The newest member of the Hogan family and our extended family...
Miss Gillian..

This sweet smelling sweetheart was born this month.. I had the pleasure of visiting the Hogan's as they prepared for the grandparents to visit.. People are coming from far and wide to see this special little girl..
The Hogan kids Emma and Ethan look positively enamored by Gigi.. They just want to hold her, touch her cute toes and share the love..It was truly heartwarming..

Mom and Dad still have thetired/ hazy look in their eyes but they are beaming with happiness..
Here is the latest family portrait..

It was a treat to spend some time with the Hogans and welcome Gillian into the fold..I can't wait to watch her grow..
Hugs and Blessings,
Auntie Alex

A little "window"...

No, we aren't remodeling the house... Missy's first tooth fell out last night.. Daddy helped it along with some tugging but the tooth would not budge until it was good a ready..
On her way to brushing her teeth, Maya shrieked in happiness..
"Mommy my tooth fell out!"
She was so excited she almost lost it.. Which led to another issue..we couldn't find the tooth pillow Ms. Lisa made in preschool. We searched high and low.. Its MIA. So Mommy had to whip one up..Not that I have any fabric or anything.. She settled for some scraps and she was thrilled to hide her tooth for the tooth fairy...
The tooth fairy visited last night and at 3am Missy came in to let us know that she had gotten an entire dollar..
Another milestone..Time Flies..
