Kyle's Baptism

Kyle was Baptized by Chris on Nov 21, 2009 along with his cousin Porter by his Dad Tony.  It was such a good time to be together as a family and make a great memory.  We had family come from Utah and had all our family with us that lives in Arizona as well.  I was so proud of Kyle and could see how happy he was.   It was a beautiful day and we of course celebrated afterwards with a big BBQ at our house and the kids ran and played and the adults talked and ate.  I thoroughly enjoyed that day and was so grateful for family and friends that came from all over to be with us.  Congratulations Kyle we love you and are so proud of you!

Kyle's Big 8th Birthday

Kyle turned the big 8 on November 8th and he was so excited!  It started with Breakfast in bed that consisted of Eggs, Bacon, toast and apple juice.  Then the kids had their primary sacrament meeting and then we had Kyle's favorite dinner which he chose Crepes, yummy!  I made him a baseball cake but neglected to see if I had candles which of course I didn't so I had a six and tiffany had a 2 so if you add them up it equals 8 right???  Kyle didn't mind.  He then had his friend party at Brunswick Bowling center the next saturday with his buddies, Tyler M, Tyler G, Hunter, Scott and Jason Palmer, Jordan G, and Austin H and Jacob H.  They bowled and ate pizza and then had cake (A bowling cake of course).  He got lots of gift cards to Target and Game Stop and nerf guns a star wars light saber, scriptures, night vision goggles and the monsters vs. aliens movie and money.  It was a great birthday for Kyle.  He is such a good boy and has a very sweet soft voice (when he wants to) that I just love.  We are so blessed and grateful to have him in our family.

Kyle started scouts for the first time this month and he was soooo excited to go, so of course I sewed on all the patches and got him ready.  Doesn't he look cute in his uniform?

Happy Halloween from the Breretons!

Halloween is always for us.  Our neighborhood has a party every year and it's so fun, this year Chloe went as a Hula girl to that party and then went as a mermaid to go trick or treating. Zach went as a football player and Kyle as a baseball player and Sydney well she's a teenager so she didn't dress up.... I reminded her that I went trick or treating until I was a senior in high school, but she didn't budge..... We carved pumpkins the day before halloween and then roasted the seeds, they are yummy!  Halloween night the kids went with their friends and got tons of candy and had a great time.  

Good looking pumpkin there Zach!
Don't cut yourself Kyle!
Trick or Treat!
The end result, don't they look happy?

Football Season

Zach has been playing football this season for the CYF Vipers.  It's been a learning experience and time consuming but he seems to be enjoying it now, especially since he's scored 2 touchdowns and had some great tackles.  Here are some pics of the season so far.

We had the privilidge to watch The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints General Conference yesterday and one talk stands out in particular by Jeffrey R. Holland. Please watch if you haven't already seen it, it is a beautiful witness of the Book of Mormon.

Chloe turned 4 on Aug 28th but I've been a litttle slow on my posts so I'm finally getting to it.  She was so excited for her birthday it was all she talked about.  She decided (with the help of her brothers) to go to Bounce Jungle, we invited the neighborhood kids, and cousins.  They were able to jump for a few hours then I gave them all treat bags and a cupcake and that was it.  It was very fun.  She got some cute gifts like a necklace, a dress, shoes, and hair bows, books, window markers and crayons,  2 princess barbies, a barbie cash register, Lelli Kelly shoes, cd player and 4 cd's, dress up dresses and accessories and a princess sleeping bag and tent.  I decided to try and make another themed birthday cake so I made a mermaid cake and it was cute but I'm definitely still learning.   Happy Birthday Chloe We love you!

My Stomach has a headache.....

My dear sweet Chloe always says funny things and I didn't want to forget them.  As I was doing the dishes this morning she came downstairs and told me that her stomach has a headache.  Then when we were on our ways to mom's class she told me that her teeth and her eyes are very special.  I love the 4 year old stage they are so cute and say such fun things.  Not too much is new, we are very busy with kids activities and life, I will blog about Chloe's birthday soon.

Our little Mia

Well we had to say goodbye to our little Mia.  She was bit a few months ago on the eye by our black lab Daisy (she wasn't happy that Mia was trying to eat her food).  Mia's eye swelled up and then a bluish grey film covered it and we could tell that she was blind in that eye.  So from then on we fed the dogs separately until the other night when Mia slipped out the sliding door while Daisy was being fed and it happened again on the other eye!  This time it was worse and the eye popped out of the socket (not all the way out) but enough that even if she had the surgery(over $1000) to fix it there was no guarantee that she would ever see in that eye.  So we decided to take her to humane society and they could decide whether to treat her or put her down.  The doctor there said there was hope of fixing it and adopting her to someone who could take care of a blind dog.  We are so sad!  We miss her and I think Daisy misses her too.  We just knew that with 4 kids and all the friends running around and with Daisy acting the way she does we knew we couldn't keep her anymore.  She was such a funny dog and loved to sit her little bum on daisy and then her front paws would sit on the ground, it was so  cute.  The pics are of the kids on the morning we took her away.  Her eyes were bandaged so she couldn't see anything.  It was heartbreaking to see my kids cry and suffer that she was leaving.  That was the hardest part for me, hands down. ( I didn't put the extra sad pictures on).  Goodbye Mia Sophia we love you!

My 14 Year Old Sydney

My attempt at a flip flop cake
Her new chair for her room

Yummy breakfast!

Oh how I love this girl!  Sydney is such a wonderful, beautiful, caring daughter.  She turned 14 on August 2nd which was a sunday (fast sunday) so we did her birthday breakfast in bed on saturday the 1st and she had requested Cheesy potatoes and a smoothie and that's exactly what she got.  Then her and I went shopping and she get a new purse and wallet, a papasan chair for her room, a new lamp.  Then on her real birthday she got a big picture frame to put her friends pictures in.  She also received great cards and lots and lots of goodies!! Holy cow we had so much sugar in our house.  Grandma G brought over homemade custom cupcakes in a very cute box ( she also took her shopping and to dinner for her b-day). She also received some $$ from Grandma and Grandpa Brereton.  She got a cake from Brooke M, yummy brownies from the Chapples and then I attempted to make a flip flop cake.  I did a few things wrong but it turned out okay I will know better for the next one though.  All in all it was a great weekend for her.  The next weekend she wanted to do something with her friends so we took them to the Arizona Grand resort and we had dinner, stayed the night in a suite, ate lots of junk food and then Hayley and I got up early and went running almost 5 miles (had to work off the junk food).  They we stayed and played at the resort water park.  It was so fun!  Happy Birthday Sydney!
