Today, we are going to go after naptime to avoid the snowsuit necessity of the early morning! :) I want to lose at least ten pounds, but I would be happier with about 20-25. God be with me as we go through this pregnancy pound battle yet again. :)

The kids started squealing and grunting at each other this evening during dinner. Oh my, it was loud...but very amusing. Wyatt's newest face is this scrunchy smiley expression. He reserves it for Kya and Grandma and Grandpa Mac. It's hilarious. I hope you enjoy listening in on a little Haner Home madness. :)

Happy Veteran's Day!
For Veteran's Day, Kya made a flag out of construction paper and glue and wrapped up some red roses in blue and white ribbon. She learned that we are from a country called, "Americat!!!" (Yes, that's how she says it, not a typo.) When she finished her crafts, she took them to her grammie (my fabulous MIL) who was not feeling well. We wished her a happy Veteran's Day and told her we are happy to live in a country called, "Americat!"

Tonight we celebrated my mom's and my birthday (November 9th and 13th respectively) at our house over dinner and cake (I LOVE CAKE! And my mom made a delicious yellow cake with chocolate frosting). It was a delicious meal and delicious company. What a blessing to have our family together and at least mostly healthy (both mom and dad have the cold which resulted in Wyatt's croup--ain't love grand!). My mom wished for my dad to quit smoking when she blew out the candles. We are all wishing and praying for that. I love you dad...would love you to be around and still announcing high school football when Wyatt plays someday. :)
These pictures were taken in our kitchen at our family dining table, which was kindly handed down to us by Scott's parents.

My friend Sarah "tagged" me and though I have yet to fully understand the meaning of being "tagged," apparently the idea is to share a little something about the particular topic with which you are "tagged." So, my topic is the view from my kitchen window. Our kitchen doesn't have a typical window-over-the-sink set up. My sink actually faces the living room--an attribute for which I am very thankful since I can watch the babies play while I wash up. :)
This window is in the kitchen nook and looks out to our front yard and the street on which we live. It's a lovely peaceful view. I love our home and am so thankful that my hubby does such a fabulous job on the yard (even when he's sick.) We feel truly blessed by our circumstances and surroundings. God is so good to us even as undeserving as we are.
Out this window, you can see our three pumpkins from Halloween (the fourth and littlest one got rotten and had to be discarded), two chairs, Kya's sandbox (built by her daddy), the lantana which are growing rapidly in this mild fall weather, and Scott's little flowerbed around one of two ash trees in the front yard. That's about it. :)

Every morning and afternoon (with a few exceptions), Kya spends time at her "learning table" reviewing her letters, numbers, colors and shapes. This is HER IDEA. She wakes up in the morning and from naps and says, "Learning time!" Isn't that the coolest? She is so spunky and excited to learn and spend time on her Leap Frog 'Puter. :) She recognizes and knows the sounds of all the capital letters and knows her numbers up to thirteen. She knows square, rectangle, triangle, trapezoid, semi-circle, circle, hexagon, pentagon, and her favorite, "OCTAGON!" I can't wait to see what she learns next. This is such an exciting time to watch her little brain as it absorbs everything to which it is exposed.

She is such a pretty girl, even when she is making a mess. :)
