The last few weeks Tayler has discovered the ingenuity of markers. Unlike crayons or pencils, they will draw on everything. I thought I had learned my lesson when I found her with a permanent marker 2 weeks ago in which she had drawn on her socks and her face. The next week she found some permanent markers at my moms house and took a few swipes at her face again. I thought that I had all the markers out of reach until just now. I was reading an email and realized Tayler wasn't around or making any noise which always means trouble. I should have gone right then to find her, but finished my email and at the end I heard her say "Marker!" I ran and found her on the stairs just as the photos look. I guess my one blessing so far is that she really only cares to draw on herself at this point! Oh the joys of parenthood!

O.K., O.K.....so maybe it WASN'T so hard to find the comment bar!!! (You just have a dense mommy, I guess.) Looks like Taters is definitely a right-hander; just compare the number of stripes on the right cheek as opposed to the left!

How funny she colors on her face! Noah's more into smearing food all over his face right now. The video is hilarious, the little wheels just turning behind those eyes :) What a cutie and a great talker too. How are you surviving Loren being gone? Is it feeling like home a bit more? Hope we get to come see it! Love you all!

Congratulations you guys!!!! I don't think I told you how excited we are for you expecting baby #2!!! And I have to admit I'm rolling on the floor right now about Tayler. She is so adorable!! I think she must be getting in lots of "make-up" practice. LOL!

This is LaRene (yes, your cousin)
I have a sick little girl sleeping so I'm blog reading at home today and had so much fun reading your blog. Congratulations on #2 coming and graduating! So where do you live now? Payson H.S., I guess I don't know where that is. That's exciting you're a coach! Steven just finished up track this year (he does the 2 and 1 mile). fun stuff.
Anyway, just thought I'd say hi and that it was fun reading what's going on with you.
