happy birthday to our Hailey

We have noticed that Hailey is starting to look older these days.

She's not a tiny little girl anymore.

She's seven today, so hard to believe.


Here's some October Afternoon and American Crafts; page made a couple years ago after our Disneyland trip. The rest of these are old layouts, too, but it's fun to look at them now and then. And, a lot of them most of you have probably never seen before.

It took two years for us to be able to have her but she sure has been worth the wait.

She's smart, helpful, a beautiful singer and artist, quite the little scrapbooker and is always willing to try new things even if they're hard for her. She wasn't a natural soccer player last fall but she stuck it out and is going to play again this fall. She got to sing a solo in our children's program at church and I was amazed at how poised she was.

She's shy in a group but wild and crazy at home.

She's the organizer and the task master, sensitive at times and silly at others.

She loves to hula hoop, do gymnastics, loves to sing and draw and make up songs.

She's a fantastic reader, a great speller, quite the little smarty pants.

She is a perfectionist and sometimes gets down on herself if she can't do something as well as she'd like.

What she doesn't realize is how amazing she is.

We love her so much.

Happy birthday, Hailey.
