Say Cheese!

Santa was good to me (see above) I got a new lens... a 50mm! So pumped as this lens although tricky takes unbelievable pics! So I decided to try it out on my kids...of course!

Oh blue eyes...actually some what blue/gray these days!

Can you tell where we are yet?? What room of the house rather?

So cute, Ollie got a kids Camelpak from Aunt Sarah for Christmas, needless to say he has been well hydrated lately!

Not sure what was so funny, they are all about entertaining each other these days!

So very...

hydrated! Thanks Aunt Sarah, what a fun gift! Thanks Santa Matt for a great new lens to capture moments like the bathroom!

Ollie's first school program...

Ollie has his first school program this past week at school. The kids in his class were so cute! Most of them (although Lainey doesn't look like it) had a great time. They sang Jingle bells with musical instruments!

Here is Ollie's pal, Jordan, rocking it out, so cute!

Then they sang "I'm getting nothin' for Christmas!" Started the song with much pouting, so funny!

More pouting!

It was a fun evening, hard to believe he's old enough to have a "performance!" We are enjoying the holiday time and are looking forward to our big Christmas break real soon!

Christmas parade collage...

It's been a while since I've put up a collage! We went to the GSO Christmas parade this past Saturday with our neighbors. Ollie and Molly had a blast, ate more candy than should have been allowed and even got to see Santa. SC wasn't real sure about all the loud noise but she was glad to keep an eye on her favorite babies, Ben and Jack, who were wearing Christmas matching outfits! It was a fun day!

Christmas card outtakes...

Merry, Merry!!! I took the kids over to Bicentennial Gardens the other day for a "photo session." Here are a few of the pics that did not make the cut. Note to self, although the candy canes where cute and Christmasy, they made a giant sticky mess! Wow, can Ollie make some funny faces!

The Halloween Journey...

Greetings! Happy Weekend...we've just finished a very long week in the Hannam household...more on that in a minute. Our Halloween journey was a super fun one. It started a few weeks ago when Grandma Cheryl (who SC now calls "Maw Maw") came down for a visit. The kids put on thier costumes for a little preview. At that point Olls was planning on going as Batman. Fast forward 3 weeks to our neighborhood Halloween party which was this past Sunday afternoon (have I mentioned lately how much I love our neighborhood?) Ollie decided the size 7 (from a consignment sale) Batman was just too uncomfortable in the chest area. So last minute costume change to a "Virginia Tech Cowboy." Sarah Claire woke up on Sunday from her nap with a slight fever, so she did not make it to the party. Everybody was feeling good on Monday so off to school the tiger and the cowboy headed. We went trick or treating with our neighbors that night, got loads of candy and had a great time. I made another Animoto video highlighting these oh so fun events you can see it here.

Monday night, sweet baby girl woke up coughing, a lot in the middle of the night. So I decided to keep her (and her brother for moral support) home from school and take a trip to visit our doctor. Poor baby had "walking pneumonia" yes, so crazy. Thankfully, the dr. said it sounds worse (sounds horrible) than it really is. So she was put on the baby version of Z pack and told to rest and heal. Maw Maw thankfully came down to our rescue to take care of the sick patient while we went to work. It has been an eventful week with long nights and reactions to the meds in a throw upy kind of way. This picture was taken yesterday. But she is on the mend. She was much better today and we look forward to a full recovery over the weekend. Feeling thankful tonight for healing and the Great Healer!

Go Hokies!!!

Ben and Julie

Matt and Whitney

With "Miami Vice" guy at the tailgate! (might have had to be there!)

My very first cheek turkey (Hokie.)

We had a blast this weekend in Virgina. We made the trip on Friday to let Olls and SC stay with the Gramps for the night and day and Matt and I headed to Blacksburg to go the Virginia Tech game on Saturday. We tailgated and enjoyed being together, the weather was absolutely beautiful. Guess we are officially Hokie fans after all these years of going to games with Professor Hannam!

Mountain Glory Weekend!

Untitled Project

So we've been busy beavers around here this fall. But much fun has been had for all parties involved. I heard about Animoto at school today and thought I would try it out. So here is a highlight video of our trip to the mountains a few weeks ago with my parents! (you must click where it says, "Untitled Project"...guess I missed the memo about naming it!)

Happy fall!
