Spring or Winter?

I woke up this morning and was not so fond of what I saw...SNOW! I enjoy the snow, but since we have been having such good weather it's hard to go back to snow. Anyway here are a few pics of the boys playing outside last week in the nice weather. Grandpa brought them squirt bottles over and they were entertained forever! I had to pry them away for nap time. Thanks Gramps! We look forward to having days like these again soon.

Landon's favorite is to squirt it in his mouth, so by the end of playing with it he is drenched and needs his clothes changed.

Hopefully this little bit of water will help my grass grow!!

I just wanted to post a little update since it has been so long.
Landon's favorite movie is Finding Nemo. We have watched it several times over the past few weeks. When he first wakes up in the morning he says "fishies" and points to the television. That is all he ever wants to do.

So the other night he woke up at like 1:30 just crying. I couldn't get him calmed down and so Jared tried. He just kept crying and pointing to the door of his room. So Jare put him down on the floor and let him show us what he wanted.
Yep! You guessed it, he walked right into the Living room, pointed to the television, and said "fishies". Oh my! no way! We are not watching Nemo at 1:30 in the morning! Needless to say, he was not happy when he found that out.

This has happened twice now. Hopefully we have broken the habbit of watching Nemo everyday because this week we have been playing outside more and not watching Nemo. I certainally hope this helps with the desire to watch it at 1:30 in the morning!

Nothin' a cookie can't fix!

Landon has been having a really rough day today. I don't know if he's getting sick, getting teeth, or just unhappy. He has been a pill all day long. Jare and I layed him down for a nap after church thinking that would make it all better, but.....45-60min later he woke up crying, crying, crying. Poor little guy. Finally after we tried for several minutes to put him back to sleep, singing to him, rubbing his back, laying by him; we decided to just let him get up.

I was in the middle of making cookies for dessert tonight and of course he wanted one. So he got one....I mean two! This made his day for a little while and then the evening he was back to his ornry slump. Hopefully a good night's rest will cure it!

*If you notice, I asked him to stay in the kitchen to eat his cookie, and he did(he went as far as he absolutely could before entering the living room). What a smart little guy!
