Christmas with Hannah

Well, Santa came to our house! Christmas was a blast for Hannah this year. Christmas Eve was spent with her Nana, Grandy, Bubba, cousins Carlee, Allie, Raegan and Aunt Tracy and David. We got smart this year and let all of the kiddos take turns opening all of their presents first and then got to ours. :) They had so much fun!

Christmas morning Hannah slept in til after 8:30! When I brought her downstairs and walked her over to the tree she just stood there staring at everything in awe. It was so cute! It didn't take her long to start tearing through everything though and checking it out!

Here are a few pics of her Christmas morning~

ETA: internet not working good so more to come later! :)

Hannah n Santa

Chad and I took Hannah to see Santa this past Tuesday night at the mall. We went on a weeknight thinking we'd beat the crowd but I think everyone else had that same idea as well! We waited for almost an hour to see the jolly old man himself. We even made a few friends during our wait! :)

Hannah had a blast playing with all of the kids in line and was in such a wonderful mood until it was her turn.....

Once I went up there with her she calmed down long enough to somewhat look at the camera. I was not prepared to be IN the picture though- I thought I was safe BEHIND the camera! :)

*sigh* perhaps next year she'll think Santa is cool :)

It has been my mission the past couple of weeks to get a good picture of Hannah for our Christmas cards. It has been a very long journey to say the least. This is what I had gotten- keep in mind my "backdrop" was wayyyyy far to my left. ;)

After a trip to the annual Christmas parade this past Saturday (it was a looong two hours), we came home with a huge bag filled with candy much to Hannah's delight. She took a real interest in the smarties so I thought I'd use it to my advantage. I decided to try just one more time to get her to sit still so I took her out to my "studio" in the garage and gave her some smarties. Holy cow- she sat there!! When she'd run out I'd toss a few more and it worked like a charm. I happened to get these two shots that I'm quite happy with. :)

This means I might just have my Christmas cards done in the near future- coming to a mailbox near you! :)
