My Little Angels

This story was so sweet I had to write it down...

This afternoon the girls and I were putting some Christmas decorations up and Hannah went and sat down on the couch. I could tell she was thinking really hard about something. She sat there for a few minutes and then walked over to me and teared up. She said with the sweetest, most concerned voice, "Mommy, what can I do if I miss you so much when you go to heaven?" Shocked, I said, "Honey, mommy's not going to heaven." She said, "Yes you are. Everyone goes to heaven someday. But I'm going to miss you when you go and I'm going to always be sad." I was doing everything I could to not let my tears show, so as I kissed her head over and over, I assured her that I would not go to heaven for a long, long time and that I was going to stay right here and be her mommy. She said, "Mommy, when you go to heaven, I want to go with you..."
Talk about melting a mommy's heart!!!

Halloween 2010

We had another fabulous Halloween this year. The girls were really into it and the day couldn't come fast enough. Hannah went back and forth on what she wanted to dress-up as, and finally settled on Ariel. Alice Anne wanted to be Snow White...until she saw Hannah in her mermaid costume and then of course she had to be Ariel too!

Our sweet friends Will and Hank hosted their annual Halloween Party on Swiss Ave. The girls got in lots of play time and then we headed out to the decked-out street for trick-or-treating. It was SO crowded and after about 5 houses, the girls had had enough. So we came home and hopped on the golf cart to visit a few houses on our street.

The 2 Belf Mermaids and the cutest Tinkerbell

Look how cute these kids are! They've all been best of friends since they were newborns and they still love playing together!

These 2 took off and were ready to get some candy...

Alice Anne couldn't keep up, so she grabbed Samuel's hand...

...they got completely run over on the sidewalk, so she hopped on her favorite boy's shoulders!

This picture cracks me up!!! She was trying to be "Spooky!"

A rare pic of the 2 of us

Hannah was so excited to go to our old house. She said she didn't have to knock because she used to live there. We had to explain that one to her...
The discussion has already started between them about what they're going to be next year. So far, Hannah is going to be a Fairy and Alice Anne is going to be Snow White. We'll see...
