Whats been going on?

Well I was going to post an update about what has been happening with the Reads but not much is really going on right now. Brandon is still working hard as always and can't wait to get out and start golfing and for March Madness to start (both are not too far away)! I am just loving being a mom there's nothing more rewarding than to watch your kids learn and grow! Ashlyn is still the boss and was able to participate in a dance clinic again. She did so good until her bow fell out then spent the rest of the song trying to fix her hair, it was so cute! She is such a great big sister, loves to do arts and crafts, dressing up as a princess or a cheerleader is daily, and has a WILD imagination! Brooklyn just turned 8 months last week and is growing like crazy. She is steam-rolling to get from one place to another, giggles at everything, now has enough hair for a tiny ponytail, and is pulling herself up on not too much long until she is running with Ashlyn! Well we are all happy and healthy and loving life!

Our 5 Year Anniversary!

On January 24th we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. I can't believe its has been 5 years, I feel like I have known Brandon forever but at the same time it seems like yesterday that we got married. I just feel so lucky to have Brandon as my husband, a father to our girls, and my best friend. I can't even think of how life would be without him, he always knows what I need or ways to help me. He is constantly making me smile and laugh brightening each and every day. I absolutely love watching him with our girls! He is such an awesome father and provider of our family! I know that we were meant to be I have always said he is my prince charming and he surely is! (Even though he does get to play prince charming now with Ashlyn as Sleeping Beauty and he as the prince) I just want him to know that I love him so much and am so thankful for all he stands for and for all he does!

So for our anniversary we went to Barbacoa, which was very good! However there was a near death experience with some meat getting stuck, me not knowing the hymlic, and Brandon choking and puking numerous times at the table! After two trips to the bathroom making himself throw up and then FINALLY the meat coming dislodged, Brandon returned to the table a little frazzled and tired but ready to finish his delicious meal! After it was all done and over we were laughing about it and then enjoyed the rest of the evening with each other. It was so nice to have good quality alone time with Brandon. It was wonderful night! I love you Hunny! xoxo
