Texas Top TEN:

1). Spending fun time with family
2). Whist Olympics
3). Cole's Boatrides
4). Bonding time during TWO rounds of golf with the guys
5). Cole's sweet prayers...."Dear Jesus, I dub (love) you, AMEN."
6). Fun in the pool
7). GRAPES....need i say "more"?
8). Watching Beckett crawl through the caterpillar and cars tent!
9). Jess & Emma's tubing tumbling
10). Beckett & Banter---just two babies having fun!

I sure had a lot of fun at the farm while the rest of my family ditched me and flew to Texas. But OH!, I'm so glad that we are all home now! I missed Beckett's fingers pulling my hair. I missed Colton chasing me with push toys. I am catching up on my sleep and leftover crumbs beneath the table. Here's a few more pics from this past week:

Ima & Papa

G.G. & Grandpa Anderson

Jess & Emma try cheese flavored larvets-yum!

Fun in the driveway! They both LOVED this time.

Wish I were in Texas...

Well it sounds like my family is having a great time in Texas. I hear that Beckett is LOVING on Auntie Jessica's dogs, especially her puppy Banter. He's a 5 month old husky and is absolutely adorable. I'm a little jealous that I'm not there. Banter and Taupper sound like fun doggies. The family has been hanging out and the boys have had fun playing with all of Grandma's toys. Beckett's favorite is the crawl through caterpillar. Cole's favorite toy is the tricycle.
The weather has been a litte rainy in Texas, so they went bowling today. Cole got his own lane with bumpers and had a blast. Afterwards they went to Chick-fil-a and had a bite to eat and the boys played in the playground. The boys had a great time but were very tired by the time they got home. I'm glad that my family is having fun, but I'm very anxious to see them soon!

i miss my family...

Well my family is home from the beach now, and is getting ready to leave this weekend for Texas to visit family. I don't get to go on all these fun trips with them, but don't really mind since I'm at my favorite place in the world. I'm having a blast running around and barking at cows and the donkey at the farm.

I've been getting some updates on my family from Oma. The kids had a great time at the beach. They especially loved playing in the sand with buckets and shovels. They stayed in a condo with friends from across the street. Cole and Beckett played and had so much fun with Cameron & Katy! (If you read in the comments on the last blog, you will also see that the girls dominated in spades...even if the game wasn't quite over yet.) Jon took Beck out into the ocean and he loved it! Apparently it was very calming and he just layed his head on Jon's chest. Emma said it was very cute. They walked down the pier Saturday night and Colton got to see lots of Jellyfish.

I bet that my family really misses me. Going on walks probably aren't the same. And they probably realize how messy the boys actually are at the table. "Normally there isn't food on the floor!!!" is what they might be saying. While I'm gone though, they can leave the door open for longer than 5 seconds without wondering if I'll run out. And they don't have to pick up certain toys or other items in wondering if I'll eat it. I miss them too. I miss Beckett crawling all over me. I miss Colton chasing me around. I hope to see them soon.
