To Celebrate or not To Celebrate!

Ok, so I am a very bad friend. I forgot one of my very best friends birthday this week! She said she didn't care, it was just another day. I disagree! It is the day she was born, the day She changed the world! Am I weird? Are birthdays only for kids to celebrate? I am not big on surprises and I don't think big extravagant gifts are needed, but I think birthdays are important! For those of you, who I have no idea when your birthday is, Happy Birthday!, in advance....and CELEBRATE!
just a couple pics of Madee and Maridee on Madee's last birthday. They are Princesses!

I'm Hooked!

I know it has only been a few days, but I am hooked! I can't believe how many people I have been in contact with already! It is so fun reading all your blogs and seeing what you are up too.
I thought I would share some fun pictures of Rylee and some of the fun things we did this summer.

We got season passes to Lagoon for the first time this year. We had a blast, the older kids went with us, with their cousins and with their friends. Rylee had fun too, even though she could only ride the carousel, she took some really good naps in her stroller! Madelyn(our 7yr old) went on Wicked(the big scary roller coaster) the very first day and loved it! She had to sit in a booster seat!

We went to yellowstone on our family vacation. We love Yellowstone, Roger and I went there on our honeymoon and we love to take the kids.

We also went to the Famous Preston Night Rodeo. I think I have only missed it once in my life. I love it and I am so glad that I can make this childhood memory one for my children too.

I can't believe we are in the full swing of fall and summer is over, but what fun we tried to have! I hope you all had a great summer too!

Well, I am definately new to this blogging thing. Wow, I feel old and out of touch. But I am going to give it a try. I hope this will give be an opportunity to catch up with some lost friends, and keep up with friends close by.

The last year has been great fun for us, having our little bonus baby. Rylee is a doll, and we all love her so much. My older kids are such great helpers. I can't believe she is almost a year old!She is part of the reason I thought blogging would be a crazy thing to do, but it just sound like too much fun!

We are suffering from the fall bug. The kids seem so excited about school, and are doing well (Roger and I hope it keeps up!) Preschool is up and running and I have a great group of kids. Now we just need the chill in the air and the leaves to start changing and Fall will be in full swing!
