Brooklyn's 2nd Birthday

Hello again! It's been awhile and we have been very busy!  Brooklyn turned two last month and here are a few birthday pictures from her Bubble Guppy Birthday Party!

June 3, 2012

Week In The Life 2012-Sunday

4:00  Brooklyn up for a bottle.

7:00 We are up and we spend some much needed time cuddling!

8:00 Bath time, breakfast and ready for church!!

 8:30-10:30 Brooklyn has a bottle and goes down for a much needed nap before church! At 10 we leave for church!

10:30-12:00 Time to worship and grow in our faith!  Lesson for the day.... how to be a disciple of Jesus!  One thing that really stuck out to me was.... The only power Satan has, is the power you give him.  Don't let him rob you of the destiny God has for you!

12:30-2:00 We get home, Goober makes some chili for lunch, while I made macaroni salad for a BBQ later!  We eat and them play with Brooklyn!

2:00-5:00 Brooklyn goes down for a nap and Goober and I decide to nap for a bit too!

5:00 We head over to Kyle and Rachel's house for a BBQ! We had a great time and filled up with delicious food!

Yummy!  Pineapple and green onion brats from Hyvee!

Love my Grant man!

Tawnda making silly faces at Malachi!

We took: a family picture to send to church for Brooklyn's dedication ceremony!

Beautiful Ella!

7:30-10:00  We go home do our nightly book, cereal, jammies, bottle, and bed! Then Goober heads back to town to paint the new walls at his store, and I watch s little TV before heading to bed!

"It's the obedience to God, not the knowledge of God, that makes you a mature Christian." -Pastor Mark


Week In The Life 2012-Saturday

5:45  My alarm goes off and I spend some time reading my Bible.

6:00 Brooklyn up for a bottle and I get ready for the day.  
 My yummy breakfast!

7:00 Tawnda and Shawn pick me up to go to an Integrity Seminar for work.

8:15  Brooklyn wakes up and eats breaskfast. (Funny how she sleeps in for daddy!)

9:00  We arrive at Mystic Lake Casino for the Seminar and spend time listening to Keith talk about having a five year plan, and having financial success.  Very interesting and inspiring.

12:00 We break for lunch and head down to the buffet.  The food was delicious and of course I had to have some ice cream!

1:00-6:00  We go back to the conference for CA training and at 4:30 we head home! While I was at the seminar, Goober had to go work with police department, so Kayla (our new babysitter!) came to watch Brooklyn for a few hours!

6:00  When I got home Brooklyn smiled so big at me and made my day! I changed into my jammies, ate some ramen noodles, fed Brooklyn, and found out that Brooklyn will cry when you say WOO HOO!  It was super cute!  Brooklyn has the cutest sad face ever!

 My froggy jammies!

7:00 We play peek-a-boo.  Another of Brooklyn's favorite games!  She laughs so hard when you cover her head and say "Where's Brooklyn?"  Then I tickled her cute little feet!

7:45  We head to Tawnda's house to Skype with Keesha, Chris, Xander. and Molly!  I loved being able to see Molly for the first time not in pictures!  I can't wait until July when they come to visit!  It was also Keesha's first time seeing Brooklyn!

8:30-10:00  We are back home and we put Brooklyn to bed!  Then I update my blog and head to bed because I am exhausted!

Week In The Life 2012-Friday

3:00 Brooklyn gets up for a bottle.

7:00 Up for the day! I read the bible and get ready for the day while Goober makes breakfast!  French toast and scrambled eggs....Mmmmmm! Brooklyn has oatmeal and Dakota begs for food, which is an every meal occurrence!  You would think she was never fed!

8:30  We are dressed and ready to go to mom chat! 

9:00-11:00    Mom Chat!  A bunch of mom's from church get together every 2nd and 4th Friday for adult conversation and for the kids to play!  

 Abi, Ella, and Brooklyn!
Our church Hillside!

 Auntie is so silly putting my monster on my head!  This is the funniest thing ever!

11:00  We head for home and I get stuck behind this SLOOOOW cement truck!  Boo!

12:00-2:30 We eat and play until it is time for Brooklyn's nap!

 This is my water cup which usually goes where I go!  I try to drink at least 4 of these a day!

 What our fridge looks like right now!

2:30-5:00  Brooklyn naps while I do some work!

5:00-7:00  Brooklyn is up and we eat supper. Goober is working late tonight building a wall at his store so it's just Brooklyn and I!  We do some laundry and sweep the floors.

7:00-8:30  Read Books, play, have cereal, bottle, and bedtime!

8:30-10:00  I wash the dishes, play on Pinterest and Facebook and head to bed.  Goober still isn't home, and doesn't show up until 12:00!
