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.
