Soooo... I am officially the WORST blogger on the planet. It's only been six or so months right? WELL..... To catch up we now live in Knoxville, TN we broke free of the nest! ( By an hour and a half) and our officially on our own. I am now a stay at home mom which i love, and appreciate every day i have to spend with her. Paul Is about to start school at The University of Tennessee, enrolling in the Air Force classes and what not. He also was very blessed to find a job within the very first week we moved out here. Besides the fact we are pretty sure Taylor may have flushed my wedding ring down the toilet, my glasses snapped in half, and Paul's jeep broke down all is well :) we are all healthy and happy. And as Paul says.. "at least we have love" lol He is right though. Though one car has been tough leaving me feeling stranded in the house 8 hours a day we find many ways to keep ourselves occupied without going outside into the 100 degree muggy weather. Macaroni necklaces toilet paper binoculars and lots of dance parties!! Well that's about it for now i will make a sincere effort to blog more... Promise :)

I have not had a chance to sit down and catch up everything that has been going on in FOREVER! for that i apologize! As much as i love to sit and type on the computer all day i really don't :)plus I'm not that great with punctuation and spelling and what not... so bear with me!
I have continued to work part time at papa Murphy though at times it feels like full time! I just got called to be the first counselor in the primary presidency, which should be an adventure in itself! I am basically just working on keeping up on everything and enjoying everyday i get to spend with Taylor we're B.F.F's. Paul is continuing to go to school full time at ETSU and working full time. Busy schedules leave hardly anytime for a social life for either of us! but maybe its better that way? Taylor started walking at about nine months, now she is basically running everywhere and has become quiet the little helper! Whenever i pick things up off the floor (only to find them back on the floor in .25 seconds) she always helps by picking them up and handing them to me! That's my girl! :)
Well from Halloween to now......well, Taylor loved dressing up and eating the candy that she could eat. Then before we knew it thanksgiving was here!Pretty laid back dinner at my parents house with Nana and papa! Then some black Friday shopping on my part. stood outside toys r us for two hours then spent another two hours in the store in line only to get home at around 2:30 with nothing in my hand, then went back at about nine o clock and everything i wanted was still there lol... NEVER AGAIN! Christmas was definitely a lot more fun with a baby! even though she didn't know it was Christmas we had a stocking for her and lots of little presents and made cake pops for Santa :)(new family tradition) The last year was filled with so many ups and downs we are looking forward to see what new adventures are to come this year! We sat down and made New years resolutions for us individually and as a family, and we are going to try our hardest to keep them! Fingers Crossed!

So, I finally learned to BLOG!I am only about one or two years behind everyone else but hey! I did it! I guess I am just supposed to write about the latest happenings in our family? Well, Taylor says three words, four if you count "nummmm" the other three being; Mama, Dada, and Nana. She is starting to use her little push walker and crawls and pulls herself up on EVERYTHING! Paul is working and going to school full time at ETSU here in good ol' Johnson City, TN. I work part time at Papa Murphy s, yes I am the girl behind the counter making YOUR pizzas lol unless it was bad then it wasn't me ;) Today we went and picked pumpkins! Pictures to come!! We took my brother and sister with us to the pumpkin patch. It was a quick trip because it was a little chilly. Paul and I hope to go back and battle the corn maze! It looked REALLY fun!
