Alyssa Turns 5

Our big girl Alyssa turned 5 today! 

She has a wonderful day at school, celebrating with her friends and then came home to her requested dinner (mac & cheese w/broccoli), Granny, Granddad, Grandma, and cupcakes in ice cream cones.  Her Grandma even surprised her with matching outfits for her and her doll. 
The Hoy House tradition is giving 'experiences' for birthdays instead of gifts (aka stuff)*. For Alyssa's experience this year, we treated her to lunch at the American Girl Place in Chicago with her cousins and aunts and her American Girl doll (Julie).  It was a very girly good time with Aunt Susie, Aunt Carol, Grammy Karen, Rachel and Myranda!
*Note- Grandparents are exempt from this tradition, under the grandparents code 248, aka the grandparent's perogative.  That is why we have 2 Barbie's in our house!
