Holding a pic of baby sister- who we will hopefully get to meet within the next month!!
We have made a couple of visits with Santa thus far but have also had to discuss how we can't see him everyday; he has to go back to the North Pole sometimes; and others like to visit with him, too. Our Christmas list has been so fun listening to this year. It started off very simple with a candy cane. That's what she remembered Santa giving to her last year at the mall and that's what she wanted again this year. Then she realized that things could be requested....and a Dora Umbrella has been the highlight of the list. One Sunday she decided to announce that she wanted "a diamond"- this was totally unprompted and almost made water come through my nose. And to clarify, "a diamond necklace" was added. Yesterday she was sharing with Mimi her list and she added a big elephant. Thank you, Mimi, for explaining to her that they have to live at the zoo!

So we absolutely loved Halloween this year. It was great to be able to dress up, run from house to house, hay-ride in between, hang out with our friends and cousins, and get candy on top of all that! It was magical! Hope everyone had a spooktacular weekend!
On another note, I'm 29 weeks along and getting ready for our new addition. Hannah Kate could have been the bumble bee from the "No Rain" video - I sure could've been a melon. Hooker will be heavily outnumbered with the arrival of another little Hooker ladybug. We have officially moved HK into her new bedroom to revive the nursery for her little sister (pictures of Hooker's fabulous painting skills will follow soon). And the countdown can start...3 weeks til Thanksgiving, 3 weeks til Christmas break, and then 3 weeks until baby (hopefully)! I'm up right now due to the fabulous inability to sleep that comes along with the belly. But I did need to update the blog, so what does a little sleep matter, right?

This blog is way overdue. I haven't given up blogging...just needed some good blog inspiration, I guess. Life has been trucking along. We headed down to the pumpkin patch this morning to get out and enjoy this cold sunshine! Farmer Jim's pumpkin patch in Rolling Fork gave us a good excuse to get out and play in some cold air. We got to pick out some pumpkins and play in some corn for a little while. Nice morning out.

Hannah Kate is just so amusing these days. She totally picks up on everything and has kept us thoroughly entertained. Some of her latest sayings:
- Party pooper- She overheard me calling Daniel a party pooper and thought this was hilarious. Not for what it was, but because she thought I called him a "potty pooper". And she just giggled and called me a potty pooper and daddy a potty pooper and even herself a potty pooper. That was just ridiculously funny to her.
- Once upon a time- We've started telling stories alot lately. She likes to hear them and has started making up some of her own. Daniel took her to the lake the other day and she kept saying "Once upon a time there was a pig in the house." And that was her story. The end. When we visited Gigi a few weeks ago, we all went for a walk around the downtown. Hannah Kate found a little end of a sidewalk and began to tell the flowers and bushes a story about a mermaid and a mermaid house. Gigi and I just stood there in amazement. We couldn't understand all of the words but she was concentrating on this story with her "audience". We asked her to walk along with us but she "had to finish telling her story".
- God is great- She is a great blessing sayer. She was doing it "all by myself" ( which is the norm these days) the other morning and covered all her bases. Something like this: "God is great. God is good. Let us thank him for our food. Bless us oh Lord in these thy gifts which we are about to receive. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Amen."

Crawfish cookouts are a good reason for getting together around here. We cooked out a few weeks ago and just enjoyed a night with friends. All of our babies seems so blond right now. And most of us parents aren't. Maybe it's the brown Delta water?

Hannah Kate had an end of the year performance early in May that we truly enjoyed. We finally heard all of the songs that we'd gotten bits and pieces of....My love for Jesus is bubbling over, I've got peace like a river, He's got the whole world in His hands, This little light of mine, and Wheels on the bus. And saw all the hand motions as they were intended. And she loved the hand motions. She also went out and sat down in the audience on her own. And played with the mic stand. And walked around. But for 2, I'd say it was an outstanding performance. No biases.

We went to Columbus at the beginning of May for our first trip over that way since Christmas. It was a great little weekend with my family. It was also Market Street Festival dowtown, so we had to walk around and enjoy the fest!
Waking up a Gigi's house with Emma. Always a fun realization that someone is waiting to play when you wake up!

Okay, so I said last time....Hannah Kate found a new hiding spot. Isn't there some safety rule about not hiding in old appliances? I was only 3 feet away loading the dishwasher and I could hear her keeping busy- just had no idea what exactly she was getting in to. We're cleaning house today and I needed a break so I sat down to post these. Happy Saturday!

Mrs. Bunny was passing out more candy (thanks, lady).
And guess who stopped by Saturday night while we were getting our well deserved rest...
Lunch with Mimi and Papaw after Easter Mass.
So it was a great Easter weekend. One question came out that I wasn't sure the answer. "Where did the Easter Bunny go?" I know that Santa lives at the North Pole but wasn't quite sure where to direct this answer. So our Easter Bunny lives in the forest somewhere. On another note, Hannah Kate has been learning to hop, just like the Easter bunny. She can now get both feet off the ground for an official hop! I guess her motor development is kicking in because she's been climbing up the walls, too. On top of tables every time I turn around. ...up shelves...she can even climb her own high chair and get in it with the tray still on...not that this was something that I was wanting to see her do. She just showed me the other day. Also we have a new hiding place. Found her in the dryer as I was loading the dishwasher the other night. I'll post those pictures soon!
