But I love it. Landon is my biggest buddy. I love when he comes home from school and tells me about his day. He still loves to snuggle in my bed in the mornings and get his back scratched. I love the way he takes care of Austin and Isaac (most of the time!). He's just a genuinely great kid.
We had a whole weekend of fun to celebrate Land-o's birthday. It started with a Football party. Landon's been planning this party since the "Turkey Bowl" this Thanksgiving. He wanted to divide into teams and have two coaches and.... on and on. I was thinking, nice, I do cake and pizza, the kids play football: easy-breezy party. But our plans got rained out and I had to scramble to find some football-esque activities that were okay for indoors. The party turned out great, despite being trapped inside (we even found a way to do the pinata inside).
This is the invitation:
The kids decorated sugar cookie footballs, played games, opened presents, and went to town ripping apart a giant football pinata. Landon LOVED it.
Monday we went to Denver to the Museum of Science and History. It was great. We met some of our Dental School friends, Chris and Andrea (they were in town visiting their families), at the museum and went to lunch with them too. Awesome to see them. We just picked up right where we left off, even a year later.
