I lost our camera and haven't been able to find it for the last two weeks so no pictures of Christmas unfortunately. We did take some video but don't have the right cord to connect our camera to the computer. Luckily we spent Christmas eve and most of Christmas day with my in-laws and my sister-in-law took pictures for us but she's now out of town and hasn't sent me any. I guess I'll have to post Christmas pics a little later!

I have an exciting announcement.... Jonah and Ryker are going to be big brothers! I'm so excited to have baby 3! I'm due June 11th and can't wait. I'm hoping it is a girl but another boy would be fun for the rest of the family. Michael has Jonah rooting for a boy luckily Ryker's too little to understand or he'd probably be turned to the "boy" side too! Whatever it is I'm just excited to add to our family Children are such blessings and they're just so darn cute!

I hope you all have had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

It's snowing today! I'm so excited I've never seen snow fall before I've only seen it already on the ground so I'm having lots of fun just watching it fall! It's not sticking to the ground but it's blowing through the air and looks so pretty! I hope it snows enough for us to actually play in it and I hope it snows for Christmas too! yay for snow---and heaters it's cold outside!

Jonah has discovered that he loves playing in the snow!

Ryker enjoyed from inside with me and got to sample a some snow. He liked to eat it even though his fingers were freezing!
These are pictures looking out from our front door the first was yesterday evening and the last is from this morning I was surprised that the snow was still here everyone thought it would have melted. The schools even got delayed 2 hours which was great so we could sleep in a little!


my family enjoying a bon fire

For Thanksgiving my Mom, Dad, Brother- Jason, and my Nana- mom's mom- came to visit us. It was so much fun to see them and Ryker absolutely loved all the attention! Jonah did too but Ryker was so happy all the time it was so cute!! we were so busy going and doing everything and anything! We went to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico and that was a lot of fun. Then we did pretty much all you can do in Alpine and a nearby city Fort Davis and we even went across the border to Ojinaga Mexico I was kind of nervous with the kids but it was a lot of fun and almost everything was so cheap! we bought Ryker a pair of cowboy boots for only $14 they probably would have been about $50 or more here! My brother brought his Nintendo Wii and Jonah got hooked on it, he was so good at bowling and baseball it was amazing! We might have to splurge and buy one someday soon I really like it too!! it was so hard to have my family here and then when they had to go they just aren't here anymore but we sure had fun with them!
