Princess Party

Well as you may know, Hannah had her 6th birthday on Jan. 22nd. We had her birthday party all planned out for Saturday but she woke up the night before with a bad cough and fever, and when we gave her some medicine, it came right back up and she asked "is my party canceled?" So we had to call the friends she invited and see if they could come Tuesday instead because Brady had the day off.
She wanted it to be a princess party, so she asked everyone to dress up and we attempted a castle cake.

She even made sure that Mom and Dad were dressed up.
Happy birthday to our princess! She is growing up so fast and we are so proud of her.

Eli's musical talent

Hannah's not the only one in the family with musical talent. Eli got a recorder from Grandma Lori at the family Christmas party. In this video you can see some of his sweet moves. It's difficult to see the flying spittle, but if you look at his aunt Miranda's reaction you can see her fear of being sprayed.

Piano Practice

This one is for Grandma Shipp, who teaches piano. Hannah has started taking piano lessons this year and we have been amazed at how fast she is picking it up. She loves her teacher, Miss Kendra. Although it is sometimes hard to get her to practice and Debbie has one more thing that she has to get the kids all bundled up and drive across town for, we are glad she wants to do it and are grateful to Lori for basically paying for it (Kendra's daughter dances with her as a trade).

Jonas had his six month doctors appointment this week and weighed in at 20 lbs 15 oz. which is the 92nd percentile for his age! So while he's not quite up to par with his cousin Aubrey (aka 96), we are proud of him. It's a little different for us to have such a big boy because Hannah is very small for her age and Eli is a little below average as well. He is wearing clothes that Eli didn't wear until after he was a year old.

Happy 2009!

We had our own little family party here at home. Hannah wanted it to be a "princess party" so she and Eli made crowns for each of us. We rang in the new year at 8:00 (they didn't know the difference) with some noise makers and confetti.

Hannah also had a shiny gold dollar waiting under her pillow January 1. Dad pulled on the tooth before bed on Dec 30 and it hurt so Hannah decided she didn't want to keep trying. Then when she got a drink the next morning, it popped right out. Luckily, she didn't swallow it. She has now lost all four front teeth before her sixth birthday.
