Brent's mom, Grandma Debbie was here for a week over Thanksgiving. And that is what I was thankful for!!! A little piece of home for the holiday!! We had so much fun with Grandma! Highlights of the week include a trip to the wild animal park, IKEA, & lots of Judah&Grandma time (Brent and I got out on two dates!!!)
For Thanksgiving, Micah and Erica and Erica's parents invited us over to their house for dinner. It was nice to have somewhere to go, and also somewhere we feel so comfortable. Steve and Lori Hilberg have been so generous to us since we have moved here, so hospitable and welcoming. And they love Judah! We have started calling Lori Judah's California Grandma! It was a boutiful feast complete with all the fixings, and pies freshly baked by me!! After dinner, Micha taught Judah how to play the x-box, a car driving game where you are supposed to crash cars! Then Erica cut Judah's hair, just a trim. It looks so good!! Here is a cute pic of Judah lost in the x-box world!
And one of Judah enjoying some long awaited apple and pumpkin pie.
Here's a couple of my favorite pictures from the wild animal park, a mama lion with one of her three lion cubs!

not much going on here...I'm getting more and more homesick the closer it gets to the holidays, but Brent's mom is coming down for Thanksgiving, and then up to Idaho for a week over Christmas, and I know it will be here in no time...at least I hope.
quick family updates...
Judah: super hyper lately, don't know why or what to do about it. We're just going to aim for a trip to the dog park every day this week, and hopefully run him into the ground...he's driving me crazy! He also fell pretty hard at the park this week, and almost bit all the way through his bottom lip. Poor, guy...he just goes and goes, and doesn't stop until he hurts himself.

On his favorite log at the dog park
Brent: well, there's more than I can write right now. Brent has had a tough week. If you think about him, please pray for him. He needs strength and rest. He is burning the candle on both ends. Not that there has ever been a time when he didn't live like that, for those of you that know him... Just pray, thank you!
Jager: LOVES his newest playmate (Moose the cat) and got to meet his half sister, Gracie, last week. Yes, his half sister! Some of our friends from church "rescued" Jager's half sister (same dad) and we went over there on Monday for a doggie play-date! I know, it sound cheesy, but they also have a 1 and 4 year old, so it was a play date for Judah too!
Jager coughing up a rather large hairball!!!
Moose: well, what can I say...a kitty is a kitty. He has alot of energy too, but loves to curl up on Judah's blanket, or on my lap, and take a cat-nap every once in a while. He is enjoying being worm/flea free, having a warm house to sleep in, and eating some really yummy expensive vet clinic cat food!
Where are all Jager's toys supposed to go?
Contemplating joining Judah in the bath
Alicia: I went out with Emily Saturday night to a concert(yes, I know, alot of concerts with Emily!) It was in San Juan Capistrano (south Orange County) at a little venue called the CoachHouse. Her husband's band, 24E was headlining, and another friend of theirs band was one of the opening acts. It was a great night to get out with the girls and have fun. (although they all made me drive over the scary windy highway!) Other than that, just hanging with the boys. (yes, it seems like I've been overrun with testosterone) I'm enjoying my new hairstyle, and the weather has been getting chillier here, so I've been able to pull out some sweaters, jeans, SOCKS, and my Doc Martens!!! (I haven't worn socks since March!)
Have a good week, all, and hopefully, we will be up and rinning again in the not too distant future!

I realized the main reason we had never had a cat in the past was b/c of Daisy's high cat aggression. So I thought to myself, why not? So with out any more delay, let me introduce to you, MOOSE!!
He is about 12 weeks old and sooo playful!! And after about 1/2 a day, he and Jäger are thick as theives. They play pretty hard together! And Judah loves him too.
Good Vet Tech in training, checking out kitty's teeth!
And if you are thinking, "hey, I thought Brent didn't like cats!" take a look at this!
