Today has been pretty normal. Alex went to work at noon and then the kids all went down for their naps. When they got up I was just being lazy while they were watching a movie and playing. I had shut my eyes for just a few mins. and then Brodie woke me up and said he needed to go potty (he was running around with no diaper) I said ok then sit on your toilet, well then he brings his little Brodie toilet into the living room sat on it and then I heard it......he went!! He was so excited.
So all day without me saying a word he will sit down when he needs to go then tell me "look look" and I check and sure enough there is pee there! People tried to tell me to try sooner then before he was three, but mommy knows best and he is doing it all by himself. I made some cookies and I always let them lick the spoon or the beaters.
Now we are just wasting time til dad gets home.

Since I last blogged Brodie had his third bithday. We did a small party here at our house then one with family. Brodie loved his cake and was so excited to eat it. Then on Friday we went to the zoo for some fun before his other party at Nana and Papa's.
Brodie was very excited as you can tell, but Conner was not. While we were there they had a fire truck there to spray water.
Brodie got right into the fun of it and ran all over. Brodie and Conner both ran and ran.
It was so fun to watch them. While at the party for Brodie at Nana and Papa's he got to eat more cake. We gave some to Conner and well, he's such a mess. Little Lexie got to eat a cheese stick, .she didn't mind. Then Brodie got his present from Nana and Papa.

Last night as I was sitting on the computer trying to use up time before Alex got home, I was reading old posts from NieNie's blog. It really touched me and made me feel a lot of differnet things. I started to feel that I had no reason to complain about my small imperfection on my face or any other "poor me" things. That, I need to be a better wife and mother, and to play, laugh, and love more. I also felt so strongly again that Heavenly Father knows and takes care of all things. I know that from watching my own life, and even though we've had rough times Heavenly Father was always there to guide and help us feel loved. I have three beautiful children that are healthy and a great husband that loves me. We have had many different trials in our lives but I have to remember that those are what make us who we are and they make us stronger. I just want to end by bearing my testimony, I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one and only true church, I know that we all are here for a purpose and that we should life our lives preparing to return to Heavenly Father and to be more like him and Jesus Christ, I know that prayer does work and that through faith almost anything is posssible, I am grateful for the power of the Preisthood for the blessings we can recieve through them and faith. I love my family and I am grateful to be a mother and wife. Live your life to the fullest and most rigtheous becuz as fast as we can blink it can all be gone.

Today Alex has to close which means it will be a long day here at home. He was off yesterday so we went and got some things done and just had a lazy family day. Today I got the house cleaned back up, when Alex is home I don't want to spend my time cleaning so when he goes back to work the next day I have to get the house back to normal. The kids are all napping and I'm blogging, then what?!

Today Alex gets off early and it seems like those are the longest days for me. Why is it when you actually want the time to fly by it doesn't? Oh well I have a fun thing for me time tonight. Jehn is having a Sentsy party, so that will be fun! This blogging thing is actually kind of nice. Alex was teasing me about it though, cuz I said I would never have one, and here I am blogging lol. Well, I look at it as a more fun way of journaling.
Brodie's First Cart
Brodie is our very smart and fun almost three year old. We went to Dillon's for some groceries and thought it would be fun to let Brodie have his own little cart. Thinking he would need help, because he is only almost three, I held on to the front of his little cart. Well, he didn't want me to do that so he moved my hand off and away he went. He followed behind Alex and I walked beside Brodie. He was so funny, he looked like he had been pushing a cart for years. We would need to turn around to go back the opposite way and he would just flip his cart around like it was old news. He is always surprising us with how smart he is. I love this little boy and I am excited to watch him grow. Don't mind his little nose, he was playing with Daddy and found the door frame with his nose :(
