Set back

So I knew going to Weight Watchers this morning that I most likely gained weight over the last week but I was not quite prepared for gaining 2.8 pounds! I decided to then stay for the meeting instead of leaving right after my weigh-in. I was really glad I did! The leader focused on what has been our accomplishments over the past year and addressed that December is a hard month for so many people. Therefore I am not dwelling on my weight gain but on my accomplishments in 2011-

I have lost 15 pounds since September!
I love going to Boot Camp! I never ever thought that sentence would come from me!
I am healthy and happy!

Here's to a better week ahead and staying focused!

Christmas time 2011

A couple weeks before Christmas my moms group meet at Swanson Nursery to see the live Reindeer. The kiddos had a blast playing on the sled.

I just realized how few pictures Bill and I took of Harrison opening presents and we did not get a family picture. Oh year! Harrison is a pro at opening gifts. We did video chat with our parents and then spent a quiet afternoon at home. After Harrison's nap we all watched the Cars movie (Harrison's second favorite Christmas present.) He is a HUGE fan of Tow Mater! My heart melted as Bill and Harrison snuggled on the couch together. Our friend Michael came over for dinner and we watched/I slept through Elf.

Merry Christmas and Many Blessings for 2012!

Whistler Adventure

On Friday afternoon Bill, Harrison and I drove to Whistler Canada for the weekend. Our friends Rod, Julie and their little boy Nic invited us to join them at their condo. Saturday morning we went to the village for coffee and an early lunch. Bill enjoyed going skiing Saturday afternoon. Thought the snow was not fresh he still loved skiing for a couple hours!

Harrison can now check off Canada from his list!

Seattle Aquarium toddler time

Harrison and I joined our friend William and his mommy Caroline for some fun at the Seattle Aquarium on Tuesday. Harrison enjoyed steering the ship!

So much fun touching the sea creatures!

All ready for the rain outside!

I would say it was a very successful play date!

So behind...

Today I feel overwhelmed and thought I would take a moment to vent while Harrison is avoiding a much needed nap and is crying out from his crib! Overwhelmed because...

1. China pictures are still NOT put together

2. Christmas newsletter hasn't been started

3. Baby book is behind on pictures and milestones

4. My floors are covered in a black dust from this week of converting from oil to gas heating

Hmmm...I think that is it for now. Back to work on cleaning the floors!
