A yippee little dog tried to attack me today. It was sort of annoying. I thought I'd blog about it and then realized I haven't written in almost 2 weeks. Apparently I've been BUSY. We've all been busy I guess.

Cole has been busy working on potty training. He's totally in cute boy underwear all day except for at night. He's doing so good and loves his underwear.

Beckett has been busy trying to walk. He's been taking a few steps at a time for the last few weeks. This week he's taken more steps and thinks it's a lot of fun.

Emma's been busy cutting paper. Oma & soon to be Aunt Sarah came this weekend and they put wedding invitations together.

Jon's been busy writing comments on Lacey's blog.

I'll try to make sure we stay less busy this week and write more blogs.

a letter to my doggy friends...

Dear Boscoe & Kip,
We had a great time with your family on Wednesday! Everyone went to the park for a picnic lunch and then played on the playground for quite a while. Our Neighbor Jodi with her twins Lelia & Jaydon came as well and all four babies were on their best behavior and loved the swings! (Lelia even fell asleep in hers!) After they came home, I got a little playtime with all the kids in the backyard. Bergen is still a little afraid of me, but did very well. It was fun to see everyone- Cole and Beck had a blast with all the kids.

Beckett's favorite Keigley moment: Cuddling with Riley after his nap. Cole's favorite Keigley moment: He says it's watching London on his tractor. Okay. But I think I also heard him talking about how fun it was on the playground... going down the slides and climbing through tunnels. Emma's not so favorite Keigley moment: Forgetting her wallet and making Lacey pay for groceries. Erg. Jon's favorite Keigley moment: Finding out what fennel seed burgers taste like! Hehe. I'm sorry that you both weren't able to make the trip, but I just wanted to let you know that we had fun with your family. Emma is talking about bringing the boys down to see you soon. If I'm not able to make the trip, will you please write me a letter and let me know what happens? Thanks!

I think I'll just lay here...

Jon- Do you see why I might want to stick Cole in that box? Actually, this has Beckett written all over it...

Diapers on the floor...

Look at my sweet kid! He is getting into everything (as you can tell below) His favorite new hobbies consist of taking all the books off the shelf and the diapers out of the diaper basket. Good thing doggies don't have to pick up diapers and put them away. Wait a minute- is that my collar he's holding onto?! C'mon BECK! Oh, and another thing that little Beckett loves these days is crawling up the stairs. Last weekend Beckett stood for 10 seconds and took 2 steps. He hasn't tried much since then, but loves walking around our coffee table and pulling up onto everything he can.
Speaking of diapers though, Colton has had a good potty weekend. He's gone pee pee quite a bit and has enjoyed all the naked time. At the moment, he is pooping in his diaper in the bathroom though, so we've still got a while!
We started our music class this morning and the boys had a great time. Their favorite part of class is instrument time. Even Beckett was banging on the drum and was having a great time.

Send Doggy Treats Please....

crazy zoo animals...

We love 3 day weekends! It's so nice to have Jon home one extra day. To celebrate, they left me at home and headed down to the Columbia Zoo for the day. (Nice, huh? I guess I wouldn't have mixed well with all those animals!) They had a really good time and saw plenty of neat creatures. The favorite? Most likely the giraffe! What a neat looking animal and everyone got to feed it- even Cole who is normally cautious towards new things. Cole also liked the aquarium. Both boys were great and had a fun time!

You can call me "Paw"!

Football season has begun and Jon and Emma got to go to the Virginia Tech game here in Charlotte this weekend. They had a great time and got to hang out with some good friends from college. Our friends Chad and Laura watched the boys while Jon and Emma were gone and they all had a good time playing together. Abby, Brent, Sarah & Colin came to our house after the game for a cookout, playtime with the kids and some fun games in the evening. My favorite part of their visit was all the attention. Colin named me "PAW" because he liked shaking my paw. He was such a cute kid--wish I could see him more often! Colton loved playing with Sarah. He kept asking her to come out and play with him and pick him up. We are trying to convince this Sarah now to move to Charlotte---seems our cousin Sarah is becoming quite content in New Hampshire!
