Christmas Day!

We are were so excited for Christmas morning. Landon woke up about 6:30 and we went straight to opening gifts.

In his super cute Christmas Jammies that was in his stocking.

Please look past me in the next few photos.






Playing with his work bench that Santa brought him.
Santa also brought him a new backpack because he is not a baby anymore and doesn't need a big diaper bag. Some movies and books, two outfits for the summer, and a Columbia jacket.

After opening presents we got ready and went to Dustin's cousins house for lunch. It was wonderful we also took some pictures.

Most of the guys.


My handsome man.


He carried around this picture of Lindsey the whole time.



My most favorite picture of my two boys.

Wordless Wednesday..Favorite Seat


This was his favorite spot to sit on Christmas Eve.
Good thing it wasn't breakable.
I guess he was trying to claim this as his Dirty Santa Gift.

Christmas Eve '09

We got to Dustins grandmothers on Wednesday so we were already at her house when everyone got there on Christmas eve night.


Landon, Zoey, Susie, Lil Patrick, Katie, and Corey

Landon, Lil Patrick, and Zoey


Thats mostly all of the pictures I have from that night. It's pretty crazy there. There are about 25-30 people. So its kind of hard to take pictures. Here is a video though and if you listen close you can hear Landon say "Cheese" it is so cute.


Original Video - More videos at TinyPic


The adults play dirty santa. There is a womens dirty santa and a mans dirty santa but you can play in both if you want. I just play in the womens and I got the gift that I had brought which was a Snuggie! I was so excited (I secretly wanted it the whole time). Dustin played in both. In the womens he got a manicure set and some make up and $10.00 and in the mans he got a fossil flask and $20.00. He did pretty good.
The kids all draw names and Lindsey had Landon's name and she got him a Julio Jones jersey to wear to the games next year. Landon had Caleb's name and he got him a Visa gift card.

Then Dustins grandmother and his aunts buy gifts for all the kids. Landon got so much. He got some new outfits, a sleeping bag, a inflatable couch, a book, some trucks, and a throw from Dustins grandmother. From his aunts he got a pushing toy and a cow that makes animal noises. Landon loved everything.

The Real Life Griswolds

Christmas Vacation is one of my favorite Christmas movies actually it one of my favorite movies in general. Well on last Wednesday night when we were on our way to Dustin's grandmothers we went to this house that out done the Griswolds by a mile. It was crazy. Dustin had told me about it before but this was the first year he had taken me to see it. I took a video of it to show you all.


Original Video - More videos at TinyPic

Yes, that is all at one house.You drive up there drive way and back down so that's why the video is a little shaky.Landon loved all the lights. He cried when we started to leave so I had to let him watch this video on my camera while we were going down the road.

We had a wonderful Christmas and I have lots of other Christmas things to share this week so get ready.

Love The Baby

Landon has started "loving" baby dolls and stuffed animals. It is so sweet. You can say "Landon love the baby and he will hold it on his sholder and pat it and kiss it. He also does this to me sometimes when I say give mommy love. He got a baby doll (yes he is a boy with a baby doll but boys can play with dolls too) last year for Christmas and has just started playing with it.


Landon loving his baby.

He is so sweet.

Christmas Party

Saturday night we had our family Christmas Party at Dustin's moms aka Granna. It was so much fun. I brought Oreo Balls and Buffalo Chicken Dip. Dustin's mom made bacon wrapped wennies and lemon cake and she bought a chicken nugget tray from Chick-fil-a and a veggie tray. The food was so delish.
Here are some of the pictures.


Landon in the middle of all of his and Auburns toys.
Do you see the houndstooth luggage that I got? So cute.


More toys.

Landon's rocket. He loves it.

Landon and Auburn

He was up until after 10 and he usually goes to bed between 8 and 9 so he was super sleepy but he was so good the whole time but he didn't get to play with his toys much so here are some pictures of him on Sunday playing with his toys.

Playing with his talking car.

He stopped playing for a minute to watch tv.

My handsome boy.

From Granna Landon got a TV for his bedroom, the rocket, the talking car, and a mickey mouse book.
from Randall, Paula, and Auburn he got a basketball goal.

From Granna Dustin got a Margartavillie Fiji Frozen Concoction Maker and a Alabama lamp.

From Granna I got the houndstooth luggage, a Keruig, some pjs, and a purse.
and she took Landon shopping and he picked out this necklace for me.


It is beautiful.

Flashback Friday...Christmas '08


This was taken last Christmas. Landon was so small (and I was so large good thing I have lost a little weight since then.)

I am so excited for Christmas. I have all of my presents wrapped and they are under the tree. There is nothing better than a Christmas tree with presents all under it.

Chrismas parties officially begin today for me. Our work party is today and one of the doctors has already given us our gifts and his hand drawn Christmas card. If I can get my scanner to work I will have to scan it to show all of you. They are amazing. He does it every year. Here is a link where you can see his 2006 card. http://main.uab.edu/Sites/reporter/articles/40058/

Tomorrow I think we are going to go to my sisters and bake goodies to take to my Grandmother and Aunts.  Then tomorrow night we are having a party at Dustins moms.

Then more partying on Christmas eve and Christmas day.

Let the fun begin.

I have to charge my camera so I will be able to take lots of pictures.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I have been super busy at work this week because on top of all of my usual work I have been doing this:




We have been decorating for Christmas. We still have more lights to put up and decorate the tree. It's starting to look a lot like Christmas (and feel like it too. It is freezing here today).

We are going tonight to finish up our Christmas shopping. Yeah!! I am so ready to be done with it so I can actually enjoy the holidays.

Well I guess it's time for me to go put some lights on our poor little tree.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
