Four and FABULOUS!

Fabulous 4!
It happened! We survived the three-nage year! It had its ups and downs but it was SO MUCH FUN! And celebrating this birthday was just as much fun! You woke up to balloons in your bed (a birthday tradition!) and pancakes with syrup and sprinkles!
Pancake breakfast for the birthday girl! and sprinkles on top!
Then off to church, it was Palm Sunday after all! Your pre-school choir got to preform in the big church service today! Grammie even snuck some balloons into our car to surprise you!
After church we went home to party! You asked for a princess party for a month before, and since we planned to go to Disney world for your birthday (you didn’t know yet), it was the perfect way to celebrate! Mommy party prepped for a couple of weeks to make this the perfect princess celebration! The weekend of your birthday Nana came in town and helped with all of the party preparation also! There wasn’t a detail left untouched! We had painted princess boards to stand behind, all the princess Foods, princess crafts, a blow up slide, decorate your own cupcakes and more! You played and played and PLAYED with all of your friends and had THE BEST TIME! Later that night after everyone left, we had a small party with just family with pizza and homemade strawberry cake (your request for a pink cake with pink icing and sprinkles 😉)

 

It’s your party and you can cry if you want to. Ha!

The next day at school you got to celebrate with your friends some more!
You have grown so much! Physically and emotionally. You are so tall and your true personality shines brighter every day! You live to be outside (even though you have a strong fear of bugs…we are working on that), love to color, paint, draw, playdoh, string beads, cut paper, glue, sticker, or anything crafty! You love playing soccer at school, dancing (dance class), and would live in the swimming pool if we let you! We get a full does of whining and fits, but they cannot outshine your sweet, loving and fun personality. You love to sing “God songs” and I pray that you will continue to grow in your love for the Lord. We love you SOOOOOO MUCH that we cannot possibly explain our love for you!
Happy Birthday Sweet girl! 4 years old if going to be amazing!
With all my heart,
Mommy

Mardi Gras Mombo!

Mardi Gras was so much fun this year! Mommy and Daddy were invited to go to the Krewe of Centaur’s Ball with some friends. We got to get all dressed up in a formal gown and tuxedo. We had a “fireman themed” table and we had so much fun with friends!

We took yall to the Krewe of Highland Parade. This is a fun parade to go to since it is on a Sunday, during the day and much more family oriented. They even throw lots of fun things like stuffed animals and moon pies! Will caught one of those! We went with our Sunday school class friends and it was a blast! Yall loved playing with the other kids before the parade and catching the fun stuff (although the loud noises were not Hayley’s favorite, so we had ear phones for back up).

And one of yalls favorite things we did was make “King Cake Bubble Up.” It is basically a king cake casserole. Hayley you couldn’t wait for it to get out of the oven for a taste!

Love yall to the moon pie and back 😉

Its a New Year and mommy and daddy went skiing!

Happy 2017! Its going to be an amazing year! So many fun trips and events planned! Its going to be a great one!

We (just mommy and daddy) took a ski trip with Aunt CaitCait and Uncle Josh.

On the plane about to head to CO!

We went to Silverthorne, CO and skied in Copper Mountain. It has been a LONG time since I have skied (junior high to be exact) so I was nervous. Josh had never skied, CaitCait hasn’t skied in about how long I was lacking, and Daddy, well….h’s just good at everything so he was a pro. It was a little rocky at first, but I am happy to report that I didn’t even fall on my first time down the mountain. Cant say that about all of the other times. Ha! I am not a very adventurous skier so I was perfectly happy just taking it easy on the bunny slopes!

The house we rented was so nice! had a beautiful view and we even had a little fox friend come and visit us!

One of the most fun things we did was dog sledding! We loaded up on a sled and about 10 Huskies pulled us all over. Its was so much fun!

We also got to take a horse and carriage ride through the snow and that was so fun! it took is to a lodge where we had hot coco and listened to a band play.

Even though I wasn’t very good at skiing (and I slowed your dad down a lot…bless him for sticking with me), I got altitude sickness while we were there it it was pretty rough. I was nauseous a lot and had migraines (my first time to ever have one). I even almost passed out on the ski lift. Luckily I made it to the top of the mountain and a hippie let me drink out of his water bottle, Ha! But all and all it was fun! I would love to take yall back one day when yall get older.

We missed yall!
