I'm Back!

I haven't blogged in so long.  Between moving, exhausting days of pregnancy, to super exhausting days of  having a newborn and 3 year old, I just couldn't find the time.   Kaylee is now on a good nap schedule and sleeping through the night so things are getting easier.  I am starting to feel human again!  Having pictures and a journal about Brynlee when she was little is priceless.  I can't imagine not having that for Kaylee.  So here I am. 

I'll catch you up on the last year and a half. 

We went to Durango, Colorado for a family reunion in July 2011.

 Watching fireworks at Silverton, the echo was unreal. 

Brynlee and her cousins minus 1.  Poor Lylah was car sick from riding in the mountains. 
Took this video on the way to Colorado.  I had completely forgotten about it!  Hands down one of my favorite videos to date.  
Zoo with friends

Duane and I went to Vegas in August 2011.  He had a conference to attend...I could usually be found at the pool or the hotel spa.  Fun week.

In October 2011 I went to Miami Beach with 3 amazing ladies! 

Driving to the Florida Keys.  

Who would have thought a year later 3 of us would have newborns born 4 weeks apart?

Moving Day January 2012
My dad chose to ride in the back of the truck for the 3 mile drive to our new house.  Brynlee sure loves her poppa. 

Goodbye first house...
Hello new house!
On January 31, 2012 I found out I was pregnant.  I bought a big sister for Brynlee.  I put it on her and waited for Duane to come home.  It was a fun way to tell him. 


Announcing to the world we are having a GIRL!!!  We were so excited for Byrnlee to have a little sister. 
In May we went to Disney World with my parents.  Brynlee celebrated her 3rd birthday while we were there.  It was so wonderful.  I would encourage everyone to let all their children celebrate at least one birthday at Disney.  They do a great job to make sure the day is special.  Brynlee started her birthday with a cupcake at 7am.

 After the Winnie the Poo ride B refused to ride anything else.  Took her awile to realize she liked the carousel.  

 Tinkerbell is her favorite.  Highlight of the trip!
Mickey ears
Favorite ride...we could have just went to the mall.  Ha!

This was how she looked each night.  I called it the mickey mouse pass out.  Gosh I love her!
Thanks Mom and Dad for taking us!  We had a great time and can't wait to go again. 
Brynlee turns 3!  We had a party at the park with 2 other friends from church.  Brynlee's favorite things are singing, going to the park, playdates with friends, tinkerbell anything, art, grandparents, fixing stuff aka working with daddy, and being outside.  Favorite movie...big bird stuck in a cage (Follow That Bird) or tinkerbell.  Favorite TV show...Handy Manny or Caillou.  Favorite Foods...all fruit, carrots, avocado, ice cream, cookies, pizza, pei wei, yogurt, milk, and apple juice.  She is full of energy from the moment her feet hit the floor in the morning. 

 The birthday girls
 Favorite thing to do...digging in the dirt
