Happy 4th Birthday Haylie!

For Haylie's Birth Day we let her decide what we did for the day:)
We started out skating at the rink and getting her private lesson from her favorite coach, Holly.
Some of the family us able to join us at Peter Piper for some lunch and that was such a treat.
Haylie loves to see her cousins so this was perfect for her. She played a ton of games and enjoyed a red velvet cupcake made by mom. Always the best when I make them....right;)
After 4 1/2 hours at Peter Piper we headed home for a nap.
Then we were off to Chili's for some more family fun. Haylie was so funny. When the waitress gave Haylie her brownie sundae she thought she was on top of the world! When I asked to take a bite she told me," The lady said this is for the birthday girl, sorry!" I did end of with a few bites but it took a lot of begging.
I think we were all pooped by the end of the day.

James loves to spend time with his grandpa and they dominated that skee ball:)
They determined to hit the jackpot....and they did!!!
Haylie and Emalie knew exactly how many tickets these adults needed to win to get them what they wanted!
Mommy and Daddy feel so lucky to have you as our little princess. You are such a sweet and bright little girl. We love watching you grow and seeing your personality form.
You will always be our little girl:)

Christmas Day

Christmas is always big deal at our house. The kids look forward to the next year the day after Christmas! The tradition in our house is for the kids to come to our room and they have to wait for us to go see what Santa has left. We don't have the typical kids that are up at 6am begging to go out and see the presents. We always have to wake up at least one of them. This year it was James and Haylie. It was 9:00 when we decided it was time that everyone got up. James and Haylie were both begging to sleep just a little longer!
Here they are running from our room to see!

After that we head to the living room to see if Santa filled the stocking.
Yep, he sure did! And he drank the milk and had a few cookies.
That always puts a smile on the kids face:)

Another tradition, pic in front of the tree with the gifts.

Of course we have to get the pic with all of the gifts from grandma!

A new family tadition has started this year. Crab legs for Christmas dinner!
Now that's a tradition worth staring,right!!!
Grandma Anna, Uncle Billy, and Grandpa & Grandma Cox joined us for dinner and it was FANTASTIC!!! We ate crab till we almost exploded.
We hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.
We couldn't have asked for a better one this year!
Time with the ones we love made is just perfect:)
Merry Christmas,
The Boothroyd's

Haylie's School Christmas Party

Haylie always looks forward to any party but she was extra excited for her class Christmas party. She got to make a gingerbread house, eat some yummy food and desserts and they had a book exchange. As usual some of the kids wanted their own books. Of course Haylie was one of them. She helped me wrap it and was so excited to put it under the tree at school. When it was time open them she was all smiles. She got HER book and we had to read it right way!
It was a great party and Haylie sure enjoyed herself:)

Kayla's Double Digits!!!

Can you believe Kayla is in the double digits!!! I know I can't:) If she gets older than I get older. I'm thinking we should just stop now and call it good!

Kayla decided on an Alice in Wonderland party this year.
Anna and I had too much fun organizing this party. Every time we would see each other (which is often) we would come of with more changes and ideas. Even down to the few days prior to the party while we were decorting and making another list for the store!
In order to pull this one off were decorated the house for
THREE days!
In the end, it was well worth it:)

Before the party I had a photo shot with Kayla in her party dress. Kayla and Grandmom Anna designed it together based on the dress Alice wore in the movie. I must say it was AMAZING!
She was so beautiful in it and she did a fabulous job during the photo shot.

The party decorations were perfect. All of the tables were arranged in a u shape so that all the girls could enjoy watching the new Alice in Wonderland movie on the big screen during the party. As each of the girls arrived they found their place setting at the table and started on their very own Mad Hatter hat. I must say the girls did a fantastic job!

After taking some pictures the girls came back to the table for some lunch and desserts. They each received small tea sandwiches with a few sides and then some tasty treats!

Here's the cake Kayla designed! Too Cute:)

Thanks to Anna the decorations were TOO perfect.
In between the mushrooms around the entire were room were roses with faces, characters from the movie and many other details from the movie. All around the room we had clocks with different times on them and framed pics of Kayla and the characters from the movie. At the table there were more framed pictures from Kayla's photo shoot, little hats filled with goodies, candles, adorable pots with flowers and much more!
Here's a few pics. Unfortunatly all of my cards were full and my computer was not working to clear them. I had to rely on everyone else for pics. Thanks you guys!

A big THANK YOU for everyone who was able to attend Kayla's party.
She had the time of her life and was so happy to have so many wonderful friends with her!
Happy 10th Birthday Kayla!
We love you, Mom and Dad
