Here is a little video of Ryah Bear.  It's a little on the long-ish side (2 minutes, 7 seconds, to be exact), but I liked all of it so I'm posting all of it.

Ryah is now 20 months old.  Crazy!  She is seriously at the cutest little stage right now where she's starting to talk and be goofy and I just adore her right now.  Not that I don't always adore her...but...actually...I don't always adore her.  haha.  

Always love her?  Yes.  

Always adore her?  Hard to do when she's pouring her yogurt off the side of her high chair all over the kitchen floor and rubbing it in her hair.  Not so adorable.  :)

Anyway, here's just a little video of her waking up from her morning nap.  Apparently she was not in the mood to showcase her animal noises, but fortunately pointing to various body parts was on the Things Ryah Can Do Today List, so she shows that talent off quite nicely.  My favorite thing that she says right now is "be happy," which she picked up from the song Don't Worry, Be Happy, which I play around the house pretty much every day.  Again with the adorable.

So enjoy the little video of my Bearsy Girl--scraggly hair and pj's included.  And sweet, sweet disposition.  That happens to be included, as well.
Lucky me. :)

**By the way, this is my 200th post on this blog!  Holy cow, I've been doing this for a long time.

Taylen's Trick

Taylen does this every time I open the garage.  At first I freaked out.  Now I laugh.
And Ryah is so darn cute!  She is starting to talk and is at an age I absolutely adore.

I love my girls. :)

So I went to Utah this past weekend and had an amazing time.  It was really really really really (not to mention really) fun.  Here are just a few of the reasons it was so awesome:

Brooke got her wisdom teeth out.  Which meant her face was huge and puffy.  And she was on drugs.  And there's not much in the world that is more entertaining than Brooke on drugs.  For real.

I got to hang out with my stellar family:
(me and the madre)

Sister Shmae and cousin Jadie Cakes:

I went on a date for Valentine's Day and wore my cousin Samantha's jacket.  
She's 12. haha.

I got to see some of my best friends/old BYU roommies.  SO FUN.  
I miss these girls so darn much, and I love hanging out with them.  We always pick up right where we left off.  Chantelle announced some big news, and Paige fell off a pogo stick.  And within 20 minutes of their arrival my mom randomly said, "boobs."  I'm still not quite sure why, but it was pretty funny.

AND...I went snowboarding for the first time!  We went to Park City, and it was really ridiculously fun.  My body is definitely mad at me today, though.  And tomorrow's not going to be pretty, either...

All in all, it was really a great trip.  Yay for Utah. :)

Brooke Loves Me

I am up way too late looking through old pictures on my computer and I found these little gems:

Apparently this is what Brooke did in her spare time while living at my house.  My favorite is the dark hair one. Oh the eyebrows are amazing.
