The 12 Days of Christmas

Hello Everyone!
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. December went by so fast this year, filled with get-togethers with family and friends. Here's a quick overview of what we've done over the last month:

We cut down two trees this year, but we don't have a good picture of the second.

The first turned out to be too big for our house - the living room looked like a forest when you first walked in - so we opted for a smaller one from the hundred that we planted a few years ago.

Oh, in case you noticed, Delie is taller than I am ;(

Our early Christmas present from Mommy and Daddy - a Snowball! Our three-legged Blue Heeler, Amos, died this summer, so we got a great Pyrenees puppy. Pyrenees are supposed to be great with children, chickens and goats, so Snowball met all our criteria.

On Christmas Eve, the boys camp out in our room, and in the morning we all sit on the front stairs and wait for Mommy and Daddy to come get us. All of us get what we call "Moss eyes" when we first wake up, and I think this picture really brings it out.

We took a two-night trip to Virginia between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Above is picture of ALL of the Moore, Moss, and Moody children in age order. Someone counted, and realized that we had exactly twelve boys and twelve girls in the house!

Our church came over for pizza on New Years Eve. We fellowshiped until midnight, and then some of us went outside to shoot some firecrackers - and some impromptu twirling under the security light :D

Hope ya'll had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
