Happy Birthday Brookelynn!!

I was stuck in bed for Brookelynn's birthday so we were not able to do much on her big day, but we were so excited to have Rachel, Jaxson and Rawston come over to help us celebrate. They were so sweet to come over and bring a cool Tinkerbell cosmetic kit! :) I love this picture of Brookelynn styling Jaxson hair! Thanks Rach and Jax for making Brooke's day special!
We had to postpone Brookelynn's Tinkerbell birthday party by a few weeks but with some help from my parents we were able to have her special day at the park!

The birthday girl loved seeing all of her friends and family. Thank you everyone for making this a special day for our girl!

Brookelynn's First Day of School

Brookelynn had her first day of school in September! She was so excited and most excited that Brynn was in her class. We warned their teachers that Brynn & Brookelynn loved each other like sisters...so there was a lot of love and a lot of hate going on! haha

I love the picture of the girls after their first day. I know that I am going to look back on this picture in about 12 years and cry because it feels like this only happened yesterday. Love these girls!

Family Vacation - Sandestin, FL

We went to Sandestin, FL this past August and had such a WONDERFUL time! It was such a sweet time with my husband and girls. The beaches were beautiful and Brookelynn loved the beaches. The sweetest part of the entire week was seeing how much the girls truly enjoyed the being with their daddy. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am to have such an amazing man! Thank you God for blessing me with my wonderful husband!

This is just a brief overview of the trip. I was able to make a book that captured all of the sweet moments...

Big Announcement- Baby Beal #3

We are very excited to welcome another baby into our family! This was the pic that we sent to our families to let them know about the exciting news! We are so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with another child. We continually pray for her health and we are so anxious to meet her!

Hawaiian Falls 2011

We drove past Hawaiian Falls a lot this summer, so Brookelynn talked about the 'slides' quite a bit! We finally went with the kiddos near the end of the summer. We weren't sure how the kids would do but the LOVED it! The big girls started with these small slides then dominated the big twisty slide! It was so fun to see the girls build up confidence to do something that made them a little nervous. Hopefully that friendship will only encourage good, safe, wholesome fun in all of the upcoming years! haha

Circus 2011

In July, Jenn and I took Brynn and Brookelynn to the Barnum & Bailey Circus. It was such a special day for our 'big girls'! They loved seeing all of the animals and performers. Here are a few pictures of our fun day.
After the Circus the girls and I headed to Tyler with Gigi to see Jenn and Mom's cousin Kim. We had such a fun girls weekend! It was also Jenn's 21st birthday so we celebrated my little sister!

The weekend is one that I will never forget because I found out the morning of the Circus that I was pregnant with our 3rd baby girl! I was a little surprised! Bailey was out of town and in my shock I ended up telling him that I was pregnant as he sat at dinner with 3 colleagues in an airport restaurant. He was a little surprised too! But we are so excited and blessed to be expecting another baby girl into our family on April 2nd.

Lake weekend with the Selfs

We headed to Cedar Creek lake with the Selfs in August and had so much fun! The kids had a blast playing in the water and riding the Jet Skis and boat! Brookelynn loved riding the Jet Ski with dad!

The little ones loved playing in the pool on the deck! We had a wonderful weekend with special friend but on Sunday Berkley got a little boo-boo! So sad! I felt terrible! She fell out of a chair in her bumbo and landed on the tile floor. It scared me to DEATH!! Our pretty girl had quite a lip when we left.
