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.

Happy Thanksgiving
I've been slowly making the rounds in between visitors and getting ready for Thanksgiving. Although I'm enjoying the company, it will be nice when things slow down next week.

I took the girls to Hallmark this past weekend to get their Christmas ornaments. Alysa picked out a Thomas the Tank one and Kayla got one with Mickey and friends riding on a train - yes it moves. It was a bit more than I planned on, but better than the $44 one she wanted initially. ;) Now she keeps asking me where her tree is. I'm having a hard time holding her off until after Alysa's party.

We went to a birthday party on Saturday which was...interesting... It was at a play place, but it was not what I expected. It was a HUGE maze of tunnels all up high at ceiling level. Thankfully my Mom was there to help police the food, although I'm sure she's not happy. I couldn't accompany both girls in the tunnels (and they both needed someone with them with the size and tons of older kids) since they were heading in opposite directions and WAY too excited to listen to "Wait!". They had a blast and I ended up with bruised knees and sore arms and shoulders. But I will say it was fun. Brings you back to childhood a bit. I will post some pics when I get them all organized.

I'm just about done with my Christmas shopping. Will get the last few items Saturday with some coupons I have. So my goal of being done by Thanksgiving will have been met. Yay! Then it's just wrapping.....

We'll have 14 people for Thanksgiving this year. Our menu will be Turkey, Ham, sweat potato casserole, green beans, salad and bread. For dessert, an apple pie, rice pudding and pumpkin bread. Everything is dairy-free and home made. I will post the recipes in a few days.

This year, I'm thankful to have my family around and especially since all of them who will be here in NJ are wonderful and really do what it takes to keep Kayla safe. So it will be a nice fun week and I will so enjoy seeing Kayla and Alysa getting all this time with their cousins.

I hope everyone has a great week and a great Thanksgiving!

Those tunnel things drive me crazy. Our amusement park has something like that and I freak out everytime Marky goes in them. It's hard for me to go in after him, but I do. I'm always afraid he'll go in and disappear. Your dinner sounds yummy and I hope every one has a wonderful day ( I know they will). Looking foward to recipes :) Happy Thanksgiving!!
