Snow in Roseville California

Although I did not manage to get a picture of the snow on our lawn this morning (darn), this was my sons choice of clothing for the day. Yes, we left the house in below 40 to run to a couple of errands with the little guy looking like this. I don't know if it is an age thing or a stage he is going through, but I hope he grows out of it soon! The kid always has to be in shorts and flip flops. So Californian. I guess I would rather have him be that than anything else :)

I took a picture of him just a few short days ago with him wearing something very similar and eating an otter pop... again, with it VERY cold outside!

I forgot to wish my husband a happy birthday.... Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!
It was on 9/11

Bet you didn't know he performed in the Sacramento Ballet's The Nutcracker!!

He complains that he has knee problems... I can't imagine why!

Too cool to smile? No, he got he teeth knocked out by an opponent.
J/K He has all his teeth :)
The Boys enjoying their time together.
Lil Ryan got a "blue geh-tar" for his birthday. (that's what he calls it)
I guess he couldn't take a break from sucking his thumb to play it!

Birthday birthday birthday!

I saw a picture of this cake and thought it was adorable so I made it for Lil' Ryans 2nd b-day. Not bad for my first cake ever!!
The birthday party was based on the cake, so naturally the cupcakes needed to coincide with the carousel cake.
If only the weather had cooperated better (it was so windy that the cupcakes kept falling over!!
I think Silly the Clown was a huge hit with kiddos. With his fabulous personality and ability to make things with balloons, he could do no wrong! Thanks Silly!
My mom made this clown costume just a few days before the main event! She is genius. And amazing.
all the ladies... well most!
Big Ryan's b-day surprise... his very own volley ball net, boundary marker and volleyball. Boy was he surprised!
Thanks Tiani and Brandon (their code names during the four weeks before the big day were Abominable and Snowflake... assigned by Brandon... Tiani was named Abominable) Crazy newlyweds!
Abby enjoying her balloon hat and cupcake!
Lil' Ryan with cousins Jane and Hayden.
Hayley and Kailee also enjoying their cupcakes
Madi, Allison and Peyton... cute girls!
Ryan and Keaton in the bounce house! Lil' Ryans absolute favorite thing to do is play with his cousins.

My mom made his clown costume the day before... again, she is amazing!

Hope you had fun my two Ryan's!!!

Happy Birthday to our Freedoms!!!

We had to deal with this..............
... and this......

To get this!
We started the Fourth of July off right by attending our nieces baptism. Congrats Jane on making a great choice. You are now held accountable for everything you do... good luck with that!!! :)
If you will notice lil' Ryan is a small speck out in centerfield. He would bat, hit the ball and then take off running to who knows where?! The whole game stopped while everyone had a good laugh at the crazy kid!
Keira sportin' her first swimsuit. She LOVED the water :)
Lil' Ryan holding his sparkler all by himself!
Keira was fast asleep while we enjoyed the fireworks outside.
I swear I had nothing to drink that night! Ok, maybe one or two rootBEERS!

We are so grateful for our freedoms, family, religion, friends and the many other blessings that our Heavenly Father has given us. I haven't been given the opportunity to travel outside of this wonderful country but I don't need to to know how lucky I am to Be An American!
