Merry Christmas

Robert, Payton, Zack, and I will be traveling between Idaho and Utah for the next few weeks visiting family over the holidays. We get to be with both our families a lot and love every minute of it. Who would of known that our 12 best friends in the whole world would be our parents and siblings??? We are so grateful for each and every one of them and love them all sooooooooooo much. Thank you Mom and Dad, Mom and Dad Brown, Tom and Audrie, Mandie and Conrad, Ben and Sherrie, and Stu and Melinda for all being YOU!!! You guys truly are our best friends ever!

Monday is OVER!!!

Monday night was Robert's work party. Me and my sister-in-law put it together. Let's just say that after days of shopping for it, decorating for it, planning for it, and cooking for it, I am soooooooooooooo glad that Monday has come and gone!!!

It's amazing to me to think that Robert and his brother started their new Real Estate company in January and hoped to have 10 agents working for them by the end of the year. The year still isn't over yet and they have 32 GREAT agents and an awesome secretary and a beautiful office! We have been so blessed this year and I am so grateful for Robert and the amazing person that he is.

We had my super cute parents come as special guests and they did so good. I want to thank them so much for their time they gave us and I want them to know we appreciated all they put into it. They just got themselves a job for the next years to come.

While I was being a host I neglected Payton and this is how I found him.

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

I've been tagged to name the top ten reasons of what I love about my children.

I LOVE hearing Payton say his prayers. It sounds gibberish but occasionally we hear a word or two. Especially if we pray to say thanks for his toys and his CARS!!!

I LOVE that Zack slept until 4 am this morning. (the night before he was awake from 11pm-8am, no lie, no tiny, AWAKE) But the Lord knows how much we can handle and that is why I love that he slept a lot last night!

I LOVE how much Payton is in love with his dad. It used to annoy me that he would ALWAYS choose Robert over me, but I've grown to absolutely love how excited Payton is to see his dad.

I LOVE that Payton is starting to get addicted to tv and movies. (what is she thinking) seriously? Yes, I love that he can give his attention to something else other than me or Robert 24/7. And, I don't have to entertain him if Diego or Tigger can.

I LOVE that at night Zack will scream forever until I go up to him and kiss him and he instantly falls asleep by my kiss. The screaming I hate, but to know that he just needed a kiss from mom...I LOVE.

I LOVE when Payton is screaming and crying and all I say is "Do you want chocolate milk" he will stop crying to say "K" then continue screaming. It is so cute to watch him stop crying to squeeze out the word "K" meaning yes. (I don't give him the chocolate milk until his is done crying...most the time)

I LOVE how when we say it's bedtime, Payton grabs his binki, blanki, and sippy and crawls up in his bed and lays down and folds his arms.

I LOVE that after every pray he throws his arms up after we say amen, and then he puckers up for a kiss. (Robert kisses me after every family or dinner prayer, that is where Payton got it from)

I LOVE when I am burping Zack he always holds his strong little head up and looks at me. The angle his face is to mine melts my heart every time.

I LOVE nap time!!! (I'm normal to admit it)

I tag anyone who wants to reflect on what they love about their children. I smiled the whole time I was posting this blog.

We're back from Orlando, FL

The airplane ride was so fun. We went on a total of 4 airplanes and Payton only cried for about 10-15 minutes on 1 flight. Him and Zack did so good through the whole trip and we had them out and about til at least 12am every night.

We went to Orlando for the National Real Estate Convention and they rented out the entire Universal Studios for just the Realtors and their families. We went there and it was so much fun. The longest we stood in line was for maybe 10 minutes. Payton and Zack got to go on about 4 rides with us.

We stayed in a pool home. It was so nice to be able to put the boys down for a nap and walk out the back door and the pool was just feet away. There was screens around everyones pool to keep the mosquito's out and the lizards would crawl everywhere on them.

We went to the ocean so I could get my sunset picture with palm trees and so Robert could go swimming for his first time in the ocean. Someone told us there had been 18 bites this year so I chose not to get in. On a pier close to us my brother and sister-in-law witnessed someone catch a small shark while Robert was swimming. YIKES!!!

Notice Robert in the background posing for the camera.

We also went to Wonder World, went shopping, went to the Universal City Walk, and just enjoyed being away.
We did have fun and wish we were still there.

Catching up on Scrapbooking while locked in the hotel during "nap-time"
or taking a nap myself:) (my sister-in-law's idea)
Possibly Universal Studios (Robert gets to go for free, I'll see if it's worth the $ for me to go with two kids)

Sorry to brag, I'm just excited to go on a VACATION with my little family.

My sweet crazy good awesome news...

With my pregnancy with Zack I gained 33 pounds. (yikes) Today I have officially lost a grand total of.....................33 pounds since having Zack on the 6th. That's right baby!!! I'm back to my pre-prego weight already. I guess eating all the time and eating tons of candy pays off.

Just thought I'd share my excitement. (I'm not even close to where I want to be but at least I don't have baby weight to work off on top of what I want to lose)

Watch out Britney, I'm soon going to be your new competition!

In my dreams:(

Yummy Snow!!!

Robert and Payton played outside when it snowed. Robert threw snowballs at me at the window, and then Payton would eat them off the window. What a cute little nerd!!!

Are your bags packed?

So, I'm back!!! Last Monday as you all know from my sister posting for me, I had my baby Zack.

Last Monday Robert and I went in for our normal doctor's check-up. We get there and my blood pressure was a little high. (I've never had high blood pressure) Also, I had protein in my um... urine. (never had that before either) so, my doctor calmly says that I need to go upstairs and be monitored for an hour to make sure things are okay or else he was going to deliver. (Robert and I had to ask what he meant by "deliver", the doctor said, we'll deliver today if needed) Also, he said it was a 50/50 chance. So we take the doctors orders and head upstairs for monitoring and testing. The whole time the nurse is leading us to believe we are going home and this is very common to get checked and leave. But, she kept getting mad at me for asking what my blood pressure was and said to relax. (um...I just found out that I may have my baby today, my bags are not packed, I have a messy house, laundry is not done, Payton was only supposed to be at my sisters for an hour and we are going on 3 hours, I'm a bit stressed, and the nurse is mad at me because my blood pressure is still high. hum...I wonder why?) Anyways, after a few hours we find out this is going to happen for the safety of me (baby was always okay) so we get all the local family on the phone and invite them to the waiting party. We got to the hospital that day at 4:00pm, family arrived around 7:30-8:00pm and Zack was born at 9:26pm. All I can say was, "Holy crap, that came and gone FAST, and next time (5 years!!!) I will have my bags packed and in the trunk way early.

Payton is in love with kissing Zack and is doing so much better with him around. The first few day of being home we were going to sale Payton on Ebay to the highest bidder, but he has began to adjust so much better to having a little brother around. (It helps that the babies sleep all day so the focus can still be on Payton 90% of the time)

Zackary Joseph Brown‏

Zackary Joseph Brown‏ has arrived. He was born Monday October 6, 2008 at 9:24 p.m. He weighed 6lbs. 10 oz. and is 19 inches long. Chelsie is doing really good, considering, Robert has a perma smile on his face, and big brother Payton isn't sure what to think of his new baby brother yet. And as his aunt I must say this picture doesn't do him justice. He is a very cute little baby!!! And I'm not biased at all! Audrie

My Batman's photoshoot

Funnest photo shoot EVER!!! Any suggestions to what paper or magazine I should send these shots I got of batman for my prize money? Shots captured of Spiderman went for a lot on the movie and Batman is so much cuter. I think Robert and I will retire after they pay me my prize money. These should go for $millions. I caught him in an alley in the middle of Cache Valley.
