Am I a slacker?

Oh no.. I fear that I am slacking in this whole blogging stuff. I hope hope hope I can keep it up! We have had a BUSY week. We went to two different MOMS groups this week, had a fun dinner/ playdate with some friends, saw my grandparents, hungout with my mama, the list goes on... Ryder had an xray and blood work on Monday and it all came back NORMAL! I am SOOOOOO beyond happy, he is such a trooper. 

Saturday we went down to Jimmy Macks downtown for Marks 50TH Birthday!! It was a lot of fun, we brought baby along with us.... 

So I am currently in the Christmas spirit. I usually don't get like this but I think with having a new baby it makes it that much better. I have broke out SOME decorations (not many) and even got Ryder an ADORABLE santa hat!! 

My grandparents came by on their way to the beach on Monday, then they came back by today on their way back home... here is a picture of Ryder and his great grandpa!!

Latest happenings...

Well, not much has been going on around here. That isn't necessarily a bad thing in my opinion. On Tuesday we stayed home ALL DAY and did housework and laundry. We did 10, yes ten, loads of laundry. Every single towel we owned was dirty and ALL of our clothes. I can now say though that laundry is done, folded, put away and our house is CLEAN! Ryder had an X-ray on Monday of his chest. It came back CLEAR yay! I was so shocked and surprised, but thrilled! He is such a strong little bugger. Goes to show the power of prayer! :)   

Love this picture of Ry... He is so stinking cute!

Yesterday we went to our MOMS group i Newberg. We have been going to the one in Sherwood on Wednesdays but Ryder has been sleeping in past the start time haha. So we tried out Newberg. There were two dads there! It was fun but we like Sherwood's group better :)  had to run a bunch of errands and stopped by my mom's office for lunch. It was nice seeing her, we love her SO much! Here are some pictures we took while we were there...

Happy Halloween!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Uncle Travis and Auntie Stacey came over last night and brought their girls to trick-or-treat and say hello! It was so nice to see the girls dressed up in their Halloween costumes. I even got "stung" by little miss Pey's stinger ;) Alex was a cat, Maddy was a flapper, Peyton was a bee, and Ryder was the U of O mascot Puddles. We attempted to get a cousins picture, they turned out cute despite everyone looking in opposite directions :)

(Ryder has lipstick lips mark on the side of his head from Maddy!)

 More kisses for the baby...

Uncle Travis and Austin were in the new "theatre room" discussing the platform and design of the room. We did get a picture of Uncle Trav and Ryder.. they were both Duck fans for Halloween! Well, actually they are both always Duck fans!!

Can you tell they are related!???

We spent our first Halloween as a family passing out candy to the neighbor kids, making dinner together, hanging out with some family... we were going to make carmel apples but we kinda forgot so we will make them tonight! I LOVE LOVE LOVE carmel apples and I can't believe I forgot about them last night! Today is a "fun filled" day of housework... lucky me! Maybe I will post a blog update about my wonderful day of housework... I know you all wanna read about that! HA
