Festival of Lights at Moody Gardens

This past saturday we went to Moody Gardens Festival of Lights. Its all about the holidays and lots and lots and lots of lights. They had Santa pictures too. It was a really nice time. We dressed Hailey in her Holiday outfit. A cold front had come in so it was rather cold for us. I got out mine and Hailey's winter coats, made sure Hailey had a had and mittens, and I had gloves. Glenne for some reason did think the weather reports were right and wore shorts, sandals and a windbreaker jacket. He regreted that decision.

Hailey with Santa. We had 2 other options, but the big hug was the best of the bunch.
Our Christmas card picture...for some reason it seems blurry int he print outs. sorry :(

The Nativity Scene...they did the whole story in lights every five minutes

Lights by the ice rink.....Hailey was so excited to see the ice skaters and wanted to skate. I have only done it once for 2 min....and Daddy was just not ready to get out on the ice with himself and his child...not enough confidence. I am just scared to get out there.

Humming Bird......Hailey's favorite
Fisherman....the fish was not lighting up though :(
Archangels with trumpets
Pirate...you know Hailey loved this one
Pirate Ship...If I zoomed out any more you would not have seen Hailey! :)

Enjoy....we did.

Just some soccer fun

This past saturday the kids seemed pretty happy to have Coach Shawn back, since he missed last saturday. Coach Shawn seemed to be really enjoying it..but he always seems to.

At one point all the kids just jumped on the Coach....he is under there somewhere

Hailey and Kailey ......yes...almost the same name...both the slowest runners and seem to gravitate to each other...and birthdays are a less then 2 wks apart.
This was one team....Hailey is # 10 against the others

Halloween Night

So Hailey was Ariel the Little Mermaid Princess for Halloween (red wig and all!). Ariel is currently her favorite Princess. It was a warm Halloween here in Spring. Even after the sun went down we still did not need a jacket. We went to visit Meme and Grandad first then came back to our house and met up with Kandi, Chris, and Kenzie. Jill and her furbaby Jackson also came along to walk around with us.

Here is our Princess Ariel all ready to go trick or treating.

It was an after thought to get a picture of Hailey and Kenzie together and the sun had already gone down.

On the friday before Halloween Hailey's old teacher Miss Amy had a little party at her house. I got done work early and picked up Hailey from school and we headed over there. Miss Amy is watching 2 of Hailey's old classmates and Hailey was happy to see them. ( Miss Amy was watching Hailey after school while Meme and Grandad were away so Hailey was so so excited for this little party) It was a fun afternoon. The kids were so excited about dressing up.
Skyler was a Power ranger and way too cool to stop and look for a picture.
Bella on the other hand asked me to take her picture...Hailey joined in...a big first!! (love Hailey's face)
such beautiful girls
