WW Update

7 lbs down! Whoopedee Whooo Hooo! And I'm down a size....yay!

Now I just need to get a good groove going with exercising. I'm working full time M-F from 1130pm til 8am and I just haven't figured out where to fit it in....I sleep while the kiddies are in school.....then time to get up and pick up from school and do all the mom type things.

I really do love WW...and would recommend it to anyone and everyone! It really is working...I'm losing around 2lbs a week just by eating less and eating more good for you things.....and the best part is that I can still have ice cream and donuts if I want to use my points for that....and I sure have!

My dad came for a visit. He came to see the kids and to see North Stars play, Cinderella. It was soooo good to see him and to spend time with him! I was so glad he could see our actors in person instead of just on DVD. He spoiled us all rotten while he was here. He's a wonderful dad and I really love him so much! Thanks a ton DAD! You are awesome!
I'm very bummed that this one turned out so blurry.....

Grandad and the thespians after the play. Oh....also, Josh is a singer...he has a lovely voice and surprised many.....we had people coming up to us saying "I didn't know Josh could sing!" and we said "Neither did we!!!" Megan and Zack were very entertaining!

Our Jedi

On Sunday I chatted on the phone with my new VT (Visiting Teacher, a church thing). She is also involved with Primary (Sunday School for the kiddies) and she told me the cutest story about Joe. They were playing some kind of beanbag game and the object was to toss the beanbag and hit a target of some sort. Well, when Joe had his turn he tossed the beanbag and it hit the target and he exclaimed "YES!!! I KNEW I COULD DO IT!!!

Some Stuff

*Hannah is recovering splendidly! She says it doesn't hurt at all anymore and she's back to her fun, cute self. She is back to loving on me and giving me hugs and kisses all the time....I just love it, for one day, I know, she will be a teenager and those things will be a fond memory. The best part of all is that there was no cancer...just a bad egg....hee hee....

*Joe is doing so well in school! No calls from the principal thus far....*fingers crossed and knock on wood* He likes his teacher but misses his kindergarten teacher so much. He begged and begged and we finally went to see Miss Steele on Friday...he hugged her three times! And afterwards told me he loved her more than me and when I told him that made me sad he told me "okay...I love her the same amount as you". I feel better...*hmph*

*Matthew is liking his new school...until night time and then he doesn't like it anymore. I've not figured that one out yet....I think he's just tired and needs to go to bed. He's making new friends and still playing the saxophone. It's nice that he can ride his bike or more long drives to take and pick up kids! Woo hoo!

*Zack, Josh and Megan are getting ready to perform in their school play, Cinderella. My dad is coming all the way from California to see it. Yay! I think Megan is liking high school....she isn't a big sharer (and have I mentioned she doesn't like hugs and kisses).

*Josh got a job at Raising's somewhat like Chick-fil-A....just chicken sold there and the best dinner toast EVER!!! YUM!!

*We have a crazy neighbor. He called the cops on us because "we are transmitting messages to his house". WHAT!!???? The Police just wanted to warn us...warn us of what is still he just crazy or violent too? I saw one of the police officers last night while I was working in the ER...he was bringing some other individual in to visit us....I asked him if we should worry about our neighbor hurting anyone, his response...."As long as I've known him he's never hurt anyone".....after he left I long has he known him? A week?

*I joined Weight I'm watching my weight.....I'm 5 days in...weigh in is on Friday. It's not as hard as I thought it would be and I even think it's kinda that weird? I wonder how many points I'd have to use to have some of that dinner toast??

*I will leave you with some evidence of what happens when a four and six year old get a hold of the camera....
