October School Project

For October Landon (and parents) has to decorate a pumpkin. They always say that you can use any material and that you should be as creative as possible. I don't think what we did was really creative but it sure was fun!

Blank pumpkin.
I painted the base coat down because I knew what we were going to do and I knew that if I didn't paint it then the ugly off white color would show.
Outline of the face.
I crumpled up tissue paper, slathered it with glue then had Landon dip the tissue in the glue and stick it on. I did the purple and the green pom-pom with a hot-glue gun so that Landon could have at it with the orange.
I really love how it turned out.

Goose Egg

Landon bumped his head at school on Friday. Long story short...I wasn't contacted and I was VERY angry. They called the house phone but nothing else. After leaving a voice mail and writing an e-mail to the nurse they now know what numbers to call and I was told that it would never happen again..
Anyway. We kept ice on it all weekend since Monday was picture day and I didn't want him all bruised up. Lol. Thank goodness it came down and you couldn't really see it.
Right after he got home with an icepack on his head.
The bump. I guess he was turning around while running and smacked right into a pole, I was proud to hear that he didn't cry at all, the teacher happened to see it and made him go to the nurses office.
Picture Day! All better!
He cracks me up!

Random (waiting for the bus) pictures

Landon is riding the bus to and from school now. It gives me almost 30 min of extra time. Since it's still nice out here we like to wait out on the front lawn (if you can call it that). I love taking pictures of him waiting for the bus to come.

The outfit Matt & Sheenie got him for x-mas.
In the middle of a sneeze!(he was telling me to hold on) Lol.
Kodah wanted to wait with us the other day. He's such a good dog....and his owner isn't half bad either.
He loves us.
Landon's new shoes and backpack.
Waiting to go outside.
This is my new favorite picture of him. I love that kid.

Halloween Crafts Part 1

Landon and I have started making crafts for Halloween. We made a bunch of stuff last night while watching a cute Halloween movie. I have a few more things up that I will try to get pictures of later this week.

Most of the stuff all laid out.
Our ghosts in the tree.
Most of our pumpkins.
We put spider webs everywhere.

I love doing crafts like this with him. He gets so excited and I know we will always cherish these memories.

September School Project

Once a month Landon brings home a craft that the family needs to do together. You can use any type of material. If you know me then you know I have A LOT of craft supplies for Landon. We do a lot of crafts together so I have some pretty random things.
For September we had to decorate a circle to represent our child's face. So we did!

The googly eyes were about the size of a silver dollar. I'm so glad I had big ones, the little ones just didn't look right.
Beans for the hair. This was hard to choose what we wanted to use. Landon's hair is light brown. All we had was yellow or dark brown of everything, then I remembered the beans! It looked perfect!
Red foam heart cut for a mouth.

Pipe cleaner nose and button ears!

I had so much fun making this with Landon and Justin.

Disclaimer: This isn't exactly fun blogging information. I put these up here mostly for our family back home to see them. Most people wouldn't give a crap about what my kid makes for school. Lol.

Keilee Jean!

My sister had her baby! Keilee (key-lee) Jean Lloyd was born on 9/19/09. 9lbs 8oz (and she was 2 weeks early!) It was a long and hard labor but mom and baby are doing fine and are even at home already! I'm so proud of my sister. After being told she would never have a child I can't imagine how she is feeling.
I was also lucky enough to get to be on the phone. I got to hear my nieces first cries. I felt bad that I couldn't be in the room with her like she was with me, but I know that I was there with her as much as I could be.

Waiting in the car because we got there a little early.
