Ummm.... yeah.


Landon is going to be crawling soon. He turned 8 months old on the 8th of May, and just this last week, he started getting up on his knees and "rocking" back and forth. Eeek! Not sure we are ready for him to be crawling... He is growing up so fast! Here's a few pictures for you to enjoy:

We had a great Easter, and I had a great Mother's Day. Oh, and "Administrative Professionals Day fell in there as well :). Landon looked so cute on Easter Sunday!

The Easter Bunny came!

Daddy had to work... :(
We got some pictures of him and his cousins...although I didn't get a group picture of his other cousins on Saturday...:( I guess we'll have to make sure of that next year! I'll have to upload all of those later though, cause when I tried to "steal" them from my sister's FB page, it wouldn't let me. Darn privacy setting! Hehehe...Anywho... I got flowers at work for being an "administrative professional" -- Gerber Daisies--pretty pretty!

You know you are jealous :). They died about 5 days later... I must have over watered them or something... The leaves still look kind of pretty though... maybe some new buds will pop out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! For Mother's Day, Aaron (and Landon!) surprised me with a Nook!
Woohoo! Right now, I am reading Pride and Prejudice (again). The going is slow. Landon likes to take up what used to be my reading time with playing and laughing, and eating, and diaper changes. Ahh.... the sweet life of being a mom! Good thing I read a lot of books when I was younger... cause I might get 3 or 4 in a year at the rate I'm going now. But I wouldn't trade Landon in for a million books!

Other than all of that, there is not a whole lot going on right now that I can think of. Aaron and I are planning a trip to New York in October...I can't wait until we buy our tickets! It will be nice to get away and to visit a place neither of us has ever been.

Our Buddy Walk team, "Lauren's Love Patrol" is in the middle of our second fundraiser right now... raising money for the awareness of Down Syndrome-- our team goal for the year is $5000! And we need your help. Right now we are doing a "Scentsy" Fundraiser. Here is the link if you would like to make a purchase: All of the profits from this "show" will go to Lauren's Love Patrol. Help us out y'all!

Well, I must be going now. Got things to do (and lunch to eat!) Have a blessed day (all 6 of you! hehe) 


  1. A nook, very cool! I'm not ready to make the switch from paper books to electronic books. I love my books too much! But, like you, I'm finding it harder and harder to read these days. I have to decide between staying up late to read or getting to bed on time. Guess which one wins?

  2. I didn't think I would like the E-book either... because I love the smell of turning the pages, etc. But it IS really convenient to not have to find a book mark, or sit there and try to remember which page I was on. Plus, if I am not enjoying the book I am currently reading, I have a whole "library" no matter where I am at... (i.e., the waiting room at the doctor's office).

    Oh, bedtime wins out with me everytime as well!
