Christmas Program Night

Mrs. VanWinkle's class did a wonderful program and the kids did just great. Afterwards we all came back here as you can see the herd was waiting to be let in. Then Dean, Lindsey and Sierra polished off one of the Christmas baskets we received...I'm surprised they didn't puke

Health Tidbits for Tuesday

Cinnamon & Cayenne pepper are great for boosting metabolism

Put Flax seed oil in smoothies or on your salad, chicken has great health benefits

Cardio exercise will burn calories at that moment. With strength training you will continue to burn calories for 24 hours. You will start gaining lean muscle mass

Muscle weighs more than not use the scale

Drink the recommended daily amount of water as it will help flush the toxins out of your body.

Put 1/2 container of Epson Salt in the bathtub and sit in it for 30 minutes. When you get out you can see a ring around the tub...those are toxins

Buy a brush you only use for your skin-hard but not too hard. Before your shower brush your skin towards your heart and do this all over your body. This may sound weird but it feels really good.

The tree is up!!

A couple of weeks ago Mike and I went to Lowe's looking for a mantle but they were very expensive. So, we found a kit where you build the mantle yourself and Mike went to town. I helped stain it but he did the rest. Please click on the picture so you can take note of our favorite Christmas decoration!!!

Hidey Ho Folks. It's Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo and sits next to the TV-we love him. And of course the DeMarco family has their stockings hung by the chimney with care...We have Luisa, Raquel and of course Phillipe and Rosella DeMarco-the incredibly hot latin lovers.


Why do men always get mad at women when they are working on projects? Does your husband cuss when he can't fix the sink or PROPERLY UNTANGLE THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!!!

What's going on around our house.

Man this year has flown by and Christmas is just around the corner. Rachel has a birthday party on Saturday and Lindsey has an overnight party on Saturday. Friday Mike and I are going to my company Christmas party. Saturday night Mike and I are going to hear his friend speak and then maybe a hour out for coffee or a walk along the water front with no children. We like to walk along the waterfront in Everett and especially Seattle. At Christmas time they put lights on the ferries so it looks cool to see them going back and forth to the Olympic Penisula area. Sunday we will get our tree and decorate. Wishing mom and Uncle Ryan would be with us on Christmas as we miss them so much. Shana is having a cookie exchange on Sunday the 16th and then she will be coming over to our house the next weekend to exchange gifts for the kids and make my mom's famous Gingerbread men(anatomically correct of course). Rachel's class goes this Friday morning to see the Nutcracker as they do a one hour version for the kiddo's. We are doing a white elephant gift party with the neighbors on Christmas Eve so I have to find some really sick stuff around my house...probably won't be a problem.

Busy Busy all the time.

Change in Diagnosis

Ryan is home and I talked with him last night. He seems in good spirits but is worried about his school work. Doctors found a virus and say now that it is viral meningitis and not bacterial which is better. He has to go back for a follow up next week since they had still run a few more tests.
