Cloud Family Photos!

  Yes, my maiden name was Cloud.  I traded in Cloud for the masculine, BROCKMAN …which came with my kindergarteners calling me Mrs. Broccoli.   I loved my old last name, but am totally kidding and absolutely love the man that came with my new name.  We hired a college friend of mind, Stephanie, to do our family pics this year.  She was so sweet with our crazy kiddos and did a fabulous job!

It is always hectic getting everyone together this time of year, especially when the Highland Park Scots are in the HS football playoffs!   My brother in law (far right above) coaches for the HP football team and they won a playoff game the night before we had these taken.  He came for about 15 min and went right back to preparing for the next game.  He is a wonderful coach and we all love getting together to go to the games.  It’s also fun seeing Tony Romo every now and then at the games and watching Jerry Jones’s helicopter take off after a game.  They have won state two years in a row and this year they made it 3!  Congrats Tristan!


Happy 3rd Birthday Tessa

I can’t believe Tessa is turning three!  She has such a unique and hilarious personality and bring such joy our lives.  I am actually writing this post a few days early because we are leaving to go to Disneyland for her Birthday this week!  I can’t wait to see the looks on the kids’ faces when we tell them we are going!  I will share some of our trip on my instagram if you want to follow along.  Seeing Tessa’s face and Ty’s too when we get there is going to be priceless.

I love doing videos for the kids on their birthdays so I posted one that I did last spring of Tessa and me.  I hope you enjoy it!

We Remember


I still remember being in my 10th grade Physics class and seeing the fear on a teacher’s face as she rushed in and said, turn on the news.  We all watched in disbelief as the towers came tumbling down to the ground.  I felt helpless and horrified at how something so terrible could happen to so many innocent lives.  Today we remember and honor those who lost their lives and their families.  I know this day is hard for so many families across America.  We pray for continued peace.
