LOTS of catching up to do.....

We have been MIA for a while now and need to get some more pics up! I have some of getting the Christmas tree up, Landon's new toy room and what Santa brought this evening when he stopped by the house!!!

Eric and I have been working to get one of the basement rooms converted from a storage room, into a toy room for Landon to enjoy. We went with a colorful green theme (as you can see) and are quite convinced this room will be a hit when Landon see's it tomorrow morning. We worked on this after Landon went to bed for the last month or so.

Putting up the Christmas tree was a lot of fun. Landon is VERY helpful so he really wanted to be a part of that. I also included a few pictures from Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Hill's house where he received his first Tonka truck from Uncle Brad. He really enjoyes pushing that around the house.

Well, Santa as already come and gone....the stockings are full and the gifts are wrapped. We're very blessed this Holiday season with health, happiness, family, friends, love, etc. The list is endless really. 2007 has been a great year and Landon has been so much fun.

Happy Holiday's everyone and here's to a PROSPEROUS New Year in 2008!!!!!

Getting the tree decorated!

Hi all-
Just wanted to post some new pictures of the little man. We had some company this weekend. Matt, Owen and Devon came from Lincoln for the weekend and we went to the ISU/Colorado game up in Ames. Landon went to Grandma and Grandpa Hill's house for the day. We had a nice weekend and hope you all did too!!!

Happy Halloween!

Well, we finally carved our pumpkins. One "normal" one and one Nebraska Husker one for Eric. BRENDA-I bet you'll like that one too!! We went to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago, and Landon had a blast. He rode in the wagon and picked out a few. Although we're not taking him trick-or-treating this year, we are going to hand out candy to the neighborhood kids when they stop by. I think Landon will love all of the fun costumes!!! Next year when he's a little older, we'll dress up.
I love this time of the year. apple cider (spiked of course).......leaves falling......crisp cool mornings!!

I also added a picture of Landon playing around the house. He's getting more and more daring.......standing on things, climbing, etc. Our eyes are peeled in his direction 24/7.
Hope everyone is doing well!! Happy Halloween!!!
*some pics are a little out of order*
I am SO daring!
Here are our works of art!

Group shot! Chad, Brenda, Charli, Me, Eric and Landon!

Landon wearing his new hat. Charli liked it too!

Charli had enough. She was spent!!

Well, last weekend we had a great trip to the Omaha Zoo. We met up with Chad, Brenda and Charli (link to her page to the right for more pics) and just had a blast. This was a very special and important trip. Special in that it was the FIRST time for Charli and Landon to meet and play, the first time for Eric to meet Brenda and Chad and Charli (and vise versa). It was important because Brenda and I have been trying to plan a meeting for quite a while so we were pumped!!

The kids played so well together. Of course, Brenda was more prepared than I was so she had brought lots and lots of toys and the kids did a great job playing and sharing for the most part. It was so fun watching them interact with each other. We even let them run the halls at the hotel and they really enjoyed that.

The zoo was great and the kids really liked it. We saw all kinds of animals and it was a nice (WARM) day. Hope everyone is doing well!

Happy Beginning of FALL 2007

Landon has a new hobby, it's called climbing! He loves to climb on anything and everything that he can. He is so busy!! Mom and Dad are trying to keep up, but it's hard! Not a lot is new except he has been working on those molars for quite a while. I can't complain though because he really has been handling the teething really well. Lots of drool though!!!! We are SO excited because we're heading to Omaha, NE this weekend to meet Chad, Brenda and Charli at the zoo!
We have a hotel room booked with a pool for the kids and we're making a night of it. I'll be sure to post some fun pictures from that!

Hope all is well with everyone. Happy Fall! Can't believe Christmas is right around the corner!

Enjoy the pictures!

Climbing! Now what?

Walking AND drinking at the same time!

Those eyes.................

Hi Mom!

I can finally walk in my new shoes!

What you lookin' at?

Heading outside with Dad

Hi Everyone! Two posts in one day? Mom must be bored! Today is the NFL season kickoff and I supported my team, THE BEARS, in my new outfit! Wanted to show it off.


It's been a while!!!!

Look at those BLUE eyes!

This is what happens when Mom
leaves the room for a second!!!!!

My first carousel ride!


It's been a while since I have posted any updated pictures on this site. Brenda has been all over me lately to get this updated and I have meant to do so but the days have gotten away from me. Summer is almost over, I am so sad! But, I am ready for football season. GO CYCLONES!! and GO BEARS!!!! I have a few really cute FUN outfits for Landon to wear this football season to support our favorite teams. I will be sure to get some pictures posted and on here as well.

Landon is officially walking! He's now into everything and is moving pretty fast! He can go up and down the stairs too, which he just thinks is pretty cool. Yesterday, he went to his first parade with Grandma and Grandpa Hill while Mom and Dad slept in and had a blast!

Here are a few recent pictures for you to see. I'll be posting more again soon, I promise Brenda!

The lazy dayz of summer

Well, the verdict is in. Landon loves the sun and the water as much as I do. Thank goodness because if not, we'd have some issues to address. These are some pics from Grandma and Grandpa Hill's house recently. The top one is Landon and Eric actually asleep together in the was so cute to see them resting together. Landon will float for a long time in the pool without making a peep. I think he finds it as relaxing as I do.

Iowa State Fair is just around the corner! Once that hits, the lazy days of summer will be over. I hope that everyone's summer is going good!!!! Hope to see ya'll soon.
