Landon's B-Day

(Before the official post: a couple of pix at Red Robin with Kelli, Darrin, and Aliese)

Hey everyone! Just a post to memorialize Landon's 7th birthday.

Landon has been anxiously awaiting his birthday for several weeks. His brothers helped him form a wish list and refine it as he has seen different commercials or seen toy ads in the mail. Well, today we found out that modern advertising targeted directly at children works. Among his favorites are his radio controlled truck from g-ma and g-pa Warby, his shooting target from g-ma and g-pa Fry, and of course the oh so coveted Bendaroos. Thank you for all the wonderful and thoughtful gifts.
We had his family party at noon today with pizza, cake, and ice cream. He was excited to see everyone here just for him. We won't tell him that the free pizza may have had something to do with it. This evening we took him to the restaraunt of his choice. When you think about it, it really was a great choice. Look at the happy clown!

This Week

As I am writing this post, we are watching a 48 hrs mystery about a woman who shoots her husband in his sleep. I am glad I do not have a homicidal wife. I probably would have been removed from this earth long ago. Thanks for your patience, honey.

Anyway, this week has been interesting as we have had the kids home for spring break. Monday was Byron's 13th birthday. We had the family over for the festivities at which time he received his new 16G i-pod touch. Byron was extremely grateful to all who contributed to this gift. Today is Saturday. He has only looked away from it since Monday to sleep, eat, and when his mother wouldn't let him take it on his campout last night. We look forward to getting our son back sometime in the near future.

The kids have been very helpful with the daycare this week. We thought they might be bored but everyone has had a good time. We started a small garden in the back yard so if anyone has any tips or suggestions, please let us know. We are trying a little bit of a lot of different things to see what works good so it should be a good learning experience. That's kind of our theory with our kids, too. Maybe one or two of them will turn out OK. Whatever.

Landon's 7th birthday is coming up next Saturday the 28th. Everyone who would be reading this blog is invited over for lunch at approximately 12 noon (immediately following his 11 am soccer game) to celebrate. If anyone is interested in present ideas I think I heard him say he wanted the 2nd or 3rd season of "The Office". Something like that. Or maybe a kite or skateboard or something.

The End.
