Ryan is 4... whew that Was fast..

I can remember the day he was born detailed more than  I remember my wedding day and graduations. That sweet baby in the picture kept me up from 2am to 5am most nights, We could set the clock in the evenings by when he would start and stop crying.

By this age he was showing that I am either really really happy or really not. But his BELLY laugh was contagious!! This was the age that Pete came home and Ryan was in the excauser and he said " aww. I want 5 kids he is soo fun.." You notice we only have 2 kids.. I told  him,well you can have the other ones.

This was the Ryan is into everything but takes fun pictures stage.

                                               He really did calm down once Lily was born. He has really sweet moments with her. When Lily is upset he sings Jesus Loves Me to her.Yep alot of the time he is the reason she is crying.. but she is a different post.
I love that he is older now, I love looking at his younger pics, but I wouldnt go back to those day for anything
He has such an enthusiam for life and the energy to go with it. His tempermant is a lot closer to balanced now.When he gets upset or really tired, he still takes awhile to wind down. However, He loves people and espically strangers so that makes outings very entertaining.. I am really enjoying watching him grow.. There was a time when I thought I would never have a baby so he is defianety an answer to alot of prayer..I always remember that on a bad day.. thankfully those are less and less now that he is older, its more like "moments" I am excited to see what he will grow up to be and do and who he will marry.. I hoping he wrecks his bike alot so he wont wreck his car... 

The Last Month..

Well I had Hoped to be one of those that posts everyday but yea, that is not going to happen. but maybe one day I will figure out how to post pics like all the savy tech moms out there.. dont hold ur breather so far I had to reload and edit this 4 times due to interupptions and well kids...

Last month we took our kids to California,on a plane!! and other than running thru the Denver airport like a crazy scene from a movie, they did really well on the planes.. Lily sat on my lap on the planes and took naps. Ryan played on his leapster most of the time.

California was a blast. Only a few minor hiccups- Like not getting there with Ryan's clothes for the wedding, that was fun.. Trying to find black slacks in September was a mess, however the local Salvation Army had a pair for under $4!(Lori was a lifesaver here too) oh and hotel reserverations ended in Porterville 6hrs before the wedding and the other was in a different town far away from the wedding... Thankfully my awesome sister-in- law Lori and (and Pete's brother Chance) helped out soo much!! Yep, 9 of us getting ready in a hotel room was fun!! We always laugh alot with them so we got really spoiled see them several days in a row. The whole reason we went there was for Trenton and Christi's wedding, which was beautiful and the reception was a BLAST!! (Lori and I were wrangling 5 kids during the ceremony)

However, I cant get the pictures from the top to the bottom, so bare with me as I still navitage this thing... Its great that now the Matthiesens have finally added some girls.. When I married Pete, the farm was dominated with boys that didnt shut doors when they went to bathroom, often forgot thier clothes when going from shower to thier rooms.. and now almost 9 years later with the additions of Lori,Christi,Lily and Lola, there is more of a balance!! YAY!

We also have been to the State Fair and an Apple Orchard!

Now we are planting wheat! (Well Pete is ) I am ready for the Farm stuff to slow down for the winter. I love the hustle and bustle of Harvest in June but I am ready to continue getting the 1970's out of this house.

2 weeks ago We got to see Melissa and Sam for a little bit.. It was nice to see familiar faces.. Even one that look that looks at the boys and says "Lets go find a snake" At first I didnt think she was serious but then I grabbed my camera just in time!!

Ok , so hopefully my posts wont be as long and not so far bewteen either! :)
