Latest Happenings

Sorry I haven't updated you all lately! Jeremy has the computer I put all our pictures on so I can't download any pictures! He has been gone since the 10th and doesn't come home until the 28th. He is out looking for naughty hunters!

Well since I don't have any pictures I thought I would tell you about our lives lately!

Kristi has been working 10 hour+ days for the last three weeks. It is kind of good Jeremy has been gone otherwise I think he would miss his wife way to much. Plus dinner would never be on the table and then he would be really sad :)

I have been training people at work and luckily all of them are here now and soon everyone will be up to speed. Then I can go back to hopefully working only 8+ hour days :)

Hannah is getting cuter every day. She does miss spending time with mom & dad but she has adjusted well. Plus, she gets to do way cool things with her nanny & her kids! Today they walked around Ward Lake. Hannah, of course, collected about 1 million sticks on her way.

They also visit the old folk’s home several times a week. One day Hannah ran down the hall into a ladies room. When her nanny got to her she was pointing at an old lady sleeping. Hannah kept saying, "nigh, nigh" meanwhile pointing at the poor sleeping lady.

Hannah is talking up a storm. She can repeat pretty much anything you say. She amazes me with her creativity & humor! The other day I showed her a pair of her pants and she said, "Oooo Cute!"

She sure has an imagination! Today she was eating a strawberry but wanted the top off. So I pulled the top off and a little of the inside came off. She pointed at it and said “elephant.” I was confused. I looked down at it and sure enough it semi-resembled an elephant!

She also has become quite the prayer warrior. Every time we pray she always has her list of people/things she wants to pray for. Last night she wanted to pray for her socks & nose! Every day she makes sure we pray for "gammas owie & dada on da boat."

She also loves to read books. She will sit down with a book and read away. Most of the time she just babbles as fast as can be but every now and then I catch a word or two.

Hannah's favorite foods include: tomatoes, broccoli, noodles, salad, strawberries, yogurt, and of course ice cream (I keam is how she says it).

She does not like watermelon, peas, green beans or corn.

Hannah really loves to sing! Everyday on the drive to work we sing multiple songs. Everything from "The Wheels on the Bus," to "This little light of mine." We also made up a song similar to the kid’s song "Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Hallelujah". It is called "Hannah Lou, Hannah Lou, Hannah Lou" then Hannah yells, "Paise ye da Lord!" It is super cute!

Hannah loves to dip her food in anything she can get. Ketchup, ranch, bbq sauce, yogurt etc. She will sit there and say, "moe dip, moe dip." Over and over till you get her some dip!

Hannah is definitely her father's child. She would spend ALL day outside if we let her. She grabs her bucket and proceeds to fill it with whatever treasures she finds. The other day we spent 2.5 hours playing on the beach. We filled her bucket with fish, baby star fish, hermit crabs, rocks, dead baby Dungeness crabs, beach glass and more! We had so much fun exploring & splashing in the tide pools.

I really have to keep a close eye on Hannah these days. She is SOOO independent and will just take off. The other day I was watering plants in my greenhouse. Hannah was collecting sticks. The next thing I know she had made it down the hill and was running around on the beach. Thankfully her trusty dog Shylo was herding her back toward me.

Hannah's favorite movie right now is Cinderella. She will grab the box and say, "Cinderellie tune." She will watch almost the entire thing!

She loves to help in the greenhouse. Before daddy left he taught her how to pick lettuce. The other day I caught her picking lettuce and feeding it to the dogs!

Hannah also decided she wants to wear panties! So we went to Wal-mart & she picked out her own panties. Of course they were Cinderella panties! The first time I put them on she was SOOOO excited. She screamed "YEAH PANTIES!!" Then she ran to the mirror to admire her panties. She wants to wear them everyday but she has yet to get the concept that she needs to go pee-pee in the potty when wearing them. She slowly is getting it. The other day she told me she had to go potty but then wouldn't sit on the potty. Instead she just pee'd in her panties. She was so sad when I made her take them off and put on a diaper. She cried, “no diepee.” I don't think she is quite ready for potty training. Plus, our life is a little too wild right now to begin that.

So that is about all I have for now! May the Lord Bless you!!!

Hey Kristi - I dropped by for a minute to check up on you guys---my goodness what a cute family! Looks like you're having a lot of fun...I miss seeing you guys at church and do get updates on CPCC periodically. We're camping out for the summer...we'll see where the Lord leads after that. Blessings to you all!
