Its not just about Hallie anymore!

This blog started as a place to show off our new daughter Hallie. As much as we love our little Hallie, there are other members of our family, so she no longer gets a whole blog to herself, and this is the new Teeples Family blog (even though I am sure there will still be many a entries about Hallie).

I've had so much fun reading all my friend's fun blogs, I decided to try my hand at it more frequently. I'm not a writer by any means so please bear with me, (so even if my entries are lame, tell me they're cool anyway).

I will start my first one off by telling a little about We the Teeples (thats Ryan's clever blog title). I won't write much, since most of you know us, and if you don't, you shouldn't be reading about us anyway unless you're really, really bored.

The man of the house is I mean - Ryan. He he's 6'5'" has dark hair and dreamy eyes, and loves long walks on the beach. Oh wait! That's not Ryan at all! The real Ryan is 6", has blond hair, blue eyes and would rather be reading a book on the beach.

Ryan quit his job as an executive at Investools and currently works from home and loves it (at least that is what I tell him). He and some buddies started an online resource site for people who invest in the Foreign Currency Exchange Market, or something. Even though he's explained it to me a gazillion times, it still is foreign to me (haha). He also does quite a bit of marketing consulting for companies, so he's got plenty to do. It is currently going real well, and he loves being at home doing his own thing. His site is if you have any idea what it's all about.

Ryan is a big BYU fan, and is trying to brainwash Eli to be one as well. He also likes to read, play with the kids, read, golf, design houses, read, write(he's the one that should be doing this), read, watch Simpsons, read, wakeboard, read. Yeah, he is kind of a nerd - but we love him anyway.

Then there is me, Lessley. I am pretty boring. I spend my time being a mom, shopping, being a mom, a little scrapbooking, being a mom, reading (not as much as Ryan), being a mom and of course playing with my sweet (most the time) kids, Eli and Hallie.

Eli is our rambunctious, has to know everything, never-stops-talking-and-asking-questions-almost-3-year-old. He is also our little comedian. I don't know where he comes up with his material, but he keeps us laughing constantly.

You also will not find Eli without his best friend, "Tiger," whom he named "Tigger-the-Pooh Bear." Don't ask me where that came from. He's never even seen a Disney movie or TV show.

Eli is developing quite the personality (if you want to call having an attitude personality). He's not a sweet little toddler anymore. His newest thing is to tell me "no", and yell at me. Yeah, its been fun! But we love our little Eli, and don't know what we ever did for entertainment before he came along (oh, yeah I do: We went to movies, dinner, snuggled, etc.).

But our newest edition is our sweet Hallie (click here for more pictures). She is getting so big. I can't believe how fast time goes! She is definitely a daddy's girl. Everytime she sees Ryan she gives him big smiles. Do you think she does that for Mom? No. But it's so much fun having a little girl, because you can dress them up and show them off. But one is enough for me.

Well that is our family in a nutshell. I guess I wrote a little more than I planned, so hopefully you all made it to the end, and didn't give up reading after the first line. I will post pictures and new entries here frequently, so check back often and see what I have to say.
