Christmas was great!!!

This Christmas was wonderful! We had so much fun and Isabel loved it! Here are some shots from our Christmas morning: Ryan bought me a spot cleaner. I love it!!! It was the main thing I wanted and I have already used it once.
Isabel picked out this little hand held game for Ryan and was so excited for him to open it. It was so cute to watch her as he opened it.

Grandma DeLong always makes jammies for the grandkids. Isabel loved hers and has worn them every night since Christmas. They were a big hit!

Isabel gave Lucy this rattle. Doesn't Lucy looked thrilled?

Santa brought Isabel a scooter. She loved it! She rides it on the deck and around the house all day. That Santa is great!
On a side not, Isabel also got her white spoons. I'm not sure which was better, the scooter or the spoons. She was easy to please.

Happy Anniversary

Today makes 5 years of marriage for me and Ryan. I can't believe it. I wish I had a cute picture from our honeymoon to show you, but I can't find them. The past 5 years have been very full years. We have moved 6 times (that includes building 3 houses), have had 5 different cars for me, 2 different trucks for Ryan, and had 2 children. It's definately not been boring. I am really hoping that the next 5 years are a little less busy. I love Ryan so much and I am so grateful for him. He is a wonderful, patient husband. Sometimes I feel like I should apologize for being so grumpy and moody. I am a lucky girl though and I am looking forward to the next 5 years. Happy Anniversary Honey! I love you!! Thanks for being so great!

I love my kids

I have really been enjoying my kids lately. They are so cute and keep me entertained all day long.
Lucy is SO much better. She sleeps through the night (thank you Babywise), takes good naps, and smiles all the time. All the hard work of training her to sleep was worth it. Babywise can be hard, but totally worth it. She is not even 3 months old and she will go 10-12 hours at night; love it! Isabel is doing great too. This is her room, which she loves! Emily helped me make her name to go above her bed. I don't think she knows what it says, but loves it. I asked her what is said and she said "Princess", so yeah she doesn't know. Her room is so bright and cheerful. I love it!
Mom, Lisa gave me these jammies that you made for Lulu a few years ago and Isabel LOVES them! They are the only jammies she wants to wear. Thanks, even though they weren't origianlly made for her.

No one can make Lucy smile like Ryan. She loves her dad.

Isabel and I were watching Bambi about 2 weeks ago when we had the following conversation:

(This was during the part when Bambi's dad comes to save him)

Isabel: Is that Bambi's dad?
Renee: Yes. Bambi has a good daddy, huh?
Isabel: Kangaroos make good dads.
