7 months down ...

Really - 7 months already! Whew! It's been an amazing, frustrating, fun, tearful, wonderful trip so far!! Teething sucks - period end of story! Playing in the poopy diaper as soon as it comes off - not cool. Splashing all the water out of the tub during bath time - kinda cute - till Daddy slips - then not cool. Rolling over alot - learning to pull up on things - wanting to hold the sippy cup --- amazing things :)

We had a great visit with family in October. It was a short weekend trip for everyone - but it was great to have family around! Landon's dedication at church was wonderful! My mother, Billy's mother, grandmother, sister, her husband and son were able to fly in for the dedication! It was great to have both of Landon's grandmother's and great-grandmother here! My best friend Mary and hubster Martin and their mini-Mart :) Jude made the trip up from St Cloud, locals amazing friends, Jackie, Adam & Brittany (son Noah), Justin & Donna (daughter Coral) were able to attend as well!!! IT WAS GREAT to have sooo many family/friends sharing in this day with us!!!

Enjoying some Mimi time

At the first of October we traveled out to a pumpkin patch with Donna, Justin, Coral and Jackie met us there! It was a fun time! Landon still had issues (well still does ha) sitting up by himself so we leaned him on Coral - I'm not sure that she appreciated it very much but she's a good sport!! The Petty's got a big pumpkin so that we could stick the kiddos down in it later :) HA!!

He kept "falling over" --- he's learning young!!

She was overly annoyed I'm sure


I'm pretty sure Mama Donna was jingling keys :)

I SWEAR this is the ONLY photo of him where he looks like me from when I was little!!

He's got country in him :)

Aunt Jackie

We took about 5 family shots - but this is my fave because EVERY adult is talking trying to get the lil ones to look at the camera :)

The ONLY picture of him not crying

Halloween is not one of my fave holidays - it's kinda annoying honestly. BUT I guess its an unspoken thing that you MUST dress up your child for their first Halloween --- next time around with the first Halloween I will not do much!! We had our list of folks to go see to show him off (and please for the love of candy do not show up to my house with a baby with no teeth who is passed out dressed like a cute lil pumpkin asking for candy - you will get none!) and we made it to ONE house! He got cranky - spit up all over the costume - passed out on the way home. It was fun for me haha! SOOO Amy and Fahey were the only ones we got to go visit --- feel the loooooooove :)

Two of the craziest greatest folks we have met and become friends/family with! It's hard not to love RED SOX FANS!!!!

OK - so pretty sure I got this blog caught up ... School is hard right now on me so I don't do much besides post photos to FB! So for those not on FB I am trying to keep you up with photos!!!

If I don't get back before Thanksgiving hope you all have a blessed one! We are going home the week/end before, Billy works Thanksgiving again this year!!

Till the next blog ....
