He is finally here!

Let me introduce myself...my name is Matthew "Brody" McNeil. I was born Sept. 29th, 2008 @ 2:36am, weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was 19 inches long.
As you know we thought long & hard about the name. We finally came to a decision literally a couple of hours before leaving the hospital! It felt like it was a matter of life or death...which it was really about "a" life...Brody's. We stuck with a "Br" name but in a little unusual way if you haven't already noticed. We are SO glad that he is here and are forever grateful to our Heavenly Father for him!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

I want to wish my Mom a Happy Birthday!! I wish I could do somehting special for her today but she doesn't live close enough. Mom, I want you to know that you have been a great example for me in my life. I strive to be more like you everyday. You always put others first and serve others before you think about yourself. I hope to strive to be close to the lord as you are. Thanks for being you and for all that you have taught me through the years... I hope to see you soon! Love your oldest Daughter

Our Silly Little Girl (Princess)

Brynlee is now 15 months, she is in the 95% for her height and is in the 25% for her weight.. She is our little monster, she loves climbing and opening every drawer and cabinet that she can reach. Boy will I have my hands full when the new baby comes. Here are some sassy pictures of her as grandpa makes her laugh. She sure loves her grandparents so much.

Brayden's New Hair Cut!!!

This week Brayden decided him and a friend needed a new hair style; after school on Wednesday, while mom was at work, he was over at a friends house and he came across some beard clippers and attempted to cut his hair. He ended up cutting a hole on side of his head that was pretty much down to his scalp. So the only way to fix his hair was to cut it all down to the same length. So here is his new do.. Thank goodness he is a boy and hair grows back pretty fast for him..

Go Broncos!!!!

For the 1st time we had a chance to go to the Glendale Stadium with our friends Ethan & Jen. Ethan's brother, Spencer, is playing for the Broncos, so we went to the game last weekend. We cheered as loud as we could for him and the Broncos won! We were so excited!! We had no voices at the end of the night. Thank you to Ethan and Jen for inviting us, we had a blast!!!
