Haley, Haley, and More Haley
Did I mention this post is all about Haley? We had some snow a couple of Sundays ago. Not much, but enough to just barely dust the ground. As we drove past the rolling hills and farmland on our way to church, Haley gasped. We looked at her. She was wide eyed and pointing at the big round hay bales, their tops covered in white snow. "Those look just like that cereal!" she exclaimed. "You mean Frosted Mini-wheats?" Kelsee clarified. "Yeah, just like those!" What an imagination! She often points out clouds as we drive, telling us what object or animal they look like to her. Or she'll see scribbles on a piece of paper or a blanket piled up on the bed and tell us that it looks like something to her. As soon as she points it out, of course, it's obvious. Pretty amazing. ------ Cameron and I rented The Incredible Hulk last week, which meant Haley wanted to rent a movie, too. She chose the original cartoon "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I told her she could watch it the next day. Needless to say, when we got home from church, she bounded into the house exclaiming, "Let's watch The Grunch! Let's watch The Grunch RIGHT NOW!" ------ A while back Haley was snuggling with Kelsee while they flipped through a magazine. They came to an advertisement that prompted Haley to blurt out: "Hey that looks like Grandma Kappes!" Kelsee and I ROARED with laughter after we scanned the picture: ------ The other day, Haley had just finished making some very astute observation. Kelsee responded by telling the curly-haired imp how smart she was. Haley smiled sweetly at Kelsee and said "I save all my good thinking for you, Mommy." Don't you just love kids?
