Our baby is 1!

I can't believe it has only been one year since Hailey entered our lives. Already we cannot imagine life without her.
Hailey loves:

her bottle - she carries it everywhere and sucks on it even if it is empty.

going outside - she is no longer content to play at my feet while I do the dishes or fix dinner. If the door opens she yells to go outside with the big kids.

fishy crackers - since she loves her bottle so much she doesn't eat much solid food but she loves goldfish.

climbing on the table - she is a monkey, and she has no fear.

talking to dad on the phone - or should I say listening to her dad on the phone. She lights up at the sound of his voice.

She is growing up too fast. Usually during family prayer she just toddles around and we don't pay much attention to her as long as she is being quiet. Tonight after we said the prayer I looked back at her and she was standing there with her little arms folded looking at us. It was so cute. Then she started clapping because she could tell we were all so thrilled with her for folding her arms. I guess it is time to start including her in saying our prayers.

Happy Birthday Hailey! We love you!

Fall decorations are up!

I love fall. I love pumpkins, pumkin pie, pumkin rolls, pumpkin cookies. Oh, you get the idea. Not only does fall put me in the mood to bake but I get a serious case of the crafties. Meaning, all I want to do is stay inside where it is warm and make something crafty. Let me tell you, I have a list a mile long of things I want to make. First on the list is halloween costumes for the kiddos. Can't wait to show you what we are working on there, but it will have to wait until halloween.

I have been selling some scrapbook pages on ebay. I will have to link to them later when I have more time but if you would like to go take a look you can search for "premade scrapbook pages by Amber".

Happy fall y'all!
