Gosh, I’ve been such a bad blogger once again. Can I use the excuse that I’ve just been soooo busy?!! 🙂

Today I took a few pics of Hannah to use for her little Valentine’s cards and for once she had a blast. It could be the fact that I gave her a big ol’ sucker to sit there with! She sat there contently sucking on her sucker as I snapped away. It was a perfect combination! Final card preview coming soon. 🙂

In other Hannah news- she just gets smarter and smarter by the day. She can now name all body parts and even fingers and toes! She especially likes to point out facial body parts as daddy tries to sleep. It’s the perfect opportunity for her to point out his eyes, nose, mouth and ears. hee hee

Here is just one pic from today- Hannah, Bear and the wonderful sucker! 🙂

So good to see an update. What a darling Valentine picture!!! I hope you are well- we need to do dinner again soon with Joy and the little ones. Write when you can.

Christmas with Hannah

Well, Santa came to our house! Christmas was a blast for Hannah this year. Christmas Eve was spent with her Nana, Grandy, Bubba, cousins Carlee, Allie, Raegan and Aunt Tracy and David. We got smart this year and let all of the kiddos take turns opening all of their presents first and then got to ours. 🙂 They had so much fun!

Christmas morning Hannah slept in til after 8:30! When I brought her downstairs and walked her over to the tree she just stood there staring at everything in awe. It was so cute! It didn’t take her long to start tearing through everything though and checking it out!

Here are a few pics of her Christmas morning~

ETA: internet not working good so more to come later! 🙂

OH my !! Did she get a kitchen set? Cute cute cute. Hope you had a nice holiday! Happy New Year too!!

Hannah n Santa

Chad and I took Hannah to see Santa this past Tuesday night at the mall. We went on a weeknight thinking we’d beat the crowd but I think everyone else had that same idea as well! We waited for almost an hour to see the jolly old man himself. We even made a few friends during our wait! 🙂

Hannah had a blast playing with all of the kids in line and was in such a wonderful mood until it was her turn…..

Once I went up there with her she calmed down long enough to somewhat look at the camera. I was not prepared to be IN the picture though- I thought I was safe BEHIND the camera! 🙂

*sigh* perhaps next year she’ll think Santa is cool 🙂

“ahhhhh!!” what a face, Hannah!! Priceless, priceless. You all will never forget that moment. I hope you are doing well and had fun at the Nutcracker!!

Poor Hannah! I thought for sure she’d love Santa. At least you got a great smile on her face once you hopped in the picture. She’ll laugh at these in 18 years!!

I knew that would happen! The Easter Bunny and Chucky E Cheese cause the same reaction for Hannah! It’s too cute tho! We plan to take Hailey and Nathan this weekend. Merry Xmas (IHO Ms Jenny)!!!


It has been my mission the past couple of weeks to get a good picture of Hannah for our Christmas cards. It has been a very long journey to say the least. This is what I had gotten- keep in mind my “backdrop” was wayyyyy far to my left. 😉

After a trip to the annual Christmas parade this past Saturday (it was a looong two hours), we came home with a huge bag filled with candy much to Hannah’s delight. She took a real interest in the smarties so I thought I’d use it to my advantage. I decided to try just one more time to get her to sit still so I took her out to my “studio” in the garage and gave her some smarties. Holy cow- she sat there!! When she’d run out I’d toss a few more and it worked like a charm. I happened to get these two shots that I’m quite happy with. 🙂

This means I might just have my Christmas cards done in the near future- coming to a mailbox near you! 🙂

Some of the girls from work and I went to Sips-n-Strokes here in Birmingham tonight. We had so much fun sipping wine and painting a picture of poppies! Perhaps we had a little too much wine seeing as how we were the “loud” and most candid group out of the bunch. oh wait- but we’re always like that! 😉

Here are a few pictures from our evening:

working on our “vaaases”

adding the final touches…

The finished product!

That looks like so much fun! My girlfriends and I would love something like that. We do wine night at the pottery place sometimes, but I love the idea of painting a picture.

And like your group… we would be the loud ones too!! =)

That’s so cool! I’ve never heard of something like that.. The paintings came out great..even with the ‘sipping’.. 🙂

Andrea - November 25, 2007 - 10:45 pm

Oh how fun! I would love to do something like that! Your painting turned out great!
