Father son campout/ random pictures

My princesses came into my bed one morning after Kyle left for work. So cute to see them snuggling!
My handsome little man all ready for bed=) The turkey is his sleep buddy every now and then.
Looking good for church
Our church does a father and son camp out each year, but since my dad does not go to church.....he Kyle and Carson went on their own camp out. I love this picture of Carson riding in the front. I know it is so good for him to get some male bonding time.........without all of us girls!
He got to do some fishing
And hang out by the fire with lots of snacksThe girls and I stayed home and went shopping and out to eat with my mom. We had a great time. Kylie and Lexi enjoy playing dress up together. Kylie gets herself all dressed up, and then she dresses up her sister. It is sooo cute!
One night Kylie insisted on wearing her princess dress to bed. So here is our sleeping beauty!

Mother's Day and cupcakes

My kids and I on mother's day! They were so good to me. I love them more than they will ever know, and I think it is great to have a day to celebrate motherhood. It is hard work to be a good mom........and exhausting too!
I am also grateful to be able to show my gratitude to my own mom on this day.
I woke up to beautiful flowers, pretty slippers in my favorite color, and a new set of pots and pans. Thanks to my kids and their dad for treating me so well that day!!
Also, I feel so lucky to have made some great friends here in Idaho. My one friend and I have been on a mission to find a great cupcake. They all look so pretty, but don't seem to taste as good as we hope. She made some last month..........and they were fabulous. I was changing my clothes one night when she called and told Kyle she was bringing us some cupcakes. I was laughing, because I had just put on my cupcake jammies! What a coincidence. Kylie and Alexis were still awake to sample the yumminess! I had a hard time saving one for Carson.......but I did! They were the best we've had yet.
I have put on my cupcake jammies a few times since.......but I haven't had any more treats magically appear right after. I guess I need to buy a new pair!

Pre-School Graduation

All ready for kindergarten!!! Kylie and Carson graduated from pre-school. A few other moms and I took turns teaching the kids at home. Kyle was impressed at how much they learned in this short amount of time. They both can write their name and they know the alphabet along with the phonics of each letter. We went on several fun field trips and made lots of fun crafts. It was a success, and it would be fun to do it again sometime.
They had a program for all the parents
The girls jumping on the trampoline
The kids all sang a couple of songs for us, and one of their teacher's read each of their favorite things as she handed them a diploma. She had come over a few days before to ask them some questions and get their handprints. I will put their answers at the bottom. So cute!!
Hot can you go wrong with those!
The boys playing in the rocks
more yummy food
this is what we brought
It was a privilege for me to participate in teaching my own kids, along with a few others. Kylie and Carson really blossomed, and it was fun to watch them make friends and learn so much in such little time. These were their questions and answers..........
Favorite Color? Kylie: Purple, Carson: Blue and Orange ( I am sure that has nothing to do with BSU)
Favorite Food? Kylie: hot dogs, Carson: Macaroni and cheese
Favorite thing to do? Kylie: Color, Carson: go to Disneyland
Favorite thing about preschool? Kylie: Writing letters, Carson: making stuff
When I grow up I want to be? Kylie: just like my mom, Carson: a shooter
The last answer was my favorite. I am sure Kylie will want to be something more exciting than just like me, but I couldn't ask for a better compliment from her. That is the nicest thing she could ever say. Melted my heart for sure! And as far as Carson's answer................I am not so sure how I feel about that one. ha.ha.
