Alyssa loves to dress up but not with just one dress! She likes to likes to princess dress on top of another dress! It's not just princess dresses, she will put on three shirts or two swimsuits. She can have everything pulled out of her closet and "playing with it" in no time flat! I know it's just a phase but dang. Sometimes I feel like I spend half my time picking up her room! Her helping of course!! I can't help but think she is the cutest 3yr old that I know tho. Love this girl.

Jump rope

The Ellen Smith jump rope team! They do little half time performances durning basketball games. I'm really impressed with their routine.

You can watch it on Jamie's YouTube channel


It's upwards basketball time again! This year has been a ton better then last. Last year Trin had 2 points under get belt...this year she has 8 and the season isn't over yet!! Plus she had been stealing the ball like crazy! Lots of fun.

Duct tape madness!!

We made bows and arrows with a arrow holder out of sticks, a paper towel holder and fancy duct tape! Not to pat myself on the back, but they turned out pretty darn good!! Plus they were fun to make. Trin has been working with Alyssa so she can shoot hers. I love those moments when they play good together!

Ok I know what you're thinking....what is the disaster on the floor in the back ground in some of the pics? That is the work of a 3yr old! Alyssa can make a huge mess in no time flat! When I make her help pick it up she replies, "you make do everything around here!" Hmmm...doesn't she look like a child that's been slaved to death? :).

9 yrs can it be? baby...turned 9 today!  I really can't believe how fast it has gone!  She woke up this morning to a birthday breakfast surprise.  Smiley faced cookies.....her favorite cookie!   Then, went to  Larry's Pizza for lunch and came home to open presents and eat cake.  Ending the day watching a movie.   All and all, I think it was a great day!!

Merry Christmas! 2012

Lighting sky lanterns.  When you let yours go you get to make a wish.  We let 10 of the go.  It was really pretty cool to see.
