Walking Update

Since it's been several weeks, I thought I'd give you an update on Landon's walking. You'll have to tilt your head because I took the video with my camera and for some reason I turned the camera to take the video. But you'll get the idea - he's getting better at walking.


Landon and I are playing hooky from church this morning. He had a temperature yesterday and pretty much slept all day (and night). He seems to be feeling better this morning, but now has a very snotty nose. I'm hoping it's just teething issues. We're waiting for some more to poke through any day now. I've probably missed more church in the past 10 months than I have in the past 10 years!

And we're gearing up for a fun, festive, and busy Christmas season! I think the Christmas shopping is nearly done. We've decided not to put a tree up this year. At first, I felt a little scrooge-ish about it, but it's really been a nice relief to not have to take the time, energy, and money to go chop one down (We prefer the real deal). Plus, in the past we've hosted several family gatherings at Christmas and this year we're not hosting any! We'll be at lots of people's houses that do have trees up and we'll just have to soak up the splendor there. Besides Christmas isn't about a tree! It's about Jesus! And He's at our house all the time.

Hooky from church!! Naughty! Jk we missed the 1st service bc she slept til 920, and we don't set an alarm bc she usually gets up at 8-830. Hopefully he is feeling better and the teeth aren't too bad if they come through.
We are making the potatoe soup from yesturdays extravaganza. Thanks again for going with me!

AWWWW! He sure is growing up fast.
Anytime now he will insist on walking everywhere with you (and away from you) Enjoy all the new adventures walking brings!
