Virtual Christmas Card

I was too lazy this year to write up anything in my Christmas card. Instead I just directed everyone here. Then I started thinking I better leave something here worth reading while I'm bon voyaging in the Caribbean. I mean, who wants to look at some generic iPhone when they could be looking at the out-takes from our Christmas card photo shoot? No one, that's who.

So, if you're here from the Christmas card, welcome! Bookmark this site NOW! You totally won't be sorry. Just kidding. This site is way lame. Ask anyone. But here is a little update on us since my card was so information deficient.


So here are my kids in their coordinating outfits. They will all be one year older in January. JBird will be 9. TBone will be 7 and BeeBee will be 3. What the? How did that happen? Totally annoying.

Here is Miss BeeBee. She is my first kid who I do not want to get any older. JBird was the first so I was always looking forward to the next stage. TBone was a little squirtmunch so I couldn't wait for him to outgrow the 2s and 3s. But BeeBee is my widdle punkinpunkin pies. I love her stage right now. I would love for her to stay this way forever but then she'd be considered developmentally challenged eventually and the doctors would probably get involved. It'd be like The Curious Case of BeeBee Landerson... only different. Sorry...what am I talking about? Anyway, she is my lover of all things princess and pink. I'm baffled by this as I got a Tonka truck for my 2nd birthday. It's fun though. We share lip glosses.

Tbone is our martial artist. He is now an orange belt in Tae Kwon Do and only uses his powers for good. He has recently become a fan of school (before that, not so much). This last year he went from Pokemon obsessed to Digimon obsessed to Bakugon obsessed. The Japanese are geniuses. I bet he'll go to Japan on his mission. The greatest thing that has happened to Tbone in the last year is he is finally developing a bit of a conscience. This has been beneficial to everyone, believe me.

JBird! My man. My helper. My rule-enforcer. He is the ultimate big brother. Bossy in all the right ways yet empathetic to his siblings' plight. He has started babysitting for us now & then and has done a tremendous job. He is still the athlete of the family playing sports year round. He started flag football this year & dominated on defense. No flag was safe with the Jbird out on the field.



Then there is my little entrepreneur, GtyCent. He continued to work his butt off to provide for my expensive taste in jeans. Just kidding, you gize. Wait, is Gap considered expensive? I mean, look at him.... he's so important that he HAD to take a phone call in the middle of our photo shoot. If that doesn't tell you something then I don't know what will. Anyway, he is still flying back & forth to Utah every other week and it has, surprisingly, not killed us yet. We each have our "Gty is out of town" routines and "Gty is home" routines. Both have their pluses so we're fine with it (i.e. one plus is that when Gty is out of town we just have cereal for dinner--- score!). He is also kickin' his own butt & has lost 40 lbs. He's like the Incredibly Shrinking Man or something.

Then there is me. Gty took this pic. I look so glamorous with the wind blowing my hair like that don't I? I'm not up to anything particularly fancy or note-worthy. I did take a fun trip to Forks, WA in October. If you want to read about it click here. It was some serious good times. And don't ask who those people are I went with. You don't know them. But yeah, still loving Colorado. Still loving our ward here (it's true, ward people!). My new mission is to teach everyone the running man & blog my little heart out. I'm just srsly so blessed, you gize. ::winkwink::

I'll be back on Sunday, December 21st slightly tanner. I'll be thinking of you & you & maybe you while I sit on a beach of perfect white sand reading gossip magazines or by the pool of the ship sipping my virgin pina colada or snorkling in the perfectly clear waters of the Caribbean.

Miss me!

::sigh:: It won't be the same without you.

I think it would only be right if we all stopped blogging while you were gone. It will be hard, but I will be the first to agree to it. (I'm not going to stop reading, I just won't make any posts until you get back)

Katie said...

I am just happy you have an iphone. I will accept slightly less activity from you in Blogland, but none is unacceptable.


Those pictures are so cute BTW. For some reason I thought Beebee was a baby. You should post recent pictures, seriously. That baby in the bath pic, and the poop in the excersaucer. Fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice...don't fool me again.

Merry Christmas!

Carol said...

LOVED this post BTW and the pictures were divine :) Congrats to Gty for losing 40 lbs. and to you for your good momsmanship while he's away. It appears you two are a great team--and we expected nothing less since the day you met. It is not acceptable that you won't be up to your usual blogging pattern but we'll survive if you send just a few pix from your ipone now and then. And remember, Tiffers, you burn like toast left too long to cook--i.e. 1998 reunion if I'm not mistaken. Puffy feet, blistering legs. you remember?

Landee said...

Katie, that sounded a little threatening.
HotPants, don't you dare!!! I wanna come home and have hours of catching up to do. Srsly.

Memzy, :: sigh :: try to carry on/muscle through.

The iPhone no workie in international waters.... I'm hoping the boat has some Internet thingy though. I mean, the Residence Inn did, fhs.

Jenny ESP said...

I savored every word of this post, and then tore one construction paper link off my countdown chain. I already feel like non-blogging, but I gotta muscle through it.

And people who don't know who the people are on that Fork's trip, I'm the hawt one.

eekareek said...

That picture of you was seriously hot! Your kids are precious, your family is cute, I love Edward, enjoy the Carribean, you will be missed, I am jealous, how's the Iphone?, can't wait for the 21st. It will kind of be like an early Christmas. Like a four day early Christmas or something.

Memzy said...

HAWT pic of you. I forgot to say so earlier but really i didn't want to cuz of my jealousy.

danandcami said...

Love the virtual card! Enjoy your time away!

Carol said...

Tiffers,
Again, do not burn yourself in to a painful state of regret. OK?

Sam, Shel & Co said...

Good looking family. And congrats to Gty on his weight loss. Sam and I just did the same thing, so we know how much work it is! We, however, have another approximately 1000 to go...

Have fun on your trip and DONT FRY! Been there, done that (sounds like you have, too).

quesetescapa said...

I think the picture of you is breathtaking. Then again you are beautiful IRL, not just virtually.

I will miss you but look forward to your return.

Cristin said...

sweet pictures!! Your fans will all have to ban together and muscle through your vacation...sniff sniff

marcikay said...

Hey! Thanks to some of your peer pressure (more like jealousy) I started my blog, and have been dying to get access to yours ever since! Yay! I'm finally here! Wanted to say, had so so much fun in October, you pretty much kill me.. let me know when you're home and I'll give you our home address.. (your hubby asked for it)

Markie23 said...

Loved the virtual card, and the real card... THANKS! We'll be in the Caribbean over Christmas too. Or at least pretending we are while we are on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. Did I mention I LOVE Disneyland you gize?

Annie said...

I'm glad I can now say I got a Christmas Card from you...virtual & all. I hope you have a great time on your trip. BTW your kids are ADORABLE!

Kelli said...

Haven't gotten the card yet, but have a fun trip! The pictures are adorable and congrats to Gty on the 40 lbs!

Merry Christmas!

Anonymous said...

I thought you had 5 kids?

Tell Skinny to get a J O B cuz you need more of those cute lil munchkins.

You know I cannot comment on each of them or collectively w/o crying like a baby.

But yeah... thanks for the e-love. Did you get my card? It's totally thoughtful and homemade so I hope the mailperson (pc) didn't lose/burn/steal it... again.

yw.

Memzy said...

^^you talk like she is AROUND or something. ::sigh::

Anonymous said...

Oh she's "around" Memzerz. Sippin her Chichi and texting me like a deranged poodle. (not that there is any other kind of poodle)

BTW (that means by the way btw) Chichi is the teknickle term for a virgin pina colada. Just an FYI (that means for your information) for all yalls that don't speak acronymoneze.

So Landee, who is your favorite Goonie? OH srsly???? MINE TOO!!!!

This site BLOWS.

Jenny ESP said...

I'm gonna leave your blog up all day, and refresh every few minutes.

Katie said...

^^me too.

I am sure the plane ride is just to bumpy to give us a little glimpse. I can wait...refresh.

Carol said...

Just checking. . . .nope, nothing new yet. ::sigh:: (I copied that from Memzy but I don't know what :: means)
