Fun times with the one I love

I love the holidays and am looking forward to starting new traditions with my own family. We were at Walmart the other day and I happened upon a gingerbread house kit... I told Curtis I wanted to buy it so we could make one... he of course said no (he must think putting together gingerbread houses are no manly) and I bought it anyway. When he got home from work Monday I had the table & all our "ingredients" ready to go.
Curtis was hesitant, but once we started it turned out to be a lot of fun. A new tradition in the Moore house was created.
We even had a little help from another family member....

Curtis put the "frame"together while I snapped away with the camera
A little break to lick frosting off his fingers
Can you see the concentration in my face? I was working hard.
Princess showed up to help, but decided she wanted to eat the frosting too. I let her do it long enough to get a 30 second video and then we had to move her away and resume our work.
Our self portrait with the finished "house"
... And of course, the finished product. Curtis thought he would make ice sickles (is that how you spell it?) out of frosting, they ended up being globs all over the house. Oh well, we had a lot of fun and that's all the matters. Tonight... the tree goes up!! Hooray

I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving!

Did you...


I'm proud to say I did!

I need a little help

My grandma was hospitalized on Sunday due to a blood infection... She seemed to be doing okay, but last night we had a scare. They called to have the family come up to the hospital. She had taked a turn, she had a fever, and her breathing was labored. Her body is fighting the blood infection as well as a urinary tract infection (that she has had for 5 days and has gone untreated). They weren't sure if she was going to make it, so they called us all up.
They treated her with Tylenol which helped with the fever, had a chest x-ray and a blessing by President Conley and Jim Gartner and antibiotic drip. She started to come around. She had some issues with fluid around her lungs/heart that impeded her breathing, so they gave her a diuretic which kept her running during the night, but she slept well in spite of that.
This morning the nurse said that she believes the doctor knows what the blood infection is from, but we haven't heard yet.
I have never been so scared in my life... no one ever wants to get that call and I'm so glad that she able to pull herself through. It simply wasn't her time to go, so she didn't.
She will be in the hospital for at least 2 more days... please say a little prayer for my Grandma!

What is this world coming to? Just when I think everything in my life is going great... bam... it hits me out of nowhere.
Once in a blue moon I like to treat myself to a very special (& expensive) lunch. Every couple months I like to go to Schelde's for Soup and Salad... I always get Broccoli Cheddar soup and make my salad to go. I enjoy coming back to my office, eating my salad and savoring my amazing soup. It's just so good!! Today was my special day... soup and salad day. I drove to Schelde's, got my food and headed back to my office. I ate my salad and immediately dove into my favorite soup... mmm... how delicious it was, a couple bites in and
what is this...
this can't be right...
There it was...

an onion!!! Ewww....

Surly this must have been a mistake... a chunk of onion must have fallen in while they were making the soup.
I picked it out and went on my merry way.
I got about 3 more bites in before I saw another piece of onion.
This made me want to search further and sure enough... my bowl of broccoli cheddar soup had somehow turned into broccoli onion cheddar soup. How disappointing :(
Anyone who knows me, knows I hate onions.
I did my best to pick them out and keep eating, but I just couldn't. It was all too much for me to handle, I threw it away and have vowed to myself to find a new favorite soup. I just can't go back to someone who has hurt me so badly...
so today we say goodbye... goodbye to a delicious friend!
It was a great time while it lasted!!

Happy (Belated) Halloween

I had such a good one this year too...
It started with a visit to see the cutest fireman! Jake...

I wasn't in the mood to carve my pumpkin this year, so I let my husband do it. (Please note the DeWalt drill next to the pumpkin) He's so creative.

Curtis and Princess passed out candy to all the little trick or treaters...
... and we had one very special ladybug show up... Miss Marlee, the cutest ladybug EVER!
The pumpkin actually turned out pretty cute. (We had 3 people ask how we made such perfect circles... we never gave away Curtis' secret)
I hope you all had a great Halloween!!
