Ry-11 Caden -5 Bean-Belly

Caden loved staying at Vegas.
He liked the attention, the cowboys and the excitement. He wants to have his next birthday party there. That honestly scares me a little... a lot!  He kept asking if you could eat there, sleep there.
He never wanted to leave. a month later he still talks about it.
On the way to Vegas we made 5 stops. This was the third and the dinosaur park. We ate at the little cafe.  One the way home we cut it down to 3 stops. It was a good family trip with MY family. Usually we go with mikeys family to the beach. I'm hoping this can be our annual Wright trip.

The Kids

Jordan (pink shirt) we are so proud of him. Caden says that he will take peaches out there next time. I have a feeling if Caden has his way we will be watching my son out their one day. Tuff Hedeman was roping there, too.

Caden got new boots and Chaps. He wears these as often as I will allow it. We had two to three different people ask to take his picture. He is so stinkin cute!

I love this pic... Mikey got his first real cowboy hat.  Now he looks like Caden.

Rylan loved her new cowboy hat because it has a zebra trim. Mikey indulged her and allowed her to have and early Christmas present. I think its super cute, so is she.

pirate for one long day- poor Rylan

My silly Rylan wakes up at 2:30 in the night to say that her eye hurts. This was just after we put Caden to bed after having an asthma attack and breathing. Like the great parents we are we tell Rylan to go to bed and reassure her that she'll be fine.  the next day was a Friday. I kept my phone on all day because i thought Caden may have breathing problems and wanted his school to be able to call me.  Well Rylan's school calls. She is still saying her eye hurts.  I tell her to go to the bathroom and wash it off, to get a paper towel on it.  She calls back.  So I leave work and pick her up. Her eye was red.  I take her to home and wash all her bedding (thinking its pink eye) we go to urgent care.  It turns out that she scraped her cornea, and needed to wear an eye patch.  She was excited to have that! 

Until reality set in eye patches are very annoying.  She wore it until the next morning and was so irritated.  She did tell her dad that she thought an ice cream would make her feel better.
Like great parents we didn't make it.

missing you

My grandpa Wright is missed everyday.  I would live to be over at their house and take my kids to allow them to play in the front yard while he watches from his chair.  He could watch Caden and Rylan run, chase, fight, ride, and talk from the big window in the living room.  I could watch him watching my kids. I wish I could have that chance.  I wish he could have had the chance to see how his family stayed together and play with each other still.  We are all over 20...even 30 and love to sit in the same room and talk and joke with each other. I want my grandpa to be there to watch and listen.

Cristal and I at the North High school graduation party. I miss this girl everyday to. We talk on facebook and see each other occasionally... but not enough. 
I miss my grandma Peters and her soup that always made us feel better, I miss grandma Joan and her fierce fight for her family and loved ones. She had the biggest heart and wrath if you should dare cross her babies.  She met Rylan. She always gave her a cookie from the jar...sometimes a whole box.  I miss talking to her about secrets and i know she'd be proud of dad and his God centered life.

Everyday Life

This is one of the SWEETEST pictures I have of my kids. This is a unplanned and unpredictable moment of two kids showing that they love each other.  They are reading a book. I think Caden is reading to Yaya. I know its his book.

Caden likes to have accessories, He got into my birthday present from the inlaws.  And... yes he sooooo pretty.

Caden is my kitchen helper. He very diligently placed pieces of cheese onto the ricotta pasta.
He enjoys being big and helping.

Look really close, I see a finger... It's Caden!


Some of the things I am thankful for:
     coffee in the morning
     living next to Cheree
     online shopping
     my camera
     Rylan letting Caden use her Ipod each morning on the way to school
     Mom and Beryl taking and picking up Ry from school
     kids' school teachers...Mrs. Tiner, Carmen, Cassandra
     My dad and his new attention to church
     Tasha for taking care of my dad
Caden says:
Im thankful for my boots, belt, hat.
Rylan says:
Im thankful for my family,and the friends I have,and the two most important people that is always in my heart


Thanksgiving (day after)

The day after Thanksgiving is a family play day for the Wrights in-laws and out-laws.  We do competitions and ride horses, talk, rope, etc. The kids really look forward to it.  As do the adults. Mikey took the day off, and I gave him his horse early in order to have it for the event... BUT it was cancelled.  So those who could go went out. It was a good day...riding, talking, and fighting. GOOD TIMES.
Rylan and Caden
Caden has such a great natural smile, but Rylan is using a forced smile. Its so hard to get a natural smile out of her.

Getting ready to brush Peaches

Mikey and his first own horse April.

I am riding down Peaches for the kids. Each time I get on Peaches I feel the need to apologize. I say, " I'm sorry Peaches I will only be on you for a minute. BUT, I did about get bucked off a few times. So I'm glad I rode first.

Caden and Jordan
Caden thinks Jordan his so interesting. He thinks its funny when Jordan rides his horse with no shirt, or "naked" as Caden puts it.  Caden like to ride with him and loves watching all my cousins riding,roping, talking.  He loves to be at Uncles Toms arena or PaPats house. Caden talks about Peaches, horses, and riding all the time. 

That is a beautiful smile Ms. Rylan! They both like to wear the vests, and hats, and boots. But Caden is a cowboy through and through.

She loves animals and horses. She likes to be with the girls Lacey, Chelsea, and myself.  On a ride out she met us near the end was able to ride Peaches the rest of the way home. Rylan saw her Nana's horse jump at a shadow and was afraid. So Tyler led her the rest of the way, while carrying Caden in the saddle. Caden rode out with Jordan initially, Jordan walked the whole way out.  Jordan didn't walk fast enough. Caden wanted to be up with Chelsea and Lacey. He likes pretty girls.
