For the past few days we have been visiting with friends and family who wanted to meet at downtown Disney. We did well with the crowds and the traffic to get around there but it's definatly better to go off season. Cooper was great and made it through dinner at noisy resturants 2 nights in a row. We must have worn him out because he slept for 11 hours last night! I haven't slept in that long in a long time and boy does it feel good!

Finally the cooler weather has arrived. Last night we went for a family dinner out to Longhorn and we took The Coop out in the cold weather. I over bundled him though and he was hot by the end of the trip but...he was a good boy as always. This morning we took a run out to the stores and wore more than just our usual Florida attire :)
Thanks to Auntie Robin for the awesome cable knit sweater she bought for Cooper and the shoes and overalls that little Christopher wore.

|I have to tell you, I should be working out.|
I need to be running, doing yoga, all the things I loved to do before Cooper. But I am not. I feel like this holiday is just adding pounds to my extra baby weight as I sit and eat, work and play with Cooper all day. While my mom is in MD with my sister, I work while Cooper is quiet and sleeping (5 straight hours yesterday) and I eat here at the computer and drink diet Cherry Coke. Why do we drink diet soda when we eat chips, holiday cheese logs and crackers, chocolate chip cookies (or just the dough before you made them)?
Cooper is the only one working out...check out the video. He does this every morning and then wears himself out until it's naptime and work time for me.
I'll wait until my New Year's resolution to start running again..the only thing for me that gets the pounds off...until then...I'll watch Cooper.

I know it's not even December yet BUT...how can one resist seeing this little face with Santa? He was all smiles and laughing with Santa but when the camera was on him..it was all business. Wonder what he asked for?
We are really in the Christmas spirit at our house and I am eager to watch Elf again this year. I love to replay it over and over again when Will Farrell finds out Santa is coming and yells "SANTA!"

This morning we got up to cheer on Hope as she ran her half marathon. We enjoyed the cool morning breeze while sitting at an outdoor cafe while Hope ran her heart out. You can check out her blog for the details.
We are in Christmas OVERDRIVE around here. Mom leaves for Kimmy's this Thursday so we have been decorating fools at my house. The mantel, the tree, the outside. Rob managed to hang the lights on the roof and not fall off so I am very happy.
Pictures of all our decorations to follow, if I weren't so lazy I'd take pictures now and post but..I watched a marathon this morning so I am tired! ha ha
Cooper of course was the supervisor...watching us act crazy as usual!

So for today, I will work, take care of Cooper and shop for my Thanksgiving dinner items one at a time. I will take the lesson from Cooper and just stay focused on what is in front of me, nothing more.

My sister Kim's baby is due in 5 weeks and since she lives in Maryland, the family has been recording ourselves reading stories to the baby. My sister wants to play these stories at bedtime so the baby hears our voices even though we live in Florida.
We read a few stories (does everyone think the sound of their own voice is the most annoying sound ever????) and I propped Cooper up in his reading corner. He is way to small I know but I keep propping him up on things and taking pictures.

Having a boy made me think I couldn't do it but I think it turned out ok and not too girly ( my husband's concern). Once Cooper is old enough to pull on it, it is coming down but for now, I like to just sit in the room to enjoy looking at the veil and my mobile from when I was a baby that my mom saved for me that we now use have on Cooper's crib.
One of the best things I have ever seen in a long time are these easy to stick on decals you can use to create sayings, add your child's name to the wall, etc. Pottery Barn and others have them but I got my here on ebay.
My husband tells people he free handed it on. If you don't know him MAYBE you'd believe him but neither he or I can draw a straight line so...you can tell this is very easy to do.
We are NOT artistic people and we love how this turned out since now it looks like we are.
I bought other decals for another part of the house (iron looking designs and the word Family) at AC Moore...I haven't tried them out yet but will let you all know if they work out. I see they have chalkboard peel and stick decals so for those of you I know who may want to try out chalkboard paint this may work too.

So I usually forget the day but this year I didn't forget....I just didn't get a chance to call or email. I am a bad friend! So...here's you to your 20th birthday (we are still only 20 right???) Mere!
PS- Why can't I find any recent pictures of you and I except of my wedding 2 years ago??? Maybe because we only take pics of Brody and Cooper now? LOL
