Photo Shoot!

My mom signed up to get a free service from someone in the ward in return for her to organize a room for someone.  We got the opportunity for a free photo shoot with Megan Klug. She was awesome and we loved how fun she was. Here are some that we got back.

 I have to write this down because I thought it was so funny. The picture of me and Taylor hugging we were laughing so hard because the Photographer, Megan , Said, "Taylor lift up your foot!" (She thought I was Taylor) Taylor started laughing and said, " What??!! You want me to lift up my foot?"  Maybe it was a "you had to be there" thing, but the whole experience was so fun and we loved it. If anyone needs their pictures done she is the girl to call Megan Klug.

Fut Fugget Moment

Bear and Bella Loved the merry-go-round so much so that Bear had a complete break down after we got off. Yes that is him lying all by himself on the concrete courtyard at the park. We finally went and picked him up after we got a few looks from the audience. The  walk back to the car he was kicking and screaming the whole way. Before I had kids I really would have thought the kid was getting kidnapped, but it's funny once you're a mom you have a complete understanding for anything that happens anywhere at anytime.

We went to the Train Park in really need to take your kids if you have not been there. Our family loves going. We went on a train ride and a merry-go-round.  Bear was not in the best of moods due to fatigue and hunger.  Tay chased him all over the park.    I am all about your kid being nice, but this is how it went. We were taking a picture of Bear and we didn't know how it turned out so in the 5 seconds we were reviewing the picture we took this  man came and yelled (with a rather gay voice), "Hey!! How bout you watch your kid throwing sand on my son!!!" Tay and I were just in a state of awe. I mostly wanted to just laugh at him considering his kid was like 8-10 years old and his dad was more bothered by the sand than the son seemed to care and Bear only had time to throw it once.  I thought Tay wouldn't recover to quickly because he just picked up Bear and went to climb a tree. It was funny and awkward to just sit back and watch. Oh well, I hope we make it back around Christmas for the lights! 

I had such a good time with my parents in Gilbert over Thanksgiving. In fact, it was amazing! The weather was beautiful and we even went out to dinner. We went to Olive Garden. I loved every serving of my unlimited soup and salad. My kids behaved like heaven sent angels. I sat and ate the whole time. I never got up once to chase a kid or bounce Bella. This is just such a rare occasion I had to write about it! Thanks mother for buying our just added to my night:) JAna, Kelli and Kyle I am sad you guys weren't there! 
Have I mentioned Bear's obsession with Masks? He refuses to wear them and makes everyone else wear them. It's a quirky tick he has.  Bella was a good participant for him though, Tay and I usually act like the mask won't fit or else we would wear it all night

Taylor's ENORMOUS familia

Look at how many people are in this picture! It is already outdated with Karlee's baby boy and Kira's.  Its always a party at the Tenney's House!
Taylor made Bear's dreams come true and he dressed like his hero SPIDERMAN. If Taylor ever took off the mask Bear FREAKS out. Not like he complains-he has a down right break down.  He has an obsession with Masks. I always have to hide them because he makes everyone wear them!

Bella has him wrapped around her little finger...

Introducing Bella

I had Bella April 12, 2008.  She is the sweetest baby.  She just smiles at Bear while he is trying to hit her.  Bella is our little angel. Tay and I cannot get enough of her. Bear loves her too especially when no one is looking.

Barrett loved Easter! He ran so fast during the Easter Egg hunt. Tay right before was telling me we should have practiced with him so he would know what to do, but man he ran down those eggs. He colored them too, but it was easy to tell he thought that was sort of sissy compared to the hunt.

Goofy Kid

It's crazy when your kid gets just as excited about Cafe Rio as you.


Barrett and Taylor Loved the Zoo! Bear just blew the monkey's kisses all day!

Labor Day

I have had a best friend since 4th grade...Bridget Bluth! She came to visit me in Sept. on Labor Day. Congrats on getting married Bee!!!

Bapa's Boy

Barrett loves his Bapa. Down at my parents he loves mowing the lawn with my dad even when its 100 degrees. Taylor and I were looking out the window when we noticed he fell asleep while he was hard at work helping Bapa. He is Bapa's Vato.

My boys

Taylor and Barrett are the best spooners. They love taking naps together.

Taylor's Birthday!

Taylor had a fun birthday! Barrett was more than happy to help Taylor blow out his candles! Taylor and I even got to go to the movies for his birthday which is usually a twice a year thing...once on his and once on mine.


We got Bear out of the house to go sledding with the Taylor's & Genet's. Bear is probably too young to know it was supposed to be fun.

Christmas with the Barrett's

It was Christmas at the Barrett's and we couldn't find Bear anywhere so the next question was, "Where's Bapa?!" And of course there he was crashing Bapa's nap with some cousins.

Reuniting with Friends!

I finally got to see my good friends from high school. We all happened to be in Gilbert the day after Christmas.

Christmas Morning!

The Tenney's wake up pretty early so it was hard to get a happy picture of Barrett especially since he hates Santa.
Taylor and I wanted to start keeping a journal about whats going on in our lives and have updated pictures for family and friends. I hope I can keep up on this new year's resolution! I am a little late getting started, but it's better late than never!
