My Boys are My Everything

Logan started Kindergarten in Riley about a week and a half ago. He is really liking school. I am so impressed with the Riley school district, I am so glad we moved here, I couldn't be happier. The teachers here are just remarkable, and you can see they really care about all the kids they teach.

Logan has been cancer free for 2 years now, so he only has to go and get a brain scan once every 6 months. I  am so proud of how far Logan has come since that day of his brain surgery. He has matured and learned so much. I am one of his biggest teachers, I work with him daily to teach him new skills. I have been very lucky to be able to stay at home with him for his first 5 years, he will be going all day in Kindergarten this year. I will miss him greatly, but I know it is time to let him go to school to learn new things, and meet new people. I know he will do great.

Landon is staying home with me this year, he is not quite 2 1/2 yet. I will be working with him when Logan is in school to try and get him ready for preschool next year. There is so much they need to know nowadays its insane, a lot more then when I was young. Landon is talking a lot, and doing a lot of independent things, he doesn't like to hold my hand when we walk, he likes to guide himself,  yeah I know I'm pretty sad, he's growing up, he is a toddler now.

Logan and Landon have a wonderful bond, I am so happy that they look up to each other so much, they play together so well.  I love to see them play and interact together, it makes me so happy inside. The boys love to color, and paint, and read books. Being a mom is really one of the best jobs ever. I am forever thankful for my beautiful children.


My husband is so loving, and caring. We have been together for 6 years. Our relationship gets stronger and better everyday. I am so thankful for his humbleness. He would do anything for our family and myself. He really just wants me to be happy, and I am.

Being Happy

So my husband and I recently bought a house, and we absolutely love it. Its the size we wanted, and its a Ranch Style house. It has a basement too, which we definitely decided the house we bought had to have one.  We have always wanted to live in Riley, and have our kids grow up here. We have been talking about moving here for 6 yrs! Well I'm so glad we finally did, I love it here in Riley. Logan will be in Kindergarten, and our kids will get to grow up in a smaller town.

I always strive to do better each day, to try and eat better, communicate better, strive to improve my marriage, strive to be a better mom, and spend lots of time with my kids, and to make the time to do things for myself. Most importantly I try and find positive in each situation. But I try to improve myself everyday. My family means the world to me.

 My husband is my world, we have gotten thru a lot of hard times with our son, and worked together to make our marriage stronger than ever. My husband is a very supportive man, he is very open. In order to stay positive, u need to surround yourself with people who love and care about you.

 I have the most awesome sister-in -law, she moved closer to us a couple months ago. She has made me realize a lot of things. She has a girl that's my youngest' age. They have a wonderful time together. When her and I are together, we are so happy. We can relate a lot, and laugh together like it's not a thing.

Logan is 5 yrs!

Logan you are 5 yrs old, I cannot believe it. You are one of  the strongest boys I know. You were diagnosed with Brain cancer at 1yr and 10 months.You had brain surgery and you completed 1 1/2 years of Chemotherapy, and are now 1 1/2 yrs in remission. It was harder than words I can write to seem strong when you were going through your cancer, but I'm writing this because it will always be a big part of who you are. You like to watch cartoons, and play with your younger brother. You are a picky eater, just like your dad! You love to go to school and play outside. You are very proud of what you know.

 I will be here for you for the rest of your life and I want you to know that. You are capable of the same things as any other child. You have been in speech therapy for 2 yrs and have come a long ways, I am so proud of you. You will be in Kindergarten next yr, I cannot say how happy I am for you.  I love you so much!
You and I at your last Brain Scan :)

You still go up to Kansas City, to Children's Mercy Hospital every 3 months for a Brain scan, to make sure your Brain cancer has not come back, and Dad and I go up with you. I cant wait to see what life brings for you. You are loving, caring, and sweet, and you have a beautiful smile, my heart melts every time I see it, and I'm just so very thankful you are here with us, I love you!

Landon is 2!

Landon is 2! I cannot believe 2 yrs have already flown by. Landon is quite the talker, and he will say words you ask him to say, and he talks on his own too. His little cousin my niece came down and stayed a week and shes the same age as Landon and they were quite the talkers together, they had so much fun and I had a blast with my sister in law they will be moving soon and will eventually be only a couple hours away, I cannot wait!

Landon insisted on wearing these shoes and sitting like this haha

 But anyway Landon is in size 2T shirts and 24mo-2T pants. He loves to eat his fruits and his vegetables, and he LOVES pickles. He is not picky eater at all.

He loves his trike!
Peek-a-boo :)
Love his silliness!

He loves to play with his toys. Trucks and cars are his best friends. :) He also loves to watch movies and cartoons, he likes to draw(on the walls) I'm trying to enforce drawing on the paper ha! I am so proud of Landon and I am so thankful everyday to have him in my life, I love you so much buddy!

Logan is also doing very well he will be going to Kindergarten and this year has sure been his year to shine. I  am so proud of what he has learned this year in preschool. He is very proud of himself too!

I love being a stay at home mom during the week!
I got my haircut recently and I have really been loving it! I think this will be the style for quite some time! ;)
I wanted to make sure and post this picture because I feel this is very heartwarming. My sisters school class all wore grey shirts in  honor of our son Logan having brain cancer.

This is definitely my new motto for 2014!! The quote says it all! I am who I am. I say what I feel.

This is a picture of me with my nephews. Christmas 2013
The boys and their Aunt Cyndi

Girls fun at Christmas!!

A picture at Christmas!

I look forward to what 2014 has in store for us!

My 2014 resolution is to make time for what is important. You can do anything you set your mind to. Life is too short to dwell or worry about things that really don't matter. Don't make time for people that don't make time for you. Always make time for you and your spouse to spend alone together. Do what makes you happy. Always forgive and forget, and give second chances. BE your own person, nobody wants to see a copycat of someone else.
