The Wiggles

Alyssa has discovered The Wiggles...or we have introduced Alyssa to The Wiggles. It all started one Saturday morning when Alyssa woke up at 6AM and Doug turned on the tv hoping she might show some interest in a kids show, so we could get more sleep. The Wiggles were on and for a blissful 1/2 hour Alyssa watched The Wiggles and we were able to sleep. Heavenly!

We now own two Wiggles dvds which Alyssa likes to watch. Today Doug came home and said that The Wiggles' songs were running through his head all day long. You know you're a parent when you start singing songs from your kid's shows.

Alyssa's 1st Birthday!

We celebrated Alyssa's first birthday with family. We had Aly's birthday party on Saturday and had a party with the Bruschkes, Yees, Doug's dad (Doug's Mom is in Houston with the Myers family) (little)Liz, Becky and Michael. We played pin the nose on Elmo (Morgan and Natalie tied). Alyssa received a blue care bear from the Yees, little people from the Bruschkes, Winnie the Pooh scooter and ball game from us, Elmo live from Grandma and Papa Leber, and some money to start a bank account from Grandma and Grandpa Higham.

After Alyssa's party we went to my Grandparents house (Grandma and Grandpa DeLancy) where she received some books, which she loves. A big day for a little birthday girl. She was absolutely exhausted and cranky by the end of the day.

Alyssa and her Birthday cake!

For Alyssa's birthday cake she had a small 4 inch pink Princess Aurora cake, which was so cute and so good. Alyssa had no problem digging into her cake. Until her hands got completely dirty with icing and cake and then she didn't know what to do. She decided at that point she was done.

Aly in my pink sweater

The pink sweater Aly is wearing was something I wore when I was her age.

Our little one tooth wonder.

Christmas 2008-Aly's First Christmas

Christmas Eve 2008

I know I'm posting these pics later..but better late than never. Christmas Eve we spent with the Highams. We had burritos and root bear floats for good. Grandpa Higham read "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas"; we sang some Christmas carols and rang bells; and particpated in the reading of the Christmas story found in Luke.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Everytime we see this movie preview or poster, Doug says "Liz it's you".
Doug is hoping for a cure.
