Hyrum had his first bath-bath (non-sponge):
The story: He was an angel! The first time Brody got a bath he screamed his head off... which is funny because I read babies generally like baths. Brody STILL hates baths so I guess it's just him. Anyway Hyrum was so cute- cried only a little when we took him out- cold probably. I hate getting out of a bath or shower too in the winter! (that's one thing I love about AZ I'm rarely cold after. haha moving on..)
First we got 3 free cupcakes from Sprinkles THEN I won a dozen for free!
The Story: Like most days I was craving something sweet. We had big plans to see Santa at Bass Pro Shop so little me told tony, "you know... we'll be half way to Sprinkles..." So we checked out the word of the day and got free ones! Even Brody got his! I noticed a contest going on- take a picture of your free cupcake and you could win a free DOZEN! I decided to be a little creative with mine, if I may be so bold to say it was creative. I finished it and uploaded it to my facebook- then spent the next 10 minutes TRYING to figure out how to post a fan photo on their facebook page. After some time, I must've refreshed the page because then I noticed SECONDS EARLIER they announced the winner. It was a simple group photo! Good for them-- but GAH! I JUST MISSED THE CONTEST! And I'm not gonna lie, I spent a good chunk of my afternoon making mine. I was horribly let down - CRUSHED to bits- but said anyway, "I couldn't figure out how to add a fan photo so it's on my page.. please go look at it so I didn't just waste two hours. haha!" Someone from Sprinkles emailed me and asked to see it- then responded with this: "Wow! I’m happy we didn’t miss out on this one!! So cute! Even though we already announced our winner on Facebook, I think this should have won! Next time you’re by our store, just give us (yadda yadda) for a dozen cupcakes on us." GLORY BE! How lucky am I!! (That's a $40value, people!) Anyway... lesson learned.. never hurts to work for something you want. Especially cupcakes. he!
Oh and here's the picture I submitted- haha.
Wish you were horseback riding instead of working?...Post a picture of your free cupcake on our Facebook page and we’ll give our favorite photo a dozen free cupcakes!"
Brody met Santa!
The Story: We were too early for the Santa at Bass so we just played and then later just went to a mall close by to see him. Brody met him last year but didn't quite get it. He knew who Santa was but didn't have that Christmas-ey sparkle in his eye. THIS year he DID... it was sooo adorable. When it was his turn Brody just ran up to him and started rambling off his list before he even said hi or sat in his lap. HAHA!!! Brody's list keeps getting bigger every time we ask him what he wants, too btw. lol. Cutie pie.
Brody's Christmas list:
-"a buzz one"
-"a bug one"
-"a thomas one"
-"a spaceship one"
and the list goes on..
It's funny how he says it though- when Santa asked him what he wanted he said, "a monster truck!"
