All work and no play....

Right now it is 7pm on Saturday February 28th, and Chris went to work at the Resort, and Landon just went to sleep for the night. I'm watching Happy Gilmore on tv and playin on the computer. Dude, Chris has worked so much this week. He worked at the airport for about 45 hours this week..and thats within 4 days...and then tonight and tomorrow he's working 20 hours between the two. See! My husband takes care of us! Landon and I went and worked at the church today, and hung out with Chris for a little bit before he went to work. We took a run this afternoon...and man, it was soo nice to get out of the house and exercise. When the weather starts warming up, Chris and I are going to exercise some more. I lost over 10 pounds when we moved here to Colorado cause we started exercising! The winter always puts on a few pounds though so i'm not stressing too much. I just like being in shape. Overall, Today's been a good day!

Landon and his favorite blanky!

New Toy!

Chris and I wanted to get Landon some of the ALPAHBET magnets for the refrigerator so that it will help him learn his letters. Right now he likes moving them all over the place, and it's really fun to watch him interact with the letters. I look retarded in these pictures but...I wanted to show you me and Landon playing with his new magnets. There is also a picture of Landon holding his blanky! He loves his blanky! I washed it today so it's nice and clean and soft for him for bed tonight. It's getting late...and it's past his bedtime so I've gotta get my munchkin ready for bed.

Free Stuff I saw this on Emily's blog, and it looks like it may be fun! Dude, Emily is more creative than me, so i'm Definitely not the most creative person in the world and I'm not the best at making things, but I'll give it a shot too!

Astle events!

Hi Everyone...
Just wanted to let everyone know how things are goin at the Astle home! Chris has been working hard at the airport, and I still get up with him early everyday to make sure he has breakfast. The airport will close down soon, and Chris will start another job at Beaver Creek Resort. He's been working there on his days off for training, and he said that he likes it, so I'm happy! I've been workin at the church, and Landon has been the best helper! He likes to ride on this little garbage cart thing thats at the church...and it is hilarious. I started making a game out of it and making "vroom vroom" noises, and he cracks up laughin. It's adorable! Landon has taken 2 naps today...I think I wore him out at the church today when we went there to clean so he's napping for the second time right now! He slept for like 3 hours this afternoon from like 10:30am until about 1:30pm, and it was so cute. Around 12:00pm, I took him out of his crib and laid him with me. He just snuggled for awhile until he decided he wanted to wake up and play!
I love being a mom...I dont know how some people like being single. I seriously have the best husband ever...and I really feel like I'm just greatful for what I have. I think about it a lot...when I actually have some time to think...(usually that's when Landon's sleeping or late at night when I'm the only one up). I know that we dont have all the money in the world...but I really feel like it doesn't matter. I appreciate the fact that we have "some" money to live off of...hehe but ya know? Money isn't everything! I'd rather be loved and have a family...than have all the money in the world.
I'm just lucky I guess!

Wing Night

So last night, Chris, me and Landon went to the "Tap Room" in Vail for wing night! It was a lot of fun, and it's only $5.00 a person for all you can eat wings, and they have different types of wings available. A guy that Chris works with at the airport owns the "The Tap Room" and so that's how we heard about the deal. Anyways, we noticed that Landon's Steeler hat is getting too small on him. It's his winter hat...the one that says "Future Steeler". Either his head is getting bigger or his hat is getting smaller.'s both if you think about it! Anyways...gotta go and get ready for another day of being a mommy! I'm finally getting back to babysitting. I was gone visiting Emily, Chad & Rayden for a weekend in Utah last week, and when I got back to Colorado, the family that I tend to...were ALL sick. I usually watch their kids 2 or 3 times a week...and make a good bit of money...however since they were all sick, we didn't wanna get Landon or me sick so we didn't end up babysitting! Too bad! I missed out on the cash...but I also had a week off! It was nice having a break though. Anyways today I'm going back over to their house for another day!

The Zaccheus Family ROCKS!

So lately...I've been working on collecting information for my family history. My church has encouraged us to continue working on it, and so I've been doing that. This past week, I was able to talk to my aunt Solidad for the first time ever. I also was able to talk to my aunt Tita (Alma) and she was really nice to me too! She was, at the time I was talking with her, visiting my grandpa Zaccheus and so I was able to speak with him too. What a blessing that was. I have always wanted to get to know my dad's family, and it was such a great opportunity to be able to talk to my grandpa who adopted my dad when he was very young. He's been really sick, and so I just feel blessed to be able to actually hear his voice...even if I never hear it again. He said that he would really like to meet me and my family, and it just meant a lot because...dude, that's my grandpa!
Anyways, just wanted to share that with ya'll! :)

I have a great husband!

Hey Everyone...just wanted to say hi, and tell everyone that things are going great here at our place! Landon is napping at the I actually have time to post a message! Chris is the best husband ever, and he really works hard for our family. I just wanted everyone to know that I really am lucky! Yesterday I was having the worst day...and he took Landon for about an hour while I cooked dinner...and it was just great! I was so stressed cause Landon kept throwing his chicken on the floor...and soon after it became a game with his sippy cup. I just wasn't really in the mood to play that game while I was cooking so Chris decided to take Landon. Yeah, he's a great husband, and I couldn't ask for anyone better.
Hope you all are doin great!
