Christmas Part 1 {2011 Christmas morning}

 I am not believing that Christmas has come and gone! Usually by this time I am so claustrophobic that I am super ready to get all the Christmas decor down and start a new year! That is so not the case this year! I have enjoyed our decor and am really sad to put it up! Thankfully we are gonna keep it ALL up til the New Year :)

We had the BEST Christmas with Noah this year! On Christmas Eve we started a new tradition. Instead of reading 'The Night before Christmas' we read a kid's version of Jesus' birth. We literally piled on top of each other. Todd sat in the rocking chair, I sat in his lap, and Noah in my lap. As I read the story, tears came down my cheeks b/c I was so happy to be sharing this amazing story with my son! It was special moment! 

On Christmas day we did some house hoping!! We started out at our house and did Santa.
Noah's favorite toy from Santa.

And lots more fun......

 Eating some 'choc choc' :)

 And down they go!!

 Maggie liked her new toy too (and her beggin strips)

Then we got ready and headed to my parent's house, the first stop on our house hoping marathon!
Part two coming soon!!!

Weight Loss Journey

This month has been HARD! All the sweets and yummy food all around is hard to resist! And remember that goal of mine where I was just going to have ONE treat at the Christmas party, well FAIL! I had several :) 

And I am not gonna get all down on myself about it! I enjoyed myself and Tis the Season :D I did work out today (thanks Susan for the encouragement)!!! I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and was LOVING it! I had a moment in the middle where it got hard, but then all of a sudden I was in my groove! After the elliptical I did a few bicep curls and tricep exercises! Then I did a few crunches! I am proud of myself!!!!

I have not even gotten on a scale and just not worrying so much this month! As long as I don't go over my original wt I am okay! Next month is hit it and get it month! I am just shocked that I have even been able to work out some! And super glad that I enjoyed it! I swear I actually need it!!!!

December New Goals: 
  • Don't go over original wt
  • try to work out atleast twice a week
  • Enjoy Life!!!!!
