Our family picture

So all that we needed was a simple snapshot of our family for our ward directory....It wasn't that simple.  We had to set the camera on an automatic timer, and the madness ensued.  The kids are starving, I just got out of the shower and have wet hair and no makeup, Ryan REALLY didn't want to do this, and Kenyon refused to smile at all unless we gave him candy.  I never want to do this again.
River making a run for it, and apparently that is Kenyon's smile.

Ok, Kenyon, that's enough.  I think I might be trying to dry my hair.  Thank you for holding it together River
This is basically a picture of my life in general
If you can believe it THIS is the final picture...Kenyon's jazz hands and all

Kenyon clearly annoyed, Ryan gone....I've think I'm trying to picture myself on a warm beach somewhere.....Didn't work....Still here

What's been going on!

So clearly it has been nearly a century since I've updated the blog.  So here is a rundown of everything that has been going on.
Kenyon is in 2nd grade and having a great time.  He rides his bike like a champ and is crazy awesome at the Wii. 
River is 3 and is a little sassy pants.  He is finally potty trained, so he no longer has to be locked in the closet after he wets the bed....Just kidding.  He is also awesome at the Wii and sometimes beats Ryan, which doesn't make Ryan happy.
Our latest edition to the Barker family is our baby Skye Lily.  Ok, it really has been a while, because our little baby is turning 1 this month.  She was born on 9/22/09.  She is the best baby in the entire world, she is such a joy and quite beautiful to boot.  Here are some pictures of our life this past year.
