It's "Snowman!"

That's what Hannah said this morning, when I told her to look outside because it was snowing! We ventured out this morning when it first started, not thinking that it would even stick since it was 70 degrees yesterday. By lunch, it had started accumulating. I couldn't wait for Hannah to wake up from her nap so we could go play outside! This is the first time she has been able to play in the snow. It has only snowed two other times in her short, little life so far. The first time was the day she was born and the second time, we were not prepared for it!

She was unsure whether she wanted to venture off the porch at first. But, eventually, she took my hand and commanded walk! We definitely had a blast (and so did the dogs!)!

Merry Christmas!

My favorite pic!

Christmas in West Texas

We started celebrating Christmas early with a trip to Lubbock this weekend to see my grandparents. Hannah loved getting to know her great-grandparents and especially bossing them around (this is where my family points out that she is bossy like I was, especially with my Grandpa!).

Proof that my child actually does smile, even if I can't ever capture it!
"Wow! How did you know that is just what I wanted?!"

We knew it would happen...

Hannah has decided it is fun to dress up Radar. We have been waiting for it to happen! It started this week with Mardi Gras beads. I am sure as she gets older, we will be seeing the dog in a dress riding in the doll stroller.

We also set up Hannah's "big girl" room this week. We found her this great bed at IKEA that is twin size bed, but is only 10 inches off the floor. With her Sneed legs, a toddler size bed wouldn't last long, so we were so excited to find this one! We've let Hannah pick which bed she wanted to sleep in the last few nights, and she picked the "big girl" one tonight!

Sitting on her new bed with her babies. I'll post more pictures of the finished room later!

Christmas Sheep

Last night, Hannah had her Christmas program at school. The kids in her class were the sheep and cows in the stable. Hannah wasn't sure what to think of the crowd. She kept looking at us like, "What are you doing here at school?"
Love the tail!
