Snow Day 2015

All Winter Zoey talked about snow and how she wanted a snow day, to make snow angel, build a snowman, etc.  We would always explain to her that we would have to wait and see if it snowed and how it might not snow. 

The end of February we were forecasted to get 5-6 inches of snow.  I had major doubts.  Good thing I was wrong!  Zoey was so excited about the snow!  She couldn’t wait to get out in it and play.  I was able to hold her off until it had accumulated several inches.

First Hair Cut

After putting it off for as long as I could, Zoey got her first hair cut in January.  I was so afraid that if I had her hair trimmed, the curls would fall out.  We have been lucky that her hair has grown fast and even!  I made it three years before I got it trimmed.  I was a little nervous how she would do and was afraid she would cry or throw a fit.  She did AWESOME!  We went to Phipps Salon, B and I both go there, where Melissa cut her hair.  Bragging moment.  Everyone there was so impressed with how well she behaved and sat/stood still. Typically three year olds do not do as well.  Her hair was so long, Melissa had her stand instead of sit in the chair to trim it.  When it’s wet and brushed out it’s almost down to her waist.

4D Farms

We headed back to 4D Farms again during the Fall.  We took the nieces with us again.  Zoey took a LONG time to warm up this year.  She got freak out by a blow up pumpkin.  It was really windy that day and she was afraid it was coming for her.  After she got used to it, she had a blast!

Caldonia Farms

Oops, got a little out of order!  I forgot we went to two farms/pumpkin patches this year!  We went to Caldonia Farms with Dennis and Nona one weekend while we were in Aberdeen.  The farm is just outside of Columbus.  I had never been, Dennis and Nona took Zoey last year when she was with them one weekend.  It is a beautiful place.  So much for the little ones to do and incredible section of different pumpkins, gourds, mums, and more!

Christmas 2014

We had a wonderful, busy Christmas season!  I’ll leave you with highlights and pictures!

We went back to Worthey Tree farm to get our Christmas tree.  This year we went early and picked it out for later pick up.  The Wests went with us.

We decorated Christmas cookies for Santa!  This is one of my favorite traditions we have.  I remember doing the same thing when I was a kid and I LOVE that I get to share this with Zoey.

Zoey passed out after a long day on Christmas Eve

After a long fun day, she passed out on the couch.  Her and Daddy had a date before during the day to finish up Christmas shopping and to give me time to finish up a few last minute things.
