Just starting............




Well, since I'm a jump on the bandwagon kind of gal, and everyone else has a blog.... i thought, why not!:) Sure, I'm a little late- but better late then never, right?? This way- we can keep all the family and friends updated on the latest in the Ranger household! Yipeee- finally, you will be updated when things actually happen, vs. 5 years from now. I also, am the worst at taking pictures of my kids- and they are already half way adults, I'm hoping this will give me more motivation to carry a camera around, and capture more Kodak moments, since they happen at least 5 times a day. This will also be a good journal, for funny stories of my kids and what they are doing and have done, so that I have something to give them when they are older and to tell the grandchildren......starting now.

This past weekend we went up to Dallas with everyone for the blessing of Amy's sweet baby, Clementine Joy Breeden! She is such an adorable baby- and I'm ready for my next one!:) (just waiting on Chet) LOL! It was a great weekend. Brett also graduated from Law School and we are all hoping they move down here to Houston to be with the rest of the family. While on the trip, Dante lost his 2nd tooth and now his 2 bottom front teeth are missing. He loves it- blood and all. I have added a few pictures of the little ones. The first one is of Ethan and Erin, when Ethan thought it would be funny to pretend the powder donuts were his eyes, and I had to get a picture of the results:) The 2nd one is of Dante at the hotel this weekend, where a guy was wearing an afro wig, and let Dante try it on. Ethan - ran for his life, when the guy took the wig off! The 3rd picture is of all the kids this weekend at the blessing. The girls in the matching pink dresses are all of Brett's neices. Dante is still 6 and he is on the First Colony Piranhas swimteam and LOVES it!! This morning, I told him, he has swim team practice at 4, and he goes" Yesssssss!" all the while lifting his knee up and doing the arm motion that goes with it! He also will be graduating from Kindergarten this Thursday!! Can you believe it? I almost have a 1st grader? Where does time go?? Erin is still 4 and she is ready to start cheerleading! Thanks Emily:) Ethan is turning 3 this Sunday and is looking forward to his presents and cake! He is possibly the funniest kid in the world. Every day something new comes out of his mouth, and I'm like whaaaaat?, where did that come from?? My favorite story to tell about Ethan though, is how he has a thing for his nose. His finger is always in his nose, and he has stuck more things in his nose, then I can even count. One night, I gave him some chocolate chips for dessert, and he fell asleep quickly after. The next morning when he woke, up he comes running out and there is blood stained on his mouth running from his nose. As he gets closer, I realize it was chocolate, and that he had stuck chocolate chips up his nose, and they had melted, running down his face. The best though- was in church one Sunday, he is picking his nose and I'm just watching... and then he pulls out his finger with a little booger on it, and then rolls it into a ball, and I'm thinking- gross- please don't eat it, like most 2 year olds would do... and then- without missing a beat- he sticks it back up into his nose! I almost died laughing. Good times:)

Well, that is the 1st blog entry for the Ranger's and there will be sooo much more to come, so check back often!:) We love and miss you all and hope that life is being good to you!
