We had a great summer. One of our highlights this summer was our special visitor. Uncle Jeff came for a week. It was a special time and the kids LOVED having their Uncle Jeff. After an awesome week we camped in Northern California with Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Cristy and Uncle David. It was beautiful, hot, and mosquito and bee infested. But we had a fabulous time. We sure love to camp. And summer is just the best. It was hard to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall, but alas it is time.
Adam and I were married for time and all eternity August 11, 2005. We love life and love this crazy little adventure of raising a family!
Our little boy
Collin is a fun, silly, lovable five year-old. He has a contagious laugh and brings so much joy to our family.
Our sweet girl
Marissa is our little sweet and sassy little 3 year old.
Our sweet baby
Trevor is our precious little blue-eyed baby. He is sweet and easy going and we all adore him.
Collin the shots, This months best Collinisms
Tonight during prayers Collin prayed to please bless that the baby will kick soon. And then he later said in the prayer and please bless the baby to be happy and eat his dinner and breakfast. so cute! Think he's excited.
Collin and Marissa were in the back of the car arguing saying "mine", "mine", "mine", back and forth. FInally Collin stops and says, "Marissa what are we talking about". ha ha that's what I want to know. They're already fighting over nothing.
While singing bedtime songs, I asked Collin what song he wanted. He said, "the one about Jesus as a baby and the gingerbread man house." I could not figure it out and he kept holding fast to the gingerbread man. Finally I figured it out, it was Away in a Manger. ha ha
At the grocery store Collin saw brown eggs, very excited he said, "look Mom, chocolate eggs!" He was disappointed when I told him the truth.
Collin found an ant in our house during quiet time. He decided to bring it into his room and let him "play". He called him little ant. He was so disappointed when he disappeared. He told me, "little ant is really good at hiding" as we searched for him.
Today I was telling Collin something was hard and I wasn't sure if I could do it. He said, "Mom, I know you can do it, cause you have power in your mind." LOVE IT! I think he's my best cheerleader
Collin and I were talking about his full name. He has a hard time grasping his middle name and last name. He finally got it. I told him Daddy's full name and he then told me mine: Mommy Michael Brandt. ha ha, I had a great laugh with that!
