Army Alyssa

This is what it looks like to have pride in your country. Unfortunately for Alyssa she happens to be wearing the getup for the CANADIAN army reserve.

My brother in law ( Uncle Kingsley to Alyssa ) happens to be part of the reserve in Canada. In fact he just left today for another month long training session. While we were up for an extended visit, he thought it would be fun to dress up my eldest in his gear.

This was not that easy. Kingsley is over 6 feet tall and large in stature. I think Alyssa looks pretty great considering the size difference. It makes for a cuter picture anyway. Now if my daughter were actually heading off on a military assignment, I don't think I would feel so light hearted. Give em heck Alyssa!

Those boots are a crack up.

She looks so dang cute! I have been wondering about you lately... How have you been?

Ok I am a total nerd! I lost your address and for some strange reason I don't have your e-mail. My only excuse is that I have 5 kids and I have lost my mind. So if you could please e-mail me your address again I would truly appreciate it. I need it because I have a goal this year to get out christmas cards. I always want to but I never have the time once halloween hits. So I am doing it now so when December 1st comes I can just drop them in the mail and be done. I hope you are doing well.
