Our New Crib!

Well, actually it's not ours yet--we're closing in June. I'm very excited about our new house, but it's been a struggle living apart from each other. We don't see each other every weekend, and right now, we're in our longest stretch apart -- 3 weeks! Hannah is really starting to miss her Daddy ...

Yongzhou cuties!

Last year we discovered that a family who lives around the corner has a little girl who is from the same city as Hannah. Alyssa and Hannah are only a year apart, and they've had some fun playdates together ...

Party Pics!!

Tomorrow is Hannah's 4th birthday! Still being the "novice" parent that I am, I was at a loss as what to do, so I decided on a "Chuck E. Cheese" party. Don't laugh! Actually, Hannah was so excited for her party that I knew I did the right thing. All but two of her classmates from preschool came to her party and it turned out to be a total blast.

I'm not good at the "mushy" stuff, so let me just say that Hannah is the most precious gift that God could have given us, and Steve & I feel blessed every day that Hannah is our daughter. She is an incredible little girl who brings so much joy to our family.

A few pics from Christmas ....

Most of these pictures were taken Christmas Eve and Christmas day. I threw in a couple from Hannah's preschool show. She was singing the songs for two weeks and was so excited for the show--however, when she was on stage with all of the parents looking at her, she started crying! She looked terrified the whole time, but she made it through! What a trooper! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!

Here's Hannah with her new kitty (Cami). Cami joined the family yesterday and is quickly becoming "best buddies" with Hannah. :)

Okay, I'm not sure if I have any visitors anymore, but I thought I'd give a quick update (I think Nikki and Stef still stop by once in awhile!)

Here's a picture of my favorite girl and my favorite guy! This was taken on the Saturday after Thanksgiving when we went to the German Christmas market in downtown Chicago. It was lots of fun--and Steve and I enjoyed the hot spiced wine!

Here are a couple of pictures taken during "fall clean-up" day -- as you can see, Hannah is as cute as ever. :)

Oh, and one last picture. Steve had mentioned that he wanted to get me a special ring for our 10-year anniversary. Well, last weekend he took me out and bought me this!! The picture doesn't do it justice -- it is quite stunning! He's decided to torture me, though--he won't let me wear it until Christmas! (I guess the huge price tag qualifies this gift as a "combination" anniversary/Christmas present!)
