A Rapunzel Party

One of Landyn's friends at school is Audrey and she had an awesome party last night! Yes, that is Rapunzel helping to cut the cake! She was awesome: she sang a song to the kids, read a book, played a game and helped with presents.
 After all that, we went outside and lit paper lanterns to let fly just like they did in the Rapunzel movie. It was a little windy so only one did well, the other one caught on fire and had to be stomped out.

 And, it flew!!!

 The best thing, according to Landyn, were the glow sticks!! He made a big circle with his and had to sleep with them beside him hanging up so he could see them!
I'm thinking about hiring Candyce for our next party, she will do anything! And the kids loved her!

A Visitor

I was soooo excited to look up Friday afternoon and see Sara and her little girl, Lola at school! Sara was Landyn's first teacher in the Byrd house at Montessori. I wish I would have taken a picture of Sara with Lola but I wasn't really thinking!! Isn't she adorable?? Sara's blog is on the blogs i read list to the right, The Bell's. It was so fun to get caught up with Sara! Miss her!

Science Fair 2011

Kordyn's Science Fair Project was about gaming. The title was 21337 ot N008? Elite or Newbie?  It was a long process to get the final product! We had 3 snow days and he was out sick for 4 days and couldn't work on it so we were excited when he was finally finished with it!
The paper he wrote was really good!!! He is a really good writer!

Sweetheart Lunch

Landyn and Charley Claire are buddies, and according to them, the kind who are going to get married! I saw them sitting together this week at school so I snapped a picture. Cuties!!

A few of my favorite things....

I have been looking for new kitchen rugs since last May!
 My new razorback bowl and spoon!
 Love this scent: Island Margarita!
 I have bought several of these for Christmas presents and now I have one of my own! One of my kindergarteners gave me this.
 Love this scent: spiced cider
 Collage prints! Walgreens photos are the best quality
Just a few of my favorite things right now!


This week, Kordyn got really sick and had to go to the dr. He had bronchitus with what they thought might be a touch of pneumonia and a stomach virus (that they were concerned was food poisoning!)

He had to go back a few days later to be checked out and make sure he was improving so he could go back to school-he missed 4 days!!! Landyn has had the same cough so we took him with us to get some medicine. We are so ready for everyone to be well and no more dr visits or medicine!!!

btw, Kordyn is much better! Landyn asked the dr if he had any special brownies for diarrhea kids!

Valentine's Day

Landyn was so excited to take his Star Wars Valentines to school to pass out to his friends!

Landyn and Stryker enjoying their ice cream!!

It just keeps on getting worse

so, now we are 2 for 2. Kordyn has a stomach virus and/or food poisoning! And, when we went to the dr, he still had a cough and it is now bronchitis and maybe a little pneumonia! he hasn't been to school all week and can't return until we see the dr on thurs night. if he's not better, then they start running tests to see what is going on. we are really praying he is better by thurs night!!!!! he is really sad: no food that tastes good!!! only a bland diet until he is all better. so, bananas, rice, applesauce, tea and toast. nothing with any sugar in it!

really hoping Landyn's cough isn't what Kordyn has had-taking him to the dr with us thurs if he still has it tho!!!

The Sickies

Since we've been invaded by the sickies, there are no pictures with this post. Because, well, noone wants to see 10 loads of laundry, dirty dishes and a living room filled with toys/junk. I went to bed last night praying that a little fairy would come overnight and clean it all up, but it didn't happen! So, I guess when Mom is sick, the house just falls apart:( On the bright side, I will have plenty to keep me busy when I do start feeling better. Strep throat will just about kill ya!!

Friday Night Fun

Last Friday night, Layne, Kordyn's friend came over to spend the night. Landyn joined them as they played with the Wii. The big boys wouldn't turn around so I could take their picture!!

another busted eye

Landyn fell in the parking lot while going to get his glasses fixed and the edge cut his eyebrow. Luckily, no stitches this time though!! Just a black eyebrow and cut for him to show off to his buddies!

Landyn, the commercial star

Landyn was asked to be a commercial for Liberty Bank. It will not air in Jonesboro, but in the Fayetteville area. Liberty Bank worked with the United Way to fix a playground so they were recreating it and used our playground at school. I took these from inside (and without a flash so noone would know I took them!) It took them probably about 4 or 5 hours to shoot this commercial that will only be about 30 seconds!

 Landyn was helping the man with the wheelbarrow

It was cold out there!! We hope they will give us a copy of it so we can watch the commercial!

Random Pictures

I was looking for a certain picture on my computer and ran across this file with these crazy pictures. Kordyn took these with his DSi. Landyn was soo little!

 Emma is now 8! She was about 4 or 5 here.

 This was when we first started noticing Landyn's eyes crossing which led to his glasses!

 What a baby face!
 Halloween a few years ago
 This was taken when we had a photo shoot at the ASU lake
 Kordyn loved to take pictures and then accesorize them! Daddy is now Mario
 Crazy kid!!

Makes me miss those days when they were younger!!
