Why even try.....

I decided rather then even try to catch up with all of the pictures and events from the past 4 months, I will simply post a few pictures and let the past be the past! Ty is experiencing all of the major signs and symptoms of cabin fever. We are so sick of being cooped up in the house we can hardly stand it! Macy is running all over the house chasing Ty as fast as her little legs can carry her. We are happy and loving life at the moment!
In December we had a major rainstorm IN OUR HOUSE! At the time we were totally devastated by it, but we quickly were able to see the silver lining! We were able to get enough insurance money to repaint and recarpet the entire upstairs as well as redo our kitchen. We have been doing the majority of the work ourselves so it has taken a long time to say the least! But I am loving my new upstairs and the kitchen is nearing completion, an end is in sight! Pictures will come shortly! I am going to be better blogging, in case any one out there is still interested in my life!

Grandma Great's Birthday Party

On Saturday the Brown clan headed to Ogden to celebrate Grandma Great's Birthday. She truly is an incredible woman and someday I hope I can be like her in so many ways! We went to the Sizzler, which was nothing to write home about) and ate some yummy birthday cake from Costco. All in all a great day! She had been wanting some vinyl lettering for one of her rooms and came up with the quote "The best journey always takes us home." I loved how it turned out, it looked great on the wall! I think I will make one for my house!
Ty and my Mom made a hut behind the train table and Ty was convinced that it was the perfect sleeping spot for both him and grandma. Keep in mind the hut was not even big enough for Ty to sleep in. Grandma is so great to appease him to at least pretend they were going to sleep there. With a little convincing Ty settled for Grandma sleeping in his bed instead.
The next day Ty had his primary program so my parents stayed the night to come to that on Sunday. He did great despite the cold he was having, he was not in much of a performing mood!

Halloween 2009

Halloween started off great with a visit from Grandpa and Grandma Brown. Always a great start to any day! Then we continued on to our tradition of going to the Lamb's ward Halloween Carnival and Trunk or Treat. Ty loves it. They have good food, fun games, and company! Ty was so indecisive this year about what to be. He kept switching back and forth from Batman and Darth Vader. The result: Batman on the inside combined with a Darth Vader mask and cape on the outside! It was great! Wendy had some really cute matching cat costumes that we put Macy and Millie in, they also looked very cute! Macy loved being in the costume, she cried and cried when it was time to take it off. I think she made the connection that the cute cat costume got her some great candy from anyone she came in contact with!
Notice the awesome pumpkins carved by John that he does every year. The one with all the holes drilled in it has always been a personal favorite, along with the unique costumes he comes up with every year!

Happy Birthday Macy!

I cannot believe she is one! On one hand it seems she has been a part of our family forever, while on the other I cannot believe a whole year has past! She is so sweet, yet fiesty as can be! She has quickly learned that all she needs to do it make a little fuss and she has three people at her becking call ready to assist her in any way! We love you so much miss Mace, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday TY!

This little boy has been the greatest little adventure ever! He is so full of life, energy, and pazzaz! He is 110% boy and proud of it! Tender hearted, yet tough and unstoppable. He loves any sort of sport you throw at him, camping, 4-wheeling, x-box, superheroes, cars, balls, running, playing, and being with his cousins to name a few! There truly is never a dull moment when he is around. Ty, we love you all the way to Japan, past Jupiter, to the far American South, to the Sand Dunes and back, walking slowly with a car our backs!

Ty's party

Ty had his first official friend party yesterday. I use the term"friend" very loosely since it mainly consisted of all his cousins! He insisted on making his own invitations, planning his own activities and being fully in charge. It turned out to be a lot of fun for the kids even though they did hardly any of the planned activities. Instead they just ran around like a bunch of wild animals having a great time!
