Growing, growing, growing.........

We found out in February that we were having another baby!! This was definetly in the plan but still seemed very surreal. This past weekend we hosted a Gender Reveal party at our home. It was so much fun to find out what the baby would be with our friends and family. The invitation instructed the guests to "Dress Your Guess"....meaning to wear either pink or blue. About 98% of the guests had on blue. Carson being the smart child that she is wore a blue shirt and a pink skirt. It was fun to see everyone get into the theme.

Some of the guests and I......everyone wearing blue:)

The invitation

Sorry this is sideways but I cannot get it to delicous!
She just found out she was going to have a sister!!

We are so excited that Caroline Ruby Hahn will join us on September 30th!!!  Here we go with the fun and adventures of 2 little girls~

This is What Four Looks Like

To me this is what being 4 is all about.....Carefree, happy and joyous.  Not a care in the world and doing exactly what you should be doing at this age.  Playing and loving life.  Most days she is such a happy child and just wants to do the right thing.  The sweetest words I hear her say are "O.k. Mama" when I ask her to do something.  That's the only time she calls me "Mama".  Usually, it's Mommy:)  How fortunate I am to have a child with an easy going personality. 

Of course...this will probably all change in about 11 years.  Let's hope not:)

Carson's 4th Birthday Party

We had Carson's birthday this year at Kelly's Kakes.  One of our favorite little girly restaurants to go to.  They are known for their extensive dessert menu which of course is why we love it.  Their cupcakes are tremendous and they do the cutest cakes.

Sweet little girl friends

Carson and Ava before the party

Carson's party was a tea lunch with cake and the girls played a few games and dressed up at the party.  At a couple of  points during the party Carson said she wanted to go home.  Not really knowing what was going on at the time......I thought she wanted to go home to open her gifts.  I had told her we would take them home since it was only a 1 1/2 hour party.  Well how bad did I feel when Monday morning she was diagnossed with Strep!  She had never had that before......but they did the test at the pediatrician's office and sure enough.....positive for strep. 

All in all it was a very cute party and she did have a good time.  She had some of her friends from school and a few other close friends.

Beach Trip 2012

We took a fantastic trip down to one of my very favorite places.......Seacrest Beach, FL.....located on 30-A.  It's just perfect because if you don't want to get in your car you don't have to.  It is a stones throw away from Rosemary Beach (fabulous little shops and restaurants) and GORGEOUS beach houses.  There is a candy store called The Sugar Shack that Carson absolutely loved.  What kid doesn't love a candy store??

Also, close to Alys Beach......this place is like a different world.  Amazing homes.......right out of a magazine.  They have a delighful little dougnut truck and we discovered an adorable sprayground that we didn't go to but will next time.  One day we will stay at Alys.......maybe in my dreams:)

It really was a great trip......we had a few minor incidents.....stolen Chaco flip flops from the boardwalk (guess other people needed them worse than I did) and a $1200 charge from a restaurant where we had eaten.  We can laugh about them now......just one of the casualites of going on a vacation.

Carson learned how to take pictures with the Iphone-Bud & Ally's

Daddy made her a mermaid!

She loves the beach
We love it down there......just wish it wasn't so far.  But we'll be back next year for sure.  It's worth it once a year!

What's Been Going on This Summer

Summer is truly flying by.  We are, per the usual, going non stop this summer.  Carson has started swimming lessons each week and she loves it.  Her swimming teacher is our neighbor's good friend and saying she's wonderful would be an understatement.  She is a trained swimmer and also teaches kindergarten so she's perfect for the job!  What a blessing to have found her.

We have our SC friends coming to town this weekend and then on Wed, the 4th, we'll head down to Lake Blackshear for some South Georgia fun. 

Pictures of what we've been up to........

Sweet friends celebrating McKenzie's bday

Dance party!!

Carson's 1st Dance Recital

Carson had her first dance recital on Sunday, June 3rd and she did fantastic.  She was so happy and smiling the whole time on stage.  It was really adorable.  We were sure the proud parents.  We were so glad that Ne-Ne, PaDoe, Honey, Papa, Kendra, Josh, Lisa & Tim all got to join us.  What a fun day~

I love this one......she looks so confident.

Does it get any sweeter??

I love you more than........

Daniel and Carson have this thing that they do each night before bed.  Often times the two of them calling out to each other......from our bedroom to hers.
He says "I love you more than ice cream!"
She says "I love you more than cupcakes!"
He says "I love you more than steak!"
She says "I love you more than Hello Kitty!"  And then you know that she really loves you.

Eventually she gets tired and stops their funny banter. I could listen to them go back and forth all to my ears.
