At first, Hannah was pretty aprehensive about the white stuff. Walking felt weird, and it kept sticking to her boots. When she finally touched it and it stuck to her glove, she could not wipe it off fast enough!
After a few minutes, she was all smiles!

Hannah wanted to help him open his presents. She liked the paper...hopefully she will get an idea as to what it to come with all of those colorful packages under the tree!

We went on a retreat with our church for Thanksgiving. The German hotel cooked us a turkey dinner based on recipes provided by the ladies in the church. It was quite a meal,and Hannah obviously enjoyed the pumpkin pie!
She's full, or at least I think she is!
After dinner, a bath, and jammies, there was obviouosly a little photo shoot that I was not privvy to. With 2 older brothers and 2 of their friends staying with us on the retreat, i may never know who took these pictures, but I will include some of the better ones.
I hope that you all are as blessed as we are!

She has gotten off of the bottle and only drinks from a cup. However, she loves these little water bottles. We have to watch her, because she is a notorious drink-stealer. Fortunately this one was actually hers, but at this going away picnic, I think that she took at least one drink from everyone's!
Hannah loves to feed herself, and has even started to use a fork and spoon...but not on Cheerios, of course!
Here she is today, drawing a picture for Daddy, or was that tearing up the paper? Anyways, whatever it was must have been quite a workout, cause she fell asleep holding her pencil at the table!

She points to objects and says "dis" or "dat".
She can almost get herself onto the couch, and can get herself down without help.

Anyway, to give her a more appropraite outlet for her artistic talents, I bought her some crayons and a coloring book. Here is her first attempt at coloring!
While taking these pictures, though, I noticed another first. Hannah has her first owie since coming home with us! Take a look at her middle finger!. Now, you would think that she would have cried or something to indicate to me that she had scraped her finger...but, alas, no. I was left to discover this after the fact and wonder just how and where she got such a thing. Poor Hannah!
