Race for the Cure

This past Saturday was our area's annual Race for the Cure event. This has been a longstanding tradition in the Davis household and Hannah did very well for her first time. We walked in honor of Chris's Mom who passed away last October after battling breast cancer for over nine years. We are thankful for those years we had together, but we all miss her very much. Hannah is lucky to have a guardian angel like her. I think the amount of people overwhelmed Hannah at first - you've got to wonder if she thought, "am I back in China?". But after a short while she got used to it and even dozed off a little bit. We are glad te rain held off until after the race.

After the race, we had an awesome breakfast at Mert's... good low country cookin'. While Hannah seemed to enjoy the eggs initially, they made for a very nasty surprise later in the day. Needless to say we had to change her in the middle of the Target parking lot and use her SECOND spare outfit for the day.

Halloween Decorating

Warning: There is no Hannah in this post.
I just wanted to share the Halloween decorations I put up in the front hallway. I was just really excited about how they turned out. That's all.


Hannah at the County Fair

Hannah got to go to her first fair recently and it was a big huge success. I took some pictures of her pre-fair because she looked so darn cute. And she was nice enough to keep the hat on longer than 3 seconds. We started our fair experience by being suckered in to one of those "Every Chance is a Winner". Hannah was very good at picking up a duck that yielded a prize (they all do, but what does she know?). Hannah won a rubber duck and a plush monkey.

Then we tried the merry-go-round. Hannah was extremely focused the first turn with me. She held onto the pole and looked straight ahead the whole time. By the second go around with Daddy, she was much more relaxed. Check out the high five with Cole - isn't that the cutest? We ended our day with some good ole' fashioned carnival food. Hotdogs and funnel cakes and french fries... oh yuck!


Ladybug at the Labor Day Picnic

Here are some shots from the Labor Day picnic. Hannah is a little daredevil and she could not get enough of being tossed around by her uncles. They did a really good job of catching her, much to Hannah's mother's delight.

The Return of the Cute (as if it ever left)

Just some examples of the acts of cute we are lucky enough to witness daily.
