The kids have had their start of the year projects at school. Unfortunately I wasn't home to help them but thankfully they have a pretty awesome Dad! Tans was a pretty straightforward fill in the blank one. It was the first thing about school Tanner has ever been excited about! I picked him up from school the day he got the project but left that afternoon so I couldn't help him with it. On the way home from school though he told me what he was putting in all the blanks. A snake for his favorite animal, half black and half red for his favorite color and Mi Mi's meatloaf and her lemon pie for his favorite food. Should I take offense that when I asked him what his favorite thing I make is, he said cereal, lol!! Guess I need to be extra thankful for my mom's home cooked meals!! I know Ryan really has been the past few weeks.

This post is really late. I've been really busy with my new job and obviously haven't blogged.
Nana and Paw Paw had their 51st wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. We all got together at this little restaurant to celebrate. No lie, this is our family and it's not even all of us. A few people couldn't be there. And when I say family I mean this is what I consider my "immediate" family. I LOVE this group of people!!!!

When I was in high school Mom and Dad bought me a really nice REALLY expensive bedroom set. When Ryan and I got married bedroom furniture was really low on the list of things we wanted to buy so we never did. Lately I have been really into the old shabby chic look. I've completely redid my living room in it and have now moved to my bedroom. Here is my dresser before...

It's been a while since I've blogged. I started a new job which so far I really like. It gives me a lot of flexibility and I work all over the place. Seriously all over. Ryan has been moved to weekends for 6 weeks. The good thing about that is he's home with the kids now during the week and works Friday, Saturday and Sunday. He's not all the happy about it since it means no fishing but at least it's only 6 weeks. The kids are doing great in school so far. Both of them haven't gone down any in the behavior chart all year! Both of their teachers say they are doing great and are really smart! Tan's teacher did say that he's a little lazy and get side tracked easily but nothing major.
I made a really cute cupcake tower for my cousin Chris's fiance, Celeste. She's so sweet and said she loved it! She had seen the one I made at Lindsey's baby shower.
Miss Priss started dance back and also went to cheer camp. The cool thing about cheer camp is that they get to cheer some at all the home football games for MGM. This is one of the cheerleaders actual uniforms and we had Dawn alter it to fit Ry. She looked SOOOOOOO cute and grown in it!! Go Vikes!!

She's here!!! She's here!!! She's here!!!
Friday, September 14th Miss Blakeley Rena Johnson was born. She weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces and was 21 inches long. She is absolutely beautiful and perfect!!!!!!!
Lindsey was induced on Friday and had her that afternoon. She had a great delivery. Unfortunately I was out of town for work and wasn't there. :( I literally started crying on the shuttle on the way to the airport when they texted me a picture and that she had arrived. Mom got Ry and Tan out early so they could be there for the big event! Ryleigh was beyond excited!!

Ryleigh Claire, we told you he would be bigger than you one day.
We told you that you shouldn't be so mean to him.
We told you that one day he was going to pay you back for all the times you beat him up.
We told you that one day he was going to get you back.
We told you that he may be younger but he's part giant and it wouldn't be long until he'd be taller and stronger.
We told you, you should be nicer to him.
We told you that payback isn't fun.
We told you over and over to not hold him down.
We spent the past 5 years telling you all of those things.
Just to have you not listen and all of them come true tonight.
He's officially stronger than you. He's on a mission to pay you back for 5 years of torture! :)
