Oh no! Alien Baby!

As I was scrolling through my pictures to post, my eyes stumbled upon these funny pics of Zack! For Brianna's birthday we got her a camera with special editing features...and I guess these are the result! Pretty funny, huh? And I love the close up of Brianna! So I guess this is what we encourage our kids to do in their spare time!!!

Kindergarten Here We Come!!!

Here are some pictures of Brianna's first day of kindergarten. I can't believe how big she is getting! How is it possible that my little girl is old enough to be in Kindergarten??? And yes, when she got on the bus...I totally cried! She loves going to school and everytime she gets on the bus I think...ah, I'm going to miss her. And so does Brayden. Because 2 seconds later he always says, "I miss Brianna. I want to go to kindergarted too." But on the flip side, it has been really fun to see Brayden and Zack play together more, just chasing eachother around the house and playing with blocks together. Isn't being a mom great??? :)

Zack turns ONE!!!

We had a great time celebrating Zachary's first birthday with our family in Texas! He got so excited after taking his first bite of the cupcake, that he actually ate two of them! Why not I say! It's his birthday! We love our funny baby Zack!

Brianna's 5th Birthday!

Okay, so it has been a very busy summer! But I had to rewind and post a couple very important pictures of my little Brianna. She started the day with breakfast in bed, and then had a super fun time having a princess party, and playing games like dinglehopper (from the little mermaid) and magic carpet ride (aladdin), and Princess, prince, frog(duck, duck, goose). I can't believe that my little baby is 5 years old already and is so accomplished. I mean, she can get her own snacks, put her own shoes on, and already knows how to drive her brother Brayden crazy!!! :) She is so special to Ryan and I, and we feel so blessed to have this special spirit in our home. She really is a sweetheart, and we love her so much!

Bunk Beds!!!

A little while ago the kiddos got bunk beds! Brayden was pretty sad when he realized that Brianna was getting the top bunk. But after a while, he thoughtfully said, "That's okay, because when Zack gets older I can sleep on the top bunk." Ryan and I just looked at eachother and thought, yes, he's right, but it's going to be a long while! :) The kids got new sheets and Brayden absolutely loves his new, "How to train a dragon" comforter, and Brianna loves her new blanket-pink is always a hit with her! :)

"Great Aunt" Barbara

This past week we had the great pleasure of having my Aunt Barbara come and visit us from Florida! We had lots of fun, and it was so great having her here, we were so sad to see her go. There's definitely something special about having family around! We love you Aunt Barbara!!!

Puerto Rico Anyone???

SO I have to admit, the first time Ryan asked, "Would you ever be interested in visiting Puerto Rico?" This is NOT what I had in mind! We just got back from a fantastic vacation, and yes, we dropped the kids off at Grandma and Grandpa Millers, and everything was sooooo wonderful! Lots of beach (this is our view from our condo), sun, and sand! We did a little bit of kayaking in a biolumiscent bay~every time you touched the water it lit up like a glow stick , Carribean snorkeling, and horseback riding at the base of the rainforest. All in all, it is just what every couple needs...a little bit of a second honeymoon!!! :) We had great company, Ryan's brother Ray and his sweet wife Molly made the trip complete and tons of fun!

Here's we are at Luqillo Beach on the northeast side of the island. The water felt so nice and we loved the sunny weather! So picture perfect!

Cheers to NINE wonderful years of marriage! What a great guy I snagged! It sure is fun going through life with your best friend! :) Thanks Ryan. I love you.

My Baby Zack

I love looking at newborn baby pictures, especially of my own baby. So, even on those not so fun looooooong days, you can remember how adorable and innocent these children of God are, and how special a gift it is to be their mom.
