Losing weight?!?

Anyway, I have not been doing real good with this weight loss thing over the holidays but, I have been trying to cut back the last little bit. I went to update my weight loss ticker this morning and was surprised to see I had lost between 2-3 lbs from when I had last updated it! Anyway, about 10 lbs. lost total!!!!! That's exciting to me! I'm going to keep plugging away. I bought a size 22 jacket and skirt combo (it was on major clearance) and hope to wear it for Daniel's ordination in July! We will see! There are pics of it below. I think it is very nice and hope I accomplish my goal.

Our New Addition

I hate it when people say they have a new addition to their family and it ends up being an animal. Henceforth, I am not going to say that we have a new addition to our family but to our house. We got a cat this last week. It's former name was/is Smokey. We are not sure if we are going to rename it or not. Guess we will decide whenever!!! :)

Two happy girls because they have a kitty cat!






The cat . . . whatever his name is! Any suggestions?

Josiah in the snow.

I suppose I should post a picture of Josiah as well since he went out too! He kept on loosing his gloves though and then would cry because his hands were cold. It's much nicer to take a little older kid out!!!! :) But . . . the little ones enjoy it too!

Snow!

We had a snow storm today so while Daddy was out snow blowing and working hard, Mommy and the kiddos built a snowman. Daddy did have to take a break and put in place the middle snowball. Thanks daddy! It turned out really cute. Also, I will try to post a picture of the finished product later if I can find some batteries. The ones in my camera died! Hope you enjoy!

Our Christmas 2008

We always have a special breakfast before we open presents on Christmas morning. Here is the rest of them eating breakfast!Daniel playing with his remote controlled dragonfly. He seemed to like it.

All of the kids playing in the playhouse Felicia got for Christmas.

Josiah opened some clothes. There was some fuzzy jammies in this package. He instantly took them and put his thumb in his mouth. He loves to suck his thumb with something soft in his hand. Hopefully he will get over this some day!


The girls with lollipops we got for them. Don't you love Felicia's teeth?
