This happens to me every single year. For some reason when the cooler weather hits, and that need for comfort food comes back, I loose my motivation to exercise. I haven't ran in 3 weeks. That is soooo bad! I want to hibernate. I think it's going to take some work to just force myself to feel motivated. Especially with all the good food in my future...I'm just going to have to suck it up, and "fake it till I make it"!
Ps: this app is awesome!!

Three times a day on average, malia has to endure this aggravating task. Let me just tell you....she HATES it. Need I say more? Well today, the second time around, I had pushed her away from the table to wipe her up, went to the kitchen to get the cloth, turned around to find her hiding behind the curtain. My little malia, you can run but you can't hide!! And thank you for wiping your dirty hands on my white curtains ;) I successfully wiped her up, much to her disapproval! Sorry malia, until you learn to eat cleanly, you will be dealing with this for some time. It's for your own good....and ours!
Well, here we are again. What you don't know is that I've been dying to blog from this fancy new iPad. The problem is, it's hard to do it from the web sight because you can't upload pics, change font etc...so we bought an app for $3. Turns out they haven't released the update to make it work on the new iOS5 on the new iPad. When you try to blog, it crashes....waste of $3. So I sucked it up, searched around and found blogsyapp. $5. So far, so good. It hasn't crashed yet! Heres to hoping. SO, this will be marked as MY first official blog from our iPad! Yay!!

I leave for 2 seconds, i think to start dinner. It seems Malia really needed this bin the create a fort for herself. In the pic below you can barely spot her little leg amongst the mess of clothes.
Here is a peak inside her new found "fort" of sorts. She didn't want me intruding on her. but I snuck a pic real quick ;) It is a mess, but I don't mind too much. There is no harm in her having a little fun!

There comes a time in every young child's life when they have to give up something they love dearly. Right now, for my little Malia, its the bottle. As she nears the ripe age of 2 in what seems faster than the speed of light (for mom and dad anyway) better to do it now, rather than later. I have read from many different sources, that the younger you do certain things, the easier it is. When you wait, they become more resilient and it becomes more of a challenge for you. Malia has been drinking from a cup with no problem for quite some time now. I believe I started with her around 8 or 9 months old. again, the earlier, the easier. So this is not a challenge in learning to use the cup, its phasing out the bottle that, at times, is a bit hard. we are down to one a day. just after nap time. Shes doing well with it really, but their are times, like this morning, that she has, I guess you could call them withdraws. But, my little Malia, this is what

anyway, she said shed pay me, to which I laughed. Im no professional, I said, I would feel guilty taking money from you. I told her to find some fabric she liked
and buy me some elastic and Id make it for her.
when I got home, I saw my pile of scrap fabric and thought Id just go ahead and make her one from what I had. She is always getting Malia little things here and there, I figured Id show my appreciation and just make her one.
They are a lot easier to make than I thought. These pics are from a second one I made for Holly. I like the alternating patterns. I got the pattern from the websight www.makeit-loveit.com
These are nice and big to hold a lot of bags too! and of course pleasing to the eye!

All you do is wash your kale, remove the stalk, chop it up, throw it in the oven until its crisp (about 15 minutes). season with what you like, but I find salt to do the trick.
And here is the result...
Deliciously crisp, flavorful, HEALTHY kale! YUM! :)
