Jim and I kept the secret from the boys that we were surprising Ian with a birthday party..we decided to do it on Whacky Wednesday (early release day from school) so we held it from 2 til 4pm at a new location in the mall..it was called Extreme fun..we had the entire place to ourselves and the party..we had around 20 kids and their parents..the kids loved the Madagascar theme and the party was a blast...and Ian was in complete shock when we realized what was happening..I picked up Nolan's best friend for the afternoon along with Norah and I feed them lunch at the food court that afternoon..Nolan said to me "mom is there a birthday party that is going to be happening?" he is 5..I laughed so hard..love him! Thank you to all the guests who were able to attend the party!
I am excited to start blogging again..my bff told me about a site that allows us to read books and give our book reviews..we have to post them on our blog...I love reading books..so this will be a special treat for me!!

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and sign up for the conference. We will leave next August on Thursday, August 19th and come home on Saturday night August 21st.
My friend Candace, knows a guy who is house sitting for this family while they travel across the United States to Alaska on their bike with their 3 kids. I think it is an awesome life lesson and once in a lifetime experience. What do you think about them?
Our 11 year old neice, Kirstin decided to run for Princess from her hometown days..there was her and another young girl running along with the Queen's court and the Jr. Princess court. We decided to surprise her and show up for the show. Little to our surprise she was chosen! You should have heard her speech she wrote..it was the best speech there of the entire night..even from the older high school girls who ran for queen..I was shocked! I did not know she could write the well for being only 11 years old. We were all so proud of Kristin. We love you! Kirstin had just been crowned the 2009 Princess..I love her smile of excitement here! Of course Nolan could not stop eyeing those cookies that sat behind us all night and he was so happy when he could finally sample his fair share of cookies and punch..lol Tim, such a proud daddy momment for him with Kirstin! Grandma and Princess Kirsten Landon, Aunt Laura and Kirstin
