Loved the Thanksgiving dress - those fabrics are marvelous!

I just love how much Sami still looks like she did when she was first born - she is getting to such a fun and expressive age!

The totes turned out really cute - I just love the Santa applique ones... And the ornaments are beautiful. How did you do those?

so my children haven't been sleeping lately and it has been crazy busy here. I used to look at the computer before getting the kids up but it has been a mad dash to get the kids moving and then I want to work out and I have to put that first.

This morning C doesn't have school teacher development day so I had J out the door at 6:45 and was able to work out then.

I really need to Christmas shop we went to the mall yesterday but the only shopping done was getting things C needed and a picture with Santa. It was too too crowded. I am finishing online.

TRIP UPDATE So it is now official Sami has her passport so we can travel the globe.

So do you want to see a Santa picture. This is my favorite.

I hope you are able to finish your Christmas shopping soon.

I know the feeling... It's been a mad dash for me in the mornings now - since Josh is home for school, I have to work out in the office and be DONE by 6:30 am, which means I have to have all of my desktop computer time completely finished by 6am... It's kind of crazy. But - I agree - I am doing my best to making working out a priority, and I prefer to have it done in the morning, so it isn't hanging over my head all day long. I am so proud of you for all the changes you are making, you are doing such a great job Chiara!!!

Love the picture of Sami with Santa - how adorable. And congrats for getting her passport, I see many great travels and family memories in your future.

I hope you are able to get some good sleep soon. (((Hugs)))

Can I just say that I am happy the holidays are over. I always get super stressed leading up to them. Thankfully we had a great holiday.

Jimmy actually opened his own presents this year so it was fun.

Merry Christmas to everyone and tomorrow I will be starting my morning with a work out.

Oh and for our February trip I did score a reservation for Hollywood and Vine for Play and Dine since I heard both Sofia and Doc McStuffins will be there. Very excited for that.

Aw thanks I truly feel support and accountability are the key.

Also I believe in eating real food.

I couldn't agree more... For the first time in my life - I enjoy eating for the sake of eating and TASTING... It's a wonderful thing... And to not be bound by calories in/out - just enjoying what's there in moderation - it's so much less stressful! Granted, I am not losing as fast as I want to, but I feel good and I am making small progress, so I am content with that... Even if I only lose a size/year - it's still going in the right direction.

I hope you feel better today, and hopefully no one else in your house gets sick.

We haven't been to H &V in years but Sami loves Doc and Sofia so we thought we would give it a try plus we are staying at the boardwalk so it is only a short walk.

Going to try and post some new pictures later today.

So how about some pictures. These are some presents I made for holiday presents

For my sister a Dr. Who bag


for Sami a Sofia Blanket


for J I made a pillowcase


C received 2 pairs of PJs but I couldn't find a picture of the other pair. C has a thing for Penguins


and last but not least I decided Sami needed a Christmas dress and I went in a totally different direction from what I had planned. I decided last minute on a Pooh theme.


I need to figure out the temperatures for our February trip and see what still fits Sami.

I love all of it! I love the fabrics you chose for J's pillowcase... I think the fabrics for the DW bag are perfect! And I love Miss C's jammies! And, of course, Sami is adorable and her dress is fantastic! She is sure growing so fast!

So today I am deciding outfits Sami needs for our next trip and April.

I am also going to look at my fabric since C wants a pillowcase for the cruise and I think I will do one for Sami since it is her first cruise.

I also am going to order our fish extender. I have a small group for this cruise so I am trying to figure out gifts.

The first 2 outfits I am thinking about are a Frozen Dress and something for Play and Dine. I need to figure out which Disney Jr. Characters are there.

I am getting excited and nervous as nothing is done but I have several cute things coming for J since I ordered.
