We’re kooky, but hopefully not too creepy…

Hanging With Daddy April 30, 2009

The other morning Elyse and Daddy hung out on the back porch watching the rain.  They looked so cute I had to snap a few pictures.

My cousin Ann sent this onesie when I was pregnant with Elyse.  I absolutely love it and was so glad when it finally fit!

Cruisin’ April 23, 2009

Filed under: Family,Vacations — hjhadams @ 10:20 am

Last week we were lucky enough to go on a cruise with Nana & Dede (Jim’s mom & dad) and also Aunt Kym, Uncle Kenneth and cousins Kelsey & Collins.  (Kym is Jim’s sister.)  We left Mobile, Alabama, on Saturday the 11th and cruised around the Gulf of Mexico until Thursday the 16th.  We had a wonderful time!

Here we are getting ready to set sail (or whatever it is called)

(She isn’t crying…I think she was in the middle of her sentence.)


At dinner we let her try some “real” food…she LOVED the rolls and was not happy if you took it away from her!

In Memory of Special K April 1, 2009

Filed under: Elyse — hjhadams @ 2:21 pm

One of the women I’ve gotten to know online, Tina from Michigan, had a son name Kevin Matthew on August 20, 2008.  Sadly, due to genetic/developmental problems, he passed away just a few weeks later on September 14.   Tina walks for March of Dimes to remember Kevin and her other “angel” baby, Michael Isaac.  We are happy to be supporting her this year.  The mission of March of Dimes is to improve health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.  If you’d like to show your support, click here.

Here’s Elyse sporting her ‘In Memory of Special K’ bracelet:
