Ryker Party

Isn't this a great picture (nice job Shell!)? Brian stops Ryker from touching the flame right as the candle is being blown out.
These two friends sat right here, at least half of the time, pigging out on cheetos and M&M's.
Ryker loved his cake! I made a separate cake, without fondant, for him to dig into. I love these moments!

Ironically, his favorite present was the green ball-the least expensive of them all. Thanks Kaeden and Sheeva!
Our buddy Rustin was kind enough to help Ryker open his thoughtful! :)
We were so excited to borrow this water slide and thought the kids would love it. Well, Jaxon ended up being the only one to climb up and down and after a half hour, all the kids had enough. Maybe we'll try again next year. Here is our happy birthday boy at the end of the day. With cake in his belly and frosting in his hair, he was ready for a nice long nap. Thanks to everyone who came and made the day so much fun! We love you all!

My Baby Turns One!!

I cannot believe it has been a year already since this happy little butterball graced our lives. Since we're throwing him a party Saturday, we didn't do the regular b-day stuff today but we did take him to McDonalds to play for the first time. He LOVED it! Here he is laughing at me. For some reason he thought it was funny when I leaned over to share my ice cream cone.

I had to go with him through the kiddie tubes (yuck!) and he was so excited, he didn't know what to do with himself. He loved every bit of it until we came out the end of the slide and he realized we weren't in them anymore. :)
See, he's happy long enough to snap a picture and then next is the screaming of bloody murder!
I think Jaxon is finally getting a little more photogenic for me. Thanks son!
I loved his ice cream face but Mr. grumpy pants daddy kept wiping it off!
Here's a picture from earlier this week when Ryker fell asleep on our jet-ski ride at the lake.I was just helping my mommy hang up the clothes. I don't know why she's laughing so hard. :) (In case you can't tell, those are my shorts!)

Anyone ever see "The Office" episode with Jello?

My funny, funny family thought it would be just so hilarious to put my stapler and mouse in Jello...well, it was actually pretty hilarious. They of course made sure to use green Jello as I have a very small obsession with that color.
Check out my awesome new green camera! It can take pictures under water! My dad and brother went to Hong Kong and Hong Kong has some electronics for cheap and I asked them to pick me up a camera if they had one in bright green. Obviously they were successful. They were also the same two people who ruined my office supplies at work but I hear it wasn't their idea...SHELLI! It was a pretty fun day and I'm excited to come up with a pay back plan-anyone got any ideas?
