Okay. I suck. Alyssa's birthday was actually on September 19th. What can I say? It has been a rough month! I was sick for most of September with a nasty sinus/bronchitis thing, and I finally feel better now.
But, enough about me...

Our little Miss Alyssa turned 4 this year. Where does the time go? I am amazed at how much faster my kids birthdays come around than my own did when I was a kid...Things that make you go Hmmmmm....
Anyway, Alyssa is BIG! Well, not compared to other 4 year olds, really...but, she is so big to us! She just started school and is learning so darn much it is amazing. She still has a major diva attitude like she always has - but, she is learning and growing. I'm pretty proud of her.
|Here's the loot!|
For Alyssa's birthday, she got a tricycle and a little miniature Beauty and the Beast castle thing that she absolutely loves. (Craigslist is an awesome resource!) Grandma and Grandpa gave her a new fleece Cinderella blanket that has completely overtaken my Tinkerbell quilt that I made her last year...She got a super cute outfit from Aunt Kristen and a Belle doll from Aunt Karen...In other words, she hauled....again!
