 Oh dear, can you guess?  Think Star Wars!  He did a Stars Wars Dinner Play and this is what he came up with.  Silly guy!  You have to have lots of confidence to wear this!

GiGi's Photo Shoot fall 2011

While Spencer and I were in Hawaii, Gigi and Grandpa Drew were watching the kids for us.  They even had to get them ready for school pictures!  And then they did their own photo shoot.  Taylor, 3rd grade.  McKay, 1st grade!  Love these two!

it's great to be eight

Last September Taylor turned 8!  What a special birthday it was!  Taylor is such a delightful blessing to us.  She has a natural desire to be helpful and obedient.  She is funny, sweet, friendly, smiley, kind, loving, beautiful, and smart!  Happy birthday to my big-girl Taylor. 
(I can't believe we have an eight year old! Wow!)

 Her baptism was special.  She had both of her grandmother's give talks.  They did a great job.  The love of God was felt in that room.  We were surrounded by so many close family and friends.

Looking back at these pictures from nine months ago, Taylor and I look so different!  We've both grown so much since the big day!  School is out now and she will be a fourth-grader next year!
