They aren't all sad, promise.

I realized recently my posts were sounding a little sad. But I promise they aren't and won't always be like that!

Focusing on some happier times ... Andy has two days off, works on Friday, then his vacation starts! Yes! I'm so looking forward to having my hubby home for 9 straight days & I don't have to send him off to work. Sadly, it's his last week of vacation until Jan 2011 but I'm sure the time will fly by as it usually does. Between now & then we'll have Layne's birthday party, Halloween, Layne's birthday, Landan's angelversary, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years. Thinking ahead much? 

Since I didn't post about Landan's birthday I thought it would be a good time to do that! Thankfully the day was WONDERFUL! I really thought the You Tube comment from the night before was going to break me. I couldn't fall asleep & was up until the wee hours of the morning (which isn't that unusual, I was just up later than usual) but it didn't. I had two of my amazing friends in from New York to spend over a week with us & it was great to have the company during Landan's birthday.

I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story ...

I love that you call it his angelversary. We lost my brother at the age of 21 and we always celebrate his birthday in August and then his "death day" in January. I never had a better way of putting that date, but I much prefer angelversary.

Thank you Dana ((Hugs))

LB - Aww, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother! I love calling it "angelversary" makes death sound less harsh. ((Hugs))
