I had never heard of the Odyssey! radio show put on by Focus on the Family, so here's my tribute to it while we visited the headquarters and bookstore.

Hannah showing her sweet side by bringing me a flower.
She's got a beautifully independent spirit. I love that about her.
A while back I blogged about my my Baby A (Leah). Today I'm going to focus on my little Baby B. My Hannah Joy. Also known as Banana, Banana Bread, Nanners, and the infamous Nana Bug. Hannah is my second born, but is just one minute younger than her sister. As I mentioned before, during my pregnancy, the doctors referred to my babies as "Baby A" and "Baby B". And like any mother-to-be, I wondered what my babies would look like, act like, and grow up to be. I quickly discovered that my 6 lb. 3 oz. baby with a ton of black hair would be my spunky little ball of fire. Hannah is so expressive. I call her the girl with a thousand faces. And she loves to act. She'll look at her reflection in the mirror and practice smiling, frowning, crying and acting surprised. Everything with Hannah can be dramatic. I always say that when Hannah is upset, you'll hear about it with loud wailing, but when she's happy, her sparking eyes, sweet smile and deep belly laugh will melt your heart. Hannah loves freely. Her hugs are strong and meaningful, and she is a great helper. She is smart, kindhearted, and independent. I like to describe her as "passionate." My prayer for my amazing girl is that her passion will be channeled into good things: loving God and loving others. Those are two things I hope she never stops being passionate about.
At Passionberri. The sugar high was just kicking in.

Hannah proudly riding her pony named "Gingerbread Man." What a sweet smile!
Little Leah on her pony named "Tom". She was a pro.
Leah pointing out "Wilbur". She tried to look for Charlotte, but couldn't find her. =)
Hannah took this pic of me while we were on our hayride. She's such an artistic gal.
Finding our way through the corn maze.
Should we jump?
Yes we should!

Well, I intended to post this yesterday (being election day and all), but we had some issues with my laptop and Mike ended up on the phone with Dell most of the night. Even though the election is over, I'm still feeling a little patriotic. And I think it's pretty cute that Leah (and Hannah) both know the Pledge of Allegience. So enjoy the video of my little Bee, and I hope you all got out and voted yesterday!
Liberty and justice for all........

I'll get to our fun pumpkin patch experiences tomorrow, but for now, I know everyone is dying to see pictures of our sweet little Dorothys on Halloween. And I will keep you waiting no more.....
Hannah practicing walking in her ruby slippers. They had their hands full carrying Toto and a candy collecting bucket, but they handled the pressure just fine.
Leah looking coy.
We met up with our other friends Mike and Sara and their three boys Drake, Dax, and Dane. Here's the whole crew dressed up and ready to get some candy. And candy they did get. Mike and I have been shamelessly eating out of their buckets. Is this wrong?
