Bri's Birthday & More

We went to Utah for Brighton's birthday. Well, actually, we went for Maeve's blessing, but were there for Brighton's birthday, which was a great bonus! My whole family was there, which is rare these days, so we had to get some family photos done since we were all together. We loved spending time with everyone & miss you all already!

Grandma wasn't at all excited to see miss Brighton. Ha!

Brighton loves this picture of Grandpa. Everytime she sees it she says "Papa's so funny" and laughs. I also have to chuckle a little everytime I see it. Timmy is lookin pretty tough in his pink Abby Cadabby birthday hat. :)

Brighton was reunited with her boyfriend Easton while we were in Utah. Don't they make a cute little pair?

Me and Steph. It was so fun to see the Gunns. We love you guys! Come visit us!

We were so happy to finally meet Maeve. She is so precious. It was funny to hear everyone talking about how big she was getting because she looked pretty little tiny to us. So cute. We love you Maeve. And it was so good to spend some good time with Lex. I loved staying up late and talking to her every night. Some quality sister time was needed. Love ya sista!

It's a little hard to see in the picture, but Maeve has the greatest hair ever. It sticks pretty much straight up and has a mind of its own. Definitely gets her hair from her dad. Love it.

So Brighton is 2 years old!!! I can't believe it. Everyone always says how fast time goes, but seriously, it does! She had a great birthday and we are so glad we got to spend it with family! It was pretty low key, but just right for her. She got to open presents, eat pizza and cake, and play with her grandparents and cousins all day.

Kodiak was such a good present opening helper. And oh how Bri loved opening all of her presents! She almost didn't even care what was in them. She just wanted to open more. Her birthday was a week ago and she is still telling me that she wants "more presents Mom."

Getting ready for pizza and cake. Oh boy.

Notice the pinky. She is so careful trying not to get dirty. When I showed her this picture she said "dirty face Mom, need a towel!" Funny girl. Pizza is her favorite thing. She has been known to down three pieces before so we had to get her some on her b-day! One of her other favorite things is Abby Cadabby, which was the theme of her little party. For those of you who don't know Abby Cadabby, she is Elmo's fairy friend on Sesame Street. Bri is a big fan.

Bri got her candles all blown out with a little help from Kodiak. :)

Happy Birthday Brighton! We love you! You bring so much laughter and joy into our lives and we are thankful for you every single day! Mwwaahh (big kiss from Mom & Dad)! xoxo.

This is going to be a very strange comment as you don't know me and I am not sure if your husband remembers my family. My maiden name is Sandy Wallace and my dad was Donald's bishop growing up in Prundale and my Uncle Ken was also his bishop. Anyways, I found your blog through my cousins Jennifer Wallace and then from there from Jay Fear. I live in Vancouver and I was at Target today in Fisher's Landing and I could have sworn that Donald was behind my husband and I. I was too much of a chicken to say anything to ask if it was him or not. If this was not him I apologize for this comment. I also wanted to let you know that my parents as well as my brother Toby and his family live her as well. I am Brendens age. Feel free to leave me a comment again sorry if that wasn't him.

Hey Ash, what a fun trip!! You look so cute in all the pics. Brighton is adorable as usual. I love the way she's eating pizza so sophisticated like, with that pinky raised and sauce all over her face. What a cutie!
