Last time we went to the River (I believe it was in November sometime) we went to Lowery's for lunch.  It's a local seafood type restaurant, and they happened to have this neat fishing activity for kids.  The waiter asked you if you wanted to get a coupon to go fishing, so you would take the coupon up to the person working the cash register and they would trade you for a child fishing pole.  You went to the back and "fished" out of this barrel.  You would then bring your fish up to the front to trade it in for a prize.  They had all sorts of stuff from necklaces, candy, stickers..etc.  I think Dada had more fun fishing than Hadleigh actually did :)

Hadleigh's 1st Haircut 11.12.11

I'm super late in posting about this.  I took the pictures on my cell phone and completely forgot they were there until now :)
We didn't want to cut too much of her hair, since we want it to grow long, but she needed a trim around her eyes.  The hair was pretty long in the front and it was getting into her eyes alot.  I guess I should say it was her first trim, not haircut. Oh well, all in the same.  She did really well and only whined a little.  (Excuse the pictures of me in the background - I was getting my hair done that day as well)

better picture of the end result :)

Thanksgiving 2011 (Part II)

Dinner was with my side of the family.  Hadleigh of course had so much fun with Erik and Jaxson.  We didn't eat too too much but we got some sweet potato casserole and my mom's stuffing (two of my favorites).  Can't wait til next year!

Thanksgiving 2011 (Part I)

Another Thanksgiving - and we have so much to be thankful for!!  We are lucky to be able to spend the day with both sides of our family.  Lunch was with Daniel's family at his Aunt Julie's house (which is gorgeous by the way).  Hadleigh had a lot of fun seeing everyone and then playing outside on the putting green Aunt JuJu has near her house.

Brian & Dawn's Baby Shower

The other weekend Daniel, Hadleigh, and I went to celebrate a special little boy and his parents!  Brian and Dawn have gone through a lot and I'm so happy for them to enjoy a baby boy come January :)  it was a really nice and laid back shower - all the guys were hanging out and drinking some beer and all the girls chatted and played with the little kids running around.

Cannot wait to meet baby William!

A girl and her dog...

Well, one of her dogs :)  Hadleigh was so cute the other morning.  Laying next to Isis and then hanging all on her, petting her, and tapping on her back.  Isis just sat  there so patiently and sweet and let Hadleigh do whatever the heck she wanted.  It was the sweetest thing!

Toys, Toys, and more Toys!

Daniel and I have felt like our house is consumed by toys for the past couple of months - and yes we know it's only going to get worse with age and more kids!  Since we don't need the guest bedroom we have in the back of the house, we decided to turn it into a playroom for Hadleigh.  She's such a lucky little girl :)  We ended up taking the mattresses down to my parents River House and we just stored everything else up in our attic.  Daniel and I had a lot of fun getting some extra things to make her playroom perfect.  Hadleigh loves it (follow the video link to see her first reaction of the room).  I still have a few more decorative ideas I want to add into the room, so look for updates on that (I'm using some ideas from Pinterest, so I'm really excited!)

Left side of the room.  Nana & Papa surprised all three of us with this gorgeous carousel horse!

Instead of a rug, we decided to get this foam mat of the alphabet

Wall next to the door.  We scored those "bookshelves" from GoodWill for $50! We came home to find that they're PierOne = SCORE!
Owl lamp to match the art work and wall decals

Wall decals to make it more colorful and fun

 Hadleigh really enjoyed it the next morning when she woke up.  Excuse her bedhead :)

Devilish Halloween

Hadleigh had a great Halloween starting off with a trip the The Children's Museum.  They were hosting a "Spooky Party" where the kids came in their costumes and played around the museum.  Some paces were decorated, and others had Halloween games and crafts set up.  Kristy and Lily joined us for the day and both girls seemed to really have a lot of fun.  They're both crazy walking all over the place, so a couple of times we lost Kristy & Lily :) 
Introducing Lily the KittyCat...

Introducing Hadleigh the LittleDevil...

Had to post this picture - It's one of my favorites!
Halloween night we took Hadleigh to see Nana, Papa, and Uncle Steven.  She loves seeing them and the kittycats that they have at their house.

After we left, we went to Kelli & Chey's house.  There we saw the boys and my parents, so Hadleigh got some play time in with Erik & Jaxson. 

I think next year we might attempt trick-or-treating for the first time :)
