The Picture Post

We survived a week of Disney World.  All of our Dreams Came True.  It was absolutely magical.

We hugged Buzz Lightyear

Flew high above the Earth in a Rocket Ship.

Walked through Cinderella's Castle.

Rode the boats through a Small World.

We got really hot and sticky.  He got delirious. 

We posed for lots of pictures.

Leo and Annie were a sweet surprise.

We watched Parades.

We saw lots of Little Green Army Men.

We gave a few High Fives.

We decided to give shrinking the kids a try.  It was fun.  We could hardly see them :)

We walked countless miles behind this stroller.

We drove through a Safari and saw some amazing animals.

  He got sick :(  He hung with us though...motrin and tylenol work small miracles!

He finally met his "Best Pal" Pluto.  Of course "Little" Pluto was there to say Hi.  It was amazing.  Truly.

We got all dressed up for a Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

We went Buzz Lightyear Crazy.

We danced with Jessie.

We fell in love Jessie.  I think Jessie liked him too.

We stayed up REALLY late.

We waited in some REALLY long lines.

Those long lines were worth the wait for moments like this.

We were very Brave!

We stood in a few more lines. He mostly didn't fuss about the wait. :)

We couldn't have done it without Grandparents by our side.  They are the BEST and we are Blessed to have them in our lives.

Happy Birthday Ryder!

I can't believe you're 4-years old today!  It sounds so much older than three.

 He isn't feeling good today, but he still wanted to bake himself a cake and try out his new Tony Hawk Bike. 

It's green.  His second favorite color ;) In true Ryder fashion, he also asked us to please shout "surprise" for him.

At10:35 a.m. on September 25, 2007 our lives were forever changed by your sweet and funny little self.  Life would be so vanilla without you.  We love you so much! 

Feel better little man...its no fun being sick on your Birthday.

Pinterest Party

Its R&R's birthday month!  Sometimes I can't remember life without these two and then other days its hard to believe 4 years has gone by so seems like yesterday that we brought Ryder home.  None the less, in just about a week we will have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.  We had a small party over the weekend to celebrate....most of the things on this table are courtesy of Pinterest.  Best place ever.  Really it is.

I am so thankful for this beautiful evening and those four little bare-feet playing outside. How imperfect my life would be without them. I couldn't imagine a better night for a backyard picnic!

Splendorific Soiree

My older sister threw a Splendorific Soiree (after being educated on all things Fancy Nancy I can translate this word to mean "Party") on Saturday for my niece's 4th Birthday.  Seriously.  It was over. the. top. Amazing!  All of the girls (and Ryder) had such a good time.  There was fancy food, fancy punch, necklace making, finger painting, lipstick wearing good times to be had.   Absolutely no way I could have pulled something this fancy off!  Can't wait to see her wedding one day ;) 


Fancier x2

Yummy to the Tummy Cupcakes

Tu-tu Party Favors.  Ahem.  Really?  Yes.

Bead Central.  I was mistaken for a professional photographer.  I mean surely if you throw a party this fancy, you hire a photographer too!  Ha!
Birthday Girl!  Miss Anna.  Exactly 2 weeks older than her Cousin Ryder!

My little bear was the only boy.  He broke my heart when I found him here.  All by his lonesome.  He didn't seem to care.  He had Popcorn and PB&J.  Those both make this boy happy.

Silly Girl!

She invited him to sit with her.  My heart is fixed.  :)
