Happy Birthday Broder

Brody loves Transformers, Power Rangers, Big Wheels, Legos, swimming, movies, Friday nights (he gets to stay up late), preschool, playing with friends, his cousin Dani, chalking the sidewalk, anything sweet, battling with his brother, coloring with Kenley, hugging on Embry, the list could go on forever. He's such a happy kid.

5 Things we love about Brody
1. His smile (he's always wearing it)
2. His sense of humor
3. His hugs, he loves to cuddle
4. The fact that he insists on wearing long sleeves and pants in 120 degree weather
5. His tender heart

Brody's had an exciting weekend. First Halloween, then his birthday and then a party at G&G Johnson's. What a lucky boy. We woke up Saturday morning and had breakfast and then on to presents. Brody was so excited he could hardly stand it. Usually in our family we open some in the morning at breakfast and save the rest for the evening. Not Brody, he wanted them all. His favorite was his Big Wheel, he loves how fast it makes him go.
Brody found this bumble bee hive in a magazine and just had to have it. He talked about it for days and when friends would come to play he would say "man it sure would be fun if I had the beehive to play with my friends". The bees have numbers on them so you can count them as you put them in the hive.

Kenley made this card and I thought it was so sweet I had to capture it forever.

This year was a year to have a date night with mom and dad. We did all things Brody wanted to do. First we ate at Outback (like father like son). Outside he wanted daddy to help him be Iron Man. Brody always gets the macaroni, which is funny to me cause he could have that at home. We played a game of dots and he won! We also discovered that Outback tables are great for reflection pictures.

Then we went to Toys R Us and he got to pick out a toy. He was stuck between a Power Ranger and a Transformer but ended up getting the Transformer.
Then off to Cold Stone (the ice cream store) where he chose cotton candy plain.

Last stop Blockbuster (the movie store) to get Brody's picks.

It's all about the Power Rangers!

On Sunday Brody got a cake made by Aunt Kirsi (she's amazing) and presents from all the family. Thanks guys!

I can't believe that Brody is five. How does the time go by so quickly. It seems like just a couple of Halloweens ago that you were walking around our neighborhood in labor with him. What awesome parents you are. That is my kind of a date. Brody knows how to plan a good one.

Happy Birthday Brody Dane! You are the cutest kid EVER! I love all the pictures and I love that you had one on one time with your mom and dad! It makes me sad I missed your birthday but I got to see what a great time you had through all the great pictures. You are a great kid and such a big 5 year old now. Next year you will be walking to the bus stop with Brock and Kenley. How fun! Nannie and Grandpa want you to know how much we love you and how proud we are of you. You are one awesome big boy! Happy Birthday Brodster!

It really looks like you guys are cherishing every minute with your family. You are such good parents, spending quality time with your kids. Our Rilees birthday was on the second also. New ballgame though, 15 years old, just wants clothes, money,and concert tickets. Power rangers and toys sound great to me! Love your blog. Robin Warner
