fun slash busy

this week has been off-the-hook-fun but equally as busy! i apologize for the blog-hiatus, i mean...{not that anyone cares} but i've been otherwise occupied by family functions, projects, & preparing o' cancun trip 2007!

the highlights of the week were events that celebrated my little bro ryan's graduation from mesa high school, home of the jackrabbits. congratulations r-dawg!



ryan james dixon is one of my favorite people ever invented.

he is, in a word: amazing.

he is, in like twenty words: hilarious, kind, thoughtful, hardworking, genuine, talented, witty, selfless, honest, valiant, compassionate, punny, non-judgmental, humble, friendly, without guile, sweet, smart, ridiculously funny, down-to-earth, & freakin' awesome/adorable!

as a token o' my excitement for him & this milestone, i created a simple scrapbook for him containing some random words of wisdom/memorable photos to assist him along in adulthood-ness.

here are some slightly ghetto pictures of said scrapbook:













love ya ry-guy!

{happy graduation my brotha}

Yes, Angie do you sale the books? I WISH!! That is the cutest thing I've seen. You and Amber are THEE best scrapbookers ever. I love to copy her stuff and your stuff. And I love your classes, I've just been too poor & busy lately to attend. But I can't wait to start again.

Okay, I am pretty sure I just saw you buy all that scrapbook stuff on Thursday. And you are already finished??? That is amazing!! I would be done probably by next high school graduation.

I couldn't be more proud.

Once again, I wish I was you.

Can I invite myself over to see your house sometime? I love to see the same house (ok, I've only seen 2 others) that are the same model- because it gives me ideas. :) For instance, I've been wondering what to put at the breakfast bar because there are no bar stools that look good. That is, none until I saw your without backs. That's the golden ticket!

The book you made is so cute! I should have made one for my step-brother. :) Oh well! Have a great day!

What a cute idea. He probably loves it allready, but will TOTALLY adore it while on his mission.
I wish we would've done something homemade for Brad.
BTW- I have only talked to your brother like twice, buthe is really nice.
I always think one of their friends is your brother, TYSON?.. HA. I've asked the other guy twice ?'s about you. He looks like your fam for some reason. OH, AND my mom loves your REAL brother.
