Snow Day- an early start to Christmas Break!

The words "snow day " normal gets cheers in my house from the kids. Not this morning, JD was bummed that this would cancel the holiday dance the 6, 7 & 8th graders were to attend and MJ just said "I had the perfect outfit picked out and I have the perfect hair today!"

Now Christmas break would be starting a day early, that makes 18 days of my fridge being raided nonstop, I can't believe a 12 and 10 year old can be hungry so often, it is hard to believe they stay so

We got about a foot of snow this morning, enough to get Hubby stuck in our driveway. We pushed and push but could not get him out, finally we hook the jerk strap to my AWD van (did I ever mention I love my van) and we pulled it out. Guess we won't be taking his car anywhere this weekend:) I didn't get a picture of it, he would not have appreciate that.

Syd Update:

Syd had her PT evaluation Thursday, they pointed things out to me that I have never noticed about my child. She has a 15 degree tilt to her head, Her one shoulder is slightly higher than the other and when she looks left she tends to pulled her chin down. What does all this mean? Well we will go to PT twice a week for awhile and do exercises with her at home, none of which she will love. They taught us new ways to hold her so she is forced to use her left side more, things feel awkward right now but with practice we all will get the hang of it.

Biggest Loser update:

We had our last "last chance" workout last night, I'm sad to see it e
nd already but it has been 12 weeks and we all have made improvements that should carry us to our goals. Sunday we have our last weigh in and after pictures taken. I will post the pictures when that hit the paper. Here is a picture of part of out group and trainer, that Hubby took last night.

Renee, Jenna, Amanda, Me, Lucy, Mary, Janet, and Jeannie (in the orange)

The other Biggest loser news, Hubby has decided to join the next session. He starts January 18th. I'll keep you updated on his progress.

Early Christmas Gift:

Hubby gave me an early Christmas present! My Biggest Loser buddy Lucy (in the pink) invited me to a weekend (Fri- Mon) crop the last weekend in April (One of the 5 ladies in the room canceled and they needed to fill the space). It will be at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, I have not been to Mackinac Island in 15 or so years and have never been in the hotel. He said I deserved to get away (Aw, he is the best). I did not hesitate for a second in signing up, remember we have 4 children and CJ and Syd will only be 23 and 10 months old by then. This is a big, big deal in my house, mommy gone for 4 days and 3 nights.

Only 127 days to go, can you tell I'm excited?

Have a great weekend.
