Once again we made our way to the same pumpkin patch that we've been going to year after year. I love seeing Landon in front of the same props that he took photos with in years past.
Landon decided to be a vampire this year for Halloween. He originally wanted to be Michaelangelo, but he thought the mask looked fake. When he saw the vampire costume he liked the dressy, ruffled shirt. So a vampire he was. He made one cute vampire.
Landon's vampire face!
I loved the sunset in the background.
Another one of his vampire faces!
One house had a dance area set up. Kids were to dance for the candy. No kids were participating, but Landon loves to dance and stepped right up to the challenge. His friend even joined in with him. They won a dollar along with the candy!
Landon requested a vampire and bat pumpkin so I couldn't disappoint!
Landon has been in kindergarten for three months now. He's adjusted well to a full day school schedule. He's excelling in class, especially when it comes to reading. His received all "Es" on his first report card and even received a good citizen award for displaying outstanding conduct.
We couldn't be prouder of him. I'll share a few of his first day of school pictures.
The sign didn't help. I held my composure until we dropped Landon off, but once I said "bye" to him at the classroom door I lost it. Landon could not wait for the school day to begin. He took off ahead of us.
Landon's school theme this year is super heroes and his classroom theme is Batman. Talk about the perfect setting for our Landon Love!
Our neighbor/friend was deployed to Afghanistan. Landon looks up to him and now wants to be an "army guy" just like Mr. Jason.
I think Landon's favorite day of the school year so far was "Crazy Hair Day". He still asks us to dye his hair green. He sported a green mohawk that day. I must admit, he was rather cute with it!
I'm excited to see how much he'll learn and grow over this school year. My baby boy is growing up. I'm not at all happy about it, but I love seeing the boy that he's becoming. Mommy and Daddy are very proud of you Landon Love. Keep up the good work!
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.
