My baby has turned 10 years old. Boy, how time flies.....Rylee got a Kindle Fire, a game for his Xbox, and a Case knife from us. This was the first time he had EVER had a spend-the-night party. He invited four of his buddies to stay the night.....Well, they stayed UP all night long.
Started the night with a quick visit to the park......
Rylee and Tad
The kiddos "rockin'" it out with Guitar Hero!
Rylee opening his gifts from his buddies.
Time for the family party/supper
Rylee requested his favorite cake.....a Sun-Drop Cake~yummy
Dirty Job BUT somebody had to do it.....glad it wasn't me! Caleb helped Taulbe cut the grass, and he got just alittle dirty in the process! Dusty from head to toe.....that just shows ya how dry it is in these parts.....need to do an Indian rain dance!
My dear friend, Charlotte, invited me to her church's first ever Ladies Night Supper. Each table was decorated with a different theme and beautifully decorated. We were treated with a delicious meal, inspirational speaker, and singing by her talented sister, Diane Rogers.
All the guests at Charlotte's Fruit of the Spirit table.....
Caleb had some friends over for a spend the night party. That night, we roasted marshmellows and hotdogs.....stayed up WaaaaaY too late......had a good ole' time! The next morning, I fed the "bottomless pits" then off to the train tracks and to the creeks! In the above pic, Bleu and Caleb swam across the creek to the other side to a little "island". They were sooo proud of their accomplishment! :)
Just hanging out with the guys! Notice the waterfall.....love it!
We always hafta make a trip to the train tracks....are they vibrating???Oh no! Run & hide!
Hangin' out at the campfire. Taulbe put up the tent, BUT everyone slept indoors.
Caleb's new bike! Also, he got to Case knives and a Peyton Manning jersey.
Growing up too fast! Can't believe he is 14~
He asked for a strawberry cheesecake....didn't last very long! YUMMY
The supplies needed to make a burlap wreath that is ALL the BuZZ around blogland! I had to make another trip to Michaels to get one more roll of burlap ribbon. Took about 2 hrs to achieve the finished product......which I LOVE!!!! Hard to explain how to do it! Make sure you use different size loops when pooking thru the rings of the wreath. You want the loops to be different sizes and going in different directions (or I did anyway). When you start and finish with a roll of burlap, tie it off with wire. I used 2 1/2 rolls of burlap. I attached the B using some twine I had on hand. I spent about 17.00 bucks making my wreath. I had two 40% coupons from Michaels which I applied towards the ribbon.
I LOVE the natural look of the wreath. Love using burlap around the house! Happy Wreath Making!
Welcome to the Barnett Family Blog. Taulbe and I have been married for 15 years, and we have two precious boys. Caleb is 13 and Rylee is 9. I currently returned to the working world as a 1st grade teacher after being at home for 12 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Also, I enjoy being a pretend photographer, decorating, and gardening. We have an extended family that lives outdoors and in a fish tank. The boys and I are CrAzy about our pets.I enjoy the simple things in life....playing in the dirt, sitting on the porch, holding hands on the couch, and an ice cold Sun-Drop. I think if you act like a kid...you will stay younger and live longer. I love watching a episode of Young and the Restless and lately curling up with a good book. I hope you find something interesting while looking at what I have been up too. Thanks for looking at our lives. :)
