I recently went onto the Memorable Season’s board and found out they were doing another Last Scrapper Standing challenge. I decided to play along! The first challenge was to make a layout with an embellie cluster, a non-scrappy item for an embellishment, and not to use theme pattern paper for theme photos.
I got out the Sweet Peach April kit and made this layout!
little model
My non-scrappy item(s) is the flower by the title punched out of leftover pieces from a sewing pattern and a rolled flower from leftover fabric scraps. I had just been sewing an outfit for Kalen, so I made use of the leftovers! Smile
I was so excited to see that I made it though that round! I am looking forward to Week #2.

Happy Father’s Day

to a wonderful husband and father!


Daddy got the kids dressed for church that morning and without even realizing it he coordinated them very well! Smile


We had a great day celebrating our Father’s! We went to church, then rested a little bit in the afternoon (Mike’s favorite part of the day), and then headed to Grandpa & Grandma’s house for dinner and dessert!

Fun at the Playground

We love going to the playground during the summer (when it’s not too, too hot)!

This boy can do the monkey bars all by himself this year!


And this little girl loves the slide!

Sweet Peach – June Reveal

Sweet Peach Crop Shop has two more gorgeous kits this month! The Sweet Featured kit is fun and full of color, perfect for summer pictures!


The Juicy kit is called “Time to Fire Up the Grill!” I love it! This is the kit I created with this month!


The minute I saw the contents of this kit it reminded me of one of Kalen’s dresses that I made for her! I knew I had to make a layout with this picture! The little hanger clip is the perfect embellishment for this page!

Kalen's New Dress

A simple page about Tyler at Easter last year. He didn’t want to stay still or look at me for pictures, he was too busy finding eggs! Smile

Tyler at Easter

I just love this layout of the cousins on Grandma’s swing. So sweet! (It was amazing that we got them all to sit still and look in the same direction!)


Then I made a Father’s Day card!

#1 Dad

The idea gallery for June has just been updated over at Sweet Peach! I always love seeing everyone’s layouts and how they used the kit items! So be sure to stop on by, you will be inspired! Smile
