Aryssa's 7th Birthday Party

They grow up SO fast ;( This is one little girl who is doing it beautifully!!! She isn't only the prettiest little Aryssa I've ever met...she's also such a good girl! Unlike my own darling heathens, she could receive two gifts and one of them could be really hideous clothing ;)...and she would still be happy and satisfied. You won't hear any..." i don't really like this" or "is there more?", from this one! I just love her to pieces...but she is going to have to learn to not take me so seriously all the I guess I'm so used to all the kids I'm around just knowing that I'm silly, I forget and find myself assuring her I'm only kidding...and not completely crazy. ;) Happy Birthday Miss Aryssa...I hope your 7th year is nothing but wonderful!!!!

"The Tree" 2010

So my poor little Christmas tree was laughed at this year by a very mean, heartless person (ahem...JAMI). I will admit, it's getting on in years and was bought on a very tight budget all those years ago. Maybe it does need to give up it's place in front of our window to a newer more full tree...but the kids still had fun decorating it and were very proud of themselves ( I'm not ashamed to say I dream of a tree that is ONLY for ME to decorate!!). Maybe next year will bring a replacement....or maybe I'll even brave this dreaded, much hated cold, and venture out to get a real one...maybe ;) For now, the ornaments will be removed and the tree will be put back in it's much used ( makeshift boat, plane and train) box for storage...and I'll share these pictures that make having a tree that may be lacking just a little....not matter at all. <3
