Happy 10th Birthday!!

It's hard to believe 10 years ago we welcomed our precious Christmas gift!! Alyssa wasn't suppose to born until the new year but God blessed us with her birth just 10 days before Christmas in 2001. Having a newborn at Christmas that year made everything about Christmas a little more special!

We started her birthday with our annual "waking up the birthday child with Happy Birthday". From there, we sent her off to school and joined her later that day for a little celebration with her class. Her class plays a little trivia game with questions regarding the birthday student. It was fun because we got to come up with some of our own questions for the class.

Later that evening we celebrated her birthday with family. She was so surprised with her gift that many of us went in on for her. She got her new American Girl "look like me" doll and named it Noelle (Alyssa's middle name).

It was a great day and we had fun celebrating with her!
