March hodge podge

Aunt Mimi, this first picture is for you. We are ready for the rain!
We celebrated Poppy's birthday.

(sorry, I've had lots of blurry pictures lately- either I'm too excited to be taking pictures or I need to figure out a better setting...)

Uncle Mark and the monkeys...

Still being a pretty great big sis...

Hannah Kate, Reed and I went down to the coast for a wonderful family weekend. We picked up my mom and sister and niece in Meridian and drove down to Diamondhead/Gulfport/Bay St. Louis to see family and celebrate babies and anniversaries. We stayed at the McMath Hilton (my aunt's house) and started the weekend off by welcoming the arrival of Georgia Mae Palmisano- our newest cousin! My cousin Vivian went in to labor Friday night before the shower that she was hostessing for her sister Katherine, who is due in May. Saturday, we showered Katherine at a lovely restaurant right on the beach in Gulfport- The Chimneys. And Saturday Daniel and I celebrated 6 years of marriage, too! Then Sunday we went to mass in the bay where my grandparents were married 67 years ago. Then back to my aunt's for a luncheon honoring Nana and Pa and 67 years of marriage! It's always so much fun to be around all of my aunts and get into good conversations. It was such a happy weekend!

Sparkling princess teeth

We had our first trip to the dentist this morning and got our little pearly whites cleaned into princess teeth...because all the princesses have sparkling white teeth, you know. HK did great in the chair (our dental hygienist was wonderfully geared for a 3 year old, too). She got to check out the teeth ticklers and fancy water squirters and suckers and even got some shades because the lights were bright. She stole away like it was Christmas, too- all loaded down with prizes and gear to keep our mouth cavity-free for the next 6 months!
