Tanner's Awsome Bed

Tanner just got a new bed and I'm pretty sure he likes it. When he got up on it for the first time he said "This is the most awesome bed in the world!". The spiderman sheets were a bonus!Rylee likes it almost as much as Tanner. The bad thing is that she has already figured out how to climb up the slide with her bare feet. Little stinker! Hopefully we can avoid the ER due to broken limbs.

Happy Birthday Rylee!

Our baby girl has turned one! I can hardly believe it had already been one year.

We had a pig party for her. She was just about to give the piggy a kiss!

As you can see, she had plenty of help opening her presents. They were a little more excited about it than she was anyway.

Her aunt Kendra gave her some books that she already loves. She wanted to look at them all as soon as they were opened.

She actually blew out her candle! I was so surprised. Tanner was a little disappointed because I didn't think that she would so I told him to help her, and he didn't even get to. But he soon got over it because then it was time to eat the cupcakes that he had been waiting to eat ALL DAY!

It was so funny how dainty she was eating the cake. She just picked all the pink dots off, and as soon as she was ready, she dove right in. She loves having her hands all messy!

These are the cupcakes that I had to hurry and make because the cakes I tried to make didn't turn out. I thought that they turned out pretty good for a last minute project. Now I remember why I always pay someone to do it for me!
Rylee had a fun birthday. Thanks to all of the family that were able to come an celebrate with her!

We had a great time this past week preparing for Halloween. Tanner asked everyday if he could wear his costume. Time is such a hard concept for little kids to understand.With much persuasion on my part, Jimmy 'helped' Tanner carve some scary pumpkins to greet our trick-or-treaters. Tanner picked out the designs he wanted and supervised Jimmy to make sure he was doing it right. He was very impressed with them and went outside every ten minutes to look at them again and again.

Tanner and his pumpkins.
On to Halloween. Rylee was a little Punk Rocker, complete with tattoos and a pink mohawk. She looked so cute. She was loving playing in the pumpkins.

Tanner, of course, was Spiderman. I bet you didn't know that Spiderman wears cowboy boots. It was fun to have Tanner get a little more excited about it this year.

Tanner had an unfortunate accident that rendered his Spiderman costume unwearable, so I had about five minutes to hurry and think of something else. Thank goodness for Poppy Jeffery and his cowboy paraphernalia. It was a quick fix, but he makes one cute cowboy.

We had fun this year with the kids. I do have to say, though, that I am glad it's over. we are now looking forward to the upcoming holidays and time with family.
