Catching up

There are always several tea parties happening in Hailey's room.

It is nice that her toys can attend too.

This past week my sister Kendra left to spend her summer in India doing humanitarian aid. She is studying public health at BYU. We are sad she is gone, but glad she will experience the real joy that comes from helping others.

Steve got invited to go to a free 3-D screening for Brave before it comes out in the theaters. They gave us each a complimentary bucket of popcorn and drinks. Yea!

It's a pretty fancy theater. They had an organist and organ that lifted out of the ground and entertained the audience before the movie started. I suppose that is why a normal ticket for this theater cost $16.50 a person.

The movie was great! And Hailey was well behaved!

My sister Gillian is out of town for the next 3 weeks, so we took my other sister Clarice with us to the screening. I am so glad my sisters live close by!

For Father's Day Hailey and I made Steve caramel peanut clusters. Saturday I wrapped them and left them on the table. While I was doing the dishes Hailey walked in with several peanut clusters that had bites taken out of them.

I went next door to get Steve, who helping run an estate sale for our neighbor who just died. This is what I told him:

"Hey Steve, Hailey just unwrapped your Father's Day present and dumped it on the floor. She is eating it up right now. Oh, I can't bend over to pick it up. So if you want it, while there's something left, you had better come home right now. One more thing: Hailey also just spilled a full glass of milk on the floor and I can't bend over to clean it up either."

Father's Day for us included eating lunch with Steve after Church. He had a baptism to conduct and he was speaking in a night sacrament meeting for those who work and can't attend during the day. Steve is always busy!

Hailey was having a really bad day this day.

Here we are at lunch time, still in her nightgown, with her wild hair after crying and screaming all morning.

I told Steve I didn't know if she would still be here when he got home from work. Not every day is a bed of roses.

Thank goodness my mom came and got her.
