The Stars are Aligned

Well, it is Fall and with the change in the season, I cant help but notice the changes in my children. Not only in their individual personalities, but in how they interact with each other. I think they may actually be starting to like each other, lol! They have always had their brotherly love, but man do they fight!!!! But over the past few days, I have seen a difference.

Instead of screaming and crying coming from the playroom, I hear giggles! Instead of Landon chasing Luke and Luke screaming, Luke wants to be chased and they fall to the ground in a non -combatish heap. Instead of them fighting over the same toy, I caught them actually playing with a toy...GASP...together!!!

I'm not sure if this is a phase or the stars are aligned perfectly, but I can say the mommy in me beams to see my boys enjoying each others company. I'm so blessed to see their brotherly bond grow right before my eyes.

Tractor Bend

Well, it has been a busy week. At Landon's preschool, they ask that all the 4year old classes to make a float for the school "fair parade". After much debate we decided on a tractor/construction/Krippco float. Daddy and Landon had some fun bonding time as they sat out on the back porch and created this mini construction site on wheels.

Landon had to walk his float through gym for all the other kiddos and parents to see. It was so cute! Although, Landon did lose a wheel mid-walk, but hey, he is my child, something like that was bound to happen. I attached a picture of the wheel incident, along with some others from that day. We are so proud of him! He is getting SO big way too fast!!!
As for the title of this blog, Landon chose to name his float "Tractor Bend". No idea where the kid came up with that, but its original. =)

Well, here I am, trying to blog and I have absolutely nothing to blog about. Everybody is anticipating the landfall of big, bad Hurricane Ike. We had a trip down to Port A planned for next weekend, so I'm assuming that Ike may wipe out the beachouse were renting. I'm a little agitated about that. BUT not nearly as agitated as all those poor evacuees are. Yuck! Let's all hope and pray that Ike powers down to a Category 1!!!

Otherwise, the boys and Larry are great. Were looking foward to the holiday season so rapidly approaching. I looovvveee this time of year. I do believe I love the anticipation and excitement BEFORE the holidays than the actual holiDAY itself.

Ok well, I'll leave you with a few pics from this summer .....go stock up on water and toilet paper in case Ike knocks us for a loop!!!! And dont forget cookies and maybe a bottle of wine, too! =)

It's been awhile...

Well, here I am again, posting my third blog! We had a great Labor Day weekend which just so happened to be my 28th birthday weekend. 2 years from the BIG 3-0!!!

Anyways, My hubby gave in and bought a 17ft bass boat he has been wanting. We woke up at the wee hour of 6 in the morning and were on the water(Lake Dunlap) by 7! We had a blast. The boys just love to sit back and enjoy the ride. We did nickname Luke"Captain" because he insists on sitting on Larry's lap so he can "drive" the boat. We attempted to bass fish but lets just say the small space and one fishing pole for 2 eager boys....we were about to have a brawl and someone was bound to go overboard. ;-) So, we stuck to cruising around Lake Dunlap and played the "If I lived on the lake I would want that house" game. Well, Larry and I played that game...

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Labor day weekend!
