I sure hope that today goes better for you, and you are able to get everything done that you need to.

Are you planning to show us the quilt blocks? I would love to see them.

Yes I will be taking a picture of the quilt blocks before I sent them off.

And so far today has been a better day. I just need to find time to work out.

I don't know what is going on with J but it has been a super tough week and I am exhausted. Add in that Sami has been getting up in the middle of the night and UGH.

I have to post a picture of the quilt blocks but now my mom is finishing the quilt for my cousin. There is a lot of work to be done and my Aunt who was going to do it isn't the greatest sewer so Mom said she would do it.

I have been working on orders. I have 2 that have to go out on Saturday. 1 is big and the other is just 1 t-shirt but it takes a while to stitch out.

So in a little trip update, we have decided to rent a car for February and drive to the port and WDW. The price for transportation from WDW to Port Canaveral is way too much and we can get a car for cheaper.

We are now going to do our own grocery shopping which will save more. We are also going to find a Cracker Barrel to eat at.

Hope you have a good day.

So I have been working on an order all week but I promised pictures of the quilt blocks here they are. My mom is actually assembling the quilt now.



Also figured I would share Mabel in her new home.


Hope everyone has a great day. C, Sami and I went to church and we are going to do some Christmas decorating today.

Good morning Chiara... I know I am a bit early - but I won't have time to do this tomorrow. So, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I know I haven't commented on Mabel (LOVE her and the sewing space)...but I was SURE I had told you how much I loved the pictures of the children, they made my day when you posted them!

Your quilt blocks made me swoon, so many of my faves!

I hope you have time to just enjoy the day and somebody else is doing most of the cooking!!

I know I am behind and I have pictures to share but life has been so super crazy.

Last Saturday was Js 6th birthday. It was low key just us nothing much going on.For DH and I it is honestly kind of depressing because we don't think he even realizes it is his birthday.

We went out to dinner on Wednesday to celebrate for his birthday and J was such an angel.

Thursday I had a meeting at Js school I was so very nervous (I get nervous to the point of making myself sick) but it turned out great and I am in the process of writing a letter to explain why J needs a one on one aide and we are looking into alternative communication system since he is mastering a picture system. Oh and Miss Sami turned 6 months.

Today I had a pediatrician appointment for Sami for her 6 month check up. It went well for the most part she is in over the 90th percentile in height, weight and head circumference. There are a couple issues we are trying hard to resolve. Sami has had really bad eczema almost since she was born and we have tried everything they have told us. Well now we have a steriod cream for her scalp and are using cortaid on her face and severe dry spots. We are also using Neutragena T-Gel for baths. Oh and we are switching to a soy formula because this could all be related to a Milk Allergy. We go back on Christmas Eve for another round of shots (we spread them out to appease my vaccination/autism nervousness ) and to see if we made progress on her eczema if not we will be going to a pediatric dermatologist. (I am thinking it may be a milk allergy since she is eating more real food I think it has been better)

So who wants a Disney Update....

We purchased our flights for April. We are flying with a stop on the way down and nonstop on the way home. It is a little bit more than I wanted to pay but we are flying during Passover and Easter so I have to deal with it.

Oh and I moved our dinner reservation at Jiko back 45 minutes. WE were planning on hanging at the hotel that day anyway.

Have a great night and I will be back with pictures later.

I was super happy to log on this morning to find an update from you. I know you've been busy, but it's nice to hear what you've been up to.

I am glad to hear that J had a great birthday. I am sure he realizes that the day is different and special in some way, even if he doesn't understand it fully.

I am also happy to hear that Sami is doing well - she is just so precious - I cannot believe how quickly she is growing! I know how you feel about the sterioid creams and such - Alli has had psoriasis her entire life (although, for the first 6 years - it was misdiagnosed as eczema) and with the psoriasis creams (not sure if the eczema creams are the same or not), but it makes her skin really thin in those areas. If she is not careful with washing her hands, it eats away the skin on her hands. I always worry about side effects from any medication. I also wish I would have known then, what I know now about vaccinations - I most likely would have opted out of a few of the non-essential ones.

Anyways... What I was trying to say... I hope you are able to get Sami's eczema under control soon. And hopefully the change in diet helps...

Is your next trip over Easter? Or are you going at Christmas time too? I can't remember.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend...

Thanks D. I am not antivaccine at all I do believe they are for the most part good. My problem is with these super vaccines where they are for 4 or 5 vaccines at once. We are doing a more traditional route with no more than 2 vaccines at once.

She is actually on a cream for psoriasis for her scalp. I think the dr was concerned because I said it would clear up and then come right back. He asked a long series of questions I think he is trying to figure out if it is being caused by the environment. Hoping the elimination of milk helps.

We are going for our Spring break which covers passover and ends near easter. We are coming home the Thursday before Easter hence the expensive flights. We are not going for Christmas and I can't pull C out of school anymore there is just too much work for her to make up.

We are in a new routine we like. Cruise in February, Trip in April/March (whenever spring break is) and our August trip. As hot as it is the crowds can't be beat.

We are heading to church and then I am coming home and packing up a few things that need to be mailed.

I am also working on a secret santa gift.

I have a 30% off coupon for Joanns but I am not sure want to drive there.

I have to take a picture of Sami in her new outfit.

Be back later.

That is very interesting about Sami's eczema... Alli's psoriasis is much the same way... As long as she applies her medication religiously - she can keep it at bay, but the minute she stops, it comes right back.

Your trips sound awesome!
