ACU Homecoming

Last weekend we headed to Abilene to celebrate ACU Homecoming and spend time with Bryan's family. It is always convenient to go to Abilene during homecoming weekend - we get the best of both worlds of seeing friends and celebrating ACU and seeing family.
Friday Bryan played in the ACU Homecoming golf tournament, so Brylee and I joined Bryan's mom and walked around ACU, visited Papa in the Ag dept, and spent time around the campus center.

Friday night we headed to the Homecoming Carnival and had a blast playing games and feeding the animals! Brylee wasn't so sure about Willie the Wildcat

Saturday morning we headed to the Homecoming Parade! We had a lot of fun, and Brylee was pretty mesmerized by the parade!

We were all exhausted by the time the weekend was over! Bryan and I went to the football game while Brylee napped, and we enjoyed family time Saturday night and Sunday at church.
ACU will always hold a very special place in our hearts!

10 Weeks From Today...

...I will have TWO children!
 I woke up this morning realizing it was Wednesday, 10 weeks away from our scheduled C-section. So far my third trimester is going well. I have felt fairly good, occasionally feeling bad after dinner and before bed. I am not that "sleepy," but boy am I exhausted by the end of the day. Being pregnant with a toddler is a bit more challenging than my first pregnancy.
I am very excited about welcoming this child into the world. We are doing our best of introducing the idea of a baby sister to Brylee. She knows "baby sister" is in Mama's belly and will point to my belly or kiss it. But I'm not sure she has made the connection that an actual newborn will be joining us soon. And to be honest, I'm not sure I've really even wrapped my mind around the idea of having a newborn join our family in 10 weeks.
I have a feeling these next 10 weeks are going to fly by. Here is a quick run-down of our lives in the next 10 weeks: Halloween weekend & parties, a small friends baby shower, rotary bowling fundraiser, our church's annual "Love Where You Live" Sunday, Brylee's B-day party, trip to Atlanta, Thanksgiving, Brylee's actual birthday, Trip to NYC, Bryan's 1/2 marathon, Brokaw family Christmas, actual Christmas weekend, my parents come to town, New Years Day....then Baby! It seems a little overwhelming & crazy when I list it all out.
And if you haven't heard, Baby Brokaw has a name...
Lynlie Kayte Brokaw
So unless I go into labor early, on Wednesday January 2nd we will become a family of FOUR! So the countdown begins....

Arboretum Pumpkin Patch

Last week Brylee and I headed to the Arboretum on my day off. It was a little warmer than I had hoped for a fun day at the pumpkin patch, but we still enjoyed ourselves! Enjoy these sweet smiles!
