Indoor Golfing with Friends

A couple of months ago back toward the end of the summer, Brett and Janeal invited us to go indoor golfing with them, I had never been and was curious as to how it worked and I have to say it was pretty cool, we got to golf Pebble Beach, how lucky were we??
Me, I sure sucked it up, but I am learning:)

and Brett!

We had a lot of fun, but we always have fun with Brett and Janeal. They are awesome friends!

Visit from the Tooth fairy!

In August Tannon lost her first tooth, she was so fun, David told me her two front bottom teeth were loose and of course she didn't know what was going on so we explained to her that her teeth are going to fall out and she is going to get her big girl teeth, and then we told her all about the tooth fairy, after that I never have seen her go through so much emotion she was scared, nervous, sad but then excited and could wait. Well the very next day she lost one of her teeth and she was so excited for the tooth fairy to visit and to put her tooth under her pillow and she was so happy she woke up and her tooth was gone and she had money, then that morning at breakfast she lost the other tooth that was loose. What a lucky girl she was to have the tooth fairy visit two nights in a row! The next day she had to go to school but was kinda nervous cause she said the kids would make fun of her but after a lot of tears and explaining that all kids loose their teeth and maybe a little bribery she went to school and had a good day!
This is when she lost the first one. I took a picture with my phone when she lost the other one but I don't know how to get pictures off my phone.

You can tell how far behind I am on my blog because here she has two missing teeth and now her big girl teeth are already all grown in!

First day of Preschool

Tannon started Preschool the middle of August, she could not wait to start school! She loves school and getting to see her friends ever day, she was kinda bumped that most of her friends from last years preschool weren't going to be there cause they started kindergarten but I told her there would plenty of other new friends she could make. It was fun a couple of days before school started my mom came out and took her to the mall to buy some new outfits for school and to lunch which got her really excited to start school cause she had some fun clothes to wear that she picked out!

This is a picture of her right before I took her to school the first day in the outfit she picked out and could not wait to wear the first day of school! She has been such a big helper this summer, I am so lucky to have such a good girl. I miss her everyday when she is at school. Its funny everyday I pick her up she asks me "Did you miss me again, mom?" and of course the answer is always yes. Sometimes I tell her I cried the whole time she was gone and its so cute she gets this big girl look and starts to lecture me on how she is a big girl now and she has to go school to learn and I can't cry, it to funny! I love her so much!

4th of July weekend

Every year we head up to the cabin with the whole Anderson family for Heber's 4th of July weekend. They have fireworks, a parade and then a carnival, expect this year because of the fire they didn't do fireworks which was a bumper cause they do awesome fireworks in Heber.
This was at the Parade!
Carnival fun!

They had pony rides this year, which Tannon loved! That's all she wanted to do, so we saved it for last so she would do the other stuff too!
Barrett was loving the pony ride too!

All the Anderson grand kids in their 4th of July shirt!

We always have so much fun at the cabin, we get to relax and spend time with the family!

Daniel leaving on his mission/Utah trip

My brother Daniel left on his mission in June, before heading to the airport he came by to say goodbye to the kids! Tannon and Barrett love Uncle Daniel and they always talk about him being on his mission to everyone. It was sad to see him say goodbye to the kids!
Daniel and I really close so it was sad to see him leave but I know he will be an awesome missionary!

So my parent flew him to Utah a week before he had to enter the MTC and stayed with my cousin so that they could have a family vacation before he left, it was fun my brother Christopher who is lives in Idaho for school drove down for a couple of day and then it worked out perfect to were I could go which was so awesome. I drove up with Davids aunt who was in town visiting and then David surprised me with a ticket home. David actually setup the whole thing, it was so nice. I have such a awesome husband. It was so nice spending time with my brothers. I had so much fun. I had never been to Utah before and it was so pretty there.
So as soon as I got to Utah we all went bowling and then out for frozen yogurt. It was girls against boys and who ever lost had to treat for yogurt and of course the girls won:)
Yes my brother Christopher looks like a weirdo standing like that!

So the next day my parent gave us kids money and told us to go out and have bonding time as siblings and of course I took no pictures, sad! But we went to the mall and looked around and tried to figure out what we wanted to do and we decided we would go out to lunch and go to the movies and see the new X Men movie that was out! I had a lot of fun with my brothers, I am so lucky to have such awesome brother, I love them so much!

The next day we did some shopping and then we all went rock climbing, I had never been rocking climbing and I have to say I had a blast.

Then the day before Daniel had to go to the MTC my parents, Daniel and I went to the Salt Lake Temple walked around and did a session and the went for a light lunch and ice cream.

The last day was a sad/happy day dropping my brother off at the MTC. I am so proud of him for going on a mission, he is going to do such a great job because he is such a hard worker and so kind and caring about others.

I had a fun time in Utah. I am sad I didn't take that many pictures cause we did so much and had a blast! Thanks Alisha for letting us stay with you!

Summer swim lessons

The kids did swim lesson this summer, I had them both do 2 sessions just to be safe! Tannon was super good and she probably could have just done 1 session but I thought it be something she could do during the summer to keep her from getting to bored and it doesn't hurt to get extra practice. Barrett was pretty tough the first session he just cried every turn he had but the second session was much better.
Tannon really surprised me because last summer she hated swim lessons but this summer she was loving the water she was like a little fish.

You can tell by Barretts face that he is not happy. Barrett hates the water and when we would go swimming at our friends before lessons he won't even go near the water. During his lessons he would refused to kick his feet or do anything for the first couple of days but everyday got better and better and he actually has become quite the dare devil with water when we go swimming at our friends house, he will just jump in if your not watching, I think I prefer him to hate the water cause now I have to watch him like a hawk:)

Cabin Trip with Friends

So as soon as David got out of school for the summer we planned a cabin trip with Brett and Janeal to make up for the last cabin trip we tried to have. I have to say this one went a lot better, we had tonz of fun!
One of the days we were up there we went bowling in Show low, which was a lot of fun, of course I stink at bowling but we had lots of laughs.
When you tell Barrett to smile and he doesn't really feel like it, this is normally what the smile looks like, he is so funny!
Brett and Janeal
David getting ready to help Tannon on her turn.
We also brought the wii up, which was fun. It took forever to get the boys to do Just Dance but when they finally did it, they rocked it!

Going Shooting is always a most when we go to the cabin. Before we went shooting we went to the dollar store and got some cheap and fun things to shoot at for targets.

We also went to a near by lake and had a picnic and walked down the lake, we saw some kids skipping rocks and thought we would give it a try, so we tried to see who could get it to skip the farthest and I wasn't so good at that, mine just sunk.

And last put not least we bought this puzzle the first time we went to the cabin with Brett and Janeal but we of course didnt get to finish it so we were able to finish it this cabin trip so we had to get a picture with it. I hadn't done a puzzle in years and it was a lot of fun and very addicting.

It was a really fun and relaxing cabin trip and we are so lucky to have friends like Brett and Janeal they are always so fun to hangout with.

My Birthday was awesome as always. My brother Daniel made me an ice cream pie and it was to die for, Mint and Oreo my favorite! My Family sure did spoil me and I got a lot of fun things! I am so thankful to have family and friends in my life, they are truly the greatest gift.

Easter 2011

Easter morning the kids finding their Easter baskets. You can tell they were both still tired, we have early church so we had to wake up a bit early.

The kids in their Sunday Easter outfits. They are so cute!
My parents did a Easter hunt for the kids. So here are the kids taking off!
Barrett looks so excited!
Looking for eggs! Barrett was just picking up any egg but Tannon was looking for the money eggs, what a smart girl.
Tannon asked me to take this picture, she said "Mom take a picture of me posing to pick up this egg?" She is too funny!

Barrett got bored after a bit and just sat in the sand box and started opening his eggs to eat the candy. We had our friends Brett and Janeal join us for Easter at my parents too, we had a lot of fun. We had yummy food and played volleyball, egg toss, balloon toss and other outside games. I love spending time with family and friends.
