Hailey is now a Sunbeam

Hailey is so excited to be in Primary FINALLY! She was so done with nursery - although she really loved her teachers. It's so fun to see her so excited about church.

Christmas Pics!

Christmas morning. Maybe Hailey should have asked Santa for a comb!

All of our hard work.

Making cookies is not all it's cracked up to be!!!
The girl cannot seem to keep it covered up!

Christmas 2008

I'm not quite into the swing of this blog thing yet so my Christmas posting is a month or so late. Anyways, Christmas was really fun this year. Ashley and Kevin surprised us and drove from Utah to visit. Christmas Eve we decorated cookies for Santa and put out carrots for the reindeer. We had a really yummy Christmas Eve dinner with Prime Rib. During the day Ashley and I made 7-layer salad, Christmas Potatoes, Pasta Salad, the whole 9 yards! Of course TaTa had to work Chrismas Eve and the alarms wouldn't set. The people at the alarm company were not in the Christmas Spirit and wouldn't really help. So poor mama sat at the store by herself until Dad got there. Once they got home we were all ready to eat (and Hailey got to open a few presents). Christmas morning was good and Hailey got everything she wanted. [Even though she was threatened many times that Santa wouldn't bring her anything this year for Christmas:)] My uncle Chris says whoever came up with the terrible twos hasn't been through the threes yet. She'll be 4 next month so hopefully we're past all that. Anyways, I had to work Christmas Day. I started a new job in December at one of the new hotels by our house. We had a quick brunch after presents and all went to the movies. We saw Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler and it was cute. After that, we raced home because I had to work from 3-11. It was hard leaving Austin and the girls on Christmas but they came and visited me at work that night.
