I'm an AUNT!!!

It's official...Lauren and Matt had their beautiful baby GIRL yesterday, August 26, 2008 at 2:22 p.m.. Her name is Mattison Brooke Skousen. She was a little chunky monkey weighing in at 10 pounds 1 ounce and 20 inches long! She is just so sweet and we love her sooo much!!! Let's just say that this little girl is going to be SPOILED! haha. Grandma has already bought her new clothes and everything! :) So i would post some pictures...but i can't get them on this computer yet. I posted just a few yesterday on Lauren's you should take a look. BUT we went to see her today and she looks so much different already! It's crazy! I just love holding her and cuddling with her, so much! :) I am definately going to be the favorite aunt! haha. So check within this week for pictures and more stories! We love you Mattison!!

A few weeks ago our family had a "Brooke's Reunion." It was alot of fun and i got to catch up with family that i had not seen in a very long time. The first day we went to Huntington Beach, which is our fav! We spent the day there and ended up having a bon fire and dinner. Fun, fun! Here are some pictures from the day...
Ally drew a heart in the sand. I like it! <3
Us girls by the ocean.
Just me and Jonni.
The next few days we just hung around our Grandma Clark's house and had yummy food and played games. It was a great weekend! (I will add a picture of the whole family when i get one.)


Each year, the Dodgers Stadium hosts a "Mormon Night." This year they were playing the Arizona Diamondbacks, and sadly the Dodgers lost (2 to 1)...honestly, it was a very boring game and therefore I found myself watching the people around me instead of the game, lol! We were a bit upset, because the Dodger's Stadium is set up really dumb and so it took us forever to get to our seats, so we missed Elder L. Tom Perry throwing the first pitch of the game! We still had a great time though!
All of us kids after the game...we decided to all get Dodger hats for the game.
"Root, root, root for the Dodger's...if they don't win it's a shame!" (which they didn't, haha.)
"IV REAL" If you have seen SYTYCD then you know what we are doing, haha. We love it!
Oh yes...the people behind us were SOOO very annoying!
Me and JJ. Me and Ally both painted our nails blue with the LA sign.
Us girls trying to blow a bubble. HAHA. Jonni laughed right after and her gum flew out and landed on a guy(from my singles ward too...oops) 2 rows ahead of us. It was so embaressing!
