Rylie Dawn Alwyn

Rylie had many names before Rylie was chosen... The day before she was scheduled to be born via c section I printed off a list of R names and on the way with her dad to his grandmas we picked Rylie from the list. 

If I had it my way she would have been Hazel Alwyn:) when I was pregnant with her I went to see my grandpa who was dying... I actually ran away and little did I know it was my last time seeing conversing with my grandfather. We chose Alwyn because his name was Alwin Frank . He said " we'll you can't call her frank that's awful :) so we switched the I for a y and out came Alwyn.... Then out came Rylie with Hazel hair. My grandpa died 7 days later, I still have not been to his grave ( death is hard for me) and I was not able to travel post c section to his funeral. 

Rylie reminds me of him she has his spirit his love and his charm. 

Today we went to Target to walk around hold hands and try to help her calm down. She broke down and told me her worries and as her mother I want nothing more than to take them away and lynch  the monster and make him pay! However  I'm her mum and if I acted on my primal instincts I'd be whisked away. So instead I just squeezed her hand three times ( our signal for I love you) and hugged her.

5 years later true to form

Five years later....

Ty in control the level headed sometimes dictator of the household. A complete joy and bundle of cuddles.

Rylie posing smiling brightly while simultaneously preventing Oliver from climbing off the chair. She's a multitasking kind hearted spunky girl.

Olivia has the most attitude in the condensed size. She's love and makeup mischievousness wrapped in fairy form.

Oliver always having his sights set on the next step the next adventure. Determined and more stubborn then rinsing out a peanut butter jar! We wouldn't have him any other way.

Me I'm somewhere in the background avoiding the flash some say it brings out my vampire.

Succulents of Sheriff Way

Succulents make me happy and I've collected quite a few! Gardening has become a new interest of mine. I only have a little space non the less it brings me calm. And my cacti and air plants are bloody awesome!!!
