Pictures at the Park... November 1st, 2011

There is nothing more challenging then getting a good picture of your kids together!!! My friend took these pictures at the park for us - she did a great job but it's so hard to capture the kiddos together!!! We worked our butt off getting just a few good pictures. We had lots of chasing as Rylan thought that was part of it. Alex is so young she doesn't get sitting still. So this is what came of the photo session... They are okay, not great but okay!

1st Birthday outfit

Happy 1st Birthday Alex ... What a special day for us to be celebrating our first year with Alex. She is such a special girl who is so happy! We had family over on her actual birthday to celebrate this very important day. Thanks to all who came and helped us celebrate, it means so much to have you come!

I should also give my mom a huge THANK YOU!!!! My mom cleaned the entire house (scrubbed floors, cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen, does our laundry), went to the store to get the food and also made all the food. I was able to just relax and spend time with Alex on her special day! I could not have done it without you mom .... You are the best!

Alex's 1st Birthday Invites

Rylan's 3rd Birthday

Cop outfit to go with his cop car

Hilarious to watch these kids hit the pinata - Rylan was pretty great at it!!! I have high hopes he will be a good baseball player.

Rylan's 3rd birthday was a great success! We had it on Sunday October 30th and had many family and friends over. Rylan was pretty spoiled with lots of fun presents! We had a great time and can't thank everyone enough for coming and celebrating his special day with us!

Happy Halloween

Butterfly and Batman

Halloween was so much fun this year with Rylan really starting to understand. The weather was perfect so it made for a great night to take the kids out. We went to a different area of town where our friends live to go with them. I had a great time taking Rylan out and watching his reaction to people's costumes! There was one house we were walking up and an owner of the house was sitting on the stairs dressed up like a bear sitting really still... Well Rylan did not notice him until we got really close and the look on his face was priceless, and he instantly turned around and wanted nothing to do with the bear or getting candy from it. I cried I laughed so hard! I love Halloween... but what's really cool is that it's Rylan's birthday the following day!
