Building Santa’s Sleigh in time for Christmas

by | Nov 16, 2009 | Featured | 2 comments

We're getting closer to being ready for the Nov. 27 arrival of Santa Claus at our house in Balch Springs, TX.  This weekend, Ashleigh, 5, spent a good amount of time with me doing retouches on the sleigh we built last year.  We've got a lot of work to do to be ready for the 27th, and we're also starting a new workout program with EA SPORTS Active using "More Workouts," their new product that goes on sale tomorrow, Nov. 17.

It's a busy time at our house.  Which is keeping things fun and the excitement is building.  This weekend, I also was able to put up a canopy of lights over our swimming pool and do some festive decorating in the backyard.  More videos are coming. 

And a reminder of our big priority for 2009–supporting the Balch Springs Police Departments 23rd annual Santa Cop program, where we're encouraging those who come see Santa to also bring an unwrapped toy, gift certificate, etc that can be presented to the police department and then given to boys and girls in the city whose parents simply cannot afford Christmas presents for their children this year.  Last year, they were able to help 150 families.  We're hoping to reach more in 2009. 

Stop back soon.  There will be a new video by week's end of the Sleigh and the beginning decorations of Santa's Workshop and landing pad in our front yard.

    I hope you’ll keep posting about the new Wii workout I’m waiting for mine to arrive and I’ll be doing it too. Good luck to you. I’ve been doing the Active Sports for 3 months now, not a bit of weight loss but great muscles are under there.

    Without a doubt, Erin, I surely will be posting new video material about EA SPORTS Active. This is my new Web home and I’m going to do lots here. Thanks for checking in. EA SPORTS Active is an important part of losing weight, I know, it’s been successful for me, but so is eating right and the like. Keep at it. This is something we all have to keep at. It doesn’t get fixed overnight and it never gets easier!
