Broden was so excited to see snow coming down, since that is not a normal thing for St. George.
School was closed today for the snow. Broden cant wait to go out and build a snowman.

Broden Got His Bobcat!

On December 4th Broden got his bobcat at pack meeting! Thanks to his great Scout Leaders from Georgia and Utah. He was so excited to get up in front of everyone and get his patch.

When he was getting his Bobcat they painted his face and they told what it represents.
Broden thought that was way cool.

He also made the snowman neckerchief slide he is wearing!

So school has begun!!!

Broden is loving 3rd Grade!! He likes his teacher and has made a lot of friends in his class. He had his first project of the year. He had to make a Mobile about him. I think he did a great job.
When I went to back to school night it was hanging above his desk!
So one project down, a lot to go!!

Broden tested for his Second blue belt on Saturday! In his Karate starting with blue belt and up you have to do each belt twice. So Broden got his second blue belt! He broke his board on his first try and got a 90 on his form!!

Me and another mom figured the boys would be testing for their black belts this time next year!

My Husband the #1 CUBS Fan!!!

My Husband LOVES the Cubs! He is so excited every year when they come into town to play. This year they happen to come on my birthday. I told him that a Cubs baseball game was the last place I wanted to spend my 30th birthday at! Don't get me wrong I love to go to the games but come on my birthday!! ha ha (which the game got canceled because of rain anyways!) We went to the game on the 13th. We went with our neighbors Brian and Meg and their two kids Dylan and Emmie. We had a great time and Bill was happy because the Cubs won!!

Broden got Baptized

On August 2nd Broden was baptized by my brother Jake and confirmed by my dad. Broden turned 8 in February but wanted to wait to be baptized til Jake got home from his mission.

After the baptism we had a BBQ at my parents house.

It was an awesome day and I was so proud of my little man! He is growing up to fast!

Our Trip to Utah!!

We had a very busy time in Utah. It was so fun to see family and friends. Some of the things we did... We celebrated Kristy, Ronica, Matt & My Birthdays! We played at the Jump Zone where Seth works. We did a lot of swimming and of course I shopped!

Congrats Kristy & Seth

My sister is getting married October 17th!

I am going to make them a Scrapbook Guestbook for their wedding, so while I was in Utah I took a bunch of pictures of them. Seth is a great guy and I am excited that he is joining our family!

The Braces are OFF!

Broden got his braces off yesterday! He was excited and now he has to wear a retainer for one year, but only at night so that is not to bad. I am glad it is only at night and not all day. I can just see it being thrown away at school.

Braces ON...

Braces coming off!

They gave Broden a gift bag of stuff he was NOT suppose to eat while he had his braces.

Popcorn & Gum!

I was waiting for him to tell them that, "My mom still let me eat popcorn and gum while I had my braces on." But he didn't I was so proud he didn't rat me out!

Braces OFF!

4th of July Fun!!!

We started our day off by going to the Parade.

Us being Silly!

Broden had a great time catching candy from the floats.

We had a BBQ with some friends then got on the golf cart to go see the fireworks!

After the Fireworks we all came back to our house and we did some of our own!

It was our first "official" 4th of July here since Broden and Kasey were in Utah last year. We had a good time but still missed our family & friends in Utah!
