Dandy and Ashley came down for family pictures the 1st of November, but I haven't been able to post them til now because we were giving them as a surprise for Dad and Mom and Gpa and Gma for Christmas. We spent a couple days at the beach with Dad, Mom, Dandy, Ashley, and Blue and Red (their dogs), this past weekend and celebrated early Christmas (because I couldn't wait anymore to give Mom the picture!) and Ashley's 21st birthday (which was actually yesterday).
We took a Nintendo Wi to the beach and all enjoyed "bowling," "tennis," "golf," and "boxing." It was a lot of fun, though I'm sure we looked ridiculous! While Dandy and Dave mastered the art of staying in one place and flicking their wrists, Ashley and I were jumping all over the room, as if playing the sports in real life! We also enjoyed walking on the beach--again, God blessed us with beautiful weather. We are especially grateful for that, as we hear reports that it might snow this weekend! Mom and Ashley brought a little tree, so we could maintain the Christmas spirit, and we went to Moe's for lunch before we left. Though Mom was sick the whole weekend, she was a great sport, and we all had a good time!
