I had their adorable cake made by a lady at our church. I thought she did a GREAT job!
It was a strawberry cake on the inside....delicious!!
Cute little topper that we saved and put in the girl's room.
More of the table. I bought that Strawberry Shortcake House at a garage sale for $4 when I was pregnant with Haylee 2 years ago. One of their favorite toys!
Happy Birthday dear Haylee and Katelynn
Pretty little 2 year old

Ryan is still pursuing employment. His long term plan is to start the Fire Academy in Jan and do a summer EMT course. This would allow him to be able to apply/test for almost any city in DFW area giving him so many opportunities. We understand that it is going to be a tough year or so but our goal of getting out of construction and having something that is stable is our focus. He has a heart of helping people and this would allow him to do that.
On to a few wedding pictures in lieu of our Anniversary
One of my favorite verses that I love for Ryan.....
As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man. Proverbs 27:19

He was really excited to go...can't you tell by the look on his face. He did great and I didn't cry til I got back in the truck.
Here he is at meet the teacher. This is his chair where he sits at. See his name on the table. Cute boy!
These picture's are kinda backwards. We took Tyler to his very 1st Ranger game the week before school started. He had a blast! He ate a hot dog and some of our cheese fries and ended off with some cotton candy. It was a great 1st game with 3 home runs and the Ranger's won!
Tyler also had a few cavities and had to get fillings the week before school. I fear that he is going to have my genes when it comes to teeth. I am religious about going for my cleanings every 6 months but just have had a rough time since all my pregnancies. Tyler did great the whole time. After his numbness went away we took him to get some ice cream. He came down with a HUGE headache and although this yummy ice cream looks very enjoyable, he was miserable. Poor baby....1 dose of Motrin and in 1 hour he was running around.

An evening playing in the sprinklers in the front yard...love how Kate's hair gets curly when it's wet!
Haylee soaking wet in her outfit. It was totally not planned to let them play in the sprinklers so no swim suits are on.
Tyler and Katelynn....the only 2 that I can keep in one spot to snap a picture! ;o) Haylee is too busy to sit down for a picture these days.
Sweet little Katelynn
This is when Katelynn was sick (about a month ago or so)only I didn't know it. I thought is was just allergies or a cold or something. No fever and not really too fussy just allot of snot and congestion and coughing/wheezing. I finally took her to the doctor after 3 days of it and she tested positive for Flu A!! Whaa? I was shocked! HELLO, it's summer and we don't go anywhere! I just don't understand why she always gets these viruses. I can't complain too much....God has blessed her with about 2 months of being completely well.
Here's a picure of her at her doctors office before we found out about the Flu. On this visit I was told that she is going to be considered as a "asthma patient" because of her tnedency to ALWAYS have wheezing any time she gets a cold or any respiratory virus. So we were sent home with a long term asthma inhaler called Advair, a rescue inhaler called Proventil, singulair for allergies and cough and a 5 day course of oral steroids. We are also supposed to add Zyrtec on top of this. So much for me to absorb with all of the medicines and inhalers and just knowing that my daughter is diagnosed with true asthma. She will be on the inhaler every day for probably several years until they decide to wheen her off of it. The rescue inhaler is to be used during times where she gets a cold or is having respiratory problems. The Advair is more for preventative asthma and we are hoping we can get it all under control before this winter rolls around in hopes that she won't have another winter like she did last winter. She's a trooper!!
Haylee sliding down her slide. This was given to us by our next door neighbor. Their kids were too big for it and tried to sell it in the garage sale. It didn't sell so she just gave it to us. Haylee and Katelynn LOVE it along with their also FREE play house.
Tyler got to attend this years VBS at our church if I voluntered as a worker. Next year he will be old enought to go without me voluntereing. He had a blast and I was so busy I didn't get to snap hardly any pictures. Here is a picture of him during the worship time!
The theme this year was Crocodile Dock and the key passage was to "Fear Not". So they bring out a REAL crocodile for everyong to see.....Nice!
Here is Ryan (minus 85 lbs) now on his Birthday!!! That's right 7 months and he lost 85 lbs. He is looking great and feeling great.
Love that facial expression!
Here is the typical "Jared" picture. He is holding up his work jeans we had just bought 3 pairs of at Christmas....Urgh! You will have to excuse his wife beater shirt and yes he has on some gym shorts behind those jeans! :o) Way to go Ryan!!!! I am so happy for you. Love you babe!
