Happy Halloween

We ordered Hailey a cute Halloween costume that got lost in the mail a couple of weeks go. Even though it had a tracking number on it, no one could find it. We didn't want to buy another costume so we just bought her some wings and a wand. This pink dress is Hailey's favorite dress to wear so she was thrilled. (Sometimes I have to hide her dress just so I can wash it.)

She got to go trick or treating and came home with some candy, some pennies, and even a Tinkerbell card game.

Her new favorite thing to do is chase the black crows that love to visit our yard. She will watch them fly away and then run down the the street after them when they land. Poor crows never get a break from her.

A couple of days ago we "practiced" wearing her wings. It took her some time to get used to them.

Steve would pick her up and fly her around the house.

Our carved pumpkins.

Mine is a fairy on a mushroom.

Guess who loves ice cream?

No More Ice Cream!

She loves her Hello Kitty panties.

She likes to read on her mini toilet.

New words she can say: juice & baby (that makes 19).

Here is what came in our CSA box: Kale, Spaghetti Squash, Zucchini, Sweet Potatoes, Grapes, Pomegranates, Apples, Lettuce, and Broccoli. We have never tried Kale or Spaghetti Squash so hopefully we will love them.

Goodbye till next time!

Hailey wants to make breakfast.

She gets so excited to help. She seems to be fascinated with cracking eggs. Usually I let her help stir. She seems to think that is a lot of fun.

Hailey Loves Her Baby

Hailey has taken to feeding her dolls and stuffed animals with one of her old bottles. Her dolls sleep in a basket in her room and she loves to wrap them up in blankets and burp them. We started building forts out of blankets and she loves to have a small space to crawl in and play in.

Hailey during the week

She likes to have her hair done and get her toenails painted.
What a little lady.

As you can see she likes to pose for pictures.

She is at a funny stage right now. She loves to pick out her own clothes. She is not interested in wearing what we want her to wear, and that is fine. She is allowed to have her own opinion. She does not like to wear pants. She only wants to wear dresses and cries bloody murder when she has to take them off to get in the bath. I guess when it gets cold she will just have to wear leggings and sweaters with her dresses.

I just gave her some glittery pine cones left over from a craft a couple of years ago. She loves to move them from one flower pot to the next. One of her chores is to help water the flowers in our yard.

It is not very often she doesn't have something to say.

My friend Judy got Hailey this cute jewelry box at my baby shower. Hailey is obsessed with it. She loves to watch the ballerina twirl. She loves jewelry. I have never been a fan of that cheap plastic kids jewelry so I just gave her some of mine to play with until she gets some of her own. This has provided hours of fun for her.

"Hello" is Hailey's 17th word. She said it tonight for the first time and wanted to say it over and over again. I love how she says it; it's so cute.

Shh and Fake Sleeping

It's funny when Hailey starts doing something for the first time that we haven't taught her. Today Hailey started shushing us. Luckily we caught it on video.

Last night she started fake sleeping. We were lying down together when Hailey closed her eyes and started making snoring sounds. After a moment she started laughing. What a funny little girl! How does she even pick up on that stuff?

Another great day!

My darling sister Lauren got married and it was a perfect day.

The family

The happy parents.

What a great looking bunch.

At least my parents know there will always be someone to take care of them when they are old!

My brother's family

These two are mine.

Hailey's cousins Rex and Olive.

She was super smiley this morning!

She wanted to run around and play chase.

Hailey had such a fun time with her cousins.

Hey there Rex!

Even Judy and Steve came out to see Lauren and Tyler.

Who wants cake smashed in their face???
Tyler! Such a lady Laur!

Busy Making Banana Bread

She loves to play with real dishes and help in the kitchen.

The only mishap would be the cup of flour she dumped on the floor instead of in the mixer.

Just can't wait 'till they're done
