It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Decorating for Christmas is usually a slow process at the Moore house. Too many interruptions to think we might get it done in one day. But the tree is up and the rest will come slowly but surely.
Ummm...Rylee there's no presents under the tree yet.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I know it's a little late, but Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends. :) We had lots of food, some football and Kiersten managed to stay healthy this year. She's usually the one who's sick on Turkey Day.
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but we have a tradition that takes place right after we've gorged ourselves on a Thanksgiving feast. Everyone gets a little present with their name and a poem about them. Next year it will be our family's turn to make up the poems...better start rhyming now. :P
Anyway, Raegan got a bracelet for her little gift, and then we headed over to the park for football. I told her to put her bracelet in the diaper bag for safe keeping. She decided she knew best and wore it while she played at the park. At some point, she thought it would be fun to have buried treasure. So she picked an inconspicuous place, and buried her new bracelet in the sand. Several minutes later, after not being able to find it, she came to ask for help. Kiersten and I spent the next hour checking all the conspicuous places, and then raking the inconspicous places with golf clubs because Grandpa's shed was locked and we couldn't get his rake. We must have looked pretty comical. But we did find it, thanks to Aunt Kimmy's keen eye.

They're famous!!

inmaricopa.com did a youtube video about our Veteran's Day assembly. If you go to their website, there will be a story about Veteran's Day and a video to watch. Or you can just go to youtube and search Veteran's Day 2010 in Maricopa AZ. The girls haven't seen it yet, but they will be so excited they made it to youtube!
I also posted a link on my Facebook page. Thank you again,Veteran's!

Thank you Veteran's!!

We celebrated Veteran's Day with a pancake breakfast and ceremony at the girls' school.
We got to fill out stars for all of our family members who had served in the Armed Forces. We have quite a few in the Moore/Morris line. :)Aubree and Kiersten got to play some patriotic songs in the full orchestra, as a quintet, and then Aubree got to play a Yankee Doodle medley in a duet with another violin. I was so impressed and proud. I didn't even know they would be so involved in the program.

Raegan's class got to participate in this sign. She says hers is the red hand. :) The ceremony ended with a fly over of 2 F-16 jets. I don't care what country you live in...THAT IS COOL!!!!
