What We're Up To

We haven't really been up to much, but we've been up to a whole lot.... ever feel like that? We've been busy with life... grocery shopping, changing diapers, playing with Ryder, work, being pregnant (who know that was so exhausting)... ya know... the stuff no one really cares for you to put in writing or blog about. We very rarely get that "down time" in life when we settle into a routine, nothing is going on but normal life, and honestly, we both agree it's super boring! As much as we complain about moving for baseball, rehab, the constant unknown.... the basic every day life of knowing nothing is going to happen but work, cooking dinner, and a little tv is b-o-r-i-n-g! Luckily in four weeks from today we leave for Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving!!! WooHoo... tickets are booked, and we couldn't be more excited. We are so excited to see family that we haven't seen in a year.

We are pretty much doing what we did last year as far as travel. We'll be in Pennsylvania for ten days. Derrik will then fly back to Arizona for a couple weeks of rehab before Christmas break starts (he will then meet up with us), and Ryder and I will head on to my parents house for about a month. It doesn't make sense to fly back in between for Ryder and I because it's just more money on plane tickets. Of course we will miss Derrik, as always, but unfortunatley with our life style a couple weeks apart has gotten bareable since we've had to do it so much. We just push through each day, start a countdown, and get super excited when we are together again!


For right now though we'll just stay busy with our routine. Derrik has been ridiculously busy with football officiating. It is such a blessing that his schedule is so busy due to the extra cash and experience Derrik gets. He insists he'll be officiating NFL games one day. He is gone about 4-5 nights a week with it, and we miss him!!! I picked up a side job nannying for a family. Minus one weekend a month that I babysit a couple hours for them, I pretty much just drive their daughter from school to her after school activities. It's worked out great for us and the family I think. It's nice extra cash, and doesn't mess up our schedule with Ryder all too much.

I have nothing else to say to separate the rest of these pictures.... so just enjoy the rest :)

Ryder thought Grammy sent him a present when she sent my maternity clothes.
He loved this box!!!
