First Gallery Exihibition

Luke does art everyday at school. I don't plan to hold on to every single piece forever, but its still too new right now to let anything go. For those of you who enjoy kid art--here is Luke's school work. . .

The first day. . . .

Hard to see this one, but there really was a lot of colors used. Luke, always a lover of circles, prefers to draw dots instead of lines with the crayons. He usually just jabs the paper with the crayon over and over until he throws the crayon or crumples the paper.

Second week, they focused on BLUE.

This day the teacher told me "Luke really focused well today. He glued it himself."

. . . . cows. . .

His other cow art was so good they hung it on the wall.

On to star week. Because he got sick, he only made one star project.

Sad, Sick, Slimy Baby

Around our house, we have been battling snot, slime, and drool since hurricane Gustav blew all the ragweed around. We've been treating Luke for allergies for a few weeks now but over the weekend he became extra grumpy, and by Tuesday he was miserable. Tuesday night was restless for all of us as Luke struggled to breathe through all the slime. That night he developed "stinky sick breath" so he bought himself a visit to the pediatrician first thing Wednesday morning. Surprise, surprise--he had a sick throat. I'll spare you the details and jump to the recovery. We started some antibiotics, round-the-clock tylenol/ibuprofen, and lots of yummy popsicles.

Here is our sad, slimy, sick baby.

Here he is checking out a popsicle. Trying to decide whether or not to eat this thing and how exactly.

So the popsicle was devoured and he cried when I threw the stick away. Don't worry, we have many, many more popsicles.

After about 24 hours of antibiotics & popsicles, Luke was starting to feel better. We went out to play in the backyard and we found a flower. I picked it and gave it to Luke who carried it around pretty much until it disintegrated.

Moore Family Update

Our life the past few weeks. . .

Luke started Mother's Day Out at our church here in town. We had a bit of a rocky start but things are getting easier every day. This is his first day of school picture.

I dont even remember what was going on here, but i think this is a face we will see a lot of as Luke gets older. Just found it when I was uploading my latest pictures and thought it was FANTASTIC!

This past weekend we got up early to head out to my parents house. My 10 year class reunion was this weekend and we didn't want to get stuck in Fort Worth due to the predicted hurricane Ike. Before we left, Luke was playing around and figured out how to make his easter chick chirp. He was pretty pleased with the discovery.

Thankfully, the wrath of Ike was much less than predicted. Gene and I gussied up and headed out to the reunion. Had to get a traditional shot of us in front of the fireplace. We had a great time at the reunion, but I was too busy yapping to remember to get any pics. whoops!

I've started some of my catalouge Christmas shopping and the packages have started to arrive. Guess I don't have to order anything else for Luke--he was perfectly happy to play with the box of packing peanuts.

Daddy helped out by making it "snow". . . its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. . .

What's better to an 18 month old than a box of packing peanuts? Stealing all three of your clean blankies straight out of the dryer! What a happy kiddo he was!

While we thankfully were spared the wrath of hurricane Ike, the wrath of hurricane Luke came down on our house this afternoon after school. He kept himself busy for about an hour and a half creating this mess.
