Welcome to the World

Today at 7:51 pm Eisley Cyanne Theisen made her way into the world!
Mommy Alyssa, Daddy Eric, and New Big Brother Emmett are all overjoyed with this amazing new blessing!
Eisley weighed 6 pounds 13 ounces and she is 20 and 1/2 inches long.
Her middle name 'Cyanne' is after her two grandmothers
Cynthia and Joanne.
My only sadness in all this is not being able to be in MN to meet my new niece in person!
Welcome to the World Eisley Cyanne Theisen!!

Tis the season... sort of

I love Christmas... and every year I have to resist the urge to decorate before I really should. I totally know I am going to be that crazy old lady who puts Christmas lights out before Halloween and then leaves them up till after Easter. As soon as I see the first Christmas tree in a store or hear that first Christmas song, something in me just goes nuts and I want to decorate everything! I want my whole house to look, smell, and taste like Christmas.
This year has not been any different. I have been resisting the urge to decorate and I have not even let myself go into the Christmas aisles at the store because I know I am weak... but I did let Wyatt get a snowman window cling from the dollar section at target... I thought "Well, it's only a dollar and it's not really a Christmas decoration, it's more like a winter decoration."
I realize now that this was my way of cheating... I have a decoration up, as small as it may be, it is still a decoration. But every time I look at it it makes me smile and I know that soon my whole house will look like Christmas and that makes me happy! This whole season makes me happy... I love this season!
