BFF's - Ryan & Spooky

This is how Ryan totes Spooky around the house...

Spooky doesn't seem to mind (much)!  Every morning Ryan says, "Where's Spooky?  He needs to do his stretches!"  And then proceeds to hunt Spooky down, pick him up, tilt him to the left and the right, to the front and the back and then tells me that Spooky is doing ballet!  HA! 

Ryan refers to Spooky as his "brutha"!  When I asked him, "You mean your 'brother'?"  He said, "No, mom.  He's my 'brutha'!  All righty, glad we cleared that up then!

In other news, Ryan is all signed up for Kindergarten!  Can hardly believe that in 3 months my little guy will be off to school!  Everyone asked if I cried when I took him in today.  Nope!  In fact, Ryan did enough crying for the both of us I think.  He cried when we got to the District Office because he thought we were dropping him off and leaving him there for "school."  Once he understood that it was just for a quick meeting and to sign some paperwork, he calmed down a bit.  He wrote some letters and then acted shy in front of the employees at the District Office.  I can only imagine how the first day of school is going to play out.  Maybe by then I can have him completely excited and not afraid!?

Lady Antebellum

One of my Christmas gifts this past year was tickets to see Lady Antebellum in Fresno in March.  A little late, but here are a few pictures of the concert!

Thompson Square opened the show and they were SO GREAT!...

Darius Rucker was also there!  He rocked!!...

And then...Lady A!

Half way through Lady A's set, they called Thompson Square and Darius Rucker back to the stage and they all performed together!

Lady A closing the show.

I had such a great night!  Thanks for the fun concert tickets, Jake!!  Too bad we didn't take any pictures of US at the concert! :)

Funny Sayings

Ryan is always saying something hilarious.  I really should take a notepad with me everywhere I go, just to write down the funny things that Ryan comes up with!

This morning on the drive to Nanny's house, I was putting on lip liner and Ryan says, "What are you putting on mascara for?" 

Me: Laughing, told him, "It's lip liner and lipstick." 

Ryan: "What do you need that for?"

Me: "Because my lips are dry."

Ryan:  Thinking about it for a second, he says,"I just lick my lips when my lips are dry, cause I don't have lip liner."  :)

Well, all right then!  Ha ha!

A little About ME!

Today I'm linking up to Kelly's Korner blog - to meet some new people who may live near me!!

Hi, I'm Patty!  And this is my blog! :)

I live in Central California (Fresno area) and am a married, full-time working, mommy to one FUN little boy, Ryan!

I don't blog nearly as often as I'd like to, but I read blogs every single day.  :) 

We keep pretty busy around here these days.  Ryan will start school in the Fall, and right now is venturing into the sport of BMX racing!  We currently have tee-ball one night per week, swim lessons start on Monday for 2 weeks, BMX practice 2 days per week and racing on the weekends.  On top of that, Jake (the hubby) plays softball 2 nights per week.  AND, I just became a Consultant for Paparazzi Accessories - on top of my full-time, Monday through Friday job - so I'm busy with home parties and events selling Paparazzi ($5.50 jewelry & accessories)!  FUN STUFF!

So, if you're in the area, and you'd like a new friend, I always have room for new friends! :)

Happy weekend, friends!

Phone pictures

Thought the blog could use a little updating...it's been a while since I've posted!

Since I rarely take pictures using an actual camera, here are some recent pics from my cell phone:

Ryan and Natalie using Papa's Kindle to play games.  Or, actually, this looks more like Ryan not sharing Papa's Kindle!

Ryan told us he was going to watch Supercross in our room one afternoon.  This is how we found him a few minutes later, sound asleep with the remote as close as it could be to him (and wearing socks with his swim trunks - haha!)!

We got a kitty!  Ryan named him Spooky!  This is Spooky on the ride home to meet Ryan for the first time.

Here is Spooky trying to play Monster Trucks with Ryan!  It is so fun to watch him sneak up on the trucks and pounce on them!  Ryan thinks it is really funny, too!

That's about all I have for today.  Ryan starts swimming lessons and pee wee t-ball in the next few weeks.  I'll be sure to post pictures of that soon! :)
