I'm back

We got back to Jonesboro about 5:00 tonight. I have never been so glad to be home! I will blog tomorrow on what all we did. I'm just too tired to think tonight!

Father-son bonding time

Jason is a trapper. He traps bobcat, fox, raccoon, possum-whatever he happens to catch. Kordyn has recently decided that he wants to get up early and go with him on Saturdays. Here is Kordyn's first bobcat!

It's so much work!

I have never been away from home for more than probably 2 days without Jason and the boys. But that will be changing come Tuesday. My mother and I are going on a trip to the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, North Carolina (we are going on the Candlelight Christmas Tour). Then, on Thanksgiving Day we are going to Gatlinburg, Tenn to shop and spend lots of money! We won't return until probably Sunday. I can't wait! I am only dreading the drive-I get really bored driving to ElDorado and it's only 5 hours. This is like 9! I am leaving a very clean house and NO dirty laundry-But I'm not expecting it to be like this when I return. As long as my boys are semi-clean and have been fed, I will be happy. Stay tuned for future pics!

Friday Favorites

Well, I am finally getting around to posting my favorites again.
1. Sharpie markers and paint pens. You can decorate all sorts of cool things with these! I've been playing with them this evening and just decorating up a storm.
2. Super Glue. It has come to my rescue today. My glasses broke and it is amazing what you can fix with this stuff and I didn't even glue my fingers together like I did last time. It also was used to fix Landyn's head when he fell a few weeks ago-of course, now I can't get it to come off!
3. Hot Chocolate. McDonald's hot chocolate is really good. I've always loved Cafe Buono's but McD's was good also.
4.Diego movies. I can get laundry folded, the kitchen cleaned, bathrooms cleaned and I even wrapped a few presents all while Landyn watched a new Diego movie. I do believe in TV babysitting. (For the record, he only watches tv when he is in the mood. Mostly he runs around in his underwear with his guitar and sings!)

That's all, folks!

One for the memory book

As a parent, there are times when you just stop and have to say "What was he thinking?" Well, Wednesday was one of those moments. Kordyn learned an important lesson (along with after-school detention with 4 friends). I struggle with remembering that he is just 10; even though he talks like an adult:)
I'm sure next week, we'll look back on this and maybe snicker a little.

Landyn is recovering from sugery and is one grumpy little boy!
He has enjoyed having a few visitors like: Nana, Mamie, Peet, Emma. He is going to think that it is either Christmas or his birthday since he keeps getting get-well gifts.
Nana was our hero this weekend. She kept Landyn entertained very well(I think he climbed all over her while she was trying to rest). Thank you, Nana!

Home, Sweet, Home

We got home about 10:00. Landyn did great. He is just grumpy and dozing on and off. After they gave him "spiderman" juice and checked his muscles, he was one doped up little boy!

On Our Way

Nothing like getting up at 4:30 so that everyone can get to the surgery center by 6:00 am. Landyn is really excited to get his tonsils out. He just doesn't know what is fixing to hit him. I'll post later when we get home.

Popsicle Diet

Next Thursday, November 13, Landyn will be on the Popsicle diet-he's having tonsils and adenoids taken out. He has been so sick with strep this fall. I hate for him to have it, but am so looking forward for him to be feeling better! Nana is coming to visit and help us out. Yeah for grandmas!!

What a night!

What a night we've had. The boys and I were leaving Salsa's Grill earlier this evening. Kordyn took off running for the van so Landyn decided to follow, he tripped and fell, his glasses gashed his head right above his eyebrow. So, off to The Children's Clinic we went. I love Dr. Warren Skaug! He was wonderful. No tears as they cleaned it out and used that glue stuff they now have. Landyn even got a bravery certificate for free nuggets from Chick-fil-A! We was also excited to tell everybody that his head had been "beeding". We had to go to Baskin Robbins for gummy bears (He won't eat ice cream-only baby gummy bears!). What a brave boy!!

Pumpkin Pictures (a little late)

Here are a few pics of our pumpkins. We had so much fun this year! Landyn is really into doing fun craft things. Kordyn is really into carving with knives!

Halloween 2008

Kordyn and Landyn had a blast Friday on Halloween. Layne, Kordyn's best friend, came home from school with us and spent the night. We got dressed and went to Mamie and Peet's house for dinner (the annual chili and hot dogs meal!) Then we went to Temple Baptist. That is an awesome church! They do a wonderful job and I love that they give out a story paper in every themed room.
After that, we returned to Mamie and Peet's neighborhood and took all the kids (Kordyn, Layne, his sister Natalie and Landyn) trick or treating. Kordyn was trick, Layne was treat (just look at their wonderfully made shirts-awesome paint job, if I do say so myself!), Natalie was a superstar, and Landyn was Mickey Mouse.
After all of the gathering of candy, we just had to get a picture of the LOOT!!!
