In her own words continued

Happy Father's Day to 2 very special dads!  Hannah made Jason a Father's Day card at Mother's Day Out this week and it was hilarious and great to read her words for her daddy.

If you can't read the above picture, here were Hananh's responses:
What is your daddy's name: Jason (silly bunnie)
What does your daddy do for fun: he watches Avengers
What does your daddy do at work: writes letters
What are his favorite things to eat: cereal
What does he like to drink: Coke
How old is Daddy: he is older than our Vibe and Camry
Where did you and Daddy meet: After I came out of mommy's belly and I crawled out of my bed
How tall is Daddy: as tall as mommy
What is Daddy's hair like: it's brown like mine
How much does he weigh: heavy as a tree
What makes Daddy the best: he tucks me into bed
What is your favorite thing to play with Daddy: play tickling
How long have you known Daddy: 100 days

 This was the first picture that was taken of Jason on the day he became a daddy to Hannah.  He is a wonderful Daddy and we are both so thankful for him!  He is by far the favored parent for Hannah to play with as he is fun, imaginative, patient, and will rough house with Hannah.  She is such a blessed little girl to have Jason for a daddy!
Happy Father's Day to my dad too!  He is the most wonderful dad that I could have ever asked for and not a day goes by when I am not thankful for him!  This isn't a picture of me with my dad, but the first one I got of him after Hannah was born.  I love you Dad and I am so thankful for you!

And, today is also my mom's birthday!  Happy happy birthday Mom!  I love you so much and I am so thankful for you today and always!  And, since I was looking through old pictures of Hannah, I thought I would post an old one but a good one of Hannah and her Gramma when she was about 4 months old.  We love you and wish you the most wonderful birthday today.

Happy Birthday Jason!

While Jason and Hannah's birthdays are back to back I never want to skip over wishing my sweet husband a very happy birthday!
He is an amazing husband, wonderful father, devoted worker, trusted friend, and so much more!  We are so thankful for Jason and for another year of life.
Hannah would not be who she is today without her daddy.  She loves him to the moon and back and absolutely loves to play with him.  He is by far the favored play partner for Hannah (I'm just not that fun!) and they enjoy a common taste for TV shows, and playing outside together. 
 And...he's silly!  Hannah clearly gets her looks and her silliness from Jason.  And, I would have it NO other way.  These two constantly crack me up and crack each other up.
So, Happy Happy Birthday Jason!  We love you so much and are so thankful for you today and everyday!

HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY!

To our sweet Hannah on her fifth birthday.

Hannah,
I can't believe that you are 5 years old today!  5 years ago, we never could have imagined how wonderful life was going to be with you.  And now, we are so blessed by your sweet smile and sweeter spirit.  You bring us joy every day and are constantly making us laugh.  You are learning so much so quickly and are so curious about everything.  You are a quiet listener and processer and are always thinking about what is going on around you and you ask tons of questions to better understand people, things, and situations.
You love to serve your family and others are are always looking for ways to be helpful around the house.  You are a sweet friend who loves to play with others.  You have a huge imagination and especially love to play with your ponies.  You love to tell stories about your ponies too.
And, you are silly!  You constantly have funny and silly things to say to us and to others.  You especially like to make your daddy laugh.  You enjoy rough housing with your daddy and always enjoy a good tickling. 
You are a home body who just enjoys staying at home and playing.  You have a big sweet tooth and especially love frozen yogurt.  You love anything and everything pink and would wear a dress or skirt everyday of your life.  You are a true girly girl!
What makes me most joyful though is your growing love and knowledge of God.  You talk to us often about how much you love God.  You pray often and with the bold faith of a child.  We continue to pray for you, sweet Hannah.  That you would know and trust God with your whole heart and life.  Your daddy and I are so deeply in love with you and the joy you have brought to us.  I still can't believe that you will start school this fall, but I know that it is going to be awesome. 
Happy happy birthday, Hannah.  What a great 5 years this has been!
Love,
Mom

Preschool Graduation...Already?!?!

Our sweet Hannah had her preschool graduation from Mother's Day Out last Thursday.  The kids were so cute as they sang for all the parents.  The teachers presented each child with their own bible and a diploma.  Hannah loved receiving her bible and has carried it around for days.  It is such a blessing that she finds such joy in God's word!
Hannah with her sweet friend, David right next to her.





Hannah has had 2 wonderful teachers this year that have helped her find joy in school and learning.  I am thankful to God for the time and effort they have both given to Hannah.


I love these two.  Such sweet friends.


What a joy it was on Thursday to celebrate this year of preschool for Hannah.  We are blessed indeed!

Spring

Spring is in full bloom here in Texas and we are enjoying every second of it.  We have enjoyed many walks outside and just enjoyed the beautiful weather together.  We took our annual bluebonnet pictures this year and Hannah was overjoyed to wear the beautiful dress that her Aunt Laura made for her last summer.  It is really unbelievable to see how much these kids have grown over the past few years.  I love that Hannah enjoys taking pictures now and she is becoming quite photogenic!  I am sure I am biased, but the beauty of her sweet heart shows all over her face!














Just for fun, here are the past years of photos:

See how far we have come from Year 1?!  I absolutely LOVE this picture of sweet Kelly with Hannah and Joe...The kids faces are priceless!!!
