Our week in pictures

Landon has started this new thing where he walks around with a wipe and blows his nose. He thinks its funny, it actually kind of is, but I am glad he knows how to blow his nose. It sure helps. No more of the booger suckers! Also he has been using his Cowboy hat to carry the wipes around the house when he is not using them.

Happy Thanksgiving! I didn't get a whole lot of pictures this day.

On Saturday night Jared had the idea to take Lanny to McDonald's play place for the first time. He absolutely loved it! (As any kid would) He had such a good time. When the older kids came and started shoving Jared and telling him to crawl through the tunnels faster, we decided it was time to go. We didn't want Lanny to get hurt. I must admit that Lanny did really good when we left. He didn't want to leave but there were no tantrums. Thank You!

Get better soon Lex and Jordan, we would like you to join us next time!

New Post

Okay, my new post is actually after the "Frustration" post because I started working on it before but I couldn't get the pics to work. Anyway it is now up, just down the list a little.

Okay, so I have tried to update my blog twice now and I am unable to upload photos. I have a post ready, it just needs pictures. I will let it rest for a few days and try again later. So be sure to check again soon.

Also, those of you who have sound and speakers, I appologize I have not updated my music. I don't even remember what is on my list. Jared got me my own computer so we don't have to share anymore and, it doesn't have sound so I totally forget I have music. If you just turn the volume down you can have a computer like me and then I don't need to worry about the play list :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just want you to know that I am grateful for many, many things (I don't want to bore you with my list) but I am really grateful for my wonderful loving husband and my sweet baby boy! I don't know what I would do with out you 2. Thanks for all you do! I love you!

I FiNaLlY got the computer to cooperate, it was actually one of my pics wouldn't load, so here is the post that just needed the photos.
I totally forgot that I had pictures of the boys playing in the leaves at my house. So here are the fun pictures of us (them) playing in the leaves.
Landon got a little distracted by Shilo (my Dad's cat) Here he is, still distracted. He loves cats. Christian, once again, enjoyed throwing the leaves up into the air. Whenever a car, truck, or any type of automobile drives by, Landon loves to wave to them. So if you ever drive by and we are outside, watch for Landon's wave.
Cute boys! They sure enjoy playing and spending time together.
This is the night before we left to California for Kylie and Cody's wedding. If you know me, you know that I wait until the absolute last minute to get things done...well...I still needed to put the crafts and signs together for the Open House my friend was holding while we were gone and I still needed to pack Lanny, Jared, and Myself. For dinner we had taco soup and I did not need this delay at all! But figures, with my luck, it happened. I am glad to say I got the things put together everything packed and we left just in time. I only forgot my wedding ring. I know, that is kind of an important thing, but atleast I didn't forget our underwear or something like that!

Our Favorite Fall Activity!

What a thoughtful idea; my Dad raked his leaves and asked if the boys wanted to play in them. So we took him up on the offer and here's what happened:

On our way to Grandma and Grandpa's house to play in the leaves.

It took Lanny a little minute before he realized what to do.

Christian loved to throw the leaves up and watch them fall down again.

As you can see the leaves need to be raked up again.

Landon is sitting on the shovel as we are trying to pick up all the leaves and put them in the bag.

Christian found a nice hide out!

All in all we had a great time and when we were done, Heather and I cleaned up the leaves for our Dad. Thanks for the fun time Grandpa!

Grandpa at the Zoo!

Can you believe it! We got Grandpa to the zoo.

Now that the weather has cooled down a little, my Dad agreed to go to the Zoo with us. Heather and Christian were in town, so we all went together. We really had a great time. The best thing about having a Zoo pass, you can go and leave when you want. You don't have to worry whether you saw all the animals or not, because there is always next time! We just go and when the kids
are ready to leave, we leave.
I sure enjoy spending so much time with my Dad lately. He doesn't work any more and if you didn't know, we live across the street from him and my Mom. So, any errands I need to run, I see if my Dad needs to run any and we go together. Most of the time he's helping me more than I'm helping him.
Dad, I'm glad you don't work anymore, except at trying to keep up with me and Lanny! I sure love seeing you and spending so much
time with you. Thanks!
We went the week after Halloween so the Zoo was still decorated festively. Of course we had to take full advantage of the picture opportunities.

It seems like every time I go to the Zoo I learn or see something new. This is the closest that we have ever seen the tiger. Also, I don't know if it's male or female, but whatever it is seemed to be longing for a companion. It just kept letting out this sad, moaning, cry. (Something I've never heard in my entire life and I'm sure I'll never hear it again) I didn't know they could sound like that!
Landon absolutely loved the water ball monument thing. I have never let him play in it before, but boy it was tough getting him away from it!
