"You're kidding me? I have 2 teeth!?"
Taylor Bug surprised us with 2 bottom teeth which we discovered on Nov.4...when she was only 41/2 months old. WHAT THE...? She is seriously the happiest, most easy going baby and was not fussy at all as she cut these teeth. Cy, however, has made up for it :)

Amanda & Carly threw me a surprise birthday party for my big 3 0. Carly invited my friends and decorated the back yard. There were chips and salsa along with Carly's wonderful, cheesy Mexican dip and fantastic guacamole. It's crazy to think that I'm 30, but so far I am loving it.
Here are a couple pictures from the big party back in August. My super awesome in-laws were also in on the scoop, and helped with the kids while I was swept away for an over-nighter to Park City. Thanks Rick & Lisa!
Gage taking some swings at the Pinata Carly got. My friends brought their kids too, and they each got a turn smacking the Pinata.
Carly & Spencer made a slide show with some pictures from my old photo albums. Spencer put the pictures to music and set the computer up outside for the slide show. He calculated that I was 10,750 days old! (I think I'll use "30" when someone asks my age).
The slide show was wonderful, and my kids loved seeing pictures of themselves too.
Thank you to EVERYONE for this wonderful birthday! It was truly a surprise!!

Most people have 10 toes, some 11 (never known anyone with 11 but I'm sure they are out there). But according to Aunt Jessi, Gage has 8 toes. Gage is very unique because he has webbed toes. It sounds gross, but they are so cute. He recently discovered what he has termed, "his twin toes." He doesn't know he is different and he doesn't care. But someday when asked, "what is something that you have and no one else does?" His response can be his webbed toes.
Jed and I were told that Gage had webbed toes when he was in-utero; when he was born the pediatrician said he could snip his toes (at the same time as snipping his you-know-what). Well, when his toes were less than 2 cm long they didn't appear that webbed. However, the bigger he gets the more obvious it is. Grandpa Chrisman says he'll run faster, "ducks have webbed feet & you can't ever catch a duck." You can tell Reese's toes are jointed together (is that how to describe it?) but they aren't webbed through the digits.
So, here's to the webbed-toe Chrisman kids. Cy is exempt from this trait and it has yet to be detected on Baby Peanut. I know some of you are not feet/toe people so good luck enduring these pictures. FYI Ashton so-hot Kutcher also has webbed toes.
