Feliz Navidad!

Brynne is 10 1/2 months and she is changing so much everyday that I feel like I need to write down all of her achievements!
- says mama non stop, it means mom, more, dad, pick me up, I'm hungry, etc.
- says dada, means dada and I just want to babble.
- says uh oh, if she drops something.
- says ama at the end of a prayer. This is especially enjoyed by the family sitting behind us in sacrament meeting

WE DO

Thanksgiving trip

Thanksgiving was such a fun day! One thing that we are grateful for is that both our families live within a hour of each other so we get to spend time with both sides out the family each trip out! Taylor and his brother made this cool swing to entertain Brynne and our nieces!
California Thanksgiving, Maddi digging in the dirt!
Grandma Broughton pushing Brynne...Brynne did not want to get out of that swing we tried a few times to go, but she wouldn't have it!
Taylor and his mom swinging...
Lots and lots of Turkey!!
Our brand new nephew Jack! (6th grandchild and first boy, yay!)
Dan, Kalie, and Jack

Grammy and Papa McAffee's house in Benecia

Oh you know, just feeding the chickens! Brynne was a fan of these guys..well I guess they are girls. Taylor also had fun harassing the poor things.
Can you believe Todd doesn't have a girlfriend! Brynne and handsome uncle Todd!
Chad drooling right after he had his wisdom teeth out.....cool shoes man.
Life is good!
We went to Muir woods beach, it was a perfect day! Brynne loved the water and wanted in it, even though it was fridgid, yet again just like her dad:)
Hoods!

25th birthday party

Taylor had a great birthday party while we were in Ca! He got tons of presents including a keyboard, Jacket, camelback, piano music, gift cards, and more. It pays to be 25 apparently! We wish we lived closer to all our California friends, it was such a fun night!

Scary Clause

Tonight was our ward Christmas party, Brynne was passed all around the ward and let anyone hold her.......except for santa!




She was grateful for the candy cane!

Primary Pizza Party!

A few weeks ago we had our primary class over for pizza, they have been looking forward to the party for months! (we kinda used it to bribe them to be good for months also, it was great!) It really turned out so well, they are hilarious as always! We had 7, 6 year olds running around our house for about two hours. They had pizza, decorated cookies, played the balloon game (you tie a balloon to everyones leg and they try to pop everyone elses without getting there's popped...only ended in one girl crying) Jumped on the love sack and were really really loud. It was nice to just let them play instead of trying to keep them reverent. The best thing about our ward is these kids most of them live in our court, the girls always come over..many times a day to check on Brynne, the boys come over trying to sell us there wares (Halloween candy they dont like and pictures they have drawn, and a cardboard and duck tape shelve they made.)
