New Years Eve Day

Last day of the Year we spent at Tigertail beach on Marco Island.

We finished the day on the beach watching fireworks off the Pier. This year has been one of many moves. We started in Ann Arbor and finished our first year Law School, spent a very educational summer in D.C while Art interned at the Patent office. Welcomed the newest member of our family in August, Eva Lynn Brown. Then moved to Florida to start our second year Law School. It as been a great year for the Brown Family!

Hiking the Everglades

We hiked the Florida Trail but didn't get to far because it was all under water. It is truly swamp lands.

Christmas 2009

We had a quiet just us Christmas this year.

Acting out the nativity,
Christmas morning,

Traditional cinnamon rolls,

Christmas doll Eva,
And of course we could not miss out on going to the Beach. Art went for his Christmas swim, his new tradition.

Train Museum Park

We visited the Train Museum Park and the boys were in Train Heaven. They are so obsessed with trains, still. It has been like 3 years.
It is a great park, they have a train play structure, an Huge train artifact, train rides and a train museum.

The Bouncer

All of my kids have spent many hours in this bouncer! They love it. Eva is no exception! She is a little small yet but you can see she loves it.

Barefoot Beach

Here we are at Barefoot Beach, one of our favorites. After a storm is the best time, you can find so many shells and treasures.

Christmas time is Here

The boys got to decorate gingerbread men at the primary activity, and
we got our tree, right after a day at the beach. We are getting more and more ready for Christmas in Florida.

Christmas Festivities

Wow- It is only the first week of December and we have already gone to three Christmas events. So fun. First was down town Naples Christmas Parade. They have snow bubbles pouring out of the lights.
Then the school had a Christmas Party with lots of fun lights and music. And we had to attend the Naples Snow Fest where they make mounds of snow for the kids to play on. I love this season!

Five Years Ago

Five years ago, on a sunny but windy California winter morning I married the man of my dreams in the Oakland Temple for time and all eternity. It really was the best day of my life. So happy and perfect. It is hard to believe that Five years as past us by. During that time we have moved 5 times, had 3 kids, graduated college and are now half way through law school. We are blessed.

Happy Anniversary

Baby Legs

I love them. I just made these for Eva and they are my favorite thing. They are warm and cozy and cute. If anyone wants one just send me a pair of socks and I will make you some. Or you can look up how to make them. So easy and cute.

We had the best Thanksgiving with Angie and Ajay and the Whittemores. We had a super yummy dinner then hit the beach. Art went surfing and I stayed on the beach with the kiddos. Angie and Ajay also took us to the springs. It was beautiful and warmer. Art got a little snorkeling injury. He doesn't know his own swim strength.
