This little babe just doesn't quit trying to do grow up! I was making lunch in the kitchen and this is where I found her. She is obsessed with climbing up the stairs, probably bc she knows she shouldn't. We are still working on going down the stairs since I still haven't put up any baby gates. For now she gets too excited to go up the stairs so she is not interested in going down them.

This year we spent Thanksgiving with the Ericsons. We headed over to their house at noon for a yummy turkey dinner. The kids loved playing and watching shows all afternoon.
 The 3 babies all born within 3 months.
 Brayden didn't eat much, then fell asleep with Andrew on the couch. As we left we realized he had a fever :( We all headed to the movie theaters at Jordan Landing to watch the movie Frozen. We absolutely loved the movie and thought the music was fantastic (I bought the soundtrack as soon as we got home :) Brayden barely made it through and crashed as soon as we got home. Luckily it was just a fever and no one else caught it.

Hogle Zoo

The zoo has free admission on the last Wednesday of every month during the winter. The weather was beautiful so we decided to head on up. Cindy and my grandma came with us and we had a great time as always.
 Brynlee's favorite animal...the kitty.

These 2 are best friends, they just don't know it yet. Exactly 2 months apart! My camera started acting weird and starting flashing before the flash...hence the pics with the eyes closed.
Brielle loves this puppy. It barks and walks around and she'll follow it and try to give it kisses...which end up with her trying to eat it.

Brayden's Minute to Win it Party

After we did our family's Minute to Win it Halloween Party, I decided it would be a ton of fun to do the same thing fro Brayden's bday party. It was SO easy to put together and with the help of my mom and sister, Rachelle, we had a successful party! We had about 15 kids, so we split them into 4 teams. My sister and my mom had 2 teams in the basement to do 6 games while I took the other 2 teams upstairs to do 6 games then we switched. The kids had a blast!

Sunday Night at Grandpa's

While Josh was in Wisconsin for the BYU game, I headed to my parents house for Sunday dinner and to hang out. The kids love playing with grandma and grandpa and we had a blast hanging out. Thanks mom for dinner and letting us crash your house! Here are the kids with grandpa watching the Little Mermaid.

7 Months

Brielle keeps growing and wanting to be bigger than she is. Here are a couple random pics:
 She LOVES this drawer:
 All tuckered out...
 Brielle continues to be a ray of light in our home. She is always super happy and loves being around the kids. Her reflux is still in the severe category so sleeping is really hard for her, but we are working on it. Here are her 7 month pics:
