How cute is this skirt?

Well, it's official, I have started a boutique! My sister, Courtney, and I have been busy making things for a craft fair we did at the Madison Jr. High. It was a great success! We were going to do the Rigby Craft Fair, but our sister, Jamie, got married that same day. Anyway, we have started a blog: It is still a work in progress, so be sure to check back often. We will be running specials and will have some awesome give-aways, so stay tuned! :o) Also, we are doing HOME PARTIES! We offer fabulous hostess rewards and are really excited about it. We bring our bows/flowers, ties, skirts, and dresses. Because we're cosmetologists, we will show fun, easy, and super cute hair styles and show different ways to accessorize with our products. These types of parties have been our biggest hit. But, if you would rather just have us come and display items only, we can do that too! Both parties have been successful. Please contact us for more information. Also, we accept CUSTOM ORDERS on all of our items. So, if you see something that you've gotta have, let us know! :o) And of course, we love feedback, so any tips, advise, or ideas you may have, please comment or contact us! If your interested in hosting a show before the holidays, please contact me soon as dates are filling up fast. I can send you an email with more info and what the hostess benefits are. Email me at:

Happy Halloween!

A couple of weeks ago, we had a couples only Halloween Party. We have lots of fun neighbors and we have been getting together each month for a party. This month was the Howard's turn to plan and it was a blast! We had yummy food, played fun games, which included musical chairs outside in the freezing cold. Great party, great company!! Can't wait for next month!

Burgess & April

Kris & Holly

Josh & Amanda
Us: Tagg's idea, by the way. He was Hannah Montana if you couldn't guess and I was her friend Lola.

Justin & Vanessa

Here is Londyn - our little "stinker". Isn't she the cutest?

I seriously love this costume! Thanks again mom for finding it!! It's been a hit so far, can't wait to show her off some more tomorrow for Halloween. I'll have to try and get a pic of Londyn crawling with this. The bottom of her feet have paws, so "stinkin" cute!! :o)

Couldn't resist - sorry babe! ;o)

Londyn's ONE!

AAHHHH!!! My baby is ONE!!! Well, she actually has been one now for a few weeks. I've got a million things on my plate right now, but I'll skip the excuses and just get straight to the fun we've been up to, and of course some pics. :o) Londyn turned one on the 25th of September. We started her morning off by getting some pics done by Katie Wells. We had this cute cake done by Violet's Custom Cakes and I guess Londyn thought it was too cute to dig into it. She took the little swirly ribbon off the top and that was pretty much the only part of the cake she ate.

Then we had a birthday party for her at the park with family and some neighborhood friends. It was so much fun! One of her favorite things she got was from the Howard's and Barnes', they got her this cute musical activity cruiser. She LOVES music and loves to scoot around and walk behind it. Here are some things I want to remember:

*Has four bottom teeth

*Signs: baby, more/eat (she thinks these mean the same), please, all done

*Says: mama, mom, dada, hi, and hi da (in a really cute high pitch voice)

*Took three steps by herself and will stand alone for a quick second or two :o)

*Blows kisses, waves hi and bye

*Puts her hands on her ears and shakes her head, as we say "I'm not listening"

*Loves Little Einsteins and will pat and raise her hands to the air when they do, then she'll crawl around in circles as they "blast off" and she says, vvrrrooom. Pretty funny to watch!

*Loves dancing and music, she'll see Tagg's phone and get super excited and will grab it and hand it to us until we turn on the music for her.

*When she wants something, she holds her hand out and says, "Ehh" -hard to describe in words, but it's pretty funny to hear her repeat it over and over until you figure out what she wants. Usually it is her binky or baby or some stuffed animal she sees at the store.

*She likes to "try" and put her socks and shoes on. She has also been putting my flip flops on one foot.

Londyn is very much a girly, girl. She loves her babies and stuffed animals and will sign "baby" by putting her hands on her chest and rocking her body back and forth - seriously, so cute! She has also been giving BIG hugs which are to die for! As you can tell, we can't get enough of her. She is still very cuddly and I still rock her to sleep for naps and bedtime. This is a routine I love and look forward too. She, of course, still has to rub her hands on my arms. She just has to touch my skin, even in the car, I have to reach back to her so she can hold or rub my hand. And, since I wrote this a week ago, Londyn has now taken 10 steps on her own. She's a very determined little thing. When she falls, she gets right back up and tries again. Won't be too long before we're running after her!

Oregon Coast vacation

We went to Portland for Labor Day weekend with Tagg's parents to visit Tagg's sister, Penny and her family. We had so much fun and even after the drive, are so glad we went! We went to the OMNI Max, Comedy Sportz Center, Saturday's Market, and even squeezed in time to go to Lincoln City so we could spend the day at the beach. It was BEAUTIFUL! The weather couldn't have been better considering it rained the first two days we were there. The Oregon Coast was nothing like I had imagined. Here are a few pics of our trip. Eric is a pro with his camera and thanks to him, we have some great pics! Londyn's first time to the ocean, the water was FREEZING, I'm not even kidding!!
Walking on the beach with Daddy. Don't you love her "squinty" face?

Londyn and her cousin Canon, he's only 5 months younger than her and already weighs more than her. He's slighly taller too, can you believe that? He's the cutest, chunkiest boy ever! And they both were so good! :o)

What would a trip to the beach be if you don't eat a little sand? :o)

No longer *Private*

So, I've decided to open up my blog and see how it goes. Some of my relatives and friends haven't been able to view our blog since I went Private with it, and I've been feeling bad about it. So, I'm just going to be extra careful on the personal info I put on here. :o)

11 months old

Where has this summer gone? I just realized I haven't posted once this month...and here it is the last day of August! Crazy! We have a had a fun, busy, and short summer. We went to Heber City, Utah for the Williams Family Reunion. Lots of fun and memories there! Like what the losers of Texas Hold 'em had to do...Lex singing on the train, trying to get everyone to join in. Chad yelling at him to "Shut up! And sit down!" Then Melissa riding a bike about 2 miles downhill with a Barbie helmet, saying "wheee!" and singing. And good 'ole Grandpa Jerry having to drive around the security gate a couple of times. And Logan asking if he could buy a blue wagon from someone's yard that was overly cluttered with "stuff". (we wondered if they were preparing for a yard sale and just never got around to pricing things) Ahh, good times!
Londyn turned 11 months old on the 25th. I know each month I say how crazy it is, but seriously, it goes by so fast! I'm just going to write some things that she's been doing so I can remember them. Londyn is walking around the furniture like crazy, but not walking on her own yet. She loves to dance, I kid you not. Tagg got to go to a Def Leppard/Poison/Cheap Trick concert, so he was listening to their music a lot. Londyn is hooked! She loves the sound of drums and starts head bopping to it. When we're driving, she'll be looking out the window and just start bouncing along to the music. She has also started to climb into her bouncer and hold onto the top of it, stand up, then start bouncing up and down. The vibrating button must be on, if you turn it off, she'll bounce for a second, stop, then reach down and turn it back on and begin the bouncing again. Hilarious to watch! She also loves to dance to Tagg's cell phone ringtones. She'll keep handing you the phone to turn it on so she can dance. I have loved seeing her comprehend things. She's pretty dang smart! She's been blowing kisses, giving kisses, and hugs, for a couple of months now. Recently, she's picked up on putting the phone or her hand to her ear and saying "hello?" She'll also put both hands to her ears and shake her head as you say, "I'm not listening". Of course, this is really cute now. :o) She has a serious love for dolls and stuffed animals. She'll see them and stick her hand out and say "Uhmmm". Then when you give it to her, she cuddles it and starts rocking back and forth, then hums to it. She also loves my mom's dog and neighbor's cat. Oh, and Tagg is pretty proud that she has taken an interest in playing ball. She loves bouncy balls and will crawl after it and then throw it, and crawl after it again. She especially loves doing this on the hardwood floor since it keep rolling. Or throwing it to my mom's dog, Meisha, because she'll go chase it and bring it back to Londyn. Some milestones to remember:
*First time in a boat at Heber City (fell asleep the whole time on the boat)
*First time on a 4-wheeler (put you in a carrier and you fell asleep the whole ride)
*Got your third tooth, bottom (now have three bottom teeth, and the fourth bottom coming in)
*Got babysat by Holly (first time being left with a babysitter as mom and dad went to the Temple)
*Actually, got babysat three times (Holly, Jalyce, and Jan) in a week! After mommy hadn't left you with anyone, but daddy!
*First word, mom :o)
*Understanding the word more, and starting to say it
*Attached to mommy, especially when tired
*Loves to play in mom and dad's bed in the morning, especially to crawl up on daddy to wake him up! (He is so not a morning person!)
*Pats to Little Einsteins when the Rocket is about to take off
I wish I could write just how much personality this little girl has! She is a character and we couldn't love her more!

Londyn dancing

Londyn is 10 months old today! I can't believe it...two more months and she'll be ONE!! AAHH! She loves this activity table. She'll open and close it a million times and flip the page, and just start dancing. She is climbing up on things now, but I'm in no hurry for her to start walking. :o) I'll post some fun pics tomorrow, she's quite the character! She'll hear our cell ring and start dancing, actually, whenever she hears music, she dances. We think it's pretty funny. She's also started pointing at things. It's amazing how much they learn in such a short time.

Going Private

After much thought, I've decided to go private with my blog. There are some crazy people out there and I can't imagine anything happening to my baby!! I know we are in a little "safe" town, but you just never know. There have been a few incidents where total strangers have said they've seen my blog or seen pics of Londyn, via someone else's blog. It just gives me a creepy feeling sometimes. I know that I may lose some contact with people, but I figured better safe than sorry. Plus, I have a Facebook account and so does Tagg, so people can look us up there where we don't have so much personal info. So, if you would like to follow our blog, please leave your email address so I can add you. Even if you just look in on us from time to time, we'd love to stay in contact with you (unless you're creepy and crazy) haha

Pics of Lou & exciting news

Londyn was such a trooper this weekend! We went to Cedar City, Utah for the Utah Summer Games. Tagg and his brother, Chad took their team they play on and we had a blast! We sat through 6 games in 3 days. Londyn did great, she even slept through some of the games. She usually only cries when she's really tired, or falls off the bed! (Tagg took his eyes off her for two seconds...that's all it takes) Anyway, she is so much fun. As you can tell in the last pic, she is still pretty serious, and we've learned that she's very curious! Her personality is coming out more and more, and we are loving it! She dances (bounces) whenever she hears music, laughs when she purposely drops things and you try and catch it before it hits the floor, crawls all over, loves dogs and kids, and has recently loved babies and babydolls.

Now for some other fun news...I have started making and selling hair bows! I made the ones Londyn is wearing in these pics and lots more. I need to post them...just haven't found the time. I have also "reserved" a seperate blog, but haven't updated anything on it yet. I'll post the address when I have things up and going. I also do custom orders, so let me know if you'd like any or want more info. :o)

A new look

I finally did it, after talking about for 8 months...I cut my hair off! Initially, I was planning on only cutting a couple of inches off, maybe 6 in. But, I decided that if I was going to cut it, I might as well do a complete style change. So, 13 inches later...what do ya think? I haven't had it short for 4 years, nor a swoop bang, so this is all new to me. But I love it! I'm so glad I did it, it's so refreshing! :o) Don't mind Londyn...she just woke up and I hate taking pics of just me!

8 months old!

What have we been up to the last month? Well, my brother, Tyson got married in Phoenix on April 24th. This was Londyn's first Airplane ride and she did great! As we were getting off our flight, an older couple told us they didn't even know she was on there. Londyn had fun looking around at all the people. She's so curious! This is just before we boarded the flight.
We flew with my parents and Jamie and Jalyce. Londyn enjoyed going back and forth between all of us before the flight took off. Then, she slept for most the flight.
Tagg was a Groomsman and was pretty hot stuff! :o) Tyson and Meghan had a beautiful wedding, great food, and dancing! It was a blast. Tagg even got to have Londyn's first dance. So cute! I wish I would have got pics of my nephew Adler dancing. He went up to the D.J. and requested "Low" by Flo Rida (a.k.a. Apple bottom jeans). Then, Adler danced the entire song doing his sweet Ninja moves, turtle shell spin, penguin slide, and various break moves! The photographers were LOVING him! After the song, I asked Adler if he had fun and if he was scared. He just said, "I think everybody liked my dance. They kept taking pictures so I kept doing it." Too funny! I'll have to see if we can get a video on here, it's hilarious! Anyway, it was a short trip and we loved being in AZ. It was so warm, but not too hot yet. We didn't want to come back to the freezing cold, that's for sure!
And last but not least...Londyn is 8 months old today! Crazy!! She is so fun! She is so close to crawling. When she's sitting, she gets into this position, with one leg back and starts scooting and lunging forward. Then when she's on her tummy, she gets into position and starts bouncing. She will move her hands forward and then does a nice face plant or lets out this "ugh" sound from landing right on her tummy. :o) She is also teething, not so fun. She got the first bottom tooth at 7 1/2 months, now the other bottom is making it's way. I hate the fever, running nose, clingyness, and whinning that comes along with teething. But do you blame her? Poor little girl.
I am covering for a girl at work while she's on Maternity Leave. Luckily, they are letting me bring Londyn. I must admit though, it's a lot of work being back full-time and having a busy baby there! I feel so bad for her cuz she gets pretty bored. It's supposed to only be for 2 weeks, but I haven't heard if that's still the case. Londyn's been a trooper. Some other things she's doing is waving hi and buh-bye and giving kisses, slobber and all. Love it! She plays peek-a-boo and you can tell her to dance, and she'll start bouncing. ADORABLE!!

My first blanket!

Well, I did it! I finally bought a sewing maching, picked out material, and made my first baby blanket! I wanted the rag style, just bigger squares, and something bright for Spring/Summer. I really liked how it turned out. Thank you Jan for helping me! Oh, and doesn't Londyn look so cute in yellow? Can't get enough of her!! When I was taking these pics, she kept grabbing at her new blanket and trying to play peek-a-boo, too cute!

Easter fun

Aren't these rollers so cute? My Aunt Johni said we should just go out on the town with them in. :o) I forgot to take a pic of what her hair looked like afterwards, oops! Just add it to my to-do list.
Londyn on Easter morning. We got her this cute Fisher Price Zoo thing with cute little animals and a learning table. These were/are big hits! She loves to clank the animals together, swing the monkey so he makes noise, opens and closes the "computer" on the learning table, and we just sit and watch and laugh. It's great family fun!
This is Londyn in her Easter dress. She has so many cute Spring/Summer dresses, it was hard to decide which one to put her in. This is her learning table, we left off the legs though, since she can't stand on her own yet. Londyn is 7 months old. I know I always say that the time is flying, but it really is. She has started rocking back on her hands and knees and rolls all over. I'll have to post some more pics - it's so cute! She's pretty busy, and with crawling around the corner, I can only imagine the things she'll discover! She's very curious too. We spent Easter Saturday at the Williams' and had a fun Easter Egg Hunt and just enjoyed dinner and visiting with the fam. Jerry was showing the grandkids how he trained his dog to catch a frisby, so we were out watching and out of the blue, Londyn just started laughing! It was so funny. She would laugh everytime Bo would jump up and catch it. Then, we went to my mom's for Easter Sunday. It was nice to have a quiet day with just us, my parents, and two little sister's. And of course, another yummy dinner!
