The day after Thanksgiving, my parents took Ryan and I, along with Matt, Becky, the kids and Jesse, on a cruise to Ensenada, Mexico, in celebration of their anniversary. We made some great memories!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! Still going strong after 25 years. What a great example!

For Thanksgiving Ry and I were able to celebrate with both of our families. We had so much fun!

Family Time

Sunday night Ryan and I had the opportunity to spend some time with our sister and brother-in-law and their kids. We had a great time! It was so good to catch up. Tara made this killer dinner (find it here). Here are a few pics of the cute kiddos!

The Boys

Meet my boys... the boys that I see 4 days a week, that I play with, that I love. They're very sweet, and I want to you get a glimpse of the everyday joys of being part of their lives.
Meet Gavin. He is 2 years old, and lots of fun. Generally he's very laid back, but when he's around his cousins or had too much sugar, he gets a little crazy. As you can see, he really likes cupcakes! He also loves to eat pistachios. He will hand some to me and say "aben, aben" (open). So cute! He laughs and giggles at everything, and is a very happy boy. Sweet Gavey!!

Although, he's not sweet right away....
But after a nice bottle and Dragon Tales, he's back to his normal, sweet self.

Now meet Gavin's little brother, Dallan. Dallan is 6 months old, and is starting to do all kinds of new things, like sitting up, army crawling, and holding his own bottle (yay!). He is very into cuddling and being held.

Good morning!

He also loves to push himself around, and being a part of all the action. And chew on his favorite toy!And, fortuately, the boys kinda like each other!
Bath time!
I love my job!!!!!
