Happy Holidays

So i am thinking this is an accurate description of Christmas with Landon this year. I think I'll send one these out as Christmas cards this year. No cute, dressed up, fake smile picture just the truth.

Christmas tree cutting 2008

We always go the day thanksgiving to cut down our Christmas tree we go to the same place every year and get five dollars off because we are such loyal customers. Landon really enjoyed the tree cutting extravaganza this year as well as the decorating. He would get one glass ornament at a time put it in his tiny little hand squeeze and watch it shatter. This has been his favorite part of Christmas so far. Next year we will child proof our tree. I have really loved this holiday season, holidays are much more fun with kids.

Who knew a cat could pee in the toilet?

Last week I was asked by the manager at the apartment complex were we live if i wanted a cat. I said no due the fact that i really don't like cats. I think of cats and i think cat hair, cat poop, litter boxes and hair balls all of which are disgusting and vile things. But later in the week i saw them carrying this cat out to the car and asked if they had found the cat a home. They said no they were going to take him to the SPCA. The cat had been abandoned in an apartment by his family. So i took the cat so that i could find it a proper home. Little did i know that this is the coolest cat ever. Landon rides him like a horse and pulls his tail and all he dose is meow. He sleeps on the foot of our bed like he has lived here his whole life. He can open cupboards climb inside and close the door and last but not least, HE CAN PEE IN THE TOILET NO JOKE WE SAW IT! I think this kitty may be a keeper.

Jason Mraz concert

For one of my best friend Nicole's birthday I bought us concert tickets to see Jason Mraz at the Greek theater in Berkly and it was awesome i definitely left a bigger fan them when I arrived and that is saying a lot. It was a beautiful nigh the weather despite the rain the day before was perfect! He is an incredible musician and entertainer. I am so glad i got to go to such a great event and even more grateful for my friend Nicole she is one of the greatest women i have ever known!!

Halloween 2008

I have to say i am very pleased with how Halloween went this year. I didn't think Landon would enjoy it all that much and i am proud to say I was wrong. He loved it! We had a really great time in Manteca with everyone. Halloween is way better with kids!

We also carved pumkins with Aaron and emily the day before halloween we were very pleased with how they turned out and had a great time.

Evenings of insanity

Every day around 5:30 I start to lose it, Well let me rephrase Landon and I start to lose it. The day is coming to an end and so is my well behaved child. I have been working in the evenings a few days a week and naps seem to be a thing of the past since we are on a new schedule with me leaving in the afternoon. So by 5:30 this is what we look like....

Then at around ten this is what he looks like......

If only this precious, peaceful sleeping child would emerge in the daytime oh how wonderful that would be! Then I wake up.

I would sell my soul to be skinny!

So my wight has been my biggest struggle my whole life. I'm skinny, I'm fat, skinny, fat, skinny, fat. Get pregnant get really FAT! I am not talking 20 pounds overweight i am talking i gained 75 pounds that is like two 5 year old boys. Anyway I have recently been working out with a trainer and dieting (sort of). I have actually seen results, for the first time in my life i think i have hope to look the way i want to look. I have lost 9 pounds in a month and 3% body fat. if i lose 10 more pounds i will be pre- Landon weight. Hurray, hurray, you say but little do you know that this has been this way it is my whole life get skinny then get fat again. So i have decided no more babies until i look like this........
Yes it is true no more bundles of joy until this happens, and it will happen. I think that i would sell my soul to look like this. Even if I have to get surgery in the end it will happen. So I leave you with a picture of me now but check back in May 2009 and you will see hopefully something close to the picture above.

P.S. I know this picture sucks but it is all I have.

Grampa Jim's b-day

Meet Wes's Dad Jim (pictured below). Jim is the best! He is kind and i guess you could say funny at least he thinks he is. He is the best father in law a girl could ask for. It was his birthday recently and the whole family came up to Roseville and we spent the day together. I made brunch then we went shopping and the girls got pedicures. After we went to dinner at The Outback where we discovered that my son covets ranch dressing, but who doesn't? Shout out to Jim!

When I got back we went to dinner at our favorit sushi restaurant Mikunis (www.mikunisushi.com) . I am so grateful to have Wes he is my best friend, and my strength. Here are some of my favorite pictures of us over the past 4 years.

Will Landon ever figure it out?

I am sure many of you moms have one of these toys. You push the big red button at the top and air pushes up through the tube. The idea is to put small plastic balls into the conveyer, watch them travel down into the tube, and fly back through the top as the air pushes them up. My son, however, has no concept of this. Instead, as you can see, he shoves blocks, cars, and any other toys that will fit down the tube plugging up the whole system. Once the tube is backed up, the toy makes a horrendously loud buzzing sound which scares the crap out of Landon. He runs away and the toy is left battered and broken.

This is one of my favorite things in the world. Landon sitting still. He and his daddy are having a nice time watching the Giants lose, again.
Hi, my name is Landon and I am really excited about playing my drum!
Hi, my name is Landon and I am really excited to be taking this picture with my mom!
I love this ridiculous new smile. It is very contagious.

Loon Lake

As most of you know Wes calls me Loon, or Loony, or Luno, and most often the Loony Lou so when we ended up camping at Loon lake it was very fitting. We went up with our friends the Davidson's to camp at Ice house but after going through 500 camp sites and 4 and half hours of driving we ended up at Loon lake and pulling over on the side of the road hiking back and camping at 11:30 @ night. We set up camp and besides the fact that California is burning so we couldn't start a camp fire we had a great time. We got up @ 4:30 the next morning to fish and I caught my first fish thanks to captain Andy!! we had a great time and decide that Loon lake is our new favorite place to camp and fish. Thanks Andy and Christi for the great weekend.
