Landon the dragon

At mother's day out Landon was able to dress up in his halloween costume. This year he is a dragon. Here are a few pictures in his costume. For halloween we are going to Jason's childhood church for their annual truck or treat. Besides truck or treating they have cotton candy, popcorn and hot dog stands. We have never attended so we are looking forward for a fun night out and spending time with Jason's family.

Weekend Wrap up

We have been very busy this weekend. Well Jason has been very busy. Saturday Jason helped a friend move for a few hours in the morning and then came home and unloaded 4 scoops of mulch in our flower beds. My dad came over to help and after they finished we went out to eat dinner and watched the last half of the UT vs. Bama game. I am for UT Jason is a Bama fan. A house divided!! After dinner we headed to Halloween in the Park. Today we went to church, Jason cut the grass, hosted small group at our house and then off the to grocery store. Now we are waiting on Jason's parent's to visit for a few hours. The holiday's are approaching so our weekend's will only get busier.
Our yard looks great so I took a few picture's before all the grass and plants die for the season. Thanks Jason for all your hard work. We love you!!
We hope you had a great fun filled weekend as we did.

I heart water can

I had to bring in my water can to fill up to water my mums outside. I placed the water can on the floor and guess who found it and wanted to carry it around the house. I guess all the toys that are in every corner of our house are not good enough.

Pumpkin Farm 2009

Today was a great day to visit our local pumpkin farm. Last year when we visited the farm Landon was only 3 months old. This year he is a 15 month old little man walking everywhere and wanting to touch everything. My parents went with us and shared this fun and special day with Jason, Landon and I.

15 months already

O my goodness Landon is 15 months old. Really where does the time go? Jason, Landon and I headed to the doctor this morning for Landon's 15 month wellness exam. He received 3 shots and had to get blood drawn. He did not cry the 1st time when they drew blood, but when they brought those shots out that was a different story. As a mom we NEVER want anything bad to happen to our babies so going to the doctor and seeing him cry because someone is hurting him breaks my heart. At least he will never remember them. We go back when he is 18 months and then again at 24 months. After that he only has to go once a year. YEAH!!
Here are the stats:
24.3 lbs - 50% percentile
31.5 inches - 55% percentile
Long and skinny like his daddy!!
His doctor said he is as healthy as a horse and is right on track with hitting all his milestones at this point.
After the doctor we headed home and as soon as we left the hospital parking lot he was OUT!! Must have been the Tylenol kicking in and all the screaming from shots.
Landon usually always has a fever after shots so today we are staying home and being lazy. I think I might have to make some soup for dinner.
Sunday we are going to our local pumpkin farm. I pray for good weather.

He was asleep as soon as we left the parking lot

Hope you have a great weekend.

Finding Nemo

Every october we have to clean out this....

Set up this...

For this...

We have had this sucker/algae fish for 3 years and every year we have to catch him from the fish pond and place him into his tank for the winter. He will stay in the tank till spring when the weather is warmer. Our fish would not live the winter in the pond, they have to have warm water to survive. The only place he can go (or i will allow) is our laundry room. We put him on the floor because he is so strong he could knock over the tank stand. We also have to feed him algae wafers all fall/winter till he returns to the pond. Every year we say we are going to give him to someone who has a bigger and nicer tank so we don't have to transfer him every year, but Jason really like's this fish so we keep him. Landon has not seen the fish yet, but he did seem to be very interested in the tank full of water. Look's like I will be going to be closing the laundry room door from now on. Believe it or not the fish is not very hard to catch. Jason has to careful though because he does have sharp spikes. We have never named our fish. Does anyone have a name idea for our "Nemo"?

I hope PETA doesn't see this

Landon and Zoey are always playing together. Landon likes to ride Zoey like a horse and chase her around the house. I'm pretty sure Zoey does not like Landon pouncing on her, but she just sits there and takes it like a champ. I do have to break it up every now and then. Now that Landon is walking and I have to block the doggie door, Zoey has no place to hide. Baby proofing has come in full swing now that little man is in full throttle mode. I have to close all the bathroom doors, because he likes to play with the toilets and take the toilet bolt covers off and chew on them. He likes to eat the rocks from our gas log fireplace. We had to close the doggie door because he likes to crawl out of it. Last week I caught him taking the AC vent out of the floor and dangling his legs in the vent and putting toys down there as well. Loves to roll the toilet paper off the roll and crawl into the shower with me. He has also ripped our alarm sensor out of the wall several times. Do all toddlers do this? I have to watch him every second of the day because he is into EVERYTHING!!
Is it worse because I have a toddler that happens to be ALL BOY or are all toddlers this way? What are some crazy things your kids do?

I promise he is not hurting her

Someone get me a spoon because I could just eat him up

The big 35!! weight lose that is. Yep that's right at Weight Watcher's last night I weighed in not sure what to expect. Since I was sick last week I didn't eat very much, but this last weekend I made up for it since I was feeling better and starving. So I went in got my little weigh-in sheet and stepped up on the scale. My WW leader just looked at me like OMG!! I lost 4.2 lbs in the last 2 weeks. That put me over the 35 lbs I was hoping for and I ended up with a total of 38 lb. lost. I was doing my happy dance at this point. I have gone down two shirt sizes and two pant sizes. I am still keeping my original goal of 50 lbs. I will let you know how next week goes. After my meeting I went through the Taco Bell drive-thru. HA ;O)
