California

After we had Christmas day with my family, we left that night to California to visit John's family for a week. While we were there, some of our very best friends were leaving from the SFO airport which is only like 5 minutes away from John's house. We had to see them since they now live in Wisconsin and we have NO idea when we would ever visit Wisconsin! (sorry guys) Their 2 boys are the twins that I've pretty much told everyone about. For all of you who haven't heard the story, here it is. Alyssa, our friend, was due 11 weeks behind me with a baby boy. Well, I was due with a baby girl, as you all remember, until a week beforehand. So, I end up having a boy which was a surprise and which doesn't happen all that often. Well, 8 weeks after I have Landon, John and I get a phone call. It's Alyssa saying she's in the hospital and she's had her baby. I'm thinking, Wow, 3 weeks early! Lucky! Well, all throughout her pregnancy, she'd been either the same size or even bigger than me. Now we know why. She tells me she delivered twins boys. I think she's lying and say, "shutup, nuh uh." I figure she's just trying to one up me on delivery stories. Alas, she wasn't lying. After they delivered the first baby and thought they were done, about 4 minutes later the doctor says, "there's another one in there!" Crazy, huh? A couple minutes later, they had 2 baby boys. So, if you didn't know the story, now you do. They've done such a great job with being surprised and all.

Here's a picture with Landon's cousin Kate. They're 3 months apart. Can you guess which one is older? They're about the same size. Of course, Landon is the younger but bigger one. :)

I thought John was tall, but man, that other guy is huge! Maybe it's the camera angle, but she looks almost as tall as John too.

It's the camera angle but he is a little taller than John. Alyssa is just about as tall as I am.
