Dear Landon,

continued from last year...

December 12th, 2002...
I thought I loved you more than I could ever love anything in the whole world...then at 6:25 pm you were born. That moment I experienced a love I never thought was possible! You were beautiful...all 10 lb 3 oz of you!

December 12th, 2003...
You were just the cutest little (big) boy I'd ever seen! You were walking already and had a mouth full of teeth! You gave me a run for my money sometimes, but you loved your momma!! I loved you even more which didnt seem possible to me!!
Happy 1st Birthday Landon!

December 12th, 2004...
AHH...the terrible 2's were in FULL force! Somehow after all your tantrums, fits, and "episodes" you would have, I went to bed every night thanking God for letting me be your mother! You pretty much stayed in that lovely toddler
stage, but it all seems like a distant memory now! I wont go in to detail of when you ran away from me in the parking lot, tried to pull down my curtains, bite me when I put you in time out, or any of those other moments you blessed me with that year! Just that I still loved every moment I was your mom!
Happy 2nd Birthday Landon!

December 12th, 2005...
Wow...times sure changed this year! You became such a joy to be around! You were at your Montessori school and became a little boy! You could do everything on your own, but still loved for mommy to help you! We started movie nights and getting to do more fun things together..just the 2 of us!
Happy 3rd Birthday Landon!

December 12th, 2006...
You had such a personality! Your stories, vocabulary, and humor was hilarious!! You made everyone laugh and smile around you, and once again, I was so proud to be your mom!
Happy 4th Birthday Landon

December 12th, 2007...
I remember waking up thinking..."5 year old??? Really? Where has the time gone?" My little bugs, pooks, Lan-Man, boogs, bubs was getting so big and I was sad and happy all at once! Your sense of humor and personality continued to grow and make so many people smile!
Happy 5th Birthday Landon

December 12, 2008...

You are now in kindergarten and have become everything and more that I thought you would be! You are so smart, funny, handsome, and witty! I love you more today than I ever have in your whole life!
Thank You for making me so proud Landon! I love you with my whole life, heart and soul! You are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I cant wait to make so many more memories with you! (and dont worry, I will still love you with all your tough teenage years to come...please take it easy on mom though!!)
Happy 6th Birthday Landon!

December 12th, 2009...

I am starting to see a pattern here...every year you amaze me and I cant imagine loving you MORE.  Somehow, everyday makes me love you more and more!  We have so much fun together and cant imagine my life without you!
You are such a smart 1st grader!  Your teacher says you are a math wizard and you are reading so much better!  I love how excited you still get about things...your personality cracks me up daily!  You are very punctual and get very worried if you think we might be late!  It is too funny!
You still like to hang out on the couch and watch movies with me and I couldnt love those moments more!
Thanks for making the last 7 years the best years of my life!
Happy 7th Birthday Landon!

Love, Mom

I still cant believe I can say that!!  lol
The weatherman said all week that we were expecting snow on Friday, but being a Texan, we know that somehow it would pass us up!  ;)
Much to our surprise, Friday morning we had a few flurries, and to completly honest, we were satisfied!
An hour later, this is what we saw outside our window at work!!
Holy crap, its snowing in Katy, TX!!!

The dealership looked so cool!

While everyone else was ordering in, Mandy and I decided to go to Target on out lunchbreak!  When we drove out, we realized how much snow we were actually getting!!  Snow didnt stop us from Target!  ;)

My mom and Mimi went and got Landon from school at 12 so he could enjoy it!  Heck, we may never see this again!
This was one of his many little snowmen!!

He wrote his name on the table!

Once I got off work, I went to their house and he pulled this out of the freezer!  He didnt want it to melt before I got there!  SO cute!

As it started to melt, I realized I didnt have any pics of us in the snow!  Had to remember this day forever!!

It was such a wonderful day and I think we will all remember it for a long time! 
The next morning when we got up it was still covered in white snow and ice!  As you drove down the streets you saw snowmen everywhere! 
Landon was in heaven (and I think I was too!  lol)

So there you have it, snow in Katy!!
I have a few more post up my sleeve, but I thought I would start with this one!!

P.S a certain little boy in my house will be 7 this Saturday!!!!

Knocking on 30! ;)

OK, not really, but since everyone had the "30" jokes today,
 I thought I would join in! lol
Today is really my 29th birthday and I have had a great day!
I got to work and my friends, Jessica and Mandy had decorated my office!!

I'm still finding confetti everywhere!  My purse, my pocket, my car!

Jessicas daughter, Addison "made" this for me!!!  How stinking cute is that?!?!

I have had so many facebook messages, comments, texts and sweet calls from my wonderful friends!! 
Then it was back to mommy mode, because I picked Landon up, rushed to soccer practice, had a "gourmet" McDonalds birthday dinner (in the car!), picked up cookie dough fundraiser and then headed home for bath and homework!  lol 
We are having a girls night in this weekend that is sure to be loads of fun though!!  Pics to follow soon (hopefully before the new year!  ha)

Heres to the last year in my twenties!!!! ;)

So You Think You Can Dance

In case you all have been under a rock, you already know I LOVE reality and dance shows!! ;) 
So, when I got the call from Natalie asking if I wanted to go see SYTYCD on tour, I was SUPER stoked!!
Nat and Steph

We had great seats!
Opening number!

Philip and Janine!

If you watch the show, you know exactly what dance this is!  lol

This would have been such a great pic if it wasnt so blurry :(

I tried to catch it again, but no such luck!  lol

My camera died about 1/2 way through, so I am patiently waiting on the rest of the girls pics!!
It was soooooo much fun and I cant wait to go again!!
