1st Prayer

Today Noah said his first official prayer!
Lately he has been waking up at about 5:30 every morning, just in time to say goodbye to Kirk before he leaves for work. Today he slept in until 6 and I went to get him out of his room, brought him into our room and he dove for the bed saying daddy…but Kirk was already gone.
We were laying there in bed for a few minutes when I heard Noah whispering. I looked up and saw him folding his arms, so I asked if he was saying a prayer. I asked him if he wanted me to help him and he repeated after me…(well at least the words he knew)…Fatha, tank you, day, mama, daddy, Hal-yee (Halle) gammy & papas’ then he mumbled a few more things in his own language, and finally--Amen!
I was so proud a few minutes later I called Kirk to give him the details. I love seeing him learn and grow. It is so incredible how influenced they are by everything around them.
Yesturday at church Kirk gave the opening prayer…and Noah was very attentive to it for once, at the very end a couple seconds after everyone you hear this deep grunt from Noah (in a very manly voice) AMEN…It was so cute!!! Everyone smiled & turned to see who it was, I think they were surprised to see little Noah.

Halloween 2009

This wasn't a totally decked out costume!!! My cute little bumble bee is missing her antenas and wings! But lets face it...she definitely can't fly if she has a hard time sitting up on her own.

Halle's cute CHEESER...she is proud of herself for sitting up.

Noah with his buddy Dawson! They were jumping from his bed to this mattress we had on the floor (Now his new bed)...he's so spoiled what 21 month old sleeps on a queen size bed?
(We needed the crib for Halle, I felt sorry for having her sleep in the pack-n-play.

Noah stealing candy...he can't even eat Reese's yet...but I know he will love them some day.

My little FIRE FIGHTER, striking a pose! He had a cute dalmation puppy that came with his outfit, but lost it a few days before Halloween.
Noah loved trick or treating. I took him out with our friends Ryan and Natalie, and their two kids Dawson and Ewan....Kirk stayed home w/Halle and his friend Cameron. Noah was so happy to get his candy & got so upset if I didn't let him go to a house. We lasted about 10-15 min. and then headed home when it started to rain!

We had such a great week! My mom and dad came for a visit Sunday night until Thursday morning! Becca and Levi drove up Tuesday night and stayed untill Friday.
Saturday we had our friends over for Halloween, did a little trick-or-treating w/Noah & then watched the YANKEES game!!! I couldn't ask for a better week!

Here are some of the pics of the visit:
Noah stayed up late waiting for Papa and Grammy to get here!!! He was so happy to see them, & it didn't take long for him to get comfortable in Papa's arms......
Noah loves riding the train. He was on cloud 9 the entire trip. Everything he did was way more enthusiastic than usual! I was worried about him being sad once PAPA & GRAMMY left...

This is Grand Central Station (the building in the bottom left)... it is AMAZING...All of the trains are located in this gigantic station.

The EMPIRE STATE building!

The city is way impressive just walking down the street, but even more beautiful up on top looking over everything.
The next 2 days it day we drove up to this farm w/my parents but didn't want to get muddy, so the day they left it was Sunny and we went w/Levi and Becca. Noah loved it!

Such a Beautiful drive

Kirk just had to imagine that this black horse was Hewey!!! I think he was a little sad to leave his horse behind. This farm is good for him to reminisce...

There were so many name it, they had it!...I only chose to post 1, so here's the Donkey.

I don't know who was happier: Kirk or Noah! Noah was happy playing w/rocks on the ground, where Kirk got excited over every little thing.... He's such a cowboy!

Like I said...NOAH was content playing with Rocks!!!

And leaves....what would FALL be any way w/out playing in leaves.

But Noah was most content driving the tractor!!!....and I wished my dad was still here! They use to do outside chores together ALL the time! Too bad when we visit in December, the grass won't need mowing!!!It was so cute, he was trying to start the tractor with my car keys.

Noah & Uncle Levi
Levi was so helpful w/the babies...and he is an excellent Dish washer! You can come over for dinner anytime :)
Me and my sister Becks!!! Salt & Pepper...and of course sweet little Halle!
