My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Thursday Thirteen
Thirteen Things I Need to Do Before Christmas

Finish Wrapping Santa Presents
Get cards
Plan the Christmas Dinner Menu (dairy-free of course)
Buy a ham and all the other foods I decide on for Christmas Dinner
Get out the cup and plate for Santa’s soy milk and cookies
Get out the Santa Key – it’s a special key that we hang from the front door so he can get in since we do no have a fire place
Have the girls make Christmas Cards for family
Make some cookies with Kayla for Christmas
Convince Kayla that letting Santa bring presents is a GOOD thing :)
Go through their current toys to make room for their loot-to-be
Finish wrapping family presents with Kayla’s “help”

Great list! You sound like you have a lot to do! I like #13 the best. I need to wrap, wrap, wrap, myself. I seem to never be without children until I'm too tired to move, so maybe I can do it this weekend. Have a wonderful Thursday:)

Good luck with everything on your list. :) I need to finish wrapping my husband's gifts. Enjoy your Christmas. :)

Happy T13. :)

Wrapping? I haven't even finished shopping let alone started the wrapping? Good thing you have "help" =)

A santa key...that's a GREAT idea (and it gets around that going down the chimney thing)

I'm lactose intolerant so I can appreciate the fact that you are having a dairy-free Xmas! Everyone in my family are big cheese lovers. This gets to be a hard time of year for me due to all the dairy-laden foods. Ugh.

My 13 are up.

Good luck with getting everything done!!
