A Broadhead Year!

It's been forever since we've updated our blog, so I guess it's time.
So we've decided to remind you what the Broadheads did this year.

Nothing too event full happened in January. We brought in the New Year with our friends Clint and Kamille.

This was a fun month. We got away for eight days on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera. We had such a wonderful time. In each port we wanted to do something different. So in Cabo San Lucas, (we have been there before) we first went and ate at Cabo Wabo...and made sure we had the Waburrito. Okay it's the best thing ever. We've had it before, so we had to go back. HEAVEN ON A PLATE. (if you like Mexican food) Then we took a Rhino ATV adventure, and went through the desert and down to a beach front. That was so much fun, although super dusty....but so worth it.
In Puerto Vallarta (I know I'm not sure on the spelling.) Our tour was cancelled because of our ship had to rearrange the order of our port stops. But we really wanted to do what we had planned. So we were some of the first off the ship and made our way over to a little stand and booked the adventure we wanted to do. We got to go into the jungle and zip line. Over 1000 feet in the air. It was so much fun. However we were pushing it close getting back to our ship....we were the second to last tender boat back in. That was so scary.
In Acapulco...we went snorkeling...and shopping....and In Ixtapa..we went shopping and we walked along the beach looking for seashells. We had such a great time. The ship was awesome.
Elle stayed home with Grandma Elaine, and Papa. They are such great parents to have watched her for us. That was our February.

Dave turned 30!

April you remember April...that's pretty numb to me.

I cut my hair off.



We also spent time going to the zoo.

And at all the Jazz playoff home games. GO JAZZ!

Dave and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. We didn't do anything too big. We went to dinner and a movie. While Elle got to spend the night at her cousins house. That was her first sleepover. During the middle of the night she got scared and woke up...and tried to ex cape their house. So needless to say she hasn't been ready for another sleep over to any ones but grandmas.
I turned 26 on the 3rd.... And Dave bought me a new T.V. Yes I really wanted it too.
At the End of June my parents took us to Disneyland, along with my sisters and their families. I believe there were 19 of us. We had a great time.

Bear Lake!
We went up to Bear Lake for Dave's families annual "reunion". We had a good time. Although while playing some water sports I bursted my eardrum and was in a huge amount of pain. "It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt."

Elle also turned 3 on the 10th of July. She had a "Pink" party. And she was most excited to wear her party hat.

Elle competed in the Miss American Starlet Pageant
She didn't place, and that's okay. This was her first pageant. However she was chosen to be in their ca lander...She is Miss March 2008

Elle's cousin Alexa also competed in the pageant. (not against each other.) Alexa won the swimsuit competition, and placed in the top 15. GO LEXI.

At the end of August Kandis B. Designs made their debut at Buyers Fashion Week in Vegas. Kamille Bauer went with and helped so much. I'm so grateful for her selling energy! She's amazing.
While in Vegas we took advantage of the fun. We were given VIP passes to Pure the night club, and so we went dancing one night.
We went and saw KA at the MGM one night...and we made sure we ate at some really awesome places too. We had a good time. It was a fun week to spend away...especially with my best friend!

Elle started preschool
Her teachers name is Miss Hollie.
She loves her school.

Circus time! My parents once again out did themselves and took everyone to the circus. Elle had a fun time! Here is some silly pictures!

Halloween was fun, as Elle dressed up as Princess Aurora. She's so pretty!

Witches Night Gardner Village.
I was invited to go with a bunch of Women...and it was so much fun. My friend Heidi pretty much won the costume competition. She was a hoot!

Elle is bringing out the silly in us...she is so much fun...and always insists on making funny faces.

This month we also started something we call "Family Movie Night" Family movie night is always on Fridays. We make a big bed with lots of blankets and pillows. And we watch a movie we haven't seen...or haven't seen in a long time. We pop popcorn, and have candy...and spend time with eachother. Elle really looks forward to it, and always asks what movie we are going to watch next.

We spent Thanksgiving at Daves Parents house this year. Carolyn and Anthony came in from Colorado and it was nice to visit with them.

We tried to make the holiday season as special as we could for Elle. We made Gingerbread houses. We relinquished all control and let Elle do her own thing. She loved the frosting part.

Christmas Day was so magical for Elle. The look on her face was so special. She was excited about everything.

Now on to 2009!
We hope your Holidays were amazing...and your year was great too.
We hope that Next Year is great too!
