Body Pillow

Ryan gives the term "body pillow" a new meaning!!

This is how I find Ryan sleeping most mornings when i go in to wake him up. It's hard to see in these photos but because he's so tall and does not fit across the bed, his feet are both through the bed rails and up against the wall!

All that bed, and he only likes to sleep on top of his pillow! :)

Here's a glimpse... what I am working on in the craft room.

If only I were a better artist, this would be an easier project!!

Monster Jam!

Do you know...

Who LOVES Monster Jam???

Do you know who sat through a few hours...

Of watching Monster Jam and Megasaurus???

Do you know who LOVES Grave Digger???

And loves loud nosies and things that go VROOM???

If you guessed...

Ryan, you would be correct!

We're so glad our little man does so well with the loud noises and big trucks!

She's the Princess

Last weekend we had a great little visit at Kevin & Shannah's house with them, Michelle, David, Natalie, Papa & Grammy!

Here I am - Ryan on 1 arm and Natalie on the other. She eyeballed Ryan's sippy cup the entire time!

She finally got the cup in her mouth - and Ryan thought that was pretty funny!

And here she is with her Grandpa! She was just hangin' out!

It was a great day at the coast. Natalie sure is growing and changing and soon (in a few months) we'll be meeting our newest nephew when Kevin & Shannah's boy arrives! We look forward to many more fun, family visits with all the cousins together!

Where's my Motorcycle?

Hi Grammy!!

Check out Ryan's new motorcycle gear, on loan from our friend and neighbor, Bailey!

Ryan loves all things motorcylce related. In fact, his tricycle has become his new "motorcycle"!

I'm afraid I'm going to be a motorcycle mom instead of a soccer mom --- and that's ok, so long as there's enough Xanax within my reach!! HAHA (totally joking...well, maybe)!

Random Thoughts

  • As I type this, I am sitting in the bathroom watching Ryan take his bath. For the past 3 nights, Ryan has insisted on taking a bath (usually we skip a day in between, unless he's played outside and really needs to wash!) and he will stay in the bath tub for an hour if we would let him!
  • I should be doing something productive while Ryan is in the bath --- like clean the bathroom counters and sort laundry (but I would rather blog!).
  • I started working on some CUTE Easter gifts for the kids. I bought a little inspiration today at WalMart and have some motivation to work on them this weekend.
  • Ryan just told me, "I'm filfy" (translation: filthy)! HAHA! So funny!
  • I have 4 no-sew fleece blankets to make in order to finish my obligation for Disneyland Give a Day, Get a Day volunteer project. I need to just take the time to sit down and get busy!
  • Tomorrow is Friday and that means we are going to Monster Jam this weekend! Ryan is really excited. Every time we see the commercial on t.v. he stops what he's doing and says, "I want to go!"
  • I need to make some time to see my friends --- Tracy, I need to see your baby belly before little Hudson makes his appearance!! But I am also working on a crafty project for Hudson and I want to finish that to give you A.S.A.P.
  • I have a lot to do! I better get going and do at least 1 more thing before I call it a night and sit down to watch American Idol results show.

Happy (almost) Friday everyone! I've got some posts almost ready to publish with some recent pictures of the goings on in the Avila household lately...I'll get them up soon.
