New Year's Resolution...maybe??

Ok so my New Year's resolution is to be more consistent with this blog. I want to make sure that our family and friends can see what is going on in the Ritch life. So far I haven't been doing a great job of that and I am sorry I guess our lives are so busy. At least I have been keeping up with Tobi's weekly photos even though I haven't been posting them. So I guess have some catching up to do. So here is what happened in October. Fortunately I have already posted the weekly pics. Not much happened in October other than Michael's birthday. I decided to take some pictures of Tobi in his diaper wearing nothing but his Daddy's bowtie and sitting next to his Daddy's shoes. So here are a couple of shots:
He is so precious. He did a great job because his aunt KK had come up to watch Tobi one day not only did she get to spend time with Tobi but I loved spending time with her. She taught me how to make a beautiful ribbon wreath. Here we are and my beautiful wreath:
Here are some more pictures of my beautiful boy.

The only other eventful thing that happened during October is I participated in the Pinterest challenge that was thought of by my favorite blog Young House Love. It is where you actually do something something that you pin on your pinterest account. So far I have made a mason jar into a soap dispensor, melted some crayons on a canvas, and made some very delicious recipes. I love pinterest! So here is what I did for the pinterest challenge inspired by this. Here was the wall before.
First I made templates of all of the frames I wanted to hang and taped them to the wall until I found the arrangement we liked. I then marked where the nails would go.
Once we figured out the arrangement I put nails in the wall and hung them. I am really excited abou how it turned out.
Well that is all of our October happenings. Another post tomorrow about November.
Take care,
