The best time of the year.

I dont have many pictures to post from the rest of fall ( who really wants to see pictures of rain, rain, and more rain?) and I am a slacker that didnt get any pictures of Thanksgiving, but we were too busy enjoying everyone's company. I am vowing to do better at Christmas. We are almost ready in this Flinn family. Tonight is Brayden's Christmas program/Family party at Staci's, we have been put in charge of the special Happy Birthday Jesus cake. And Brayden has learned the motions to my favorite Christmas song " Away in the Manger" and his mommy couldn't be more proud. We hope to catch this on video to share. The rest of the weekend includes baking, wrapping, enjoying family time, and date night for mommy and daddy. This is my favorite time of the year and I hope to make it my sons as well. I think we are off to a pretty good start. I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year as much as we are. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Hello Fall...

Our fall has been wonderful. The weather hasn't been great but we have definitely made the most of the beautiful days we have been blessed with. We have made several trips to the pumpkin patches and we were lucky to make the trips with the grandparents. Aunt Brooke and Uncle Zach were even able to join us for our last visit on Halloween. Brayden's second Halloween was great---he even got the hang of trick or treating by the time we made it back to grandma's where Zach and Brooke were handing out the candy. I cannot wait to see how adventurous he is next year!

Good Bye Summer---

We ended our summer with a great vacation to Destin Florida with some of our family. It was a blast! We had perfect weather, an amazing house, and awesome family time. It was sad to know it was our last big summer fling--but it was so relaxing and fun it made it easier to come home and head into our busy fall. Our friend Patti captured some great memories for us and we are so appreciative!

Look Who is 1!!!!!

Our beautiful son turned 1 on August 17th!! Life is going by so quick and we are enjoying every minute of it!!
Happy Birthday Brayden!! Mommy and Daddy love you more than the world!!!!

Random Summer Pictures

Here are some random pictures of Brayden from over the summer--they are in no particular order---but you can see how he has grown out of his baby look over the past few months. He has accomplished so much as well---he finally got teeth--he has 6 of them. Went from barely crawling to taking his first steps. And is expanding his vocabulary daily. God has truly blessed us with a healthy HAPPY little boy! Stealing bites of Grandpa's Sweet Potatoe at Daddy's family birthday dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Nusbaum Daddy playing barber--look how good little Bray is being.

Daddy's Birthday, First Zoo Trip, and Daddy's First Fathers Day

All three of these things were packed into one relaxing fun weekend! Our weekend began on Saturday where we got up early and headed to the zoo --after that we headed to Truxton to celebrate Nathan's birthday with some of the family, and Sunday we spent the morning of Fathers Day with Grandpa Flinn, and the afternoon with Great Grandpa Reese. It was such a busy weekend was also one of our best from the summer!

Brayden's Baptism

On June 14th, 2009 our little boy Brayden was Baptized. We enjoyed a great weekend with family that included a cookout, the baptism service, and a nice brunch.
After the service with Pastor Gary---Brayden did great during the service and loved it when Pastor Gary introduced him to the congregation.
Godmother---Aunt Brookie Brayden before the service--he looked like such a little man!

Baby Maggie

We started the summer with a visit to Missouri to celebrate another baby in the Flinn Family. Jared and Nici were expecting their first baby--a little girl in August. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed watching them enjoy the excitement and preparation for their new addition.
Fast Forward to August 23rd----Miss Magdalene " Maggie" Elizabeth Flinn was brought into this world weighing 8Ibs 4 oz---and she is Beautiful! We cannot wait to meet her!!


Finally Im updating our blog!! We have had a great summer!! Full of fun activities and milestones for Brayden. In the past three months he is went from our baby to our little toddler-and we LOVE IT!

Easter 2009

Brayden's first Easter was great. Enjoy the pics we took to prove it! We had a little photo shoot with grandma a couple of weeks before. Easter was pretty relaxing we woke up bright and early to see what the easter bunny had brought, then we headed to church and an afternoon at Nonna and Pa's. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the beautiful weather, Brayden, and Family.

The last two months...

Have been so busy and fun! Brayden has changed and grown up so much. I feel like he is losing his little baby look and looking like a little boy. Here are a few pictures of him from the past few weeks.
