Bama Rising

Two months ago today on April 27, 2011 Alabama was hit hard with a tornado outbreak. Soon after it happened Bama Rising was founded. On June 14 they put together a benefit concert. My niece and I went and it was wonderful. Here are some pictures from the concert.

Dale Jr
Montgomery Gentry

The Commadores
 Luke Bryan
 Little Big Town
 Jay Barker and Kirk Herbstreit
 Martina McBride
 Dierks Bentley
Sheryl Crow

It was an amazing night and a awesome line up. The musicians were The Blind Boys of Alabama, Alabama, Luke Bryan, Taylor Hicks, Bo Bice, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Ashton Shepherd, Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Sheryl Crow, Montgomery Gentry, Little Big Town,Rodney Atkins, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, David Nail, the Commadores, and Brad Paisley. Also there was Dale Jr, Jay Barker, Kirk Herbstreit, and Paul Finebaum. The concert started at 7:30 and ended around 1:00 and it was on a Tuesday night. I am so glad that I took off work on Wednesday. I don't think I would have been able to make it. The best part of the night was when Brad Paisley and Alabama sang "Old Alabama" together. It was amazing. I will try to post the video soon.

McWane Center

A couple of weeks ago I took Landon to the McWane Science Center. He loved it so much that we are going to be getting him (and the rest of us a membership for his birthday).
Playing with water.


Digging for fossils.

Playing with puppets. 

The huge light bright.

Stoping for a picture in the Imagination Playground.

Posting two days in a row, I'm on a roll. ha. Of course this post will have no pictures because my computer is broke and I can't post pictures from my iPhone (well I may be able to, I just don't know how).

Anyway, Landon went on his first (well really second but the first was only just a quick stop by and it was to cold to do anything) beach trip this past weekend. We went to Destin with my sister and Landon loved every minute of it. We left on Thursday and all week last week Landon would get so mad because each day he woke up and thought it was the day we were going to the beach. He cried when we had to tell him just a couple of more days, He would say no I want go beach right now. He loved playing in the sand with all his sand toys. He was a little afraid of the ocean at first but by Saturday afternoon he was all the way out in the middle of it with us. He also loved the kiddie pool at the condo. He called it the baby swimming pool he liked that there were lots of other kids there for him to play with.

We didn't do much of anything besides stay at the beach and the pool. We did go eat at Fudpuckers where Landon got to pet a real alligator. He kept saying I wanna pet a alligator and I thought that when we got up there he wouldn't do it but he rubbed its back and squeezed his leg and it even gave him five. I kind of felt sorry for the gator after we left. We also ate at Hammerheads it was delish and it was in the cutest little village.

I got super burnt but Landon of course got a nice tan even wearing SPF 50.

We went to the beach for just a few minutes on Sunday before we came home to take some pictures but he thought we were there to play and go swimming. He got so upset when we had to leave. He can't wait to go back again. Every night when we are getting ready for bed. He says I fun at beach. He is too funny.

Also if you didn't see the post from yesterday, Landon is in a cutest kid contest on Facebook. A lady that took our family pictures a few weeks ago is hosting it. If he wins we will win free prints (which we could really use). If you have a facebook all you have to do is go visit Jennifer Branham Photography and "like" her page. Then under her cutest kid contest photo album click on Landon's picture and leave a comment to vote you do have to leave a comment just liking it doesn't count. His picture is picture number 30. I would really appreciate it if you took the time to vote.

Cutest Kid Contest!

Sorry for my lack of blogging, less than a week after we got our computer fixed it broke again. We are about to have to break down and buy a new one. There is only so much we can do from my iPad and our iPhones. I still read all of your blogs everyday from my phone but it is so hard to post from there. I plan to be back blogging every day very soon.

Anyway Landon is in a Cutest Kid Contest on Facebook and I thought I would ask all you if you had a minute to go and vote for him. All you have to do is go and "like" Jennifer Branham Photography (she is awesome by the way) and just leave a comment under Landon's photo in her cutest kid contest album. You have to leave a comment just liking the picture does not count. I believe his picture is number 30 out of the 50. He is wearing a blue shirt and is in front of a red background. Also if you want to add me as a friend first I am under Brandi Guthrie Stanford.

Thank you all in advance!

Weekend Recap

Friday night my niece and me went to see Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, and Jerrod Niemann. It was a great concert. I will post pictures sometime this week.

Saturday morning we had to take Dustin's grandmother home. She had been here staying with Dustin's mom for a few weeks. Saturday night we all went out to eat at this place that has delicious catfish. Landon was so funny while we were there he got chicken fries and after he would take a bite of one he would say "I love chicken" and we found out that he loves slaw, he ate almost my entire bowl of it.

Sunday morning as soon as we woke up I dropped my iPhone in the toilet (I was and still am devastated). I still don't have a phone. Sunday afternoon Landon and me went to Walmart with my sister. I had to get a few groceries and she wanted to let Landon pick him out something for Valentine's day. She decided to let him get a movie and so when we got over to the movies she let him out of the buggy and he ran up to the DVDs and said "Oh my gosh, I love it. It's my favorite" to every movie. She got him a Yo Gabba Gabba movie and I got him one that had a bunch of different shows on it. After that we went over to Granna house to play outside because it was such a nice day yesterday. Landon got to blow bubbles and play with his 3D sidewalk chalk. We also went and got frozen yogurt which is Landon's favorite.

Today Landon was having a Valentines party at daycare. So he went to daycare with his little valentines cards and some m&m's to give to all his friends. I wish I could have been there to get pictures.

I hope all of you  had a wonderful weekend and are having a great Valentine's Day!!

Five Question Friday

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?
That's a tough one. I would love to be on either show.ha. But I guess I would have to say What not to Wear because the families that are on Extreme Home Make Over all have such sad stories and luckily I am not in any situation like that.

2. Do you have any tattoos?

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?
Well my son is only two so he probably doesn't care right now but I am sure I will tell him somethings as he gets older.

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?
It depends. If I am really close then I might speed up or if I am in a hurry but usually I stop.

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?
Both are delish but I prefer chips over chocolate most of the time.

Potty Training

We have began to potty train Landon. He will go whenever we ask him if he wants to potty but he doesn't tell us that often that he has to go. Anybody have any potty training advice?? Help..

Like I said he doesn't usually tell us that he has to go but the other night we were all laying in bed and and he said that he need to go potty so his daddy got up to take him, Landon looked at me and said "I be back in five minutes mommy". It was so cute. He also cracks me up when he goes #2. He will push and push and when he is all done he says "Feels better mommy".

I have a question for all of you. Did or do your children have to take off there pants and everything before they will use the potty. Landon has to have his shoes and pants completely off before he will use the potty. I am completely fine with that at home but I don't want to take him to a public bathroom and have to pull off all of his clothes. Any suggestions??

Show Us Your Life...What your kids eat.

Today over at Kelly's Korner is Show Us Your Life..What your kids eat.

I am pretty lucky Landon eats just about anything. He eats mostly the same things we eat. I really try to feed him healthy things. Some of his favorite things to eat right now are:

  • Hot dogs- I think he could eat about 5 hot dogs in one sitting.
  • Chicken nuggets/fingers/tenders- He loves just about any kind of chicken but his favorite is grilled chicken tenders from Cracker Barrel.
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Spaghetti
  • Green beans
  • Corn
  • Soups-He loves veggie soup.
  • Oatmeal
  • Biscuits
  • Sausage
  • Pizza
He also can eat some pretty strange things for a two year old. He loves and I am talking loves him some raw onions (Gross) He gets that from his daddy though. He loves spinach dip and salsa. Another one of his favorite things to snack on are chips and crackers.

He will eat pretty much anything. I haven't found to many things that he won't eat. He used to not like peaches but now he loves them.

Bed Time Conversations With a Two Year Old

My favorite part of the day has quickly become bed time. I think it may be Landon favorite part of the day too. He loves to get under the cover and snuggle with mommy and daddy.

Then I will always ask him what he wants to talk about. He is so cute because he always goes ummmm then he says whatever he wants to talk about (which is usually rainbows. I am not really sure why he loves them so much) he likes to talk about what color the rainbows are. He always says the three colors that he knows that are in the rainbow (green,orange,and yellow or ellow as Landon says) then I name all the other colors that are in the rainbow and he repeats them.

Then we might talk about a variety of things. Some of his favorite things to talk about are camels, dinosaurs, barney, hannah (my niece), forts (his new favorite thing to do), Payton (pey pey his best friend at daycare), and pom pom (my aunt and his daycare teacher), and who knows what else he is always coming up with something new.

After all of that, I am ready to go to sleep but I think he could talk all night long. I will tell him ok mommy needs to go to sleep now. He usually says ok mommy. Goodnight I love you. Then he will rub my face and say sweet dreams. It is the most precious thing ever!
