Blogger's Block


It hasn't been an intentional break from blogging, but it has definitely been one nonetheless. A lot has happened in the past almost-month! I have tons of pictures to upload, tons of stories to tell...yet I'm just not feeling it. I realized that the one of the biggest reasons I blog is for my parents, so they don't miss out on all the sillies and sweeties of Hallie. Well, they were here visiting for the beginning of my "blog break", so I didn't feel the need to post. The other reason I blog is for those four or five friends who actually read the blog and enjoy keeping up with the happenings of Hallie. To y'all, I apologize...I'm sure you're just itching to know what she has been up to! Ha! ;o) And the last reason I blog is for me...I adore looking back and seeing how Hallie has grown. So, I'm promising (myself if no one else) to blog soon. :o) Until then, here are a few things we've been up to:

*Hallie had her first ballet recital. She was absolutely adorable. She did a great job, and I should really have had those pictures and video up before now. Shame on me!

*Nonna and Pop came to visit--Hallie absolutely adored getting to stay home with them all week. She got loads of love and attention, and they (Nonna and Pop) loved every minute of it, too. I was sick most of the time they were here, so it was a true blessing to have them here with us! I joked that I had Nonna's Maid Service with me for the week and was sad to see it leave! Ha!

*Hallie got her very own Christmas tree complete with ornaments from Nonna. And guess what--the tree is pink! :o)

*Hallie was absolutely precious decked out in her Auburn cheerleader outfit to cheer on the Tigers. :o) She has also perfected her "War Eagle"!!

*We had Thanksgiving with Jonathan's side of the family in College Station, TX. Hallie got to see a lot of her cousins and was very excited about it!

*Hallie had a Thanksgiving lunch at her daycare and I got to attend...Daddy was home sick. After lunch, Hallie got to go back to school with me. She had a lot of fun walking around my school, petting all the animals we have in our courtyard--bunnies, turtles, a prairie dog, and canaries! Then she enjoyed making a little turkey treat with the rest of the students. She was so big--and really better behaved! Ha!

*During Thanksgiving break, Hallie got to spend two nights with Gramps and Rah-Rah. Jonathan and I were extremely ill for most of the Thanksgiving break. I suppose we had a stomach bug of some sort--it knocked both of us down for two days straight. We are very thankful that we have Jonathan's parents so close! They didn't hesitate for a second in taking care of our little angel. And we didn't worry for a second that she wasn't being taken care of!

So...I suppose that sums it up. In about a week and a half, we're heading to Alabama for my parents' wedding anniversary party. Should be fun!

Maybe I didn't have blogger's block after all...just lack of time. :o)
