Bubbles, Peanuts & Cheerios

Introducing the latest in couture:
A dress made entirely from bubbles. Look out Project Runway, here I come. One minute you are in... the next minute your dress dissolves.

We briefly considered shipping Hannah out. Just kidding, we were to lazy to take her to the McDonalds germ-filled ball pit - so we made one at home.

Evidence of Hannah's genius:
She used the pocket of her princess smock as a snack cup. Now why didn't I think of that?

Tiffany needs to be stopped.

Tiffany, your brilliant ideas are killing me. Let me explain - this year Tiffany, Audrey's Mom, sent us the most wonderful gift. A double picture frame with a picture of Audrey on one side in an AWESOME outfit and a matching awesome outfit for Hannah to wear with instructions to take Hannah's picture and then send one for Audrey's frame. Damn girl, you rock. Now before you say "What's taking so long", let me say that there was some mixup at our post office and our post master came to our door CHRISTMAS DAY to hand deliver the package because it somehow got lost in our "Huge" post office. Big oops. Anyway, I have completed my assignment and I am waiting on the print and I will send it you asap.

In the meantime, I am posting the outtakes because I think they are funny and I need blackmail for when she starts dating.



This year Hannah played an "angel" for two church Christmas plays. She acted just as you would expect a two year old to be - running around, getting distracted, walking off stage... basically stealing the show. I didn't get many good pictures of the angel in action, but here is one after the second show was over and she could play with the curtains.

We all got up early on Christmas morning to go to 7:00am mass. I was proud that we made it all on time. After a hearty breakfast, we came back home to open presents. Hannah was wonderful. She methodically looked at each present - and she started ripping at the paper only after she was told it was hers. She handed out our presents very nicely too. She wanted to play with each present as she opened it - giving fair attention to each, which made the process go pretty long. She was almost disappointed to have to move on to the next present. We took a little break in the middle and that seemed to give her a renewed energy to get through them all. Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts.
