Meet Hannah & the Clown

We took the girls to our local fire department's open house this afternoon. Had it not been so chilly, we might have stayed longer, but our little H.annah M.ontana was freezing and felt a coat would ruin her entire ensemble. Mia is wearing the clown costume I made for Leila when she was four. And let me tell you, if I have taken the time to sew something, you better believe I'm going to recycle it! :-)

On another note, if you haven't already, please pop over to see Amie at Heart Smiles and enter the generous giveaway she is doing to honor an amazing young man who would have been turning 13 on Tuesday, had he not gone home to Jesus last year. Amie is also asking that we join her and others in honoring Brent on Tuesday by performing a Random Act of Kindness. Pop over and read more about this remarkable kid.

I love that the FD gave out candy and BIKE HELMUTS....that is excellent!!

I am laughing about your little H@nnah M.....I remember fighting with my Mom every year on trick or treat about the jacket....it was always so cold, she wanted me to wear a jacket, but I never wanted to ruin the look of the costume....

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Michelle,

I found you through Angie's blog. I'm Brent's Mom. Gosh, you ladies are just blowing me away! I "teared up" when I saw the graphic on Angie's site, and then she gave credit to you. I just HAD to come and meet you! My heart is OVERJOYED that you (and other sweet ladies) are celebrating Brent's life this way. You guys are AMAZING. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH for this!

Now, your family is just BEAUTIFUL! I SO WISH my hubby wanted to adopt. Having had 3 boys, I've ALWAYS wanted a girl too! (I have LOTS of "girly fun" with my nieces, so I certainly can't complain) =-)

Okay, I won't keep you. I just wanted to meet you and to tell you THANK YOU for celebrating Brent's life with us!

LOVE,
Tonya

PS.. would it be okay for other's to "borrow" your graphic too?? I have a friend that might wanna use it. =-) (I'll give credit back to you from my blog, if that's okay)

Mia's makes the cutest clown I have ever seen. Her face paint is perfect. Are you the one to take credit on that one Michelle?? I used the paint sticks on Ella, and it was not fun and not perfect like Mia's. I have to say, you have many skills!!!!

Hannah Montana was adorable also. I don't think she has ever looked so good.

I am glad they both had so much fun.

Oh Michelle,

What a great post! The girls look positively adorable!!! Love the clown costume - we are recycling a lambie this year;)

And now I'm off to hop over to Amie's and see about the joy she is spreading.

Love you, girl
Heather

How did you get Mia's cheek circles so perfectly round? My squirrely girls would never stand for that. Good job! Both kiddos look adorable!

Michelle,

The girls are so cute!! Mia has the sweetest little face...you want to just grab those cheeks and smother them with kisses.

How great that they got free helmets. Very nice!

Hugs,

Ohilda
