Last fall we had a Fiesta with some friends and family. It was a ball! We had a yipping contest, learned the Mexican Hat Dance from my sister-in-law, Kari Jonas, who was 8 months pregnant at the time (we had a good laugh at that), a tequila drinking relay (sprite with gummy worms at the bottom), a pinata, and a big taco dinner. Then we took some fun pictures of each family in the traditional garb. Here's some of the pictures below.
Below is the Buckley Family. Matt grew up with Ryan, and Julie and I met in college. We hooked them up and they tied the knot a few months later. They have two children, Guage and Bailey. They live near us.
Below is Ryan's sister Kaylee's family. Her husband is Tim and they have 3 children, Reilley--17, T.J.--15, and Aubrey 10. We thought it would be funny to name our next child Christian. Then we'd have a Christian Reilley and they would have a Reilley Christian.

Here's my little rug rats. Hunter just turned 6, Connor is 3 and Teagan is 15 months. They are the best of buds. Connor is now old enough to play with Hunter and follow along with the whole 'pretend' world. Teagan just follows as close behind as he can manage. Whenever he sees a crack in the door he squeels with glee and hussles to get there. He loves to be outside.

O.k... so if there is one thing that my husband and I have in common it is that we are about 3-5 years behind the technology (which is like being 15 years behind because it's... well-- technology!!!) So, I am so proud of myself that I am actually taking the plunge and setting this blog up. I was inspired by my brother's and sister's blogs and so enjoyed being able to see their pictures and hear about their day to day goings on (stuff they'd forget to talk about when I call them, but the stuff life is really made of.) So if I'm the only one who reads this, so be it! It will get me journaling, which I struggle to keep up with as I run after 3 little boys with boundless energy and a husband who likes to hike 15 miles in one day. I don't have a chance! As it is, I'm creating this at 12:30 in the morning cause it's the only time I have alone.
