Keeping up with the Ripley's's been a while.

Happy 4th of July, Memorial Day, NFL Lockout end, Labor Day, Halloween, NBA Lockout end, Thanksgiving,  Merry Christmas, and New Year!

So instead of trying to recap it all, here's a brief update on everyone:


I'm still at eBay working in operations support for customer support. I've been there over 3 years now and still plan on being there for a while. I'm looking to get my first MMA fight in over 2 years (can't believe it's been that long). My weight as always is the biggest issue, but Shalie is actually holding me to my diet and workouts.  Other than that I'm just loving being a daddy and hubby.


Shay is still working as hard as ever as a momma. She ran the St. George Marathon back in October and finished in 4:01:37 hrs. While she was disappointed that she missed the sub 4hr mark by so little, we were all so proud of her. Shay was also the major driving force in planning our trip to Hawaii in March. Instead of standard presents this year, we decided to do a family trip. Shay truly keeps this household together with her hard work and motherly love.

This Diva is still working it! Kalia turned 4 in July and is growing up too fast for us. While she definitely has her moments, she's taken some big steps in being a "big girl." She has really taken on the roll as big sister lately. She helps mom with cleaning from time to time as well as keeps a sharp eye on her little brother. Like all older siblings, she definitely loves to pest him, but for the most part she takes good care of her little buddy. She's also still a funny mix of super prissy and a little tomboy. She told us the other day that she was an "ultimate fighter ninja princess."

This little guy is getting into as much trouble as he possibly can. His favorite thing to do right now is to find something he shouldn't do, look around to make sure that someone's looking, and then start doing it until you physically make him stop. He thinks it's hilarious (I'm sure he's eying something in this picture). For those who don't know, he has food allergies to dairy, tomatoes, and beans. This has contributed to him still being such a little guy (50th percentile in height and 3rd percentile in weight). It doesn't however slow down his appetite. He does not stop eating. Also he's been walking since around Thanksgiving and has a couple words in his vocabulary. Dada and Football are his favorites.

There you have it. The update has been performed.

Hopefully it won't take another year for the next one.

Ashton: While it's true that more people own pets today than ever before '" in fact, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2011-2012 National Pet Owners Survey, the number of U. September is National Pet Health Insurance Month and the companies are sponsoring a fun contest.
