Brunson's 2009

Brunson's 2009

Monday, January 17, 2011

So our family loves to dress up. Halloween is a favorite holiday and we live for costume parties. Here are some highlights.

Zach and I at his work Halloween party, 2010. He's a Vietnam Vet ("There I was...") and I'm a blonde Peg Bundy. Lleida kept telling people, "my parents are white trash." Sadly, we already had all this stuff available at home (except the blonde wig and Zach's gut).
This was Halloween 2007. We're visiting Zach at work. How'd you like to come see a doc like him?

Halloween 2005 in Colorado. Lleida was a little pixie/sprite. I'm wearing my muu muu from dancing with the Polynesian club in BYU.

This year's Halloween party. Zach's a Vet, I'm Dolly Parton, Cairo is Dastan from the Prince of Persia, and Lleida's Rapunzel.

Halloween 2009. Lleida's Supergirl and Cairo's Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes. You'll note that I designed Cai's costume to work with a snow suit.

Halloween 2008. Z's a tough guy, Cairo's a turtle, Lleida's a mermaid, and I'm just wearing clothes I found around the house.

Halloween and etc.

Despite the fact we've been off the grid for the last six months, much has happened. Most importantly, Zach's home for good. Also, we had a good Halloween. Lleida was Super Girl, and Cairo was Batman and Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes fame. For some reason, the pictures aren't loading, so I'll try again later

Dance Recital

I realize it's been quite awhile since I last posted, and I do apologize for that. To make up for it, you get not one, but two dance videos from Lleida and my recital. Lleida, of course, is darling. I on the other hand wore short (short) shorts and am desperately out of shape trying to do a dance like a 4 minute sprint. Needless to say, I'm not quite as cute. Nevertheless, I love you all and will try really hard to be better about updates.

Zach has landed

Zach is now officially in Iraq at his Base. His base is called Falcon. It's in southern Baghdad.

We got to talk to Zach on Skype today. Originally, I was thinking, oh, the phone calls and occasional email will be okay. We'll save money that way and it's really not that big of a deal. I was completely wrong! It was so fantastic to see Zach talk and smile. The kids were ecstactic. Cai kept staring at our moniter (which a giant flat screen tv) in wonder and Lleida kept jumping up and down and saying, "Hi Dad! I see you, I see me!"

Obviously, a good time was had by all, and best of all, we got to say Good Night and blow kisses to Daddy before the kiddies went to bed.

Such a little man

Saturday, the kids and I went to my nephew Morgan's birthday party. A great time was had by all, and at the end, we went outside to play. Due to the generosity of his cousins, Cairo got to ride on a Cairo sized 4-wheeler. Which he LOVED. It's apparent this boy's a Bagley.

I know it's been awhile...

Zach and I in North Carolina in front of the Poe House
Lleida in front of our neighbors giving away pizza bites.

Alrighty, people. I realize it's been quite some time since I last posted, but in my defense, I'm lazy.

To update ya'll on what's been happening, Zach was able to come home for a few days, and then I went to North Carolina with Zach for a week, before he took to the skies and headed over seas. The children and I basked in all that is Zach and I had a fabulous week alone with Zach (Thanks Mom!)

Now, everything is back to semi normalcy, albeit without Zach. Z says it's hot over there, but the chow is good. We say it's finally nice over here, and the kids are constantly dirty because they LOVE to play in the dirt. Not the grass, or the swing set, or with balls, the dirt. I have wised up and bought them a plethora of cheap shovels and rakes and the like and so far the children are quite happy, which in turn makes me happy. I'll try and post some pictures of them "gardening" soon.

He Walks, He Talks, He Eats Big People Food (albeit messily)

Here are some pictures and video of Cairo.

I actually took this video of Cai walking last week, but couldn't get my pictures to download until this week, so just for your info, Cai's an even better walker now. I'll try to get more video soon.

This picture of Cai with the messy face just cracked me up. We were eating spaghetti O's and while Lleida did a great job of not making a big mess, Cairo got it all over his body. Literally head to toe. Sadly, I didn't grab the camera in time to take the picture of Cai licking his tray clean.

The second video is of Cairo, Papa, and Juliette (Brandi's baby) who's a month younger than Cai. They were both sitting on Papa's lap happy. This was a first time experience. Love you all.
