So Hannah has really bad allergies, courtesy of her dad. She has been struggling lately with being congested, especially at night time. The other night when we put her to bed, I kept hearing her get up and go to the bathroom to get a tissue. Before I went to bed, I went in to check on her, this is what I saw!

For those of you who know me, you know that I love to be creative. Most of the time that involves sewing things for my sweet Hannah. Since I don't have much time to sew during the school year, I always sew double time during the summer. For the past couple of years, I have been making Hannah some Twirly skirts. This year I found a pattern that I LOVE with a drop waist. I would give a tutorial on here but I am not very good at that so I will just attach the links that I found the patterns on. The first skirt is a drop waist twirly skirt. I got this pattern from a blog called Just Deanna. This skirt turned out so cute. I was a little unsure about the fabrics, because there is very little orange in the print fabric, but I just love it!
I loved it so much I decided I needed to make some hair accessories. I wish I could pull off a headband like that! The flower tutorial came from a blog called anniescupboards. The middle of the flower I just played around with. you could also just put a button in the middle.

Hannah woke up this morning with huge plans for the day. She decided she was going to make some extra money (I thought you had to have money to make extra money :) ) The way she was going to do this was to sell makeup. When I questioned her about where she was going to get the makeup to sell, she reassured me that she wasn't actually going to sell the makeup, but she was going to do make overs on people and charge them for it. After a couple of hours of organizing and sitting out in the sun she decided that make overs is not a very lucrative business. So she came up with plan #2... Kool-Aid. Why didn't I think of that? When her and her friend were in making signs I asked them how much they were going to charge for their kool-aid to which Hannah responds $4 because I know how to write a 4. You Go Girl!!

Hannah starting taking dance at In-Motion Dance Studio (little plug) last summer and she has enjoyed every minute of it. She especially loves the large mirrors. Tonight we had her dance recital and she was amazing. I was a little nervous that she would clam up, but oh no, not my little ham. She did a fabulous job and she was so beautiful.

So the weather outside has been so mice lately and we have all been loving being outside. Yesterday, Hannah was outside in the backyard playing and I was inside making dinner. I love my new house because the back of the house is full of windows and I can see her almost anywhere in the backyard. For a brief moment I couldn't see her so I peek my head out and yell her name. She answers me and I realize she is sitting pretty close to the side of the house in the flower beds. As I look down I can see that she has her pants down and is going to the bathroom. WHAT!! When I asked her what she was doing, she said, "I was just pretending I was camping and I had to go potty!" I thought only boys did things like that:)

So we finally heard on our house that we have been waiting on since May, and WE GOT IT!!!! I am so excited, I can hardly stand it. It has been a really long wait and very trying at times, but I am so thankful that we got it. Now we have about 3 weeks to pack our house and move. I can do that right?! I am not even about to complain about all of the other things I need to do at the same time, because I am just so excited that we are going to be buying our first home, and it is perfect!
So I got these pictures from the listing site and this is obviously not our stuff, but you can at least see the house.

I know that it is Friday and I haven't been Thankful for a couple of weeks, but I have been really busy lately. Which brings me to what I am thankful for. Last night Chad turned on a couple of his CD's and we just sat on the couch listening to music. Hannah started showing off his skills as a dancer. It was so funny and entertaining. This morning I am thankful for a happy, energetic 3 year old. And I am also thankful for taking a few minutes to slow down and enjoy dancing with my daughter.

So a lot of my friends that blog do something once a week where they share some kind of insight or memory or something cute on a specific day. I really like Thankful Thursday as a way to reflect on things you are thankful for at least once a week. I have wanted to do it for some time now, but every time I think about it it's like Friday or Saturday and Thankful Saturday doesn't really sound that great. I don't know how good I will be at this, but I will do my best and if I forget, feel free to let me know and keep me in line.

So it's been a while since I have posted anything about Her. (If you have missed previous posts regarding Her, you might want to look back a few months) Mostly because she was gone for quite some time. I thought she was probably going to be gone forever. No Way!! She is back with a vengience . Hannah talks about her all the time, and we have learned a few more things about her. (If I am confusing you and you are wondering if I am talking about Her as a pronoun, or a proper noun, I don't know what to tell you. It confuses me too, and I am a school teacher.)
