Holy Halloween


It feels like Halloween has been going on FOREVER and now it's finally over and we are SAD, Rylee cried as we took her out of her Halloween costume, and Brady almost made it around the whole neighborhood.

This is a process of how our October has gone. Pumpkin patches, pumpkin carving and the getting ready process. . .when you are a princess it takes a long time!!

This was a bad way to start the Halloween week. Rylee and I showed up to gymnastics and EVERYBODY had their Halloween costumes on but Rylee. I felt like the worst mom EVER. We had missed the week before so we didn't know it was dress up day and she kept asking me where her princess dress was?!? WORST MOM EVER!!!

Mr. Brady was happy and ready for HalloweenCarving pumpkins in the back yard with the fam. Rylee would not stick her hand in the pumpkin to get out the seeds. She wanted to use her spoon only and it would only get one seed at a time. It was a lengthy process! More pumpkin carving at Yaya and JJ's house. Rylee was more into eating the brownie batter than carving her pumpkin

Trick or Treat

Rylee wanted to be a princess and it had to be a PINK
princess and I couldn't find a good pink princess dress so I enlisted the help of a neighbor who volunteered to make one for us. We went and found the pattern and fabric and voila it was perfect!!! We then had to find the tiara, earrings, necklace, glass slippers, and most of all the princess hair. Rylee was so excited. . .This is the process. . .

Rylee and all of her accouterments!!

She sat so still and patient as we put in her princess hair (my old extensions) funny how they match perfectly!!

She is starting to look the part. . . Hair . . . Check . . . .Tiara. . . . Check. . . . Hair Spray. . . Check
Please don't sign me up for the pagent circut!!

Finally the process was complete and it was off to Trick or Treat!!

Princess Rylee was ready to hit the sidewalks in search of CANDY!! Little Superman didn't have much of a process, threw on a onesie and he was done!

I love my Superman

Thanks so much Yaya, JJ, Scott and D who came down to help. It was so much fun!

Hlinka family Halloween . . .

Mr. Brady didn't make it the whole way. . .
This was such a fun Halloween. Everyone was soooo into it and Rylee really had a great time. She knocked on every door in the neighborhood said Trick or Treat got her candy and left with a Thank You. And as soon as we left one house it was "more candy" and on to the next house we went!! She was so cute and the prettiest princess I've ever seen. She is getting so big I can't believe it. Next year Brady will be walking and it will be that much more fun. I love the holiday's and everything about them. Rylee is a true girly girl she just loved being a princess and the whole process that comes along with it . . . I see trouble in our future.

San Luis Obispo

Last weekend we took a road trip up to San Luis Obispo for my cousins wedding. I packed the car like we were going on cross country road trip for a month, this was the first time I had to pack for 3 people and come to find out later I should have packed for Chris too. . .He forgot his shirt, cuff links, sweater and belt for the wedding!! I have always said I have 3 blue eyed kids :)We met up with some family for dinner at the famous McLintocks, went down memory lane with my dad (he is an alumni from Cal State San Luis), tasted some wine at a couple wineries and went to a fabulous wedding. . . The pictures pretty much sum up the weekend. . .Edna Valley Winery with Rick and Kathy Chris and Brady outside Tolosa Winery, where my dad and Rick became Tolosa wine club members. . . Surprise surprise!!
Bryn and Ricky enjoying their favorite Pino Noir

Yaya and Kitty waiting outside with the kids as they both fell asleep right as we pulled up to the first winery

Chris and JJ showing you how they drink their wine

The beautiful countryside had acre upon acre of vineyards we couldn't resist the photo op!

The fam at Talia's wedding, it was a beautiful location
Rylee and Brady were so cute at the wedding. Brady looked like a little man in his vest and collared shirt.. . . .(Look Mimi he has socks on!!) Rylee had the best time.
Bryn and Scott posing for the prom picture. They looked so cute in their matching blues!!

Rick and Dad in their best pose

Sisters, sisters
Everyone had their own pose, especially Rylee The BOYS!!!

Chris and Rylee were of course dancing on the stage. This was also the ceremony site with that picturesque backdrop.

JJ and Rylee
Rylee was getting a little tired. But don't worry she got a second wind and was dancing up a storm at the reception. She was the first one out there and I finally had to pull her off the dance floor because the rest of her family was ready to go. She had the best time at the wedding, she played with all the kids and made new friends
Mr. Brady finally crashed from all the partying
We all had a wonderful weekend. The kids did pretty good on the road and really good during the day considering they napped in the car and anywhere else they could. We stopped in SB to see Chris' family on the way up and for lunch both ways. 5 hours in the car was interesting. You can't do a trip like that with out LOTS of help thank God we have lots of it. Bryn, Scott, Yaya, and Jj are such a big help we couldn't have gotten along as well as we did with out you. We got to see lots of friends and family, and had a spectacular time!! Brady's first road trip was a success!!!!!

Brady's 3 month photo shoot!!
Sprout Photography is amazing. Brady wasn't very excited to have his picture taken, therefore the smiles were lacking. But Marla captured some fantastic shots. He is growing up so fast it's so much fun to watch him learn new tricks all the time. He rolled over for the first time and is smiling and laughing (right after the photo shoot of course)

We love Mr. Brady!!! Thanks Marla you do beautiful work!!

Disneyland with D and Scott!!!
Rylee was so excited to go to Disneyland with her Aunt B and Scott. She was dying to see Tinker Bell, Mickey Mouse and the Halloweened themed park! I think that Bryn and Scott were equally excited to go.
The first thing Rylee had to do when she got to Disneyland was to get princess Mickey ears!!

Soo half way through their Disneyland experience Bryn called me and thought I had sabotaged her!! I had put Rylee in "new" pink tennis shoes, not thinking that she would be walking around Disneyland, she would be pushed around in her stroller. Boy was I wrong :( Rylee had HUGE blisters on the back of her heels and would not put her shoes back on. Uh Oh! So Bryn asked me what size shoes does Rylee wear so we can buy her new ones so that we can stay at Disneyland. I told her she wears a size 7 the only size they had were 1o I said buy them if they will work!! This is the picture I received after the phone call with the caption . . .

"We are now officially tourist"

I love the socks and crocks look!! Best Aunt Ever!!!!

At the end of the day Rylee had Disneyland Burnout!! I would say she had a great day (minus the blisters) and Bryn and Scott have had their 2 year old fill!!!
Bryn and Scott are so amazing they love Rylee so much and have such a fun time with her. Scott is so cute with Rylee I can't wait for the future when Rylee and Brady have cousins. What fun times are ahead of us. Thank you so much for giving Rylee a great time and great memories!!
Bryn is the Best Aunt EVER!!!!

Happy 2 1/2 Birthday to my big girl!!
She was a little out of sorts for her 2 1/2 birthday gala but once she saw that there was cake and presents her outlook changed a bit!! She got her 1/2 cake, princess present from Yaya, JJ, and Aunt B, Tinker Bell movie from the Mama and Dada, and pasta dinner. She was a happy girl :)

She thought it would be fun to eat her cake with her fingers instead of a fork, I guess on your 1/2 birthday that is allowed!!
