July 4th and Our big 5yr old!

Well, we had a fantastic 4th of July!! We spent about 3hrs at the pool, having a jumping contest and just playing around. It was so fun!! After that we had dinner with my parents, Brent and the Elders. My dad fixed his fabulous hamburgers and grilled brats as well. Then my mom made homemade pie, yum yum!! After dinner we headed out to the fireworks. I love fireworks, and I look forward to seeing them every year on the 4th and at the NC State Fair. So, I was extremely disappointed when a big storm came through and they cancelled the show:( We were already there, chairs up, blanket out and we could just see the clouds rolling in. We did however see a good lighting display:) I hope you enjoy the slide show

My Hailey is growing up..she is now 5yrs old!! It really doesn't seem possible to me that I have a 5yr old. Hailey is such a wonderful girl, so caring and loving. She is a great blessing in our family! Hailey was so excited for her birthday and couldn't wait for the day to come. She picked cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and after breakfast went upstairs to get her "pretty" clothes on. Then I took her to the mall to get a stuffed kitty at The Bear Mill (exactly like Build-a-bear). After that we went shopping and she picked out an outfit, then we got some cookies for later. When we got home, Stephen was waiting to take the kids to my parents house, while I finished the cake and wrapping presents. My parents had their house set up like a theater for Hailey,Kaleb and Sean. They loved it!!! They got tickets and everything. When the movie was done everyone came back to our house for pizza,presents and cake!! Hailey got pretty much everything she wanted, plus a few surprises...like a guitar!! She loves that thing, and plays it all the time. Uncle Kyle is teaching her how to play. Overall is was a AWESOME day for an AWESOME girl! Hope you enjoy the slide show:)

Hollyn KEEPS asking me for a guitar. She's been asking since her 4th b-day and every year I say, I don't think you'd play it. I guess I'm wrong. Maybe she should get one for Christmas. I'll consider it. Tell Hail's Happy B-day for us!
