Josh's Lost Tooth!

It finally happened! My baby lost his first tooth on Thanksgiving morning. This has been a much anticipated event for Joshua :) He has been hoping for that wiggly tooth to come out for a couple weeks now...I mean this sucker was really hanging by a thread! Well he finally lost it while having his bowl of Cheerios for breakfast.

Unfortunately, he ate it! My baby's first lost tooth and he eats it!!! (Mom's not bummed at all can you tell?) Well, he was pretty sure now that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't come to our house because there wasn't any tooth...but, I assured him that the TF is magic and she already knows that he lost the tooth and if he just left a note to explain she would still leave him some $$.

Of course the TF came through and he found a whole $1 bill under his pillow the next morning. He was very excited!

Turkey Day is Here!...and some new LO's

Geesh, can you believe it's already Thanksgiving? And I personally want to go door to door and slap my neighbors around...I CAN'T believe all the Christmas lights up already! I'm all for taking advantage of the decent weather and putting them up early...but for God's sake DON'T turn them on!!! Oh, well...I'll be decorating and feeling a bit more festive on Friday so forgive the rant.

Body for LIFE is going well and even though I'm not supposed to weigh myself I couldn't help it :) So far I've lost 7lbs. since we started and I know I've lost inches because my skinny jeans are getting baggy. Now if I can only figure out how to bottle this feeling...I love being able to go in a regular store and buying the cute clothes off the sale rack...not the plus store with the dowdy clothes that make me look twice my age. Another week and a half and we'll take measurements again to see how much progress we've made.

Here are some recent pages I've done...enjoy!

55 lbs. and counting...

I have been meaning to do a "Before & After" page of myself and I finally did it! Wow, it's funny how few photos there are of me "before"...I wonder why??? Still, it's seeing the comparison that will continue to motivate me. The sizes are going down, the scale is going down, shopping for clothes is fun again...what more can I ask?

The quote by Christopher Reeves that I used says it all:
"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable."

Body for Life

So, this is week 1 of Body for LIFE and so far, so good... Lori and I decided to give it a shot since we're both in need of a routine shake-up. This 12 week program that alternates weight training with cardio 6 days a week, plus diet promises to build more muscle so you can burn more fat. Plus we get to eat 6 times a day (little meals that is) which has proved to be a bit challenging...but want to know the "real" challenge? Getting through the holidays!!!! What were we thinking???? Hahaha! We're two strong girls...we CAN do it! We took "before" pics (which I won't post, yet!) and measurements, so we can track our results. Wish us luck and much willpower!

Ok...better late than never, right?

Trick-or-treating was lots of fun and the weather was perfect! The first time I can remember pulling out the lawn chairs and sitting outside handing out candy! Kayla has exited the princess stage and was a scary witch this year. Joshua following with his new Star Wars obsession was Obi Wan Kenobi.

Here is a pic of my two ghouls, enjoy! :)
