Our Mini Beach Vacation

Jamey being the wonderful husband and father that he is took Alyssa and I over to Corpus Christi for the weekend. We had such a fun time. We took Alyssa to the Texas Aquarium and she got to pet a Stingray. She loves fish! They had a dolphin show and she got to watch that as well. It was a ton of fun! Then we went over to Padre Island to the beach. Alyssa loves the beach. Just like her daddy! She and Jamey walked all over the place hunting up seashells and hermit crabs. They found several sanddollars as well. We built a very sad little sandcastle but we enjoyed ourselves so much! All in all a fabulous weekend getaway!

Converted to the dark side.....

Of the world of Tattoos! I had my right hip done when I was young and stupid but always wanted to get it mirrored on the left. I'm all about symmetry! And I also did my foot. Hurt like the devil......haha! My mom is completely horrified and told Manda to tell me that she was glad it hurt! I'm sure I'll regret it when I'm 80 and wrinkly but for now I LOVE IT!!!

Finger Paint Fun!

Every time I break out the finger paint somehow it ends up like this.......I don't know what her teacher at school is going to think when she starts painting herself instead of her paper!!! 
Jamey says that we are just encouraging her to express her creative side! We emailed these pictures of us to him at work today and he said he smiled the rest of the day!!!

MiMi and PawPaw's visit!

Jamey's parents came in for a visit last week and stayed several days. We had such a good time. Alyssa loved all the grandparent loving that came her way. Every morning she'd wake up and say "MiMiPawPaw down stars?" MiMi PawPaw is all one word ya know! She was so super sad when the left! Her PawPaw made her a wonderful toy box and a picnic table and brought it to her. I'll have to take some pictures and post those. He's also made her a bookshelf for her room. He does such a good job!
