Anyway here are my goals:
1. To track my food intake as well as exercise daily on sparkpeople.com.
2. To cook at least 5 nights a week. By cook I mean actually cook - frozen pizza does not count.
3. To hit the gym at least twice a week and run at least twice a week as well.
My goal is to lose 5 lbs a month which seems reasonable enough; but more than that to change my overall eating habits - eating out less, cooking healthy foods more often, etc.

Friday night we went to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party - we had hot cocoa, froze to death, rode rides, and of course saw the amazing Christmas parade. Here's us on Main Street with the castle in the background:
We went shopping at the newly redone outlet malls. Mommy got nothing but the kids made out like bandits. With a scary pine reindeer thing at the exit:
And we went to Wonderworks, which the kids loved.

You have to take training for CPR, leadership, first aid, camp, etc. You have to deal with cookies and registration forms and health slips and financial reports, etc. And 10 crazy girls!
Today we had holiday baking day at my house - 10 girls baking with melted chocolate, marshmallows, gobs of sprinkles, frosting, the whole nine yards. They had a blast, my floor may never be the same though.
All on 3 hours of sleep. Not bad.
FYI: Girl Scout Cookies go on PreSale Jan 11th - if you want some let me know.

Tristan: How come?
Tori: Because you're just fun and I like to play with you.
Me: Now tearing up while writing Christmas cards in a chair nearby.
Tori: What are you crying about over there?
Me: They are tears of joy that you guys love each other so much.
Tori: Well that's stupid, who cries when their happy?
So some sweet moments have sweet endings. Some dont. Guess which one this was?

Maybe its just me but doesn't it seem like the kid that wants Barbie on their speakers is a tad to young for an iPod?!?!
My dr kit had a thermometer, stethescope, shot, blood pressure cuff and the thing that doubled as an eye and ear looker!

Tori had a solo which she did pretty well on it. She was also a ribbon dancer, dont ask, and sang in the group choir and had a blast with all the hand motions!
All in all it was a long night of lots of kids music but its always fun to see your kids sing or perform in some way.

Tristan's head is all stuffed up and he keeps sneezing so home he stays for the day...but its hard to keep a boy down. He wants to run and play and ride bike. He is literally sitting on the floor wearing a knights helmet pretending to drive the stool that goes with his drum set because I won't let him get up. However he randomly stands up and runs and is in permanent whiny mode.
Tori on the other hand is about to hack up a lung so she is home today as well. She has literally done 2 weeks worth of homework. Unfortunately along with super student mode she is also in "sass" mode where everything she says is dripping with the sarcasm of a 16 year old.
I cannot wait for 5:30, I think I need to run to the grocery store this evening.
On my list:

I have a snowman collection that lots of people have contributed too. They are cute and festive and provide my bit of winter despite the 80 degree temperatures this month. But more than that each and every one of them has a story - a fun day of shopping,a craft made with mom, someone special that thought of me, or a gift little hands picked out!
Our table is not super fancy, not super expensive, not super special - except that we eat as a family there daily, art projects and homework are completed there, we've shared laughs with friends, desserts with neighbors and meals with family. So at Christmas it gets a little special treatment.
Also in our home we believe the reason for the season and the source of our celebration is a tiny baby born in a manger, put to death on a cross, and risen and waiting his return so decorating would not be complete without our nativity.
