Christmas 2010

Yes I am Still playing catch up.  I'm only 3 months late posting this. :)
 Merry Christmas!  Santa let Ryan borrow his Santa suite on Christmas Eve night.  He went and visited the Barkers house and the Millers.  He did change his shoes though, those white ones don't really go with the suite. 
 Ho Ho Ho Baby!
(yes I am aware I look creepy in this picture, but it's the only picture I had on Santa's lap)
 The nativity at the Harpers.  The always do an amazing job. I love the 2 angels in the back. 
Ryan and Paul are so cute with Molly in the picture.  Next years Christmas card, I think so. Enough said.
 My sisters and sister in laws.  I don't know why my mom isn't in the pic, she must have been doing something.  Me, Jami, Lisa, Rachel and Melissa. 
Santa CAME!!! Christmas morning.  We don't splurge on a big tree yet, we don't have space to store it.  I love the stockings.  Molly had a bone in her stocking and she wouldn't part with that thing all morning long. 

 Ryan surprised me and got me a pink .22! I'm actually really excited for it!! It was a good year. 
 Ryan before we went to my parents house.  He was a little dissapointed b/c he really wanted a Ruger .22 but I told him I didn't know which one to get him. 
 SIIIKE! I totally fooled him.  He has been dying for a gun for the past 5 months so I decided to play a trick on him this year. I wrapped the gun and took it over to my parents house. So on Christmas morning we opened all of our presents to each other at our house and he was severely disappointed that he didn't get the gun. I told him that I didn't know what gun to get and we would go later to pick out one together. It took all I had not to tell him he was getting it later that day. A few hours later when we were all done opening presents at my parents house, I finally got the gun out for him. He was so stoked and surprised. It was Christmas miracle. Ha! Now that I think more about it, it was a little mean of me to make him wait so long. Oh well... BOO YA I GOT HIM SO GOOD!!!
 I'm so sneeky!! 

 At the Gardners that night Ryan was part of the Talent show.  He was featured in the song Santa Baby, sung by Meghann and Grace.  It was really cute.
 The Gardner Nativity.  It's so fun to see them all dress up for it. 
It was a great Christmas.  I had so much fun. The day went by to fast.  I can't wait for next year, I love the Christmas season.

I'm so lucky!

Ryan surprised me and brought me home flowers.  I love when he does this, what girl wouldn't.  I asked him to take the picture from my waist up and this is what I got. 
 Finally he pulled his head out and took it the right way.  They smelt so good and lasted forever.  Thanks babe!  You're the best husband ever!!!

The first bouquet of flowers Ryan ever brought me.

Green Dragon

We took the green dragon (Ryan's sandrail) up to 4 peaks one weekend.  I don't know how much Molly enjoyed the trip, she clung on to me the whole ride.  I had to protect her from all the flying rocks.  It was fun though, I'm glad we took her.  Ryan almost took us over few cliffs, at least I thought so.  I was scared for my life, but Ryan was laughing.  But it was a great time, I love going out on it.  
I've driven it only once.  I have to sit on the edge of the seat to reach the pedals.  So when I pushed the clutch in and would tell Ryan when to shift.  Since I have to sit so low, I had to look through the steering wheel to see.  The first time I drove it the breaks went out so we had to coast to a stop.
 It was a great time. Hollar!

Happy 24th birthday

Nope it's not Christmas, it's Ryan's 24th birthday.  I could only find Christmas wrapping paper to wrap his presents.  I tried to throw him a surprise birthday party this year, but of course he figured it out.  We meet up with his friends at Yard House, one of Ryan's favorite resturants.  I didn't take my camera in with me, so I don't have any pictures.  He had a great birthday!!!
p.s. yes his face is on his shirt. 
 I got him a pie b/c he loves them more than cake.  I found this really awesome pie place by my house.  It's on Power and Brown and it's called Croshaws Gourmet Pies.  They are so good.  I got Ryan a banana creme and I tried a mini coconut cream.  LOVE!

Standin on a Corner

We went to Winslow with our good friends Shauna and JD Barker.  Shauna is from there so we got to see all the highlights.  It was a fun weekend filled with adventures.
The train goes over that bridge.  It was rebuilt and was so awesome to look at.  

Ryan and JD
Shauna's dad Robyn took us around and told us about the indians that used to live there long ago.  It was sweet listening to all the stories.  He took us to a cave where some indians were burned b/c they stole another tribes daughters.  It was so cool down there.  (i hope I'm remembering the story right)

Standin on the Corner. 
Wanna go for a ride?? I was a little nervous but how could I not trust a face like that??
I just realized I didn't get any pictures of Shauna.  Thanks for the great weekend.  We would totally go back again to visit.
