Well he has arrived!!!! And precious is he. If you haven't checked Leia's blog yet I'll give you ome of the details. Nater Tater was born March 28, 2008 at 10:00 pm he weighed 7 lbs 2 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. Riley and I just missed getting to see him born but Leia and Mom said Lori was a real champ. Here are few pics from the hospital.

Can't ever give too many baby kisses!!!

Eyes wide open. He likes to look at his Aunt Lacy.

I can't let Riley be the only binkie baby!!!

Gigi and Nater.

Riley loves her new cousin. She gets pretty mad when you take him away from her.
Bringing home baby was tough on Dad and Cousin Riley.
Doesn't look like Nate loves Riley as much as she loves him.
Grammy and her Grandbabies. An attempt at it anyway.

Can you believe we got them all to sit for a second!!! What a bunch!!! Won't they have sooo much fun.
We are so happy to have Nater Tater here. Riley and I can't wait to see him again and see how much he has changed. We love him so much already!!! Congratulations Lori and Scott you made a precious baby!!!!

Yes I'm blogging AGAIN!!!

Hard to believe but for 2 days in a row the weather in Woodward was windless!!!! I decided to take Riley out to Boiling Springs, we hardly ever go out there seeing as how close we live to Crystal Beach but it was sooo nice and Gregg is in Chichasha with the baseball team so we didn't have anything to get home to so I decided to go on out for awhile. It has everything Riley loves.... water and dirt!!! And for those of you that have never seen her smile in a picture, which is a lot of you, I finally got a few smiles!!!
She probably would have climbed on this rock all day if I would have let her. She loves chairs or anything she can sit on.

She loves the dirt and she loves to throw it!! No Mother I didn't spank her for it, almost when she tried to throw it at me.

Finally a smile!!!!
Throwing dirt in the water.
She wanted in soooo bad.
So I let her, yes in that dirty water. She was a mess by the time we got home.

My Little Bug is NOT so Little Anymore!!

Yesterday was another beautiful day here in Woodward, so again we spent all evening outside. Riley loves it outside!!! But I was sad to see how fast my little Bug is growing. It seems like just yesterday I was having to pick her up and put her on the slide and down she would go. Yesterday she figured out how to get up all on her own!!! Man how time does thing you know she'll be graduating high school. HAHA!! Anyway here are some pics of her making her way up the slide. What a big girl she is!!!!
On her way up!!
Almost there!!!
Of course she wouldn't wait for me to get a picture of her sitting on down she goes!!!
YYEEEAAAHHH!!! You did it!!!!
Here's just few extra pics we took while playing.
Typical Riley face when I'm trying to take a picture. Of course she goes right back to smiling after I put the camera down.
What's that???!!!! A half of a smile!!!
If only I knew what was coming out of that mouth!!! She'd probably get a spanking.
I'm just loving this blogging. All of you are probably getting sick of all the pics but it's just so fun. Oh and here's some big news. We heard from Lori yesterday....she's going in the hospital Thursday evening and they will start to induce on Friday!!! Oh we are sooooo excited. Be expecting pics of Baby Nate....Coming Soon to a blog site near you!!!!!

Easter acutally turned out to be a lovely day. Dad and Mom came down for the weekend and Spence, Leia and Cash were down so we all got together and had a great Easter. Cash and Riley hunted eggs...well Riley hunted eggs and brought them to Cash and Cash pretty much.....well ate the grass. He still had a great time playing outside. Thank goodness for the nice weather!!! We did miss Aunt Lori and Uncle Scott. Aunt Lori can't travel until baby Nate gets here. And we are anxiously waiting his arrival!!!

Nana took us for an Easter pedicure. Riley liked to put her feet in the water and Nana even let her splash the lady a few times....till she realized what she was doing of course. I couldn't believe she sat there the entire time we were there.

Little Billie, Sage and Blayre came over for a little bit. Blayre and Riley just played and played they had a really good time. I wish they didn't live so far away!!! We really miss them all!!!

Here's Ri in her pretty dress that Nana got her and probably going through hers and Cash's Easter Basket!! Oh and don't forget the cute bow from Aunt Leia!!! Matched perfectly!!!

Which one looks happier to be getting their picture taken??!! Gregg gave up an extra day of fishing and golfing so he could spend Easter with us. What a good looking pair!!!

Hugs from my Bug!!!!

Finally a smile!!!

Our attempt at getting a picture of them together.

Let the egg hunting begin!!!

The Second Part of Spring Break!!

Riley and Mom Bachin it For a Few Days.

Gregg went fishing and golfing for few days over springbreak so Riley and I did a little of our own. It was soooo beautiful here on the 18th. Just perfect!! So after work I took Riley to the park she had a great usual.

I'm pretty sure she would swing till she puked. Oh wait she has!!!

Quack Quack.
The new toys and Crystal Beach are just great for little ones. We go to the park as much as we can. I can't wait till the weather settles down.

Family Vaction!

My Little Snow Bunny!!

Well we had our first family ski trip to Angel Fire. Had a few bumps in the road (literally) but all in all we had a great time. Riley and I didn't do any skiing but we did take her sledding and she ended up having a good time doing that. She loved the snow that's all she would talk about, she hated her gloves and boots. We started the trip pretty good got out of Woodward pretty early and headed to Guymon, that's where we had our first bump. I didn't bring an OK map so I was winging it well I winged us right passed our turn and to Goodwell we headed. We didn't realize we were headed the wrong way till we got to Texahoma and finally we stopped to get a map, I saw that if we take HWY 95 we will hit 412 which is where we should be. So off we went, bump #2. We saw the sign but decided we could make it across which we did all the while listening to Gregg and how the Sheriff was going to be on the other side waiting, he of course was not and we made it to HWY412. We did finally make it to Angel Fire and everything was great once we found our "Chalet" and some good food.

Riley saying "cheeese"

Her first look at ski boots. I think she really wanted to put them on.
The only boots she does like

Well we made it to Angel Fire and had a great time. Gregg and Pepper skied on Saturday and Riley and I hung out. Sunday Gregg and I took Riley sledding she wasn't sure what to think at first but she really liked it, laughed all the way down, once she got the hang of it. Later that day Gregg kept Riley and Pepper and I headed to Red River to do some shopping. We had a really great time there. Next time Red River is where I want to go!!! Monday we headed home and took only 1 maybe 2 wrong turns but we made it!!! It was a great time. I can't wait to go back and actually get to do some skiing myself. I'm sooooo glad that Gregg decided to go and that we took Riley. It was a lot of fun. I hope the fam didn't cramp Pepper's style too much. Thanks so much to Pepper for letting us all go on her vaction. She's a great friend and if anyone knows of any single hot males...... she would be perfect!!!!!

Pepper and Ri enjoying some cheesecake.
We had a slight addiction to cheesecake while we were there.
We had a slice everwhere we could get one.

Riley and Daddy in control.

Riley and Mommy out of control!!!

See guys...what a hottie she is. Even with a ski burn!!
