Ryan was out of town for work the week of Haley's birthday, so we didn't have her birthday dinner and cake until the weekend when Ryan got back. But for the actual day of her birthday she chose to go to an early movie (Wonder Woman) and then walk over to the mall right after.
Haley and Morgan spent the morning getting ready for their girly outing.
Haley even curled Morgan's hair!
Haley showing off some of the things she bought at the mall: cat ears and false eyelashes.
What a great age to be...when you can wear flower cat ears and HUGE false eyelashes and look cute as a button.
After dinner my parents and I took the kids to Riverwoods for a Dole Whip.
And of course it didn't take long for the kids to getting soaking wet in the splash pad.
We had a family dinner later that week with my parents and my brother's family.
Haley requested a pasta bar and that everything is pink!
Even the drinks.
I found this picture on my phone that Haley must have taken showing her birthday gifts: new pretty (pink) pajamas, pink purse, pink donut headphones, pink lip glosses and a HUGE poster of Audrey Hepburn that she has been dying to have.
Haley is the girliest girl I know.
She loves all things pink! She loves makeup, clothes, and accessorizing. She adores animals...before she turned 12 she made a commitment to be a vegetarian and hasn't looked back since. She's strong, determined and very independent! She loves art, singing and dance and I admire her bravery when it comes to performing on a stage.
She is growing up so fast!
We love our Haley Girl!
