Alyson News!

Wow it has been a while since I posted anything. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year filled with family and food. Alyson is getting ready for her fourth birthday, that doesn't even seem possible. She recently decided it was time for her to get her ears pierced and she did it without shedding on tear, I was so proud of her, it was just the two of us that went, I think Daddy was too nervous which makes for a nervous child so we left him at home. Alyson is growing up so fast, she is such a sweet girl with a big heart. I feel so blessed to be her mother. Alyson still loves going to her preschool and all her friends. For Christmas she got a brand new Dora bike, which she absolutely loves and has just recently been able to enjoy with the nicer weather. I will try to post some new pictures of her with her earrings and of course her Dora birthday bash that is coming soon.

Fun filled Saturday!

Saturday was a busy day for us, we went to Mommy's company picnic, then it was off to Landon's birthday party, followed up by an exciting night at the fair. Landon just turned 3 yrs old and had a Curious George birthday party, it was so much fun. Alyson and Landon had a blast at the fair together this year. They rode a lot of rides (including the scrambler, which by the way Alyson requested to ride twice, what a dare devil) and played a few games. We were even able to take Granny Carr with us which is amazing in itself she is 79 and hasn't been to a fair in lets just say a few years, but I think she had a great time. We were all pretty tired by the end of the night but a great time was had by all. Thank you also to Mimi for going and helping with the kids while the adults rode a ride by themselves!

Alyson Updates

I just wanted to take this time to share a few things about Alyson as she is growing so fast. She is the sweetest little girl ever, don't get me wrong she has her moments as does every 3 1/2 yr old. She loves to play with her dolls and her favorite thing to play is doctor. She is really into puzzles and coloring, anything with art really. She loves going to church and playing with her friends. As far as her health goes she has been a super healthy little girl, thank you Lord. She is not a picky eater, she loves all vegetables, meat, not real crazy about fruit but she will eat it if I put it in front of her. She does have a bossy streak--hummm can't imagine where that may come from. She loves her Mommy and Daddy. She is really into going to "school" and learning new things. Owen and I have not enrolled her in any sports or dance as of yet. Her school will be starting gymnastics and jitter bugs (dance), we let her decide which one she wanted to do and she chose gymnastics so well see how she likes it. We are so proud of the little girl we have and love her dearly she is such a blessing from God!

Mother's Day/Father's Day 2009

This year for Mother's Day Owen took Alyson shopping to pick out a Mother's Day gift, she did a wonderful job picking out 5 containers of gerber daisies for us to plant in our flower bed. She got one yellow, two orange, and two pink gerber daisies. The flowers were beautiful and still are. I also had her color a picture for both of her Grannies and we framed them, they were so beautiful. We cooked Mother's Day dinner for Granny Granny on the Saturday before Mother's Day, Granny B could not make it she was under the weather. On Mother's Day Owen and Alyson took me out to lunch, it was a wonderful day with my two favorite people.

This year for Father's Day Alyson and I decided to get Daddy a gift certificate that way he could get exactly what he wanted. We took Daddy out to lunch and later that evening enjoyed a rather warm but fun cookout at church for all the Dads. Happy Father's Day to the best Daddy ever!

So Behind

Sorry I haven't posted anything new in a very long time, we have been so busy. Things are starting to slow down a little bit so hopefully I can post all the fun things we have been doing. Alyson is growing up so fast, it is funny some of the conversations she has with us. Lets just say she is a true diva and we are in the process of teaching her reality... you can't always get what you want. She really is fun though, she loves to wear her princess dress-up shoes through the house carrying her purse and pushing her walmart shopping cart with her baby doll in the front exclaiming "I am going to walmart to get groceries, be back in a minute". She is really into helping, wanting to help clean, vacuum, cook, etc., lets just hope the same attitude is there when she is older. She has been asking lately if she could have a not sure about that yet. She thinks you can just pick out what you want in a nursery and pick out whatever you want, boy or girl (suppose she gets this from going into the church nursery to visit our friend's baby). We just keep telling her maybe someday:) She loves to pray at all the meals and at night, especially remembering her friend that is sick, little Drew. We love her so much and she is such a joy. I will try to get some pictures up of our vacation and outings. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

This is Alyson's first year to be in the AWANA program at our church so this was her first year to enter the AWANA Grandprix. We decided, Alley included that her car should be painted and decorated like a ladybug. The car turned out to be absolutely cute. She helped us paint it and Daddy and I added the finishing touches. Alyson won 1st place in the design division for her age group and even got a trophy. We all had so much fun, can't wait until next year. Next year we will have to work on speed as her car was a little slow, she did however win two races

Big Girl Booster Seat

After a lot of investigation and research into finding the right booster seat we finally found one that is not only safe but also stylish. Let me take a minute to back up and explain the decision to get a new car/booster seat. Little Miss Alyson now weighs 34 1/2 pounds and is getting to big for me to lift her into her car seat, now she can get into it herself, much easier on her and me. Here she is on the way to the AWANA Grandprix (post to follow).
