And the Winner Is....

I got a call last weekend from the Reflections Chair and she told me that they were going to have an assembly to announce the winners of Reflections. She was so excited on the phone, going on and on about Hunter's entry and how she would hang it on her wall, etc. She also told me that Hunter had won, she said that it's fun for the kids to not know until the assembly so I kept it a secret. My Mom was able to get out of school a little early and Jess came over to watch the little ones. It was SO fun to know that he won and him not having a clue. They called his name and he was shocked...it was so cute. He said "Is that ME Mom?" Heck yes it's you...go up!:) I'm so proud of my sweet Hunter...he was also the only kindergartner that won!

This is our first year doing reflections...the theme is "What does Diversity mean to you?" I told Hunter (in simple terms) what Diversity means and then picked out some projects from pinterest that went with the theme and let him choose. This is what he chose. He sorted the crayons in the order he wanted them in (I hot glued them exactly how he had them) and then he got the blow dryer and did the rest. I think he did such a great job!


Halloween was SO much fun this year! It was on a Monday this year so Hunter got to dress up for school and march in a parade with all of his little classmates. He looked so cute!
For lunch we had Pumpkin Pancakes, I let the kids decorate their own (except Jagger:) and they thought that was the best thing ever!
For dinner we had "Mummy's" aka pigs in a blanket, they thought that was pretty cool too:)
Chris was out of town for three days so he wasn't able to join us for all of the festivities but my Mom and Aunt Jess went Trick or Treating with us. It was such a beautiful night and not cold, which is always a plus. The kids got a TON of candy which the next day they took to the Dentist (he sends the candy over seas to all of our troops, way cool!) who paid them a dollar a pound...they made $7.00 bucks. 
It was such a great Halloween!


Last year we got tickets to go to Cornbelly's but they day we wanted to go in got rained out so they sent us tickets for this year. We decided to go after I took the Family Pictures. Chris stayed home with Jagger so he could do homework so Skyla, Hunter and I went up with Uncle Mike and Aunt Jess. We had the BEST time!

 Skyla was SO funny with this horse, I don't think I have EVER seen a smile so big!
