Big Red turns 1

Okay, he really turned one a month ago, but I finally made a trip down to my sisters to have her snap some cute pictures of him. I love all these pictures, they totally capture his smiley personality.

Big Red (no longer baby chub chub, due to Erics request) has been such an asset to our family. I can't imagine our life without him. His older brothers just look forward to seeing him every morning.

Brody is starting to walk. He started taking a couple of steps about a month ago. He walks pretty well now, but he still crawls when he wants to get somewhere in a hurry.

He says a couple words. Da Da , of course. Duck, (weird I know), but we throw a duck for Diogo and Brody loves to watch and always chanting (Guck, Guck, Guck) He tries to say all done and where did it go?

We love you Brody and are so happy you are a part of our family!!!

A great way to start the Holiday Season....

This weekend was a lot of fun and the perfect way to spend the Holiday Season. First,our family went up to a cabin at the bottom of Mt. Rainer with some good friends of ours the Flamm family. It was a lot of fun, playing games, drinking hot chocolate, roasting hotdogs and smores over the fire, watching the snow come down, and playing in the snow and having snow ball fights. It was so much fun.

Who needs to roast hot dogs. I like mine raw. (Yuck)

When we got back from our little Cabin in the mountains adventure we went straight to our good friends the Godbolts house for the Camelot Crew's annual "Food, Fall and Fun get together. These are friends that we made as Tommy started Camelot. I love Camelot because everyone is so close and we have made some of our best friends through Camelot. Here are some pics:

Tommy's Baptism

Saturday Oct. 31st was a very special day for Tommy. Tommy was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Tommy has been so excited for this day for quite some time now. He has a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. He wants to share his beliefs with everyone because they make him so happy. He is such a good example to me.

Tommy is soooo loved! He had 62 people at his baptism who came to share his special day with him. Thanks to all that came and made him feel so loved and special.

What a handsome Kid!!

Dressed in white with his dad.

Proud mom and Dad.

Posing with the whole family. (One good looking family if I do say so myself)

Taking a picture with his grandparents that mean the world to Tommy!!

His best Cousins Ethan and Audrey ( If only Jackson and Audrey Walter could have been there)

Tommy's good friend DJ. (Tommy was so surprised and excited to see DJ, a friend he hasn't seen in almost a year)

Camelot Pals ( Dade and Jared)

Than that night, when he went out to go trick or treating, he started feeling sick and got a temprature (we even thought it might be swine flu, but it only lasted one day) What a sad way to end such a special day :(

I love you Tommy and am so proud of you!!
