Well, I think that it is safe to say that we are officially potty trained!!! Brantley has done so good with it too! I didn't think that it was going to happen before the baby came, but Brantley has been bugging me for weeks to wear big boy underwear like Cooper and Fischer so I put him in pull ups since I really was not wanting to deal with it. He is still waking up a couple times a night, I don't have a lot of energy and I have procrastinated with getting everything ready for the baby so I have a lot to do. He did pretty good with the pull ups but still asked to wear big boy underwear. Well, I guess I should have just listened to him and put him in them because ever since I did he has done great!!! We had one accident at the babysitters and only one at home in the last four days and the one at home was just a dribble! We have gone several places shopping and such and no accidents out and about. We are so proud of Brantley! It is going to be so nice not having two in diapers at all! Keep up the good work! Doesn't he look so cute in his boxer briefs? I just love it!

Island Park

Will and Brantley being pulled on the sled

Brantley and Will thought that it was so fun to tackle Ryleigh!

All of the kids (Liza, Austin, Will, Brantley and Ryleigh) playing on the bunk beds

This last weekend, we headed up to Island Park with the whole family even Seth and Tiff can up from Arizona! It was a lot of people but great to be with everyone. Brantley had a blast playing with all of his cousins and aunts and uncles. Brantley LOVED! the snowmobiles (what a shock!) even when he ran it into the snow bank! He is so like his dad sometimes it is scary.

Once their was a snowman!

These pictures were from before Christmas and I am just getting around to posting them! I guess better late then never. Justin's mom was talking with Brantley about making a snowman with him ever since it turned cold outside and they had been waiting for it to snow to do it. Well, the first snow storm in Dec Kristen came over and built this snowman with Brantley. The snow was really light and did not want to stick so they were not able to role the snow and build the traditional snowman but Kristen is such a great grandma and wanted to make one with Brantley so this was the result! It looks kind of funny, but Brantley LOVED doing it with her and still is talking about it. And of course they had to sing "Once there was a Snowman" when they were done since it is Brantley's favorite song! It is now completely covered with new snow, but Brantley still looks to see if he can see it every time that we go outside.
