Family ornament time!

Yay Heather! You started a trend.. I didnt start family ornaments until just last year! When we had Riley. But now I know how important they are. I found this one On-line and I just loved it!

I can't believe how expensive these little things are so I wanted it to say something that would really pertain to our family.. Those of you who know me well know this is totally us!
I got Riley a cheapy one this year because I looked and looked and couldnt find anything I really liked.. Maybe next year then he can pick his own.

& here is a picture of Riley squating in a bowl :) I thought it was cute... This is the kind of help I get in the kitchen! No wonder I dont cook! :)

Green Beans & Ketchup!

We went to the Texas Roadhouse for my birthday dinner on sunday. I had to put this on here because I was so proud of Riley! He did such a great job! he was sitting in the highchair next to gracee in her's (who is my niece whom I just adore!)

Gracee got mac & cheese and Riley got chicken fingers. so he picked off a peice of one of his chicken fingers.... slid it on gracee's plate and grabbed a handful of her mac and cheese! He was trading with her. I thought it was so cute and gracee didnt mind. After about ten mins he had her whole plate in front of him and ended up shoveling the mac & cheese in his mouth!

Silly kid & he dips his green beans in ketchup! Yuck! Anyone else's kids have weird eating habits?

Just A bunch of turkeys!

This turkey has a better tan then I do!!, but at least we have the same shape :)

Its almost Thanksgiving! I love the holidays, they make me feel warm and tingley inside. Eventhough I have to work most of the day :P Have fun planning everyone!
Hey, Heather told me about a fun little idea she found on Crystals website! Oreo Turkeys!! So I took my last $15 bucks for the week and made some! :) It was fun a little harder then I thought....

Do I have to show the ones with me in them????

Family Pictures!!!
Have you ever had that moment, when you see pictures of you and think....... Who is that???? I had a major moment at Target, My husband made me get them. I am sure in 30 years I will look back and say.. I didnt look that bad... but that day is far far away!

Here are some of the pictures that I think are ok, this is the only family one I can deal with, Riley and Mike look great!!

I do Love Love Love Love this one though.. It's like a pictures we had in my moms house... I think I will blow it up and put it in the hallway :)

Hello, Your only 18 months!! Not TWO!! this is when the mistchief starts.. I can see it in his eyes .......

The photo lady asked him to sit on the blcok, he smiled at her and turned around to sit backwards!!.. OH NO!!!! Is this going to be the toddler years?? What was I thinking!! What happened to my perfectly good son, the one that listened to me!!! Is he lost forever??

It is a really cute pic though... :)

To the Fair we go!

I took my camera To the AZ State Fair!, planning on taking lots of picture on Riley on Rides and the family!!! but that didn't happen, I only got as far on this one, me & Riley in the car on the way there... But I did discover something very important from this pic.. can you say.. in need of crest whitestrips!!! :P Oh well,

Riley was 1 inch to short and they wouldnt let him on any rides! only 2! but.. the food was good and His uncle won him a big bird! & I won him a basketball. My husband tried to make the basket 4 times and lost! I did it on my first try! Girls ROCK!

AhH.. Don't Pull I can do it Myself!!


So, Riley Loves walking down the stairs, and up the stairs and over things and under things! All the time. I try to be a good patient mom and let him walk all over when we get out of the house. (which hasn't been much lately).... We start out going down the first step! Which he does GREAT! with a smile and everything

then we pause for about a min or so, thinking about the next step, and the process it will take to get down it...

another min....... here we go.. attempting to scoot closer to the edge.... scoot scoot scoot... pause.. scoot... pause look around.... oooooh someone walked by.. watching the person walk by about a min.,...

ok.. mom is getting tired of waiting.. "lets go sweets! You can do it!! yay! almost there!" .. another min.. scoot scoot.. pause look step back.... grrrrrr mom growls.. "we have to go Riley, your almost there, lets go peanut, your doing great!" ....... pause hey....


Don't pull!!!! I can do it myself!!!! wait...

mom gets tired of waiting and carries me instead! :)

Kids!! They are nuts!

Newsies the younger version!

Do you remember the movie newsies with all the cute kids dancing and singing in vintage wear! :) Riley was wearing my sister Paige's hat while they were playing and looks like he is starring in the re-make!

P & P

Yesterday My sister Paige & Heather and the boys came over for Pumpkins and Pizza! I think the adults had more fun then the kids!

Riley was afraid to get yucky and would barley touch the pumpkin! He was way more interested in the sharpie's and knives!!

It was a fun night! with a few fun creations in the end!

This blog is dedicated to my best friend in the whole world!! Heather you have inspired me to clean... my stove!!..

I know!! its white!! It wasnt yesterday but, today... I figured since you are coming over tomorrow you might ask if you could clean it again, so I better get it done..
Are you proud?? I hate cleaning my stove, so I feel fully accomplished today! :)

Trying on our costume!

We tried on our costume a few days ago. At first it was fun!! :) but then Riley realized that monkey's dont have fingers and can't pick things up. He cried and cried till I took it off. OH NO!!!!! I hope he wears it for a little while on Halloween.... maybe candy will change his attitude......

At the Races!!

Last night we went to the dirt car races. Riley had a good time eventhough it was super loud!! When the cars go around the track mud, and dirt flies into the stand. I got wacked in the shoulder with a golf ball size mud rock. It hurt and the mud got stuck in my hair. We were covered in dirt by the time it was over, in our ears and when I changed riley it was in his diaper!! I have no idea how that happened. The last race was really loud because there was 24 cars all together, it scared the child a bit and he leaked right though his diaper all down my jeans! YUCK!But, it was an "interesting" time, as long as my boys had fun thats all that counts!

Cleaning.. a family affair

I recently found out my son is addicted to the vacuum cleaner. :) which should be a good thing, but she whines like a fire truck when I turn it off or put it away. At least he wants to help. :) and he looks pretty cute doing it so why not. Now if I could only get to him to do the dishes I would be a very happy woman, since my husband does all the laundry. Have a great day !
