Okay, so I know my blog has been sucky poo-poo lately-sorry. I will try to be much more interesting and get back to posting some pictures. Well, Christmas went great. Brynn enjoyed playing with the trash and boxes..umm...I mean opening all her neat presents!! We were severely worn out by yesterday.
STORY #1: My dad has been working with Brynn since birth (seriously) on saying 'papa'. So we were at Justin's parents this weekend and out of the blue she looks at his dad and says...of course..'papa.' We all said hooray and clapped but then realized that we were going to have to tell my dad about this. We get home and tell my dad (I could tell he was crushed, but he was nice about it). We try and try to get Brynn to say it to him and of course all she would do is look at him and say 'bye.' VERY heartbreaking. At church on Christmas (mind you we have been trying for a full 24 hours to get her to say it) my dad walks up and says hi to us and then goes off to visit. After he leaves, what does my sweet child say?? 'PAPA' of course when he can't hear it!!!! So, to this day he has not heard her say it. What a little toot she is!
This is her opening her stocking.
STORY #4: Brynn got A LOT of stuff, but one thing particular that we really thought was cool was this CD that her Godmother (my best friend) Erin sent her from Colorado. It is a personalized Veggie Tales CD!! It says her name over 80 times in it! She loves to hear the songs, but when they say her name she looks all around the room and can't figure out where it is coming from!!! What a nerd!
STORY #3: We have started our minivan shopping adventure. Now, I know some of you are thinking minivan?? why not a SUV? Well, I shall tell you. We will have a 17 month old and a newborn...2 carseats! I want to be able to click my button, have my doors open for me, and throw them right on in. Not crawl up into anything difficult. So, we shopped ALL day yesterday. We found out that we are going to be a little (actually a lot) upside down on our trade so we are weighing our options. We REALLY love the 2006 Nissan Quest (ingore the red leather), but we are going to have to wait until all the numbers fall into the right place. Yuck-I was wanting to have it before our ski trip next week. Keep you fingers crossed for us!
