Happy Birthday Brody!!

Posted by Picasa
I can't believe that it has been a year that I was giving birth to this special little boy. We were not expecting to have another baby right away after Brynlee. But we are so thankful to Our Father in Heaven for sending us another sweet spirit. Brody has been a fairly easy baby, it was just adjusting to two kids that our only 16 months apart that I had a hard time with. Brody is always smiling and loves his older Brother and Sister. We are so blessed to have him be a part of our family!
Love you Brody Boy!

Celebrating Brody's 1st Birthday

Brody's Race Track Cake

Mommy and Aunt Clarissa made my cake..It looks yummy.

Everyone was singing to me, I didn't know what to think of their singing.

I enjoyed my cupcake. I loved putting my fingers in the frosting.

Brody enjoying his cupcake..mmm delicious.

Brody's official Birthday isn't until the 29th but Grandma and Grandpa Carranza were going to be in town so we decided to celebrate a little early. Grandma McNeil and Mark came down to join in the fun. We are so thankful to all the family that came to celebrate this special day with Brody.

Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Mom!

My Mother turned 50 this Saturday she came to Mesa so that we could celebrate as a family. We had a busy Morning with Brayden's soccer game. We had lunch then I took my mom to get her toes done. She loves and enjoys this so it was my treat to her. Then she was off to have her hair done by my sister. Later this evening we went to Red Robin for her Birthday Dinner. All Seven of us of children shared this evening together with her. I want to let my mother know that I am so blessed to have her in my life. She is so amazing for raising seven children, she always would put us first. She made many sacrifices for us while we were growing up. She has stood by me no matter which choices I have made in my life. She always let's me know that she loves me. Her example has made me a better mother, friend and wife. I love you Mom! I hope you had a great Birthday!

It's Soccer Time!!

Brayden played soccer last year, so this year he has improved a lot. This year we put him in AYSO. They do things a little different then what he played last year. They play three on three, they have two games going on at once so that everyone gets to play and touch the ball a lot more. I think it is teaching him how to control the ball a little better as he dribbles down the field. Daddy is his Asst. Coach again. Matt played soccer as little boy all the way up through college. So he enjoys being a Coach.

Brayden had his1st game on September 12th, and he almost scored twice. He just had his second game on September 19, and he scored three times. He was so excited and so were we as we yelled and cheered from the side lines. Soccer is a lot of fun! We are glad that Brayden enjoys it.

Labor day......

So this year for Labor Day we went to Eager, Arizona, in the Mountains. The Larsens grandparents have a cabin there, so we were lucky enough to join them and also have the Schad family join us. We enjoyed the nice weather in the mountains. I took my camera but my batteries were dead and I had no idea until we got up there. So these picture were either taken by Matt's camera phone or our Friends camera. It was a peaceful, quiet and cool weekend. The kids had fun playing in the rain, riding quads and just running around outside without getting over heated from the heat.We actually wore pants,long selve shirts and sweaters!! We are so lucky to have had this earth created for us to enjoy. We are so grateful for the wonderful time we had to spend with amazing friends.

When Grandpa and Grandma Come..

Last Weekend the kids were so excited to have Grandpa and Grandma here for the weekend. Brayden and Brynlee love when Grandpa comes because he always brings fun little treats for them. Brayden also knows that Grandpa loves going to the swap meet, brayden loves to go with him,this time Brynlee joined them also. They ate breakfast at the swap meet walked around and found some cool things. Brayden found some fun Hulk Hands. My kids are so lucky to have Grandparents that live so close and love to spend time with them.Brynlee was so sad when they were getting ready to leave that she threw a screaming fit because she wanted to go with them. We love you!!!
