 Amidst all the unpacking, I helped the kids to build a box house.  They filled it with all kinds of toys.

 Cody got his Star Wars fix for the night :-)

 Sterling also played make-believe that night.

 Sterling also made his way onto Cody's b-day bike--helmet and all!

Cody and Amber decorated their box house with their own artwork.  BEAUTIFUL!

It's true!  I am pregnant...AGAIN!  When the "stomach flu" didn't go away, I knew I was pregnant.  Unfortunately, I am SICK, SICK, SICK!  However, we are excited to have our final baby.  This is it!  One final baby to add to the Hunter Moore Family.  YEAH!

Then and NOW!

 This is an AZ sunset.  BREATHTAKING!

 Hunter and I took a walk with Sterling.  He just loves being outside.  Even when it's 30 degrees!

 Mariah told me that she wants to save up to buy a horse!  AGH!  We don't even have a dog yet!!

 BYU BALLET came to visit Snowflake, AZ. YEAH YEAH YEAH!!
They had a princess party right before the show.  The girls were so excited to meet REAL ballerinas.  GO BYU!

 This is the view from our front porch.  Can't beat this! 

 This is where we came from (the view from Hunter's office on the 35th floor in Century City, CA)

 This is what we went through this winter :-(

 This is what it looks like now :-).

 I was sick this past week, and Hunter took good care of me :-)

Writer's Conference in Phoenix with my mother.  TOO FUN!

March update...

WOW--there's a lot to report!

Writer's Conference
I attended the ANWA Writer's Conference this past week, and I learned a ton!  For starters--this was my FIRST night 12 years!  I was SOOOO excited to be able to be in an ADULT environment without my four kids calling out, "MOM!"  I went to many different classes and learned about killer query letters, pitches, Barnes and Noble involvement, writing dialogue correctly and effectively, etc.  I met literary agents, authors and editors.  I was also accompanied by my good mother.

So, my mom and I arrived at our hotel in the early afternoon.  We were excited that we had gotten such a steal of a deal!  We learned, however, that you DON'T want deals in downtown Phoenix!  As we stood outside the filthy, locked "welcoming room", waiting for someone to come and give us our room key, a police car drove into the driveway.  In just a few words, they told us to get the heck out of there!  They said it was too dangerous to stay there.  We ended up being late to the conference, but we bunked at the Hilton instead.  GREAT decision!!  For about 3 times the cost, we lived it up that night :-).  I do love deals, but our deal was a JOKE!  Sometimes you just have to pay for it!

Sterling actually slept with his baseball this week!  I had to laugh because just last month, Mariah slept with her pointe shoes.  My kids are pretty protective over the things they love..haha!  I think they're worried that someone might come steal their precious items during the middle of the night.  Too funny.

Cody read all the AR books in his 1st grade class!  We are so proud of him :-).  Amber and Mariah are going to have their last basketball games this week, and they are excited that their Nanna and Poppy Moore are coming to see the games.  Mariah was just selected as 1 of 2 students in her Intermediate School to attend All State Orchestra!  YEAH, Mariah!

So, this man has been traveling ALL over AZ, lobbying for Navajo County citizens.  He went to Washington, DC. this week, and I expect to get a full report on all the big-city hub-bub when he returns later tonight :-).

We are moving into our new home THIS NEXT WEEK!!  YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!  Can you tell that I'm excited????  It will be wonderful to have our own home again :-).  We are going to jump right into renovation on the downstairs--creating a dance studio and waiting room.  YEAH!!  I can finally provide supplemental income from my own home!

My mother has written a musical called ARIZONA: SOUNDS OF STATEHOOD, and I am helping her put on a preview of the show at the end of March.  We have some of the most talented performers on the mountain helping out--so it should be a ton of fun!  Of course, there's always a lot of work that goes into these things, but the end result is always worth it.

Life is crazy busy, but it's wonderful.  I'm always aware of God's hand working miracles in our lives.  It's all good :-).
