Happy 4th Birthday Alyna!

I really cannot believe she is already 4 years old, the time has flown by! She has been such a wonderful child, easy and always a ton of fun. I was so lucky to have such an easy first baby. She is now my little helper, always getting things for Noah. She is such a great big sister. In honor of her 4th birthday, here are some photos of the last 4 years!

Here I am the night before my sweetie decided to make her very unexpected entrance into the world. Born at 37 weeks and under less then ideal circumstances, she was a trooper through it all.

And here she is on her birth day. She weighed in at 4.14 and 18 inches long. She was a tiny thing. She dropped down to closer to 4 lbs. even before we left the hospital. I was so scared to take that tiny thing home, she seemed so breakable, luckily we did fine.

Here she is on her 1st birthday!

2nd Birthday!

3rd Birthday!

And last, but not least , here she is opening her birthday presents this year!

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!!

Sandia Peak Tramway

One of the coolest things we have gotten to do since we have been here in ABQ is to go up on the Sandia Peak Tramway. It takes you up 2 miles (I think) to the top of Sandia Peak, I believe it is the longest tramway in the world. It was so neat! We went at sunset time, so it was hard to get any good photos, but here are a couple.

Well Hello Again!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post! We have been incredibly busy starting our new business in New Mexico. All is well in Albuquerque, we love it here, so beautiful! It is really nice to have some mountains close by again, can't wait for ski season! The weather is gorgeous, it was so nice to move somewhere nearly 10-15 degrees cooler then Texas, oh man that Texas heat is so hot! The kids are adjusting well. I start homeschooling Alyna again next Monday, so I have been busy getting lessons together for that. She is so excited and has asked me everyday when we are starting again. I will probably be posting my lesson plans on my school blog if anyone is interested. Noah is growing like a weed. He is so fun right now! He is saying a lot more words and is pretty good at keeping up with big sister. I have lots of photos to post, including ones of Lyna's birthday, so I will try to get those going today!
