A forgotten post!

While I was downloading Landons birthday pics (which are in the post below if you missed them!), I realized I never posted my birthday pics!  OOPS!
It was over 2 months ago, but whos counting?!?!

Yet another wonderful cake by Lissa!!
She matched my evite PERFECTLY!!
What was even more special was that it was a total surprise for me!
She had football tickets in Ohio and wasnt going to be able to be at my party :(
Her and Crystal planned this and it was so sweet! 
I am not a "fancy, get dressed up" kind of girl!  I opted to have a girls night in, gamenight, pajama party!!
Crystal took the theme and got super creative!!
Some of my fav cookies on the checkers board!
She even made "dice" made out of my pic...
thats enough Steph to scare you!  lol
Some of the games we had to chose from!
Delicious Sangria!!
Myles (the only boy allowed!)
Check ot Crystals footed pajamas!!
Jess, thanks for making it that night and being one of the last people to leave!!  You are one of the only reasons I enjoy working upstairs now!  :)
Mandy, thanks for staying up late for me! 
You are the other reason I'm glad I'm upstairs! 
Thanks for being a great lunch buddy and friend! (not associate!  haha)
Amanda, you dont know how much it meant to me that you were there that night!  Casper, camping trips and keg parties!!!  lol
Vicky, you are the funnest girls I know!  All of my friends talked about you for weeks!  You are such a geniune person and I'm so glad to call you my friend!!
Kirsten, love you bunches and still thank Mike for introducing you to his "dorky" friends!  We are always down for some good time wood!  ha
Natalie, thanks for just being you!  I'm so glad to call you one of my best friends!!  10 years and going strong!!
Movies, concerts, Chick Fil A on a Saturday night, I always know who to call!!
Faith, my adopted sister!!  Thank you for always "getting" me!  I'm so thankful for your friendship.  Thanks for giving me the 2 cutest nephews too!!!  :)
Crystal, oh Crystal, thanks again for yet another fabulous birthday!  You made this birthday so special and perfect!!  You are the best friend and sister anyone could ever ask for!  Thank you (I could never tell you that enough!!)
Somehow I managed not to get a pic with Judy and Emmie, but thank you girls for being was so much fun having you there!
(even though you both kicked our butt in the Friends game!!)
Also, to Holly, you were so sweet to still drive over just to give me my awesome present.  So sorry you missed the party, thanks for not staying and getting us all sick though!

We had the most fun playing Pictionary!
Can you guess what Vicky was trying to draw?!!?
The word was "pause"
She was trying to draw the pause button, the top 2 were the tv and the remote!!  hehe

Time for All Play!
We had such a fun night!  Here is our winning team!  :)

Now you can see why I didnt want to skip this post!
I have the best friends a girl could ask for!!  To each and every one of you (even the ones not there!)
You girls ROCK!

Happy 7th Birthday Landon!! (just a little late!)

So my little man turned 7 in December!!
I'm starting to think that I start off every post a month or two behind!  lol
Landon chose to have his birthday at Pump It up again!  3 out of the last 4 years have been there, but they have just as much fun EVERY time!

Landon and Tayla getting ready to play!

Devon and Brooklyn..such a sweet big brother!!

Addison, Kyle and Cameron going down the slide!

West and Sean!  Another set of sweet siblings :)

Skylah and the twins!

One of my bestest friends, Melissa (better know as Lissa and Aunt Lissa in our house!) made his cake!!
It turned out better than I expected!  He picked the design and colors, but she made it come to life!
Thanks babe..we loved it!!

Landon, Conner and Jacob


About to open his presents..there were so many...2 weeks before Christmas, and he got so much stuff!!

Check out this face!  My child is such a dramatic little thing!  lol

You think he liked his presents?!?!

Grandpa, mammy, Tayla and Landon :)
Thanks so much for making the trip here!!

He had such a great day!  We had over 30 kids there and I realized now that was way too many!  As much fun as everyone had, I feel like I didnt get to see everyone!

PS...guess who got Black Eyed Peas tickets today!?!?!?
Thats right, the concert connaisseur is back!! lol

Makeover and ROLL TIDE!!!

As you can see, I finally got a new blog makeover!!  Its been a while and I finally asked Krystyn over at Krizzy Designs to do it!!  She is a personal friend of mine from school! (and way before that!)
She did such a great job and I love it!!  Hope you do too!
Please check her out at for blog designs, announcements, or invitations!  Her stuff is AWESOME!!

I had to add these next pictures!!  We have a divided house tonight
6-ALABAMA (Julia, Faith, me, Crystal, Landon and Myles!)
2-UT (Bryand and Gavin)
and Skylah which really doesnt care because football isnt her thing!  lol
Most of my family wants to disown me, but I'm sure they will forgive me soon!  :)
Julia and Faith

"Roll" "Tide"

Landon and one of the UT fans, Gavin (even though he is still wearing red!) lol

UT fans on the bottom, right where they belong!!!  ha

We are all pumped and watching the game!!
I wish it wasnt a school night (I'm sure we will let them stay up a little late though!  no spelling test tomorrow!  lol)
We will see if I can proudly say that tomorrow!  ;)
No pics of me, but here is my shirt!  bwahahahahaha

CHRISTmas Fun!!

We had a wonderful December!!!
We started off with Landons birthday on the 12th (pics coming soon!)
and then celebrated Christmas for the rest!  lol
I played around and came up with some collages to catch up on our Christmas festivites!! (click on the collage to make it larger)
Hope you enjoy!!
We started off at Papa and DeeDees (Landons great grandparents!)
the weekend before Christmas!
Little did they know, they bought him EXACTLY what he wanted for Christmas..

Christmas Eve we went to the candlelight service at church and then headed to Nana and Mimis to spend the night!
Notice the stack of 7 presents all wrapped together (behind Landon)?!?!
Look in the next collage for the yellow boxes to see what my special guy got!!!
Santa also brought him another skateboard! It was the only thing he specifically asked for, so he is super happy to have 2 now! ;)

Yep, ZHU ZHU pets were the hit this year, and my mom and Mimi were on a hunt to find them!  I wasnt going to search the world and pay WAY too much for the people on amazon selling them...but guess who was?!?!
If you dont know what I am talking about then you have either been living under a rock (or dont have a child 4-8 yrs old!  ha)

After waking up and doing presents there, we headed home for Christmas with our "family" Crystal, Skylah, Bryan, Gavin, me and Landon!
(I loved walking by our Christmas cards everyday!!)

Look closely in Landons lap and you can see that even Ajax got a snuggie too!!  ;)

Then for the GRAND FINALE...
blindfolded and ready to go outside...
Crystal making sure they cant see...

This was totally last minute and something I didnt plan on doing, but hey, its been worth it!  They LOVE them!
Landon even told me later that day that he knew he was a lucky kid!

The next morning we headed to Lafayette for Christmas with Landons other side of the family!!
Landon and his sister got another snuggie, game, ds games, ect, and they loved every bit of it!
Grandpa and Mammy got a Wii Fit and the kids played it NON STOP all weekend!  No joke!
It was a wonderful weekend and such a great way to end our Christmas festivities!

This was yet another season full of friends, family and laughter!
We are so blessed by all of the people who are in our life!
Happy 2010!!!
