December Days

I told you I wouldn’t get to this before Christmas! LOL!!

We had a little snow on Hailey’s birthday. The kids were so excited!!! It only stuck to the patio table, but for them it made their day!


Hailey took this picture of Collin and I.  You can’t really see the snow, oh well!


This year there was a lighted parade that Hailey’s Daisy troop was in.  She had a blast!  They walked a really long time and it was SUPER cold.

The next day was Hailey’s birthday party.  She had a Polar Express theme!

Darren came before he had to go into work.  He was our “conductor”.



We were fortunate enough to have our very own Librarian  to read the story! HAHA!


Hailey passed out sleigh bells to everyone.


Collin had a good time too.


The kids made paper chains to count down to Christmas.


And sparkly door knockers


We had a hot chocolate bar that included marshmallows, chocolate chips, candy canes, whipped cream, and sprinkles!

Collin got his first taste of ice cream from Papa!  There’s no going back now!!

Grandma made it to the party.  This was her first outing after her neck surgery…. She is doing wonderful now, out of the brace and starting back to work this week.

1st outing after surgery... :(

Hailey received so many nice gifts… Lots of art stuff that she is thoroughly enjoying!

That has to be one of the greatest birthday party themes I have ever seen. I also must be a really awful friend, b/c I had no idea your mom had neck surgery and was hooked up like that!!!!

I'm jealous of your snow, even if it only covered the table.
