After lunch we headed over to Alley Cats for bowling and games. She had so much fun, she said at one point, "THIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!"
Here's everyone, we had a great time! Josh even won a Nintendo DS in one of the machines!! Happy birthday Ryleigh! She will be excited when she opens it, her cousin Emma has one and she is always wanting to play it, now she'll have her own!
Now I have the week to get the house ready for her birthday party here. I have no idea how many kids will be here....yikes!

Ryleigh is totally fearless when it comes to rides so we have been taking advantage of our season passes. She would like to go on more rides but she's not tall enough yet. I have a feeling she will be next year. She went on the pirate ship with Josh and with Runaway Mine Train with me. It was also nice to not have Carter with us, he stayed with Gigi for a few hours. We'll probably go once more for Holiday in the Park, where it's decorated for Christmas.
Hangin with Daddy
First and last bath in the sink.
Carter LOVES his sister, she makes him smile and laugh all of the time.
Last week I had to take Carter in to the doctor. He got a bad cough and was running a fever but the Dr. couldn't find anything so he tested him for the dreaded H1N1 flu. Thankfully it was negative but he probably did have some sort of virus. (He weighed 18 lbs 12oz.) The fever only lasted a day but his poor little nose is still yucky and he's still coughing which is keeping him up which is keeping me up. We are now back to not sleeping through the night....I dream of the days when I can get a full nights sleep again. Literally. Carter is just not a great sleeper. Extremely hard to get to sleep and we're lucky if we get 45 minutes out of him. Other than that, he's perfect!
Now on to his sister. She currently has ZERO toys in her room and it's been that way for almost 3 weeks. Poor girl just has a temper and wants to control everything. Little miss queenie bo beenie thinks that what she says is what goes.....needless to say, she's having a rough time right now, but I think she's s l o w l y "getting it". She is VERY excited about turning 5, I on the other hand, am not ready for it. I don't know what it is about the number 5 but it makes me feel old.
Next week Josh and I will celebrate 7 years together. The place we are at now is so good, I am excited about each day with him and our family.
