She is little, but she is fierce!

This past year has been a whirlwind. We welcomed Auriel into our little family, moved across the country, did so many fun things, Ben started school, moved back across the country, had a crazy fall and an even faster Christmas season! I can't believe my little baby girl is one! We love her so much and are so grateful to have her little spirit in our family.

Her favorite words are "Dada" and "Uh-oh." She loves baby dolls, singing, scooting across the floor, and playing with her brothers. She adores her brothers. She giggles and giggles when they play with her. She loves to cuddle when she is tired and only sucks her thumb when she has her blanket right before she falls asleep. She loooooves to eat! She knows when you have food and she will let you know about it! She wants to eat anything and everything you are eating. Her favorite sign is milk!

This year her birthday theme was The Nutcracker Ballet. It was a winter wonderland of pink and tutu's.

We can't wait for what this next year holds for her! We love you baby Auri!

Merry and Bright

 Merry Christmas! I cant believe it has been a year since last Christmas, but So grateful to be home for Christmas. We are back at our old home in Branson. This year we didn't have our traditional Hamman Family Christmas. Everyone was out of town, so we had our own little Christmas eve fun!

The kids in their Christmas Jamies
 They each got to open gifts and Tate Chose one that was legos. He was so excited he didn't want to look up from the box to take a picture so we got this creepy face!

 He even had to show the cat his gift!

 Benny asked for a warm fuzzy blanket and I made him one. 

 Benny helped Auriel open her gift.

 We gave her a Princess Ariel doll. She adores her.

 The boys also opened the gift they gave each other. Ninja turtle swords and masks. They sleep with them.

Benny with his spider-man blanket. It has a chevron minky back. 

 These are our Santa cookies. The small ones are for the elves.

 Ready for Christmas Morning!

 We have a tradition of breaking through crepe paper to get to the tree! Swords were used this year.

 Benny got a fast bike this year. He loves it and even wanted to sleep with it that night.

 Tate got a scooter.

 Tate got a Batman blankie like Ben's

 Benny asked Santa for a fast jet this year.

 Santa brought Tate a truck

 Auriel gave the boys umbrellas.

 The kids gave Daniel a framed family picture for his desk at work.

 Celebrating Auriel's birthday. We eat pie for birthdays on my side of 
the family and so she got one too!

 She wouldn't let me put on her crown!

 Happy Birthday Auriel!

 I want pie!!!

I sis this collage of my journey with Auriel since this would be my last pregnancy. I love the transformation I have gone through to bring her into the world. I will always be grateful I had this oppertunity! I love her so much and and so blessed to have a girl among all these boys! 
WE love you Auri!
