We have been SO busy lately.  Even if we aren't going somewhere everyday, life with an 18 month old keeps us busy :)  This is such a fun age!! He is learning so much SO fast.  I really want to start blogging more often.  I think it would be a great way to keep up with our life.  I am going to try and find time to blog about our days!  I will start with posting about our trip to the Tennessee Aquarium last Friday.

  Justin's grandpa Norman and his girlfriend Gail were here visiting from Virginia last week.  We spent every afternoon and night at his parents house spending time with them.  Friday we went to the Tennessee Aquarium.  We left our house about 7:30. Stacey rode with us.  Landen was very good on the ride there.  It only took about 2 and 1/2 hours.  We watched Handy Manny most the way :)  I had never been to that aquarium so I was looking forward to it. 
This is a giant spider crab.  We thought it looked cool!

We took Landen's puppy dog leash instead of his stroller so he could walk around and run off energy! 

He is SUCH a papaw's boy!! He didn't want anything to do with the rest of us.

  He LOVED the penquins! I think they were his favorite (and mine too!). They had these statues to take pictures with. I love this... it looks like he is riding the penquin like a horse!!

  He kept saying WOW everytime we saw something new.  It was SO cute.  He got a stuffed animal penquin as a souvenir.  We spent about 3 hours at the aquarium and on our way home we stopped at Arby's for lunch.  Landen got 2 toys in his kid's meal because the cashier thought he was so cute :).  He slept on the way home to get ready for his night at Granna and Poppy's house. We had tickets to the George Strait, Reba, and LeeAnn Womack concert!! I won them from WZZK the previous Friday.  We were so excited about the concert but it made a VERY long day!  The concert was in Birmingham at 7pm.  

It was the best concert I have ever been to!  (although I have only been to 4 others...). We got home at 1am!!!  It was a very long day, but full of great memories! 

 This was Saturday before Grandpa left.  4 Generations!
     Also on Saturday was the Bama game....  ~ROLL TIDE~

30 Day Blog Journal

 I have been slacking lately on my blogging!  I really want to work on it since it is such a good way to remember our life :)  I decided to do this 30 day blog journal even though I am 3 days behind!

Day 1- Favorite Song--
This is a really hard decision!  I love music!  I think right now my favorite song is Something Beautiful--NeedToBreathe.   I also really like The House That Built Me--Miranda Lambert.  I love lots of other songs but we would be here all day :)

Day 2-- Favorite Movie--
We used to watch movies all the time so I have several favorites.  We still watch them on the weekends after Landen is in bed. 
My favorite two movies are-- 
Dirty Dancing and Grease

I also love The Notebook, The Twilight Saga, Cinderella Story, P.S. I love you, and Father of the Bride I and II.  I could go on all day about movies I love!  That is one of our favorite things to do!

 Day 3--Favorite Television Program--
We love Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Desperate Housewives

This summer we watched True Beauty, Pretty Little Liars, and I watched Bachlorette!  Justin wasn't crazy about it but he likes the others.   Usually around here our TV has one of these on---

But I wouldn't change a thing!!!  We love these shows now because Landen LOVES them! He gets so excited when they come on :)

Show Us Your Life--Kids Names/Future Kids Names

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

 I have always thought a lot about baby names. I have always known I wanted to have babies when I got older and I love reading baby name books!  When I got pregnant with our son it took us a few weeks to agree on a name for him. I knew we were using Ray as a middle name for a boy because Ray is Justins middle name, his dads middle name, and my step dads middle name. I LOVE family names! We finally decided on....

I love that his name is spelled different than most boys with that name. Hopefully he will not be named the same as ten other boys in his class in school.

For a girl we had...


I still REALLY like Leigh, but Brooklyn has become very trendy and I know a lot of girls with that name.  I would like to use Leigh as a first name but I can't think of a middle name for it.  I also love ELLA and KATE.  
 We have a while to think of other names, since we are planning on waiting a while for a second baby.

WOW! It has been a long time since I have posted anything.  We have been SO busy lately and this whole week Landen has been sick.  He started out with an eye infection and now he has a horrible cough and is really ill so we go back to see the dr today. Hopefully he can give him something to help. 

  I can't believe that Landen is almost a year old!!  Time really flies.  He will be 11 months on the 11th and last Tuesday he weighed 23 pounds!! He is learning all kinds of new things.  His favorite thing is clapping.  It is so cute :)  I will post all his new things and more about him on the 11th (when I can do his 11 month post).  This weekend we are making his birthday pictures to use for his invitations.  His party is going to be Elmo and I am making really cute invitations and decorations with the Cricut machine my mom got for Christmas. 
This is my sweet mess maker :)
