So we took Riley to see Santa at our ward party...As you can see in the pictures he was slightly apprehensive to sit on Santa's lap..these are the best shots we got what with all the "movement" he was making=)
So Riley is totally into Handy Manny these days....He evens trys to sing the song! In the song he says Vamanos ( in Spanish...) so we were trying to teach him to say it...Aaron broke it down into 2 words vama and nos. So Riley repeats after Aaron and says vama and then nos, naturally we were cheering and saying good job Riley....then he turns to Aaron and says daddy nose! The whole time he thought we were saying Mama nose.....so funny, we were cracking up, I had to write it down before I forgot!
While down south we took a trip to Vegas for our 8 YEAR Anniversary and caught the fountain show at the Balgio just in time.... Went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and took a little trip down memory lane visiting our old neighborhoods and houses while we had lived there for 5 years. Aaron had not even been back since we had moved here to Lehi so it was a fun look back...happy to be where we are now...
And dropped Hunter off at In and Out.....(to go with Krissy to Disneyland...lucky kid)
Ry-Guy had the CHEESE down for picture taking....I swear he wanted me to take a hundred pictures while he said "CHEEEEESE"
I love this "CHEEEESE" picture with Nathan, Hunter and Ry-Guy
And While I was out my sweet, lovely, hubby finished the Christmas lights...surprisingly no injuries to report this year...
So I'm feeling better than i have the last few weeks...maybe all I needed was a few good days in the sun in Mesquite! We had a great Thanksgiving weekend, I stayed with my mom on Wednesday night and kept her up until 1am! The two of us could really talk for hours about nothing really but I love our precious time together in between her working schedule...My mom and I have a really close relationship and I'm sure like most mother and daughters it is at times a love/hate relationship at times but she really is my parental rock and I know I can tell her anything with very little judgement and she will ALL WAYS give me her honest view point, I love her! Then Riley, Hunter and I headed to Mesquite and we had the usual group of Woods, Lee and Jones family...great food, good times, and as all ways a bit of drama...a tradition family Thanksgiving! It was a bit rainy on Thursday but I still let him play outside and get totally muddy...then the rest of the days were Great!!! So warm and sunny and I once again realized why people put up with those ridiculously hot months of Summer! Aaron came down on Friday...He rode is bike all the way from Salt Lake, but he said it was fine beside his sore bum! Then we rode 4 Wheelers and motorcylces, watched the motorcycle races, I took Arron to Twilght-which he liked- and we just hung out! I love it there and I love Arron's family,I am so blessed to have such a great extended family, so cute to see Riley with Grandma and Grandpa Woods.....So Picture are to come later!
Our Lives are crazy and full of unexpected ups and downs, Mostly clear skies ahead so we are holding on and trying to learn how to dance in the rain.....(just in case)Aaron and I have been married for 10 amazing years..Aaron is and will allways be my true love! We have a 2 sweet little baby boys Riley who is 4 and Jax Landon 21 months old and they have totally turned are world upside down for the absoulute better. Having them has made us both better people. We attened school and lived in Las Vegas for about 5 years and we have lived in Utah for about 5 years now.I work part time(2 days a week) as a hygienist and Aaron works for the city of Salt Lake. Things are going great with the occasional bump in the road (to keep us on our toes).... but we are just enjoying life, friends and family, We feel so blessed.
