Kyla's 11th Birthday!

Kyla turned 11 goodness how time flies!! I always get so sentimental on my kids' birthdays...remembering their births and cute things they used to do! One of my favorite memories of Kyla is when she was about 18 months old (during march maddness!) Tony taught her how to say "Dipsy-doo dunkaroo" as made famous by Dick Vitale, but her's came out more of "ipsy-oo unker-oo". It was about the cutest thing ever! And Tony was one proud papa!:) Anyway, we are so lucky to have her as a daughter. She really is such a big helper around the house and with her brothers! She's very artistic and loves anything artsy. She is a good friend and is usually a pretty happy person to be around. It's a lot of fun to watching her growing into such a wonderful young woman (aaarrrggghhh...did I just say that...not ready...not ready...not ready!!) We love you Kyla, and we're so proud that you're our daughter!

Last Night's Dinner Conversation!

Eli was being a goof at the table last night which is nothing new!

Tony: "Eli, the squirrels are coming!"
Eli: "What, why?"
Tony: "Because they think you're nuts!"

Unstopable laughter erupted from our dinner table. It was one of those nights!:) Anyway, after the kids finally settled down from their laughing fits this was the conversation:

Rhett (my 3 year old): "Eli, the squirrels are coming!"
Eli: "why?"
Rhett: "Because you're nuts....STILL!"

Even Better!

I looked out my window after I posted the pictures of our tree and realized it was even more beautiful today than it was Saturday when I took the pictures below so I had to take some more and show you how much it has changed in the last 2 days! I LOVE the colors!

Our beautiful tree!

When we purchased our tree this summer I made sure that it was going to turn some beautiful colors for the fall. That was one of my many demands for our tree!:) Anyway, he has not let down. The leaves are stunning!! I can't wait until next fall when the tree will be older and hopefully have more leaves that will be turning these beautiful colors!! Just look at that!

Caleb scored Advanced!

So all the students who scored advanced in at least 1 area got to ride on a float in the homecoming parade a couple of weeks ago (I know I'm a slacker blogger!!). Caleb not only scored advanced in math he scored perfect in 2 of the 4 areas in math and the other 2 were really high as well. That kid is a math wiz! Just thought I'd post a couple of pictures of the parade and brag about my boy for a minute!:)
He's the one towards the middle with the black shirt on!
