Last weeks Alexis got sick. After some blood work they found out she had mono. Poor thing was so sick, but she bounced back really quickly and within a week she is back to normal. We have to be careful of her spleen for the next 4-6 weeks. So we can't give her the trampoline we got her for christmas. Oh well.
Over the past few days we have been spending lots of time getting ready for christmas. Lots of baking, cleaning and crafting. We are having lots of fun. Yesterday we made dog treats. Hopefully Solomon and Calvin will enjoy them. We do have to now wrap all the things we have been making. Alexis is a great helper.

Today Alexis spelled her last name! I though it was probably time to teach her how to spell it and she quickly showed me she already know it! I don't know how or when she learned it, but she definitely surprised me.
She is always amazing me with how smart she is.

Thanksgiving week

We spent Thanksgiving with Aunt Tina and Uncle Brad. Alexis and I drove up to PA the Sunday before Thanksgiving. We had a good time. We went shopping and spent lots of time preparing for thursday. Alex flew up on Thursday and Dieter went to get him from the airport. We had a great thanksgiving dinner. Alexis was only interested in eating the turkey cupcakes I made. They were cute.
I did venture out to toys-r-us for black friday. I got a few things for Alexis. Brad and Dieter sat outside Target for 6 hours to get a new TV. They were successful.
On Saturday we took Daddy to Chocolate World. We had a great time. We did the tour and than Alexis and Daddy decorated a cupcake. Saturday night we rode through the Hershey light display. Alexis loved the rain deer lights.
Our drive home was a tough one. It should have taken 7 1/2 hours and ended up taking 12 hours. The trafic on the 95 was awful!

Trick or Treating 2010

Unfortunately Alex was not able to make it home from jump school on time for Trick or Treating this year. Alexis was a princess ballerina. I made her a tutu and got her some leotards. Aunt Tina, Grand mom and Sophia were here with us. Alexis had a great time, by the end she was a profesional. The first few homes she was a little skeptical about just saying "trick or treat" and getting candy, but she quickly caught on. She got a ton of candy. When we got back I let her eat some while we handed out candy. I think she likes handing out candy just as much as she likes getting it. All in all it was a good night. Hopefully daddy will be here for Halloween next year.

It's been a while

It has been a long time since I have blogged. I have missed it. I
plan on making time for it at least once a week.
Just to update everyone alex returned home from Iraq in December, we
moved to Ga in April and just moved into our new home in NC. Right
now alex is trying to finish up jump school so he can come home. My
MIL and SIL are staying with me getting things ready.
Today I went and bought new blinds for our kitchen than I installed
them. They look great. Tomorrow is trick or treating so that should
be fun. I will blog all about it tomorrow.
