Busy B

Just one of the many nicknames she has. She is into everything these days. She likes to look "so pretty" wearing her mommy's mascara. One of her favortie things to do is go through my makeup. No matter what it is, it will either go on her face or in her hair.

And loves to help out with the dishes. It is more fun to take things out, than to put them in.

Brooklyn sometimes sneaks her way into the bathroom at grandma's house and finds ways to make messes.

New Year's Bash

New Year's Eve we went to celebrate at Stein Eriksen Lodge and started the night with some dinner. Half way through dinner I felt a strange sensation like nothing I have ever experienced. My throat and and tongue started to swell. I took some benadryl and went on with the night but knew I had some sort of allergy to something I ate. The majority of the meal was seafood (which I love!!). Trevor and Amanda missed it because they were at a cousin's wedding in Texas.

Just the two of us....Brooklyn was in the room with a babysitter while we ate.

We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing!! I loved just lounging around, eating lots of food, hot tubbing, and playing with Brooklyn and Baylor. 

After we got home, I went to an allergist during the week and got tested for food allergies. On a scale of 0 to 5, I have a shellfish allergy of 5. The majority of people with this have an adult onset allergy. On a random day your body will have a reaction to it and thereafter. Now everytime I am exposed, the reaction will get worse. The doctor prescribed me an epi pen that I am suppose to carry around with me just in case. NO MORE SEAFOOD FOR ME :(

Merry Christmas

Christmas morning we awoke to find that Santa did stop by our house. I am not quite sure how he got in, since we don't have a chimney:)
Santa brought our princess her play castle and she loved it! First thing Brooklyn did when she got downstairs, was run inside. It is actually pretty tall (5'4") with plenty of room for all of her toys.
She loved to tear the wrapping paper and she helped Brian and I open our gifts as well. These are some of the things Brooklyn got for Christmas at our house: a band with a drum, xylophone, and piano. Also, she recieved a Jessie doll, books, clothes, and a play mat.
Bluray surround sound came for Brian,
and a sewing machine for me.
At Brian's parents house Santa brought us lots of Jazz gear including jerseys, tee shirts, short, etc.
And some very cute clothes :)
Last minute, we got a suprise iPad along with Russ and Kristen. Brian has not put it down since!!
The little miss got some more toys and a princess car to match her play tent.
This car track entertained Baylor and Brooklyn for quite sometime. This is a gift for the two of them that stays at Grandma and Grandpa's house. 
Christmas dinner was held at my sister's house this year. This is the first christmas that she has lived in Utah in 13 years. My brother-in-law knows how to entertain!! They use to own a catering and decorating business in Colorado.
After dinner we played a few games.
My Mom and the little B in matching outfits.
This was my parents first Christmas at their new house. There is plenty of room for decorations. My Mom had me take some pictures for her so she can remember all of the decorations for next year. They had 5 trees!!
This one has all of the ornaments we made my mom in elementary school, it so fun that she kept this stuff.
Can you say nutcrackers?!
A village
and my Dad's train!!

This is just the tip of the iceberg. He has enough train supplies to fill up almost the entire 13000 square foot house but he only put up a small one this year. Maybe next year we will get to see more of it. They actually had an entire room built just to hold his collection!
It was so exciting to see Christmas this year through Brooklyn's eyes. I am sure we will have even more exciting moments in years to come. She will just have to wait until next year to dance to the singing Santa.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!!
