Life is good around the Simons house. Spring is in the air, which means longer days, warmer weather and a lot more time outdoors. Haley and Trey LOVE the outdoors. Haley’s got a big birthday coming up. 4 years old! Laura’s been planning like crazy to get ready for it. We’re going to go to a place that has horses and she’s going to have a Jessie Toy Story birthday party.
We were only able to invite a handful of people to that location so we’re going to have another small get together on March 6th – Haley’s real birthday. Yours truly did the invitations:
I know what you’re thinking. Wow, Hayden…you’re a whiz in photoshop. Yes. I know I am!
Haley’s really excited to finally be more than three and three quarters old.
Trey has been a handful and is getting to be more and more fun. He’s all over the place and tries to go outside every time the door opens. Cold weather hasn’t seemed to bother him. He just wants to go out.
We had a photo shoot the other night for Haley. She chose to dress up in her Pocahontas outfit. Haley wanted to dress Trey up a little so she put a bow in his hair. Poor guy, between Haley and the new girl that is on the way, he won’t stand a chance.
I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of it yet, but when Trey is tired or sleeps, he sucks his middle two fingers instead of his thumb. It’s really pretty funny. Towards the end of the night, he was getting tired…so I got a few pictures of that too. Cute guy!
Laura’s doing well with the pregnancy. She’s finally over the nausea. From here on, it will just be a waiting game. We haven’t decide yet on “bud 3’s” name, but we’ve got one that we’re gravitating towards. Not sure if it is going to stick though. Only problem is, 2 of our friends have a daughter with the same name. Oh well.
Haley and I went on a special date this past Friday night. Germantown Center hosted a Daddy-Daughter dance. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I knew the time would be great since I’d be spending it with my special girl.
Haley was one of the youngest there. I’d say most of the girls were between 6 and 8 years old. They had light snacks and a chocolate fountain. Of course, Haley ONLY wanted to eat from the chocolate fountain. chocolate chip cookies dipped in chocolate seemed to be the favorite. Haley wasn’t much into dancing, but we did enjoy playing some hide and seek. It was a lot of fun to watch her interact with the other girls there. She wasn’t scared to just walk right up to them and start talking.
She got a special treat when she realized that here to favorite princesses were there. Two teenage girls had dressed up as Belle and Snow White and were giving out hand stamps and perfume sprays. Haley was in heaven.
The end of the night was topped off with a “candy bar” which was essentially a buffet of candy fit for a princess. They handed out little baggies and Haley got to pick whatever she wanted off of the buffet. She loved it!
So went my first of many (but not enough) Daddy-Daughter dances. No doubt that I had the best date there!
