Hailey's 11th Birthday

Happy birthday, Hailey!

Our birthday tradition of doughnuts in the morning.

And our German birthday ring.

Hailey could not wait until later to start opening presents.

Jeni and Hailey picked up a large Barbie house recently so today Hailey got Barbie Disney princesses.

Books for our voracious reader.

Over at the Ashcraft's for more birthday fun.

New furniture for the Barbie house.

More princess Barbies!

Hailey isn't really interested in cakes, but a giant brookie? Yes!

Beach Trip to Palos Verdes


A good day for a trip down the coast to Palos Verdes.

Aubrey is ready to run amok.

Better stick with Mom on the trail.

Even the puppies came out with the Ashcrafts.

Aw, Aubrey loves the puppies.

Having fun throwing rocks into the waves.

Great rocks for climbing.

Good to see them having a great time together.

Aubrey's First Birthday

It's our little birthday girl!

She loved her birthday balloons.

Birthday doughnut run.

Aw, little grumpy James.

Aubrey had her own doughnut holes.

She wasn't quite sure about her balloons floating above her while she ate.

She's all ready for her birthday.

More balloon fun.

Picking up her cakes from the Westchester Bakery.


Our little girl loves chips.

Happy birthday!

It's already been a whole year with this sweetheart.

We set up a line of items for Aubrey per the South Korean tradition Doljabi.

She chose the bowl and spatula and then the paintbrush to continue mixing in her bowl. A future baker perhaps?

She got a kick out of opening presents.

Ooh, she's going to love playing with her tea set.

She likes these books that play music so we bought her Swan Lake.

Playing house with James.

Feeding her new baby.

She didn't quite know what to do with her very own cake.

Grabbing hand fulls of frosting.

The more she touched it the messier it got.

Okay, time to get washed up.

Such a pretty swan cake from the bakery.

Daddy helped with the candle part.

Time for more presents.

Ooh fun!

She liked her new animal puzzle.

It's been a fun-filled day.

Oops! A confetti balloon popped.

Time to clean it up!
