KaileeJo had her friends Carter, and Kaden over to make gingerbread (grahmcracker) houses. They all turned out really cute. KaileeJo had a hard time not eating a lot of the candy, but was really excited to put some on the house. They did such a good job. The only way I could convince KaileeJo not to eat it was to tell her that she needed to show daddy when he got home.
The side of the house with some snow men.
More playing outside with daddy!
We pulled a heart shape with the sled in the snow!
Taydom making snow Angels
Going for a ride in the sled.
Today wan't bitter cold so we took the girls out in the snow. Taydom got to come because it got up to 15 today and we found the snowsuit. Taydom had a lot of fun making the snow angels as you can see. She also loved being pulled in the sled with her big sister. I figure it takes just about as long to get ready to go outside as we are outside but it is still fun.

The front view from the street.
Our cars in our large driveway. Note the basketball hoop.
The back of the house.
Our backyard from our house looking back. We love the 5 1/2 foot fence that fully encloses the yard. It is a little hard to tell but it is about 1/2 an acre with 3 apple trees, 2 apricot trees, 2 plum trees, 2 cherry trees (that don't produce yet) a grape vine, a peach tree (that doesn't produce yet) and a swing set with swings and a slide. The shed in the back is lined with shelves and is great for storage. We love our house and maybe some day we will post pictures of the inside. Inside there are three rooms we uses as bedrooms, an office, a toy room, two bathrooms, kitchen, living room, laundry area, and storage under the stairs. It is plenty big for our family. We feel so blessed to have such a nice place to live.

She fell asleep eating dinner. What a cutie!
Taydom was plaing one morning and some how she got turned around in our entertainment center. Before I took the picture she was whining because she would try to sit up straight and she would hit her head. I pulled out the camera and all I got was smiles!!
How can you not love this kid?

This is KaileeJo our little elephant. She thought that it was fun to jump around in her costume.
This is our little Lion Taydom. We even got her to roar at us. She is too cute.
This is at our wards Halloween party. KaileeJo is showing off her costume.
KaileeJo didn't want to have her picture taken so it was all Taydom.

We carved pumpkins for Family Home Evening on monday. KaileeJo had a great time. She thought the insides were slimy and had a good time coloring on the outside. I just cut out the holes where her lines connected. Taydom thought the tops looked like food and tried to eat them only to be disapointed when it didn't taste very good.

KaileeJo turned two on September 27th. We had a little party with Grandma and Grandpa Finlayson, Great Grandma West, and some friends. We had a great time! The cake was made by Grandma and Great Grandma. They did such a good job. KaileeJo got a ton of great gifts and has a hard time choosing what to play with first. It was wonderful to have the family together for such a happy occasion. Even aunt Lizzy made an appearance later that day.

We had our first snow since we moved to Pocatello. KaileeJo thought it was great. She loves to play outside and loves to eat ice so you put those two together and she is in heaven. Taydom wasn't to impressed. She thought it was cold and would much rather be inside, especially if the wind is blowing. It has since melted away but we know there is much more where that came from.

Taydom just learned her first word!! And it is...."dada"!! Even with all the practice of mama it still came out dada. She also likes to say "yeah", so I guess I shouldn't be surprised with dada. She is growing soo fast!! She loves to scoot around and gets to where ever she wants. She likes to stand with a lot of support cause she thinks she is soo big. We just love having Taydom in our lives. She is such a joy with her smiley personality and giggles that never stop. WE LOVE YOU TAYDOM!!

KaileeJo is learning soo much. Her vocabulary is getting bigger every day. She loves to read stories. She loves to be read to, to read to her sister or even by herself. I hope that this isn't just a phase that she is going through because it is wonderful!!

Here is a picture of Taydom with her cousin Benjamin. They are 3 and a half months apart. Taydom was very interested in the little baby.
She has been carrying around chapstick. She is such a girly girl.
Taydom is getting soo BIG. She was weighed the other day and she has broke the 20 lbs mark. She was 20 pounds 2 oz. She is super smiley and love attention from her big sister. Even when it may be painful she still loves it.
