Merry Christmas!

The other day I found Landon in his room just playing with his toys, in his Santa hat. It was so cute! Land has been so excited about Christmas this year, it's gonna be fun!

Let It Snow...

Landon begged me all day to go out and play in the snow. Finally I gave in and let him play outside while we were waiting for Brett to come home from the fire station. He LOVED it! He was rolling around and throwing snow balls. Even though it was really cold, it was worth it to watch Land giggle as he rolled in the snow.

Dancing Landon

Landon is my little dancer. He loves jammin' to any music that is on. (Particularly the Beach Boys) Anyway Brett always turns on the radio when he is getting ready for the day, and this morning I came upstairs and found Landon just dancing his little heart out. So I grabbed my phone and video taped it. I love watching all the funny things he does and think it's so cute. (but I'm his mom:)

Camerons First Date

Cam and his date, Janessa
He looks pretty enthused right?

Morgan and Cameron were in the same group. It was fun to get pictures of the both of them.

I CANNOT believe that Cam is 16 and going on dates and driving! It seems like just yesterday he was that cute chubby faced baby! I hung out at my mom and dads house to watch Morgan and Cameron get ready for Preference. They both looked so cute and their dates were so cute too. Thanks guys for letting me hang around and watch, it was so fun!

Whoo Hoo! So I finally finished my LPN portion of school! I am already 3 weeks into my RN portion now. It has really flown by, but... I will be SO grateful when I am finished. I have till May and then I will be finished with my RN. Thanks to Brett's parents and my parents for all you guys have done to help me get this far! It is so comforting to know that my baby boy is in good hands when I can't be there for him! Also I could never make it with out my sweet husband, Brett, he has been so supportive. It's been fun reviewing things together. He has been so kind and patient with me, even though he has as much on his plate, if not more than I do. You guys are the very best! Love you.

Firefighter Landon...

So if you haven't guessed it Landon is going to be a fireman for Halloween. When his costume came in the mail, I thought it would be fun for him to try it on... Turns out the kid wouldn't take it off once it was on. So after spending the day with "Firefighter Landon", I decided to hide the costume till Halloween. (even though it was really cute!)

After about three weeks of Landon being put in his bed and then ending up in ours in the middle of the night. He FINALLY did it. Landon has been sleeping in his fire truck bed all night! It is SO wonderful. I used to complain that sleeping in bed next to Brett was the most time I get to spend with him. Then all the sudden we had a sweet, snoring boy in between us. Granted one of us has to lay on the floor next to his bed till he falls asleep and if you get caught sneaking out he'll let you know how he feels about it. But I'll take it. It's been getting a little better each night. We are so proud of him!

Our day at Discovery Gateway

So we decided that since Brett and I both had a day off together that we would call up Grandma Laurie and cousin Hyrum and go to the zoo. Of course wouldn't you know it by the time we made it up there it was raining cats and dogs. So we decided to go to Discovery Gateway instead. It ended up being SO fun. They had all sorts of activities for the boys to do there. Land and Hyrum absolutly had a blast and it entertained them the whole afternoon. On the way home since the boys were so good we even stopped at build a bear. By the time we got home we had two very tired little boys!

Landon's 2 year old pictures

My little boy is 2 now! I totally don't feel old enough to even have a two year old. Not to mention how old he looks in these pictures. We had fun getting them done though. We of course had to get them done with some of his trains, which is his latest obsession. I am always surprised with how many good shots they actually get. It seemed like we couldn't get Land to hold still the whole time.

The Next Star of the Jazz

Landon loves playing basketball. He could play ball for hours. He never gets sick of it. Look out D-Will, here comes the next star of the Jazz. (we might need one after the game on Wednesday.) GO LAND! He gets so excited if you cheer for him. He's gotta have fans there to play. He thinks it's even cooler when his dad will play with him.

Balls, Balls and more Balls

Lately Landon is really into balls. Soccer balls, Footballs, Baseballs, you name it he loves it. He won't even take a nap without having all of his balls right there with him. He's crazy! We take the balls (all of them) everywhere we go!

Landon LOVES trucks! I caught him in his room the other day trying to ride on one of his dump trucks. It made me laugh. I couldn't resist grabbing the camera and snapping a shot of it.

Being Greatful for the Crazy Busy Life.

Lately I feel like I barily have time to breath. Between school, work, being mommy and wife, I'm a little overwhelmed. I am just barily figuring out how to use "the blog". Thanks to working a night shift. I really kind of feel bad that I have to look at everyone's blogs in order to know what is going on in my family. I see Grandma Glenda more at work than I do anywhere else. Pretty Pathetic. My poor husband and I only get to sleep next to each other and that's all the time we spend with each other. I sometimes feel like Landon forgets that I'm his mommy and not his Grandmas. All I really want to do is be a mommy and be able to take Land to the park whenever I feel like it,and to be able to play outside all day with him, and to be able to go on as many wagon rides as he wants.
I get so caught up in all that I think I have going on, that I forget to stop and be greatful for the wonderful things that I do have going on in my life.
One of my good friends that I go to school with has 3 children, all of which have health problems, just got a new home because his old one was demolished because of black mold.
I am so greatful for the home that I live in and a family who are all in good health. I cannot imagine adding a sick family onto the platter. My family is wonderfully supportive of all that I am doing. I really am greatful for that. I have to remember, "This is only temporary."
