Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year! We stayed here in North Carolina and had Thanksgiving with about 8 other people...who were also family-less! We had quite a feast though and had a great time just hangin out with friends. Tonight our Thanksgiving is being extended b/c we are going to some friends house and eating pie. Yum, yum. I think there will be about 12 of us. When we got home last night, we decided to go ahead and pull the Christmas decorations out. Since we go to Texas and Oklahoma for over a week, I've got to get those decorations out as early as I can so we can enjoy them. Hayden had a ball playing in the Christmas tree box! He's actually doing really well with the decorations too. Every once in a while, I take him over to the tree and let him carefully touch one of the ornaments. For now that's making him happy. Here's a few pictures of our Thanksgiving dinner (they look like the same picture, but I'm in one, but not the other!) and of Hayden in the box. Now that we've given thanks, I can say "Merry Christmas" to everyone. I love this time of year!!

Nothin' New

My morning routine is to get up, get my first cup of coffee and check my email. Then I move on to "blog-land." I wish each blog I "stalk" would be new every day, but I know that's not gonna happen. Everyone still has their Halloween and pumpkin patch pictures up, including myself, so I thought, for the two people who read my blog, I'd add some new pictures. The sad thing is, I don't really have anything to report. Matt and I were just saying the other day that this is our favorite stage with Hayden so far. You'd think I'd have some funny stories, but I don't. We're getting ready to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with about 7 of our friends, then I get to come home and decorate for Christmas!! I love this time of year. The interesting part of Christmas this year is going to be how Hayden handles all the ornaments on our tree. I guess when you have a 15 month old, you put the unbreakable ones on the bottom. One of the pictures I included on this post is from our Young Married's party last weekend. We had a "favorite sports team" theme and played games and wore clothes that represented our favorite teams. Boomer Sooner!! I guess the other pictures are just some of Hayden at 14 and a half months old. Sorry for the boring blog this time. I'll try to be more creative next time. But hey, at least if you're sipping your coffee and checking blogs first thing in the morning, you'll get a new one from the Noe's!

How time flies!!

I honestly don't have anything to talk about, but I thought I'd put some of our Halloween pictures on here. I did include some from last year, just to show how much these sweet little babies grow in one year! The little lady bug is Jordan (flower last year), and Kendall is the chick (It's a girl! jack-o-lantern from last year.) And of course, our little monkey was a pea in the pod last year.
