Gingerbread House













Although Hubby and I enjoyed decorating the house, lil' ryan's favorite part is eating it. As you can see he didn't even wait for the candy. He was diving right into the frosting :)
ps Earthquake hit shortly after our home was built (and it had nothing to do with baby Ryan!! seriously)

Ewww, gross


I swept my kitchen floor the other night and turned for just a moment to grab the dust pan. When I turned back around to go sweep up the mess, Little Ryan had already found the pile of delicious left overs. I ran to grab the camera as he helped himself to a little snack. So gross.

You make the call

Does he look more like his dad?
or his mom? (he is ready for a nap, so tired!)
His dad thinks he looks like him. I think he looks like me, so you make the call.

Start cleaning out the room and picking paint colors

First of all, happy Thanksgiving. I am tired and ready to go to bed so this will be short and sweet.

We aren't having twins like I had been praying for the last few months, but....
It's a girl, in case you couldn't tell. There's a small arrow to help you out. You should see 'nothing'.

Of course we are excited.


She already sucks her thumb, just like her brother.
Sorry pics aren't clearer, but there isn't any light source good enough because it is night. I couldn't use the flash cause those pics just turned out to be a big white spot.
Ps, we have another booger on the way. It took the tech, Forrest, an hour and a half and some extra help to get all of her measurements and what not because she was so active.
Oh yeah, one more ps, I thought I would mention briefly what a beautiful thing it is being a women, holding your pee in for hours so they can check your cervix, braxton hicks that are as painful in my lower back as trying to give birth (seriously, I'm not exagerating) while having the ultra sound and last but not least the every so often tummy pains from the tech pushing on my tummy while baby girl was pushing (or kicking) right back at him! Ouch!
But of course, we are excited.

Sex please

Call me crazy but I definitely have to find out the sex of my babies. So, I thought it would be fun to find out what everyone else thinks I'm having. Don't ask me, cause I don't know, and if I were to take a guess, I am always wrong. Ryan thinks it is another boy. We find out a week from today, the day before thanksgiving! This is definitely something to be grateful for. I love babies and feel very blessed to be able to have them :)!!!

Sleepover with the cousins

This is a rare moment to catch all three smiling and looking at the camera at the same time. Thanks Hayden and Hunter for staying the night with us!
The fort we built the following morning. I have to admit it was my best ever!

What's wrong with this picture?


His dad got him dressed for the day... it's November and a chilly day. And the top and bottoms definitely don't match... even I knew this! Oh yeah, white shoes after labor is a big no no. Don't ask me why.

Need I say more?


The rally was amazing! It extended down Sunrise from Highway 50 to Highway 80. I've never done anything like this. Ryan and I drove from Greenback to 50 and couldn't believe how many people we saw.. in the rain... in the cold. Oh it gave me chills (not because I was cold). We saw Ryans dad and decided to get out for a bit and fight for the cause. It was sooooo fun!

Shoes

video

Thanks lil' Ryry for keeping my feet covered.

No longer hard hats required... shoes required






This kid is so funny. He went all the way down the hallway to bring me my shoes (I did not ask for them) and if you've been to my house, you know its not a short hallway. Then he proceeds to put them on me. I promise he is ALL boy, except for this one minor thing, he is obsessed with shoes. The only time he sits still for me is to let me put his shoes on. I am grateful for that ;)

My Ryans




I thought I would show you how cute my Ryans are... in case you didn't already know.

The best afternoon of my life!!

Baby Ryan all snuggled up on his blanket and bumper.

Tayton curled up in the pack n play.

Keaton all cozy on my bed.
And Elle sprawled on the recliner.



Did this really happen??? to me?? Wow, what did I do to deserve this? I had three EXTRA little ones today, 4 total with my lil' Ryan and they ALL slept at the same time!!! I was even brave/stupid enough to go in each room and take a pic of the sleeping little tikes.

You don't have to ask twice how my day went :)

Hangin' with the Cadle Clan....


Thanks Melanie for having us over for pudding art. I don't think Ryan quite got the concept so we'll wait til he's a little older for next time :) (I had to do all the work, including the feeding and mess!)

"We are the three amigos, and amigos we'll always be"




Dusty Bottoms, Ned Nederlander and Lucky Day






I was sick a couple months ago for two weeks. I caught some kind of crazy cold, felt sick and tired from being pregnant and to top it off I got in a car accident all in the same weekend. So, from being down for so long I watched a handful of movies, including one of my all time favorites since I was super young "The Three Amigos" Halfway through the movie it hit me, "there are three in our family this year. This is what we should be for Halloween." I set out to every store in town I could think of that might have something like this... Wal-mart, target, K-mart, Evangelines in Old Town Sac. Finally, I had to settle with going to the DI and making these bad boy costumes all on my own. It was a lot of work, but I think it was well worth it. Every time I look at these I just laugh because it sends a flood of one liners from the movie to my mind. Hilarious show. If you haven't seen it, please tell me and I will gladly let you borrow it. If you are out of town, then you need to go buy it. LOL it is soooo funny! I think it ended up costing me about 80 bucks for all three costumes... not bad huh? We even won our ward costume contest for best family costume. The 5 dollar gift card to Sonic was worth all those back breaking hours I put in to these bad boys. Enjoy!

This one's for Aunt Chelsea



My younger sister, Chelsea, used to suck her thumb and play with her ear. She would also play with other peoples ears. I have a pic of us in bed together spooning (come on people, we were very young) Anyway, she was behind me and had her thumb in her mouth and her other hand rubbin' on my ear. I'll have to find it and scan it for you all to see.

John's Incredible Pizza

John's Pizza has a little GATED play area for smaller kids! Love it! Lil' Ryan loved it and we didn't have to worry about him too much, with his climbing skills and ability to get himself into trouble.

Twelve weeks pregnant, looking nice! I am not looking forward to the days of blowing up. I couldn't pass up an opportunity to eat at a buffet :)

I don't know if we just look tired, or just tired!?

Ryan caught doing things he shouldn't be doing... again!





This is definitely a daily routine. It's a matter of whether I feel like whipping out the camera or not. The look of "oops, I'm stuck" does not stop him from doing it all over again, once I help him down.

The California State Fair

He loves animals, so the petting zoo was a big hit! Watch out for the deer... they eat your shirts!
Ryan loved the bead necklaces they were handing out during their parade. I think it was 104 that day!We went to the fair on the absolute hottest day it was open. You see, this was part of our plan in hopes that no one else would be there. I think it worked!! I came prepared with lots of water. Every once in awhile we would dump water over the baby, notice his awesome hair do lol


He didn't love it, but he didn't hate it!
