christmas breakfast!

This past Saturday we had our 4th annual Christmas breakfast with friends (Christmas pj's required). Last year there were only 3 little ones...the year that number doubled! There were actually 7 kids there. We tried to get a pic of all of them in front of the tree...this is the best we could do...

Raven and Hazel did really well ~ I think Raven was entertained by the chaos :) Raven also loves her baby sister so much, and she loves giving Hazel kisses. It melts my heart! *sigh*

while we wait...

Well, Matt and I have slipped on telling the baby's name so many times that we decided to start telling people as we see them or talk to them. There are some friends and family who we don't get to talk to that much, so I thought I would do the big reveal here :)

We are naming our little angel... Hazel Hope!

These are some pictures from my baby shower last weekend. We're SO excited to meet her and hold her in our arms (that day can't come soon enough), and we feel so blessed to have the love and support from all of you!

...stay tuned!

Happy Halloween!

We had an eventful hallows eve this year! Raven and I got dressed up for a halloween lunch at a friends house. We were both pumpkins, but I realized today that we didn't get any pictures of my pumkin (my big belly)...its all about the kids anyways :) Later that evening we met up with a bunch of friends in Magnolia village where they block off the streets and the stores hand out candy...we sent raven on a mission to get her mama some candy! She had a great time running around with her friends! Here are a few pics...

Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend we went to a pumpkin patch nearby with some friends! We took a little hayride over to the patch, picked pumpkins, took a hayride back, witnessed the launching of a pumpkin (very exciting), and raven played in a hay maze. Later that afternoon more friends came over to carve, eat pumpkin seeds, and hang out! I think raven had a good time - she always loves seeing her friends!

A very crowded hay ride, but raven doesn't seem to mind

pumpkins are fun to sit on

dirt is more fun than pumpkins

less crowded hay ride back

hay maze...not so sure about this, but next year should be better

giving kisses to maida

the best i could get quickly of the 3 little ones
(alma, maida, and raven)

baby talk

Babies have been the talk of the Willis household lately! Here is a video of Raven taking care of her baby. Its from Matt's phone, so its a little blurry...

We had a pirate birthday party this past weekend (on national talk like a pirate day), so Raven dressed up as a, of course :) She had a great time playing with her little buddy Eliana, who was also a skeleton! They had a great time together...feeding each other fishy crackers, hugging and kissing, and climbing up and down the stairs a million times! They were very cute together!

Raven's one year photos

We had these taken right after Raven's 1st birthday...its just taken me a while to get them on our computer :) There were hundreds to choose from, so these are several of my favorites!
