More about Alyssa . . .

The day that I've been waiting for for one year, two months, one week, and one day has finally arrived. The day that I would pull out a toy and Alyssa's eyes would light up with joy! She has a new love in her life in the form of her Fisher Price Laugh and Learn House. Now, she hasn't actually gotten to play with it yet, because it IS a Christmas present, but she got mighty excited watching me put it together this afternoon.

Adam and I are sooooooooo bad about opening gifts from each other before a set holiday. By the time Christmas, our birthdays, Valentine's day, our anniversary, ect arrive we've already opened, used and/or broken our gifts to each other. This year is no exception. Tonight I opened the best present ~ a pair of soft, comfty, purple flip flop slippers. I had told him how I saw some at Old Navy that I loved, but they were in the kids section and I was seriously pondering seeing if I could fit into a child's size slipper. I love wearing slippers around the house, but then the top of my feet get so hot that I have to kick them off every once in awhile. So, now life is complete; I have a pair of slipper that I can wear all day every day. Until my daughter decided to PEE on my new slippers as she was getting into the bathtub tonight. Now I have soft, comfty, purple, WET flip flop slippers. But I still love them; I just have to wait for them to dry.
