Sam's Special Day

Little Sam was blessed in Church this past Sunday. We were lucky to have so many family members attend because they were in town for the holidays. It was a beautiful day and we were so happy to spend it with so many people we love.

Merry Christmas 2010


We didn't get to sending out Christmas cards this year, so here's our digital apology. Here's hoping that all of you had loved ones near and were able to spend and enjoy the time together, and that each of you enjoyed your Christmas day as much as the four of us did. Merry Christmas to all!

Love the Broadbents

6 weeks

My little tyke is 6 weeks old today! My how time flies. He has chunked up quite a bit in such a short time and is starting to develop the same spitting-up habits his older brother had. He is also honoring us with a few half smiles that just melt my heart. I am so in love with this little boy!

Girl Party

On Saturday we had a girl party. And to make sure no boys would be tempted to bother us, we went to see the Nutcracker. It was Elsie Lou's first time to see a ballet and she was in was my amazing mother who used to dance in the Nutcracker. It was a delightful afternoon and we hope to do it again soon.

Christmas Lights

My whole family was able to go together to see the lights at Temple Square this year. We survived the cold and didn't even lose anyone. I love these cute faces!

Once there was a snowman...

Phil and Wade built their first snowman ever yesterday (first for both of them). Wade named him Frosty. Unfortunately, the dog saw that they used a carrot for his nose and demolished Frosty as soon as Phil and Wade turned their backs. Sorry Frosty, hopefully you can come back to play next year!

Here Comes Santa Claus

When did it become so expensive to have your picture taken with Santa? At least it turned out cute! Wade actually knows who Santa is this year and was so excited to see him. Sam wasn't quite as convinced, but played along anyway.

Ready for Church

Aren't they so handsome!? I sure love these boys.

Monday Night Cookies

Since the Patriots were blowing out the Jets, we decided to make some gingerbread cookies. Wade preferred to eat the m&ms.

Merry Christmas everyone!



Week 3

Mr. Sam has been with us for 3 weeks now, and I can't believe how much he has changed in such a short time. He's already up to 9 pounds but is still a sweet baby. Maybe I'll be lucky and have another good natured little boy (knock on wood).
I have to say that child #2 is MUCH easier than #1. I don't feel like I'm going to break him this time around! DSC02567 copy
(He is definitely starting to look like his big brother)
