Hailey’s 8th Birthday Party

October 12th, 2014 Melanie Posted in Celebrations, Hailey No Comments »

I can not believe that Hailey is already 8 years old.  It makes me so sad when I think about how fast these last 8 years have gone by because I know the next 8 will be even faster.  Anyway, here are some pictures from Hailey’s 8th birthday party.


Hailey’s Frozen themed birthday cake.


The tables all decorated

Hailey is 8 Years Old

October 10th, 2014 Melanie Posted in Growing Up, Hailey, Monthly Updates No Comments »


Hailey is 8 years old!


When Hailey got up on her birthday she picked one present to open.


We went out to dinner at the Olive Garden to celebrate her birthday.


Hailey and Harper


Opening presents


Hailey and her new American Girl doll, Isabelle.

Hailey is now 4 feet, 3 1/2 inches tall!  When did she get so big?  It seems like she is almost as tall as me.

Hailey is in 3rd grade and doing great.  We are in our 2nd year of homeschooling and it is going very well.  Hailey is a very hard worker and a fast learner and does very well in school.

Hailey is a wonderful big sister.  She plays so well with Hunter- of course they have their moments, but they usually play very well together.  She is fantastic with Harper and is such a big helper to me.

I sure do love my little miss :-)
