Winter Break in Utah!

So for our winter break we went to Utah. It was fun to see all of the family, everyone was there. (Except Jake, he will be be home in April.) Broden and I were sick and had to go to the doctor, so that was not fun to start our vacation off. We all celebrated my mom's bday which was on the 1st, Broden's was on the 5th and my dad's was on the 23rd. February is a busy birthday month.

Broden First Baseball Practice

Broden had his first Baseball Practice! He did Awesome. He has only played one year of Tee Ball and I was a little nervous about him doing machine pitch this year but to my surprise he hit two balls. Opening Day is March 8th so I will keep you all posted on how he does!

Valentine's Day

As you all know Broden is all about the Camo, so it was no surprise when he wanted to decorate his Valentine's Box in Camo! He had a Valentine's Party at school it was fun, I made heart shaped cookies and the kids decorated them. We also played Valentine's BINGO.

Broden Got His Purple Belt!

On Saturday Broden tested for his purple belt in karate.

He got a 90 (which is the highest you can get) on his form, self defense and sparing.

It is cool to look back and see how much he as improved over the year.

Broden's 8th Birthday

Broden turned 8 on Feb. 5th. He had a birthday week not day! On Tuesday I took cupcakes to his class and also ate lunch with him. That night Bill, Broden and I went to dinner. Broden picked Long Horn Steak House. After dinner we came home and he opened his presents. We had his friend party on Saturday. We went and saw the movie Water Horse and then took them to dinner. After that we came home and had cake and ice cream and opened presents. Broden LOVES camo so that was the theme of his Birthday. I can't believe he is 8! He is such a great kid. I am so lucky to be his mom!

My Mom's Birthday Surprise

Broden & I flew to St. George this weekend to surprise my mom for her birthday. She had no idea, all weekend she kept saying 'I cant believe you are here'. We had such a great time shopping & eating! Thanks for being such a great mom! I love you!

Bill's Birthday

It was Bill's birthday on the 2nd. We celebrated it last weekend because Broden and I flew out to St. George to surprise my mom for her birthday. I have the best husband. He was so sweet to let me miss his birhtday to go spend the weekend with my mom. I am so lucky to have him in my life. He is my best friend. There is never a dull moment with him, he is always trying to make me laugh. Thanks for all you do for Broden and I. Love you babe.
