Peace In!

Hannah coined a new phrase that I think we all should employ. Instead of saying "Peace Out!" when walking away from someone, Hannah has started to say "Peace In!". I think we all could use a little more peace, don't you?

Gymnastics - A Progress Report

I figured that it has been too long since we talked about gymnastics. Hannah is doing really well and looks forward to her class every week. Before taking the class, she was fearful to jump off things - but now we see that she is more willing. She is still cautious but at least now she will "look before she leaps" as opposed to just looking, no leaping.

She is a charmer and while I think she drives her coach crazy (Coach G has the patience of Job) she gets along very well with all of the kids both in her class and the older class. She really likes a little blonde boy in her class (she seems to have a thing for blondes) and talks about him all week. Ahhh, to be young.

It figures

Look at my Wii person, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:00am this morning, surrounded by my family who is fast asleep. Nice.

Hello, Gorgeous.

As you know we are lovers of all things wood, rusted, chipped, scratched and old. So imagine my joy when I stumbled across this website. Cleveland Art salvages beautiful pieces from factories to use as functional furniture in our home... er, I mean "your home". Anyway, it looks like they have locations in Ohio and California, so if anyone happens to be in the area and wants to pick up this table (I'm sure its light as a feather) for me, that would grrreeeaaattt.
Um Kay?

How do you roll?

Care to join the great debate? Do you prefer to roll your toilet paper roll under or over? I thought Chris and I were alone in our distinct TP preferences, but apparently Cottonelle feels that this is a national question. I hate to admit it, but we have had this discussion several times. Chris is an "over" guy and I am an "under" girl. It looks like he is 83% right. Pffft.

Make your choice here:


Diva Dress Up

Hannah got to play dress up with her best friend Sierra and her little sister, Dakota, this past weekend.

I just love their fashion choices. Of course Hannah went for the angel wings and halo. Sierra wore the much-coveted yellow dress and Dakota went for the straight forward Cinderella ensemble. Of course each girl had to have a crown, necklace, bracelet, ring, and wand and/or purse. Too cute.

Easy Bake Oven... I mean Microwave

One of Hannah's friends gave her an Easy Bake Microwave for Christmas. I was kind of excited to give it a try because the Easy Bake Oven was one of those toys that I longed for as a kid and never received (althoug I can't imagine how since I was an only child and SPOILED). I realize now that it is a "one trick pony" toy in that it just heats up dough with a light bulb, however, I am intrigued by its simplicity (and, who I am kidding, it involves food). Hannah picked the vanilla cake with chocolate icing recipe. She ate the whole thing herself, so from what I tell, she liked it.

Happy New Year!

A happy and healthy 2010 from our family to yours.

We went to the park to try out the red car that Santa gave Hannah for Christmas. She was starting to get the hang of it, but she likes to stick her feet out and use them to move her forward.

Chris was kind enough to take this candid picture clearly showing how Hannah likes to attack me when I least expect it.

And here is the usual result of such an attack. Happy silly new year!
