Yes, family home evening a few weeks ago was a total mess, but we had a lot of fun.

Notice Ryan's tongue out in the picture above. That is a total Fila thing, although, I rarely do it.

Ryan really enjoyed himself and when I am brave again, we will get the paints out again!

Cake Anyone?

September is birthday season in our family and Ryan now knows what cake is and YES he really likes it. So, I didn't really let him have cake on his birthday--I didn't want to give him sugar yet.
Well, now that he is old enough to demand what everyone else is getting it's pretty hard to keep it away from the kid. I know the picture looks weird but he really was enjoying his cake. Thankfully, it was home-made carrot cake and yes, gluten-free to satisfy Jeanette.

Speaking of Ryan, I'll give a quick update. He is talking a lot more. Still doesn't say mama really! He does say truck, car, hana (for Mahana the dog), dog, duck, dada, and several other words.

He weighs in at a big 22 lbs. 3 oz. and 30 inches long.

He enjoys reading books, doing simple puzzles, playing in the car with his keys, going down the slid (if it's the big one he wants someone go to with him) and "helping" in the kitchen.

Today he learned to climb up and down on the kitchen chairs and was so excited. Every time he had a successful attempt he would start clapping for himself and saying "Yeahhhh!!" until Mike and I joined in.

That's all for now!


For my sister, Karen's birthday I took her family pictures. I think the only way to get Jason, her husband, to get family pictures done is for Karen to say it's for her birthday. Anyway, here are a few of them.
The kids from left to right: Max, Alex, Elsie, Ashlyn.

I especially like this picture of Max. He's really photogenic and such a cute kid.

And last but not least, one of the cute couple! I know Karen will really appeciate this!
