Happy Birthday Brynlee!!

Brynlee is our Little Princess!!

She is 2 years old today! Daddy still can't believe that we have a girl. Brynlee has her daddy wrapped around her little finger. I still remember when we went in for the ultrasound and the ultrasound tech asked us if we wanted to know what we were having and we said "Yes". She said "It's a Girl!" I was so excited... Matt response is "Are you sure?", "how can you tell it is a girl." She explained to him where she saw that it was a girl. After we left that day he was in denial. There was no way that a McNeil could have a girl. She entered into the world two years ago. We love her so much. We are so grateful to have sassy Brynlee in our family. She always keeps us laughing with the silly things that she does.

Happy Birthday to Our Little Princess!!

My youngest Brother is 14!!

On May 24th Jeffrey turned 14!! We had a yummy dinner as a family. Jeff wanted Brownies and ice cream instead of cake for his special day. Jeffrey is the youngest out of seven. He is entering into high school this August. He is becoming a great young man. I can't believe that he is 14, I remember the day when he was born. We love you and thanks for being a great uncle!!

On Saturday my sister planned a movie day. Just us girls, my sister Clarissa, my sister in law Karalee and I, went to watch a chick flick. My sister was getting induced the very next day to have her 1st child, so she wanted to go watch one last movie before she has to find a babysitter to go watch a movie or rely on her husband. We loved the movie & had a blast!

I love you girls!!!

Brynlee loves her Brobee..

Brynlee loves her little brother. She can't quiet say his name yet, but she sure tries. She calls him Brobee. She loves to talk & play with brody. When ever he starts to cry she runs over to him and starts to talk to him to make him happy. We are so glad that she has gotten over the fact that she is not the center of attention anymore.(maybe) I love all of my kids so much that I hope I can show all of them that I love them all the same.

Brayden is finally done with Preschool!

Poor guy, he has been in preschool for three years. His Birthday is in Feb, so he will be older for his grade. He had so much fun this year with Mrs. Rebeccah and Miss Lauren. They did a great job! He is extremely ready to go to school. I am so glad that they have decided to have all day Kindergarten this year. He would be so bored with going to school just half a day. Brayden calls the elementary school 5 year old school. He knows that he will be going there soon. It is a happy thing for me but, yet sad... I can't believe that my first born, that I longed to have is entering into a different phase in his life. I will be so sad the first day of school.
I know he will do awesome in school!!

Our Sailor Brayden!

Brayden had a end of the year play this week. He was one of the Sailors. His part was "Hello Land lovers! Welcome to the Yellow Submarine!" Then they started to sing to the Yellow Submarine song. It was very cute.. We sure love our Sailor!!! He did a great job!

Brody Loves Eating....

Brody would not eat baby food at 6 months. He closed his lips so tight anytime you would bring the spoon near his face. It was a struggle to get him to eat. Now at 7 months he loves eating vegetables and fruits. I am so glad that he enjoys his food and that it is not a fight to feed him anymore.

Family Bowling Night!

A month ago we went bowling with some friends and their kids. Brayden and Brynlee had so much fun bowling and dancing to the music. We love spending time as a family. Here are some of the pictures that we took while bowling. Some of the pictures didn't come out good, must have been the bad lighting.

Mother of the Year...?

Well that is not me... Friday, Bradyen brought home a book he had made for me in Preschool for Mother's Day. I was excited to see what he had made for me. As I read it I smile, laughed and felt sad. I have to share a page with you, It reads,"My mom always says.. go to my roon now." I laughed after I read it but then thought, do I tell him this a lot? I wonder if his teacher thought what a bad mother he has. I really have sat and thought about this on this mother's day. I know that I am not perfect. I try hard to be the best mother I know how to be. I don't want my children to remember my faults.. I hope to be a more patient and loving to my children from this year forward. I love my children with all of my heart. I want the very best for each one of them. My mother posted a quote on her blog today that I would like to share that helped me have faith that I am doing my best. I Love you Mom.

"I feel to invite every woman everywhere to rise to the great potential within you. I do not ask that you reach beyond your capacity. I hope you will not nag yourselves with thoughts of failure. I hope you will not try to set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve. I hope you will simply do what you can do in the best way you know. If you do so, you will witness miracles come to pass."

Happy Mother's Day!!

I want to wish my mother a Happy Mother's day! She is a great example to me. I treasure all the things that she has taught me. I have learned to be a better mother because of her. I couldn't have asked for a more loving, kind hearted mother. I love you Mom!!
