Grocery Shopping
Hayden and I went grocery shopping yesterday morning. She decided to help me bring the bags in! Also, check out her second toe on her left foot. That always seems to happen when she wears these sandals. Not sure how or why she does it!

This morning it was all about her bunny ears that she got from pop and grandma for Easter.

Blowing Bubbles!?
Hayden loves bubbles. She doesn't really understand what to do with the bubble wand yet. The problem is that they make bubbles smell so good you just want to eat them! And if you are a 1 1/2 years old you are going to try!

Cage Buddies
Jeremy sent this picture to me today while I was at work! He was in the family room finishing up his breakfast. He knew that Hayden was in the laundry room with Mazie, but he had no idea what he would find when he walked in there! She crawled in there to hang out with Mazie!

And to top it off, she was hand feeding Mazie her dog food!

Easter at Pop and Grandma's
We had a big lunch after church and then an Easter egg hunt for the kids and adults. Jackson wasn't happy about something!

Blake and Hayden spending some time with Great-grandma.

Hayden found the kitty cat!


All of the kids got 3 different Easter baskets! Talk about tons of candy for the parents!


Eggs, eggs, eggs!


The little princess didn't reach in the bushes for this Easter egg hunt either!

Aunt Jamie is showing Blake where to find some eggs.

Happy Easter!
One of the teachers at Hayden's preschool took Easter pictures of the children this year! That is a real bunny!





Don't send a lame Easter eCard. Try JibJab Sendables!
It's Official!
Hayden has spent the last two nights in her big bed. No fuss, no waking in the middle of the night, no nothing! She has been taking naps in there for the past 5 days. She does get out of bed at the beginning of some naps, but we put her right back in and she falls asleep! What an easy transition this has been!

Easter Goodies

We are going over to Jeff and Jan's tomorrow for a family Easter lunch. I said I would make some sort of Easter dessert. Here it is, good old carrot cake. And.....

I just had to do something for the kids and big kids! These are called Easter Bunny Racers.

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt
One of our neighbors invited us over for a neighborhood Easter egg hunt this afternoon. It was her grandson's birthday so she made it one big event with a birthday cake, Easter eggs, the resurrection story using resurrection eggs, party favors..... It was very fun and we're glad we went.
Here is Hayden with one of the little girls that lives on our street. She's only 3 weeks younger than Hayden. All Hayden wanted to do was hug her, but Abby wasn't so sure about it.

She did a great job of finding Easter eggs, we were surprised.

She didn't like to reach into the bushes to get them. So, she would point, we would reach in and put it somewhere else, and she would get it.

Here are some other children finding eggs. There were probably 12 children there!

Still Lovin' That Hat!
After Hayden woke up from her THREE hour nap this afternoon one of the first things she wanted to do was put on her parade hat!
Easter Parade Video

Easter Parade!
Finally, the day has arrived. All of the students and teachers have been eagerly awaiting this day. All of the preschool children march or ride around the entire church (wearing the hats that they have made) while their parents stand, take pictures, and cheer them on! It's the weekday preschool's annual Easter parade!
Hayden's class is in the wagons. She's in the second wagon.

What a little cow girl!

She's sitting next to her buddy KJ. Twins Skye and Skylar are across from her in the wagon.

Some of the 3 year olds.

Some of the 4 year olds.

Dancing Doll

Watch Hayden's face as she watches the Dancing Doll video on the computer. She is closing her eyes because that's what the doll does after she finishes dancing!

Hayden's First Hair Cut!

(no more mullet....I hung on to that Pittsburgh style for as long as I could)

My arm gets in the way during the cutting, but I wanted all of you to see the trouble I had getting a 1 1/2 year old to keep her head still. I had no idea it would be that difficult!!!

Breakfast with the Bear
This morning Hayden wanted to eat breakfast with one of her favorite bears. That is daddy's cereal spoon, she doesn't really use that big of a spoon to eat!

Hanging with Grady!

First Nap in the Big Bed
Hayden wasn't so sure about actually sleeping in this big bed at first. But she ended up falling asleep and taking a nice long nap.

Exploring the Big Girl Bed!!!
When Hayden woke up from her afternoon nap we showed her the new bed! As you can see in the first picture, she was pretty sleepy at first. But then she went crazy!!

Spring Weather
We decided to take some outside pictures since the weather was so nice today.


The Closet is Done!
Here is a video of Hayden's thoughts about the finished closet that daddy has been working so hard on the past few days.

This is Some Crazy Stuff!!
I was out in the garage painting our new closet door and Jerm was in the laundry room working on the closet....all of a sudden I thought I heard hail coming down. I called to Jerm because our trucks were parked outside. He pulled them in just in time! Check it out! By the way, I really do know the difference between a nickle and a dime-I was just really caught up in the moment!

An Artist at Work
Hayden's big girl room isn't finished yet, but we are making progress! Daddy is building a closet in the laundry room so that we have some place to store things. When that's done we'll move in the bed!
Here is the art corner of Hayden's room. She is working hard to color Easter pictures for some special people! With this new art corner I think she'll be done with the coloring in time for Easter!

Mommy's REAL Name
Daddy and Hayden were calling for me this afternoon but I didn't hear them because I was listening to the radio and doing the dishes. Daddy decided to call "Trista" since I wasn't answering to Mommy. Hayden picked up on it.....as you can see!

Night Time Routine
Here is a video of some of what goes on each night in the Ross home.

About 22 Weeks Pregnant
Johnny asked for a "belly picture" because he wasn't even sure if I would be showing by this point in my pregnancy. So, here it is and YES I am showing....a little more than I was at this point with Hayden. Some seem to think that I may be having twins because I am showing so much! Just one little girl in there!
Smile because it's a beautiful day today!

Hayden loves to be outside when the weather is nice.

Dance Moves
Here are just a few of Hayden's dance moves. And she loves to move! During the last 15 minutes of preschool Hayden's teacher puts on a dance CD and all the 1 year olds dance around the room. Hayden tries to hold hands with the other kids so she can dance with them!

Puppies!!!
I know that this is Hayden's blog, but I just had to share this exciting news. Mom and Bernie have two silky terriers-one male and one female. Well, they now have three puppies! Two girls and a boy. Sadie had her puppies this morning. They are all doing well. Mom and Bernie are planning on keeping all of the puppies! They will now have 7 dogs!!!

Slinky Fun
Grandma and Pop Ross had a HUGE moving sale this weekend. They tried to sell just about everything they own since they are moving to Kenya in a few months. Hayden found many treasures at the moving sale, but right now this slinky is her favorite.

Working Hard
The three of us have been working hard to change the office into Hayden's bedroom. It's still a work in progress as you can see. Hayden discovered daddy's work glasses and had to put them on. What a goof!

Making Pizzas
Tonight Hayden was helping me put the cheese on the mini pizzas that I was making for dinner. I ran to get the video camera and she must have had a taste. Because when I started to video she wasn't interested in putting the cheese on the pizza anymore...it all went to her mouth! Check it out.

Morning Potty Time
This morning Moo decided to come in the bathroom while Hayden was on the potty. Hayden loved the company! Moo just rubbed up against Hayden feet and tickled them.

Hayden prefers to have nothing on while she is using the potty....

We had a busy day today. First we met with Whitney for lunch and then we went to a sale with grandma. Grandma bought Hayden and the new sister all kinds of stuff. We just couldn't pass up this butterfly bikini for the Florida trip this summer!

And the back view.....

Hayden got these shades when she was just born, and they are now just fitting her.....kind of!
