It's been a while...

since we last blogged. No real changes with us. Brittiny and I have divided time between our kids & Matlock reruns on Lifetime. All is well, no complaints.

Brittiny had to bribe Brooklyn to let her snap some pics. She's growing up so fast. Before I know it I'll be time to go pawnshopping for a shotgun.

Braden is now old enough to fore-go the nightly milk. Instead he and Brookers now share a pre-bedtime protein shake.

Brooklyn & her Pre-school pals made Rice Krispie treats. Little Andrew, in the green smock, always finds excuses to give Brooklyn a hug. He always finds her at church and invents excuses to get close to her. The day he breaks out some Li'l Buckaroo cologne it's gonna be curtains for the whole group Pre-school experiment.

A few months back we had a couple of big snowstorms. The kids loved playing in the snow. I couldn't get the kids to come inside, so I lied and said I saw a snow-snake. It worked to get them back in the house. Uncle Don also sprinted to the front door as well.

Bear playing with Nina. I think Nina gets frustrated with Bear's weak throwing arm. I've noticed that as the tennis ball duties have naturally been abdicated to grandchildren Nina has grown increasingly 'hippy'.

Brooklyn with gal pal Avery. Those two were like a couple of long lost teen girl squad members reunited.

Bear is growing up too fast, too. Time for another baby!

You inspired me to update my blog as well.

Your kids are tooo cute!

Adorable kids, which member of teen girl squad is Brooklyn?
Any chance you 4 will be in Utah the end of June/beginning of July?

So cute..Brooklyn is becoming so beautiful and Brady so handsome. He actually COULD toss that ball, but the Nina is sooo wily. She would just run up and snag the ball & chuckit before he had time to get a decent throw in. He was completely transfixed by the Nina his entire visit. ALways needed to know where she was (hiding from him, mostly)

Nina has THYROID issues, give her a break!! She is looking much better now, I give her Synthroid twice a day, she's almost kind of svelt-ish.

Oh, boy, I TOTALLY misinterpreted Holly's "Magic Bullet" comment.

The picture of Brooklyn is fabulous. You better make that trip to the pawnshop sooner rather than later! She is just way to cute.

Brady looks really has that lost puppy dog look down pat. Wanna just take him home.

The picture of Avery and Brooklyn is priceless. Could Avery be more of a Peterson? It's like looking through a time-warp.

Cute kids- they are getting big! We miss you guys, come down anytime to visit:)

Thanks for sharing the pic. Drew can hardly decide if he loves Brooklyn or Jeremy Dolan more as his best friend and will be so sad to loose his reason to go to primary. I found out he actually asks other girls to move so he always sits by her!
I abolutely love your writing style and will miss working with you...please train your successor so I don't have to ;). Okay, that is a lie, I will tweak to my heart's content. I need an elders quorum pres to actually be in town and stick around for a while!
