say What?

Shane got a couple of new lego sets for Christmas, so we put them together today. Then it got us in the Lego mood so we got out Matthew's box of Legos to see if we had all the pieces to build some other stuff. Matthew and I stayed up late trying to find pieces to put together some of his old sets.

Legos what fun

Feeding the birds
Today we enjoyed the breezy nice bug free weather and fed the birds. We went to feed the ducks and geese but the seagulls (Ted calls them "Beach Chickens") were too fast and got most of our bread. You know they are the same birds that yell out MINE MINE and Mine from the movie Finding Nemo.

Birds love bread

Birds think bread is tasty

Hamsters are cool
NO..... We ddn't get a hamster. That is the kids new friend. Our friends brought Hunter the Hamster over to visit today and we fell in love with him. Even Ted thought he was pretty cool. He has a unique hairdo and he is COOL! Sawyer got to sniff him and Smokey watched him groom himself. Everyone got their chance to visit with Hunter. I hope he comes to visit again, even though Shane, and Colby put him in a Playmobil Police Van. Don't worry he escaped through the window and I think Matthew rescued him from the little kids. Speaking of friends, Ted got a new Tshirt that he loves today! Thank you! You got him the Perfect Tshirt!

Great Tshirt

SmokeyDec27th2006 Smokey and Sawyer love to sit in the sun and look outside. Ted caught this picture of Smokey this morning. It was toasty inside and a little chilly outside. We enjoyed the day inside and ended our night with a warm fire. The boys always ask for a fire, so tonight we were able to have one since the temperature dropped some in the past two days.

Christmas Present
I finally got a new phone, well I got it Christmas Eve, for those of you who have been calling me, and dealing with my microphone cutting out on you sorry. Ted got this for me and said Merry Christmas. Now he is trying to get Tmobile to give him the unlock code so he can replace his Treo. My old Blackberry was never used to its full potential so hopefully I can use this new phone like its supposed to be used. On the my old phone I never used the contact stuff or even hooked it up to the computer. With my new phone I've already taken some pictures and surfed the internet, so thats at least a start. No if I can only figure out ...

Wishing you a Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
I hope all of you had a wonderful time with your families today. We all had a great day today. We spent part of our day with Ted's family and then the rest of the day at home doing nothing.

Moore Elves


Colby 1

Colby 2


Okay so we have no life and we like this elf thing. If you haven't tried it yet YOU HAVE TOO!

Thursday, December 21, 2006


Here is the one picture I caught tonight. Its of Ted and Matthew. He is teaching him how to make a Networking cable. For a little bit tonight Ted was trying to get all of that computer stuff straight. Thats a good thing, especially since he went to work with him this week. (He goes to work with him from time to time when homework permits, or when they need extra help)

The Stereo BOY?

Only Old Pictures

WHEEEEEEE Expedition Everest
By default I am posting old pictures. In the Roller Coaster pics the people in black shirts behind Matthew are friends, that you might have seen in our Photopass pictures that I posted earlier this week. I didn't get any pictures today. I spent a good bit of my day picking up those last minute Christmas things. I think I am just about done. We did pretty good earlier this year so we haven't had to do much crazy shopping in crowds stuff. Hi MOM watch for the RED shirt These pictures are from two weeks ago and these are some of my favorites. I've gotten lots more and might post them to the gallery eventually.

Shepard Boy

Shane as a shepard
Yesterday Shane sang along with other kids in his 4 and 5 year old class at church. The older elementary kids sang also and had some puppet skits. He had a great time singing. Hopefully I can get a small clip up on the web of him singing. Mattthew got a small snip of him singing. When he filmed it was really shaky and he missed getting Shane and got the wall and mikes in some spots. I'll just have to work with what we got. That is when I get a chance. We haven't even gotten our tree up yet, and I'm a day after Thanksgiving Tree person. This year it just didn't happen. I just hung our wreath outside a few minutes ago.

Making Memories

Old Pictures are fun

Every night we have been putting up Ornaments on our tree from a set that we got for a present awhile back. They are called Adornaments. This is the second year in a row that we have been doing this. latley I've been trying to think of different memories I've had growing up. Things my family did to celebrate Christmas. I'd like to hear what you did as a child or what you are doing now that you are older. Thats my mom holding my sister. I'm the one who is standing. The picture isn't from around Christmas, its from around Easter.

Ahhh Haircuts

Haircuts Dec 2006
The kids finally got a chance to get their hair cut.

Check out a video of their cousin Lucas chasing Matches around. Its not the best quality. When I get a chance I'm probably going to re-edit it since its choppy.

December is Here

Guys and tree
BubblesOkay so I know its already the 2nd. December crept up on us. I'm wanting to do lots of Christmas type things. I know how that goes though. Usually we don't have enough time or energy to do all the things I want to. Like today we had a Birthday Party first thing. Sawyer had a vist to the VET! LOL the vet said he might be drowsy after his shots. I didn't realize dogs got drowsy like kids. Dumptrucks are COOL! We did make it to the mall to see the decorations and just walk around. Thats one thing I always like to do in December and we got that done. So, the kids hair still isn't cut (Our favorite Barber closes early on Saturday WHOOPS) Now haircuts have to be a priority SOON! I got lots and lots of pictures today, but I tried to pick out just a few.

I'm excited about this stuff
If you don't notice two new boxes off to the left refresh your page. One should be a little box where you can view us LIVE! The other box is a text box where you can IM us LIVE! How exciting. If you do IM us or view our webcam try and make us know who you are by telling us in your first message or changing your name to something we would recognize, so we won't block you from viewing. If you do happen to get blocked just email us and we will fix it. This is just a trial. We won't be online at all times either. Sometimes you may be viewing an empty room or outside.

Google Clips Nov 06

Well Google is now finished processing the videos. Boy that took longer than I expected. The links are below. If you prefer watching Youtube (One is too big to load on Youtube) See yesterday's post. Click descriptions below.

Happy 3rd

Happy Birthday Colby

Yummy cake

Our little boy is now a big 3! He is no longer a little baby. We don't know what our life would be like without him. We all love him so much. We gave Colby his presents early this morning so he could have time to play with them. It remeinded me that I never got around to getting Shane's birthday present his camera fixed. It ended up being a cheapie. We had an old camera no one uses anymore so I put batteries in it and let Shane take whatever he wanted. I posted them on Yahoo. I will post a link below. I deleted one unflattering picture of Ted and I. My double chins were showing too much. I didn't want to scare you.

Snip of our day

I got some of the decorations out today. Or I should say Matthew got the decorations down from the attic, while I stood on the ladder and directed him on which box to rifle through.

Click here for more pictures from Shane I think he let his friends use the camera too during Colby's birthday party.

"To build ...

may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day." Winston Churchill

I think I may need to remember that one!

It's holding me up
Matthew is next!

Here is what the kids built with their kapla blocks. All had a good time even Ted. We are still missing our buddy Matches. Smokey knows he isn't here. He is still looking for him. Its going to take awhile to get used to.

Hello 3 Goodbye 15

Colby at his birthday party

Today we celebrated Colby's third birthday with our friends. We had a big pot of Chili, Nachos and snacks. We had out the Bounce House and sports stuff. They all had a good time. I was sort of out of it, because Ted wasn't here for a good part of the day. He is the more hospitable one and I didn't remember lot of things he would have. The past few days Matches had been acting a little wierd. By last night he was definalty sick. Ted took him to the vet the earliest opening they had. They recommended that he take Matches to the Animal Hospital for an overnight stay, and then follow up in the morning. When Ted got to the Animal Hospital and they reviewed his test results, they told Ted that he was really sick. His kidneys were failing him. If we rehydrated him it would just be days before he was really sick again. They were very nice about it and helped us with our descions. Tonight was Matches last night with us. Its is so hard to believe that Smokey's brother is gone. This is really tough and thanks everyone, who came to the party and were here with us today.

Super Sushi Eater

More Nemo Eggs

Sushi Tempura

I've been a little busy today and I didn't get any pictures. I hope I will get some tomorrow. These are from Friday when we took Colby out for Sushi. Thats what he wanted for his Birthday dinner. The owner recognized him, from the visit he and Ted made recently. She brought us a special dessert when she found out it was his birthday.

Lots to be thankful for

Shane and friendsOur family is very blessed. We have alot to be thankful for. I have too many things so I won't list them here because I try to keep these posts short. Colby and I spent Thanksgiving at home and with our extended family. I got a few stuffing our faces with food pictures, but none good enough to post. I will spare my family since they weren't as nice as last years pictures. Colby spent most of the day hanging out with his Grandpa and getting into his stuff in his garage (His garage is his hangout place). Ted, Matthew and Shane spent Thanksgiving with some friends and their family. They were borrowing him for some wiring help.

Thanksgiving Eve

Here is a Thanksgiving card I made online just for the blog. When you watch this, think of me singing this song to the kids. Thats the kind of stuff we do to the kids and the cats all the time. Everytime Ted or I start singing to Matches he runs away. I wonder why. CLICK HERE FOR THE CARD Click the lines below for different activities listed. Its just some Christmas stuff to get you started.
