ER visit

With Noah so active and into everything I keep thinking any day we will have our first ER visit. Little did I know it would be me, not Noah, LOL.

It has rained probably 10 inches this past week. I went to feed my colt and the pony and one of those long cattle feeders was full of water which made it weigh a ton. I needed to dump the water out so I could feed them. So instead of calling Jonas to come help me, I decided I could empty it myself (first mistake) I squatted down, dug my heels in and pushed with all my might hoping to turn the feeder over. Well I slipped because of all the stinking mud and fell face first into the water, getting soaking wet and splitting my chin open in the process. I hit so hard it almost knocked me out and when I saw all the blood dripping from my chin I knew I was in trouble. The cut was not very long but deep enough I could stick my finger tip in it. So I called Jonas for reinforcements.

We decided that it would probably need stitches so I left Noah with Jonas and went to the emergency room at Paris. There is a lot to be said for small town hospitals. A tetnus shot and three stitches later I was home in less then an hour. Noah is very interested in mama's boo boo. It was feeling better today until his head happened to run into my chin when I was putting him in his carseat...ouch!!

We had to run to Van Buren today so we picked up my friend Sunny and swung by Lowes to get some tomatoes for Noah to plant. He is all about planting and watering so I thought it would be a fun little project for him. Here is a pic of us today after we got them potted.

I thought this other picture was cute. I was fixing him lunch the other day and I told him to go sit at this table and this is what I found. He had pulled up two chairs and put mooley in one and he was sitting in the other patiently waiting on his lunch.

We have a busy weekend coming up. We are having a memorial barrel race for my very good friend, Gayla who passed away last May. There are several entries so it is going to be a great race that I know she would be so proud of. I still think of her and miss her several times a day but as time goes by it is getting easier not to be so sad but to think about all the wonderful times we spent together.

Why we love Tuesdays and Thursdays

Tuesday and Thursday are our favorite days because I don't have to work and Noah and I get to do "fun" stuff all day. It is getting hard to stay in the house and get our house work done since the weather has gotten so pretty. I did do some cleaning and laundry this morning because I think Jonas was starting to get nervous, LOL.

Tuesday we met some of our friends at the park. Noah had a big time, running everywhere and following Drake thru the playgound. Drake is a year older then Noah so he is a little braver. He will go down the really big slides and such. I watched Noah climb the "big slide" stairs after Drake but he promptly climbed back down after Drake went down the slide. As the day went on he got braver and suddely he came flying down the really tall slide. His eyes were huge and he had an immense look of fear on his face. He didn't cry when he got to the bottom but he didn't go down again either, LOL!

Then today we went to the lake at Charleston and met Rachel with G and L. The boys were so wild. We tried to have a picnic but the boys had no interest in eating. This poor couple were trying to have a nice lunch together and it was interrupted by lots of screaming and running around the picnic area. Then we took a hike around the lake looking for snakes and bears as the boys put it. Noah tries to keep up with the bigger boys and his little knees are showing the effects. They are just raw from him falling so much. I guess we are going to have to start wearing jeans (which he hates...he says, "no jens, no jens, mama!") Plus it doesn't help that he won't let me put a bandaid on the scrapes. I guess he is just 100% boy.

Long time, No Post

I know it has been forever but things have been so busy I just haven't had time to sit down and post anything.

I guess we will start with Easter. Easter was pretty relaxing down here. It rained all day and we were all tired from getting up so early for sunrise service (especially mommy who got home from the rodeo at 4:30am and then was up at 5:30am to get ready for church...won't do that next year, LOL) so we all took a nap and then went to Nana's for lunch. It was a nice, relaxing day. Noah of course loved the candy in his easter basket. It has caused quite a few time outs.... which by the way Jonas and I are starting to wonder if time out is working since Noah sings, laughs, ect. while in the "notty chair"??? LOL

Noah is very active so we always have a lot of funny stories. I will share a few.

The other day I was cleaning stalls and Noah was chasing the cats and just playing in the barn. He got awful quiet so I went and checked on him and he was sitting in the tack room eating a bag of horse treats. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "Eatin ookies mama, yum!"

Then in the bath tub the other day he decided that his train was a coffee mug and he was filling up the car with bath water and drinking it saying it was hot coffee, LOL.

His favorite thing to do is check the turtle traps in our ponds. We have two turtle traps to help control our turtle population because they eat the fish and fish food. We stocked our ponds with bass so Noah could fish this spring/summer. Although Mommy would prefer a catch and release program, Jonas and Popsey (Jonas' dad) don't quite agree. So when you ask Noah what you do with the turtles in the trap he says, "We smash em'", "Poor turtles"..... I am still working on a catch and release program, LOL

My barn kitty had 5 kittens yesterday. Noah is very excited and I feel sorry for these kittens when I finally turn Noah loose with them. Between horses, dogs and Noah I will be lucky if any of them survive. There are 2 all white ones and 3 gray ones. I couldn't get Noah to smile in this picture but it was hard enough trying to take the picture and make sure he didn't squeeze a hour old kitty to death, LOL.

Breakfast and a Bunny

This Saturday our church had a "Breakfast with the Easter Bunny" event where all the donations went to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of the sweetest little boy, Eli, who's grandma goes to our church. The first picture is of all the egg hunters, LOL. Getting all of them to stand for a pic was a chore to say the least.

It was a wonderful time. Noah had talked and talked about seeing the easter bunny at church. However as soon as he saw him he froze. I think we were the only little boy who had to have mommy sit on the easter bunnys lap too for the picture. Oh well, he is just at that age I guess. A little boy from Noah's school came and it was so cute to see the two of them. They were so excited to see each other. Noah has really gotten into his friends from school and church. He talks about them all the time. Anyway after breakfast they had an egg hunt. It only took Noah about two seconds to figure that out and he was a maniac. He had so many eggs that his basket got too heavy and he couldn't carry it.

Then Saturday night Jonas went with me to a rodeo I was entered at and Noah stayed with his Nana and Popsy. The rodeo went really well. It was super tough and I would have won a check and I barely hit the third barrel. This was a much needed confidence booster for me and my horse. Being a mom it is hard to stay competitive in a sport that is so tough. It has taken me a while to get my "mojo" back so to speak. I feel like I can run with the tough's again....yee haw!!!

This last picture is of Noah playing in his "wroket sip" aka...rocket ship...aka dryer....

March Madness- Gattis Style

I had to post a few pics of our first baking experience. On Saturday it was cold and rainy so we stayed in all day. I was tired because I was up all night before with a colicing horse. So it was nice to stay in all day and relax with the boys.

Noah and I decided to make a cake. He was such a big help. He pulled a chair up to the counter and helped me mix all the ingredients. Then I introduced him to licking the beaters...and boy was that a hit. The only problem was he would get the beater clean and then just dip the beater back into the cake batter to get more. The last picture is of him after he got to eat his "masterpiece".

Today while I was in the shower he decided to give Mooley and Bunny a bath.....The video pretty much explains everything.

Branson Vacation

We had such a fun weekend. We went to Branson with some friends of ours, Becky, Brad and thier little boy, Drake. The boys were such a mess all weekend. We got off to a late start Friday night (mommy's fault cause I had to meet the horse shoer) so we didn't do much by the time we got up there.

Saturday it rained all day so we got around sort of slow, it is vacation right, then ate breakfast and after nap time we went to play indoor putt putt. Noah is just a little busy at his age for putt putt. He is such an explorer, he couldn't stay focued, LOL. Drake is 3 and loves golf, so he was more into it. I ended up taking Noah to the arcade while they finished the round of putt putt.

Then we ate dinner and went back to the hotel to let the boys swim. Luckily our hotel had an indoor pool and they LOVED it. Both boys cried when it was time to go back to the condo. Jonas (conviently) forgot his swimsuit so I had to swim which was a good reminder to start working out before summer gets here, LOL. I was suprised at how well Noah liked the water. He swam quite a bit and I was able to let go of him several times. In the video you can hear him say "we did it" when we get back to the side of the pool.

Then on Sunday, Jonas and Brad went to play golf while Becky and I took the boys shopping. I was so proud of the boys. They didn't complain too bad...although we did bribe them with ice cream. I found some great deals at the outlet mall so I was excited about that. Then we went and ate sushi and took the boys to ice cream.

After ice cream we met back up with the guys (barely...Becky and I had to hold up the whole duck production so they could get there in time) and went and rode the "Ducks". I felt so bad for Noah. He was so excited and then fell asleep during the ride. I kept trying to wake him up when we went from land to water but he was just passed out. The last picture is of him asleep during the duck ride.

This week will hopefully be a little slower. I feel like we have been crazy around here. My friend Caroline had her second baby girl on Friday. I can't wait to get to see little Mazzy. Noah and I are planning on cooking them some food tonight and then going over tomorrow. I will post some pictures when we get home.

Funny Videos

I took these videos the other night when I was trying to get Noah ready for bed. He was in a pretty good mood and wasn't wanting to put his PJ's on.

Unfortunately he is sick again. I am wondering if this will ever end? It seems to be one thing after another for the poor little guy. Other then that there isn't a lot to report around here. Jonas went on a fishing trip with some friends from church last weekend and I went to a barrel race. It rained and was cold all weekend so we were both pretty miserable. The weather was beautiful today and it is supposed to be nice all week. Maybe spring has finally arrived.

Have a good week everyone.

Happy Birthday Mommy...or Noah...

It has been another busy week here at the Gattis ranch. We had another horse get sick. I guess, when it rains, it pours.... This time my colt got a joint infection from a bad injection. So I rushed him to the vet Tuesday am. So this week we had two horses spending a weeks vacation at the vets. They were both pretty sick so it wasn't really a vacation for them...or our pocket book, LOL! The good news is they are both home now and we expect them both to make a full recovery.

Friday was my birthday. When we woke up that morning Jonas started singing "Happy Birthday" and Noah got upset, insisting that it was HIS birthday. He was very crabby all day and actually started throwing up around 5pm that night. As I was cleaning the puke off my arm and leg, I decided "mom birthdays" aren't near as glamorous as regular birthdays, ha ha! Mom and Dad brought us pizza and oreo ice cream cake and we celebrated my birthday. Noah was so funny, he had to blow out the candle and open my card...because it was "his birthday". He threw up several times during the night and was fine by the morning. There is a lot of stuff going around right now...I will be ready for spring.

Saturday Noah felt better so he hung out with his Daddy and Popsey. Jonas and his Dad are going on a fishing trip next weekend to Texas so they spent the day getting the boat and all their fishing stuff ready. I took Shooter and went to the barrel race. They had about 60 entered and I won 3rd in the 1D. I had a couple rider errors in the run but all in all I am very pleased with my horse right now. I have been working harder then I ever have as far as my barrel racing and it looks like all the work is starting to pay off. I have won money the last four runs I have made.

I give riding lessons to some girls from Fort Smith. They are so sweet and they got me a gift certificate to Shogun's for my birthday. So Saturday night Mike and Susan kept Noah and we went with some friends to eat. We had such a good time and the food was amazing. The late night and the time change are killing me today but it was way worth it. I had Susan take a few pics before we went out last night. Hope everyone has a good week.

This past week

On Monday, Noah's birthday, we took Noah to Chuck E Cheese. Mom and Dad and Joey and Sandi met us there and Noah had a great time. He talks a lot about how he didn't like Chuck and he was scared but he likes Chuck E Cheese, LOL. I guess if I was two feet tall I would be scared of a big dancing mouse too.
The last few weeks have been pretty busy because I have been running Jonas' horse back and forth to the vet trying to figure out what is wrong with him. We think we have it figured out and I have to take him today to start treatment. It is pretty serious but we think we caught it early enough for him to be ok, however the treatment will be hard on him. We all love him very much so please pray for his full recovery.
The weather was nice on Thursday so L got to come over and play. The boys had a great time but man are the ever boys, LOL. Out of all the toys we had I think they had the most fun playing in the gravel on the driveway. I tried to get some good pics but the wouldn't slow down long enough for me to get any. I think L's shirt in the picture sums up the whole day, LOL. They were both so dirty by the time they got done it was amazing. I didn't know boys could be so mischevous....

Then on Saturday Jonas and I went to a "Focus on Marriage" seminar through our church put on by "Focus on the Family" . They had several really good speakers and I hope Jonas learned something, LOL....Just kidding, I think we both learned a few things. Saturday night I went to a rodeo and won 4th on my horse. This will be his first full year going to rodeos and it is different for him then a regular barrel race so I am very proud to get a check at our first outing.

Yesterday we stayed home from Chruch because Noah was still running a fever. He did get better towards the end of the day so Nene and Papa came out to play and eat dinner with us. He was dying to show Nene his park so we bundled up and went out for a few minutes. It was very chilly though so we didn't make it long.

Jonas went to a roping yesterday. Since his horse has been sick he has had to ride his "backup horse". His heeler missed to win the roping and I am very proud of Jonas for roping so well even though he wasn't on his number one horse.

Noah is still sick this morning. His little nose has ran so much it is raw and now bleeding. We all had a rough night from his coughing. He is very cranky and I feel so bad for him. I am going to call the doctor today and see if they can get him in. I hope everyone has a good week!

Birthday Party!!!

Wow, I can't believe my baby is turing two! Noah's birthday is tomorrow but we had his "big" party today. You know how when you are little it is more like a "birthday week". (Jonas makes fun of me because I never really outgrew that...my birthday week is coming up... woohoo) Anyway, we are going to take him to Chuck E Cheese tomorrow for dinner but today was his friend party. He was so excited about his party and he has been talking about it for weeks. It definately didn't dissapoint because he had such a wonderful time. It even turned out better then I thought. With it being a little chilly today we couldn't have it outside on his new playset like I wanted and I was afraid the kids would get restless in the house. It all went great.

He wanted a construction party, big suprise...so I found some construction hard hats and stickers. All the kids really enjoyed putting their stickers on the hats amd then wearing them around (sorry about the static electricity, Billie, LOL). I also found some bob the builder temporary tatoos which were a big hit. The kids were all really great and everyone seemed to have a big time.

While they were doing their hats and tatoos Noah said," sing happy birthday then eat cake". So I guess he was ready to eat cake, LOL. Between cake and presents the rest was a big blur to me. Luckily Jonas was taking pictures and videos.

Tomorrow I have to take Jonas' horse to the vet in the morning but then on our way home we are going to stop at Toys R Us, because he got a little bit of money, and let him pick out a special toy.

Thank you everyone who was able to come and thank you for all his wonderful presents. It was a really awesome day. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.

On a side note I have to say how proud we all our of my Dad (Noah's Papa). He competed in a triathlon yesterday (swim 20 laps, bike 10 miles and run 3 miles). He is 68 this year and he won his age group beating his time from last year by 7 minutes. He is an inspiration to me, as I sit and eat another piece of birthday cake.... We love you Dad!!!

These pictures aren't that great becuase the kids were having so much fun I couldn't get anyone to sit still for a picture, except when they were eating cake of course.

I thought this last one of L was so cute. Look how he strategically placed all his stickers in a neat row :)

Valentines and Bob The Builder...Live

Yesterday was kind of quiet. In the morning I made cinnamon rolls, Jonas and I exchanged cards and we let Noah open his Valentines present...of course it was a Bob the Builder toy. Then I went to the barrel race and the boys stayed home. I have been working really hard on my horse getting some things lined out and he worked really good so I was super excited.

Jonas and Mike worked on Noah's new playset for the backyard (his birthday present). They managed to get it all set up and Jonas waited until I got home to show it to Noah. When he walked around the house and saw it he said, "Whoa, it's amazing!!! LOL! And then he took off running. Then it was a major fight to get him in the house for dinner. He calls it "his park". I didn't have my camera but I will get some pics later this week.

Today was quite the day for our little Noah bug. We took Noah to see "Bob The Builder..Live". His Nene made him a Bob t-shirt the other day and he looked so cute.

We started the day at P.F. Changs...which both the boys hated, LOL. They are the steak and potatoes type, but they sacraficed and let me pick the restaurant since it was sort of our Valentines Lunch because we didn't do much yesterday. The food was so so good. Then we took Noah bug to Build A Bear and he chose the Koala with a construction hard hat...go figure. I think there was a Koala on Diego the other day or something.

Then off to see Bob. When we got there, and I have to tell this because I was so shocked, they had a souviner table. The prices were outrageous. Last week, I ordered 12 yellow hard hats for Noah's birthday party next week (he wants a construction party) and it was around 6 dollars for all 12 of them. Well they had those exact same hats with a bob the builder sticker smacked on them and bam....they were $25!!! I couldn't believe it!! We opted for the $5 Bob hold up figure. He liked it just the same.

We had front row seats. We could actually touch the stage without even getting up out of our seats. I was a little worried because we were right by a speaker and Noah doesn't like loud noises. But he absolutely loved it. He was in awe during the first half and just sat there in a daze. The second half he really got into it....singing, dancing and waving his Bob figure. They were big on no camera's during the show and the camera nazi was stationed right by us, so I couldn't get any pictures during the actual show. But I got some before and during intermission.

Then I got this video on the way home. He was so wound up. With no nap during the day I was sure he would pass out on the way home. No such luck. He sang his Bob songs all the way.

Riding with Mom

The weather has been just beautiful the last few days and Noah has really enjoyed all the time he is getting to spend outside. Today I took my camera to the barn to catch some of the funny moments.

First he loves to help me clean stalls. He opens and shuts the gates, helps empty water buckets, and helps pick up "poop" with his stall pick. He is so funny because he will grunt and groan trying to pick up a water bucket or pick and then look at me and say "it heavy mama, I need help"...yes and he isn't two yet. He has an unbelievable vocabulary that is for sure.

I'll start with a picture of my horse. I have had several horses over the years and nothing compares to Shooter. While he is an extreme athlete (the fastest and quickest horse I have ever rode with a huge heart and tons of try) he is dog gentle around Noah. It is like he knows Noah is small and he is protecting him. I absolutely love him. He is just irreplaceable. So Noah helps me brush him and saddle him. He even helped me clean his feet out today. I would hold his foot and Noah would clean it with the hoof pick. So, so cute!

Then I asked him if he wanted to ride Be Bop (his pony) and he said, "No, too small, I ride Shooter". LOL! Poor Be Bop. So off we go.

Well he loves to ride. And eventhough, he looks nothing like me, he is definately my son because all he says while riding is ..."wanna go fast mama...go fast mama". So in the video below we are "going fast". It is hard to hear but he says "wanna go fast" at the beginning and then "yee haw" at the end. I don't know who was laughing harder me or Noah. He was bouncing so high and laughing so hard toward the end I started to get nervous he would bounce right out of my arms. Oh, he is a mess....

He did decide to ride Be Bop after I went to exercise my horse. He rode a long time today. I think we are in trouble....I think he might have the same "fever" we do.

Breakfast with Mooley and Belle

I though he looked so cute this morning so I got my video camera out. He wanted some eggs so while I was making them, he pulled out his table and sat "Mooley" down and was sitting waiting patiently for his breakfast when I brought his eggs over. He is getting so big.

Of course Belle is right in the thick of things waiting for the slightest piece of egg to be dropped on the floor.

On a down note..we are going to have to give Daisy (Noah's puppy away). Luckily Noah is too little to get attached. But she has started crossing the highway over to Mike and Susan's. At first it was just when we would go over there and now she does it all the time. I am worried if she stays here she will get hit by a car. She is a sweet dog, but high energy so she needs a lot of room to run. She is potty trained as far as the house, but she is too high energy to be in the house (in my house at least, LOL) She is a papered border collie if you know of anyone who might want one. Good home is a must whereas she is such a sweetie.

Relaxing weekend

This weekend was really nice. Jonas went on a squirrel hunt with some men from our church. So Noah and I went on a date Friday night. We met some friends from church and went to Fort Smith. We ate pizza and then went to McDonalds for dessert. Of course McDonalds is always a big hit with Noah. Drake (his friend who is 3) helped him up in the gerbel cage thingy. I was glad that Drake assumed this job because usually mom or Nene have to crawl up there with him (man those things stink!). After "donalds" we went to Wal-Mart which is always a big hit because it has a Bob the Builder ride on toy that we usually spend all our quarters on.

Jonas got home Saturday and since it was such a beautiful day (67 degrees) we worked in the barn, exercising horses and hauling hay. Noah was a big help to daddy hauling hay and he also helped me ride Shooter. Noah has a pony but he always wants to ride with mommy and daddy, so Shooter and Nickel get the call.

Today we went to church and then had a "souper bowl lunch". Everyone bought a different type of soup and Noah had a blast with all his friends as usual. There are several kids close to Noah's age and they get pretty wound up at times. It is really cute to watch. As expected Noah was very tired after church and this first picture was taken when I woke him up from his nap. He does not do well if he gets woke up early.

Then we went and exercised our horses. I rode my colt today and that is always a chore. Noah spent some time with Nana and Popsy and they rode around and checked the heifers. He loves to help count the cows. It is so cute. He gets to ten and then has to start over because that is as high as he can count.

We got invited to a couple super bowl parties tonight be we were all tired and just wanted to stay home and relax. We have a very busy couple of weeks coming up and I knew we wouldn't have much time together coming up. This last picture is of Noah and daddy playing their favorite game. Noah wants daddy to "throw up high". He puts his arms up as high as they will go and laughs and laughs. Hope everyone has a good week.

Camera fixed!!

I got my software reloaded and everything works fine again. Here is a picture of Jonas with the saddle he won. If you know Jonas very well then you know I had to beg, borrow and steal to get this picture. I am just so proud of him. His horse is only 4 and he has done such a good job bringing him along.

This video is of Noah and Belle playing the other day. Noah loves Belle, but I am not sure the feeling is mutual. Belle loves how Noah gives her food and that is about it. You can see in the video how Belle never takes her eye off his "suck suck" (translation sucker).

We are in the process of a nasty ice storm. They are predicting us to get anywhere from 0.5 to 1 inch of ice. We haven't lost power yet (praying we don't). Luckily Mike and Susan have a propane stove so if worse comes to worse we will at least stay warm over there. While it is nice to stay home and get some things done I am really ready for spring. I don't do cold, that is for sure. Hope everyone has a good day!

Computer Trouble

I am sorry that I haven't posted in the past few weeks but my computer got a virus. When they cleaned the virus off my computer they somehow messed with my camera software and I am having trouble downloading my pictures off my camera. So this post won't have any pictures but hopefully I will get that fixed soon.

Things have been business as usual around here. Noah is getting a few new teeth and that combined with his "ba dems" (translation...bad dreams) have made for some sleepless nights around the Gattis ranch. His dreams have made him not want to sleep in his crib. Our bed was getting really small, really fast, so we borrowed a twin from Susan and he likes that much better. He calls it his "big cot". The sleep on cots at school and he really likes that. I guess he is growing up (tear). His vocabulary is amazing lately. He is now speaking in four and five word sentences. Pretty wild considering he isn't two yet.

Jonas and I had a big weekend and Noah was in heaven between both sets of grandparents caring for him. Jonas went to a roping in Little Rock. He won the roping and won a beautiful saddle. I took some pics and will post them when I get my camera fixed. I went to a barrel racing clinic. It was three days and I learned a ton but boy and I tired.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and I will post some pictures as soon as I get that figured out. I am just too tired to tackle that tonight :)

Sicky Sunday

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. It seems like the week goes by so fast and then the weekend goes by faster. On Friday night I left for a women's retreat with our church. Although I was dreading leaving my family (I miss the boy's so much when I am gone) I had a wonderful time. We have found a great church and the women are all so much fun.

I took this picture this morning when Noah and I were getting ready for Church. He was fine this morning and then all of the sudden he got sick this afternoon. I am ready for spring so all the winter sickness will go away. He got progressively worse (fever and snotty nose) as the day went on and I am thinking we will have to make a trip to the doctor tomorrow. I am afraid his cold has turned into bronchitis.

Jonas has worked all weekend helping our friends lay water and sewer line for their new house, but Mike and Susan kept Noah today so I could get my horses rode. I am sure my horses would perfer me not getting to ride but I am so thankful for Mike and Susan. Without thier help my horses would be fatter then they already are, ha ha! The weather was beautiful today and I wish it would stay this way a while but I think it is supposed to get cold again tomorrow.

I took this picture when Noah fell asleep in the chair. Isn't he so precious when he sleeps!

This is his "hat". It is actually the box that all his play food for his kitchen came in. But he perfers to wear it as a hat. I call it his "chef hat". He is very into his kitchen. He is always cooking me hot dogs and the other morning he cooked me a donut. I would have given anything for a real chocolate donut, ha ha!

Mount Magazine Trip

We had such a fun day yesterday. My niece Breanna and her boyfriend Luke are here visiting and we thought it would be fun to take them to Mount Magazine for some scenery and a little hike. Although it is much prettier on the mountian in the fall, the weather was perfect (70 degrees) and we had a really fun time.

Then we came back to the house and ordered take out from a great steak house down the road. It was such a fun day. They are planning a trip to Tulsa to visit some museum's and although it would be fun it wasn't a "noah friendly" trip so we decided to stay home.

This last pic was taken on New Year's Eve. I rarely have a picture of Noah and I because I am always the one taking the pictures. Jonas and I were invited to a dinner party at our friend Natalie's house. She fixed her grandmother's famous spagetti and meatball recipe and oh my it was SOOOOO good! We had a really good time.
