Halloween with the Burnett's

Every year,
Tyler's sweet sister puts on a Halloween party. It is a night filled with lots of fun and belly laughs. This year she put together a minute to win it game. Peyton is "cleaning" up after a game that you play with kleenx. You try to pull all the tissues out of the box one at a time , but you can't put your hand inside of the box. Garrett is knocking over water bottles with a ball that is inside the panty hose attached to his head. Fun huh?! Thus the belly laughs!

Like a pro

Kyndra is riding a beautiful, sweet horse named Bree. (it's a boy) She of course it loving every minute. Thanks to my "cousin" shown in the corner we got to spent a great weekend riding horses. The only other time my kids get to ride horses is at the state fair. Compared to Bree, that is child's play.

my little cowboy

On Labor Day weekend, we got the opportunity to go to my uncle's ranch and ride horses. It was so much fun. I was totally nervous for Garrett to be on that huge animal (compared to Garrett) by himself, but he did great!!

First day of school

Garrett went to his first day of kindergarten on Monday and as you can see, he was excited!!! It feels really wierd to be dropping two kids off to school everyday. Luckily though, things are going really well for both Kyndra and Garrett, they both love their teachers, and as for me??? I love that school is back in. I love the routine the school year brings.

Garrett graduated from preschool this week and it was cute as cute can be!!! Our main objective for Garrett to be in preschool was to bring him out of his shell. Our plan worked!!! During graduation Garrett had to stand up in front of at least 100 people and do his speaking part loudly and clearly, and he did it!!! We were so proud of him. During the graduation "ceremony" the teacher showed a video of the kids throughout the year. One of the songs that played on the DVD was a song called, "let them be little". I'm here to tell you, it was a tear jerker. It was yesterday that he was born. I have to remind myself that they grow up so fast especially on the hard days.
We are looking forward to a fun summer with lots of time at the park, the pool and maybe the zoo. comes Garrett!!!!

The best Mother's day ever!!!

What better gift could a mother ask for than her kids to be happy, healthy, oh and a spa day. Peyton is working on my hair, while Kyndra and Garrett are working on my pedicure. I'm very grateful for my sweet kids. I think about a book I read a while ago called, "How to survive your greatest blessings". It was a funny book with some real true here and there throughout the pages. Being a stay at home mom is manotnous and mundane with very little reward at times, but also brings moments of pure joy. I'm so thankful that my Heavenly Father trusted me to be their mom and I pray I can do it well.

My future hall of famer

Garrett is playing T-ball and loving it. He tells everyone that he wins every game. (They don't keep score) We originally signed him up for tball to bring him out of his shell so he'll be ready for kindergarten. It's done that and more. He is really enjoying it. The kids start out the season by hitting off the T and by the end of the season they are being coach pitched and he hits it every time. I'm so proud of him, he is doing really well with his base ball skills and he is also opening up and talking to people more.
