Happy Birthday Ryder

I just realized that I was tagged a few weeks ago, so I'll play along.

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

I was in college, living with Shasta. Those were some crazy days, and I won't go into any great detail. I was also pledge master and VP of CD's and preparing for my week of torture. Sara still brings that up from time to time.

2. What were you doing one year ago?

One year ago today, I was laying in a hospital bed waiting for the nurses to bring me my baby. He was born around 5:00 and I didn't get him back until 11:00 that night.

3. 5 snack you enjoy.

anything chocolate
flaming hot cheetos
wheat thins and spray cheese
ice cream
as you can see, I'm a very healthy eater.

4. 5 songs you know all the words to.

Anything from the old Church of Christ hymnal...especially 728b (i stole this from Larissa, but it totally cracked me up)
Ice Ice Baby
Baby's got back
any song from the Kenny Rogers greatest hits
anything from Garth Brooks, No Fences
anything from the George Strait box collection

5. 5 things you would do if you were a millionaire.

give to church
pay off all mine and my families debt
give to cystic fibrosis foundation
take all family and friends on a shopping spree in NYC at christmas time
Flip houses, make more money and invest it for the future

6. 5 bad habits
popping my knuckles
losing my temper over stupid things
spending money unwisely
being lazy

7. 5 things you like doing
playing with Ryder and Colt
laying on the couch with Colt
watching TV
dream about the future
drink morning coffee on my patio

8. 5 things you would never wear again
bangs that touch the top of my car
friendship bracelets
stirrup pants
pants that go up to my belly button
baby doll dresses

9. 5 favorite toys
cell phone
TV remote :)
Okay, so I tag Jennifer and Sara

Today was a big day, it was Ryder's 1st birthday. My inlaws came to my parents house and we had a big shindig. It was a lot of fun watching the kids swim and play together. It's so hard to believe that my baby is 1, but it's true. He has changed our life in countless ways and I can't wait to see the kind of man that he becomes. What a blessing he has been to us.

Well finally! In reference to your tag post- the other day I was in the car and I knew that I knew more songs than just church songs, but I couldn't think of any when I posted this. But I heard Kenny Rogers "The gambler" or whatever the name of it is, but I knew all the words and it made me think of us at Mema's when we were little.

And bangs touching the top of the car, that made me laugh really hard.

I cannot believe he is 1 already. Time goes by way to fast. Reading your blog made me think of the time when we were listening to a Dixie Chicks song and you thought the words were he is 2 inches 4 instead of he is 2 and she's 4. Cracked me up! Obviously I still think about that and laugh. Just had to share. =) - Amy Van
