Finally Caught Up!

I am finally caught up on my blogging!!! Not my best work, but four posts in one night is definitely a record. ENJOY!

Last Weekend

Saturday I went to Fort Collins to celebrate Thaiya's 7th birthday and Jetrin's 1st birthday at Chuck E Cheese. Bradlee was really excited to see her cousins. Jetrin would give Brock a hug everytime they were close. It was the cutest thing ever. Jamie said he would send me the pictures, but I don't expect I will see those anytime soon. He also told me he would update his blog!

Right after the birthday party, I had to hurry back up to Cheyenne to the Ward Valentine's party that the Elders were putting on. It was an awesome party....too bad only like 20 people showed up! Their loss!!!

Sunday we had a sister in our ward and her husband, who is an investigator, over for dinner. They are a super fun family, and it was really nice to get to know them better.

Sweetheart Tag


I got this tag a long time ago, but it was too good to let it go to waste! Better late than never...



My Sweetheart
1. Where did you first meet your sweetheart?
He approached me at ward prayer and said, "You are from Klamath Falls, right? Your last name is Bricco, right? Your dad's name is Terry, right?" Turns out he served his mission in K-town and totally knew my whole family!

2. What do you remember most about him/her?
He was wearing his South Davis t-shirt and old man slippers.

3. Who asked who out first?
He totally asked me out first. After all, he was practically stalking me. Just kidding, it was more of a mutual decision that we would go do something.

4. What did you do on your first date?
We went out to eat at an Italian restaurant on Center St. in Provo. I can't remeber the name of it right now, but I had lipstick on my teeth, and Tyler thought I might be "special".

5. What were your favorite things to do together when you were dating?
We ate and fought a lot, but we were also both very into music.

6. When was your first kiss with your sweetheart?
November 2003

7. When did you first realize you loved him or her?
Probably when he pulled my backpack over my head and pushed me down in the BYU library. Cracks me up to this day.

8.Who said it (I love you) first?
Well, I asked Tyler if he could ever love me, and he said he already did. So...techically he said it first, but I was totally fishing for it!

9.How did he/she propose?
Well due to the infamous "incident" that we don't speak of, I was currently at home in Klamath Falls, and one Sunday after church and after coming home from candy shopping in Granny's candy dresser, Tyler popped out of my closet and proposed.

10. What are two things you remember most about your wedding day?
How Tyler and I were truly best friends, and how lucky I was to have ALL of my siblings in the temple with me.

Valentine's / Presidents' Day Weekend

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. I get super excited for it every year. Friday night Tyler and I took the kids to Red Lobster to celebrate. As usual, I ate all of my meal and some of Tyler's also. I just can't help myself.

Saturday morning we woke up and....THE VALENTINE BIRD CAME! Bradlee was so excited! The bird brought each of the kids valentines shirts. Bradlee also got a DVD, candy and a toy. Brock got a toy ball and a toy jeep. I have a feeling he will probably get some candy next year too!

Saturday afternoon all of the McLachlan's came to visit us for the weekend. It was so good to see family! Saturday night we went out to Red Lobster AGAIN! We got in in under an hour which was AWESOME.







Sunday we all went to church. Lisa came with me to my Sunday School class and shared an experience from her mission. It was really touching, and I was so glad she came. Also, Bradlee made cookies with grandma, and we played some sort of card game with LOTS and LOTS of Ski men. I think Tyler had the most ski men though!











Monday we went down the outdoor mall in Loveland. That was a blast because I LOVE me some shoppin'! The day was beautiful, and everyone had a great time walking around outside. The McLachlans bought Bradlee a Build-a-Bear which she obviously loves. Monday night we ate dinner at Godfather's pizza.



Our "long" weekend turned out to be way too short! I don't have any pictures of Collin or Lisa. I guess that means you guys will have to come back up soon!

More From Bradlee...

I don't know how many of you have seen the Bill Swerkski's Super Fans skit on Saturday Night Live, but those of you who have will get a kick out of this...

Tyler: Bradlee, can you say Brock?
Bradlee: Daaaaa Baby!
And then tonight at Red Lobster...
Me: Bradlee, you should try some of your fish.
Bradlee: NO, Tory!

Brock Update

First of all, he has been holding his own bottle for a while now. It makes me happy and sad all at the same time. It is really nice to be able to just hand it to him when I am in a hurry, but it means he is growing up too fast! Did I mention that I also still let Bradlee have a bottle from time to time? And the mother of the year award goes to...(wait for it)...TORY MCLACHLAN!

Secondly, he is crawling! I saw it for the first time yesterday night during family prayer. I had my eyes open, obviously, and watched him crawl over to Tyler. It took a lot of self control not to start cheering in the middle of the prayer.

He is getting so big! I sure am gonna miss Baby Brock!

25 Random Things...

Thanks for the tag, Kate!

1. I hate staying anywhere besides my own house. I refuse to take my shoes off in hotel rooms, and I won't allow the comforter to touch me (you know they don't wash those every time).

2. I would rather have nice things and a nice house than travel. I don't like travelling because I don't like staying anywhere besides my own house.

3. I dance and sing in my house as loud as I can, and I pretend that I am on stage in front of lots of people. It's one of my fantasies...and I am only halfway serious about it!

4. If I had to look like someone else, I would pick Eva Mendes. What can I say, I could use a little junk in the trunk...not anywhere else, but there, yes.

5. I am a quitter by nature. I don't really care for challenges or anything of the sort.

6. I have terrible social skills. People make me SOOO nervous.

7. I honestly believe that my parents know everything. I trust everything they say 100%, no questions asked.

8. I miss dancing more than anything. I am not that good at it, but it sure does make me happy. I plan to take it up again one day...on my own terms...my own style...in a studio...in my basement.

9. I once stole every life preserver from every pool in Klamath Falls. I had help, but I am pretty sure it was my idea. Well, not all of them, but a lot.

10. People say I am super competitive, but I don't really think so. Molly is WAY more competitive than I am. Oh yeah, and she's meaner.

11. My idea of a good time ALWAYS involves food.

12. Sometimes, I let Bradlee eat a cookie for breakfast...sue me.

13. I cheat at games.

14. I am not sentimental at all about material things.

15. Folding clothes is my least favorite household chore.

16. I LOVE Valentine's Day.

17. I have twelve frames hung on the wall in my basement with no pictures in them.

18. I think the vacuum is the greatest invention ever.

19. It is super hard for me to keep my eyes closed during prayers.

20. Almost every night I get up at about 2 am because I have to have some candy.

21. Remember when you were little and you would watch a karate movie, or something like that, and then for the next hour would be doing karate moves all over the house? Yeah, I still do that.

22. I only have five colors in my wardrobe...black, white, brown, pink & denim.

23. I like to fall asleep with the tv on.

24. I don't like to be touched.

25. I think having fewer nice clothes is way better than having lots of crappy clothes.

Wow! I thought 25 would be easy, but it was super hard. Sorry to those of you who actually read through all these.
