Brooke’s Graduation Party

June 27th, 2010 Melanie Posted in Brooke, Family, Hailey, Me, Rich No Comments »

Last weekend was Brooke’s graduation party.  It’s so hard to believe that she’s already done with high school.  The years went by way too fast!  I spent most of the party keeping an eye on Hailey while she played on the playground and went swimming, so I didn’t get many pictures of Brooke.  Thankfully Brooke’s mom got some good pictures so I’m going to post her pictures.

So, I don’t know how it happened- but just a few short years ago- this was Brooke:

And now just a couple of weeks ago Brooke was looking amazing and all grown up on her way to the prom:

Christmas Day Part 2

January 15th, 2010 Melanie Posted in Brooke, Celebrations, Family, Hailey, Me, Rich 2 Comments »

Last week I posted about Christmas morning and now I have finally had some time to upload some more pictures from later in the day.  In the afternoon, my parents, Mike, Matt and Ellie all came over for Christmas dinner.  (Some of these pictures were taken by me, some by my dad and some by Ellie.)

Then it was time to open some more presents.

Then it was time to go to the garage to see Hailey’s last present.  (Thanks to Ellie for getting these pictures of Hailey’s face as she realized what it was.)

Hailey realized what she was looking at and that it was for her!

Checking out her new log house.  It will have to stay in the garage for now until the snow is gone and it can be set up outside.

We finished off the evening with snacks and games.  Lots of fun times together with the family!

Christmas Day

January 3rd, 2010 Melanie Posted in Brooke, Celebrations, Dottie, Family, Hailey 3 Comments »

After a fun evening on Christmas Eve spent celebrating at my Aunt Winnie’s house we came home and Hailey went right to bed.  She was too tired to try to stay awake waiting for Santa.

Soon after Hailey went to sleep Santa stopped by to deliver some gifts.

Hailey actually slept in a bit on Christmas morning until about 7am.  Then she came in to tell me and Rich that is was morning.

She walked out to the living room and saw that Santa had brought her some presents.

I know this picture turned out blurry- but Hailey is showing off the gift that she made at preschool for me and Rich for Christmas.  She was so proud of it and I was excited because it’s the first homemade Christmas present I have from her that I didn’t help her make.

Hailey opening up her Achoo Baby- she asked for this doll every time someone asked her what she wanted for Christmas.

And of course Dottie got some presents too.

After we opened our presents from Santa we went over to Rich’s parents’ house for more gift giving.  I didn’t take any pictures while we were there.  Later my parents, brothers and sister-in-law came over to our house for dinner and more presents.  I’ll post those pictures in another post.
