Its been a long and boring couple of days.  Actually, it feels like its been a couple of weeks.  My family left both of us here in Charlotte with Jon who hasn't paid us much attention.  He has been doign all sorts of things that make tons of noise.  He keeps putting us outside and leave us there for
 hours on end.  What gives?  

Anyways, we are sad and want Beck and Cole to come home immediately.  We need some love and attention.  

So, i thought i would let you see what Jon has been doing so you understand a little bit why we couldn't be inside.

This is what it looked like in the beginning.

Then he started to really tear it apart.  Pulled all the white stuff off, making a HUGE mess all over the carpet and throwing it on the driveway.

Next thing we new, the wall was GONE!  We don't know what he did, or why he was doing it, but, it was pretty crazy.  We were really worried because it didn't look too safe for my boys.  We were  actually pretty upset now that i think about it.

Then it started to make a little sense, kind of.  This wierd guy came over and helped Jon put something in place.  It still really concerned me, because it didn't look like it was going to stop my boys from falling down off the 2nd floor.

And finally, he finished putting up something that looks like the gate that keeps us from going upstairs.  Now i feel much better about the boys now.  There is NO way they will fall down now. 

Pretty Cool huh?  Now its Emma's turn to paint and stain the thing.  HA!

Our little ONE YEAR OLD

Can you believe it? Beckett is ONE YEAR OLD! We had a party for him on Saturday. His 2 favorite things at the party were having the slide tower inside and his CUPCAKE. He's never climbed on the slide before and he absolutely loved it. After being shown a few times how to climb up, he can climb up and even slide down on his own now. (We'll post a video later maybe to show the pro in action!)
We watched the festivities from the backyard -like always- but got a great view of all the babies sitting in a row eating food. There were 5 babies around Beckett's age and it was fun to watch them together. The balloons were a big hit. As you can see in the picture on the left, we doggies got into playing with the balloons as well. That is, until Jenga popped one. That sort of freaked us out.

Things are getting back to normal here. Ima & Papa Al went home to Texas yesterday. We had a great visit with them....despite sick boys. Beckett was sick all last week and Cole is now sick. Emma and the boys stayed in PJs most of today. Beckett has been cuddling with us so much lately. He just crawls up and lays on us. It's very sweet. We love our little ONE YEAR OLD!

Moo-Moo and Cock-a-doodle-doo!!!!

We didn't get to go out with the boys last night, but saw them in their cute outfits today when they got dressed up for Oma & Papa. Boy were they adorable! Last night the family went over to Cole's friend Maddie's house for trick-or-treating and homemade pizzas afterwards. It sounds like they had a blast!
