Trunk or Treat!

We had a fun Halloween last week Trunk or Treating at the church! Everyone backed up their cars into a circle in the parking lot! There was face painting and some other fun games for the kids. We decorated our car with our carved pumpkin and toilet paper ghosts that Hannah and I made together! As you can see, Leah spent lots of time on Brian's shoulders that night - Brian didn't know that Leah took a dum dum before placing her on his shoulders...she had opened the wrapper and ate the whole thing! As you can imagine, Brian's hair was naturally "gelled" on top!!! It was so funny. We had a great time!

Pumpkin Carving Fun!

We had our friends come over last night(John and Heather-they live in our complex) to carve pumpkins with us and have pumpkin chili! John made awesome cornbread! Oh, and I'm sorry there isn't a picture with me in it! I guess I was the photographer that night. Anyway, Brian made an awesome "bat cat" (as Hannah would call it). The girls weren't really involved since Hannah thought the insides were yucky and we wouldn't let her use a knife! :) Nonetheless, we had lots of fun! I think Hannah's in love with John. :)

Leah with the fish!

I forgot to add this classic picture of Leah. This is what she does....she point to things and excitedly babbles about that thing! She totally looks you in the eye and looks very seriously excited during the babbling. So funny!

Zoo Boo!

The Houston Zoo does a "Zoo Boo" event all Halloween month on the weekends. You bring your kids to the zoo with Halloween costumes on. They have numerous booths with stickers/candy/little prizes, a pumpkin patch(one with Hannah and Leah sitting on a haystack-it was the best picture we took, i promise!), a bat cave with pirates, monster mash parade, and more that I can't think of right now. Hannah did surprisingly well with some of the big kid games. Hannah's favorite part was the monster mash parade/dance party! Hannah enjoyed seeing all of the kids dressed in Halloween costumes! We also went to a story time in the butterfly theater and Hannah got to pet a lizard! Our last place we visited was the aquarium where both Leah and Hannah crawled together through a fish tank! This was the first time Leah was brave enough to do it with her sister! Brian was able to come with us, which made it 100 times more enjoyable for the girls! It was a fun morning to say the least.

Note: Leah is tinkerbell and Hannah is a princess.....next week, Leah will wear her pumpkin and hat costume I made her a month ago, and I'm just finishing up on Hannah's witch costume. I'll post more pictures in a week or two with their "real" costumes on

Hannah Starts Dance!

Hannah just started dance classes weekly on Fridays just yesterday! This is with Tricia Campbell who is in a ward in Pearland. She does a great job, and Hannah loves it! She especially loves the butterfly stretching part, because her teacher asks each girl what color their butterfly is, and where the butterfly is going! They dance like different animals and do little songs like "I'm a little teapot". They're starting first and second positions and tapping with their toes pointed in front of them: ballet.

Hallelujah, my girls are starting to play together!

I found Hannah and Leah like this coming out of my room the other day...I am so glad that it has come to the point where I don't have to fear for Leah's life anymore when I leave the room! :) Their recent favorite things to do together is play with babies, play in forts, read together, dance together, etc. It's nice to not really be in the baby stage anymore (for the most part). I love my little family!

We all went to the downtown aquarium last Saturday, the 30th I believe. It was amazing....the pictures don't do it justice! We had lots of fun, though, especially with daddy!!! There were white tigers at the end of the exhibit. A big surprise for us! Both Leah and Hannah had a blast looking at all of the fish and sharks and even an alligator!

18 Months Later.....

Hi Family and Friends! Lisa Hall just sent me her family blog, and it made me realize that I need to update ours! All of the pictures and information are updated now! This post is about our daughters' birthdays last month (June 23rd-Leah, and June 26th-Hannah). We celebrated it, though, in AZ early in June. My DAD made this beautiful cake, and Hannah loved the princess theme! My mom is awesome for helping me with the girls' party!!! It was just with my parents and siblings.
