Craig said I should put a better picture of Nikki on the Blog. In the other picture she is the one holding the camera. People always look funny when they take pictures of themselves. This one is much better.

Riley's 1st BIRTHDAY!!!

Riley and his best friend Adam celebrated his first birthday was on August 23rd. It's hard to believe this lil spud is already 1. Our friends Desiree, Rob & Lindsay Coleman, Travis & Tasha Poulson, and Cameron & Mana Riedel came to party with us too. Riley has been the greatest blessing in our lives. He is bursting with personality. Mana says his obsession with holding Nina's hair while nursing will lead him to a long-haired bride. He loves little people - he's always "chatting" with other children his age and crawls out of his way to befriend them. Nina complains about Riley's habit of ramming his head into her leg over and over again while making "Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh" noises as she's trying to make dinner. I think he'll probably be a trumpet player like Uncle Todd b/c he's always taking anything funnel-like and making noises through them. If there's one thing this birthday boy likes the most (besides his way-hip parents) it's music! He loves to dance like a disco star like right out of the Jackson Five.

Because we can, and b/c Riley doesn't know what you can really buy with money, we took full advantage of the opportunity - and went cheap. .75 cents bought a little drum from the local D.I. and he fell in love with it immediately.

Wild and Wonderful West Virginia

The black spots on Riley's face are bugs. I forgot how bad the bugs are in WV.

Nikki, Amber and Riley

Riley liked to try and catch the water as it came out of the faucet.

Riley and I are in West Virginia for a whole month visiting my family. My sister Amber is getting married this month on the 20th which is the main reason I came home. It is nice to be home. I haven't been home for more then a week since Craig and I got married. I got to meet one niece and I get to watch Julian's (little bro.) flag football game. I even get to spend my birthday with my family. I am glad to be home but I do miss my hubby!!! I can't wait to see him again.
