The Terrible Two's begin (kidding)

Ryker turned 2 on Sunday! I can't believe how fast the last two years have gone. His favorite things these days are Diego and Cars. He got a Diego cake and a cool Cars mat, among other things...

A year in review

2007 was a great year for the Zuidhof family. we've had lots of good times, here's a few highlites:
January--we celebrated Ryker's 1st birthday with family, first the Zuidhof side, then the Michel side (Lola and Grayson and Cassidy were in Argentina for the first part of the month climbing). ryker loved the games and food, but wasn't so sure about the cake.
April--natalie had a small crisis when she turned 29 (hopefully it won't happen at 30)

We enjoyed the Taber parade.

July--we had a great summer, playing, swimming, and taking a few short trips to waterton and montana.

August--this month brought some exciting news for our little family. One more will join us in April 2008.

October--We had thanksgiving in Picture Butte this year. It was great to have lots of family and lots of food. Ryker enjoyed the cherry pie the most (with the pie filling I canned this year) yummy!

Halloween was fun too. Ryker was a lion, roar. we left dad at home and went trick or treating in Welling (the best way to trick or treat).

November--we actually managed to finnish most of our Christmas shopping this month.
December--we got to celebrate when Grayson and Diana got married in the Alberta temple.
Christmas was fun. ryker got some great presents and we got to spend time with family.

we are looking forward to another year of fun and family. wishing you all a happy new year!
