Braylee's Birthday was on May 10th, and I can't believe she is five! She is such a sweet addition to our family. She is almost done with preschool and on to bigger things as a Kindergartner. Some of her favortie things to do include: playing dress ups with her friends, preschool and miss Cynthia, anything princess, movies, chalk, & most the time Tyson! She is on the 60% for height and 54% for her weight, and she was so brave when she got her last 4 shots! She loves to learn and although she does love candy she is constantly asking me which foods are healthy and which ones are not. She had the never ending birthday this year. We opened presents on her birthday and went to Build-A-Bear to pick out a new out fit for her bear. Then we had the family over for cake, ice cream and more presents. Then on the weekend of the 21st we had a birthday party with her friends. It was a month of Birthday surprises and boy did she get spoiled!
I'm not used to this new uploading process so all my picture are backwards, but you get the idea! We had such a great Easter. These are pictures at my parents house. They went all out this year! The grand kids had their own egg hunt in the living room and there was one golden egg, which the winner of got to turn in for a prize. Of course Braylee didn't have much competition with the two little boys that didn't really know what was going on! She was ecstatic when she found it! Notice Grandpa's fore head in the picture above...Braylee got a Easter egg full of fairy tattoos from Grandma Trudy and by the end of night everyone had several tattoos on:)
This is the prize she got for the Golden Egg.
This is her right after she found it. I should have taken a picture of the boys Easter baskets. They both got a Minky blanket (which we are totally obsessed with lately, and if you haven't felt one before...it is a must!), and also a basket full of goodies. Braylee also got a basket full of goodies from Grandma Stephie. They also did an adult Easter egg hunt which there are no pictures of because I was participating in this extreme hunt. There was $250 in 63 eggs! We each got to find 9 eggs that were taped shut so we could cheat and put it back if it only had $1 bill in it:) We ended up with about 60 bucks! Thanks MOM and DAD we had a great time. We love you!!!
Easter Morning at our House
Braylee woke up at about 7 and we had wake Tyson up. The Easter bunny definitely found us this year. There were eggs everywhere! The Easter bunny hides the kids baskets. Braylee found Tyson's right away, and Tyson couldn't have been less interested. He knew there was candy in the eggs so he found a couple, sat on the floor, and dug right in!
Braylee got "Tangled" & Tyson got "Cars"
Ward Easter Egg Hunt
Since I am in the primary presidency I had to help with the ward Easter Egg hunt, which turned out great! We hid 1,066 eggs!!(Well, sprinkled on the grass cause we were totally out of places to hide them:)
Tyson has been a crappy sleeper from day 1. Recently he has been making us rock him to sleep or lay on the floor until he is asleep, which is no small amount of time. So, we decided to take the front off his crib and see if it made a difference. Tyson is just like his dad. He loves for fix things. He followed Sky around the whole time trying to figure out how to "fix" the crib!
I'm about a month late in posting these pictures but here they are anyway! Tyson is 2! I really have no idea where the last 2 years went. I swear I was just pregnant with him. He is such a sweet addition to our little family. I wish you could all hear him talk. It is so sweet, I just want to eat him up:)
First we opened presents at our house after Dad got home from work. I think big sister enjoyed his new toys a little too much.
Then we went to the Bountiful Rec. Center for cupcakes, more presents and swimming.
He loves to blow out (or attempt to blow out) candles!
This was his last present. He couldn't take all the attention and excitement anymore, so he hid behind his new toy and wouldn't look at anyone!
He loved the swimming part of the evening.
Home at last to play with all his new toys.
I think he would keep Braylee's kitty if she would let him:)
