Kevin and I BOTH have been cooking tons of fun and semi-healthy food for our family in our spare time. This is the Pork Salad from Cafe Rio that we made for my birthday. YUMMO!
I've spent a lot of time getting Lily used to the idea of the potty. Not potty training yet... just helping her overcome her fear of sitting over a gaping hole with a sucking whirlpool inside threatening to swallow her up to her impending doom.
I've also been able to have one on one time with the girls and teach them more about the world around them.
And when we're not doing one on one, we've been able to play together. I don't have any pictures of it (because we were playing) but last night we played pillow hop and then spent an hour riding our sleeping bag down the stairs. So much fun!
We've been able to exercise EVERY DAY too! I have now completed 9 days in a row of the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels, and several of those days the girls worked out with me. We've also been able to play outside and go on some very fun walks (thanks to a surprisingly warm Chicago November!)

And when the girls have been napping, Mommy's been busy making Christmas presents! We decided to have a completely homemade Christmas this year and thanks to months of addictive behavior on Pinterest, I've gathered tons of ideas that have finally been able to be put to good use. I started with these crocheted puppy dogs...

...and last night I finished these Barn Yard Hand Puppets! I still have to make the barn curtain for these, but so far they look pretty good.
Anyway, I AM tired, but I am having a blast utilizing my newly found time. How are you all doing on your internet goals? I would love to hear from you!
