2 Taylors +1 = 3 Taylors

Although it came as a bit of a surprise (we were planning on end of December or January), we were ecstatic when we found out we were going to be adding a new little one to our family. Mr. Taylor couldn't believe the first test I took so he went and bought two more and sure enough they were positive just like the first. November 4 is when we are expecting their arrival. We can't wait!

Spreading the News!

We went Camping over Easter to Topaz mountain with my family and there is where I wanted to tell them. I had searched high and low for cute ideas to tell family we're pregnant and I think I found a cute one. My parents had to find eggs and unscramble the word puzzle sharing the news. It goes "Our excitement cannot be matched for in November a new little Taylor will hatch". I was nervous to see what they'd say, but they were very excited for us. My Omi started crying because she was so excited. She said "Oh, this means I'm going to be a greatgrandma!" We also did this with the Taylors and the whole family found it together. I loved that we got to tell them over easter. I love the timing of our first baby even if it weren't planned. Baby, you are going to be a very loved little one. We're all excited to see you!

Tasia's Birthday Tea Party

My sweet sister-in-law Beth planned this Adorable Birthday Tea Party for me and her Darling Sister Megan's Birthday. I walked in and saw how much time she put into the decorating and I couldn't wait to see what she had in store for the food. She is such an amazing cook! We started with Tea and Crumpets (or deluctible desserts) and then moved on to the main course!

Wow! Doesn't that look delicious! Phenomenal Pork Tenderloin, Gourmet Macaroni and Cheese with Awesome Asparagus was what we all got to enjoy this evening. My mom (thanks for coming mom!) along with a bunch of other wonderful friends came! We got to enjoy a role play by Tamera T. and Mary about the gossip going on around town (you'd have to be there :-) while savoring this fantastic dish! See what I mean! I was in great company! And we even had a real English Woman for our Tea Party (lovely to meet you Naomi). There were plenty of laughs and I think we all had a great time!
To top things off Sweet Sarah made Lemon Poppyseed muffins (Scott loved that) to which they put candles in them and they all sang Happy Birthday to the two of us! I'm so lucky to have the same birthday as such a beautiful girl as Megan Smailes!

Here we all are looking top notch for our perfect evening! I used an old dress that I never used for High School Dances, while the Francom Sisters dazzled us with their dos, and Beth with her Yellow-beaded Necklace, Tamera went above and beyond and wore her excellant earings, Mary and Megan wore their flowers in their hair and Agnes and my wonderful Mother were looking smashing as always!

Watch out next years Priesthood night! Next time it's at Agnes and let's just say there'll be even more sparkles. Oh, and we'll be flyining in Martha and Kristin because it just wasn't the same without you two (I miss you lovely ladies).Thanks Beth for the wonderful yearly tradition! You did a fabulous job! I couldn't have asked for a better Birthday Tea Party! Love you Bethy!
