As soon as I remember, I'll post about it.

Merry Christmas!

Box number 3

Box number 3

She loved them.
(sorry for the no make-up picture)

Merry Christmas!

December 2nd (our second box)

This is our #2 box.

Can I tell you how glad I am that I did this?
Brynlee is SO much fun with it!
All day long she asks "box?" or "trick-or-treat?"
(because there is candy in them sometimes and she's silly like that)
But she has to wait for mommy AND daddy to be home to do it.

Inside box number 2 was....

What's that you ask?
You can't tell what was inside because all you see is a crying baby??

Well, inside box number two was 2 Baby Ruths.
But she's crying because we couldn't open them fast enough for her
since "mean ol' mom" had to take a picture first.

how rude.


Merry Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

About a week ago I started a craft with one of my best buddies Sharley
It was a lot of hard work and it wasn't the cheapest BUT it turned out great. I'm so excited to start this series. First I'll show you what I made, then I'll update you each day.

Here is Sharley's post about the project.

Here is my homemade Advent Calendar
(click on the picture, make it bigger and check that thing out!)

This is the present from Day 1.

Can you guess what it is?

Dad said it wasn't very "Christmas-y" but Brynlee loved it and that's what matters!
There was a laffy taffy in there as well but she chomped that down QUICK.

As you all know, Brynlee was the smiley-est baby around and only lately is she having issues. haha.. this is her new smile. It happens when we say "Brynlee, show me your teeth"

haha! funny girl.

Anyway! Merry Christmas everyone!

this is a big deal!

I'm blogging guys, this is huge! I never blog anymore. check it out, see how long it's been since my last post. bah haha..

but here I am. :)

First I'll start by saying that Thanksgiving was good. As good as it could have been, due to the circumstances.

Nick and I lost a very close friend of ours the Sunday before Thanksgiving and the viewing and funeral was on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. We were thankful that we still had each other and our beautiful baby girl but couldn't help missing Kevin. A lot. I love you buddy. I miss you like crazy.

Kevin, Vivian and Payton.


After Thanksgiving on Friday, we went to Chuck E. Cheese for a friends birthday!
Brynlee had a BLAST!!
I should have recorded the way she was dancing with the animatronics on stage. SO cute! :)

Dad put her up sooo high.

She was kinda scared of this, it was a little shakey.

Loved the clock.

She ate pizza and cake and ran around playing and acting like a crazy girl all night. I know she had so much fun. We'll be back again I'm sure. Ya know what was the hardest part? Thinking about germs... oh LORD, I bet that place is disgusting. I did alright but she got straight into the bath when we got home. Ha!
As we were leaving, she saw the girl leaving with the balloons we brought her and it broke her heart! She thought because they came to the party in our car, that they got to leave in our car too. I'm sorry baby! Your birthday is coming (ohh emm gee!!!!!!!!!)
Mommy will get you some balloons then!

Love you guys. I've missed you.
