Last weekend I was supposed to go to a Craft Fair for some sisters in my Relief Society so my parents took Chandler for a day! I ended up not going to the craft fair but was grateful for the alone time I got to spend with Brody! When I asked him what he wanted to do for the day he told me, " Lets go to the museum, McDonalds and Disneyland." I did take him to the Childrens Museum and McDonalds but Disneyland was a bit out of the way! I had so much fun hanging out with him and doing whatever he wanted! I love my little guy so much and I am so thankful for the sweet spirit he has! Here is just a brief update in the Life of Brody Smith!

--Brody in gymnastics--


I decided to enroll Brody in gymnastics on one of the days that Chandler was at preschool so he didn't feel left out! He loved gymnastics and did a really good job! He does great cartwheels and loved walking on the beam! Way to go Brod!



--Brody at the Childrens Museum--
This Airplane was the highlight of the museum! He loved pretending he was flying!



This is a Hurricane simulator. The wind got up to 90 MPH. Brody kept telling me we needed to get out because it was blowing his glasses off!

--Brody with Santa--


We were able to see Santa at Chandlers school this year! Anytime we go anywhere I always make my kids tell me the rules for where we are going. The rules usually include: no hitting, no biting, no screaming, no going crazy...you get the picture! So after we saw Santa, Brody says to me " I followed the rules. I didn't even punch Santa."

Brody was an Angel in the Christmas program! He was so proud of himself:)

--Brody in 20 Years--


I love this picture, despite the fact that Brody is clearly horrified! My dad bought these mustaches for the kids to wear and they all looked so funny! I think the glasses added a little extra something to Brody because he looked great!
Smith girls: Doesn't he look like the creeper from "Lovely Bones" weird but true!

I love this post about the little Brodster! We love him so much. He is a sweet, adorable, little guy and his smile would brighten anyone's day!! Thanks to Emma Liz for passing on her joke. Brody loved it! You are a good Mom Rikki, to take advantage of those one on one days. They don't happen very often.

What a great Idea!! I love Brody!!! I love your whole family. It was so fun to be with you at Christmas. My kids had so much fun with yours. Brody seriously amazes me with his gymnastic skills:)

Wow, Brody! I'm so impressed with your gymnast skills. I could never hang from the rings like that. Sorry to say, though, you DO look like the weirdo from "The Lovely Bones." Yikes. I LOVE your joke and will have to have Emma watch that video.
