This was the on ramp we used to get to church every Sunday.

If anyone were to ask me where I am from I would tell them California, though I did live in Washington until I was ten. I have roots in both places and my mom, grandma, and cousin still live in the area. On the news last week were the stories of all the floods....right smack in the middle of where I used to live. Some stretches of the freeway were even under as much as TEN feet of water!!! Luckily my family escaped the damage, but my heart breaks for those devastated by the water especially during this holiday season. Pictures from Jeremy King Family.

A few months ago Bryan and I sat down and talked about the importance of noticing all the blessings in our lives. We decided to, over the next few months, pay attention to every little thing we are grateful for. We each kept a list and just recently shared them with each other. Here are a few things that we jotted down. Some are pretty funny and some really touch my heart because we have been given so much more than we deserve!

Working on a Farm, Chocolate Milk, Vegetable Gardens, Diapers with Pee Only, Noah's Vroom Sounds, Sunglasses, New Shoes, Ancestors, Jimmy Johnson Winning Nextel Cup, Fresh Cut Hay, Naps, Holding Noah and Audrey for the First Time, A Job, Teasing My Sisters, Working Christmas Lights

Noah and Audrey had a great time on Halloween. Audrey went dressed as a ladybug and Noah was the meanest, scariest pirate you've ever seen!!! Noah had a good time carrying his bag around, but didn't quite understand that you need to hold it out to get the candy. He loves eating the "duckers" (suckers).

The other day I had music videos on the t.v. and Noah was just playing away with his toys. I then noticed he completely stopped playing and was staring at the screen. Taylor Swift was on and he couldn't keep his eyes off her. He watched the entire video and when it was over he went back to playing with his toys! My little boy has his first crush!!!
Today Noah and Daddy were playing with the phones pretending to talk to each other when Noah decided to throw a fit....something he wanted and didn't get his way I'm sure. Well, Dad said that was enough, took the phone away and put it in his pocket. During that time the phone was turned on and called the operator. All the operator heard in the background was a kid screaming, so she dispatched a police officer! When Dad finally pulled the phone out of his pocket and noticed it was on he heard someone talking on the phone to which he said "hello." Anyway, the operator explained what she did right about the time the police officer knocked on our door. The officer was very understanding, but we have decided there will be no more playing with the real phones!!!

On Sunday we attended Isabella's baby blessing. After the blessing we went back to Heather and Shane's for lunch and to visit with all the family. When it was time to eat lunch Noah was so hungry that he was inhaling his food just as quickly as Bryan was putting it on his plate. In the midst of wolfing down his hot dog Noah started to choke. Bryan quickly pounded on his chest and was just about to throw him upside down when the hot dog came out...but that's not all. Later on that day Noah was playing around and put his finger on some live wire from a light socket that didn't have the plate on. Heather and Shane have been working on a few things in their house and had removed the plate. He got a nice little zap that scared the heck out of him (and mom and dad!!!) To top the whole night off....we used up all his diapers by the end of the night and he had to be changed before we went home, well all Aunt Heather had was a girl pull up. Poor guy!

We would like to welcome our new addition....Audrey Jo Moore. She was born on October 11th at 7:52 am. She weighed 7lbs 10 oz (only 2 more than her brother) and measured 18.5 inches. Life is pretty fun with a new little one around. Noah loves giving her kisses and calls her "my baby" Sometimes he will be in the middle of playing and have to stop to run over and give her a kiss. So far she has the same temperment as her big brother did....very mellow. We like that!!!!

Bryan, Noah and I are just waiting for the arrival of our little girl. She is due next week, but we are scheduled to go in on Thursday, so just a few more days! I think Noah will do pretty good with a new baby. He has a new little cousin, Isabella (3 weeks), and just loves giving her kisses.
