MAIL!!! MAIL!!!! I got mail!!!!

Landon loves to check the mail and he usually reminds us everyday that we need to check the mail. We usually give him the junk mail or all the credit cards from the junk mail. He has never really gotten anything since he has been big enough to know it was for him until the other day. He got a package from Noahs older sister, His Aunt Emma. He was so thrilled when we got it out of the package slot and I told him that it was for him and showed him his name on it. He was so proud carrying the box in the house all by himself. He had his chest stuck out and walked so tall. It was so cute to watch. We went and sat on the couch and talked about the Hippo that Emma drew and talked about who it was from. He was so excited to open it. We cut it so we could save the front pictures (its on our fridge and he says "Hippo, Tank u Emma." whenever he sees it) and opened the box. He got two pairs of CROCS, his favorite shoes. He can put them on and take them off and get them wet and have a potty accident and not feel yucky in his shoes. He wanted to wear them all day. He wore a red and a navy and then both red ect. He was just thrilled. He grabbed the first pair. OH SHOES!!!!! then wore those for a bit. Came back and his eyes got huge.... MORE SHOES!!!! ( he is a shoe fanatic, he loves shoes and changes them all day long. He is very much into matching) so he got those out and wore them. Then he discovered the barrel of monkeys in the box and counted them and played with them for awhile. He still wants to wear the shoes all over, but they are a little big and he has to grow into them, however he keeps them on his feet pretty good.

THANK YOU AUNT EMMA for such a wonderful and thoughtful gift. Landon is very blessed to have an Aunt like you!!!!!

PS He just ate lunch so ignore the messy face!!!! I swear we bathe him!!!!

It's been too long since I've checked out your blog and your babies are getting big. I can't believe you're almost there. And this cute little Landon of yours. That's so much fun. The picture of being thrown in the air ... yeah, my kids getting tossed that high would freak me out too.=) Glen likes to twist Alex is the air still ... I just can't watch. And the dolls. Putting them all to bed and saying hi to them. That is sooooo stinkin cute. You're such an AWESOME mom Aurie and I wish you luck with the rest of the pregnancy and the fun to come. Love ya and miss ya -- Jamie

That's so funny, Erica does the same thing. Every day we drive home she yells "mail" as we pull into our neighborhood and then gets excited when we let her keep the junk mail. Kids are so sweet.
