Ok so I know this is sooooooooo long over due but what can I say but... no news is good news! Right? We have had a lot going on around here, mostly work but we have had a little fun. To save a little of my time and yours,because I should be shopping. I'm just going to put up pictures and a little blurb with them and then at least y'all know WERE STILL HERE!
I think I'll work backwards and I may jump around a little..... organization smorganizaton!
* This is Allie putting on "decorations" (as she calls them) on the tree. All she wants for Christmas is an easy bake oven, and she is very insistent that Christmas is for Jesus' Birthday. She has become very concerned with how Jesus died. The other day she informed me that "the men that hurt him will not be getting anything from Santa for Christmas!"
* The other picture is of Allie and all her joy school friends with there reindeer hats on. I just thought it was a cute picture. (Kaislee, Kenslie, Karlee, Allie, and Keiton) Try keeping all those names strait.

*Halloween was great! Allie was Cinderella and Tanner was a little skunk. I had a lot of fun doing Allies hair all kinds of ways. I think it got more and more complicated each time, she loved it. Maybe she can be something other than a princess next year!! One can only hope!!!

*Tanner!!! He is getting so big and I am so blessed! Tanner is the best baby, he always has a smile for everyone. He makes my day every morning when I wake up to his happy smiling face! He is now 9 months and into everything!! He is crawling and trying to walk. It goes so fast..... I think I may cry!

*Just a family picture out at Todd's moms house we had some great fall nights this fall and we tried take full advantage of them. Allie had her tonsils out on the first October. That's why she has the bandanna covering her ears in the picture.

*This was at the hospital just after Allies surgery. She had her tonsils and adenoids taken out and tubes put in both ears. She was such a little trouper! She was doing good after the first few days then she ended up with a bad infection in her mouth, it was like starting over. We did how ever make it though. She is like a different kid I would do it again in a heartbeat. She has the funnest personality and makes me laugh every day with the things she comes up with.
*I always thought you had to have kids of the same sex for them to play nice together. But as you can see Allie and Tanner get along just great. I'm amazed at how well they get along ,Tanner just likes to fallow Allie around. Lucky Tanner was the puppy in this picture!
*Well I guess that's about it for now! I have another blog that is not private that I think I may do some posts on. Maybe some about the projects that I want to get done and things like that. Maybe that will help with my motivation to get them done. But I'm not making any promises all keep you posted..... ha ha pun intended. =)

Going Private

I know this may be annoying to some, but it is what it is. I think I will post more when I have a little more control with who is viewing the posts. I really appreciate those of you who have kept up with my family and I and I look forward to sharing more with you. Thanks and please don't hesitate to leave your e-mail and a comment. I really like keeping in touch with everyone and knowing what is going on in your world. Thanks again!!

The only time I can seem to find lately is when Tanner is sleeping, which isn't all that often during the day. I never know what to say when people ask if he's a good baby. I love the little guy but he sure cries a lot. He is getting a little better lately and he sleeps well at night.Thank heaven for that. These are a few pictures we had taken last week they turned out pretty good. We didn't get a ton but at least we were able to get a few. Tanner cried the whole time and wouldn't stay put. So most of the shots are in between cries.
We are blessing Tanner this Saturday. I'm hoping after the blessing things will calm down a little and I won't feel so behind all the time. There is so much I want to do.I have now found ( like most of you know) that it's hard to get much of anything done with two kids. Enjoy the pictures!

Allie.. a.k.a" Miss Muffet"

Tanner.. "The Wanner". He is also called "bubba" around these parts and the occasional "Hank" by Allie.

This was the best family pic we got. It's not my fav but it will have to work. It was late by the time we got to the family ones. Allie was tired and hungry which = crying, the word "no" a lot, and her ears turned off. Todd was also a bit stressed and tired. Hence the grouchy look on his face. I threatened him that if we ever get pictures again he had better make an attempt to look alive. Apparently I'm the only one who can fake a smile in the middle of chaos.
Like when the neighbor stops by to let you know your dogs on the loose, and your 2 year old is in her room screaming because she doesn't want to clean her room. The baby is screaming because he was ripped from his peaceful sleep by a shrieking eel also known as his sister. Dinners burning and laundry is cold and wrinkly. You just smile, and try not to let on that you really want to run out the house screaming. Yes! I would say I have had some PRACTICE!! HA HA ... just thought I would make you smile. We've all been there, I really am doing good! If it is one of those days just remember tomorrow is another day (WINK).

Tanner Warren Brewington

Tanner was born:
March 15th 2010
Weight: 7lb 10oz
Length: 20in

The delivery went really well! I went in to the hospital and was started in the morning. We waited and waited and he was finally born at 5:10 pm. Things went really well but I must say I definitely noticed the 2 lb difference.

Tanner has been so much fun to finally have here! It's amazing how much love you can have for
someone so small!

Allie has been so good with Tanner she loves him so much. She is a great big sister and helper.She plays the little mommy roll quite well! Allie still calls him Hank every now and then and I love when he sneezes she always says "oh bless you Tanner!!" It's just funny how excited she gets and the way she says it cracks me up.

The family pic after tuned out pretty good! Allie found the b-day hat in some stuff down stairs while playing with grandma and insisted on wearing it. When she came in the room the first thing she said was" happy birthday Hank!!" My mom came and took care of Allie while we were at the hospital and then stayed another week just to help out. I have the best mom ever!! We tried our best to talk her into staying permanently, but to no avail.

No Longer Homeless

The Front.... The living room

The kitchen
So we are finally here! We moved into the house around the 1st of March!!! It was really hard being so prego and having to let everyone do EVERYTHING for you. It's not that I didn't want to help but every time my index finger twitched i heard "don't touch that I'll get it"! So i think things turned out pretty good,there are a few things we will change the next go around but, for our first time on our own I think we did alright! We lived with Todd's mom for the 5 months that it took to build. She was so nice to let us stay with her. But.... by the end of 5 months I was definitely DONE!! I really needed my own space!!

Master bath

Tanners room..... Allies room

So there is a lot not done but I'm working on it! Allie and Tanners rooms , the laundry room, the salon, and there is no furniture in the basement living room. I guess I have the time and space I so wanted to work on all that stuff. Next thing you know I'll be complaining about the endless amount of work. Oh well!!
If you want to stop by feel free!! With the weather and the baby were almost always here =)

Homeless and Pregnent

Yes that's what I said. Homeless and Pregnant!!!! (18 weeks I think!)I know I'm bad sorry I don't really keep track. I haven't done a post in fffooorreevveeerr. But I really do have a good reason. Back in July we sold our house and had to be out by the first. I was planing on doing this post before we moved, but as most of you know there is never enough time. While trying to get the packing done I got sick(not pregnancy related) and had a hard time keeping up. Needless to say I didn't get to the blog. Sorry!! N E way we looked around for a little while and decided to build. You may be asking what does any of this have to do with not being able to blog. Well..... we moved in with Todds mom whom lives in Firth. It's wonderful however... it's a little like living in the stone age. We've called around and can't get the Internet out there, so I'm blogging via my moms in Utah. We have decided to get one of those mobile hot spots, so I'll get all caught up soon. I have a lot of fun pictures from the farm, Allie is in heaven. The house is going fast and I'm hopping it will stay that way! The pregnancy well.... it's going! Just like they always do! Just plugging along. We find out the sex on the 4th so I'll try to keep everyone up to date. Love you all!!!

The What? of July

I know were pushing the end of July, but I also know I'm not the last one to post about the 4th so.... Whatever It's on the "to do" list (check)

We had a great holiday Allie loves all the people, fireworks and running around crazy. She thinks it's great fun so.....

We started off the weekend a little early and headed up to the Rexburg splash park(or as I now call it the soak park). Rexburg defiantly does not have a problem with there water pressure,and it's freezing! The girls had fun, but as you can see Allie really didn't get all that wet. Slapping the water was about it.

I did try to get her to go down one of the water slides. It was to no avail she stood at the top of the stairs and cried, so I had to go rescue her. That is why I call it the "soak park". I stepped one foot on to that thing and I was drenched.

We were all exhausted and it wasn't even the 4th yet.

We started off the day at the parade with friends and then headed to a another friends house for food ,fun, and games. It was so much fun but by late afternoon I really couldn't keep my eyes open. So we headed home for a little snooze.

Later we hopped the fence to the bishops house to watch some fireworks! It's so nice, our bishop does some pretty good fireworks and invites the ward. When it starts to get a little too late we just take Allie home and we can still watch from our back porch. You gotta love convenience.

So this next picture is a little weird. We have early church so I headed home with Allie and decided if we were going to make it to church the next day we better get the shower out of the way. Allie got two glow sticks at the party and when it was time to get in the shower didn't want to give them up. I figured what the heck pick your battles. I turned out the lights and left the door cracked so we could see. She had a blast and thought it was so much fun. Then while drying off I hear... uh, oh, mommy! I looked down to see the drain glowing. Ha! to funny I had to take a picture. Allies response when I asked her what we were going to do?.........

"daddy fix it.... DADDY!"
