This blog will be a mixture of lots of things, with recently taken random pictures sprinkled about. :)
Sunday was my nephew's second birthday party. It was really great. I love having the entire family family together. It doesn't happen as often as it should. Not that we don't want it to, but that we are all busy and get caught up in the daily rush of life, that we forget to make an effort to do the most important things. Thankfully we have the holidays coming up and then Leala's birthday shortly after that, so we will be all together again real soon. :)
Anyway, Sean loved his presents. He held onto his guitar that we bought him the entire time. It was so cute to see him rock out with it. It even plays "Bad to the Bone". I thought it was priceless watching him play with it.
He loved the Spiderman theme.. That's all he kept saying the whole day. "Spiderman this. Spiderman that." Too cute. :)
Leala has a big Pooh bear that says lots of things about hugging, when you push it's belly. It is really cute. Well today she was playing with it and she kept throwing herself at it, hugging it. It was tooooo cute. So of course I grabbed the camera and started taking tons of pictures. She was just adorable, and the Pooh bear kept saying stuff like, "Thank you for the big bear hug." and "That's the friendliest of hugs." and "That was a cozy sort of hug." and "Let's snuggle together." Leala would hug the bear. It would say something. She would stare at it and smile. Then she'd hug it again. lol, it was so cute.
Today we went out to get more Christmas shopping down. I feel pretty good about it all. We still have to get a few more gifts, but we have gotten a lot done. I think tomorrow I will actually be wrapping up some stuff. Yay! I'm so excited. I love Christmas time!
Kevin and I have set up a schedule for me to be able to work out. I am super excited about this, and so far it is working out great. Of course it just started today.. haha.. We figured it all out yesterday and started today. I enjoyed myself, and it was great to have a little bit of time actually to do something for myself, that has nothing to do with anyone else, but me.. Well, actually it indirectly has to do with anyone I come into contact with, because today after my work-out, I was much nicer and friendly to everyone... haha.. I don't normally get to do anything for myself, so this is a great start. Plus, it gives me a little break from Leala, which I never usually get. And I think it makes me a better mommy. So yay! As long as we can stick to it, I think it is good all around.
Oh and Kevin even helped me figure out what I should be doing during that time. I am a list person, so we made out a list of the exercises that I needed to do. I love it and I am looking forward to tomorrow's work-out!
