We have gone to a gingerbread class with family and friends since Hannah was little and we were excited to go again this year although sadly we were missing a few.

Every so often Hannah has talked about getting her ears pierced. Last Christmas I gave her some pierced earrings and told her we could go an get her ears pierced. It took her a while to get ready but this fall she said she wanted to do it!
She took Baby with her for moral support. Her lip biting and firmly clasped hands showed me she was a little nervous – and I didn’t blame her. This was a big step for my girl!
All smiles as they cleaned her ears.
Dots – check!
We chose this location as she could get both ears done at once. My brave girl!!
She checked herself out each time we passed a mirror and I couldn’t blame her! So pretty!
Way to go Hannah!!

Hannah and I love sharing time together decorating our Christmas tree. There are no rules and I love how fun and unique it is each and every year! Here is this year’s creation decorated while wearing her adorable new Christmas pyjamas!
She was pretty quiet when it was her time to visit Santa but she did eventually open up and share her wishes with him.

Hannah has been singing with the children’s choir at our church for a couple of years now and she really enjoys it! I can’t explain the feeling that comes over me when I look up and see MY daughter singing and praising the Lord! I still have ‘pinch me’ moments and seeing her sing from her heart is another one of those moments!

This year we went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa. While we’re sorry they’re no longer able to travel to Florida in November, we’re so thankful that we can now share Forever Family Day celebrations with them!
The following weekend we went to our annual get together with the families that we travelled to China with. This is one day that we will not miss as it’s important for our girls to get together. We don’t see most of these families other than this one day each year so it’s always a cherished day! It’s amazing how quickly the girls pick up where they left off and we have to chase them down to take this one pic!
And, our annual trip down memory lane…
Blessed beyond measure!!!
‘The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’

Today Canadians remembered those who fought in wars for the freedoms that we now enjoy.
Hannah was chosen with a little boy from her class to take up the wreath that each class had created using their hand prints and poppies. What a special moment to see my sweet girl taking part in such an important remembrance.

(Wednesday, September 14, 2016)
was at ‘For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration’. We both enjoy this so much!
Up next was one of our favourite rides, Toy Story Mania. This is such a great ride and one we try to ride a few times each trip!
Outside the ride it was a weird feeling to look where the former Backlot Tour ride used to be and see nothing but open space. It’s exciting to think of the new areas of Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land that are in their early stages of being built but sadly I’m guessing those are still a few years away…at least.
Before calling it a day we visited with Olaf. This was the first time she’d met him and she was so excited!
Tomorrow…Back to Epcot!
