Christmas at the Bear House.
Kenny and I had 25+ people at our house.
Santa made a surprise visit after dinner. The kids went crazy. Izabella was excited but then hid behind the couch. Grandma even got to sit on Santa's lap. We ate way too much as usual. Everyone had a good time. All I can say is Thank God I got my house addition done so the kids had a playroom to play in.
Merry Christmas to all

Making Christmas Cookies w/ Grandma

Well, I promised my Grandma before she died that I would attemp to make ALL of her Christmas cookies. I did it w/ a little help from my other grandma and Izabella. WHAT A MESS they made:) We had fun and that's all that matters.
Izabella had her first Christmas party at school and X-mas exchange.
It was so cute to watch the kids open their presents and tell each other Merry Christmas.
Stay tuned for pics from my Christmas tomorrow. I'm having about 25 people and Santa for dinner.

Christmas Programs

Happy Holidays-
We had 2 Christmas programs and church dinner on Sunday.
Izabella had her first school program. She is standing next to her best friend.
At Church Rozalee was Baby Jesus and Izabella was an Angel. Rozalee cackled the entire time. The microphone really picked up on it.. Izabella haD a kool-aid mustache from her school program... Rozalee was a very Fat Jesus and not PHAT. It was so cute.
We are finally getting our house put back together after our addition. I'm having a HUGE family Christmas on Sunday-wish me luck. I'll have lots of pictures. Santa will be arriving as a surprise at dinner. The kids will love that.
I hope you are all staying Phat and Happy. The 4 Bears sure are:)
Merry Christmas.

This is a picture of my cousin Toni and her 2 kids. I haven't seen her in 3 years. We took our grandma to LaRosa's for pizza. It was great seeing her. The kids had a ball.
Well it's time for me to start Christmas shopping. That is my project for the weekend.
Wish me luck.
Izabella's Santa list gets bigger evertime she see's a commercial. I can't wait to see her open presents this year.
Hope you all have a PHAT Week

Wow, I ate ALOT yesterday.
Izabella helped me peel the eggs for Deviled eggs. As you can see Kenny is prepping Rozalee to watch football w/ him.
Good Luck to those of you going shopping today.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,
My sister-in-law, friend Megan and myself took the children to the opening night of Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo last night. The kids had a BLAST. We rode the train and saw an up close Polar Bear:) It's nice to take time off and go do something w/ family and friends.
Hope you all have a GREAT PHAT DAY

Happy Saturday

Well, I guess my Rozalee is going to be like me and drink wine, when she grows up. It must be the Italian in us:)
The kangaroo was Izabella's show and tell this month. Lishia, Jen and I brought the stuffed animal home on the plane from Melbourne. You should of seen the looks we got...let me remind you, I was also pregnant carrying an animal as big as me.
My little Rozalee is growing by the minute.
Have a Phat Weekend.

Wiggles Show

We finally got to see the Wiggles in concert. We went w/ Megan and Lyndsey. Our seats were on the floor, so the girls got to dance and have a great time. It was a great show.
Thanks for all the cards and e-mails about my grandma.

Saturday Night

Saturday evening my family showed up along w/ my great friend Megan and Dave.

Before I went on stage for finals, I received a phone call that my grandma had passed away. I was not into the show after that. I didn't place but I am OK w/ that. I know I looked the best I ever had before. It was neat having my girls backstage w/ me. Izabella was just staring at all the make-up and "sparkling suits" back there. I am very proud of what I have done w/ my body in 4 months.

Thanks for all the e-mails, cards and FOOD that I have received. It was great seeing everyone.
Jenny, Cindy, Beth and Joyce you are all a blast!!!!

Saturday after making the PIE

I could NOT resist, it's better than eating the entire pie:O)

Hello Everyone,

Well pre-judging is over.

I ended up driving down to the show myself. Kenny is bringing the girls tomorrow, w/ my mom and a couple friends. There are a few PHAT Campers here competing. It made me feel good when someone yelled "she had a baby 4 months ago". I'm very happy w/ how I look. I didn't do well in the 2 piece but better in my 1 piece. I've attached a few pics and will have more tomorrow. Latisha is here and my good friend Joyce.
Now off to shower and BED

Happy Halloween

The girls are w/ their great grandma:)
Rozalee was a bunny and Izabella a princess. They got MORE than enough candy. I only had a few m&m's.

This time next week, I'll be on stage.
Say a big prayer for me. I'll keep you updated. I will have pictures posted on Friday.
