Rayle is 3

Yesterday June 17th Mr. Rayle turned 3 years old. Where has the time gone?? I was thinking man I have a 5 and 3 yr old. It seems crazy! Rayle has been so excited about his birthday. He doe not quite get time yet but understood that yesterday was his special day. Rayle is so much fun. He says some weird, crazy, and funny things. He is always in a great mood in the morning when he wakes up, and that is nice. He loves Lightening McQueen and has oh about a billion cars. If we let him watch Cars on repeat all day he would sit there and watch it. He LOVES that movie. What is funny I took Teagan to see it on June 16, 2006 in the theater. Well Rayle was born on the 17th. Maybe there is a connection there since he was so close to being born. Rayle also loves Buzz Lightyear, and was his number one until recently when McQueen took the spot. He still loves Buzz very much though. Rayle is excited about becoming a big brother, he just wishes that I am having a boy instead of a girl. He will start preschool in August for a few days a week, and I know he will enjoy it and learn quickly. He is completely potty trained and wearing underwear 24 hours a day. No pull-ups in this house for my big boy! I am so proud of him and he really is a joy. Here are some pictures of Rayle over the last 3 years.

On Saturday we had Rayle's party. It was low key but a good time. I am really proud of the cake. What do you think? Generally I buy cakes but with a tight budget forget it. I think this year has given me the confidence to make the cakes from now on. Yesterday we went out and had Red Robin cheap... Brian had a coupon for a free dinner and so did Rayle. The boys always share because they never finish a meal. So drinks and my meal plus tip was all we had to worry about. Got love coupons!! Here are some pics from Rayle's party.

Red Velvet Lightening McQueen cake.

Here he is all frosted. Why do they not make black frosting? Oh well.

Happy Birthday to Brian and Rayle. We both have a 3 and 5 year old, how funny.
I will never forget the day Rayle was born, it was one of the most special days of my life. I will remember that experience always. (thank you for letting me be there)
Jacob is also in love with cars, he just got some new car undies. If we still lived in town I would hire you to make the cake. It looked AWESOME!!!
P.S. I love the new belly shot. There is definitely something in there :)
