Rigby Family update

So I cant believe we are to March already. Where has all the time gone??? My big boy is growing up so fast I can't hardly stand it. Gregg always teases me that I wish we lived in Never Never Land where the kids never grew up. I admit its true I hate how fast Shakobe grows and changes every single day. He has been the best thing for Gregg and I because he has taught us so much. It's funny how one little guy can change two adults so much, but the credit goes fully to Shakobe. We still have a lot of growing to do so its good our little man is patient and willing to help his mom and dad. Here is a little bit of what our little monk has been up to lately!!!!
This is one of my top ten favorite pictures of Shakobe. He had to go outside and help his dad shovel snow. It was so awesome because Gregg did not even show him how to do it he just picked up his shovel and went to work. The hardest part was getting him to come back inside. I literally think he would have shoveled the whole neighborhood if we would have let him. Gregg and I have started this thing with him that now that he is going to be a big brother he gets some new responsabilities which include being dads little helper. Little do we know that shakobe would not have it any other way.  He loves to be doing whatever his dad is doing, and always tries to help us any chance he gets. It's just in that boy's blood and I could not be more proud!!
Aunt Jess planned a pizza party at her house for all the cousins and grandma and grandpa while moms and dads went out to dinner and a movie. FYI I tricked gregg into taking me to "Safe Haven" and after falling over and faking his own death he went to the theatre and actually said he enjoyed the movie. So any of you that need a chick flick that wont make your husband completly miserable go see safe haven it was way good. Shakobe had a great time while we were gone because aunt jess planned a movie night with pizza and root beer floats. He loved it which we are so thankful to the carpenters for planning such a fun evening and taking care of our little guy. 
 
Cuddling up with his Herd cousins for a movie night at Grandma and Grandpas.  He wanted to show them one of his very favorite movies Hotel Transilvania!!
 Saylor is a very good helper that always wants to take care of Shakobe. Even as he grows closer and closer to her same height she still tries to carry him around like a baby. LOL. He thinks its pretty funny too!!
 We had a family date night just Me, Gregg, and shakobe and we decided to take him bowling for the first time. He was in heaven!! Every direction he pointed there was a "BALL, BALL, BALL." Each time it was his turn he would throw the ball with gregg and he would yell, "GO, GO, GO, YAAAAAYYY!!!" It was so funny to see so much of his personality come out at that bowling alley we loved it.

When it was not his turn he decided it was just as fun to unload all the balls off the tray next to our lane. LOL

Our little man has started talking more lately . Although he is shy sometimes so i tried to catch some of it on video for everyone to see. We were doing reading time just before i took this and reading a book about numbers. After I said one he said two when the page said two. Smart Boy! So now he tells us he is going to be two!!! Notice when I ask him where his hair is he says ball and touches his head. Everything is a Ball!

So one night we were watching tv while eating dinner and this Gieco commercial came on that had a pro basketball player blocking everyones shots at different places then saying "Not in My House." Well Shakobe thought it was the funniest thing in the world so I just kept rewinding it and playing it for him and he laughed just as hard everytime. Grandpa Richard said we need to send it in some where cuz it shows just how happy Gieco can make a almost two year old laugh. It certainly makes my day every time i watch this video and we hope it does the same for you.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN
As you can tell me and Gregg dressed up as bacon and eggs. ha ha. It was the first time in years either of us dressed up and Im so happy my husband was such a good sport about it. We spent halloween night at my sisters house watching my all time favorite halloween movie Hocus Pocus.
Me and my niece and nephew on halloween night. Rylie was a "cute witch" as she would say and my nephew was Edward. The man of all our dreams. It was a fun night.
We or should I say I dressed up our kitty for halloween. He absolutely hated it but put up with it for about five minutes to make me happy.

Rollercoaster

Rollercoaster
So I had to show everyone this picture of our family on the Atlantis rollercoaster at sea world. The looks on everyones faces is priceless. Lol, especially my sisters and myself.
