Daisy's first masterpieces

A friend of mine posted some pictures of her daughter (same age as Daisy) on Facebook of her fingerpainting. I thought that was SUCH a good idea! I hadn't tried with Daisy yet, so we decided this morning to give it a go!

Here she is just starting out....


Not quite sure what to do....


Hmmm this might be kind of cool....


I think she had fun!




Messy girl!


All cleaned up!


Her very first masterpiece!

Happy Birthday, Peyton Cayde!






Oooh man! My baby boy is 4 years old today! (He's currently fishing with Taryn and Papa....)



He is SUCH a big kid now! He's 43lbs and 39inches (I think). His hair is super blonde and his eyes are crystal blue. He's kinda ghost white like his mama :) He's full of energy, fiesty, stands his ground. He is the puzzle master! That kid can kick anyone's butt putting a puzzle together.

His favorite food is macaroni and cheese and (dinosaur shaped) chicken nuggets. He loves pork chops and strawberry milk.

Peyton is a very loving, very touchy feely, sweet, caring boy. He's rough and destructive sometimes, too....but he's full of hugs and kisses and willing to share them with everyone!

We celebrated his birthday by having a CARS themed birthday party here at the house. Some of our friends and some of his friends came and ate and had cake and brought him some awesome presents! He was happy to share and celebrate with everyone.

Peyton was born at 4:30am on June 26th, 2007. He decided to come before Dr. Pang made it into the room, so the nurses delivered him. He was 8lbs 3oz and 20.5in long. His hair was light blonde at first, but turned to red shortly after being born. His eyes have always been blue.

We love you Boogie, you'll always be our baby boy! Happy Birthday!

I love baby books

LOTS of stuff in Taryn's book!


Taryn's baby book.



Peyton's baby book.


I kept Peyton's a little more organized than Taryn's.



Just SOME of the stuff I've written in Daisy's, haha.


Daisy's baby book.



I remember looking through mine when I was a teenager. I loved reding everything that was written in there. Somehow my baby book was lost, so I doubt I'll ever get to see it again, but I still remember what it looks like!

I just updated the kids' books last night in bed. I write SO much in them, but I don't care. I hope one day they'll enjoy reading through them. I try to write things like their favorite foods at certain ages and what size clothes/shoes they wear. I like to put their favorite tv shows and colors and cartoon character. I write about how their school year has gone, what new things they've learned, exciting adventures they've gone on, and who their best friend is at the time.

Every time I write in them, I go back and read stuff about the day we brought them home from the hospital or what tooth they got first. I can't get enough....

Crock pot lunch

Today I tried out a crock pot recipe. I suck at cooking, so thought this would be easy. It was.

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 big jar of Pace medium salsa
salt and pepper

Cut the chicken breasts in two. Pour the salsa over the chicken. Add a little salt and pepper. Cook on low for 5 hours. Take the chicken out, shred it up, put it back in for 30 minutes.

I made soft tacos with it. Tyler even liked it! It was yummmmmy!

Future superstar

Taryn is the coolest little kid! His imagination is amazing. He LOVES to entertain and is damn good at it, too!

This is a song he called The Prehistoric Shark.

Boo boo

Ok, we were dropping Peyton off at Joe and Helen's house because his baseball game is at 6:25 here in town and Taryn's was at 5:30 in Eureka. She was going to take him to his game and we would get there a couple minutes late.

I walk out her office doors, Peyton holds the door for me (awww). He slides his butt and hands across the door and goes inside...and SMASHES his pinky finger in the part by the hinges.

I had no idea he did it. I walked to the truck and Tyler freaks out and starts pointing back at Peyt. I ran over there and Helen was out there holding his hand. Peyton never made a sound, so I didn't know what happened. I feel like shit for not knowing.

I took him to the ER because his finger was already turning purple-ish. My neice cut the tip of my nephews finger off in the bedroom door, so that's immediately where my mind went.

The dr. did some xrays and iced it. Nothing is broken, just bruised really bad and there's a small cut. They were SO good with him. Everyone at the hospital kept him calm, gave him stickers, and let him help as much as possible. I appreciate that SO much.

I feel like the worst mom in the world. :(

Go Littlebacks!

Peyton Cayde


Peyton was not having it tonight. He really just didn't want to play, so he played for awhile and then we left. His coach was late, so the game was going to be cut short anyways. He hit the ball though!

Mosquitoes love me

and I hate mosquitoes.

My arms are all messed up. I have bites all over them and they itch!!

I HATE MOSQUITOES with a passion!

I really need to buy something, some spray or something.

Why don't they eat up anyone else like they do me?

Leave me alone, stupid mosquitoes!

Swimming at Grandma and Papa's

Taryn underwater.

Taryn man and Daisy.

Peyton jumping in!

Me and Daisy swimming.

Daisy and Peyton swimming.

Daisy playing with the water balls in the pool.


We have been swimming a couple times at Helen and Joe's, lately. The kids just love to be in the water. Taryn is doing so much better this year. He swims underwater now! He needs to work on plugging his nose while he swims, but he'll get it soon. Peyton still wears floaties on his arms, but he's doing better about keeping his mouth shut so he doesn't swallow as much water. He is a fish! Daisy LOVES the water. She loves to splash and kick her legs and drink it :/ She doesn't care for the floaty thing though. She'd rather me hold her the whole time. But, she's fun in the water, so I don't mind.

I have an awful sunburn on my shoulders, so I've been trying to keep them out of the sun.

Saturday Rambles

Daisy saw the dr. yesterday for her 1 year check up. She's 30in and 22.9lbs. She's fallen off the curve a little as far as weight, but neither I or the dr. are concerned. I know she eats/drinks plenty, so I'll leave it to the fact that she's grown an inch.

We spent the day puking. Daisy and I had a HORRIBLE stomach bug. It was BAD. I'm still sitting here with the worst headache ever, but I'll take this over puking and shitting my brains out. Daisy was fine as of this morning. Peyton has a cough and a runny nose, but feels well enough to be at Grandma and Papa's.

Peyton missed his first Tball game on Friday because he didn't feel well. That and we were sick and it was like 90 degrees outside. I didn't want to go and neither did he. Can you blame him?

Taryn's first Parent Pitch game is on Monday. That should be fun! If it's not too hot out.

I have spent all day watching The Secret Life of the American Teenager. I'm addicted.
