a mother's love

I was reading a blog post yesterday about the relationship between a Mother and her two girls. This blog post made me cry, but it was a happy cry. Kelle is simply the Mother I aspire to be. I love the connection she has with, not only her two girls, but the connection she has with the world. Her blog is worth reading. It's a feel good blog. Nothing gets her down and the simplest things send her soaring up to the clouds. She's positive, creative, warm, loving, a terrific writer...and did I mention she's a photog, too? Amazing pictures of her little ones, amazing. She captures every little detail, like me. I love this woman. Is it wrong to love someone you've never met and of the same sex? Her heart is open and full of love to give. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Did I mention amazing?  I'm lubbing life too, Kelle.

six is special

I made this for Landon in honor of his sixth birthday, which was back in October. A little late, I know. I thought I would play around anyway. I take pictures ALL the time, so I wasn't sure what photo I wanted to use or what fun thing to do. This seemed to fit the bill, even though it's not the best photo of him, I simply couldn't resist that face.

a night with robosapien

I think Liam has found that Landon's remote-controlled Robosapien Robot is his new favorite thing for entertainment. What kid wouldn't like a big, walking, talking, dancing robot, right? The boys had so much fun last night before bed. But, unfortunately everything has to come to an end.

kramer vs. kramer?

No, not what you're thinking. The movie, right? Nah. It's more like a television show in this case. I'm not a big fan of "Seinfeld", but the first thing I thought of when I saw Liam's hair was Cosmo Kramer. That man has some seriously wild hair, and Liam's, well, let's just say it wasn't subtle. I died laughing.

bee mania

I went to check on Peyton out in our back yard when I noticed a nice layer of bees swarming my grass, flowers, weeds, or whatever you want to call that stuff growing in my yard. Landon got a little freaked out by how many there were and he didn't know where to step to get back inside. I clearly didn't want to start off our weekend with a bunch of bee stings, so I guided him safely back indoors. And, did I mention how miserably hot it is outside? Landon wanted to play until the bees and scorching weather quickly changed his mind. While I was out there, I took a couple of photos of my little nectar-loving neighbors. So, it looks like a nice day in the air conditioning playing with his baby Brother and watching TV. Phew, I'm just glad I'm off the hook!

woody and me

I don't know where this Woody doll came from. I'm assuming that one of the kids left it at our house during a play date by accident. Anyway, Landon is super attached to this little guy. Sometimes I do feel he goes a little "Sid" on us and throws poor Woody all over the place, and drags him by his arms and legs. What next, a little TNT? I suppose he doesn't mind, though. I mean, Woody always seems to be smiling so I guess he's okay, right? Right?

to mom, from landon

This is what Landon brought home from school today.  I had to leave the room because I started to cry, especially once I got to the "Handprint Poem".  I kissed him, hugged him tightly and told him how much I loved him.  I don't know how in the world I am going to keep it together come Kindergarten graduation time.  That, my friends, I'm sure will be a sight.  If I know my husband, he'll get me on tape making a complete fool of myself. *sniff, sniff*

This is a book he made for me for Mother's Day


 And, of course, the sappy "Handprint Poem"
