Kitty Kisses and Lot's of Words!

Sorry! This is another post about Landon and it might be boring and kind of long for some of you but I had to document all of the words he has been saying! He has been talking up a storm, his little mind amazes me! I only pray that I am doing everything I should be to help him learn more and more everyday! Here are all the words he is saying, hopefully I haven't forgotten any! Oh, and of course he says them all in his own little way. I tried to spell out the words that he says for some of them.

Bubble, Ball, Mama, Dada, Bubba (his nickname), Boon (Balloon), Elbow, Belly, Eye, In (Chin), Cheek, Hi, Up, Off, Done, Gen (Again), Uh Oh, Broom, Titty (Kitty), Doddy (Doggy), Bye bye, Wall, Bachama (Vacuum-don't aske me where he got that word), Peas (Please), Duck, Clock, Potty, Baby, Nana (Banana), Cracker, Candy, Cookie, Sucker, Apple, Juice, (Muck) Milk, (Otter) Water, Spoon, Fork, Knife, Cheese, Teef (Teeth), Belly Button, Poopy, Pee pee, Bee, Big, (Ider) Spider, Star, Puter (Computer-of course only in this day and age), Jesus-my favorite, Sock, Snack, Truck, Tractor, Bus, La Mow (Lawn Mower), Choo Choo (Train), Stick, Rock, Walk, Ditty (Dirty), Raining, Light, Fan, Stuck, Yuck, Shoes, Bowl, Tar (Guitar), Book, Brush, Candle, Bum, Fishies, Hat, Hot, Owey, Piano, Kiss, Night Night, Elmo, Tunnel, No

Also, our cat Ebony has always had quite the attitude but I have been pretty impressed with how well she has done with Landon. She will hiss at him from time to time when he gets a little too rough but for the most part she is patient, especially when he tries to give her kisses. In the video you can hear him say one of his favorite words. When he sees her in the morning he say's "ohhhhh titty."

Fall Festival

After sitting on the 279 in the car for over an hour waiting for construction (ugh!) we finally made it to Zelienople for our annual fall festival outing. Such a cute little town with lots of yummy food and cute craft booths.

Landon was fascinated by and couldn't take his eyes off a band playing country music. He is really into guitar's. "Tar, tar!" Cute!

They had the cutest little petting zoo. Landon has no fear when it comes to animals. He even got to ride on a horsey! Oh man, that was the highlight of our trip. So fun!

Clogging, Forts, Grandma, Crafts, and Suckers!!!

What wonderful things!

I am so excited because I have found a clogging class!! I started clogging when I was about 14 years old and clogged up until college. I love dancing and performing and have really missed it. I started searching for a clogging class online a couple years ago after seeing a group perform at a fall festival. I had no luck at finding anything. I started my search again a few weeks ago (after seeing the Fab 5 cloggers perform on America's Got Talent--awesome!) and finally came across a group that meets fairly close to our home. I had to blow the dust off my old shoes but went last night...it was so much fun!! Can't wait to go every week and get my clog on!

I can't tell you how sad I am that summer is over...no more playing in the backyard. Boo hoo! Guess I will have to start really getting creative. Forts are always fun, right??

My mom came out to visit last week while Tyson was on a hunting trip in Ohio with a few of his friends. He shot a big buck but couldn't find it which was a bummer, I was hoping for the meat! He forgot his camera on the trip but maybe I can get my hands on a picture of him in all is camo gear that one of the other guys took so I can post it. He had a great "male bonding" time! Anyway, the weather was horrible while she was here but we managed to get out one day to the strip district to look through shops and get some yummy popcorn. She had fun playing with Landon and Landon loved giving his grandma kisses. We also had fun with our tradition of crafts during conference. I made little wooden Christmas tags and my mom made a beautiful floral arrangement for me. Isn't she sooo talented?? I was glad she was here to keep me company while my hubby was gone. Thanks mom, we miss you.

I needed to get a few things done and Landon was being really, really needy. Hmmm, what could I give him to distract him for just a moment so I could finish the laundry? Ah hah! A sucker! He loved it. I might use this technique again! Does that make me a bad mom? :)
