"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, a home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for."

After an afternoon rain shower we can usually be found jumping in the puddles. I always time it to where we go out about half an hour before Landon's bath time. Landon loves to jump in the puddles. He says "pool" for puddles. In fact he calls every body of water a pool, even the ocean. Landon even got Tink in on the puddle fun.
To get the most out of his jumps Landon would run as fast as he could to the end of the puddles and back again.
Puddle jumping reminds me that the greatest joys in life come from the simplest pleasures. The world would be a much better place if everyone took a minute out of their day to jump in a puddle and remember the simpler days of childhood.
Landon, also known as "Landon Love" or "Love Bug" is our pride and joy. Landon is incredibly loving and is always giving the best hugs and kisses. Landon knows that he is adorable and uses it to his advantage. He knows the exact moment to flash his smile so that he is no longer in any trouble. Landon loves playing Candy Land, playing hide and seek, riding his bike and playing with Tinkerbell. His current favorite shows are Super Why, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Caillou. He is obsessed with animals, Cars, and super heroes. Raising Landon these past three years has been quite an adventure and we couldn't imagine life without him.
These days I am best known as "Mommy". I am a snot wiper, boo boo kisser and a boogy monster chaser. I am a chef, a teacher, a nurturer and a comforter. I love taking daily walks, playing at the park with Landon and just enjoying my life as a mom. If by chance I happen to get a spare moment, then I enjoy filling that time by baking, reading, and scrapbooking. I live a very simple life that revolves around Landon and I would have it no other way.
Kevin is an amazing dad to Landon. He loves to play with Landon and read to him. Kevin enjoys spending his free time relaxing on the couch while watching ESPN, reading an occasional book, and cooking.
We consider Tinkerbell our first born. She is an absolutely adorable Pomeranian. Tinkerbell acts like a third parent to Landon and even barks when Landon is doing something that he should not be doing to get our attention. She is so loving and gentle to Landon, even when he is rough and tough with her. We couldn't ask for a better dog for Landon to grow up with.
