Guess who we saw today ..... Cody Linley

After Landry's soccer practice we headed over to the new Market Street store here in Frisco for a special Radio Disney Grand Opening event for the store. Cody Linley was scheduled to be there from 1 pm to 3 pm signing autographs. We got there at a little after 12 and got in line we had a good spot and time passed quickly. The nice people at the store brought out free samples of their smoothies, cookies, and bottles of water for everyone in line - how nice is that! Cody arrived at about 1:05 pm and then the line started moving fast. Kelsey was so excited. She got an autograph and the picture with him. He was a nice guy. Landry and Dave did not stand in line with us instead they walked around the store having samples of cheese and such. Cody plays "Jake Ryan" on Hannah Montana and he is from Lewisville, Texas - very cool! Oh and you can imagine when he got up to the table the screams going on from the girls in line - oh my it was loud!

The kids started school today. My baby girl is growing up. She would not let us walk her back to her classroom this morning :( I was so sad. I did not get to take a picture of her with her teacher. She would not let me take a picture of her outside school this morning either -Landry did :). I did get a picture before we left for school.
After school Kelsey said 5th grade was going to be great. She is looking forward to the science trip they will have this year - it does sound like a lot of fun. I am hoping it will be a great year for both of them. Please keep them in your prayers. :)

Fun day with friends

On this past Tuesday we met our friends Brandi, Britney, & Braden and Christy, Cameron, & Cayden at McDonald's for lunch and some play time then headed over to the movies to see Star Wars the Clone Wars. The boys were so excited to see the movie and take along their toys from lunch that just so happened to be Clone War toys. Hard to believe summer is coming to an end and school is starting on Monday.
Last night we went to "Meet the Teacher" night and met both Kelsey's and Landry's teachers and put away their school supplies. Both teachers were very nice. None of their good friends are in their classes but that just means an opportunity to make more new friends, right?
Here's hoping it is a great school year ahead.

New background ...

We changed up the blog a bit. What do you think of the new back ground and style?
We like it. May need to work on the font colors but for tonight we are happy. :)

Kelsey, the director ....

I had to share what Kelsey's new favorite thing to do is ... make videos. She is getting pretty good at it. She makes her own scripts and is really good at ordering Landry around. Maybe she will be a future Oscar winner. Her current videos are those of her and her friend Alice singing and dancing about (they have a band named Twist 3 :) - they are looking for their 3rd member), she does interviews with Landry, with their Webkinz, and even some Olympic competitions. Never a dull moment here.

As requested ....

I followed your advice and took a picture, not the best mind you I seem to be having problems with my camera this morning. Look at that hunk of missing hair from his bangs. I know just looking at the picture you can not tell how much was cut but trust me there was a pile of hair in the floor. It is fixable and it is only hair, I know. :) What a little goober he is.

Oh My!!

Ok well last night while we are watching the Olympics I glance over and notice Landry is standing with scissors .... yes you know what I am about to say ... He had cut his bangs. Not all of them mind you just a clear up and down cut that looks not so nice. We will be getting that taken care of this next week so he looks nice for his first day of Kindergarten. I did not take a picture. I did cry about it.

....... One thought to add ..... Go Team USA!

Our First Post !!!

WOW! We now have a family blog!! How cool are we? :) My friend, Susan, has such a cute blog and Kelsey thought we should start one too. It will be a great way to keep up with our friends and family. We are really hoping that Brandi starts one so we can check in on the Fox's as they start their new adventure in their new town. We are sure going to miss them.
We are counting the days to the start of school. I am so not believing that Kelsey is a 5th grader! How unbelievable is that? She is a sassy 10 year old already. And little man, Landry is a Kindergartener! Now that is a shocker. I am so hoping he has a great year and makes some good friends. Both kids are playing soccer. Kelsey is returning to her same team but they are graduating to the bigger fields with 11 players on the field. Should be an exciting year. Landry is hoping to be on the same team as his buddy Jaxen. Let's just hope that Landry does some playing this year as in kicking the ball and running after the ball and not doing so many grass angels. ha!
I am looking forward to Kidz World starting back so I can see all my teacher friends again more than we get a chance to in the summer. We are going to have a great year! Again I have to say I am going to so miss Brandi at school!
Landry's hair is so long right now. We really need to get it cut or at least trimmed. The thing is that the longer hair totally matches his personality but I know it must be hot. You tell me does he look like the little boys that play Zach & Cody??
Our Sadie girl is doing good. She has her moments of high energy and then the remainder of the day she spends just resting.
I hope to keep this blog interesting, more so than this orignal post. :)
