New Camera!

Sorry the posts have been kinda lagging lately.... My camera broke! After much deliberation, reading reviews and returning two cameras to the store (I could be the world's worst decision maker), I finally get a new one and I LOVE it. It's the Canon Powershot SD870 IS and I am very pleased with it so far. Here's a few snapshots from the last couple of days...

Benson has gotten to where he LOVES playing in the yard in the afternoons...


Y.....m-c-a

I love this little boy to pieces!


Aunt Ash and Chris... she's pretty even with a mouth full of hamburger!

The Newest Ryan Grandbaby


Addison Grace Ryan (Addie Grace)
Born May 22, 2008 weighing 6lbs.1oz.



We went up to visit Addie on Sunday. She is so cute! She and Susie are doing well. Benson wouldn't sit still long enough to get a good picture with his new cousin. This is the best one we got!


Thomas and Susie with the new little one! (Hannah was asleep)

Hannah Banana, the big sister

The babies had a BLAST with the awesome bubble blower aunt Christa brought. It blew some humongous bubbles!

May is zooming by like Benson in a pack-n-play...

We've had a great May so far! Thanks to everyone who signed up for Revolution Money Exchange by clicking our button! We ended up making $150! Free Money! Woo Hoo!

Sorry the posts have been slow in coming lately... we've been busy around here!
Here's some snippets and snapshots from this month so far... (remember, you can always click on a picture to see it bigger...)

Benson has gotten his crawl down pat... he's like a little bolt of lightening shooting around the house...

Benson has learned how to do this really cool thing where he clicks his tongue really loud. We have no idea how he figured it out, but it's pretty funny to listen to him do it...

Benjamin comes up with the craziest stuff to do with Benson and Benson just LOVES it!! Yesterday we were grilling on the back porch, so Benjamin had Benson with him in his little pack-n-play. I was inside cooking and I looked out and couldn't see them, so I went outside to find them playing this new "game" that Benson thought was just the greatest thing ever...

We had everybody over for lunch to celebrate mothers day! Here are the four generations...

My first mothers day was great! Benjamin brought me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers! So sweet!

Benson and his great grannie!

We had a great time celebrating Hannah's first birthday...Here's the whole birthday party! Benjamin had to deliver flowers since it was the day before mothers day. He was missed!

Everybody helped open the presents!
