OK, I'M A DORK!!

Yes, I really am a dork! It must be this diet I am on.....I'm not loosing pounds, I'm loosing brain cells! I thought I had completely lost all my journaling on my blog. Even put a new post out asking for help. Well, after working on it for at least an hour and a half, I finally realized that I had the font color on "white" not black. GEEEeeeez!
Two days without any weight gone. First two days I loose 4 lbs. and now, nothing. I will give it one more day and see how it goes. I must say that I do get hungry and 500 calories (even with the HCG drops) just doesn't take cut it.

I still wanted to post more of our Christmas holiday pictures. I know that it won't be very interesting to some of you, but our family and friends will enjoy it. So bear with me in this post.

Here we are in Jami and Mike's kitchen on Christmas Eve making our big dinner of turkey, ham and swedish meatballs (200 of them).


Then it was time to just play and hang-out together for the evening.





We had a "show us your muscles" contest....


played in the hot tub....

Put cookies, milk and some reindeer oatmeal with sprinkles out for Santa...

a final Good Bye.


Sofia took her first bath in the kitchen sink with Hanna washing her.
At first she didn't want to touch the bubbles.
But she soon figured it out and had a blast splashing water all over the kitchen!




A few days before the kids went back to Washington, Coleman lost his first tooth.
He had gone in to take a nap and came out a few minutes later to tell us he had pulled it out but lost it in the bedroom. After a short hunt we found it on the floor beside his bed.

That night he put it in a glass of water for the "tooth fairy".


The next day that tiny little tooth grossed $1.50 from the tooth fairy!
Boy, have times changed!!

There are tons more pictures but I don't want to bore you with all of them. For us they are a reminder of the great Christmas we had with our family and friends.
It was busy, loud, messy, wild, funny, loving, crowded, and wonderful!
We are blessed.
XOXO Nancy
