Some Holiday Cheer

If you read the previous post, then you know that Landry received this adorable rocking frog for Christmas from G.G. and Poppie. Here is a video of our little ham enjoying his first ride on Fergie Frog...no, that is not the name we gave it. Can I just tell you that this child only took one nap ALL day...I'm not sure if he was giddy in this video or just delirious. :o)

Merry Christmas!

I cannot even begin to express what a wonderful day we had filled with family, love, laughter, and joy...so I won't! :o) Here are some pictures from our day that highlight our first Christmas together as a family of THREE!!!

Landry with his first present...not so sure what to do with it. I'll just sit back here and let you open them for me, Mom!
Ooops...I forgot...I'm Mr. Serious...kinda!
The Krusers - Chad, Landry, me, my mom (Dale/Nawnie), and my dad (Kim/Papa)
The Lofgrens - Chad's dad (Todd/Poppie), Chad, Landry, me, and Chad's mom (Pam/G.G.)
My sweet family!
My nana, me, Landry, and Chad
Nothing like a mini photo shoot before we open presents!

Look at the cool rocking frog Poppie and G.G. got me!
Look, I can rock with no hands and my tongue sticking out!
Okay, Mom...I'll put my hands back on the handlebars!

As I said...it was an absolutely great day...filled with the ones we love! We hope that you and your family had a Christmas just a wonderful as ours!

Lights, camera, Santa!

Last night our group of friends all got together so that we could walk the "Clovis Christmas Tree Lane"...also known as the Wawona neighborhood and Cany Cane Lane...even though there used to be a different neighborhood in Clovis that was Candy Cane Lane...so, I'm not sure what this one is actually called...if there is even an "official" name for it. Anyway, enough about that. We lucked out and the weather was great! It wasn't rainy and it wasn't freezing cold either. Here we are all ready to go: In front of some lights...

My two boys...
I couldn't pass this up...just because our last name starts with an L, so I thought it was kind of funny...I said kinda...not extremely! :o)

And of course you can't have your first Christmas without a picture with Santa. In typical baby/small child fashion...here is the story of our Santa picture. Landry is once again wondering why in the world I am acting like a crazy person to try and get him to smile. You see who won this one...Mr. Serious
Then he decides to take a look and see who is holding him...Mr. Serious turns into Mr. I'm Not So Sure About This...

And finally, the shot that every family has to have...the one where the child has that scared look on their face and you know the screaming is about to begin...Mr. Get Me Out of Here!
All in all, it was a great night of friends, fun, lights, and some good 'ol "holiday cheer!"

My Little Reader

Take a look at my little reader! Don't you love the way he has his arm up on the armrest and he has such a serious look on his face. Don't let him fool you...he is a total goofball!

And the stockings were hung...

by the chimney with care!

Yup, you guessed it...I have been letting my creative juices flow this weekend! One of my favorite things about Christmas as a kid was hanging up our stockings. So, naturally I was very excited to be able to hang up our stockings...our family of stockings. I debated for awhile about whether or not I would just buy Landry a stocking or if I would make it. There was one at Pottery Barn that I loved but part of me felt that it wouldn't be the same as having one that was homemade. So, I decided to do my own version of the Pottery Barn one I loved...and I must admit...I am pretty proud of myself! Those of you that know me and my type A personality...I made one for Chad and me as well...because there was no way that I was going to have one homemade stocking an two store bought.

Here they are hanging from our mantle and I have to say...it automatically made our living room feel so much more homey and personal. I love them!

7 month update

So, my update this month is going to be pretty short and sweet. You wanna know why...well, I happen to have a 7 month old who loves to sit on my lap and type with me. Yup. It's official. He is a techie! So, excuse me if there are some errors. I challenge you to try and type anything with a tech-loving 7 month old on your lap!

Here is this month's pic with lion: And now...drumroll please...yes, he struck this pose all on his own...the 7 month old GQ poseAnd now...just a little holiday cheer for you:

Oh, ya...have I mentioned how much I love this absolutely amazing, fabulous, loving, giggle-filled, army-crawling, food-loving, sweet, little boy? Mmhmm...a million bizillion times. That's how much.
