Princess Tea Parties

Every once in awhile, I get the "itch" to do something creative. With Chet out of town this last weekend, I took the opportunity to work on Hannah's room. We put together her "big girl" room about a year ago, but it was definitely still a baby's room just without the crib. Now that she is older, it was time to add more of her personality (and storage) to the room.

Hannah and I had a lot of fun doing this project together. We headed to IKEA after dropping Daddy off at the airport and picked up the bookshelves and curtains. Everything else is stuff we had around the house or already in her room. I put together the bookshelves and hung the curtains up while she was at school. As soon as she walked in and saw it, she said in amazement, "Wow!" Every time we'd add another touch she'd exclaim, "So beautiful!"

As you can see, Hannah loves her room! She loves cooking dinner for her babies (especially in her princess dresses).

We had a great weekend! Hannah loved getting to trick-or-"tweat" and learned very quickly how it worked. We have been talking about it for a few weeks getting her ready for the big day. When asked, "What happens when you say 'trick-or-treat'?" She'll tell you, "You get chocolate!" That's my girl!

We started our weekend at Boo at the Zoo at the Fort Worth Zoo. Hannah decided to be a fairy that day.

She loves the carousel!

On Halloween night, we went to Trunk-or-Treat at my parents' church. Hannah decided to be Alice in Wonderland that night. After a practice round with Mamaw, Hannah took off like a pro going up to everyone and holding open her bag. By the end of the night, her bag was so full she couldn't hold it up anymore! She definitely had a blast!
