Our Dainty Little Princess

Working in the house and came out to find this.

She may not be the cleanest, but at least she has tons of personality!

Ryan really is the crowning jewel on our family.  It is such a joy to have our princess.

Disney On Ice

Disney on Ice Toy Story 3 was a smashing hit for the Boone kids!
It was so fun to watch the 3 oldest completely transfixed by the show. It really held their attention.

Lots of ice skating in the hallways at Selland Arena... Wyatt lands a triple lutz!
Even Lincoln loved it.

In true they-liked-the-box-better-than-the-toy (pun intended) fashion, the biggest hit of the evening was repurposing the ice from the Zamboni in the parking lot. Snowball fight!

Grandma's Tahoe Photo Shoot

For as long as I can remember, Grandma has dreamed of having a photoshoot of all her granddaughters in white dresses running through the woods with crowns on their heads. We got pretty close in Tahoe this summer.

Cousin Sydney blowing bubbls. Wyatt chasing Ian. Tanner holding Lincoln. The girl cousins are so beautiful!

And the boys in their retro white T-shirts aren't too shabby. Ryan was in heaven!

Props and thanks to Aunt Kathryn for another amazing job on the photography!

Getting a Handle on Daddy...

Friday nights often consist of walks and dancing at Lake Sumter Landing.
And puppies! Everywhere, puppies. Wyatt especially loves this.
Ryan has dicovered she needs no stroller for this event.
Daddy's more fun. And he has built in handles, like the passenger seat of a car!

(Check out his weird looking ears in the bottom pic.)
Other than ocassionally encountering a territorial, gerriatric line dance group
(true story) we always have a great fun.

Random Family Stuff...

After dropping Atticus off to school I was walking through the garage and saw this:It made me think of some other fun pictures from the past few weeks.

Yippee...Ryan is finally almost 15 pounds!
(As verified by our favorite Winn Dixie greengrocer, Gene.)

I found this random shot on my camera. I thought Atticus did a pretty great job of capturing our obsessions simultaneously: Atticus's transformers, my keyboard, and Wyatt's 2 favorite books.

A few Saturdays ago Atticus did some accessorizing. He used boxers, briefs, AND boxer-briefs...So diplomatic.

Safety first for Ryan at Lowe's.

I'll take naked-vacuumer over naked-napper any day.

Family Olympics, Summer 2008

All eyes were on Florida last night as "Family Olympics, 2008 - Wildwood" kicked off at Boone stadium. The opening events were simply the beginning of a 2-week celebration of culture and competition some call...the Summer Olympics.

The players: Atticus Jonah, Gabriel Wyatt, Ryan Sierra

The Officials: Daddy and Mommy

Atticus rocked the standing long jump with a whopping 52".
But it was Ryan who took the gold when height to jump ratio was considered.
Turns out white girls CAN jump!

Some groupies joined up part way through.
Reagan MacKenzie and Samantha Lee were tremendous assets to Team Boone.

The sprint was the favorite event of all five athletes.
The girls especially loved that the finish tape was hot pink.
NBC news crew scheduled to record the games were held up with flat tires.
Luckily we had out little digital camera.
(It reminds Paris of the old silent movies.)

The pole climbing event was harrowing.

And, of course, tree swinging.

Wyatt got perfect 10's.

The invasion of two monkeys into Olympic Stadium was something all in attendance are sure to remember for the rest of their lives.

We can only hope the Olympians in China have as good a time as we did.

The First Supper...

After showing absolutely NO interest in baby cereals we finally got Ryan's attention with butternut squash. We think the part where she sucks her thumb is particularly cute.
Everywhere we go people comment on how cute her thumb-sucking is.
Between that and those baby blues she steals the show!
