I am in complete pain because she is jumping (and I do mean JUMPING) on my knees. She's loving it though but I couldn't walk for a few minutes.
This is just a few minutes before that...we were having so much fun. =)

* Hubby: consider yourself warned for next year
I also plan on getting a personal trainer to kick my big butt. My goal is to get in some serious workouts before our big trip to Disney so it doesn’t kill me and I don’t get exhausted too fast. I am excited and nervous about this change but mostly I am SO EXCITED! It is seriously something I have wanted to do for years but never felt like I was worth it to spend that kind of money. Well, now I feel like I am finally worth it. I still don’t like spending the money but you know what? I’d rather be healthy at this point. This should be the kick in my butt that I need to make some healthy changes, and I would rather spend the money on this versus another diet plan!
I am trying not to get too excited about this though. When I was in college I got on an exercise kick and dropped a serious amount of weight without trying hard. In fact, I got to my smallest size while I did that and weight watchers – a freaking size 4. I don’t expect to get that small again…mostly because I am a lot older (sigh). Honestly, I am mostly doing this to be a good role model for my kiddo AND to get my blood pressure down. Now, I do hope that I turn into the incredible shrinking Holly but if that doesn’t happen I am not going to cry over it. I just can’t wait to see what happens! I’ll keep you posted.

I have to have hope that this will stop. That people will live with one another and treat each other with the respect that they deserve.
I have to have hope that this will happen or I my heart is going to break into a million pieces.
I just have to have hope.
As I look at families that are struggling to keep their children alive from illnesses, I just cannot comprehend how other people are killing them. Every time I see or hear about it happening a piece of me dies. I will never get it back. I have actually stopped listening or watching the news just because of this reason. And, sadly, I still learn about it without trying. That’s how often it is happening now.
Please. I beg of you. Stop. I have to have hope and faith that people will start being human again. Love each other. Please. I have to have hope for my daughter and her future on this earth.

I don't know which Libby loves more - dancing or the muppets (specifically Miss Piggy). Fortunately, she has found a way to combine them. Here is a video of Libby dancing with her Daddy while watching a dance routine between Miss Piggy, Kermit, and cast. Normally, she tries to do a longer tap routine while Miss Piggy does it...This is something I will always cherish.
