I realize it is time for a massive update! What have the Taggart's been up to lately?
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my mom's house.
This picture concerns me... When Spence is watching something on TV, nothing breaks his focus (and it drives me crazy!) Look at Tallie - like father, like daughter...
Did I mention Lance LOVES reading? I will just catch him in his room reading his books out loud to himself, it is so cute!
The week after Thanksgiving our good friend from Thunderbird came to visit and to meet Tallie. It was great to spend time with Pam!
Lance was in Heaven having Pam to play with for 3 days, she is so cute to both our kiddos! Thanks for visiting Pammy!
We went to Temple Square to see the lights. Lance's favorite song is "I love to see the Temple" right now, in fact he asks to listen to the "temple song" several times a day, so it was fun for him to see the Temple!
Bundled and ready to look at the lights!
A little self shot!
Speen and I enjoyed a night out at his work party. They gave away incredible things during the raffle. We lucked out (or should I say I lucked out) and won a gift card to Anthropology! And if you look closely, YES Spence is wearing a white suit. He insists that his work had a 'fashion forecaster' come and speak to them and the whole 'no white after labor day' is totally out - in case you are wondering! ;)
This was one of our failed attempts at taking a family picture for Christmas cards.
Lance loves to play the piano. We put little letter stickers on the keys to help teach him. I also was lovin the coordination of his outfit this day since it is pretty rare that he is super matchy!
And now to little Tallie... she is doing great!!! This was last Sunday. It was the first time I had ever tried to dress her up and it lasted all of about an hour at church. She sure is good at those blowouts! Although, she was cute while it lasted.
Here are her 2 month stats:
22 1/2 inches (50%)
10.8 lbs (35%)
Interesting tidbit: Lance was 22 1/2 inches and 10.10 lbs at 2 months, so they were very close!
Lance is LOVING his Advent Calendar! First thing he does in the morning is run upstairs and says "Christmas Candy" - it is so cute!
Last night was our ward Christmas party that we were in charge of. I am very happy with the way everything turned out. This picture does not do the decorations justice, but they really turned out great. We had a sit down dinner with a nice program. Each table had a different set of China or Christmas Plates on it. So fun!
We had these big presents all over the room as decorations. They were just wrapped big storage boxes with ribbons on the top, so cute and very easy! We actually scored and got them another ward who used them last week. We ended up having to spend 0 DOLLARS on decorations, it was awesome!
Here is our happy/relieved look after the party was over! Definitely glad to have this done!
Meet Stormin' Norman!
Yes, Spence went out to shovel the snow today and I looked out the window to see what was taking so long and saw him building a 7 foot snowman! I thought that was so cute of Spence. He even built a little slide off the back of the snowman for Lance to slide down!
And last but not least, Tallie has started smiling a TON this past week. It has been so much fun to get a reaction back from her.
Well that's all. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
