8th time a charm????

This is the Gym I joined yesterday.

This is my 8th place in about 7 years. Here is the record of my various attempts to keep in shape via a gym membership.
Joined the YMCA 4 times from 1999 - 2006, Ladies Workout Express - Once, 24 Hour fitness - Twice.
Todd is skeptical, but this time I really am determined .... Of course that is what I said last time. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Has anyone ever eaten there? For some reason, Todd and I really love this place lately. We have been going after church and it really hits the spot. We recommend the vegetarian burrito. Yummy!!!


These are the new stockings I made this year.
It was totally fun.

Out with the Old

So this weekend we did our annual toy cleanup. Before Christmas each year,the kids sort through all their toys and take out everything they don't play with or don't want. My rule is that all their toys have to fit in the closets or we give them away. (I know, I am strict). We then take them to Goodwill so another family can enjoy them. They kids really like doing this. Of course they had to tease Landon and put his favorite toys in the box - Todd's Tech helmet, hummer and guitar. I thought it was funny because he got so upset. Just look at the pictures below. Poor Landon - 3 sisters to put up with.

Landon getting a little mad.

About to have a major meltdown.

Notice Savannah my normally very sweet child, laughing at her brother.

Major meltdown!

I will say, afterwards when we told him it was a joke, he was ok and thought it was funny too.

Future Quarterback

Landon who is 3 1/2 is totally obsessed with football, especially the Dallas Cowboys. He knows all their names, positions and numbers. His favorite player is Troy Aikman and runner up is T.O. Here is a picture of him wearing his cowboy gear and showing us his football face. We got him football pads for christmas so that should be lots of fun!
