Sweet Silly Baby

Sawyer is so different than Landon was as a baby. He is so opinionated and very vocal. He doesn't just fuss when he wants something, he hollers. He needs to be right where everything is happening. When he's grumpy he is so grumpy when he's happy, he's the sweetest boy in the world. Here's some "sweetest boy" pictures.

First Snow

Shortly after Landon woke up he looked out the window and then ran for our room.
It snowed, it snowed!
The first thing he wanted to do that morning was play in the snow. So we bundled him up in all his snow gear and he went out to play in the front yard. He wanted to make a snowman, but there wasn't enough snow, so he settled for throwing snowballs at the window I was watching him from.

Got Talent?

Here are our talented boys showing off their latest feats!

Landon doing tricks on the wall!

Sawyer sucking on his foot!

Is cute a talent?

Landon's Birthday

Landon is now five years old! I can't believe he is getting so big! He is in preschool this year and for his birthday celebration he got to take a poster with things he loves on it, bag full of 'show and tell' items, and of course a treat. He also got this sweet birthday crown from preschool, which we made him wear on his actual birthday too.

Landon has gotten into Star Wars, so he got several Star Wars characters for his birthday and even a Darth Vader costume for Halloween.

He wanted a Spider Man cake, so I decided to be creative and decorate it myself. Pretty sweet eh?

Appendicitis Anyone?

I have joined the Appendectomy Club! Woohoo! Yes, I had to have my silly appendix out last month. Ridiculous, I know -- Didn't I just have a C-Section five months ago??? For those who want the story, here it is.
I had been having stomach cramps for a few days (thought is was gas :)). Then on Sunday (of course) I woke up with aching and pain in my right side. I wondered which side your appendix was on, so I went and looked it up on WebMD and of course, I had all the symptoms. Nate and I debated for a few minutes whether or not to go to Instacare and finally, because of Nate's schedule and stuff, we decided we should probably go in and just have it checked out.
At Instacare I told the Doctor my symptoms and he said, "So, you're the one. Every day we have one person come in with chest pain, and one person with a possible appendicitis." I thought, "Oh, wonderful!"
So he sent us over to AF hospital to get a CT Scan and then, when it was sure I had an appendicitis, they moved me right into surgery and I was home that night by 10:30pm. It was a lovely day, to be sure. The recovery was okay. The first few days stunk, but after that things healed up really quickly.
So, although it is tons of fun, membership fees are horrendous and there are no real perks to being part of the club, except one less body part to worry about!


When Landon was about three years old he fell and bumped his front teeth and of course they died. In September they abscessed, so he had to have them pulled. Here's a silly picture with him sporting Dad's goofy hunting hat and his toothless grin. He now has some sweet fake teeth to fill in the gaps till his permanent teeth grow in.

Such a sweet boy.

our summer...

This summer was nothing very exciting, but we did have funtimes playing outside and swimming at grandma's. I planted some flowers this spring, and though they didn't turn out like I'd planned, they still looked pretty good for my first time.

Landon starts preschool this next week. He got to meet his teacher and pick out his seat in their classroom last week. He thought that was way cool and is pretty excited to go. He has been saying some rather funny things lately, too bad I can never remember them! He learns new words and tries using them, with confidence I might add, which makes it all the funnier, but he uses them just a little bit off, or totally wrong. Once in a while he gets it right on the money though. The other day he called Nate 'chap'. We both had a good laugh at that one.

Sawyer just keeps getting bigger and bigger. He is a cute smiley little guy. He started sucking his thumb a bit, but I haven't noticed it much lately. It was sure cute though. He's rolling onto his sides a lot more now and just being a silly giggly baby.

Nate started school this week and has gone part time at Larson Davis. We are glad that he is finally home for a couple of hours each day with us. Landon misses daddy being home at night, but at least now he's home a little more.

Just for those wondering what the heck that is a picture of at the top of our blog, it is two icicles (really close up) that were growing from our roof this last winter with the sunset behind them. I know, it's just lovely isn't it. I'm so talented! hehe jk :)

For Nate's work party the company sent us to Boondocks in Draper where we had fun times on the bumper boats, the slick track and mini-golfing. Nate's sister Megan and my sister-in-law Wendi work there as well so we got to hang out with all of them!
When Landon and I went on the bumper boats we got a boat that had a "broken" squirter. The bonus was that we got to just hold the squirter and squirt any direction we wanted! We had a great time getting Ryan, Tyler and Daddy wet.

More Pictures

Why more pictures you ask? Because our boys are so darn cute, that's why! :) Besides, pictures are more fun to look at than words right?
