April & May

We are now out of school! WHOO HOO! This is my first summer off in two (or three) years. I forget how many! I walked out of the doors on Tuesday with a skip in my step!

I just looked back at the blog and it appears I need to start in March! So Lets back up a little


March is St Patricks Month in Dublin! We had a lot of fun!

We had Dance Parent Day,

Lunch with Lucky.
Super Saturday
and the St Patricks Pageant! Ryleigh did excellent in the pageant! And although we are a little bias we do believe she should have placed!

Wow! These have been a few busy (and trying) months. April was a busy month. too!!

Ryleigh and JB enjoyed some time fishing! Ryleigh held the fish (s) even!!! We took her to the Duke's to fish, they caught SEVERAL!!!

We went to several easter egg hunts! One at Church, One at Kathleens and One at school!

Here we are Easter Morning before church!

Easter was a hard holiday for us, and we decided just to stay at home. We found out in March that we were expecting a baby! However, April 19, @ 8 weeks and 4 days I had a miscarriage. We had to put it in Gods hands as we will never understand the reason why.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding proverbs 3:5

This difficult time brought JB and I even closer together. Ryleigh will often say now her baby is in heaven with Jesus. We have awesome family and friends who helped us and prayed for us and brought us through it all! Everyday we get a little bit stronger!!!! And we are truely blessed! :)

April also is the vidalia onion festival!!!

This picture is of John Gavin and Ryleigh.


May was just as busy!

We had our dance recital pictures,

and Muffins with Mom

Then Ryleigh's end of the Year Program and Party!
Wow! This was an emotional day. Ryleigh is really growing up! This was the LAST program she will have at FBC First Learning Center. In August, she will start K4 at Trinity Christian School.

FLC has been such a blessing for us! Ryleigh has been loved and cared for by the best people we could ask for! She went Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Pa picked her up at lunch time. Her favorite thing to do at school was to sing the Friday song!!! She has learned so much. Her favorite friends from school were: Caroline Darcy & Jaden and Jacob.

Her favorite person at school (and maybe in the WORLD!!!) is Ms. Shellene. She has got Ryleigh out of the car the past two years, and this year she was her teacher! (along with Ms. Ryan).

Well School is out and summer has begun! Let's hit the pool!!!!!!

Well lets start with the end of January :)
Here is Ryleigh's Party at school. She didnt want to take cupcakes, she wanted Chicken Minis! :)

Ryleigh's Birthday Party at Bojos!
Here are some pics.... any one take a guess at what kind of party we had.... Justin Bieber but of course!

Here is a pic of Nana's Babies minus the Manning girls :)

A trip to American Girl to spend the night in the American Girl Everything Pink Suite is what Barbie decided we needed for our birthday. Ryleigh loved it.

Started with Dessert at the Bistro
Then Sarah had an appointment for a new Hair do!Then off to the hotel to check in! Ryleigh and Sarah had their own checkin location, they had their own AG credit cards and had to decide on a time to have their room service delivered that night. We also had breakfast buffet the next morning before our trip to the pool for a quick swim before heading back to DUblin, Sarah however slept during the pool time, she was exhausted and didn't think she needed to go swimming.

Room Service Milk and Cookies (PS THE COOKIES WERE TEACAKES... YUM!)

Matching Robes
We also had our Pee Wee club at church perform on Wednesday night. Ryleigh decided she needed to dance instead of just sing.

Dance at the Nursing Home

They danced at the nursing home, to an Elvis song. after dancing, she passed out Valentine's to the residents.

okay the videos are NOT UPLOADING! so go to phanfare to view those :)

My goal for this year is to update more! I know I know, why set a goal that is just about impossible.... well I can at least try!

Ryleigh started the year with a bang, she went and visited for a day at Trinity's k-4 (prek) program. She loved it and asked if she could go there now, on the days she was not going to FirstLearning Center... haha.

She has decided she wants a Justin Bieber Birthday party. She went to Cake Art and told them "exactly" what to put on the cake.
I quote..
"I Love Justin Bieber" and "Ryleigh's Fourth Birthday Bash" :)
(what can I say.... shes my child! lol.) She also told them she wanted a little Justin Bieber boy on top. Hopefully they will live up to her expectations.

We had two "Ice" Days so our first week back to school in Wilco was a short one, we get MLK day on Monday, I can get used to these short weeks. :)

While we were at BoJos signing up for her birthday party we stayed to play for a little while and Ryleigh decided she wanted to do Gymnastics as well as dance. So since she has been asking randomly to do this we took the leap and registered her. She now goes to Gymnastics on Wed and Dance on Thurs. I will have ot post the pic from my phone later.

Here is a video of her swinging on the rope at BoJos. She has NEVER done this before and had always been scared. This day she did it four times before we made her leave! UHHH VIDEO WONT UPLOAD I WILL TRY AGAIN TONIGHT. Regardless its on phanfare. go take a look!

Playing Catchup!

What a busy month. Practice practice practice! We are living, sleeping and eating nutcracker right now I think! :) Halee had her birthday party and she tried to find a place JUST LIKE BOJOs!!!!

The month of November also means its time to see Santa and the pink pig! This was the ffirst year that Ryleigh did SPEAK to Santa! He even reminded her she needed to be sleeping in HER bed and not at the foot of mine..... yea still not happening..... Ryleigh enjoyed the pink pig the most however! She loves Priscilla! After the trip to Lenox and Phipps we rode to the American Girl store and Sarah got her hair done!

The next weekend was Ryleigh's pageant. She happened to see a girl trying on a pageant dress at Garden Gate when we ran in for some shoes and she decided she was going to do that too. She did a fantastic job, and looked so grown up! If they (they being the Pageant gods) did not move a five year old down to the three year old group, Ryleigh would have recieved a trophy. Her group was also the only one that did not have a second place... umm

this girl in blue was the five year old who won!

JB and I also went on a crusie over thanksgiving! We left out of Jacksonville and went to Key West and Nassau! THe weather was sooooo perfect. We laid around and did just about nothing the entire trip... and that made it WONDERFUL!WHAT FUN… the weather was perfect.


She did great in her Christmas program at school. They sang a few songs and had a dessert party. Momma and Jeff came down and surprised her by coming to watch and eat dessert.

Just being Ryleigh!

Practice practice practice and more practice. But boy! What a show! The nutcracker was fantabulous! Ryleigh is already asking when we are going to start back….. I however, am not ready!
Ryleigh and I at the Sunday show, I was a back stage worker.
This is what everyone felt like by the time the Sunday show came around!
Our beautiful Cherub!

Where I found her, she did this by her self in the dressing room while she was waiting for her call. everyone was EXAUSTED!

We have the fastest little angel anywhere!
