Alize is ONE already!
Yep it is true Alize turned one on June 26th. We wanted to celebrate outside at a lovely park, but unfortunately we got rained out and had to take it inside. Since our apartment is in shambles from moving we decided to hold it at only the coolest place on earth..... YES THAT RIGHT, the one and only CHUCKECHEESE! ya! So since I don't want to be the mom that never makes my girls cakes and cooks (even though I usually am, unfortunately:( ) I decided to make Zeze a barbie cake. So thanks to my girlfriend Christine (who did most of the work and showed me the way) I was able to make this adorable Arial cake. Isn't it awesome. ALize is the best. She is loving smart and so sweet. She loves her sister and wants to do everything she does. She can sleep anywhere and loves her backpack so much. She weighed in at
33 " tall
She is healthy and delightful, she can give kisses, loves babies, says baby and mamma and can talk on the phone. Oooooh I love my baby girl Alize, I can't believe she is so old!
We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
Art and Graduation
I graduated from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale in March, 2006. I am now and Interior Designer and worked for a very established and wonderful Italian kitchen company for over a year until we moved to New York. Here is my thesis and some graduation pictures.
