An Update....

this is rylee's attempt to take her clothes off to go swimming. her head got stuck and that is as far as she got!

this is us at our ward's "trunk or treat" night. she would not wear the hat that goes with the costume while we were there and after about the 4th car she got a sucker and was satisfied. i have to admit, that was just fine with me!

isnt that just the cutest witch you've ever seen??

notice the glow all over Rylee's face?... She found the vaseline ... need I say more?

just another pic of the lovely greasy face

mike downloaded some movie trailers on the computer and now she is hooked! she wants to watch one every night before bed.

always wanting to help in the backyard! we can't keep her away from ANY tools.....if she sees us doing something, she wants to do it and of course does not want any help.

so proud of all her stickers!!

adyson is always chewing on her fingers....it must feel good on her gums...
this is the face that rylee gives me in almost every picture.....so cute, right??
me and rylee playing with lincoln logs and she couldn't wait to knock it over
Adyson just lovin her bottle! i love that she holds it!

Okay, so i know its been a while but.....i dont really have an excuse except for i dont understand how to use our mac computer and so i just keep putting this off. Not much has happened lately. We went to our wards "trunk or treat" night and it was fun to see rylee have her 1st real trick or treating experience. Although, she didn't care for the trick or treating as much as she did for stealing every little kids pumkins! Every time i came back from returning one, she had stolen another!! I guess i should have gotten her own!

Last weekend mike finally had some time to take off of work, so that was really nice. We got to finish some projects around the house, which seem to be endless!! it was so great to just hang out and not have an agenda or anything planned! He has been working like mad for the past couple of months, so it was nice to actually have some real family time. We love you for working so hard Mike!!!

That is about all the news i have for now.....I know....we are truly boring!

Adyson just turned 4 months old on the 19th and we have started her on rice cereal! she absolutely hates it!!! I feel so bad. i try feeding her at least 3 times a day and follow with a bottle like the Doc said to. It just doesnt work with her. She will just cry the whole time!! The poor thing.... she thinks she is going to get a nice warm bottle, but nope, it is nasty cereal for her! We havent gotten through very many feedings because after about the 3rd bite she is screaming and the only thing she wants is a bottle. It is hilarious to watch. I will have to feed her when Mike is around next time so that he can video it. I was hoping that with her eating the rice cereal she would sleep better at night.......not so much! She still wakes up at least 3 times a night. She is teething right now though, so i guess if its not the hunger or the reflux keeping her up, its the pain of teething! i feel so bad for her.....and why do i feel like i have no idea what i am doing and that this is my first time with a baby!?!? Probably because Rylee was the easiest baby ever!!!! The Big Man upstairs has some nice tricks....if Adyson was my first, i would have thought long and hard about another baby. I guess he knows what he is doing, right? Okay, i just read through that and i wasnt trying to make it sound like Adyson is a really hard baby, but having Rylee as my first......i knew the next wouldn't be as easy. Well, that is what is knew with us. I finally bought a new camera so i will be posting a bunch of new pictures soon.

Camera Suggestion Anyone??

Alright everyone, i need your input! Our camera that we keep at the house stopped working a long time ago so i was just having Mike bring home one of the cameras that he uses at work. That doesn't really work out that well because he is always needing it there. So needless to say, i need new camera! I want to know what cameras you guys have used and really love because i just dont have clue! I know, I know....Mike should know all about this kind of stuff and he does, he just doesn't use any other cameras than his professional ones. So if anyone has a camera that they love and isn't too pricey(under $300), please let me know so i can get some knew pics on the blog!!

Oh Rylee.....

I just thought that this was kind of funny.... so this morning i get Rylee out of her bed and then i go into my room to feed Adyson. Usually she just comes in bed with us, but she had dissapeared. So i called for her, and called for her, and called for her again. I get done feeding Adyson and go downstairs to find that Rylee had turned on the t.v., gotten into the pantry and found the chocolate chips that i keep in a ziploc bag in basket. She opened the bag and took out the ones that she wanted and closed the bag back up and was sitting in front of the pantry eating chocolate chips and watching t.v. You gotta love her!!!

Ok, so this what is new with us. Rylee has learned to climb out of her crib and take her diaper off and pee on things!!! what do i do?!?! I know it sounds kind of dumb, but it makes it so much harder and more time consuming to put her down for a nap and dont even get me started on bedtime! Laugh it up everybody.... it is kind of funny if it isnt happening to you. So i want to know, does anybody else have that problem, had that problem or know of anybody that did. i would love some tips and suggestions.
