Hello, Vivian!

Have you heard that little sweet Vivi is here? She was born last Thursday & let me tell you, she is quite the little beauty AND just the sweetest thing. I barely heard a peep out of her the whole time I was there. Actually,  I wasn't even planning on going for several reasons that I won't get into. I had REALLY wanted to go, but didn't think I would be able to. Anyways, my oh, so wonderful husband called me on the way home on Thursday and convinced me that I needed to be there (not that I needed convincing- I could hardly stand it being away during her arrival into this world on Thursday). So, with that, I was able to arrange a quick surprise trip in to Htown with Hazel while Jeremy stayed behind with Hutch for a "boys weekend." 

 A couple of weeks before Vivi arrived, however, my Aunt Jan brought over Mary Linnley to play with the H's. She is too cute- they had so much fun. Poor thing, I don't think she could get a word in with Hutch. At one point, Hutch asked, "Can she talk???" 

So back to Miss are some pics! Love her tons!

Camera shy. Don't worry,'ll be used to it in no time. Proud Lolli!

Hazel didn't know what to think about her new cousin...she was quite curious. I am sure she will be teaching her new tricks in no time!

Looks like we have a thumb sucker on our hands!

Love. this. sweet. face.

Hello, world!!!

Hazel doing the "Itsy Bitsy Spider"

Surrounded by little loves :) 

Do you see a smile? I think I see a smile. And not just from Pop. 

Ryder has learned some crazy belly dance & had us rolling. As you can see, he was pretty impressed with his new talent, too.

Oh ya-yah...Ryder has a trampoline. 

Anything new going on with you guys? Nothing too much here...Hutch & Jeremy attended a couple of birthday parties this weekend that were tons of fun. Did I tell y'all we canceled our cable? We did a couple of months ago. But, we now have NetFlix OD and Hulu Plus and some other things, so I really don't miss it! I have recently started watching Downton Abby. Any other fans? I really like it, but, wow, do they talk fast. I think I only understand about half of every episode I watch.  There are  few other random things I could talk about but I figure this post has been long enough, so I will try to post again next week! Have a great rest of the week & weekend! 


  1. I am so glad to hear y'all came over to the NETFLIX side. I am a HUGE fan except for the doubling of the fee from 8 to 16 bucks. A little steep but we love the selection. As far as watching anything British, we always use subtitles. It really helps. As for us, we have a MASSIVE garden that we are tending and the dog ate one of our chickens last night. So, just normal stuff. I need to post some picture of the garden, etc.

  2. Congrats proud auntie! She's absolutely beautiful...and I think she looks a lot like her pretty big cousin think?!? Tell Carly congrats for me. I've been keeping an eye on yours (and her) blogs for an arrival update! Glad everyone is doing well. Hugs to you all.
