Taylor Family

This is the entire Taylor clan minus Landon (Jeff and Erin's son). I think we are not all destined to be photogenic. Especially since several of us hide from the camera every time it is pulled out.
Or you learn to take the picture at the starting instead of waiting until all the kids are tired and just "done".


Wyatt lost his 2 front teeth clear back in July. He still hasn't had any sign of new ones popping through. His cousin Halle also lost her teeth. These 2 could be twins. They have personalities that are almost identical. We joke that Heavenly Father knew he couldn't possibly trust 1 set of parents to be blessed with both of them, so he had to split them up. They are 2 months apart in age. Colby said it must be all the Taylor in them...but I swear it's more Goodliffe and Corbridge!

Funny story about Wyatt: We recently had our ward Primary program. Wyatt was assigned to sit right behind our Bishop who wears hearing aides. Wyatt was so proud that he knew the words to the songs they were singing that he sang/screamed them as loud as he could. Colby and I couldn't have been prouder to see our Bishop reach up and crank his hearing aide all the way down. He even got his own special invitation to join the ward choir and to sing a solo for the ward Christmas program. Unfortunately he refuses to do it!

It's great to be 8

Austin and Colby before his baptism.

We are so proud of Austin and the awesome son he is.

With Grandma and Grandpa Taylor leaving on their mission, Austin had to share his special day with Grady. It was such a neat day to witness Austin's baptism, confirmation and then to have Grady given a name and blessing. I love seeing the priesthood in action.

Our attempt at a family photo...not too successful.

18 months

We recently said goodbye for 18 months to my Mom and Dad. They are serving a mission in the Adriadic North Mission in Montenegro. We are so grateful for their example of service and following the promptings that our Heavenly Father gives to us. We have loved getting emails and text messages from them already.

We had a great Christmas!

We were able to visit Temple Square this year.

 We rode Frontrunner to Salt Lake and hit City Creek and the Visitor Centers before it even got dark. (Great way to avoid the large crowds!)

 This guy will do anything for his nieces!

We should have gotten her a bigger horse!

2013 was a great year for us! Now we can't wait to see what 2014 brings...

Some of the things we are looking forward in 2014:
- Jr. Jazz (Hayden)
-Losing more teeth (Austin and Wyatt)
-going on Trek (Colby and Mel)
-Grandma and Grandpa Taylor getting their mission call

Over a year

Over a year has gone by since I last posted. A lot has changed in our lives since then. A new home, a new school, a new ward, new callings, new friends, new teachers, new neighbors, new furniture, and never ending yard work. Life is good! This next week we will finish our birthdays for the year. Our kids are growing up faster than we want them to. They are still crazy silly kiddos as you can see from the picture. They participated in their first ever parade!
