I'm 1!

Braxton turned One Year old on December 31st!  My how time flies I can't believe that I had a brand new baby boy a year ago!  He is such a joy and pleasure to have.  He can always make me smile, he is so inquisitive and has a contagious smile :)  

We got to have two different celebrations for his BIG DAY!  We had a fun party on New Years eve at our house, then we went up to SLC for my cousin's wedding that weekend and we got to have another fun party while there.  He had lots of cool new toys and some super cute new outfits!  The draw back to having a birthday right after Christmas I'll have to buy all his clothes for the rest of the year! Ha Ha!!


For Christmas this year we were up in SLC we stayed with Josh's sis Jamie and her hubby Chase.  This is their dog Brody opening his present from our dogs Buddy & Jake.  He is really getting into it, pushing it all around, hilarious! :)
This was the reward for getting the present open a lollipop! (for doggies)

Braxton opening his present from Aunt Jamie and Uncle Chase, he did such a good job of holding it up for the picture!

After helping daddy open our present from Jamie a& Chase, he thought that it was a toy to climb on!  Ha ha the boxes are just as entertaining as the toys!

Braxton going after another present from Grandma and Grandpa Johnson.
Oh, sweet a toy!  I'm all done!  Mom dad you open the rest of the presents when I'm done with this one I'll come investigate! :)

When we got home from Salt Lake we had Christmas with Grandma Karen and Grandpa Jeff, didn't get any pics but he sure got spoiled!!  He loved every minute of Christmas!

Floody Floody :)

I came home from dinner and games with some ladies at work and found this, for those who are unfamiliar with my house, it's not normally this piled up in one location! 
When I walked around the desk I found Josh working away on a flood, in our house, yes!  Well the perk of the whole situation is that i didn't have to pay someone to come and and fix it since that is what my hubby does!!

This is what the wall ended up looking like. There was mold on the baseboard and climbing up the back of the dry wall so it all got replaced~

This my beautiful strawberry patch was the culprit of it all, the drain comes down off of the roof right into the dirt, well apparently it wasn't draining down like it's supposed to, it was soaking up all of the dirt underneath the patio and seeping into our basement! So now I have plastic coving my strawberry's and when that comes off it will be a pig black plastic pipe to ensure the water makes it as far away from the house as possible.
Bottom pays to have a handy husband!
