Three generations of Hemingway men (or "little" men). I told them to make a silly face. This really was the best Grandpa George would do. Crazy guys!
Grandma Gay and Grandma Hardie posing with all the kids at Scarlett's birthday party. THE BEST GRANDMAS IN THE WORLD!!!!

Party Pictures...

Just a few pictures that I forgot were in the camera from Scarlett's birthday party. We had both sides of Grandparents over, Afton, Uncle Chris, Aunt Rachel, Thierry, and Amandine. We just had cake and presents. It was a great time.
Scarlett trying on her new hat and gloves (still attached to the hat).

New pictures...

Ok... so for now we're only going to post the new header photo. We also had a family picture taken, but that will be our Christmas card this year. So we'll post it later. We had a really good photographer, but poor Sofia was really sick (we're now thinking it was probably H1N1). You can see in the picture she was trying so hard to be happy and smile, but her eyes were puffy and watery. It just wasn't working well. Maybe next year.

Happy Birthday Scarlett!

Scarlett turned 2 years old today. It just breaks our hearts that she's getting to be such a big girl. She will always be our baby. She is such a joy to be around. It's so hard to remember our older kids at this age because we always had another baby right behind them, but our little red head is SUCH a crack up. She's quite mischevious! She's the only one of our babies who's ever tried stripping clothes off... and boy does she ever. Just this morning Sofia came to find us because Scarlett took off her clothes, then took off her diaper, then colored her tummy with marker. Scarlett was quite pleased with herself. She loves being naked and declares "NAKED SCARLETT" whenever she's getting changed. Her speech is phenomenal. She says something new everyday. As the youngest one, she MAKES SURE her voice is heard and screams more than anyone we have ever known... really ear piercing. She loves to play with babies and ponies, take baths, and color with Sofia. Her favorite breakfast is probably scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, but she really likes frosted mini wheats cereal too. She won't really eat a sandwich, but loves ramen noodles or mac and cheese for lunch. She doesn't really EVER like to eat dinner, but if she's cooperating she likes pasta dishes. We're so blessed to have little Scarlie in our family and are excited to see what this year brings for her!

Trick or Treat 2009

This year for Halloween Grayson was a cowboy, Scarlett a chick or duck (not too sure), and Sofia a fairy princess. They collected candy around the neighborhood and were even too excited to realize how stinkin' cold it was!

Pumpkin carving

All the kids really wanted a cat carved in their pumpkins.
Yep, Scarlett really did get that messy.
Dad tried using power tools, but Sofia and I did ours by hand just as quickly.
Sofia did a really good job poking the holes in the pumpkin for the design pattern.
