She's 4 Now!!!

January 10, 2005 Our sweet baby girl Alyssa was welcomed into the world!!!
Then she turned 1 :)
Then she turned 2 and played soccer with Dad!
Then she turned 3 and went crazy!!!
And Now She's 4. I can't really believe it, everyone tells you enjoy every moment because it goes fast and well, there right about that. (Ry and I made this cake together. It was a lot of fun)
We have wonderful friends who opened up there home/pool to host a pool party for Lys's B-day!
This was interesting all the sudden I turned around and Ryan was pulling everyone in the pool while they held onto a water noodle!!! It was pretty stinkin funny!
Look out below!
Daddy and the Birthday girl havin a ball, these two are so cute together!
There she is my big girl, happy Birthday Lys! We love you and have cherished every second with you. You are a blessing to our family and you are a beautiful girl inside and out.

The Haircut.

It's been 4 years and I have not touched this child's hair, not even a trim.
We mentioned the idea when her hair really took off growing that maybe she could grow it long one day and donate to kids who are sick and have no hair, as soon as we mentioned it she was all about it. This has been a long time coming though I think we mentioned it to her when she was 2 and 1/2 maybe 3. We knew the time was coming as it was getting really long, (down to her bum when it was wet) so we asked if she wanted to do it around her birthday and she liked that idea! So the day before her B-day after pre-school the whole fam went over to Great Clips who does Locks of Love cuts for free and finally went through with it.

I was getting really attached to this beautiful hair. Sweet girl, she was so calm.
Here is the point that I really lost it and started bawling. Since I've never cut it that was her actual baby hair she was born with, thanks a lot to whichever friend of mine made that point. I don't usually think that deep but when that was pointed out to me it made me cry that much harder.

As I'm wiping tears away (husband next to me consoling me) Alyssa still remains calm as a cucumber and says "Mom, Everything's gonna be okay", "Mom, are you okay" , Mom, don't cry it's okay" "Okay mom it's gonna be alright". I eventually pulled my hormonal self together.... how embarrasing.
We are soooooo proud of this kid and the kind heart she's developed for others. Way to go Alyssa and we loooove her new look.

New Year's Day (whaddu do?!?!?) / THings I enjoy about being pregnant!

So Really..... what are your traditions on New Year's Day???? I really do want to know, anyone who knows me knows that I am not so creative but love to use other's great ideas (which I usually give full credit to the creator of the idea, promise!!!).

So New Year's Eve was spent with Ry @ home with the ladies and me chapperoning the youth dance. I waited till last min. as usual to find a sitter which is why my sweet hubby didn't come with me. Sorry about that honey, I still feel bad about that. Anywho, I didn't get home till about 1:00am so needless to say (and being pg) I was a little tired the next day.

New Year's Day Ry worked on the attic project and I worked some around the house and hung out with the kiddos. That evening feeling still tired Ry decided we should go out to dinner!!!!! YES!!! I was off the hook for the night. So we went to a local pizza joint and when we pulled up I noticed on the sign it was"family kerioke night" Oh boy oh boy oh boy...... I instantly knew this was going to be a good time and it was. So all in all it was a nice New Year's Eve and Day. I hope your's was well and that you all have a terrific New Year!!!
Wondering what I was doing trying to sing Gwen Stefani, "Hollaback Girl". They didn't have much selection so I thought I'd give it a try and it was way too fast for this chick. So I sang a little Lauren Hill and redeemed myself, on the way out the door a lady eating her pizza said your mommy has a good voice to one of the girls! Thanks lady I owe you one.
Ryan and his backup singers! Not gonna brag but he may be in the wrong line of work. Dang my husband can sing.
The girls sang together with Ry "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and did a fine job!
Here's Izzie singing Jingle Bells, rockin the mic! I was just there to keep her from swalloing it, and yes for some reason Jeapordy was playing on the TV behind her, no idea why?!?!?!
I love zits! These are always delightful little visitors that I so look forward to when I'm pg.
