Exercise has taken over my house !!!!

I often compare myself as a mother duck: whatever I do (or go) , my kids want to do the same. Today, I couldn't exercise during the day and Chuy (yes, the bad Santa) was sweet enough to do the homeworks with the kids. Of course, the kids saw me and were very excited to exercise too. Pierre would like to loose his baby fat (they are more like Mac donalds fat actually) around his hips because swimming classes will start on may or june at his school. So as a good blogging mom, I couldn't help taking pictures !!! By the way, are you a mother duck? I'm still sticking to exercise !!! Hope I can keep the mojo

Emma working on her abs

Steb doing push ups (because a three years old has to saty in shape !!!) See his tee shirt: it says: MOVE !!! If I can reach the top of this machine, I could work on my abs too !!!

Sale season is back !!! I was able to buy two madame la fée charts !!! And they are available so I'll show them to you as soon as I'll get them (pretty exciting !!!) . If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will recognize them. I only buy them when they are on sale because they are quite expensive. She has 6 charts in english, here !

Yesterday was the first day of the sales so I went on the hunt for clothes for my kids. I only got the ones that were 50 % off. I didn't buy anything for right now as they are set for this cold winter; they now have clothes for next year. I only bought a pair of shoes for me: I got my first Converse shoes 50% off! I'm very happy because I would have never paid the full price: it's way too expensive here ... I didn't exercised yesterday at home but with all the walking I did, I think I can count it as an exercise

Wanna see my fuchsia? What I can add to what I said the previous weeks? Still wonderful to stick with it. I'm not bored yet!

Your kids look like they are having so much fun. Steb looks a lot like my James, all that blond were so right about saying the same in a previous comment to me.

I hope you had a nice holiday, reading your blog it looks like you had a very nice time.

Wishing you and your family all the best in 2009!

I love looking at your WIP pics of the Fuchsia. It's one of my favourite Lanarte kits and I have been thinking about stitching it for years. Right now I am stitching a different Lanarte kit: Lazy Afternoon. But maybe when I've finished it I will have to stitch the Fuchsia after seeing all your WIP pics :).

Great stitching. Fantastic that you are not bored yet.

Lots of exercise happening at our house too. I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes this morning. Thought my feet might fall off afterwards!

My son loves exercising with me too... especially the exercise dvd's. Although I think his favourite is the exercise ball... I had to buy him his own so that he'd leave mine alone when I needed it lol.
