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.

White Christmas anyone?
Alysa keeps telling me that it has to snow on Christmas. She says it has to snow so Santa can come. I keep trying to explain that he'll come even without snow. Funny how they pick up on the white Christmas bit from just the music - it certainly hasn't been white around here yet. I hope she's not too disappointed.

We went to Storybook Land today for their Christmas bit. Alysa sat on Santa's lap and got a present (a toy ring) and she saw Mrs. Claus too. Kayla refused to see him. They enjoyed the rides as usual and we stayed long enough to see for the magical lighting of the park. Hundreds of thousands of lights - it was beautiful. But we left shortly after. We arrived at 2pm and left by 5:20'ish. It was cold, bitterly cold. The high was 30 today with a breeze to match. We layered up really good, but that doesn't do much for fingers and toes even with socks and gloves. Kayla kept telling me she was frozen and her feet hurt, but she never wanted to leave. Alysa, by the time 4:30 came, was begging to leave in between her chattering teeth and shaking body (literally, no exaggeration needed). J took her in the gift shop for a while so Kayla and I could wait for the lighting (at 5pm). After that, we did 3 more rides and left. Even though my toes are still thawing out, it was worth it and we'll enjoy this annually.

I'll admit that I've never been more envious of the people who could walk around with hot chocolate before...

Now this is one big tree!

This ride used to have elephants. They change it over for this time of year - very cute!

Santa's waiving his magic wand to turn the lights on. Sorry it's so dark (click to enlarge), but my flash doesn't reach that far

Lights, lights, everywhere...

Now if I can only order some snow for Christmas Day...

The pictures are too cute!! I'm glad the girls had fun. I hear you about the hot chocolate. At the grocery they have the cutest Christmas cookies, and I just wish my son could partake.
