Christmas wrap up.

 santa delivered just what she asked for!

 (notice bear bear under the arm)

 (bear bear still here!)

It was a wonderful Christmas! 
At home, being lazy, playing with new toys and drawing all day long!
I love watching the excitement and anticipation of the 9 year old.
It's more fun with each passing year.
How sweet it is to have little brother this year. 
They are my gifts this year.
And of course the Mr.
There's so much to be thankful for.

good afternoon sweetheart.

Hello my love!
We're having a great day.
I hope you are too!
Brother is sleeping away in the bouncer, in the crib. 
Sister has a friend from school over having a play date.

I hope you enjoy the pics!
Sis is too busy playing to take her picture.
I Love YOU!
(i think i'll hurry and make caramel!)

my gift to you!

Good evening my love.
Today, my first gift to you is this post...
these pictures of our beautiful children.
Aren't we so blessed?

...and thank you for helping me with the tree skirt this morning.
Doesn't it look much better?!

My second gift to you is this batch of
perfect fudge
that I made for you today!
My third gift to you is my daily exercise.
I sacrificed my routine to make you this treat.
Because I knew how happy it would make you.
And how much you would look forward
to eating it after your long day away.
I. Love. You.

what a good girl!

...not only is she playing her songs,
she let me take a picture!
She says hi and she loves you!

todays workout....

...went like this:
12:30:  brother is asleep, off to hit the workout equipment
12:50:   20 minutes complete on treadmill 
12:52:  2 minutes into elliptical brother's hungry
12:53:  feed baby brother
1:23:  brother's on the ottoman-mommy hits elliptical
1:25: brother's not happy-proceed to get the baby carrier
 1:30: this is how I complete my workout!

2:00: finally finish my 45 minute workout!
Brother loved hanging out in the carrier.
I think it brought back memories of being in my tummy while we were on the elliptical!
Miss you.
Love you.
