This is called the middle name game. Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details).
My middle name: Lyn

Today I brought a package of cupcakes to her to share with her class. They seemed to enjoy that. :)
Here are some pictures from her birthday party on Sunday...
Can you tell she was SUPER excited to get her Hannah Montana wig from my dad and his wife?? She says she asked Santa for one at Christmas. And all I can think of is that she must've asked Santa at the mall just a few days before Christmas. So yeah, Santa didn't bring it. Shame on him!!! And she was really heart broken on Christmas morning. :( But now it's fine and dandy... :) Go Grandpa!!!
My brother gave her a CD. ;) She thinks she's all that and a box of cookies now...LOL ;)
And of COURSE my little Starbucks addict would get a gift card. ;) LOL
She got soooo many more things, lots of clothes and a few games and a couple of toys. She had a wonderful Birthday!!!
Happy Birthday my little sweetie!! :)

She's starting to do new hair styles on herself. She'll gather up her hair nice and neatly up at the top/middle and front(not sure if you can really picture that...lol) and put a little claw clip to hold it in place. I was never able to do my hair as a kid. LOL Heck, I can hardly deal with her stringy straight as a board hair. It goes one direction and that's it. She must have more patience than I do with it.
I can totally tell she's turning 5. She's acting more and more like a big kid. She's grown 3 inches since her birthday last year. She's in a size 13 1/2 shoe. Size 6 in pants and shirts. She's 3' 9 1/4" tall. And her favorite thing right now is Hannah Montana or any of the 'big kid' shows as I call them. LOL She LOOOOVES her lipgloss. I think she's pretty much addicted. LOL She loves to draw, color and do pretty much anything crafty. She comes by it honestly. It pretty much runs in our blood. Both my grandmothers do/did all kinds of crafty things....that's where I got it from, and that's where Saira gets it from. ;) You'll never see her without her purse and a baby.
These are just a few of the MANY MANY things that make up my little baby girl. She's so full of silliness and personality. And everytime I see that smile of hers it always reminds me of when she was just 5, 6, 7 and 8 months old when ALL she did was SMILE allllllll the time. Major cuteness!! Her nickname was Smilie. With all that smiling as a baby, it turned her into this ham of a young lady.
What's funny, is everything about her now, is everything who I was at that age as well. It's really hard to believe she's 5 years old.

Now for the Tag!!
Over at The Scrapperie, Colleen started a tag for us. So here goes...
1. Name your 2 favorite scrapbooking topics.
2. What are the 2 best places you've been to?
The Columbia Gorge between Washington and Oregan
The Sequoia National Redwood Forest in California
3. Name 2 things you do every day.
Talk on the phone
And I sit at the computer

I love to scrapbook
And I love coffee
5. What are 2 of your favorite stores?
And Lane Bryant (but that won't be needed anymore..lol)

OK, so as you can see all of the questions have "2" in them. You're going to answer the questions on your blog and add one more question with "2" of something. That way as it spreads, it'll get longer and change depending on who it visits! Make sure to list the 2 people you're tagging on your blog and let them know! (The tag started with 4 questions)

I tried to call you when the ball dropped to do our Happy New Years to one another, but you must've been partyin' like it was 1999. LOL ;)
So after we Ooo'ed and Ahhh'ed over the bright and shiny ball, we had to take our new year pics. So here we go.....
Little Missy Prissy couldn't hang much longer after 10:30...
Ryan was all jazzed up about the New Year....
Chad was hardly hanging in there....
And here's myself... :) Ryan took this of me. He's pretty good, huh? Chad took a few, and they were totally terrible pictures...LMAO!! So I asked Ryan if he wanted to try and it only took him this one shot. Go Ryan!! ;)
