"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."

This is what happens when a boy takes a helium balloon into a room with a circulating ceiling fan. The balloon gets caught, the fan stops and the boy starts crying over his "skuck" (stuck) balloon. I pulled at the strings for a few minutes before giving up and deciding that it was just going to become a permanent fixture in my bedroom. One week later I grew tired of not having use of my ceiling fan. I pulled on it a bit more, but that only caused the light globe to fall down. With the use of tongs and a steak knife, all while balancing on a stepping stool on top of my bed, I finally untangled the strings.
The balloon did not make is out unscathed and will serve as a warning for all future helium balloons that are brought through my front door.
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.
