Trophy Pizza Party

Brandon's soccer team had a pizza party tonight. After they ate pizza, cupcakes, and cookies they got their trophies. Brandon was so excited about his trophy. It was a nice pizza party and nice seeing all of the players and Coach Joe one last time. The last two soccer games of the season never happened because of the hurricane so the season ended with no closure.

Newman Cousins


We had Thanksgiving at our house again this year. There were 16 people there- me, Stu, Brandon, and Wesley, my parents, Stu's aunt Amy, Stu's parents, Stu's brother, sister in law, and nephews, and our friends, John, Rachel, and their daughter Tori. We had a nice Thanksgiving and it was nice having family and friends with us to celebrate.

Pre-K Pow Wow

Brandon's preschool (Ivy Hedge) had a pre-k pow wow show today that Brandon was in. He did such a great job and sang all of the songs that he has learned. I think he was the loudest one singing and was so into it. He had a smile on his face the whole time. The show lasted a half hour and was really cute.

Brandon and Wesley are really starting to develop a relationship with eachother. They play together sometimes now and interact with eachother. They both make eachother laugh which is really cute. It is really nice seeing the relationship that is developing between them. They really love eachother a lot. On Friday night we went to family fun night at Brandon's school. Brandon was sitting with the big kids playing a game and Wesley ran up to him and started hugging him. It was really cute. Every morning when Wesley wakes up the first thing he asks for is re re (what he calls Brandon). Brandon is constantly kissing Wesley. Yesterday the two sat together and played doctor for awhile on their own.

Sick Boys

The stomach bug went through our house this week. Everyone except me had it. It started on Sunday night with Wesley a few minutes after I put him to sleep. Stu got it Tuesday afternoon and Brandon woke up with it Tuesday into Wednesday. Everyone is finally healthy again. Even though the boys didn't feel great I got some cute pictures of them.

Jungleriffic and Birthday Parties

Last weekend was pretty busy. Saturday morning I brought Brandon and Wesley to jungleriffic with my friend Becky and her kids, Logan and Emma, to play. They both had a lot of fun playing there.

Later that evening Brandon went to a birthday party at R Bounce for his friend, Ella, from school. He was so excited to go to her party and had so much fun going in all of the bounce houses. He had a smile on his face the whole time. Logan was at the party too since he knows Ella too since his mom used to work with Ella's mom.

On Sunday Brandon had another birthday party. It was at a gymnastics place in Lakewood for his friend, Ava. Brandon loved it. There were slides, a ball pit, a bounce house, obstacle courses, ropes to swing from. Brandon told me he wants to take gymnastics classes.

Over the last week whenever Wesley sees Brandon lying down on the ground he has decided it is time to climb on him and stsrt wrestling. Brandon thinks it is funny and starts to laugh whuch causes Wesley to laugh and do it more. I am sure this is a glimpse into what my future with two boys looks like.


Every time Wesley sees the camera now he says "chee" and goes to sit in the red chair or on top of the toy box. Here are some of his "chee" pictures.
