Brynne is 2!

I Can't believe this baby is 2 years old. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about this time two years ago. Definitely one of the best days of my life! Happy Birthday Brynne, we love you so much!
Brynne had a great Birthday, it started out the night before with a trip to Wal-Mart to get her 12 balloons, I wish I had taken a picture of her face when they brought out the balloons, she was in heaven! They had to stay by her everywhere she went that night. Eating dinner, brushing her teeth, getting her diaper changed.
In the morning Taylor made her choc. chip pancakes and let her help!
I didnt want to leave Dane completely out of this post, because he's so darn cute!
She opened presents! Grandma and Grandpa B gave her the outfit she is wearing and when she saw it she screamed "OH SHIRT!!" only she forgot to pronounce the "r."
She had a happy meal!
Played at the play place.
Went to the muddy park!
Had a Barney cake!
Tried out her new roller blades!
Wore her new PJ's to bed. All in all it was the best day ever for a 2 year old I'd say!

What's New in Mapleton.

Dane is 5 months old! Here comes the cliche...I can't believe how big he is, they grow up so fast :)
Dane is just full of tricks at 5 months, he can roll over both ways, he's working on sitting up, he is eating solids, depending on his mood he is either freaked out when he see's Brynne or he thinks she is hilarious, loves to take a bath, being sung to, reading books, drooling, baby talk, smiling, laughing, playing with anything that makes noises especially plastic grocery sacks (under supervision of course, what kind of mom do you think I am?) He hates being set down, so he is usually carried in the bjorn around the house, when Brynne try's to get to close, loud noises, riding in the car, being fed too slowly, being dressed. We love our sweet little man so much!
What the? Your feeding me vegetables?
Love those kissable cheeks.
The best seat in the house.
Brynne is taking a mommy and me gymnastics class, she just had her second class today. She has NO fear at all, this is her favorite activity, I have to pry her off of it so other kids get a turn. I'll probably post more pictures about the class later.

Brynne's favorite activity at home besides watching Barney is doing dishes, she always asks me "more dishes please" She really just likes playing in the water, but I'm planning on never letting her forget she said this when she's older!
The other day Brynne was eating Jello and turned around to see Dane happily being fed something a little more delicious than pureed carrots.

Brynne's friend Jade taught her the fun of dress up and Brynnes swim suit is a favorite. This was a good 2 year old activity, she stayed in there for a hour playing with toys...we don't have a bath tub, just a shower, so it was exciting!

December from Taylors Phone

Our camera is being fixed, so December pictures are from Taylors phone :)


Taylors work gave him executive suite seats to a Jazz game (The seats were even leather!) They also paid for us to have a fancy dinner! We had sooo much fun!!
We went sledding down the dam in AF canyon with Todd, Kenny and Andrea on Christmas eve day!


Brynne Loved it! Dane wasn't a fan of the cold or his hat falling into his face!

Kenny made us hot chocolate from snow, yum!
Andrea and I almost hit this dumb dog that wouldn't get out of the way resulting in a almost broken thumb for me..this pic doesn't do it justice! I was convinced it was broken for a couple weeks, but it's healing very nicely now!
Christmas morning was sooo fun, Brynne loved opening her presents, although it took awhile because she wanted to play with each toy before she moved on. Taylor made us homemade biscuits and gravy!
My famult all got to talk to chad on Skype so it felt like we were all together on Christmas morning :)

We ate Christmas Dinner at Alex and Megan's, it was fabulous and Brynne still keeps talking about Ella and Lucy.
One of Danes presents was rice cereal...he has learned to love it and we are now on carrots! Its rough to be 4 months on Christmas!
We went to the Provo Town Centre mall for New Years Eve, Taylor was in a hot sauce eating contest and won us a free chips and salsa coupon from Chili's (we thought that was a classy prize!)
Brynne rode the train, had candy, got a balloon animal, it was a good time, they even had 9:00 fireworks for people like us who only made it tell then :)




We went to the BYU game on Saturday with the kids, they were so good. Oh and amazing win tonight against Utah!

We hope you all had a fabulous Christmas season. We felt very blessed this Christmas season and tried to focus on whats most important! Were grateful for all of the amazing friends in our lives!
