Fall & Misc.

It's fall already. My favorite season, I've already got people wanting their family pics made while the leaves are turning. I'm excited about it. This month will also hold a trip to Colorado for my family. Actually, it's mostly for my husband who thinks he MUST go on an Elk hunt every year! I'm actually not too excited about it. I would have much rather gone to Florida, but unfortunately my mother in law was sick with tick fever so we had to cancel. :(

Next month will hold a "Thomas the Train" birthday party for a handsome little boy who will turn 2! Sigh. This is just going by entirely too fast. I also purchased his Halloween costume a few weeks guessed it, THOMAS! Ry is infatuated with Thomas. He always has his little train in his hand while running through the house saying "TOOOO-TOOO". (choo-choo) It is the cutest thing ever.

Too Old To Tube?

Yesterday Benny was off work, so he thought it would be fun to go "tubing". So, he bought a tube and away we went. Dillon, our nephew also went along...that kid is a hoot! Of course we had to leave Rylan behind with his Granny, but they had a great time together. I had not went tubing in about 10 years! And believe me, I'm FEELING it today. It was alot of fun, but sheesh! I hurt pretty much everywhere....boy, age just sneaks up on us doesn't it!

Yep...that's my crazy self.

My wonderful husband, Benny.

Or as he calls hmself...Ben with an "N"

Oh, I have just recently been told that we will be going to the Beach! Yay us! Actually, it will be the gulf....but it's better than another elk hunt!

Pool Time & Gagging

Well, summer is here and after ALOT of nagging my husband, our pool is finally up! Actually it's been up for about a week, but I'm a "chicken" and have been waiting for the water to warm up some. I got in today for the first time this year to skim and shock the pool after all the rain we've had lately. So, tomorrow I've decided that Rylan and I are gonna do some relaxing in the pool. And hopefully I will get some color to this ridiculously pale body!

Changing the subject, has anyone else had problems with your child "gagging" themselves? I know it's nasty gross, but my son thinks this is a good way to get out of naps and bedtime. I'm very frustrated with this. I have to change his bedding at least once a day, sometimes more. I've never heard of girls doing this, however boys are a whole different story!

Strawberry Pickin' and Good Times

We've been having so much fun lately! Rylan loves going outside to play, so this year we've been getting some outside time in, as opposed to this time last year when I thought I would never see the outside world again! We had our first Stawberry pickin' this week, I let Rylan pick the first ripe one and you know I couldn't resist some picture taking! There were only two ripe ones and I never even got a taste, Ry ate them both. Aww, the things we give up for our
Our church had a 4-wheeler ride last Saturday. And since Benny doesn't like riding, Dad and I went while Benny babysat. It was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed spending some "fun time" with Dad. God blessed me with a wondeful Dad, he makes me so proud of him. He recently got saved and has been coming to our church with us, and I just eat that up! I love going to church, but it's even better when you have family there with you. Praise God!
Girls night out was last Friday night...and oh the stories I could tell! But I won't, instead I'll post a few pics. These ladies are wonderful friends thatI am so thankful for.

Spring Fever

Can I just say that I'm LOVING these beautiful days that God has been blessing us with?! This weather has been awesome. My little Ry baby has been getting to enjoy some much needed outside play! I do believe he is happiest outdoors, and oh how I love to see him smile!

Now, how could anyone not love this guy?

Oh, my son...what did I ever do without you? You bring so much happiness and joy to my life.

All this beautiful weather has gotten me into "gardening mode". This happens to me every year....until the summer comes....I really do have good intentions, but this girl CANNOT take the heat. Fall and Spring are awesome, Winter is good, Summer...well, I don't like to be hot, sweaty, or bitten by anything. However, I do like to plant flowers and such and am actually good at it....yep, I've got the fever. Spring Fever.
On another note, Saturday is girls day out....I'm ready. I so look forward to those all too scarce days with the girls that knew me when I was carrying a Rainbow Brite lunchbox to school everyday. For one day every once in a LONG while, I get to be FUN......I guess the word is carefree. No kids, no husband, no laundry, no house to clean.....just a bunch of girls that love to laugh. Can't wait!

That used to be us!

New Kid On The Block...

Wow....this is harder than I thought it would be. Do I really have time for this?! I guess I am a glutton for punishment...ha! And I thought that I was pretty computer/technology savvy...maybe not as much as I thought. Oh, well....I'll figure it out eventually.

So my little boy is almost 15 months old...HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? I miss my little baby, I have been looking back at pictures of him and I must say that it makes me sad to see him growing so FAST.

"My sweet little boy 2 weeks old"

"Momma's BIG Boy 14 1/2 months old"

I hate to admit it, but I guess you would now call him a "TODDLER". WOW. This kid walks, runs, jumps, talks, and CLIMBS (that's the scary one) and sometimes it's definitely hard for his mother to keep up,but I LOVE every minute of it. So, today I thought that I would take him to Playworld in Conway to play. I had looked on their website and saw that it said they had a toddler area with ball pits and other such things for kids his age. So, this morning we headed towards Conway. I was so excited to see him get to play and just pretty much get to run wild. I finally find the place and guess what.....CLOSED ON MONDAYS! WHAT????! Are you kidding me...just my luck...I felt so bad. So, what could I do, we had drove all the way to Conway....OH! I know......guess we'll just have to do a little shopping. Anyway, Rylan's day turned into Mommy's day....and it's times like this that make me the best mother EVER.:(
