Christmas Eve

We went to my parents house for Christmas Eve. It is our tradition, Christmas Eve is our big event when we open presents and have a great family dinner together. What you won't see in these pictures is the Ugg story. So I told my Mom I wanted a new pair of Uggs and when I was at their house a few days before Christmas I shook the boxes and knew I had a pair of Uggs under there (been shakin boxes for almost 30 yrs). So i tell my sweet husband this and he rats me out. Calls my Mom and says "Brittany has been looking under the tree and is pretty sure there are Uggs under there". So they get my Uncle Steve involved. He finds some brown boots at a Goodwill type store and they re-wrap the present with these boots in the Uggs box. I thought my Mom was trying to be "cool' and buy me a "stylish"pair of Uggs so I quickly looked at them and Said "Ohhhh Thank you". Of course you all know the look that was on my face. So once I figured it out when everyone was laughing at me that they tricked me and it served me right. So yes I did get my Uggs and a hot pair of 20 year old crap cowboy boots. HA HA. Just remember all of you that Karma's a Bitch (sorry to swear on the blog) so you all have it coming to you!!!!!!!!!! Also the train set and lincoln logs were my Dad's from when he was a kid. He is passing them on to Justin. It was a fun time for my Dad to see Justin playing with the toys he played with as a boy!

Reindeer Run 5k

This past saturday my girlfriend Tammy and I did our first 5k...we did it in 30.50 minutes which we were very happy with! It was a Lifetime Fitness run so I felt a little bit more motivated to do it. I didn't really train too much for it cause I didn't really know what to do. So I just incorporated running into my regular work outs 3 days a week. Now we are going to do the 4.2 mile Pat Tillman run in April. Hopefully that one will go well too. The family came out to support me. It was freezing!

Baking cookies

So my mom and I used to bake cookies every year, but we haven't almost since Ive been in college. So we decided to bake this year. We always do a traditional sugar cookie with multi colored frosting. I should have taken pictures of the end result cause we had about 10 dozen but now that I have given them all out we have about 12 cookies left to our name. We also made 6lbs of fudge. That I keep mostly for myself. I am always a sucker for chocolate! This year was so fun for my Mom AND Justin. He helped cut out the cookies and also helped to do the frosting and sprinkles! It was sooo fun!

Breakfast with Santa

Lifetime Fitness threw a breakfast with santa event. It was really fun! Tried to get our picture with Santa, but of course, Dylan wasn't having it. He is a true Brown in that he doesn't warm up to new people fast (I don't mean that in a bad way of course). Also have some pics of Justin with some of his really good friends Brody and Jacyee

Christmas cards

Last Thursday my parents came over to take some pictures for their Christmas card. It took us a while to get all of them to look at the camera. The tree and decorations were a bit distracting to the boys!


I know Thanksgiving was a few weeks back. Sorry for the delay. We had thanksgiving at our house this year with all of the kids, my parents, us and Uncle Steve. It was a great day of football and good food!
