She got mail!

So on our way to Toco Bell the other night, we grabed the mail on the way there. Haley got a letter from Santa!! She was so excited! We read it to her in the car. I kept looking back at her and she didn't stop smiling the whole time we were in the car. We even had to keep the back light on in the car so she could stare at her letter. The only problem is her list keeps changing or should I say getting longer....I guess we will see what the big man up North brings next week. Merry Christmas!!

Gingerbread house

So, I am a little behind on my blog. Last weekend we stayed home becuase the weather was so bad. We decided to pull out our gingerbread house kit that we have had for 2 years and put it to use. Haley loved it. I found myself making alone, while Haley was busy eating all the candy and Jason watching something on ESPN.
Brandon and Stephanie were suppose to go to a party that night but it got canceled due to bad they joined us.
We were in the mood for a good drink so we thought we could make "Sonic" type drinks. They were okay but next time I think I will drive down to Sonic.

Here is Haley and her cousin Lexee. A week ago was the first big snow storm of the year, so we took Haley sleding at Rock Canyon Park with my brother Scott and his family. Karen and Ross decided to come too with Chandra, Lincoln and Dallin. We had a great time. Haley loved it!
You get quite the work out walking up that big hill. Haley would make it about half way and get tired, so Jason would carry her the rest of the way.
Chandra, Dallin and Lincoln helped make a snowman with Haley. They just happend to come along some rabbit poop which made a great face for the snowman. Jason told Haley they were "Milk Duds."
What a fun Dad Jason is!!

She did it!!!

So a week ago we went to the mall to see santa and Haley flipped out. She wouldn't sit on Santa's lap. She cried and cried. The next day Haley said she didn't sit on Santa's lap because he had gloves on. So tonight we went to eat at Red Robin and asked her if she wanted to go up stairs and sit on Santa's lap. Jason told her she could just stand by Santa and we would tell him to take his gloves off. She seemed up for it. So here is a picture of us waiting line a short line to see Santa.
Notice Santa took off his gloves. Haley got up to him and quickly said, "I want a cash register and a kitchen." I could tell her heart was pounding. She was trying to be sooo brave. I can't believe she did it!
Later that night Haley said, "Mom, I'm such a big girl since I sat on santa's lap. I am so proud of my life!" You've gotta love Christmas time with little kids!

Pumpkin Time

We had a fun weekend. On Friday night Haley got to paint/carve her first pumpkin. We had dinner first.....
...then Haley and Tara made some yummy sugar cookies, while some of us carved pumpkins. Gary was busy typing a paper so he only came for dinner and then had to go back to school.
Here is the finished product. Jason and I carved the top left pumpkin. Haleys is the one right under it.
Group picture....
Haley thought her pumpkin was so awesome because as you can is throwing up! Happy Halloween!!!

Ward Halloween Party

Here is our little princess!
We had a great time at our ward party. There was a Chile and apple pie cook off as well as a carnival. Haley got a lot of candy. She even won the "cutest princess" award. She was so excited for the party she wore her dress for most of the day.

Space mountain

There are a few funny things about this space mountain picture. #1 Jasons face #2 You can hardly see Carson and Nathans heads. After the ride both of the kids eyes were huge. They were holding on to the bar in front of them for dear life. Carson said, "I didn't like that ride" and Nathan just started crying when it was all over. The kids were tramatized!

Disneyland cont....

Haley on the "C" in front of California adventure.
the 3-D show "Bugs Life"
Haley on Grandpas shoulders at the parade.
Now I know this pictrue is a little fuzzy, but this is Haley getting sooo exicted because she sees the pricnesses coming in the parade. She kept saying, "Oh my goodness...I can't believe this!" This was probably the hightlight of the whole trip. It is so fun to see her so excited.
The whole crew in front of the castle.

Disneyland 2007

We went to Disneyland this week with my brother Kevins family and my parents. We had such a great time. The kids are the perfect age. This is a picture at the airport. Carson, my mom and Haley waiting to get on the airplane.
Here is Jason on the plane. It was the smallest plane I have ever been on. Only 15 rows. Haley loved the plane ride.
You would never believe who would have bought the kids theis lollypops....Grandpa Sherm. Who would have thought he's a dentist. He would have never let me get one of these scukers growing up but I guess that is the beauty of being a Grandpa and spoiling his grandkids. The kids loved them!
Jason and Haley in front of the "California" sign....can you see it there in the back.?
We went to 2 3-D shows. The first one was a "muppet" show, which Haley loved. The second one was the "Bugs Life" ... Haley freaked out at this one. It was pretty scary for small kids. Any of you that have seen it know what I am talking about.

...the happiest place on earth!

This is a typical picture of all of us waiting in line for the kids favorite ride "Monsters Inc." I think we rode it about 5 or 6 times. Thanks to my mom, since her knees are bad, brought a wheelchair and got to the front of the line on most rides.

So Haley hates all characters at Dinsneyland. She freaks out if they come anywhere near her. The princesses, on the other hand, she loves!! This is Pocahontas telling Haley that her "eyes are the color of the sky and the water, and how pretty her hair is, that the racoon would love to braid it!" They really get into character!!
Grandpa Sherman and Haley trying on Minnie Mouse ears in the Disney store.
We rode the carosel a lot of times.
I will post more pictures another day.
