San Antonio, TX – CWVFF


The 1st annual Christian Worldview Film Festival was held this March in San Antonio, TX. John-Clay was one of the 33 speakers at the guild and he had a part in 5 of the films that were entered. So, with that brief history, our family drove the 7hrs down for the closing ceremonies and presentation of the awards last Saturday! Our family has been pretty scattered this month so we were excited to be all together and take a trip for the weekend!

We got to meet lots of great people John-Clay has worked with this past year and see some familiar faces again too!

John-Clay’s Haiti project won best Promotional Film and Awakened won Best Documentary!

Sunday morning before we headed home, our good friend and host while we were in TX, treated us to a delicious breakfast at IHOP.

We had a great time! It was neat to go and be able to support John-Clay and see the impact God has given him on so many lives in the filmmaking world!

Camp fires, marshmallows, wind, and family…


We went to Okmulgee again this year for our traditional family camping trip. We were so glad everyone got to come and be there! We had a total of 5 tents and 6 vehicles. So here’s lots of pictures from the trip for ya…DSC_0017
“How do we put this tent up?” 1 tent up, 4 more to go.

Benj brought along his blow-up boat and took some pretty exciting trips out in the lake! Let’s just say the wind really picked up and wasn’t blowing towards shore like normal. =/

Maggie was excited to be there but didn’t get to do alot because of having mono. She is a trooper! 

We thoroughly enjoyed having Granny and Granddad come down on Friday to spend the day with us.

Telling big stories!

Friday afternoon we played lots of baseball, catch, and croquet in the field by our camp site cause it was a lot less windy over there! =D

Playing out-field.

We brought Calli along for the first time! She went crazy over the waves, I guess she thought they were alive!

Playing 42 at night by the light of the lantern, oh yeah!

We took the games to the tent so we the cards wouldn’t blow away. =) The wind blew so hard that the lake was white-capping 3 days in a row. =)

Saturday evening we went on a hike, it was gorgeous!

It was beautiful to sit and watch the sunsets and stars every night.

Jammin it up and singing silly songs is one of our highlights! =)

Abbie and her “pet”. =)

While we were packing up on Sunday, we saw 2 bald eagles across the lake!

Happy Fall from the Burnett family!

Crunch…Crunch… BANG!


The crisp fall mornings really get us itchin’ to go deer hunting!! You can just feel it, and smell it in the air. Carinna worked hard to get two places cleared for food plots! This is a view from one of the tree stands.

We’ve been checking the trail cameras and getting some really interesting and exciting pictures!
We’ve got two crazy deer with only half racks! Each on the opposite side. It’s strange.

Well, hello there! Hope you’re still around in a couple years. =)

=D =D =D

Oh, we also get people once in a while too =D

This was Carinna’s last year to hunt during youth season so she really wanted to get something. And much to her delight she got a doe! Maggie would be hunting too, but she’s laid up on the couch with mono! =(

Cutting up lots of meat!DSC_0195DSC_0194

For the first time we attempted making summer sausage! Carinna did a wonderful job! It. Is. DELICIOUS! She’s a pro. but the recipe’s top secret, sorry. You’ll just have to come visit us so you can taste some. =D

It’s complete with a cracker, mustard, cheese and pickles! She also made some amazing jerky. We change the flavors up a little every year and this is some of the best!

While this is just the beginning of deer season, Abbie and Carinna are just now getting over the poison ivy they got while picking possum grapes! Poor girls, they’ve been miserable.

Here’s some random pictures of Carinna and I posing for some B-Roll John-Clay was filming for a documentary. Sometimes, it’s hard to be serious. =)Screen Shot 2013-10-15 at 12.29.11 AMScreen Shot 2013-10-15 at 12.29.30 AM

The past several weeks….


…we’ve been really busy! But with lots of great things. =)

Kimray (where Dad and Caleb work) celebrated their 65th year with a festival for their employees and families! Lots of fun rides, good food, and fellowship.
The Ferris wheel was a big hit!
=)caleb and charitymaggie and calebhavin fun

We threw a party for our Great-Aunt Anna’s birthday! She has been a huge blessing to our family! She is a lot of fun to be around, she is the life of the party, she loves to bake food and give it away, and she is an encourager. Happy Birthday, Aunt Anna!

Dad and Grandma playing with cat’s cradle. Jacob’s ladder, tea cup, Eiffel tower, broom, seesaw …
Maggie and Grandpa

We are remodeling one of our bathrooms, so some friends came and helped us pour concrete to redo the foundation! We were so grateful for the help. More on that project later.

Last week, we had a family reunion of sorts! Lots of our family came to see Grandma and Grandpa so we got some pictures together!

Family picture.

All the girl cousins.

Cousins…are the best!dsc_0044

Grandma is making a butterfly quilt for each of her granddaughters! So we were all busy sewing on the hankies. You get some really pretty hankies and fold them to look like butterflies, then hand embroidery around it and embroidery a head and antennas! Sorry I don’t have a picture of a finished one.DSC_0074

And last but not least… John-Clay is in Haiti for a film project! We all wish we could be there too, but as you can tell he’s having a really good time! Keep him in your prayers!

Until next time…

Ps. 91:1-4    "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
