Snow day!

Well Oregon has kept up with the string of oddball weather. It's been snowing off and on for a few days. The kids had a blast playing outside! Ty liked it enough but Ruby loved it!!! Fun times!

There's an app for that...

I must apologize. I am a horrible blogger. Luckily for all of us I recently found out that there's an app for that. One of my new year's goals was to update my blog at least once a month. So here it goes...

Welcome 2012!!!

Ruby is 18 months old!

Ruby absolutely loves art. Markers, paint, crayons, playdough... if it's artsy she loves it.
She loves animals, babies, purses, and shoes... seriously such a girl!
Ruby likes to get us ready to go. Here she is dragging her coat around. Its actually funny how pushy she is when it's time to go bye-bye.
This Lady loves to play with the big kids, and she can totally keep up!
Honestly I am amazed by this Sassy lady everyday. I am not sure where she came from or how we ever lived without her. She is too smart for us and knows it! Ruby can say a few words, knows a few signs, and knows all of her important body parts.

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! I got an e-mail from blogger saying that it had been too long since my last post... so here we are.
The 2010 Veal Family newsletter.
Ruby turned 1 in September, she is quite the little pixie! Ruby was another early walker and loves to climb as high as she can get... Ruby loves to play with purses and almost always has one around her neck. She is very fashion forward and knows EXACTLY what she wants to wear and what she doesn't. We are still waiting for her hair to come in... We love our little Ruby so much, she has such a sweet spirit and is such an amiable lady. My nickname for her says everything about her, she is truly my "sassy lady"
Ty turned 3 in May. He is such a character, which any of you who follow me on facebook can attest to! The things that come out of his mouth truly astonish me everyday. Ty is such a boy, he loves anything "superhero". His favorite thing to do is play dress-up, and got quite a few "man" costumes for Christmas. I love this little man more than I can even say. He brightens my life everyday...
Aaron turned 33 in September. He is still working at FedEx, celebrated 10 years in July. He is taken a well deserved break from school right now. His big project was building a chicken coop. Aaron and I designed and built it together. It took about 2 weeks (because neither of us are terribly handy) and we now have 3 chickens in our backyard. I am so very thankful for this man. we celebrated 7 years of marriage in October. The time has truly flown, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Aaron is such a great father and both kids love him so much.
I turned 27 in August. I am back in school, taking online classes when I can. I think I have finally decided on a career path, but we will see how it works out. I re-injured my eye and I am desperately trying to avoid a procedure called "corneal scraping", yes it is as painful as it sounds. In March I decided to switch Ruby to cloth diapers and am LOVING it!
All in all 2010 was a good year for us. We went to the beach a few times and went to La Grande to visit family, Aaron and I even got away by ourselves for our anniversary. I am looking forward to the future and can't wait to see what 2011 brings. I hope the new year is good to all of you as well.

Fun Photos...

This photo is of Ty bunjee jumping at a birthday party 2 weeks ago, he went higher than all of the other kids, he was also the youngest! We also took a new family photo in the foam pit. That thing is like quicksand, it was so hard to get out of that pit! And the last photo? Well that one just cracks me up!


Seriously, how can you not smile when you see this face?!? Ruby is such a breath of fresh air in our home! She just turned 1 and that makes me so sad :(

Ruby started walking about a month ago and is having so much fun being a "big lady" This girl is ALL GIRL! She loves babies and animals and says "oh" when she sees something cute. She knows how to use a phone appropriately and loves accessories.

She is adventurous, to a point. Ruby is very much a momma's girl and likes people more from my arms than from the floor, on her own.

She has this way of smiling so big that you can feel her soul reaching out that makes everyone love her.


I feel AWFUL!!! I have not updated this blog in WAY TOO LONG! Not that I have anything important to say but still... This little boy is truly a joy in our family. Watching the world through his eyes is a magical experience. The way that his thoughts come out of his mouth is HILARIOUS!

His favorite color is still orange and he loves to let everyone know that.

He is such a CRACK UP! I love his silly faces and "jokes"

Ty took swimming lessons this summer and he was AWESOME... of course. Swimming really helped Ty to come out of his shell, he is so much more adventurous now!

I love this little man so much.
