Halloween 2012

Happy Halloween! It's the year of the ninja... Hannah style.

Don't get me started on those knives. Oy vey smear! Mamma Bear wanted Hannah to be a leopard this year, a cute cuddly leopard. But noooooo, Grandma convinced Hannah that ninja was the way to go. What Grandma failed to realize is that ninjas have WEAPONS. So cue the knives. Keep your fingers crossed that these knives do not end up being evidence in some type of crime.

Isn't she the cutest ninja ya ever did see?

Flower Girl Debut

Last month, Hannah had the great honor to be a flower girl in Colby & Melissa's wedding in New Jersey. It was a weekend of a lot of firsts - so here are some highlights:

First time wearing "big girl" makeup.

First time getting her hair done.

First time wearing earrings other than the ones she was pierced in.

First time in a limo!

Check out that grin when she found out that she was going to the venue in a limo BY HERSELF.

First time being in a wedding (of course).

First time brandishing a weapon at a wedding. (Each of the groomsmen got a gun/cane and one of them was foolish enough to let Hannah hold it).

The first time that I have ever seen Hannah so focused on a task. She dropped those petals and booked it down the aisle.

The beautiful bride, Melissa and stunning mother-of-the-bride, Aunt Jackie.

The happy couple.

First time Hannah got to dance with her cousin, Greyson.

And the first time that Mommy & Daddy got to party at a wedding without having to worry about Hannah or how to get home.

Happy Hilton Head!

For my birthday this year, Chris & Hannah took me to Hilton Head. It was really nice to get away to a place we had yet to explore. :-)

Dear Universe,

Thank you for reminding me that within the blink of an eye, you can pull the rug from out from under me and leave me speechless.

Here's to brushing yourself off and taking it one day at a time.
