Spring Concert 2013

How is it possible that my baby's first year of school is coming to a close?
Landon has done such a fantastic job all year long, and his spring concert was no exception.  He knocked it out of the park!

 Getting ready to take the stage, and full of smiles...
Here is his class as they just got on the risers.  Of course the kids have to scan the crowd to look for their family.  I think he found us! ;)
Landon absolutely loves music and his music teacher Mrs. Scheidel.  He frequently talks of her, and she frequently sends notes home telling us what a fine young boy he is.

 Grandpa Sam, Grandma Doris and Grandma Debbie all made it!
 Even little bro enjoyed the show.
And of course, a few fun videos.

Family photos

I understand the slide show of photos couldn't be seen last week as I accidentally set the video to private.  Well, I've fixed it, and here they are again!

Traditional Easter photo

Easter weekend means time for our traditional photo by the tree.  We planted this tree Easter weekend when Landon was just a few months old and I've been snapping his photo by it every year since. 

With the late winter/early spring snowstorms, I kind of chuckled to myself last week that this year's photo would have snow in it. While most of the snow in the front yard melted, there is still a little white stuff hanging out in the shady bushes. 

And year's past...

Eggs, kites and funny photos

This pretty much sums up our Easter this year.  Brightly colored eggs, high flying kites and funny family photos using the self timer. 

After a tour around the house to scope out what the Easter bunny left, we dressed up in our matching coordinating outfits and headed out to church.  Church was by far the highlight of the day, since it was all about Jesus.  Boy do I love that man and all the sacrifices he gave for me. 
Our very own little Easter bunny...
I know I won't be able to pull off matching outfits for very long, so I have to take advantage of that while I can!
After church, we stopped at my parents house for brunch.  There was so much food to be had, and it's always nice to get together with family!
And as I mentioned, there were some funny family photos taken.  We set the timer and turned on the cheese.
Check out the slideshow below for the time lapse.  Hilarious!
Shortly after lunch, we headed home for a little nap.  It wasn't long after nap time was over and Grandma Debbie came over with some Easter treats for the boys.
There were lots of fun things in their baskets, but Landon was probably most excited about getting a new kite!  He immediately wanted to go try it out, and has been outside after school every night this week practicing his flying skills.

Stay tuned for our traditional Easter photo of the boys by the tree...

A note from school

A lovely little note from school.  I am so proud of the boy that Landon is becoming.  We try and teach him to love God, be respectful and do the right thing.  I love watching this little person inside of him grow...
