First, let me say that taking photos of kids is a hard, thankless job. I totally understand. Niko has this fake smile that shows up when a camera is around, and here it is in all of its glory. This is the best photo of the lot.
This is both Neil and Mark's favorite photo. It looks like he is going to be punished if he doesn't smile.
I said SMILE or else!!!
And a nice collage of terrible photos.
Not to be out done, Ryker looks stoned.
Mark made a 'Wall of Misery" for us at home. Can't wait for next year's photos!
I don't think I like this hat.... getting angry....
ROAR!!!! You won't like me when I'm ANGRY!
Daddy got me to laugh...
This was Niko's home for the morning....
My ghouls. We went to the Blue Springs Trick-or-Treat Main Street over the weekend. It was pretty cold and Niko was very grumpy so I didn't take too many photos of him wearing my jacket and crying he was cold. After the bounce house and candy, he was in a much better mood.
I am considerably behind in my blog posts! The Apels came to visit two weekends ago. The weather was BEAUTIFUL so we decided to break out the fire pit and smores! It was a mini-KCAI visit as Monica and Mark joined us. We had a gaggle of kids with ours, the Apels and Monica's kids roasted marshmallows around the fire.
The kids moved inside and watched movies as we sat around the campfire and retold stories of days gone by!
Just a few short videos of Ryker walking around. He's all over the place now and has made the switch to walking as his primary mode of travel. (He still crawls but not nearly as much as he walks.) In fact, he can almost run now - much to Niko's dismay! Niko left an unattended donut bite on the couch last night and Ryker got a hold of it.... it was pretty funny.
Happy Anniversary! Wow! Seven years have flown by.... the top photo is our wedding invitation artwork and the photo below is a photo of us reenacting our artwork. Here's to 7 years, 2 kids, 2 houses, 4 cars, 3 jobs and countless adventures. Here's to many, many years to come!
Awww...... beautiful flowers from the hubby. Thanks babe!!!
