Snow Day 2012

The Sunday afternoon after Hailey's birthday we heard that it was supposed to snow. So the kids stayed glued to the back door waiting for the snow to come and, finally, it did. 

In anticipation of the snow falling, and since it may have been our first and last "winter storm" of the season, we decided to build a fire and make a bed of blankets in the floor and watch movies for the evening. The kids really enjoyed having their own bed downstairs and eating popcorn and watching movies by the fire.

So our snow this year was rather pathetic but I had a hunch it may be the only snow we got this year so we bundled the kids up and took them out in the 2 inches of snow that we did get. I guess it was enough for them because they loved it!

It was really the first snow that Caleb has played in. It snowed a couple of times last winter but he wasn't even walking then so he didn't get to enjoy it.

Yes, he has a tiny baby carrot for a nose.

Better Late Than Never!

Well, Hailey has been four for an entire month now so I figured I should post some pics from her birthday. It's crazy how she pretty much turned four over night. She was our little three year old and then just like that she was a big four year old. And not just in age but personality and even looks. She has just grown up so fast!

She really wanted a Rapunzel birthday because that is her favorite princess. And when I asked her which friends she wanted to invite she told me Parker, Griffin, and Matthew. Three boys. I think we are going to be in trouble when she gets older! But they are her buddies so that is who she had for her birthday. Three boys and a Rapunzel Party :)

Hailey was very excited about the cake Mimi picked out for her!
Although she did NOT want to be sung Happy Birthday to.
She has started getting embarrassed fairly easily these days.

Excited about some dresses she got. She seriously got the
hook-up on clothes this year for her birthday!
