My Baby is Four

I can't believe it. Allie is four today. I remember the day she was born so clearly. It was one of the best days of my life. I love my little Allie Brooke so much. She is such a smart, sweet, loving person. She tells me about 50 times a day that she loves me, and is always giving us all hugs and kisses. She's always up for a 'nuggle', and is a lot of fun to be with. She loves learning, and is so interested in her preschool workbooks, puzzles, games, writing, drawing, reading about animals, and playing rhyming games with her Daddy and I. Every day her and Lily become better and better friends. The first thing she asked me yesterday when she woke up is "Mommy can I play with Lily??" They play together all day long, and Allie is so protective of her. If someone ever does anything to Lily that Allie feels wasn't nice she comes right to her rescue. She's an amazing helper. She helps me clean up the house, carry in the groceries, work out in the yard, clean up after her and Lily, and is always refilling our glasses whenever they are empty, without being asked. She is extremely funny and a blast to be with. She loves animals. Zebras are her favorite animal at the zoo, and loves playing with all of the dogs in the neighborhood. She is my little buddy, and I love her more than I could have ever possibly imagined. I love you Allie Brooke!

Stansfield Family Christmas Card 2009

Merry Christmas! We hope you enjoy our latest work of art. We had a blast filming this.

Disclaimer: No children were endangered in the making of this film. All stunts were fully supervised by "responsible" adults. Stunt double was a doll who did unfortunatly lose an arm.

What We've Been Up To

This is a little catchup from the last couple of months. Fall is so great here, we were able to swim well into October. Love it. Allie after her last dance recital with Abby

Allie feeding the giraffes at Out of Africa. If you haven't been, you should go. Way fun. Totally worth the drive.
Giant obstacle course my neighbors rented for Thanksgiving. It was just out front all day, and the kids had a blast. First thing Allie came running to me saying "Mommy there's a castle outside!!!" I was like "Sure Allie... whatever..."

A self timer masterpiece
Cute girls, playing outside, loving the warm weather. It's been in the mid 70's all week.Awwwwww. We love our Lily-Bug.
