Halle's Brithday!

Halle is 4 years old!!! I can't believe it. She's just growing up so fast. She is the most beautiful, smart, outgoing little 4 year old ever. I'm going to brag for a minute so I hope all of you enjoy :) Halle had her 4 year old Dr Appointment last Friday. Everything they did this time was different then past times. They had her do an eye exam and she knew every letter & shape they pointed to. The doctor asked her to say her alphabet and instead she sang it. She got every letter. He asked her to count to 10 and she did it like it was nothing. Then he asked her to draw a picture of her and her little sister and write her name. She did so good! Her doctor even said he was impressed with her. Wes & I are so proud of her. She loves to learn. She's been in preschool this last year. I can't believe how much she has come out of her shell in such a short time. Mrs. Lisa is so good with her and she loves to go. She's done so well at meeting new friends at preschool and at church. She is the best big sister ever to Hayden. I could go on and on about my sweet little girl. We love her so much.

Here are a few pictures from her birthday. She was pretty spoiled :) I have to explain about the tool box. Lately she wants to fix everything. She takes Wes' screwdrivers and finds anything with a screw and "fixes" it. She did this at her Grandma & Grandpa's a little bit ago and they got the idea to get her her own tool box for her birthday. It's so funny! She uses it all the time, especially with Daddy in the garage.

Halle's party was on Sunday the 1st. So on her acutal birthday the 3rd, Wes & I took her to Boondocks. She loves this place! She would play in the kids area for hours if we'd let her. The first thing she wanted to do was ride the cars with Dad. After that we had some pizza, then she and dad played the video games. It was a super fun outing with the family. Hayden was so good while we were there.

Hayden's Blessing

Hayden is 2 months old already! I can't believe how fast time is going. We had her blessed yesterday in our ward. Our sweet Hayden looked so precious. Wes gave her the most beautiful & special blessing. I'm so thankful for him. He is an amazing husband and daddy and I love him so much. I'm also very thankful for the many family members and friends who came to support us. We wouldn't be the people we are with out them.

I thought about bearing my testimony and what I would say, but my nerves got the best of me. I just want everyone to know that I do have a testimony. I know that my family is forever and I am so grateful for that knowledge. I believe so strongly in the power of prayer. I know that the Lord hears and answers my prayers. I'm also thankful for my mom and mother-in-law. Both are wonderful examples of what a mother and wife should be. Thanks for everything you do for me and my family. I love you both so much.

I also want to say thanks to everyone who brought food over after the meeting. I still can't believe how many people were there to share this special day with us. Thank you.

She's finally here!!! Little baby girl was born on Sunday December 28th at 2:58 pm. She weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. She is just beautiful! Here are some pictures :)

We are still not sure on the name. We are thinking either Hayden or Taylor. The nurse took her last night to check her. When she brought her back she said she weighs 8 lbs 2 oz so she's lost a little, but they said it's just water weight. We are so happy she's here and healthy.

Letter To Santa

This weekend we waiting in line at the mall to see Santa Claus. Halle had written a letter to Santa and we kept telling her that we would get it to him, but of course we waited until the last minute. We ended up waiting for 2 hours! But... I think it was worth it. She spent a lot of time on her letter and the Santa at South Town Mall was so great with her. She handed him her letter and he asked what it said. She was shy as usual so he said he better open so he didn't miss anything. He sat with her for a few minutes and read her letter with her it was the cutest thing! She loved it! Here are a few pics from the mall.

Halle playing with the little boy waiting in line behind us.

I can't believe she was so happy after waiting that long.

She did such a good job on it.

If you can't read everything, this is what she wrote:

*She wrote her name & Santa's
*Helmet (for her 4-wheeler)
*Fun Dip (Candy)
*Baby Sister
*4 Wheeler
*Candy Cane

She is pretty spoiled cause she is getting all of those things :)

Gingerbread House

I know it's been forever since I've blogged, but I'm going to try really hard to get back into it. I started a new job 2 months ago and by the time I get home the last thing I want to do is be on the computer. Anyway, I'm going to try :)

Tonight Halle & I did a Gingerbread House from Costco. I was so impressed with how good she did. She was so patient and had a lot of fun with it.
