What is Alyson thankful for?

My family..of course, they are wonderful and are always there when I need them. I'm especially thankful for my mom for being so strong to fight through all of her illnesses. Therefore I am especially thankful for my dad for being there to support my mom the way he does. We joke that earlier this year his name was nurse Don. That still cracks me up, but its so true. I am REALLY thankful for Kyra. She is a gift from God and he gave to me at just the right time in my life. She is the most wonderful blessing of all.

Next, I am thankful for the church and the gospel. I had a bit of a break and am sooooo glad to be back in and learning the truth! Its great to be able to have living prohets that give us the guidance we need to be back with Him someday.

I am very thankful to be living in the United States of America. I am greatful for opportunities this nation gives us. I am thankful for the soldiers fighting for this country. I believe that we live in the greatest nation ever and are living in the best times to live.

Now, on a not so serious note, I am thankful for the technology to express what I am most greatful for online for you to read. I am thankful for my sweet dogs and cat that are there everyday so excited when I walk in the door. I am thankful for my job to be able to work from home and watch Kyra grow up. I have not missed a beat with her and I would not trade that for the world. I am thankful for my brother and his girlfriend being there whenever I do need that break, lol.

I am really thankful for the primary children. I love sitting in Relief Society and listening to them sing their sweet songs. I will always melt when I hear certain primary songs. I am greatful for the nursery leaders. Without them, I could not ever pay attention in class.

I am thankful for my friends and my sisters in my sorority. They are always there when I need them. They are understanding and loving and ador Kyra. I am thankful for holidays and vacations. I'm thankful for the cold weather to cool my bones after a hot summer. I'm thankful for my healthy bones and immunity. I am also thankful for Kyra's health.

There is so much more that I am thankful for I simply cannot say it all. Lastly I am thankful for you reading all the way to the end. Have a great rest of the weekend.

My big laundry helper

I love that my daughter loves laundry. She likes do put clothes in the wash, take them out, put in them in the dryer, and take them out. She loves it when there is a sock that tries to hide in the back of the machine, because then she can get in, and I mean in, to get it out. Here's my little helper in action.

Lions and toddlers and bears, OH MY

Thursday, Kyra's play group went on a date to the Yellow River Game Ranch. That was her first time there and I'm pretty sure we'll be going back...soon. We had a great time! Kyra liked feeding the goats, pigs, deer, and more. We walked/strolled around a mile long trail and pet and fed lots of animals. Now that Kyra is in nursery, she is getting to know the kids in the ward her age. I'm so glad we made it out to this one!

I loved this little guy, well there was nothing little about him except for his wobbly legs.
I felt so sorry for the porker!

Kyra feeding goats

Feeding more goats

This deer might start eating Kyra if he doesn't get that cracker!
We can't wait to go back and do it all over again.

Pumpkin Patch

We visited the pumpkin patch earlier last month. I took a break from unpacking to pet the bunnies and Kyra a great time. We didn't pick out a pumpkin though. As much as i wanted to, I'm not that big into carving them. I think next year we will start it and hopefully keep it up. I love roasted seeds yummy and pumpkin pie. Hmmmm, maybe I should just go get a pumpkin now. I'm getting hungry.

Not so spooky nights

So I have a born to be trick or treater. My little hunny pot and I went trick or treatin with some friends of mine. We had such a blast. I dressed up too as Tinky Winky, which I'm sure you know who I'm talking about if you have children. Kyra strolled along knocking on the doors, sticking her purple bucket out or taking the candy herself, then said thank you and bye bye to everyone. It was priceless.

Kyra and I went to the Washington Farms corn maze the previous weekend. I dressed her up that weekend too since I couldn't decide on which costume to buy. So that night she was Cheer Bear. She even had a little tail and heart on her back side. She didn't like to leave the hoods up on either costume, what a bummer.

Then mommy is a woman of many costumes as well. Later Halloween I went to my brothers costume party. Kyra spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa to let me have a night out. It was so much fun. We had a pinata and by the time it was my turn the roap broke, so I then demolished it on the ground. It was hilarious. So now i have a bunch of crushed suckers and rieces cups, yummy.

I love Halloween every year, but I will definately look forward to it more and more as Kyra gets older. I love dressin her up :)
