Christmas Singing

Abigail had her second time to sing in church this past Sunday evening, December 14. She did much better than last time. I have to admit, I did resort to bribery. Mr. Joe had given Abigail a piece of candy before church. I told her she couldn't eat it until after she sang. I encouraged her to stand nicely and try to sing and she did! I think it was more than just the candy keeping her there. Well, I have tried to download the performance video, but one was too big to post and the other was taking forever to load, so I will show the pics and try again tomorrow.

Sister Love

As the girls keep growing, they seem to grow to love each other more and play with each other more. Today, as I was getting lunch ready, I realized they weren't around me and Seth and I went searching. I found Hannah trying to sit on Abigail and both were just giggling! Then Hannah laid down and gave Abigail a hug. It was so sweet. This is not the first time Hannah has tried to sit on someone. She loves when Shawn and I are in on the floor to come and sit on us. Many times she has even tried to sit on Shawn's head! Silly girl. I also have to include my little nurturing Hannah, trying to make sure that Seth has his pacifier.

Early Christmas

When Mimi and Baba came for Thanksgiving, they brought an early Christmas present for the girls, their first real swingset. All the adults got to spend the week putting it together. It looks great and the girls enjoy playing on it outside. Hannah loves to slide and is already trying to climb the ladder by herself. I stand behind her, but really she does all the climbing. Abigail loves the seesaw swing (I guess that's what you call it). She is still trying to get the hang of making the yellow bar push and pull to make it go, but for now likes for me to push her. Sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge to keep an eye on both girls at the same time. I keep trying to swing with Hannah on my lap but she doesn't enjoy swinging. I guess she can't move around enough.

Me, too!

Hannah likes to do everything that big sister does, including using the little potty seat. She has gone in to their bathroom many times trying to sit on the potty (with clothes on). There was one time that I took her diaper off and she did actually potty! Well, I had to capture her curiosity on camera because as you know, Abigail got her picture taken when she went potty for the first time. The picture of her laying down is actually Hannah not wanting to leave the bathroom.

Oops! A lost Thanksgiving moment

I was looking over my pictures from my camera when I came across these photos from Thanksgiving. I had to include them because it shows Shawn helping in the kitchen! I have to tease him because this is not his usually territory, except when the dinner bell rings. He is helping Abigail make haystacks. We opted for sprinkles instead of M&M's. She got a little carried away with some.

Booboo Baby Again

My little adventurer, Hannah, had another close call on Saturday. We had been decorating the sanctuary at the church and the girls were with me. I had to go upstairs to the soundbooth to create our slides for Sunday morning and I brought the girls with me, shut the doors and put on a video. I thought Hannah was watching the video (I should have known better, my little wiggle-worm!) but she wanted to come up the one step to see Mommy. Well, she missed the step and hit on her left eye and found the sharp edge of something sticking out by the step. I remember praying to God that night thanking Him for sparing her eye! God is good. Here's the pics of my booboo baby. And yes, she was smiling even a few minutes after falling!

10th Anniversary Carnival

Abigail and Hannah's doctor had a special 10th Anniversary carnival this past Saturday. It was a lot of fun. There was a clown and many different animals, cotton candy (my favorite, too!), a band, jump houses, face painting, crafts and free books. It started out sunny, but the wind began to blow and clouds moved in, so we didn't stay too long outside. I think the girls enjoyed it. The animals were both their favorites.
