We are awaiting the arrival of our second child (we find out the sex on the 27th!!) and we are watching Landen grow up so fast!  He is a handful! (He has one speed...ON) But he is always entertaining to be around.  He loves trains, trucks, and tractors, harassing (and then hugging) our dogs, playing at the park (or doing anything outside), and just being a little boy! He will be 21 months old Thursday!  

The state fair is in town and we loaded up and took Landen Saturday morning!  We had a lot of fun!  I think it may have been a little overwhelming for LT, but there were lots of cool things to see and we all have a great time! Landen got to see a helicopter and actually get inside.  We saw tractors and animals and even rode a few rides, which Landen may not have been thrilled about.  We ate some fair food and came home for Landen to crash for a good nap.

I felt like I haven't posted any finished exterior house pictures, so here are a few...

New Chicken Coop!

Now that school has started back, we are feeling pretty busy and I haven't posted anything in a while.  In the meantime, Matt has built our chicken coop and we've finally moved the chickens and Regina (she doesn't think she's a chicken) up from John and Barbara's.

We even got a little help from Johnny and Ondina one Saturday! (Johnny's in the coop)

Almost finished!

The chickens have arrived!

Landen likes hanging out with them too.
