Lots of random things...

First... Laurie Johnson has outdone herself in the "let's exploit our friends" category of the Blog world. Tip of the hat to you, my dear.

Second... my nephew is now 1 year and 2 weeks old. I feel bad for not posting his birthday pictures earlier, so here are a few:

His first taste of sugar... and oh, how he enjoyed it!


With his mom...


With his dad...


Landon held up very well under the stress of his first birthday party.

Third... Underdogs.. also known as "Cinderella Teams" and "Mid Majors." Within the NCAA basketball tournament, there are always a handful of teams that are seeded between 4 and 13 (my estimated range) that surprise the nation. This year's winner is George Mason University. This team is an 11 seed in this year's tournament, and they have made their way to the Final Four (knocking off the likes of Michigan St, UNC, and UCONN - none of whom are teams to be disregarded by any means). As a Louisiana boy, I would love to see LSU win the championship, but seeing GMU win would definitely make for a better story... Of course, to people who care about such things, this post is not news; and to those for whom it is news... well, they probably just don't care (but they should).

Fourth... I am finally starting to add links to other blogs. If you are not there yet, don't fret... you will be soon. (yes, I just said don't fret... )

When you're uber cool, you're uber cool. It's hard to handle all the fame sometimes.

And OH MY GOODNESS Landon is just the cutest baby ever! Look at his cheeks! Look at his eyes! Look at his adorable, little ducky, pouty, kissable lips!

There goes Laurie talking about kissing again.

If there's one thing I am happy to be known for...it's kissing. Spread the word!

Todd,
Thank you for posting Landon's Birthday pics. (Please post the close-up of you and him.)
For all of you that know Todd, I am sure you would agree that he is the kindest, funniest guy- not to mention a great uncle!

Todd - your nephew is a cutie! Maybe in a few years, he and one of my nieces will meet and fall in love! Ha ha!

. . . on another note - I had never heard of George Mason University (GMU meant Gospel Missionary Union to me - the organization that had Marvin in Panama) until just the other day when I was looking for information on visiting my friend in D.C.! It's just funny how stuff like that will pop up in front of you everywhere you look sometimes!
