We had a very eventful weekend. We went up to Snowflake and Heber this weekend cause Nic had some business in Snowflake and we wanted to visit with family. We left after work on Thursday and headed out to got through the canyon. The alternator in the car went out just in time for us to reach the Auto Zone in Globe. WONDERFUL!! I know. It is amazing that I am married to a mechanic though!! We got what we needed and the guy that worked there helped Nic take out the old alternator and put in the new one. It took about a hour and a half to get that done so by the time we left Globe it was 10:30pm. We had to stop a couple times on the way to Snowflake to POWER NAP! We reached Grandma and Grandpa Despain's at about 1:00am!! But we got there safe and that was the important thing. Taya having slept the whole way was up and ready to go at 7:00 am the next morning! Much to our dismay!! lol! But we got to spend the morning with Grandma and Grandpa before they had to go to the temple and Then we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening with Grandma Holladay. Taya helped roll out dough and make Cinnamon rolls! Uncle Brett, Aunt Tobie and the boys came over and hung out and we were surprised by Nic's parents as well. I did some hair for the neighbor next store, it was good visiting with Shar and getting to know Mrs. Hatch better! At about 10:30 we went back the Grandma and Grandpa Despain's and visited with them and Uncle Randy and Randall a bit before getting Taya to sleep and going to bed ourselves! We woke up Saturday and visited a bit with Grandma and Grandpa Despain then headed over to Grandma Holladay's house. Jeni and Rayli came over and I did their hair for Clint's brother's wedding. Rayli and Taya have become quite the friends and it is so much fun to watch them play! And I will admit I have become quite fond of Jeni myself! lol! (Thanks for keeping them busy Grandma Kelli)Then we headed out to Heber where we spent time with my parents. My dad took Taya for a ride with the tube tied to the riding lawn mower! We also took her sledding (pictures to come lost camera!! ah!! I know) Then we went and hung out with my cousin Lonna and her husband Cameron, and their little girl Alli!! Alli and Taya had a blast!! It reminds me of me and Lonna when we were little and they haven't forgotten eachother you can tell!! We had a lot of fun! We sure enjoyed getting to spend time with them. Sunday we went to church and their ward with my parents, and then I chopped off all of Lonna's hair it is so CUTE! but so DIFFERENT!! I also gave my dad a little cut then Nic and I took Taya to Snowflake and stopped by Azure's Grave. IT is beautiful up there if anyone has the time stop by... It is hard seeing the grave but it is so peaceful up there. I know that that is not where she is but she was there that day!! I miss her dearly! I really do!

Anyway, we then stopped by Brian's to see little Eric! WHo is SO FAT! He's so cute and I just loved getting to see him. Also Brian and Ginger are getting married on Thursday at 11 am civil. They got her cancelation of sealing letter and they cannot be sealed for a year so they decided to go ahead and get married! So CONGRATS GUYS and we wish we could be there!!

Taya's First Haircut

First of all I am sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. So much has happened and we have been so busy I just haven't found the time to update our blog.

Anyway Taya had her first haircut a couple weeks ago and some amazing hair dresser (aka me) haha did it for her. So here are a few pictures of my little cutie pie!!
