Happy Late Halloween! Michael picked out Kalai's Halloween costume as a surprise when I was pregnant so it was fun to finally see how cute she looked in it!!!

So I know that I am WAY behind in this but I wanted to let everyone know Kalai's updated stats (15 month check-up). Sorry I don't remember all the exact details
Head: 50 %
Height 50 %
.......AND drumroll please......
Weight: 10% 20lbs. She is technically more like 8% but still!
She is on the charts! I'm so proud of her!

Also, here is a video of a lightening storm that kept me & Michael up at night. Insane!

Extra Extra Read All About it!

A couple fun stories from the life of the Brown Family...
*Kalai came up to me today and used a wet wipe to "clean" my face and then bent down and gave me a kiss! Aww..she's gonna be a good mommy someday!
*I had Kalai up on the conveyor belt at Wal-mart and the male cashier just loved her. Kalai was playing with a package of gum and holding it up like a phone. As we were leaving, he said, "My gift to the baby" and I looked on the receipt and realized he had bought her the gum! Oh how very sweet! And we benefited too, since we are gonna be the ones actually having the gum!
Ssshhhh...... I'm blaming this one on the daddy :)
*Michael was watching Kalai and she was going through my purse but he didn't think too much of it. When I got back in the room I said to Michael, "why is she making a face like she has dentures in her mouth?" but we still didn't think much of it. I pulled out her tooth brush and opened her mouth and realized there was something shiney in there. I pulled it out and it was a Hersey's chocolate hug wrapper! Oops. She had sucked all the chocolate out of it. She must have gotten it out of my purse. I went to brush her teeth again and again there was something in her mouth. Another wrapper. Are you kidding me? I pulled it out and went to brush her teeth and again another wrapper. That child had sucked clean three chocolate hugs at the same time. For a girl who was never had chocolate...she learned pretty quickly how good it was. Lets just say, we brushed her teeth extra good and also I'm gonna have to get a better hiding spot for my treats. Like I said...I'm blaming the daddy.
*Yesterday my whole family went to three different temples! What are the chances of that? I was able to go to The Birmingham LDS Temple with the youth from our church since my calling is in the YW Presidency. It was so nice to be able to see the rising generation take time out of there busy schedules to attend the Temple. There was a special Spirit there and I know they were doing the work of the Lord. I'm so thankful for their testimonies of the gospel and for their examples to me.
Michael and I took Kalai to the temple! Here are a couple pictures of her.

On the other side of the conversation

My parents often call to talk to Kalai on the phone and so yesterday I decided to video tape Kalai while she was chatting on the phone so that they could see what it looked like from the other side of the conversation. My favorite part is at the end when I ask her, "who's sweet?" and she answers! Wait for it....

Life Lately

Here are just a couple of pictures of Kalai modeling the bow I made her at Christmas time! Even though I think the bow is super cute I just can't stop from looking at Kalai and her beautiful eyes! She's adorable.

Even though I am the one who usually whips out the camera in our family, I love it when Michael tries his hand at it too cause I think he is really talented at capturing the moment!

Dream Vacation!!!

After a long hard week of packing up and moving to our new place, we were rewarded with a fun-filled week of vacation time to FLORIDA!!! We drove down to Orlando with my parents to take Kalai to Disneyworld for the first time! My mom did volunteer service and was able to get us all free tickets there. Thanks Mom! Kalai loved it which is a good thing since we went there to celebrate her birthday with the Familia side of the family. She esp. loved Pirates of the Caribbean (her first ride) and It's a Small World (her last ride). She loved looking around and see all the sites. It was a really fun age to take her because she was just soaking in all the information. She finally fell asleep during the Electric Light Parade on my parents laps. We took video footage of her so I will put a video up here later. After that, we drove down to PANAMA CITY!!!Michael's side of the family owns a beach house there and we were lucky enough to get to stay there for the week. It was fabulous to say the least! The ocean was warm, the sand was white, the sunsets were gorgeous and the company was great! We had a couple of friends from Birmingham (The Thornton's and the Stoddard's) join us for the week and it was a blast! We spent the whole week shopping, boogie boarding and tanning. Plus I had my parents there so that was an added plus! My mom cooked her way through The Pioneer Women Cookbook and also made her specialty and family fave- Tacos! So, lets just say, we ate pretty good that whole week. At the end of the week, we threw Kalai one last birthday party so she could celebrate her birthday with the Familia side and my parents got her the cutest gifts but I'm gonna have to post pictures of the gifts later...believe me, it's worth the wait! Also, I will post some pictures later of the big gift we gave Kalai. Anyways, here are some pictures of the trip. We got also got to have our family photos taken on the beach and I'm really happy with how they turned out. Thanks Dad! The rest of the pictures are of fun-filled vacation! I hope going to the beach house is a new tradition!


Here's a sneak pic of the photo shoot I did for my friends, the Thornton's, while at the beach. I have a few other photo shoots that I need to catch up on before I get to the rest of them.
