Countdown to Christmas: Early Gift Opening and The Polar Express 

It is Day 8 of our Countdown to Christmas and here’s what we’ve been up to:

Hot Toys
The girls got an early Christmas gift from their Dad’s coworker. They LOVE these stuffed animals and were both super excited. They both slept very well with their new friends. 🙂


Best Christmas Gifts
‘Ai got to open ANOTHER early gift. She got this cute little “Instaglam” sweater from my sister. She fell in love instantly. (And so did I). She can’t wait till she actually gets the chance to wear it out.


Christmas Movies
The girls and I finally caught “The Polar Express” on Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” program.

GRAND PRIZE: EatSmart Bathroom Scale
The EatSmart Precision Digital Body Analyzer is not your ordinary bathroom scale because it quickly and easily measures weight, body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass using electrode technology. This scale is perfect for individuals who are serious about taking control of their health. The Precision Digital Body Analyzer Scale stores up to 8 different users’ personal profiles and will be able to recognize these users as soon as they step onto the scale. This auto recognition software makes it simple to operate, since all you have to do is stand on the platform barefoot and it identifies who you are based on past weight. Not having to select a user gives it the same functionality as a basic bathroom scale with added benefit of % body fat, % body muscle, % body water and bone mass. Let’s not forget about its universal EatSmart features! The Precision Digital Body Analyzer uses “Step-On” technology which means no more tapping to turn on your scale. It measures up to 400lbs and will display an accurate readout to the nearest .2 lbs. on the oversized 3.7″ LCD display. Its sleek design and slim profile fits perfectly into any surrounding. Purchase here.

Many bloggers have come together to bring you some amazing prizes! Each prize is worth a minimum of $15, but some are worth much more. There is no limit to how many you can win – so enter them all! GOOD LUCK!
