Isaac turns EIGHT!

Woohoo buddy!  It's your birthday!!
Isaac asked me if we could have a birthday lunch together.  Sure thing, buddy.
I'm not going to turn down a date with my handsome guy.  McDonald's it is.

Isaac's actual birthday fell on a Saturday so it was the perfect opportunity for a party with his friends.  Since he has a winter birthday we opted to rent an indoor pool for 2 hours and it was a HIT!

Shark themed goodie bags! 
 Shark attack photo props!!! 

And 15 second-grade sharks! 

The boys got the pool to themselves for an hour then we let Chloe, Tessa, and the "three littles" join in the birthday fun.  It was a great party!   

After swimming we had a pizza party at our house for family.  
Isaac got some great gifts! 

All he requested for dessert was "Ice-cream.  Just ice-cream and toppings." 
Again, you got it buddy.   

Mason sat like such a big boy with his own bowl of ice-cream. 
He was so content doing it all by himself!  Love these boys! 


This boy.  He has such a big piece of my heart! 
Isaac, you are so caring and thoughtful to your momma.  I love that about you. 
You are ornery, funny, and have recently started laughing at your own flubs & goofs and you are such a happy person.  You let things roll off of your shoulders now and don't take everything so personally.  That shows us growth and maturity.  You are the happiest second grader around! 

I hope all your wishes come true!
(especially since I accidently bought trick candles so you had to 'wish' three or four times!)
Seriously --  I truly did not read the package and that lead to many laughs.

Starting January 2016

Hays did receive snow on a couple occasions that warranted some good ole' snowball fights.  FINALLY this winter the kids actually stayed outside LONGER than it took to get dressed in snow gear.  They really did have fun! 

Chloe participated in her first out of town tumbling meet.  She executed her passes very well.  She was a level 7, which meant her passes were Round-off and 3 back handsprings and then a round-off and 2 back handsprings.  She has great momentum, just needs to work on the clean lines. 

The Broncos made it to the Super Bowl!
Since the last Super Bowl party we had two years ago was a BUST (thanks to the Broncos) Robynn & Dustin offered to host this year and we had SOOO much fun!  This group is the best.

Mase-man hijacked my phone!

Robynn and I also took a day to take the kids to Grandma Pfannenstiel's farm. 
The new shed sure changes the landscape but it will be very nice for all of the equipment. 

I'm so glad we got Great-Grandma to sit still and smile!!
