So I have gotten a few texts and phone calls about Taylor and wanted to explain what happened on Thursday....... So Taylor woke up at about two thursday morning crying. Pretty typical for Taylor when she is teething or sick or something so I just assumed it was her teeth and gave her some medicine and layed her back down. She kept crying and crying so I layed her by us and let her cry. She fell asleep the rest of the night. I woke up in the morning and got up. Taylor was by me and tried to get up and immediately started screaming again and layed back down. I picked her up and stood her up. She grabbed her neck and started screaming owwwweeeeee!!So I just carried her upstairs and this went on for an hour or so. She wouldn't pick up her head or walk or anything so I started worrying about meningitis. I took her to the emergency room and they looked her over. The dr. sent her in for some x-ray's and sent them to provo to have the looked at. The radiologist in provo said there looked to be an absess or some kind of thickening between her vertebrae and trachea. He said they were waiting to hear from Primary Children's Hospital. I was freaking out by this point. What is a thickening I thought?! A few minutes later the dr. came and said that an ambulance was on the way and that they would be transporting her up to Primary Childrens. He said that they were concerned about it and it wasn't normal and that this thickening could be compromising her airway so she needed to be in the ambulance. So in about 5 minutes me and Taylor were in an ambulance on our way. It was the longest trip of my life!! Her oxygen levels kept dropping low when she would cry so trying to hold her still so her neck wouldnt move was ridiculous. When we got there I was so glad to see Jon. His friend was there and they gave taylor a blessing which was nice. Thanks Chris!! We had to wait for a good two hours before the dr. actually came in. Taylor was so hungry and so uncomfortable. She hadn't eaten a thing that day and was crying saying "ba ba, juice, juice". They said she couldn't have anything because she might need surgery. It broke my heart. I was going crazy just wanting some answers on what was wrong and going to happen with her. Several doctors finally came and looked at her and had blood tests done. They were fine. They sent her in for a CT scan and sedated her with valium. After about 10 minutes she was completely loopy, BUT she was actually sitting up, moving her head and all that. This was so different because she couldnt lift her head all day and was in so much pain. The CT scans came back ok. They said that if she was crying a lot when she got her original x'rays it could have made it look like there was something there that wasn't or make something look a little blurry. They basically came to the conclusion that she was having neck spasms. So after an extremely exhausting and emotional day, we got in the car and came home with Taylor happy as can be. I couldn't understand how I could go up with every bad possibility going through my head and them sayin she would be probably having surgery that day to nothing being wrong. I am just thankful she is fine and felt lucky to have drs who, even though things were ok, made sure things were safe. Thanks to everyone who called and expressed concern for us. We are so happy all is well and my Taylor is ok. So that is the story of by far the most crazy day of my life...........so far!!!

MOTHERS DAY RECAP
I had a great mothers day this year. Rylee ran up and gave me a card and told me happy mothers day. The card was from Jon but she wrote a "T" and an "R" for Rylee and Taylor all by herself . She was so proud of it!! We went to church and much to my surprise, She actually stood up on the stage with the primary and sang mother's day songs. Most of you who know Rylee, know thats not exactly normal for her, well, unless she has her face covered and is frowning. But, hands were down and she had a huge smile on her face!!!!! They did the cutest little presents in primary and little cards that asked questions about moms. She said I look prettiest....in a dress, and my favorite place to go is.......to the store, and other questions but it was so sweet it made me cry. I'm so lucky to be a mom to my beautiful little girls!!!! They truly make my life full of joy. And thanks to my awesome husband for making me feel so special on Mother's day! I pretty much milked it for all it was worth. He was probably sick of me by the end of the day but thanks for not showing it boyfriend!!! I love ya to death! I'm also so grateful to have a fabulous mom. She is the best mom. I have always been able to talk to her about anything and she would do absolutely anything for her children. Jon always makes fun of me and my sisters and even Marcus cause we are always talking to my mom. But I think it means something good. I''m so grateful to be so close with her! Now with my kids, she does the same thing. They love her so much and just think the worlk of their grandma Pace! Thanks for letting us live in your house and destroy you things for this past year. Ha! I love you so much mom. And also a thanks to Shari, my mother in law, who is the best. She does so much for us! Thanks shari, we love you.
HAPPY BELATED MOTHER'S DAY!!!!

Well, I finally got a chance to update my blog. I have gotten so bad at updating because I am not patient enough to wait for pictures to upload. I am bad I know! Anyways, we had a great Easter. Kelly's family came from Las Vegas and M&M came for a day. It was fun and nice to see everyone. We really missed Kara and her family though. The girls were able to have three easter egg hunts and that was great for Rylee. It was a little much for Ry since her easter basket was completely full and she said she didn't have enough eggs. WOW!!!! We have pretty much made a decision on where to live. We went to Rexburg Idaho for an interview last weekend and fell in love with the City! The best part was spending the weekend at Kara's. She seems so far away so it was nice to see her! Anyways, after the interview they offered him the job. We were so excited and asked for the weekend to think about it. Meanwhile, Provo school district wanted him too but didn't know for sure if they had an opening. They promised to know by monday. Well, due to the EXPENSIVE insurance and a compute with the idaho job, we decided on Provo. They called on monday and offered a job to him. We don't know which school for sure but are excited and happy about the decision!!! (We will still see ya lots Kara, I promise!) Anyways, things are going well and I am just so proud of Jon for getting finished with school after SEVEN years of switching majors and finally deciding and getting done!! I love ya boyfriend!!! We are excited for graduation cause President Monson is speaking. That will be fabulous! Anyways, I am posting some of the pics we have had lately.

We went to the sand dunes to play. It was so much fun for Rylee. But as you can see, Taylor was miserable. Her eyes swoll up all big so I had to take her home early.

Maria was nice enough to get out there with Rylee and look for eggs. Rylee loved it. My mom was a nice easter bunny and hid some envelopes with money in them for us to find. Thanks mom!

On Easter weekend, Jon had to go to a national park for his class so we went to Lehman Caves. Clint's family and Shari and Heather came. It was snowy but fun. Rylee absolutely LOVED the caves!!!Here is a picture of all the kids in a little cabin at Lehman's cave.

These are some pics of Rylee and her cousins when we watched them a while ago. They were getting ready to go to the swimming pool and were SOOOOO excited. They are just the best of friends when they are together. We sure miss not living by them anymore.

Well it has been so long since I have blogged so I thought I better catch up even though we have really been doing nothing. We are still here in Delta living with my parents and Jon has been subbing like crazy. It has been good that he has been able to work a lot but we are hoping to find a job soon. There have been two or three that he has been able to apply for but that is it. We are hoping more will come out in April. We are starting to worry that we will have to go out of state to get a job. I guess if that is what we have to do we will do it but we would love to stay in Utah. The girls are just busier than ever. Taylor is starting to say lots of different words and definitely puts up a fight with Rylee. As crazy as Rylee's attitude is, I am scared to say that Taylor's is even worse. Marcus (my brother) and Maria got married this past weekend and it turned out great. She was a gorgeous bride!! And Marcus looked pretty spiffy himself. We are so happy they are finally married, being high school sweethearts and all! Love ya tons M&M ! Well here are some pics that I have taken recently.
