We have been enjoying our time off together with the rest of the Bird Family. Kim & Alan rented a house for us all to stay together in. Brighton has been learning to share his toys with Cousin Tanner as they always seem to want the same toy. We had a wonderful Christmas and are so grateful for this time of year.

Not only does Brighton look just like his daddy he loves all the things his daddy loves...CARS is large on the list. Last year for Christmas my parents got Brighton a push car and he has played with it pretty much everyday since the day he opened it. This year they got him an electric one. My dad charged it before it was wrapped so as soon as Brighton opened the car he was able to hop on and go. He had to get the hang of pushing the button instead of using his feet. The first night he would only push it for a second at a time so he kinda jerked around. Now he holds it down and goes all around the house. Both days he's had it he has worn the battery down.

Amy couldn't decide to put Amy and Woody since someday they will be MOM and Dad but for now she thought Amy and Woody fit best. We really struggled with the puffy paint; it stinks that the last part can really mess up your stocking and there is no going back but we did pretty well after a few bloopers.

I had to include this one because he's just too dang cute! Brighton loves to wear hats lately and actually keeps them on. We're still looking for a super cute beanie for the cold weather coming up.

The whole fam went Trick or Treating at the mall. We got there a little late so only a few stores had candy left.
Here are the little cuties Trick or Treating in the neighborhood. They were very cold but didn't mind one bit as long as people kept putting candy in their buckets. I think this will always be their favorite holiday.

I can't believe my little man is so old! How fast time flies! Brighton always gets the same comment. "He looks like such a little man!" and I couldn't agree more. I feel like this kid just came out of me looking all grown up. His personality is definitely starting to shine through and he is going to be a stubborn one who always wants his way. He can easily copy all the words that come out of our mouths now but he has picked up two that he just loves "Don't" and "Stop it" Oh man. Brighton's main goal in life is just like his daddy's...To always have fun. He loves cars and four wheelers. Him and Chris take daily rides on his Can am. My mom bought Chris a remote control car. Brighton sits on the kitchen floor controlling it many times a day. He gives the best hugs and kisses and is such a little sweetheart. He seems to know when he is tired and does not fight being put down for his nap or bed time. He loves to read books. If reading by himself he will make up words as he looks at the pages. He no longer needs his bottle, thanks mom!!! and has gotten so much better at eating. He even will ask for food. His favorites are apples and bananas, chicken, noodles, and chips. Brighton has decided that he does not need his booster seat anymore and likes to stand on the chair as he eats. He is always on the go, always wanting to be outside and doing something. He loves to throw balls and push things around the house. He enjoys playing with other kids, or adults. As long as he gets attention. He continues to love animals and will bark at all the dogs he sees. I hope that I will be able to nurture his fun loving personality and keep up with his busy little life. I know Brighton will be the best big brother to all his siblings. He loves every baby he sees; kisses them and tickles their feet. He is constantly looking at our baby book to see pictures of the baby. We are so blessed to have Brighton in our lives!!

We are so excited for Stephen and Lisa. The wedding day turned out perfect after much concern over the weather. Brighton loved every minute of the day, running around in his cute little suit and entertaining all. He was the first to run up to Stephen and lIsa when they came out of the temple; he knew there was something special about this day for them. He loved to sit on the photo stairs, eat his pretzels, and get his picture taken. It is always wonderful to attend a wedding and remember my vows to my amazing husband. I am so grateful for the temple and the ordinances taken place there!
