Early Christmas with the family

Angie & her children were here last weekend for an early Christmas gathering. It was great to see them. All of the girls are growing up way too fast!! I didn't take too many pictures. It's hard to get a 2.5 year old & an 18month old to hold still long enough!!

The 'big' girls had their hands full trying to keep the little ones still long enough for a snap shot.

Amber was giving a "Two for one" deal on the piggyback (or belly) rides!

Hannah with 2 of her new presents: Her pink chair from Uncle Wes & Aunt Brandi & a rubber duck from Mimi. It blows bubbles....a huge hit!

Hannah & her Daddy with Natalie's new toy violin. Hannah loved it & didn't want to give it up. Shh! Don't tell her, but Santa Clause is bringing her one, too. ;-)

Finally, sweet Natalie gets a turn with HER violin!

Do I make her wear a jacket???

So these days, dressing Hannah has become quite the chore. She seems to prefer a diaper & her accessory of choice....either shoes or a hat. Go figure. She wiggles & fusses until sometimes I decide it just isn't worth it to clothe the child. She is perfectly content to run around the house in the bare minimum. I have just one question.... Should I at least make her wear a jacket when we go to the grocery store?? ;-)

Here, she is seizing the opportunity to jump on her mattress when I'm attempting to change the sheet. She obviously chose rain boots as her accessory of the day.

Lock-up your computers! We frequently find her 'surfing' the web when we aren't looking.... once again in a diaper & accessory of choice.

Here, she is putting her babydoll in the bouncey a hat & diaper.

Bubbles, Bubbles, & more Bubbles!!

Hannah is a big fan of bath time. We mention the word & she runs straight to the bathtub. I think it has something to do with all the bubbles. Hannah is more of a 'do-er' than a 'talker' but she loves to say the word BUBBLES!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Several weeks ago we went to a local farm to the pumpkin patch. Here are a few pictures of the day. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hannah went from pumpkin to pumpkin until she found one that she could pick up.

She finally found one small enough. If you look closely, you can see mud on her cheeks.

She might not have been able to pick this pumpkin up but loved posing on it!

Texas trip

Well, I'm slowly catching up from not having a computer so here are a few more pics. Hannah & I flew to Texas to visit my sister & her family a few weeks ago. As always, all the cousins had a great time playing together. Since it was a few weeks before Halloween, we went to the pumpkin patch. Ashley could go with us b/c she was getting certified in scuba diving (pretty impressive for a 16 year old!) but we had lots of fun. The trip was great & I look forward to them coming here in December.

"Natalie's Diner".....what's for diner???

Ashley, Amber, Natalie, & Hannah. Whew! It was a challenge to get the little ones to hold still long enough to snap this shot!

I want THIS pumpkin!

No, Amber. I already picked one out!

Not to be out done....she maybe the smallest, but that didn't stop her from picking the biggest pumpkin!!

Angie, Natalie, & Amber

It's a bird, it's a's a SOCK MONKEY BALLERINA??!!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We took Hannah out for a few pics in her Halloween costume. I've been without a computer for the last few weeks so I'm behind on pics. I will try to get more posted soon.

Rain, rain go away....come back some other day!!!

Well, it has rained just about everyday for the last few weeks. That has kept us inside much more than we are used to. As always, Hannah finds some 'creative' ways to pass the time. She now loves to pull all of her clothes, socks, & shoes out of her drawers. I can't say that I enjoy putting them all back again and again and again! Needless to say, there will be more child safety locks placed. No real news just a few pics.

The clock says 6:54a.m. Hannah is ready for "school" but she seems to be wondering why anyone would be up this early.

When Hannah isn't pulling everything out of drawers, she's pulling everything out of her toy basket so she can sit in it.

Hannah in p.j.'s & her rain boots. Fashion do or fashion don't???

Busy days of summer!

Well, we have had lots to do these last few weeks of summer. Hannah, as always, is quite the helper. She is really into putting things back where they belong. It sure would be nice if this lasted into her teenage years! She is definitely an independent thinker & doer. She doesn't like anyone to help her & melts down if she can't do it herself. (I have noooo idea where she gets that from! ;-) We celebrated Gran's (Lee's mom) & Papa's (my dad's) birthdays. Now, we are welcoming football season. 'Aunt' Ashley & baby Jake came & watched the Alabama game with us this past weekend. I'm sure there will be many more football gatherings this season! ROOOLLLL TIDE! Here are a few pics from the last few weeks.

Here, Hannah has decided she should wear her pumpkin beret while sitting in the sink to brush her teeth. Go figure???

Hannah, baby Jake, & myself getting ready for the game.

'Cruisin vacation'

Well, we just got back from a Disney cruise. Yes, we took Hannah. She had a great time & didn't even mind the 9+ hour ride to Port Canaveral. She loves the water & enjoyed walking around on the top deck where she could feel the wind blow through her few wisps of hair! ;-) I have posted quite a few pics...hope you enjoy.

Hannah enjoying the water.

Do you think I have my hands full???

This pictures really need no explaination. There's never a dull moment at the Campbell house!
