It's Amazing

The Date April 4, 2008. In case some of you don't, know that was my due date, and since I'm the one taking all of the pictures, I was obviously not wanting to be doing something else then taking pictures. BUT, if ya can't go in to labor on your due date (and you've been having contractions for almost 2 months) then the next best thing would be to get to see your kids learn how to ride their bikes without training wheels for the first time. In my opinion, the one makes up for the lack of the other.
Okay so this is how it went down. Raya wanted to learn to ride without training wheels, so Phil took them off. She told Dad "Don't look", so he went into the garage to fix Landon's training wheel that broke. Ten seconds later he looks out at the street, and there is Raya, speeding down the street on two wheel's. So then Landon takes his bike out to the street and says he want to learn how. With in 10 minutes Landon is doing the same thing. Raya is 5, and Landon is 3 1/2. We just couldn't believe it. It was a great day to be a parent.

Is It On Straight?

Oh Yeah HOT MAMMA!!! little girl doesn't search out Mom's lipstick to then go and turn themselves into what they think is the next top model. But I must say, if you can get over the fact that you pay quit a bit for Mac lipstick, it is a fun and eventful time in life.

Mmmm...I love simple dinners. You know, the kind that takes about 4 1/2 minutes to put together and then there is only 1 pan dirty at the end of it. LOVE IT!! Not to mention the fact that all of the kids were happy and liked what they were eating. I guess I should supply a "Honey Baked Ham" all the time. NOT!! I could only imagine the increase in my grocery bill every month. Does any one want to share tried and true, kid loved, really, REALLY, fast dinners? Those are things that I seriously lack.

So, a little more insight into me... four years ago, I cut out these letters to make Raya's name. Well, last week, I finally decorated them and now they are ready to hang on the wall. I am SO EXCITED!!! I love them. My sister Elisia helped me place the embelishments. Lets just say she is amazing at whatever she touches. Now I am totally set on doing my other kids names. I can't wait!
