It's fun being ONE!

Just some photo fun with Hannah. As always, TONS of pictures! Not a collage this time, but Enjoy!
she does this tongue roll thing ALL the time!

Prayer Request

Just a quick prayer request before I head off to continue packing. My right eye has been very blurry almost all day today. Left eye is fine so I don't notice it terribly, just a bit unbalanced vision. I've taken my contacts out a couple times to rinse them but it doesn't seem to make much difference, or if so not for long. As you know, we're headed off to Colorado bright and early tomorrow morning, in which I'll be driving a majority of the 8 hrs while Kevin sleeps since he's working 'til 6am. So please pray that my eyes are good and clear in the morning and clear all day! Not sure why I'm having so many problems with them lately! Thank you!

Take my picture!

Eli was playing around with the balloons (from Hannah's birthday) this morning, and he asked me to take a picture! Then he'd do something else silly with them and ask for another picture! Then he got into doing poses, holding the pose, waiting for the camera click, and then running to see it on the screen before going for another pose. He's so silly!

When I got tired of that I told him to make some silly faces for me. And that he did!

Learning new and important things every day!

Like how to do this!

This was today's new thing. She'd be quietly playing and then when you look over at her, surprise! she'd be on her head! Too cute!

Birthday pics

You know me, it's hard picking favorite pics because they each tell part of the story, but here are some highlights from Hannah's party:

Hanging out with the family after she just woke up from her nap
love this one as she's looking up admiring the balloons
Kevin had to work that day, so here's snuggles for Daddy when he got home.presents time!
Hannah loves playing with Eli's Doodle so we got her one of her own to put in "the church bag". She really just loves biting on the pen the most.
She liked playing with the little bag more than the actual toy. Isn't that how it always goes? =)
Some Valentine's toys sent from Aunt CarriThe adult cake. When I told Kevin to pick up the cake pan from the library he came back with just two simple heart-shaped pans. So I decided to just do a layered cake instead of a decorated cake. I'm not any good at that anyway, and by the end of the week I was exhausted from painting and fighting a cold and wasn't up for that kind of work anyway. Turned out just fine. It's a strawberry whipped cake, very light and tasty. The recipe is somewhere on my homemaking blog, but I couldn't find it anywhere to post the link for you.
Hannah's little cake. She LOVES whipped cream so I just put a drop of food coloring in it to make it pink and use whipped cream for her frosting so it wouldn't be as sweet as regular frosting.
Eli's favorite part of the day. He did this again, and again, and again:
one, two..."...tree!"

Happy birthday, baby doll!
