The HILARIOUS faces of Landon...

Before and After

I'll give you one guess of which ones are the before and which ones are the after...(sorry I put them in order, but blogger mixed them up...so now you REALLY have to guess which ones are before and which ones are after)

Aaron and I went to Phantom of the Opera 2 weeks ago. It came to Spokane and so we couldn't pass it up! Let me just say it was AMAZING! We both had never seen the play before just the movie, so it was quite awesome! We sat in the very back row but brought binoculars. If you have never seen Phantom (the play) before, I would recommend going, it's worth it! We couldn't take pics in the theatre but here we are right before we went!

We had to bring Landon with us because he is nursing, so he got to go see Phantom too. When we got to the front of the line to get in, the lady taking our tickets said "where is the baby's ticket?" Aaron and I both thought she was joking!!!! But unfortunately she wasn't.

We ended up getting out of line and going to the ticket sales counter. We told the guy we needed a ticket for the 2 month old, and then he proceeded to tell us it was $30!!! WHAT?? FOR A 2 MONTH OLD!? You have got to be kidding me! He said every beating heart HAS to have a ticket. I told him I wasn't going to pay 30 bucks for an infant who would not even be taking up a seat. Anyway, I guess all my "fit throwing" worked. He gave us a free ticket! YES! Landon did great and slept almost the whole time and didn't make a peep. I guess the moral of the story is, don't bring an infant to the theatre AND throwing a fit works...sometimes.

Wes fell asleep with his favorite stuffed dog on his head the other night. He is a funny sleeper, just like his dad. Sometimes in the middle of the night I can hear him talking in his sleep. The other night I heard him "yelling" at Sydnie in his sleep.

2 weeks ago we went to Pullman for Sydnie's friends b-day party. It was in the coca-cola room (the whole room was coke themed) at a retirement center (this was the most AWESOME place to have a party, it was a blast!) Landon was the hit of the party!

Wes and Syd spend all their time outside, and the other day I found Wes out there reading in the wheelbarrow. SOOO cute I had to grab the camera!

Little Landon is soooo much fun. He REALLY enjoys his bath. I love this pic of him with his bright blue eyes peaking out of his towel. He is now 13 lbs 5 oz. FATTY!

I have been a painting machine. I have painted my whole house (almost) complete with an accent wall. It was A LOT of work but looks sooooo much better (pics to come).

We have been to the pumpkin patch with Wes's school and then a few days later we went again so Syd and Aaron could go. We got YUMMY carmel apples, rode on the train, picked a pumpkin and enjoyed the crisp fall weather! Happy Fall everyone!

My fam has been blogging about some of thier quirks and I thought it was so intersting and funny to read~
Six quirks about me that you probably didn't know:

1. I can NOT go to sleep at night with out washing my face and brushing my teeth. If I accidentally fall asleep before I do this, I will wake up later (or in the middle of the night) and do it!

2. I ONLY sleep with flannel sheets (NO cotton for me!) even in the dead of summer. Flannel is just WAY more cozy!

3. I am addicted to chap-stick. Not just any. It HAS to be Blistex Herbal Answer. If I could only take one thing and be stranded on a desert island, I would literally have to take my chap-stick. (maybe I need therapy)

4. I have a crazy obsession with keeping my kids "ocular cavities" clean (meaning ears, nose etc). If I see ear wax, I run and get a q-tip. If I see boogers, I make them blow until they can't blow anymore. If I see any child (or adult for that matter) pick their nose and eat it, my gag reflex kicks in! BLAHHHH!

5. The only beverage I like is WATER. I would choose this over any other drink....EVER!

6. I like celebrity gossip. There, I said it! Call me shallow but I like to see what those stars are up to! (don't worry I am not obsessed, I just like to see the latest and greatest).

Now you know my crazy little obsessions. I guess the bottom line is: I am pretty picky and maybe a little OCD? Don't judge me! :0) HAHAHA. I want to know your 6 quirks now...

Happy October!

I have been drawing a blank on what to blog about...I am just not too creative in that area, so I will just give a quick update. The weather has been phenomenal and we have been having beautiful sunsets, so I decided to share. Also Landon has been using his neck really well, so here he is showing off his neck muscles!

I love the one of all three kids because it looks like Syd and Wes are "malling" Landon and almost holding them by the neck. This is a typical day for them. I am glad they love their brother so much!

Danner has been working in Spokane for the last month and so he has been to see us a few time. My kids adore Uncle Danner so they have been in heaven! His B-day was yesterday so we had him over for dinner and yummy Lemon cake. The kids helped him blow out his ONE candle! We love Uncle Danner!

Landon is now 2 1/2 months old! He has a little girl-friend that was born 5 weeks after him. They come over to play a lot and here they are lounging around together! SOOOOO cute!
