Welcome Landen!

It was a super crazy week when Mr. Landen decided he wanted to come into the world a little too early! We heard Krista went into labor last Tuesday, so we patiently waited all day to hear what was happening. That evening, it sounded like she wasn't going to stay pregnant through the night, so we dropped everything and ran to Fargo as soon as we could! She did an awesome job keeping him in 3 more days, long enough for the steroids to take effect and help his tiny lungs. Landen Shane was born Friday, January 7th at just 3 lb 9 oz, 16 in. He is so little, yet so perfect! He's doing a great job breathing with just a nasal cannula. Gavin can't wait to meet his new little cousin, and he's saving lots of kisses just for him! Love you so much little buddy - welcome to our family!

Disney Pics!

I wanted this yummy caramel apple all week, and as soon as I got it, Gavin wanted to switch and he ended up eating most of it! Oh well....

SO EXCITED they had fast passes for Toy Story!

Gavin loved the aquarium, both boys could have stayed there for hours looking at all the sea life! and yes.... he did where his pirate stuff everywhere, including the sword!

super jazzed they got cupcakes for breakfast! what the heck, we were on vacation!

Dance Party!

I know that this post is way over due - but what a whirlwind we have been in lately! We haven't stopped moving since we got back from our trip! We had an amazing time in Disney World again this year! Gavin had a blast going on the rides and meeting the characters! The weather was cold! But that didn't stop us from going out and having a good time. It did, however, prevent us from doing any swimming at all in the cool pool, but Gavin didn't seem to mind too much. His favorite rides this year, were Toy Story Mania, Test Track, Buzz and the People Mover. We ate breakfast at Chef Mickey's and got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald, they boys had so much fun! His favorite characters were Buzz and Woody, of course! He was so excited when we were waiting to meet them, and afterward, he couldn't stop smiling... he kept saying "Woody really liked me mom!" Overall, he was really well behaved. There was one night in EPCOT, when Bryan and Eric were at the ESPN club, that the long day got to Gavin and he was a little, shall we say, out of control. He actually bit me and threw a complete tantrum in the middle of the street. But, I am choosing to forget that happened and just remember how sweet he was the other days! One of the highlights of the trip was the night we went to the kids dance party at Hollywood Studios. The kids had a BLAST dancing, they even got to dance with all the characters that were there! We made so many wonderful memories and can't wait to go back next year!
