Favorite part of my day

Keir had just gotten home from kindergarten, Myla was asleep exhausted from playing hard in the sun with Iris. I had just woken up when Keir got home. Exhausted myself. (I came home from work early not feeling great.) I popped me some popcorn and Keir got a popsicle. We got the blanket out of the car and spread it out on the lawn while we talked about his day and what he did at school. I ate my popcorn and he had his popsicle...which tasted like a tigers blood snow cone! He let me try some of his, so then I had to get my own. Although mine didn't taste like his. It tasted like soap. Bummer. Keir climbed in the tree and swung like a monkey as I lay on the blanket reading my book enjoying the warm sun, crisp blue sky and a beautiful green-leafed cover tree. It smelled of grass and I felt better (for a little bit.)This moment was the favorite part of my day!

We made Keir some tags and we went to the grandparents houses and Keir sold his cookies! (He wanted to go door to door, but we told him sundays aren't a good selling day, so lets practice with the family). He made $14. After that I thought maybe I'll start selling cookies. Grandparents can never say no to someone as cute as Keir. They were awfully generous. I hope Keir continues to have this much ambition. I love it and think it's totally Awesome!! Way to go buddy. You make me so proud!!

P.S. The bar code says, "ya thats good." John is so cleaver!


Keir decided that he wanted to start selling cookies to raise money so that he can go to Disneyland. We decided to call them KEiR's KOOKiES. He wants to make all kinds of cookies and sale them door to door. I don't know why all of the sudden he want to be a salesman and entrepreneur, but hey if that's what he wants then I say lets do!! So if you want to buy any of
Let me know we'd be happy to make you some :)

We made DELICIOUS Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies today. Grandpa & Grandma and Nana & Papa look out cause you are most likely to be the first to sale too!

Real Soccer Game

Last night John and I went with Seth, Emmy, Bryan and Rachel to the Real Soccer Game! It was fun, other then the fact that I was STARVING and tired, that combo always makes me a little grouchy. Real WON!! They played the NY Redbulls. The score was 1 to 0! Boo Yeah! Can't wait to go again, when my tum-E tum tum is full and I am well rested!

Mr. Sickly

My poor little Bubba, every time he gets a cold it turns into the nasty croup. I just hate it. I feel so helpless. I was making me a protein shake, blending it in the blender and he coughed, it was so loud and masculine I jumped. It freaked me out. I thought there was a man in the house. So today is our lazy day where we went to the redbox and rented some DVD's so he could lay around and try to get better. I guess no preschool for tomorrow. Love him, wish he wasn't Mr. Sickly.

1st Day of Preschool

Today was Keir's 1st day of preschool and he did Fabulous! I decided this year to put him in the afternoon, I think that was a good choice. He is NOT a morning person. All morning he kept saying, "I don't want to go to preschool, I hate preschool. I don't feel good I think I need to stay home." By lunch time he was fine and ready to go! He was happy!

(it was a difficult task to get these two to look at the camera at the same time. As you can see it never happened!)

Preschool Tomorrow!!

Holy Cow I can't believe Keir is starting preschool tomorrow. He has grown so much from last year. He is such a smarty but he is very stubborn! I've tried working with him on his letters and I was getting no response. I finally just bought the Leap Frog's Letter Factory, Lets go to School, and Talking Words Factory. Can I just say... He immediately picked it up. He started making the sound of the letter and then saying the letter that makes that sound! Today we were playing outside with the sidewalk chalk and he started writing letters. It was so exciting for me to see that he does listen, just not to me! (Hey, that made me think of an idea, I will just make movies of me telling him what to do and how to do it... maybe it'll work?) Anyway... I took pictures and here they are...
Keir's "J"
That's an "O" "i" "H"
His "Q"

Way to go good buddy. I am so proud of you! I can't wait for you to continue to learn and grow. You are going to do great at preschool! Love you Lots! XOXXO!

Where did summer go?

Our summer went by so fast. Maybe it did because we were so busy having fun and taking care of a sickly. Here is just a little of what our summer consisted of...
Myla sporting her new swimsuit.
In St George swimming with Montana
The sickly, John. He was sick for over a month I swear. It was not fun!
Toenail painting parties
Making new buddies. Keir and Braden

I can't believe summer is over. We had a fabulous summer. There is just one thing we haven't done and that is go camping! I really want to go. When I was a little girl we would go all the time! I loved it, it was camping in a trailer, which is different then a tent. I'll take a tent at this point though!~
Just because summer is over doesn't mean we have to stop having fun....

Myla's Piggy Tails

Yay, Myla's hair is finally long enough to do something with it. It's so fun to do. I think she looks so cute and grown up!

Myla is getting so big. She like to give "5" now, She says "Uh-oh" when she drops something, She says "Jesus" when she sees his picture, and after she gives you a kiss she says, "I Love You". It is so sweet and We love her to bits and pieces.

Keir, Grandpa and Their Garden

Keir LOVES helping Grandpa whether it's mowing the lawn or gardening, you name Keir is there to help. This year Keir is helping Grandpa with the garden. He got to help him plant the plants and now he is helping take care of them and he is doing a great job!
Helping get the dirt ready to plant.
Helping get the weeds out of the strawberries.
A fun four-wheeler Ride.
This is my FAVORITE!! Just hanging out with Grandpa by the fire. They like to roast marshmellows and hot dogs.

and the peas.

They are all growing and getting big!
