Playing Catch-up

Ok, here's a brief look from the past month

 My dad works in the town we live in, he stopped in to visit and read some books.
 Helen LOVES to be in front of the Christmas tree, look at the lights, and listen to music. Puts to sleep almost every time!
 This girl makes me smile! She LOVES to help and be very involved with everything. She had to dress up to help make dinner!
 I asked her to get dressed, this is what she came up with. LOVE it!
 Helen is growing so fast! She's already 11 weeks old and we love to get smiles and giggles from her!
 Great Grandma Moore sent us a gingerbread house kit. Lily did all the decorating and she had a blast!
 After a long day at church, Daddy and Helen needed a nap.
 We often prop Helen up in the corner of the couch. A few minutes later, she had sunk down a little bit and I couldn't help but giggle at these two BIG eyes peering out.
 Another little cowgirl on my hands! :-)
Helen giving us giggles. She makes us all smile!

Helen's Blessing

Helen was blessed on Sunday, November 4th. Brian gave her a beautiful blessing, brought tears to my eyes.
We're so happy she's a part of our family!
The beautiful blanket Helen is wrapped in, was knitted by her Great Grandma Beth. It's also the same blanket Lily was wrapped in on her blessing day.

Lily Turns 4

Lily turned 4!
She's our fun spirited, goofy, super smart, kind, and loving little girl. She means everything to us and glad she's ours!
Happy Birthday Lily!

 My mom and I took her to a pumpkin patch and it had little carnival rides. She enjoyed those!!

 We then met up with Aunt Anna and played at a park.

 A couple days later, we had a small little party, with family. We played some classic games.

 A couple of her gifts. A new scooter and a pink John Deere bike (with training wheels!)

We love this little girl!

Helen Ashby Moore joined our family on Monday, October 1st, 2:25pm.
Weighing in at 9lbs 3oz, measuring at 21 inches long
She is sweet, extremely good, and just what we asked for. 

We wanted her gender to be a surprise and she definitely surprised us! The entire pregnancy, everyone thought: BOY. When the doctor asked Brian (in the operating room) to reveal the gender, we were shocked with his answer. It was a wonderful surprise!!!

Just minutes old

Inside the New House

Ok, here are a few pictures of the more important parts of the house. I tried getting several different angles so you can, hopefully, get a good idea of what it's like.

 From the kitchen, looking into the laundry room, which leads to the half bath, which leads to outside. (my all time favorite part of the house, because it's great when dirty little feet come inside!)

Daddy's Girl

Brian has a little shadow, where ever he goes. 
She loves him to pieces (so do I!)

Cowgirl Lily

Lily is in love with horses and cowboys/girls! She knows all the horse tack, what it all does, and where it goes. 
My parents have 3 horses and Lily is on cloud 9 every time we visit. 

Her favorite horse, below, is Neo.
She loves brushing him and giving him treats, especially watermelon rinds.
