New Years Resolutions:
-Body Combat class once a week
-At least 20minutes walking or running or exercise bike every day
-Download and stick to Motivated Moms chore planner
-Eat more fruit and veg
-Floss daily
-Take vitamins daily

Christmas photo 2009
We had a great Christmas with Caleb. He was good fun. His main present was a smart trike and he loves getting pushed around in it. My brother-in-law dressed up as Santa which was funny. Caleb didnt really know what to make of him.
Even more excitment that his first Christmas was a white one. Cant remember our last white Christmas. It was lovely!
So the holidays are nearly over and i return to work 2 days a week starting on Tuesday :( Its going to be a turbulent few months at work with the upcoming merger, and my boss is getting vicious, so im not looking forward to it.

Hi Cheryl,
I thought I better check, you did receive my ornament didn't you?

Brigitte said...

A nice stitching start for the new year. And some great Christmas family pictures.
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year Cheryl!

Thank you for your cments on my Fa-La-La orni, in answer to your question about the beads, i'd never used beads before and yes i found them fiddly at first, but i soon got the hang of it after the first side was done, it was trying to keep them all in one place that i had difficulty doing!!, dropped the whole box on the floor, lol. Sewing them on probably took me about an hour, i shall use them again though, i like the effect.
I ordered my chart from my local LNS, it came faster than ordering from the US, might be a thought for the next one if you have a local shop.

Happy New Year.

Cheryl, what lovely photos you've got, looks like a good time was had by all.
How are you getting on with Motivated Mums? Did you get into a routine at the end of last year? I downloaded the last 3 months of the year but never really got very far. I REALLY need to get into some sort of routine, feel totally overwhelmend at the moment.

I am stitching to the motivated mom's chore planner. I found that it's really working well for me.
