Chance Made Us Brothers; Hearts Made Us Friends

Brinton is the BEST big brother and Tally adores him and wants to do everything he does. I think they are going to be good friends!

Boys Name Sakes

Most might thing that Brinton & Talmadge are different names.....well they came from one person!! Matt's Poppy: Talmage Brinton Burbidge. I think it is neat that their names have a story behind them. I guess if we have a girl we will name her Burbidge and call her Burbie.......yeah right!!

STINK EYE......Thanks Grandma Cece taught him this....too cute I tell ya!

First Day of Kindergarten

Ready to head off to school. I was a mess.....a ball of nerves, afraid I would start bawling at school. Thank goodness he has such an incredible teacher. But me right at ease - WE LOVE SCHOOL!

In front of the school - Home of the Teddy Bears! So cute for an elementary I think!

In front of his class........Mrs. Christiansen is FANTASTIC!

CrAzy HaIr cute!

Purses and Beads....Should we be Nervous? Naaaah, he is all BOY!

Dog Bite

The day before school was to start, Brinton was playing at a friends and their dog bit him. As you can see it got his lip and nose and he got a little black eye and his face was swollen.
This just confirmed we will probably never be dog owners!! Poor Brinton - he was a trooper though! Love this kid!

Brinton Tries Out Stuff On His Own

I guess there comes a time when kids want to do things on their own and this summer was full of first for Brinton. He said he is 5 now, it is time to comb his own hair so I let him and I let him wear it for several days, knowing he would likely get sick of it and he did - but I still thought he was pretty cute!

Combing Hair

Figuring Out What Clothes Look Good Together
Don't know why but ties were a big thing for about a week at our house. Again, I knew he would get sick of it - but he is still cute!

How cute is a little boy in a chef hat cute and so interested in learning. He loves to cook......mainly cause he loves food.

Organizing the Garage
I guess I taught him well.........he came in to get me telling he organized the garage. I LOVED IT - made me so proud!! Love organized stuff.....what a good boy!
