This And That

I don't have much to report right now.  We have been enjoying the beautiful weather and have spent a lot of time outside.  We went to a fun play date on Friday and Hannah got to feed some chickens and turkeys.  The  kids had a blast running around outside.  They found a lot of things that kept them entertained.

Hannah is wearing the perfect attire to play outside with the chickens.....princess dress and Flemnco shoes.  Why not?

Hannah loves to watch "The Voice" with us and every night she asks if the singers are on.  She likes all the performers, but she is just as fascinated with CeeLo Green.  She says "Let's see what that man is wearing tonight".  The curly wig last week has been her favorite and she couldn't stop laughing.  Most nights she falls asleep after watching a couple of singers.
Hannah thinks these pictures are really funny too and wants to look at them all the time
Slowly her head went down
Hannah has been so funny lately and I have been doing a terrible job at writing down some of the things she says.  Every time she cracks me up I think that I am going to remember what she said, because it was so funny, but then I forget by the next day.  I do remember what she said after putting one of her headbands on my head (and she said this in a really sweet voice) "Awwww sweetest thing ever".  Where does she get this from?

What Hannah Wants For Christmas

Several weeks ago Hannah started to throw a tantrum at the Disney store, because she wanted a bunch of things that she couldn't have.  I told her that she can start a christmas list and she can ask Santa for these things.  She was very excited (I am surprised she went for that) and I gave her a piece of paper and a pen and she started to "write" down the things she would like from the Disney store.  This has worked really well for us and every time Hannah wants something now she asks for her wish list (now I carry a notepad and a pen in my purse).  She will lay down on the ground (and yes she has done this at Wal-Mart a few times) to draw a picture of what she wants.  The other day I asked her if she remembers what is on her christmas list and she said: "I want a table cloth, a monkey statue and pizza".  Sometimes I really do wonder where she gets her imagination from!!!!!

Pumpkin Patch and Halloween

We enjoyed a great morning at the pumpkin patch with some friends.  Actually it was called Farmland Adventure and it was just that, because we didn't even get a pumpkin.  Hannah really enjoyed riding the ponies. We got our money's worth just by riding the ponies.
We fed some goats
Followed Hannah through the corn maze
Played in the corn pit
And filled our boots with corn
And for the grand finale we watched the pig races.....it was quite entertaining
We went to Matt and Casey's Halloween party
On Halloween night we went over to Jenny and Dave's for a pre-trick-or-treating dinner and then went down the street with the kiddos to trick or treat.
These three were just so cute going up to the doors together
We made it back home on time to still catch a lot of the other kids trick or treating.  Hannah really enjoyed handing out the candy too.
