Abby and Mommy made cupcakes. I am teaching Abby how to decorate with icing and alot of time it is fun, other times it gets really messy. She is getting better and better each time we do it. She is becoming quite the cook and wants to always be in the kitchen with mom. Today she even washed dishes. Although most of the bubbles and water ended up all over her, and all over my floor. IT was still fun.

Jaxon is growing up so quickly. He has become really bored with crawling, and decided that all he wants to do is walk. We are hoping that he will enjoy his freedoms and new adventures this summer as he walks. He walks along all the furniture, the bathtub, and now with his train. He is a smart little boy, and will only be 8 months tomorrow. I can hardly believe it has been that long since he was born. Jaxon has finally decided that he wants to sleep in a big boy bed, so tomorrow his crib will arrive. We are praying that that means we can finally get some good sleep. Wish us luck!!!!

Oh what a mess. So we had sea scallops, pork tenderloin, and noodles for dinner tonight. This is how much Jaxon loved his dinner. Abby helped out a little bit as I know you parents can understand, but at least they had fun!

We went to visit Grandma yesterday at BYU. The kids had a great time. Jaxon slept through the whole visit and Abby gave grandma some flowers and a book. She loved seeing the fountains still on in the middle of winter, and had so much energy that we decided to take her to McDonalds playland. That maybe wasn't the best decision. We were getting ready to leave and I was pulling the door to the playland open and a little girl was pushing hard on it at the same time; needless to say Abby got her foot stuck under the door. A loud scream, blood everywhere, and half a toenail sticking up later; we were on our way to see our Dr. He wanted to make sure it wasn't broken, and lucky for us it wasn't, but she still doesn't want to walk much on her foot and as we all know it is super sensitive. Especailly when your Dad steps on it, and your brother stands on it. Just another grand adventure in the Wiscombe family. We hope everyone else is safe and happy, and will write again soon.

Our little Jaxon continues to grow. He amazes me everyday. Jaxon is trying so hard to walk. We have had to get gates to keep him from the stairs so that he doesn't take a tumble, and have had to re-teach Abby and Daddy how to shut a bathroom door. Abby found out the hard way the other day when Jaxon put her brush in the potty. YUK!! bye bye brush!

Our little Abigail the cutest model on the block. We went to the sale at Old Navy and our little Hannah Montana is very stylish and hip. She went through the whole store, but would only pick out items that she thought Hannah would wear. How am I going to explain to her when Miley stops playing Hannah Montana? I am hoping that by then, she will have moved on to the next ever amazing thing in her life.

So far I am so excited for my new challenge and the new blog. If you don't know I am starting a new blog My challenge for the year is to try a new recipe everyday, kinda like the movie Julia and Julia. The reasoning behind it is that I bored with regular everyday food. I am changing recipes to make them for healthy and trying really really hard to introduce new foods to Abby and Bradly. Bradly is a bit picky about what he eats, and I just think for Abby to try all the new foods now would be a good thing. If you have any favorites you would like me to try, or you just want a certain food tried send me an email and I would be more than happy to fit into my new adventure. Thank-you for all of you that are following the adventure, and I hope that is is as fun for you as it is for me. :)

Sometimes I feel like life is just frustrating. But with all the help and love that I have experienced no matter what the battle is. . . . I CAN DO IT. . . .but sometimes I need just a little more love. We have been job searching again, and trying to decide whether to work or go back to school. Bradly has been laid off 3 times, and things just aren't picking up. He searches for work just to be told that there are 500 people applying for the one position open. But we keep fighting, keep pushing on, and hope that soon we will have a job again. Its during these times that I reflect to the good times in my life, and the AWESOME people that have shown me love, kindness and compassion. My life kinda goes in four different catagories. There are the awesome people that I met and grew up with in Midland Michigan. Jen, Jim and Laneeda, Clay, Jami and Leslie, Clark Family, and too many more to mention. That was a great time in my life. It was a time that I really learned for myself what love is and how great it feels to receive it. I learned to be strong and believe in myself and just love. Next time in my life was the Washington years. The greats: Clemens, Averys, Shayne, Nita, Linda, Ruth Backman, and the many more there in Federal Way. A time in our family of cancer and trail and anguish. Then on to the single wards here in Utah. The many guys that are so awesome everyone wants them and you know later in life you will see them as apostles etc; and the girls who help you find your way and you build those lifelong friendships with. John, John, Marianne, Genevea, Jen J, Timmy, Adam, Stephanie, Emily, Jason, Ken, Jeff, and many many more along the way. Then I have the recent ones: The Kelson Family, Mortenson family, Dorothy Larson, Cami Perry, Patti Miller, Michelle Arciniega, and several others. I reflect on all the times we shared, the memories, the blessings, the strengths, the comforts, the victories and the small but simple moments. You know who you are, you know that I love you, you know that I am the person I am because of you, you know that I remember, and you know that you hold an individual piece of my heart. Thank-you so much to all of you for all that you do, have done, and will do for me in my life. I pray that I can only be a better person, because of all of you. I pray that I can be as good a parent as I have watched many of you raise your families. I pray that I can be there for my children, and teach them to love as you have taught me. This is the month of LOVE. Let us all share love, kindness, forgiveness, peace, comfort and whatever we need to help others on their life journeys. Let us give them a comfort to ease all their trials. Yes some of us will face easy trials in life, and there are others who battle everyday. Be grateful for all that you have been given. PLEASE LET THOSE WHO YOU LOVE KNOW THAT YOU LOVE THEM EACH AND EVERYDAY, because we don't know when it will be our turn to return to our Father above. Seems like lately we have seen alot of good people die young, and with no signs of illness. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL OF YOU!!!! Know that I love you and forever my life will be wonderful, because of ALL of YOU! :)

Life As We Know It

I have decided that I am going to do a bit of journaling in the blog so that I don't have to have a journal for the kids and a blog. Just combine them, and share with everyone the fun things we do. So Abby is 3 3/4 years old. Abby loves playing princess, and shares a love for princesses with a love for fairies. She is caught between Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Snow White, Aurora, and Tinkerbell. Abby loves to cook and make messes. She has a love for girly things such as make-up, beautiful hair, and finger nail painting; she sure didn't get that from mom. Abby loves watching movies. Some of her favorites are: SpongeBob, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Dora, Little Einsteins, Disney movies galore, Curious George and Hannah Montana. She acts like she is going on thirteen or 30. She loves to dance, play board games, and play with out neighbors Donovan and KaLeah. She also is really a great little snugglier. As long as you are willing to give her your lap, she will jump on up only if you have a blanky to cuddle with. Abby's favorite colors are pink, purple, brown and orange. When she grows up she wants of course to become a princess, just like snow white. Now on to our little guy, Jaxon. He is 7 1/2 months old. He has 6 teeth completely in, and is working on more. He crawls everywhere and is into everything. We were so funny saying we wanted him to crawl. Jaxon has a huge acid problem which causes him to barf alot, but we still love him. He loves Sweet Potatoes, and has decided to quit eating baby food and eat big people food. Abby says she loves that he is nice to people, and smile for them easily. Jaxon loves to play with Daddy, and it is so fun to hear them laugh and giggle together. Daddy blows on his tummy, and he screams loudly. Jaxon walks along furniture, and when you are laying on the bed he will come over and stare at you till you pick him up. He follows my voice to find me in different places in the house, and it is so fun to have a little boy to dress and teach. They are definately different than girls for sure. I chew on everything that I can get my mouth on, I walk in the bathtub, and love to crawl everywhere. I hope to walk soon. I have a little jiggle bug that I love to play with, and I am finally loving rattles and things that I can fit in my hand and throw. I just wish that we could understand what Jaxon is saying. Abby loves to refer to herself and talk in the third person, it drives me nuts though. We have a wonderful family and I am so grateful for the 2 kids that we get to raise and watch grow up everyday. We are taking the kids to get pictures taken soon, and will post some of them on here. Thank-you so much for the things that we learn. Although life at times may be challenging, we are grateful for the trials and tribulations that we are given.

Our little Jaxon thinks that my storage tubs are the greatest. He loves to push them around the house, climb in and out of the them, and lay down in them.

Abby sitting in a crowd of stuffed animals. It was just so cute, we wanted everyone to see. Reminds me a little of E.T.
