Hello Friends! There will be no excuses as to why this is so long in the making! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving....the Smith family sure did. It is always a challenge to eat 2 Thanksgiving meals in one day! They were spread out better this year, so that helped! We had a lot of fun with family! I don't know where to start writing so I will just start with the pictures & comments :)
Wow, I think she is getting more beautiful every day! It is hard to believe she is 7 months old! I want her to stay little....Hannah is growing up fast enough! I was worried before Sadie was born because Hannah was barely talking in 2 word phrases. No need to worry....now she is talking in sentences, paragraphs, and gets a little bossy from time to time :)! She is becoming my best little helper! I love it when I ask her to do something and she says "Sure I will Mommy!" It is so cute!
Hannah really does not like to get dirty unless it is on her terms! She had no idea what this pumpkin adventure would involve!
Seriously, she was not too happy about this! But in a way that only Daddy can....he convinced her it would be fun!
Sadie is just chillin' watching Daddy and Sister get dirty. She did find her thumb! And while it is cute for a picture or 2, we will not let her suck on it with us around!
Now the fun part.....we are going to paint Jack. If you haven't noticed...there is not much that we do that is normal! But we are fun!!!
Doing a little painting of Hannah too...and Daddy's knee :)! This is the way 2 yr olds paint apparently...everything nearby gets a coat too!
Supposedly the glitter is Jack's hair! Poor Jack. He had no idea a 2 yr old was in control of his fashion!!! But he is definitely original wouldn't you say?
Showing off her sitting up skills! The boppy is just there for Mommy's piece of mind....she doesn't need it!
On to my niece's birthday party! It was a dress up party! Here is Bailey (my niece) singing some Hannah Montana!
Hannah has no idea that you eat a hot dog in a bun! I guess I should buy some and let her practice! She just took the hot dog out, took a bite, and put it back in the bun! I think the bun was just a holder in her mind..cute though!
Sheer Joy!!!!Bailey's reaction for her parents present.......Hannah Montana tickets for the next day in San Antonio!! Oh, and the Jonas brothers or boys will be there too! Apparently, Bailey and Mamere and Liz think they are pretty cute!
Jake performing Kiley's baptism in the river....burr! (Kiley dunked herself before the baptism to get ready for the temperature of the water....only a 9 yr old would do that :) )
After the baptism, Kiley had her first communion and received a study bible from her parents to celebrate!
Hannah watching the baptism....wanting to get in the water or at least near it! No one would let her.....seriously.....what good is that much water if you can not play in it!
The after party....Hannah loves swinging so much she was even willing to get in the baby swing that swings at a diagonal!
Sadie could not handle the after party and went straight to sleep! She was so good...especially for being completely off schedule!
Apparently Sadie is doing the tiger here at cousin Lincoln! She is making such a funny face. These were our first Unger family photos in a long time. It is a little challenging with 3 kids that are 3 and under. Thank you Liz for your skills and patience!
If only they would both smile and look at the camera at the same time! There was quite the audience in the back .....so it was a little distracting :)
I love this picture! It is hilarious! They are ALL smiling......at the same time....just at different people! Pretty cute! We have the Smith family photo shoot in December so we will give it another go! One thing we do not lack in this family is pictures....I love them....I love taking them....I love looking at them....so I have taken about 5000 since Sadie was born. Crazy!!!! Thank goodness for digital cameras....you can take all you want and edit/delete later!!!
This is across the street from the Unger house just a couple hours later!!! Crazy. Needless to say these San Antonionians were not that prepared for all the white snow! But what a memory it was.
A funny Hannah story....while Jacob and I were talking in the living room, Hannah walked up to us and said, "Guys stay here (with her hand out in the stop signal) I'm just going to check my me-mail! ok?" Hilarious!!! She has also mastered escaping from the crib.....so I guess a big girl bed is coming next :(!!
Have a wonderful week! Good News...I am 90% done Christmas shopping! That is a first for me...I am excited!! Just a few more gifts to finish up and I am ready to wrap!!
