Today In Pictures

Cade loves my new sunglasses!
I love them too. But I love my pink headband more. :)


I love this pic! From left to right, my adorably gorgeous niece Ali, (with unfortunately closed eyes) Missa, my niece who happens to double as a dear, dear friend, (and who is having a sleepover with me tonight - I love GNO's!) Tube Face, and my sissy Brookie.


Sweet Child 'O Mine with his fire truck. He looks adorable, of course, but he's been bad today, so really, he doesn't look quite as baby-hot as normal.

We were taking advantage of the sunshine today. You'd think it being May, we'd be used to the sun by now, but it still seems to be a rare commodity. Nice pic far away, but not so nice with the tubage close up.

These pictures weren't taken today, but while we were at my madre's, she had these family photos, so I snapped a pic of them, because I thought ya'll might wanna see my family. The glare is because it was behind glass. Pictured here are mis padres (in the center) and all of the ten kids around them. My cute twin brother is in the very center standing in the blue shirt, and I'm at the bottom somewhere. Five sisters and four brothers. Wow. I know.

Bran and Cade and I are in the top left hand corner. This is my entire immediate(ish) family: parents, siblings, in-laws, and nieces/nephews. Yeah, I know there are close to ten million of us. Cade is the youngest grandchild (though there are currently two more on the way) and he's number 27. I was a niece when I was five. I was just a bebe!

beautiful family! yours is even bigger than mine! wait, you might be sick of hearing that...but it's not something I get to say often. and Cade is looking so big!

Stacy said...

my fam is only half mormon... yours is like triple the size, literally. 3 kids. 9 grandkids, #10 on the way:-) (but seriously, mormons wait til they are married to have sex and once they start they just can't stop... obviously) he he!

no wonder you're a gorgeous girl. there are some really good genes in that fam of yours.
hope your sleep over rocks. I hope they your niece doesn't freeze your panties or stick your hand in warm water while you're sleeping. that would suck :-P
(can't you just feel my immaturity)

Hey Brie!
You do come from an attractive family and all your nieces and nephews are so cute. I love the picture of you and Brandon. Cade reminds me of Brandon in that picture a little bit. I will have to tend for you and Brando sometime.I miss Cade! I am coming down for a week. I will have to take Cade out to blow bubbles or something with Blake too.

Krista said...

Brie,
Cade is so adorable! You have a beautiful family. How old is Cade? He looks about the same age as Jaxon (21 months).

KC Elaine said...

the test is, can you name everyone in that big group picture?

it's me, t said...

i'm sorry to say, but cade is hotter in the glasses. if he were older i'd totally date him. :D

I have a scattered, dysfunctional family (I'm English and live in the US) and it was lovely to see yours.. Aw, so lovely. And you're a superstar about getting on with life with the tubeage.

Hey, I have a hot-sort-of-doc, too. he's not HOT hot, but he's cute and extremely smart, which is hot in my book :-)

Love Z

Hey, did I ever tell you that you look soooo good in that color blue? The one you were wearing in the family pics. How on earth did your family manage to get everyone from everywhere for that family picture? Was it a reunion? The Claypools have a butt load of people too, and we're having a reunion this summer in Spokane, but even then, not everyone can come. It's hard when you've got so much family scattered all over the dang place! Oh, and i looooove the sunglasses! Totally cool and look great on you! That guy Matt you keep stalking me and forcing me to go to these church events with him came by AGAIN yesterday and literally FORCED me to go the FHE with him, which of course, I hated. BUT.....he's being nice, I guess. I didn't have the balls to tell him to leave me the heck alone and that I don't find him attractive in the least. But I think, at this point, beggers can't be choosers, hey? Okay, gotta drive off to work. Love ya girl!

oops...typo...I meant to say, that guy Matt who keeps stalking me......

I am the expert on the family and yes Brie looks great in blue and yellow or pink or black and her new clear tape that holds the tubage in place is quite amazin. From 3 feet the tape is invisible. She continues to look hot! As one who knows, this girl is rockin. She is thinking up ways to be happy and positive. I am so proud of her. I also think my family is attractive but since I am biased I don't count. Thanks to you all for supporting and loving Brie.

Your family is huge and you are all very attractive. Sometimes I wish I had a big family, too. I have two younger sisters (18 and 21) who aren't close to me at all. Kinda sucks. Oh well. :)

Those sunglasses and the pink headband both rock!

eMiLy said...

cute pics....One of your sisters is in my stake and I see her often....I don't know her name I just knew it was a sister since you all look alike! And I saw her and another sister at the stotts farewell a bit ago... You have a super gorgeous fam!

Wow...lots of beautiful people. I'm so amazed at how your religion is so close when it comes to family. Please don't take that the wrong way...because it truly is amazing to see.

P.S. I love you, and now I'm scared that my comment may have offended, but I'll leave it there because it's my honest opinion.

P.S.S. Those glasses are hot and if I could borrow them for say ahh....43 years..that would be outstanding. Love you!

Shannon said...

Big families are awesome! I loved having tons of cousins and living close by my family. I am sad that I live so far from the rest of my sisters and their families. I hope that we visit often enough that my boys will know their cousins. Anyway glad you were enjoying the sunshine, us too!

The Cheese said...

Emily F, I'm pretty sure that if one of my sisters are in your stake, then all of them are - three of them live in Sandy and are from the same stake. My sister Tawnys in-laws are the Stotts, which would've explained the farewell - I know that's your old ward, so how random they saw you, huh? I have another sister in the Cottonwood Heights area and another in Saratoga Springs, maybe they might be in your stake? This is a mystery we need to figure out!

The Cheese said...

Ky, I could SO name them all, and in under a minute too, I bet. :)

Brittney said...

It is so crazy to see your family...I can't believe how many more there are now. I think I only knew four or five of your nieces and nephews and the ones I knew are all grown up! I was proud of myself because I can still name all your brothers and sisters...they all still look the same as they did when I remember seeing them last even your parents look the exact same...I guess your family age really well...that is lucky :)

Tanya said...

Brie,

can I just say you rock? You have a beautiful family and even with the tubage you are still gorgeous. Your love and strength shine through the annoying tube. I am so proud of you.
