Two Girls and Some Pets

Ever since getting our cats this summer, I have been wanting to get a nice family picture with all our furry friends.  I planned on taking a few pictures of the girls for our Christmas card, so we decided to allow all the pets to join in as well.  It went about as well as you would expect, but I just can't get enough of them!


Christmas Tree Farm

Today, we made our annual trip to the tree farm to pick out our tree.  It was warm and beautiful and the perfect day to walk around the farm.  The girls cheered as dad cut down the tree, right after Hazel finished hugging it.


Baby Bump

At 35 weeks pregnant, it seemed like a good time to document this little growing baby.  Harvest is finally finished, the names have been finalized, little baby clothes have been washed and folded, and suitcases are packed.  For baby number three, that is really all we need.  We can't wait to meet you little one!


Hazel Lou Turns Two

Yesterday, our baby girl turned two.  She's incredibly sweet and equally sassy.  She's been singing happy birthday to herself all week and insists she is turning three.  She calls her sister Emma and I sort of hope she never outgrows that.  She loves her family, but her papa has always held a special spot in her heart.  She is big into naming her emotions right now, including sad, happy, frust {frustrated}, and scared.  Half the time, she is extremely opinionated in what she wants.  The other half, she simply yells "me too!" when Evelyn wants something.  Her favorite toy is her baby and she is constantly rocking her, feeding her, or putting her to sleep.  I can't wait to see her become a big sister soon!  Although, she also makes a pretty good little sister as her favorite game to play is to steal something that belongs to Evelyn {usually Susette} and then run away as fast as she can.  She loves to cuddle and is always giving the biggest hugs and kisses.  She despises clothing and appropriately spent her entire birthday in her birthday suit.  Hazel Lou, we love you so much and hope you had a wonderful second birthday!
