Talking with Mrs. Bear

Olivia can be quite the "chatty cathy." She went on and on like this to Mrs. Bear, who luckily is a VERY good listener!

Family Pictures

Last Saturday, we had our family pictures done. In typical Kane family fashion, I was rushing around on Friday night trying to find the last minute things we needed. In the midst of my mad dash shopping, I lost a bag full of fabric, patterns, thread, and zipper with which I was going to sew Olivia a dress to wear for the pictures (yes, that in and of itself was a mad idea to attempt to sew a dress in one night, when I have only ever sewn one dress in my entire life- I like to think I get that type of ambition from my mother). So, the mad dash shopping continued on Saturday morning as I tried to find something for Olivia to wear. It all turned out just fine and losing the fabric was a blessing in disguise. Mama Winterton was wonderful to come and not only be our photographer, but also our fashion consultant and seamstress to mend Liv's hat. Thank you, Mama! Here are a few of our favorites...

And this one just makes me laugh...

This is what happens when you scare Liv...

It melts my heart everytime I hear it.

Bad Habits

Our sweet little Olivia is developing some bad habits. Aside from being rather inconsiderate about who she farts on and spraying me with spit everytime she sneezes (I think she may have picked that one up from me- oops), she also is a tv tube addict. Don't get me wrong, we don't make a habit of just sitting her down in front of the tv for entertainment, but she is mesmerized anytime a tv is on around her. She will turn her head in order to see it if she isn't facing the right direction. I think her favorite show is "Dancing with the Stars" probably because that is the one that she watches most frequently. I think some good might actually come from this. She kicks her feet everytime she sees them dancing, and has really found a love for watching herself dance in the mirror. You know, I was once a tap dancer... it may be in her genes.

Free Gas: Inquire in Rear

Aunt Hezzie gave this outfit to Olivia. It cracks me up everytime I see it.

Pretty blue eyes.

All bundled up for a walk. Fortunately, the weather has been beautiful here lately.

Little cousin Katie and Liv- Katie has a talent for making Olivia laugh. When Liv is in her swing, Katie ducks down so she can't see her. Then she jumps up, scares Liv, and says "Ribbit." That's all it takes! Olivia laughs and laughs like it's a new trick every time Katie does it.

Thanks Grammie!

Thanks, Grammie, for sending me this VERY cute dress! I can't wait for Christmas.
