I'm way over due for one of those ultra posts where I put a million pics of a million different things all in one. I always do it. I know you know what I'm talking about. That's just what I do when I get super behind on my blogging. I just don't want to leave anything out!
So here it is:
As many of you know my precious friend Tara moved from Lubbock back home to Houston. We got to spend some good quality time with her before she left. One night we went over to Tim & Beth's for some homemade pizza (why's it still doing this? How annoying! I can't get it to stop!!) Ahhhh!!!!!!!!
Ok, that's better. Anyways. That was ridiculous. Um, where was I? Oh yeah! We had dinner with the Dallas family. Here are some pictures of our adventurous evening.
Waiting outside for 10 mintues b/c Zach & Calyn couldn't get the door open. We could hear them on the inside laughing and trying to open the door. We seriously settled in & got cozy on the front porch. We began to wonder if Beth was even home! Don't worry, she was. Apparently Beth was in the shower.
After dinner we were all serenaded by Zach & Calyn...huhum...I mean, Jon & Laney. It's true. Guest appearance at the Dallas house.
It took them a while to get started, but once they did, they were good!
Look at the way she holds that mic! She is working it people.
And Jon....he gets down. Don't let his shy personality fool you.
He's a maniac on the guitar.
This is baby Abby Dallas. She is trying out to be the Pearl Merchant dancer/event coordinator. They're negotiating with Bobby D. as to wether or not she'd be allowed to actually dance on stage during 9:30 worship.
We're keeping our fingers crossed Abby! You go girl!
Later that week Abby came over to play with Anners while Zach & Calyn played their 2nd t-ball game of the day. She quickly realized that Annerson had an activity table that looked all too familiar to one she used to have. Hmmm....Don't worry Abby. If you keep reading this post you will realize that Annerson now has her own table thanks to Gandy and can promptly return yours so you can not play with it. :)
We decided to weather the cold weather and go to game #3.
Bundled up in May for a t-ball game.
"Can we take the activity table? Please."
All-stars of the game!
THE Zach & Calyn Dallas
Ok, this part was funny. Tim is announcing the team, munchkins, line-up, whatever you call it, and Abby runs out to the middle of the field and stops. She's so cute. She's practically the mascot.
Ok, this part was even funnier. DURING THE GAME (see the girl in the bottom right corner about to swing, uh huh) Abby runs out onto the field. Beth jumps up and grabs her & just keeps walking. It was awesome.
Maybe in a few years kid.
Happy & calm.
Not so happy & calm.
Annerson's reaction when I reminded her that Tara was leaving us soon.
By now you may be saying to yourself, "Are they like obsessed with the Dallas fam or something?"
In response to that I say, "Tara & I are co-founders of the I HEART DALLAS FAMILY CLUB" It's a non-prof organization for Dallas lovers like ourselves. So yes, we might just be obsessed with this family. If you knew them, you would be too!
Gandy Joel (that's his grandfather name until "Annerson decides for herself what she wants to call me") came to visit before Memorial Day. We spent the majority of the time playing with the collection of new toys he bought for her.
Annerson is Joel's first grandbaby so I have really enjoyed watching him get more and more comfortable with her as she gets older. I could tell that this trip he was very relaxed & confident. He fed her. Played with her. Held her a bunch. Still no offers to change a diaper though. Maybe next time.
Exploring the new Baby Grand Piano.
SIDE NOTE: Joel researched this toy before purchasing it. It's true. When he got to Lubbock he pulled it up online to show me. He did his homework. The best part was when he found out that the Toys R Us had one in stock for us to go buy. Good grandpa, huh?
Going the wrong way
new activity table
Dinner at Steve & Kathi's
What's better than playing with our pet cat
Olllie who can't stand me & always runs away?
A BLIND cat!
She can't see my sticky little fingers coming for the whiskers!!!
We went to volunteer at an assisted living home
& met this crazy man named Steve. He lost his marbles.
Annerson though he was funny.
Gandy trying to teach Anners about stocks. She wasn't too into it.
Tara left Lubbock.
That's all I'm going to blog about that right now.
Tune in next time w/ I feel a little bit more emotionally stable & can deal with that post.
