Blogging Withdrawls

Last time I made contact with my bloggy buddies I was talking about my house being haunted, don't worry, the ghost didn't get me! I'm still here, just doing a horrible job blogging!
I have taken A LOT more pictures and I'm excited to share them with you.
I haven't got any good stories to share with you on this post, my week hasn't been that entertaining. I will say that Rylee went to the doctor Friday for her 18 month checkup and she is in perfect health!! Doc said she will be at least 5'8" (that's how tall I am). Right now she is 33 1/2 in long and 25 HEAVY pounds. That's my girl! She was so excited in the room because her bed was a hippo but she thought it was a cow, she mooed the whole time we were in there!

I love my Bella girl!
And my Rylee Grace!
Friday night Momma got to be pampered by Rylee. Well she just cleaned my ears (not really) but she pretended to.
Check out these "cheeese" faces...
Check out Rylee's house shoes. She loves them. Our floors stay cold during the winter so these keep those piggies warm!
And then she found Barney!
I have been having blogging withdrawls. I can't wait to read up on your blogs! Have a great weekend!

WW: I'm Just Going To Throw This Out There....

My house is HAUNTED!
Ok, I know I have said this before but after last night, I have NO doubt in my mind.
So let me do a little recap for the folks that have never heard this before. We live in an older duplex. We have two closet/rooms in the basement that are pretty creepy. One night around 11 pm we hear beating coming from the basement. We ignore it thinking it was our neighbor building something. The next day around 11 am Aaron is home alone and our neighbors are at work. He hears the noise again so he goes to the basement door and listens and the noise is coming from downstairs, from one of the closets. CREEEEEEPY!! He tried to ignore because he is a sissy like me.
Then there have been little things go on like Bella out of no where looking at the ceiling barking and her hair standing on ends. It takes a lot to calm her down. Or her standing in the hallway growling at something in the other room. Or Rylee and I playing in her room and she looks over my head at the wall and yells "HEEY" and laughs really hard while pointing at the wall. Those things are hard to brush off.
So on to the point of this story. Ever since we moved into this duplex Rylee has woken up almost every night crying. Sometimes she goes back to sleep but other times she is too scared to sleep in her room. Such as the case last night.
Around 3 am Rylee starts screaming crying. Not the slightly woken cry but the "GET IN HERE NOW!!" cry! So Aaron goes in there and brings her to back to me and I comfort her. Well we both end up falling asleep so at around 3:45 am I am woken up by one of Rylee's toys. It is this Elmo jack-in-the-box that her Aunt Susan and Uncle Darryl got her. It only talks when it's handle is turned. So I hear,
"Elmo's coming to see you soon!"
"Elmo can't wait to see you!"
"I'll be out in a minute!"
I jumped up, heart pounding. OK, really??!? Then I try to convince myself, it's Bella snooping around. So I yell "BELLA". She perks up head up, she laying right at my feet. So the fear sets in. Of course Aaron is not going to help, he just says...
"Go back to sleep, it'll go away."
This morning I look for that toy, thinking maybe the batteries are dying and it's starting to just talk whenever. Well it was under the kitchen table and let me tell you, that thing was NOT there last night. I picked up all the toys in the living room and that was not left out. HOW IN THE WORLD DID IT THERE??
That tops it, my house is haunted.
So on top of an 18 month rolling around all over me, butt in face, feet in belly, snoring in my ears, and slobber on my pillows, I have this toy talking!! I got NO sleep and I am very tired today. I hope tonight is more smooth.
Anyone a ghost hunter?? If so, HIT ME UP!!!!!

I ♥ Faces-Week 8- Hands On Fun

Rylee in the bathtub. I couldn't get a very good picture of her playing with her toys but she loves her Barbie!


I promised more pictures, and I am here to deliver!! So let me start by saying that Aaron cut his hair! Yup that is right. He went from this...
To this...
Nice "change"!!
There is nothing better than getting Bella howling!! Rylee even joins in and gets to howling!!

Once I get this new camera thing down pat I will edit pictures and make them "pop" more. I love my camera. I love taking pictures! If you have Nikon, tell me your favorite setting you like to use. There are so many options and I have mainly just used the "Auto" or "Child" setting. I want to hear more about how others feel about thier cameras. I also want to hear how you edit your photos, which program you use. I usually use Picnik but I would love to get familiar with Photoshop! Have a great day!!

Late Valentines Pictures....

Yeah I'm late posting these, sorry! But hey I'm doing it now! Valentines Day was a great one for us! Rylee got gifts and she loved them! Check it out...
Rylee got a T.V. to put in her room to watch Barney. So I went out and bought a new stand to put it on. As you can see from the pictures m dad had braces on his arms because his arthritis was so bad that day that his hands were swollen. He tried to help put together the stand but Rylee took over!!
Then it was time to dig into gifts!
Rylee got a new Barney, a "DOORRII" and a baby doll.
That's right she is Mommy's Lil Cutie
Check out this hair...
