Hanging out with the folks.

I don't know why but I find Elizabeth to be impossibly cute in her little Baby Bumbo. Maybe it's because she's just to petite that it looks like her seat is swallowing her. Anyway, it's a good thing she likes it in there because that's where she hangs out every evening while we make dinner and wait for Dad to get home.

She's so curious. She follows every sound she hears. The kitchen is great that way. There are enough sights and sounds in there to keep her entertained forever!

Here's Adam at his favorite time of day. He's all over story time before bed. That's good news for Elizabeth since he's way better at doing Brown Bear's voice than I.

Are you all sick of Elizabeth pictures yet?

I'm a little late.

Here's Elizabeth in her Halloween costume. Sadly, she was feeling a little under the weather and didn't much feel like smiling but I still thought she was the cutest little witch in the world.

And I just thought this photo was hilarious. We went trick or treating with my nieces and nephew in McKinney. Nate, the littlest, had had enough and so Adam mercifully carried Humpty Dumpty the rest of the way. Isn't that costume a riot?

Farewell, Old Friend

After just two years, I said good bye to my life as a lawyer. Monday would have been my first day back. Did I feel a twinge of sadness about closing that chapter of my life?

Anyone who knows me well will tell you I've dreamed of being a lawyer since I was tiny. It's the only thing I can ever remember wanting to be and it was everything I thought it would be. And then, from one day to the next, I went from Tamara Braun, Esquire to Mommy. Now my days are filled with things like bathtime...

and naptime

and playing dress up

and my personal favorite...snuggling.

It's the best job I could have ever asked for. It's the job I'd have wished for all my life if I'd known it was an option. Thanks for giving me this promotion, Elizabeth and Adam. I promise I won't let you down!

You'd do it too...

This is a fun game! Shannon tagged me to post the 5th picture in your "My Pictures" file. Here's mine.

It's my little brother and I with Cosmo at a BYU football game in 2004. That brings back such good memories.

I tag Carrie, Michelle, Carrie and Karlye. Let's see it girls. The 5th picture in your "My Pictures."

Like it's 1999!

So, I'm a little late but here's the low down on my B-day. Let's just begin by saying look at this awesome cake Adam whipped up! Mmmm. Look how happy it made me!

Adam rounded up my nieces and nephews to help him throw me a surprise party the Saturday before my big day! See? Nothing says love like decorating my SIL's kitchen in crepe paper.

Adam made this perfect double layer birthday cake for me while I was sleeping! I had no idea. Not bad for a first attempt, huh? It makes me hungry all over again just looking at it!

Elizabeth helped me blow out my ample supply of candles.

And here is a table full of my very favorite party girls.

Thanks Adam for yet another perfectly executed party. It was so fun. I couldn't have loved anything more...and yet he still managed to outdo himself on my real birthday! Some girls get all the luck!

Guess what?!?

I wasn't excited about it...but I did it.
