It’s Official!!!

Alyssa is walking!!!!!!!! She found her bravery yesterday and started zooming around the living room ON HER OWN!!!!!!!!!!


Only In The World Today

Only in our world could someone in thier 20’s not be embarassed about both their parents being on Facebook.

I kid you not. My Mom and Dad both have one now!! I have to be the only 21 year old that isn’t freaking out about their parents being friends with them!

I’ll Miss Him.


As many of you may know, my Grandpa just passed away. You can read my mom’s tribute to him here.

I can say that I’ll miss him everyday. I hated seeing him ill, but I’ll never remember him that way.

I’ll remember the look on his face when he saw me get married.

I’ll never forget the joy he had when  he first held Alyssa.

I’ll remember how happy he was when I saw the doll house he built for me as a kid, or even the one he built for Alyssa.

I’ll see his face every time I look at the necklace he gave me as a teen (He said it was to remember him by when he passed.)

I’ll never forget his sarcasm, his love and his laugh.

I’ll never forget how happy he was every time we came over for a visit.

I’m sad that Alyssa will never really know her Great-Grandpa Earl, but She’ll see how much he loved her as she grows up. She’ll know who he was, and why we loved him.

I love you Grandpa. I can’t wait to see you again someday!
