Brown family reunion 2016



It's time to get back to blogging...mostly because this is how I have kept up in my babies. I have never once gotten a baby book, but I have done a blog post about every month for their first month and I plan to get them put in books, so here I go again! Tate can't be left out!

Lucky for you I have some pictures that need to be published from forever ago so here is a little catch up!
 
The Brown reunion is always a favorite around here. The only bummer is that is it one of the weekends that Mark has to work so we are always flying solo. Last year I took the kids up and camped with them and they loved it! They want to camp again this year, but I don't know if I'm up for the challenge with a baby.

The first day we were there Branson was was playing in our van so I told him to get out and he did and locked the doors with the keys in it. I had every set of keys in my purse locked in the van!
Luckily I have awesome uncles and cousins that enjoyed the challenge of trying to get my car unlocked.!it took them hours but in the end they one and I got back in my van!

All 7 of us

My little sister Sydney went through the temple in November. It was the first time that all 7 of us siblings were in the temple together!! 

I sure love this family of mine and that we can all be in the temple together!! I think I will keep them for eternity 😊. 


We are such a cute family 😊

Sometimes it is crazy having 5 sisters but I love it as well! They are all my best friends and we gained an awesome sister  when my brother married Esther!! There is never a dull moment when we are together 

Primary program 2015

This little girl just makes me happy!! 

She loves primary and is such a great little singer! She always knows all the songs and said her whole part by herself!! 

I have to say it was nice to just watch this year and not be worried about the music!! 

Mom and daughter date

In December the place where Gray takes dance classes did a production of the nutcracker!

I got us tickets and we headed out for a night just the two of us. Gray was a little excited to say the least. 

We went and let her pick out presents for her brother and sister, had dinner together, and watched the show!! 

They did a great job and she loved when she was her teachers out there dancing! 

We love you Grandpa Ray

In June my grandpa and on my mom's side passed away. In November we were able to go to his memorial. 

It was great to remember my grandpa and all the fun memories I have with him. At the end the great grandkids sent off balloons for him!! 

They also got a McDonald giftcard which my grandparents always give to the kids at Christmas time! 

We are continually glad that we are back in Arizona and can be here for things like this! 

Blessings

This family of mine is my greatest blessing! I love being a wife and a mom and I love all the silly moments we have together! Who else loves me for just being ridiculous? 

 
So handsome on his first day of primary!! 








Fire station open house

Way back in September or October one of the fire stations had an open house! 

This was Branson's dream come true! The kids all had fun sitting in the trucks, getting free stuff, and just playing!! 

We are definitely going back next time 😊

Blair just loves to run around and be crazy 


Who doesn't love a bouncy house? 


Branson looked so cute with his hat backwards! He did not love the mole trailer though and lasted about 1 minute! 

Every one loved their hats and we got months of use out of them!! Sadly they are all broken now.
