Don't Blink!!

If you blink you might miss it..

If you blink you might miss the baby grow into a little boy..

You will miss the little boy grow into a young man ..

If you blink you will miss the amazing and wonderful son grow up in front of your eyes.

If you blink you will miss the funny sayings, The dancing around the house.. The giggles and laughter from the playroom.

If you blink you will miss the bike rides, the endless games of uno, the mommy come play catch with me.

If you blink you will miss the koolaid mustaches and pizza face kisses.

If you blink you will miss the Mommy lay down with me..

You will miss the " I can't sleep with out Landry bear and a bumpy blanket"

If you blink you will miss the pure delight in running thru the sprinkler.

If you blink you will have missed out on the best 9 years of life and I hear the next 9 move at light speed.

He may not have been planned but it shows God's plan is greater than our wildest dreams. He is everything I ever imagined and then some. He is more than I ever I dreamed of.

Landry I love you more than you could ever know. Thank you for letting me be your mommy.

When Swine Flu attacks!!!

What do you do when Swine Flu Attacks?
These are very important instructions you must follow to the letter..
Day 1 ( Monday)
Wake up late.

Play around house, make pancakes..

Go to Park to go Fishing.

Realize fish are smarter than they look.
Admire all the baby ducks. Ohh they are sooo cute!!!
Play at park since fishing was not successful.

Home eat lunch..

Go on LONG bike ride to playground with good buddies from school.

Get stopped by police!!!

WHAT!! Yes.. you read that correctly.. Get stopped by police!!
Yes people ONLY in highland village will the police stop you on the bike path to tell you that you as a parent are doing a horrible job and have not adequately protected your kids head. (they had on skateboard helmets not bike helmets)

BUT... at least, the nice police say " come by the station and we will give you all new helmets) YIPEEE...

So, we play then ride to the station,

the officer that ended up helping us was Jason's SRO from school.

He made funny comments about Luke's big head and is ordering Landry and Ty helmets because all they had left was purple EWWWW...

Monday night.. Karate... swine flu does not affect martial artist apparently.

TUESDAY.. ( are you tired yet)

Tuesday morning we get up bright and early and head to Gainsville.

Yes, Gainsville.. because in Gainsville they have a little zoo where you can actually feed giraffes. Landry thought this was the coolest thing EVER!!

my computer not so much liking me right now so you will have to live with sideways pics. sorry

So, it was a rainy nasty day and apparently Gainsvillians can't be scared off by the Swine flu either because there was a field trip.

BUT.. we left and went to lunch and then the boys decided they wanted to go back to the zoo.. Ok.. We were the ONLY people there. AND there is a very cool park out front where their very cool mom played tag with them. It was a great time.

Then, we are suppose to go camping..

Well LISD decided to go back to school so there goes camping UNLESS
You are super mom..


We actually low keyed it for a while.. Boys slept til like 10:00 ( we stayed up watching Facing the Giants the night before)

Then.. We get a call.. You guys wanna go to a creek..

DUH.. Swine flu doesn't attack creeks!!
SO we pack up the bikes and head to this creek, I came home with one very wet child..

and one dry child..

It was great fun..

( Yes, I know they are suppose to be in school but I already had tickets:) )
We went to Casa Manana playhouse in Ft worth. TO see a year with Frog and Toad..

Very cute..
Then off to t he botanical gardens. We LOVE the botanical garden. I always think maybe they will actually learn something.
Well Landry did !!

He learned that trees poop.. Yep that's right he found the only lift a flap that talked about poop.. Yea me.. Be careful what you wish for..

They Had an awesome time with great friends.
Yes he does look wet... Its like a magnet.. water= landry wet

Then.. We went to the stockyards to the Human Cattle maze..

It was hilarious.. Great.. I loved it.. The kids loved it.. It was this huge maze and you had to goto different stations and get you card punched so you could spell out MAZE and then you were done and you took it up front and they tell you how long it took you and give you a little prize. Very fun!!

and the stockyards is not complete wih out a trip to Billy Bob's ..

It is Thursday night.. Landry goes back to school tommorrow. Ahhhh...

Having a Dog gone good time...

Ok let me preface this in saying NOT MY IDEA!!!


Not my IDEA!! got the picture..

Ok so Landry has this fascination with his dogs birthday. I don't know why, But he does.

So, after asking us over and over and over again finally last year we told him May1st.

Never thinking another thing about it.


May 1st.. It goes a little something like this.

Landry opens his eyes..

It's Rusty's birthday. We have to have a party.. He needs a cake . We have to go buy presents.. Let's invite, Christy and Max and Pammy over (other dogs we know)

Mommy scratches her head..WHAT??

Landry repeats...



But mom.....

Lukas then wakes up...

Its Rusty's Birthday. Can we have a party??

He's a DOG!!!!

Harley's (their cousins) birthday was the day before and they said nothing except Happy birthday Harley.

So we compromise with a present and a cake.. NO dog friends and the people eat the cake not the dog!!!

SO here you go...

Friday, May 1, 2009

and so it is....

There they are...

Nice pressed ( by mom of course) white Gei's.

Their belts tied just so..

The looks on their faces like they will puke at just any second..

Yep, It's belt test time at Turner's Martial Arts.

Landry and 12 others in his class were testing for their next level.

It begins.

There is yelling.

There is Screaming.

There are looks of desperation.(and that was from the instructor)

There were cringes.

There were hands being raised " Sir, May I start over".

And then...

There were tears... lots and lots of tears..

and by a few smiles and jumping up and down smiles...

Landry was one of 4 that passed. Way to go JL.. I'm really proud of you!!!
He is now a 2nd Brown belt.. 3 more to go on the way to black..
