The blue dress is one that Chet and I picked up in Cozumel, Mexico about two years ago for the little girl that we would someday have. I love how it compliments her blue eyes!
Chet is out of town tonight speaking in California at a ProLife Organization Banquet. Check out his blog in the next few days to see how it goes (www.chetmcdoniel.com). Hannah and I are enjoying a quiet evening at home and some great girl bonding time!

We used her little pool for the first time this afternoon. She loved splashing around and playing with the toys. This girl loves to be outdoors!
Radar and Hannah bonding after our swim. He couldn't figure out why we would voluntarily be in a pool of water and would not come any further outside than this:

We also got a chance to see our friend, Rusty Tugman, and meet his family. I led worship at a conference where Rusty spoke, and we learned then that we would be in Walt Disney World at the same time.
So, I know what you're thinking..."get on with the pictures"...well, here we go. Hannah started the day in a princess mood.
Even though we slept pretty late in order to be ready for the late party, Hannah still showed us all how easy it is to fall asleep.
Finally, while we never found Peter Pan, we did see Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. We thought our Tinkerbell made for a perfect shot with the villains from Peter Pan.

While we were in a store at Magic Kingdom, Joni pulled a Tinkerbell doll down for Hannah and showed it to her. Hannah started laughing loudly and reached for the doll. Joni handed it to her, and she immediately cluched it to her chest. Joni told her she had to "ask Daddy." I leaned down next to her, and she reached up with both hands and grabbed my face. She stuck out her bottom lip and cooed. I decided then and there that I'm in trouble...she already knows how to "play" me at 6 months old. Did she get her way? I'll let the picture say it all.
We watched Spectromagic, and again, Hannah was enthralled. You can't see in the picture, but Mr. Smee (with lights all over his costume) is standing right in front Hannah dancing around.
We're headed to Magic Kingdom today and staying for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party tonight, where Hannah will be dressed like Tinkerbell. Watch out Peter Pan, here we come!

After our day at Animal Kingdom, we met up with some friends and had dinner at Ohana, which is in Disney's Polynesian Resort. Joni packed a wonderful "Polynesian" outfit for Hannah, and in this picture, she looks like she fits in well with the theme. Maybe this will have to be where we go next. :)
While it was a HOT day, we had a great time. This girl is all about the hats...so, I'll leave you with more of Hannah getting into the Disney spirit.

Then, we walked over to Crystal Palace to have breakfast with Pooh Bear, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore. We were curious to see how Hannah would react to the characters. She has a Piglet doll that she loves to play with, and Piglet was her first encounter with a Disney World character.
We also rode several rides, and by far, her favorite was "it's a small world." Joni and I decided we could ride that all day long just to watch her expression. It was too dark to get a good picture, though. All-in-all, Magic Kingdom was a big hit with Hannah...and Mom and Dad loved it, too, of course!

We are all exhausted, and heading to bed as soon as we can. Tomorrow, we visit Magic Kingdom and we eat with Pooh Bear and friends. Hannah's favorite stuffed toy is a Piglet doll from the Pooh Bear stories. We can't wait to see her reaction to "the real thing."
