Santa 2012

Santa 2012 was a success!  Last year Ellie wasn't quite so sure.  This year before we even arrived she stated she was gonna sit on Santa's lap!  I'd heard fabulous thing about the Santa at Northpark Mall in Oklahoma City.  It is an older smaller mall without many stores.  Everyone always says the Santa is fantastic and the lines aren't long! 
We went around 4:30 this afternoon. We were in our car heading to dinner at 5:30 and that included a stop at the fountains AND in the upscale pet boutique!

Gingerbread House & Changes

Last night we made a gingerbread house as a family.  Or should I say I made a gingerbread house....Ellie and Steven ate icing and candy.  It isn't the greatest but I consider it a success because it didn't collapse!  Love making these memories with Ellie.  All I have right is an iPhone photo...I definitely need to get my camera unloaded we've made lots of fun Christmas crafts over the past week for some fun grandparent gifts!

Now for the big changes.....Starting next week I will be at home with Ellie full time.  We know this will be an adjustment for everyone but think it is what is best for our family!  We had intended on Ellie starting a Pre-School program after she was around next August.  Well we had been on a waiting list and they called in November with an opening.  It was our top pick program.  We couldn't risk NOT taking that opening and then not getting a spot in their 3 year old program.  I am excited for Ellie I think the structure will be great for her and she will learn so much!  We are also going to take another Kindermusik class so that should be fun for both of us!  I am sure we will find plenty to keep us both busy!

As promised I've put together a post on the Rodan + Fields products that I've been using.  I started awhile back on the Anti-Age Regimen.  My biggest complaints with my skin were pore size and my under eye area (dark circles & puffiness). So with my Anti-Age Regimen I have added in the Multi-Function Eye Cream.  The eye cream is by my far my favorite product but I have definitely seen a difference in my entire eyes aren't near as dark and my pores are noticeably smaller.  So much so that I've been getting compliments on my skin from people that have no idea that I've been using something new.  I've noticed such a difference that on the weekends I've been going out and about with tinted moisturizer instead of my normal foundation!  Now I realize some will say you are only in your early thirties you don't need an Anti-Age Regimen but there is no better time to start taking care of your skin than NOW!

Steven suffers from Seborrheic Dermatitis on his face.  It is pretty easily kept under control with a pricey steroid cream and frequent dermatologist visits. He also has to be extra careful with what type of face wash that he uses.  We decided to get him started on the Soothe Regimen.  As of right now his face isn't near as oily and he hasn't had ANY flares of his Seborrhea...this is VERY rare when starting a new product for him!  So hopefully the Soothe products are the answer and we can cut out the expensive steroid cream and derm visits!

I have some other friends that recently started using products and I can't wait to see their results!

We have lots of fun Christmas gift ideas and stocking stuffers available right now!  Please let me know if you have ANY questions about any of the products!
