Wow, so I haven't blogged in a LONG time!
Ryann just started Kindergarten, what a big girl! I can't believe how fast time goes by! It has definitely been odd not having her with me all the time. Poor Tristan doesn't know what to do with himself. If I thought he was attached to me before, he has just gotten worse! When we dropped Ryann off the first day Erin and Tristan stayed in the car while I took her to class. When I got back into the car, without crying, I know I am still so proud, T was grunting and pointing at sissy's car seat. He was like "what did you do with her?" It was too funny, but he definitely misses her! Well that's all I have for the time being! Hopefully not that Ry is at school I will have more time and energy to keep blogging! However with only one child, that doesn't talk, I'm not sure what I will have to write about! Maybe apartment hunting, or snakes in my dryer vent !
Until Next Time :)

Daddy's Little Girl

So I have this little girl who is obsessed with getting married. She wants to marry everyone including her daddy, mommy and brother.

My question is...does every little girl have this stage?

I ask because I don't remember going through that. As most of you know my parents divorces when I was 7, but I do know that when I was little I did love him. However, I don't remember things like that. Maybe I have blocked that out of my memory, but did I ever want to marry my dad. I don't have many good feelings or memories of him. I hope that when Ryann grows up she will still cherish her Daddy and still look up to him as her king. She is such a daddy's girl, she would prefer to do things with him over me any day.

I have also been having this problem about remembering much about my dad. Not that I don't remember anything, the memories are all just... well not great things to remember. How do I get past that and move on. I thought I had, but having a little girl who worships her daddy kinda makes me sad. Don't get me wrong I love that feeling I get when he gets home. She screams...DADDY, YOU'RE HOME I MISSED YOU! It truly makes my heart swell...but did I ever have that. I guess it doesn't matter now, but it does make me wonder what that kind of love for your dad feels like. Well...enough of my sob story.

Today is Erins' birthday. We have wrapped presents, and Ry made him a card...cute! We ordered him an ice cream cake from Coldstone Creamery...yum, but Ry reminded me that we have to get candles for the cake. So it's off to the store we go.

I hope you have a great week, and remember to love all you can when you have the chance.

Long time no blog!

Ok, so I haven't blogged in a long time. Well I think I have busy. Think being the operative word...

Tristan has been growing up so fast. I can't believe I missed all of this with Ryann. He is now crawling, and walking furniture. He weighs 24 lbs, and is in the 75% in his age group. I can't believe the difference between him and Ry at that age. T will be a year old pretty soon and I am looking forward to this.

Ryann is doing well. I enjoy being at home with her...even though most days I pull my hair out. She should be starting school this fall. She misses being with friends, and loved school in Idaho, so I think she is looking forward to this. Her new love is Star Wars...she is fascinated with the movies. Erin has to take C3PO to work with him everyday, and R2D2 gets to stay home with us. There has been several times I have forgotten R2 in the house when we go out, but Ry always has my back and has him with her. Thank goodness.

Life as I knew it had definitely changed. We have now been in Texas for 4 months. We are doing well, but I miss being around friends and family. However, we have done much more sight seeing here than we ever did in Idaho.

This last weekend we ventured to Dallas. We had fun visiting the Dallas Aquarium...not that I would have planned to spend that much money ($60.00 for 2 adults and 1 child) in one place (other than Disneyworld), but it was fun and beautiful. However I would not recommend that for an was more of a zoo with small exotic fish tanks. Not totally impresses. We also visited the Dallas Science & Nature Museum. That was fun. Ry is such a hands on little girl. These places are perfect for her. Everything there was child oriented and clean. After our little trip to the city we stopped in Arlington to have dinner with friends Lesley & Justin. Ryann enjoyed meeting new friends, and loved their cat Yoda.

I started scrapping again and remember why I love it so much. If only I had unlimited time to do this.

My mom is talking about coming to visit in March for T's birthday. Hopefully that will happen. I am also planning on visiting Wray this summer...again. I now miss home more than ever before. Hopefully we will be able to visit Idaho soon also.

Erins' parents visited us just after Christmas. It was so nice to see them again. We visited Austin when they were here...not that we saw anything, just Cabellas, and Sportsmans Wearhouse. That was kinda a trip from hell. Poor Paula got sick, and the kids were extremely bored. I don't necessarily enjoy those stores, because I have been to them before, and it was nothing new.

Well.................I think that is all I have to update on for now. I hope to do better at blogging, and keeping in touch with you all through my little ramblings.
